CAmenti records and then slices a sample into segments. It plays those segments rhythmically with a generative algorithm called Cellular Automata (CA). The CA is made up of 256 rules and selecting a different rule will play the segments in a different pattern. Set master in/out points in your root sample. Stitch segments together to form sustained (uninterrupted) sounds. Turn segments on and off with the keyboard keys. Sample drums and make a new rhythm! Sample sustained sounds to make a choppy bounce!
