Last February at the Spotify office in Stockholm we held the Music Hack Day hackathon.
Music Hack Day is an international 24-hour event where programmers, designers and artists come together to conceptualize, build and demo the future of music. Software, hardware, mobile, web, instruments, art - anything goes as long as it’s music related.
Our team which consisted of David Lindkvist (@14islands) and the awesome guys from Plan8 (@Plan8_Music) created a multi-user collaborative step sequencer with NodeJS. So that means that several users can connect with their mobile devices or desktops and play a step sequencer together hosted on one of the devices connected. One device will be able to act as the main controller for all sound controlling filter and pitch.
