It is with great pride that, after almost 5 years of development, 19 alpha and 9 beta releases, dozens of nightly builds, more than 30 workshops, and hundreds of feedback from early users on everything from its sound to its interface, we are pleased to release version 1 of the Fluid Corpus Manipulation Toolset.
It brings an ecosystem of extensions to Max, SuperCollider, and Pure Data, for programmatic sound bank exploration via machine listening and machine learning algorithms. It also provides a learning platform, and a forum to discuss these questions of musicking with datasets.
Try it, learn it, discuss it at flucoma.org
