What is O-Generator?

O-Generator is a 4/4 bar of music turned into a circle. It is broken up into 16ths. Each of the concentric circles is a musical instrument; drums, bass guitar, piano, saxophone and so on. The play head sweeps 360 degrees illuminating as it passes through them. Students make a choice on where to place the notes and beats in the individual smaller pads for each instrument. They create the music and develop it over multiple bars if they choose. O-Generator allows students to see and hear the music as they work!

Teaching with O-Generator

O-Generator has 3 types of lessons, Compose, Play and Group Lessons. A Step-by-step audio tutor guides students through a lesson.
