Onomatrack: Quick Recording of User’s Rhythmic Ideas Using Onomatopoeia
While creating music, musicians often want to record their rhythm pattern ideas. If this cannot be done quickly and with minimum effort, their ideas could be forgotten or documented unclearly. In this paper, we propose a system named Onomatrack, which uses onomatopoeias to easily record complicated rhythmic ideas. Using onomatopoeias, users can choose their desired sound quickly and intuitively without searching for it in lists of sound databases. Users can input sounds by writing down onomatopoeias directly to the system as a “rough sketch” of their rhythmic ideas, and can adjust musical parameters by changing the size and position of the onomatopoeias.
