Midi Controller

Award-winning composer Jesper Nordin and leading iOS developer Jonatan Liljedahl (Kymatica) has completely re-invented their unique app from 2012 and taken the concept to the next level.

Gestrument Pro takes everything we loved about Gestrument and improves on its original functionality while introducing a host of new features such as multi-touch, recordable automations, advanced scale editing and our unique system of highly tweakable modular generators that define the pitches and rhythms.

With Gestrument Pro you can Play, Improvise and Compose music with deeper levels of personal expression than ever before.

Features:

• Up to 16 individual Instruments.
• Each Instrument can be controlled by any of up to 8 Cursors.
• Instruments can use internal high quality sounds or play other synthesizers or apps via MIDI.
• Modular swappable Generators for producing the rhythms and pitches per Instrument, each with their own set of tweakable parameters and settings.
• 8 performance sliders that each can control one or more parameters in the Instruments and their Generators.
• A highly flexible modulation system allows assigning Sliders and Cursor position/pressure to any parameter in the Instruments.
• Advanced microtonal Scale editor with several standard scales included.
• 8 Scale Slots for fast switching between scales and tonalities during performance.
• Sliders, Cursors and Scale Slots can be recorded into automated loops, or controlled via MIDI.
• Supports Inter-App Audio and Audiobus, including host sync for following the hosts transport and tempo.

Audio unit compressor with sidechain

Woodpressor is a high-end audio compressor. It is both a standalone app supporting IAA (Inter-App Audio) and an AUv3 audio unit plugin.
It has all the classic compressor controls like “Threshold”, “Attack”, “Release”, “Ratio”, etc
but also has some extra features not commonly found on other compressors.

Compressor audio unit with side chain filter

– Auto gain
– Tube distort
– Adaptive Threshold
– Non-linear Release
– Side chain filter (bandpass, highpass, lowpass or notch)
– Limiter

It also has it’s own side chain mechanism as currently no or very little AUv3 hosts implement a side chain.

Woodpressor can save/load user presets, especially useful in standalone mode (or for AUv3 hosts not having their own preset store)
User Presets are written to iCloud Drive which makes them automatically available (and synced, and backed-up) on all devices (and all host apps or DAW’s) running Woodpressor.

SonoGrid Complex Rhythm App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , ,

SonoGrid

Sonogrid helps you deeply explore music. You can use it like a drum machine, an advanced metronome, an ear trainer, compositional sketchpad, or just to have fun with sound and music.

No musical experience is necessary to enjoy the app, and that’s what makes it fun, but certain features might feed your creativity if you already make music. For musicians, there are new time signatures, polyrhythms, scales, and the possibility to combine any of them in new ways. For dancers, a highly-flexible accompaniment that never needs to stop. For teachers, a clear way to represent time and help students understand the space between beats. For improvisers, something fun to play along with and to take you to new spaces. For music nerds, plans cancelled.

Use the app’s powerful features for beat making, ear training, keeping time, performing, and creative exploration. Most importantly, have fun!

* * * FEATURES * * *

1. Part imagination, part puzzle.

The main concept is to put looping rhythms on the screen in a way that they all relate to each other. Transform rhythms visually by shifting, stretching, and snapping.

2. More than 2, 4, 8, 16.

The app is designed as a creative tool, with a screen that’s mostly a blank canvas for your ideas. It is a new way to explore the deep world of rhythm, and with virtually infinite possibilities you are not limited to even numbers.

3. Easy button or eighty-eight keys?

Notes are selected automatically by default so that you can start quickly, but if you need more control you can manually select one for each track from a full-size piano keyboard.

4. Plays nice with others.

The app comes with many built-in instruments but you can also send notes live to other apps if you want to have custom sounds. You can send MIDI out (maybe to a synthesizer app like Audulus, or a DAW on your computer like Ableton Live). You can also export your project to a standard MIDI file which can be played back on any device.

5. You already know how to use it.

The interface is similar to multi-track recording software so you can mute, solo, move, stretch, and manage tracks intuitively.

6. Tenori to the limit.

The familiar step sequencer has been transformed to be more flexible, but the idea of turning notes ‘on’ and ‘off’ is the same.

7. You got options.

The powerful transformations on each track are easy to access and understand. No mystery-meat navigation.

8. When does it line up?

The phase is automatically calculated so you know when the pattern will repeat.
