Andrew Huang Flip Sampler

Here’s a quick session with the Flip sampler app by Andrew Huang , just sampling some gear and arranging a beat. There’s no talking in this one folks.

Skip to the beat sequencing at 3:30 mins

Flip was designed for a fast and intuitive workflow. As soon as you record a sound it’s available to be played on drum pads as well as being mapped across a keyboard. Sounds can be subtly shaped or entirely transformed using the built-in effects and easy-to-use editing tools.

You can record a quantized or unquantized performance on the pads or keyboard. There is also a full piano roll where you can enter and edit notes and velocities.

Record knob movements or draw automation by hand to bring even more life to your sounds. Every automation lane can also have its own independent length, for polymetric and generative music possibilities.

Create up to 16 different sections for your song and drag and drop them into any order to create your arrangement.

Mixing and mastering tools allow you to finish a full track without ever leaving your phone. You can export your full track, or hit the tape icon and record the live output of the app while you tweak anything on the fly. Both options allow you to capture individual track stems as well!

A performance page lets you trigger your patterns live while controlling a global filter, assignable pitch bends and reverb sends, and a random fill generator.

Artist packs are available in-app at $3.99 or less, which include original sounds and projects from Andrew Huang, Bad Snacks, Rachel K Collier, Cuckoo, Chuck Sutton, Pusher, and more on the way all the time.

Ninja Tune announced their highly anticipated follow up to the Jamm app and it’s wicked!

Designed exclusively for iPad, Jamm Pro transforms Ninja Jamm into a comprehensive music-making tool, allowing users to upload their own samples and recordings. It also offers multitrack recording, MIDI Learn, extensive modular synth-like patching and modulation functions, as well as a range of other unique features really unlike any software or instrument currently on the market.

Developed as an instrument for playing live with sound, it also features multi-touch control and a Jamm clip matrix that allows users to instantly switch from one sample to the next, with everything remaining in time.

To mark the release, music-makers are invited to submit their best one-take video creating a track on Jamm Pro. The winner will be awarded £1000.

Jamm Pro is the anticipated evolution of Ninja Jamm, the original touch controlled beat app. Easy to use but deep, Jamm Pro includes Ninja Jamm users most requested feature: the ability to load your own samples. As well as immense performance power, it’s packed with pro features and new ideas e.g. its modular synth-like patching capabilities.

Jamm is a unique instrument. Loaded with free content and killer presets, you’ll be amazing yourself with the music you create from the moment you press Play.

KEY FEATURES

-Sub-bass module: Automatically generate super heavy bass kicks and basslines from drum samples — a feature dril fans will adore.
-Loopstation/Resampling functions: Use Jamm Pro as a Loopstation — perfect for vocalists to loop and layer vocals as well as beatboxing via instant recording.
-MIDI input: MIDI Learn allows easy connection of MIDI hardware to trigger and control Jamm Pro.
-Slice sequencer: Unique and highly interactive feature allowing users to simply draw on the screen to restructure any sample.
-Smart pitch bends: Change the pitch of any or all of the channels in real-time to inspire musically apt progressions.
-Scratch: Experiment with the iconic hiphop technique by applying the effect to any sample.

*Please note Jamm Pro is a very powerful app and will perform best on newer iPads. The iPad Pro is the ideal device for the best experience with Jamm Pro.

THE STORY

For Ninja Tune co-founders Coldcut, known for their innovations in DJing, Remixing, Production and Live Performance, Jamm Pro has been 25 years in the making. Coldcut have been honing it in their live show and recently creating music with it.

Designed by Coldcut’s Matt Black with the aim of creating their ultimate electronic music instrument. As users experiment and develop ideas, they can save them as their own patches, which can be used to quickly build up stages of a song, structure a live performance, or used as a sketchpad.

The app features exceptional and extensive modulation and patching capabilities, the likes of which have never been seen in a sample app before. Equipped with four main channels, each with nine sequencers — six modulation sequencers, a slice sequencer, a pitch/reverse/drill sequencer and a gate sequencer — and up to 64 patches per set, Jamm Pro allows for a possible 2,304 sequencers per Sound Set in the app.

As well as production, Jamm Pro has been designed as an instrument for playing live sound, drawing on hiphop DJing and timing. With expressive touch control, the app facilitates direct engagement of hand-eye-ear coordination through ‘tip control’. This innovative feature tracks small finger movements that can be used to sensitively control various effects.

And yes Ableton Link is included!

Vesuvius Sampler App

Vesuvius Sampler is a 10-part groovebox for the iPad that emulates the Korg volca sample from the Korg Volca series. Developed by Finegear using Korg’s open source SYRO SDK, Vesuvius is designed to help users select, prepare, sequence and upload their samples and pattern sets for their Korg volca sample.

As an emulation of the Volca Sample, it fully reproduces the features and interface of the original hardware unit. It brings to the iPad environment the intuitive sequencer and sampler and the same array of sample manipulations enhanced with an analog isolator and an assignable reverb effect.

More than just an emulation, Vesuvius also features sample importing, MIDI sync, MIDI mapping (and learning) as well as audio session recording in order to make it as usable as possible.

There is also a sample edit view which features browsing and import options (internal library, iTunes shared folder) as well as direct sample editing, further enabling you to load and edit any of your samples wherever they are!

To load samples and patterns on Volca hardware units, Vesuvius integrates Korg’s SYRO SDK and offers a complete solution that streamlines your workflow.

You can use Vesuvius as a standalone groovebox or just to prepare your sample sets and patterns for your Volca Sample. It is also a great app to discover the world of sampling and sample mangling.

Patterning 2 Update
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

New in Patterning 2.1.2 :
The polyphony parameter determines how many instances of an instrument can be playing at the same time. The options are MONO and POLY. When set to MONO, only one voice can play a time per track. This can be used to cut short longer samples when they re-triggered. In POLY mode (default), up to 32 voices can be playing at the same time.

Patterning 2 is the next generation of the award winning circular drum machine. Create beats like never before in a fun, intuitive interface that is both easy to use and deep with features for the experienced producer.

Woodstepper Sampler Step Sequencer

Woodstepper Sampler Step Sequencer

The WoodStepper is a sequencer having both audio and midi out.
It consists of 4 independent 8-steps sequencers which can be linked to a 16, 24 or 32 steps sequencer.
Each step can send 4 midi messages (note on, CC, …) to 2 midi channels.
The audio part for each sequencer has a pitch (down) shifter, (Moog lowpass) filter with ASR envelope, saturator, amplitude ASR envelope and delay line which can all be set independently per step.
The audio sources can be the track audio, sampled audio or the built-in VCO.
The app can be used stand-alone (device audio input and output) or as a plugin in a DAW.
In this case it has to be inserted in an audio track and not in an instrument track as WoodStepper is still an audio effects plugin with additional midi input and output.

Woodstepper Sampler Step Sequencer

The manual can be downloaded from : http://www.woodmansimmaculatemaplesyrupstudio.be/woodstepper/WoodStepperHelp.pdf– IOS plugin type : AUv3, IAA and stand-alone app.
