Description: Feel the magic of Machine Learning in this new experiment that combines over 44,000 sounds from Freesound.org, a data set created by Kyle McDonald and a touch of Cabbibo weirdness. Run your hands through a cloud of sound, select your favourite clips and make a drum set from this aural smorgasbord!
Review: For most people, Audio Forager is not something worth noting, but there will be people who love sounds who will enjoy this. Let me explain, this is a collection of sort of 44,000 sounds and sound effects. The idea is you learn the connection between them and bring them closer or further away from you. This creates a weird spatial audio experience that some people will enjoy and others will simply not understand. The good news is that it is free so you can give it a go if you are not sure. I personally messed about with it for a long while but didn’t find much use for it.
