Fairlight Pro For iOS Devices

Fairlight For iPhone, iPod, and iPad

NOTE: Do not buy this if you have already bought the Fairlight App. Save money by using its in-App upgrade. If you are not sure you want the Pro features, buy the Fairlight App.

Experience music making ‘80s style with this awesome retro app, modelled on the legendary Fairlight Computer Musical Instrument.

Preloaded with 500+ CMI Series II sounds and 100+ Series III sounds, for the first time a byte-perfect re-issue of the classic CMI sounds of the 80s.


This app includes the famous ‘Page R’, which was the world’s first screen-based rhythm sequencer. Today every sampler, digital synthesiser, sequencer and audio workstation can trace its lineage back to this legendary machine.

Now you can make music using tools like those used by artists including Alan Parsons, Jean Michel Jarre, Trevor Horn, Thomas Dolby, Brian Eno, Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Stevie Wonder and so many more.

This app is a part midi player, part creative tool and part history lesson – developed by Fairlight staff who worked on the CMI in the ’80s.



FEATURES



- entire original Fairlight CMI IIX Sound library containing 564 voices*

– 100+ selected CMI III sounds 

- play the CMI voices from an external MIDI input (supports Core Midi, Line6 MidiMobilizer or Akai SynthStation), or use the on-screen keyboard*

– Sample your own voices from the microphone or line in, then use them in your compositions

– display voices graphically using the iconic Page D, and change your viewpoint by tilting your iPhone/iPad*

– authentic Fairlight CMI user interface experience, including floppy disk quirks*


- 8 track composition using ‘Page R’ pattern-based sequencer


- create instrument sets that store settings for all 8 channels, including the voices, pitch shifts, volumes, release times etc.

– import/export voices, compositions, MIDI and instruments and exchange with others.

* These features also available on the lower cost ‘Player’ version of the Fairlight App.



Fairlight is available for $49.99

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Magix Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
