Would be good. I am making slow but steady progress coding games in Python, so reckon I can at least grab random samples and play them in sequence against a beat pretty easily as a first step.

fingers crossed

I obviously cannot speak or pass judgement on the rational behind it, because here in the U.S. we don't use logic or reasoning.

So it's Sunday and I had a go at this. Probably be 2020 until it is ready given my level of Python programming skill!
So far I am using Sigma/Steve's sample set and I have managed to get a 500x500 window to pop-up with a title / DV logo / background image, and it to loop a 85bpm beat on an audio channel.

What do we actually want this thing to do? Choose samples from a list, random combo? If someone can be bothered to write a basic "User Requirements Spec" (in corporate lingo) it will at least give me something to aim for.
If anyone wants the code I can post it up (it's only a few lines at the mo').
You'll need Python 3.2.3 and Pygame 1.9.2. Though that means Windows, Linux or Mac is o.k.

Sorry got this up and running a couple weekends ago. I do req writing for work, but i thought a vid could do the job. Will post a vid asap.when u see how it works its quite clever, its all about tagging the cut samples well.

Nice vid man, although it works better when you select the expert ini file, as you had it in "beginner" mode there and the combos it creates with my sample set (which wasn't great to begin with really!) are a bit disjointed at times. In the expert mode, it sounds a lot more like a real DJ rather than a computer program.

Pretty much what I expected. I'll probably never finish it but its a nice project to try. Not sure pygame is the best route for me but I'll have a go.

I stumbled on this again recently, it might fit nicely with some of the things I'm adding to the tablist.net web looper (http://www.tablist.net/weblooper).  Thanks for the video I wasn't able to get it up and running, but I have the files which should be helpful.

wicked. proper gutting that this stopped working after xp. Would be amazing to have a fresh version of this, backed up with a fuckin huge library of beats.

This thread is a stark reminder of where I didn't get to using Python. Does anyone have the original sample packs? I seem to have lost them when moving PCs. I have been pissing around with C# for fun, so who knows - 2016 could be the year of the Combo Generator (Universal Windows Platform App version).

Well, what a shame, this sounded like a great little tool! However, if anyone ever manages to resurrect it in one form or another, I could host it.

Paging Dub-Se7en or Steve - any chance of digging out the sample sets for this. I'm feeling moderately confident I could resurrect this as a Windows 10 app now. This could be the app that rejuvenates the Windows App Store / sells the Windows Phone.
