We’re no strangers to love
You know the rules and so do I
A full commitment’s what I’m thinking of
You wouldn’t get this from any other guyI just wanna tell you how I’m feeling
Gotta make you understandNever gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt youWe’ve known each other for so long
Your heart’s been aching but you’re too shy to say it
Inside we both know what’s been going on
We know the game and we’re gonna play it
And if you ask me how I’m feeling
Don’t tell me you’re too blind to seeNever gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt youNever gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt youNever gonna give, never gonna give
(Give you up)We’ve known each other for so long
Your heart’s been aching but you’re too shy to say it
Inside we both know what’s been going on
We know the game and we’re gonna play itI just wanna tell you how I’m feeling
Gotta make you understand

Midi sampler for Nina

Some time ago I had the chance to see my daughter learn to play video games by leading her to these games:

Cool thing about it is that it has different groups of games to teach how to play with moving the cursos, clicking, and dragging stuff.

Sampler game for kids

There’s this music sample game that works as a sampler where by clicking the owls you switch on a sample that will loop and together with the others, a whole arrangement is looped.

Owl music looper game 

So, some time after that (that is, today, this Sunday), I grabbed my Akai LPD8 MIDI controller and started hacking a few lines to check if Web MIDI could help with triggering the samples.

It did work. Unfortunately the whole code for the game objects is defined inside a closure that wouldn’t allow to me to do stuff easily but it worked.

I’m still working on it and it seems that it’s gonna be super easy to recreate the game with other custom figures.
