I'm a non-musician who is interested in pumping a wav file, say of a
symphony, into a black box which automatically cuts it all up into bit-
phrases, scrambles them, and then reconstructs the pieces into a wav. The
program would be more akin to a "blue box" than a black one because its
function would be to recycle whatever was tossed into it.
I am aware that there are many excellent programs out there that edit wav
files, but are they not limited to real-time, manual cutting and
splicing? This is a serious limitation if one is thinking about
pulverizing a massive wav file into thousands of 1-2 sec units, a job
probably more suited for some small program specifically designed for
that particular task, like a small appliance that is good for only one
thing. I'm not looking for a kitchen but for a kitchen blender, or a
cappucino maker, or a juicer. Is anyone familiar with such a musical
Sorry if this is OT.
