BlokDust is an open source project that works like digital legos for notes and effect

To create music on your web browser isn’t an altogether new concept: it's already been covered by Google Music Lab and Incredibox. But if you want to make some sweet tunes matched to a captivating aesthetic, there's a new service called BlokDust. The open source project, which works like digital legos for sound, lets anyone piece together some power blocks with source and effect blocks to make curious vibes.

It’s worth it to note that unlike Logic or Ableton, however, you’ll need to sink some time and effort into making something catchy – otherwise it's just noise. The system itself is quite complex and enables tons of sounds through careful tweaking. To get started, check out the creator’s tutorials for a deep dive into your new favorite music platform.
