MadHelix

MadHelix is a Java Swing-based graphical frontend for SoundHelix, a program which generates music based on entered (or generated) text and plays it back. It is in an early state of development so please let me know of any issues you have with it.

How to Build

Run the ant command in the main folder and then run the generated MadHelix.jar file.

How to Use

  1. Once the MadHelix interface shows, it should say 'Ready' at the top. If it says anything else, regardless of whether the rest of the program works, please report it on the Issues page.
  2. Enter any text in the 'Song name' field and choose a style.
  3. Click the play button to listen to the result. SoundHelix will then load and the generated song will begin playing. If SoundHelix does not load after 30 seconds, please report it.

Credits
