Gregorio Zanon uPhase+ Live Performance Instrument

Gregorio Zanon uPhase+ iOS App

uPhase+ by composer Gregorio Zanon is a live performance instrument for iPad iPhone and iPod Touch. It has many features and shortcuts to enable complex improvisation with “spatialized” patterns. The app focuses on creating complex aural illusions out of very simple building blocks. uPhase is as much about exploring piano samples as it is about phasing: all audio is generated by modifying high quality piano samples.

In uPhase+, you make music by superposing small patterns of different lengths and/or meter to create complex textures out of simple building blocks. The interface provides a way of improvising with the patterns in real time.

A “Solo Mode” acts as the app’s lab, allowing the player to refine and save patterns before setting up a networked session.

uPhase+ is a door to Interactive Minimalism.

-12 video tutorials on uPhase.wordpress.com (highly recommended).

-Conceived from the ground up for iPad, fully multi-touch interface.

-Beautifully recorded piano samples, modifiable in real-time via an in-app sample editor (all samples by Bluemorfo).

-Network up to 7 devices via wifi to spatialize patterns.
When networking devices, only one of them needs to run uPhase+. The others can connect via the free companion app, uPhase Client.

Networking Mode:

-Example Session included to get you going.

-Crisp graphics take advantage of the New iPad’s retina display.

-Optimized to require very little bandwidth, even when networking 7 devices.

-Depending on demand and feasability, future updates will add requested features. WAV output is for the moment at the top of the list.

uPhase+ is NO LONGER AVAILABLE

  • 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.
