Frequently Asked Questions
Seeing as the tracks are randomly generated, you might wonder why there is a limit to the number of tracks at all. Allow me to geek out for a moment and explain a little more. The amount of different tracks is limited by the psuedo–random number generators that the app uses. They are called “psuedo–random” because they actually choose numbers from a fixed sequence of “random” numbers. This sequence of random numbers is so long, that for all intents and purposes, it is random. Each genre also has a set of rules that the random generators must follow in order to produce music that sounds like that genre, however, these rules are loose enough that it is easily possible for there to be enough unique combinations available to produce the large numbers of tracks mentioned above.
Of course, it is still possible that two of the 340 trillion–trillion–trillion tracks might be the same, but how will anyone ever know? If you find two that are the same, let me know… maybe there’ll be a reward in it!
No, once the app is installed on your device, it needs no external input to work. All audio is generated on the device itself.
You might now be wondering if this means you can pass off Algorythm Radio music as if it were your own, maybe even sell it as your own work? Well, you can! You absolutely can do that. But your peers and fans will laugh at you if they ever find out, and your musical integrity, not to mention your career, may never recover from it!
On a more serious note, there is no reason why you shouldn’t use Algorythm Radio for inspiration, we all need inspiration from somewhere, right? And people have been sampling other peoples works for decades, so sample away! Use this vast collection of music to do whatever you need it to do.
