This came out in 2013. Why did I not know this came back again. Why why why.

I investigated a little, and my suspicion was correct - the maximum length of each loop doubles with each new version.

Well, kind of. I think. Maybe. The change of tempo in 3 complicates it a bit. I'm no musicologician.

2013? This is way old mate, 2005 maybe?

Oh, man. This makes me feel like a musical genius in a way that is almost certainly not real.

I wonder how long I can entertain myself just by watching this do its thing on Shuffle.

Probably longer than I really want to admit.

Ha! I remember making a track called German Cat Had Deadly Strain of Bird Flue for Aural Times with a similar toy back in 2006, except that it was a trio of sheep musicians, and also it didn't keep super solid time if I remember right.

And holy butts, even it's even still up and functional. SHEEP BEATS. Let's see if I can line it up with Incredibox in some weird polyrhythm situation.

Very fun - thanks for this.

Neat. Hey, look how good I am at this! If you want to add a little melody, try Tonematrix; in certain registers they blend quite nicely.
