Master instrument controller

KeyStage is a master controller app designed mainly for keyboard players. With KeyStage, you can simultaneously control any number of hardware and software instruments using any number of MIDI controllers in an organized way.

Each project consists of sections (which corresponds to sections of a song). In each section you can change sounds and sound parameters of connected instruments, create complex splits and layers of your keyboard(s), change the functionalities of sliders/knobs/pedals of your MIDI controllers by creating advanced MIDI mappings, view PDF and JPG files (e.g. sheet music) and lyrics, and much more.

1.2 Jan 18, 2019
• Instrument presets database with auto suggestions
• Setlist management
• Virtual MIDI ports
• Default track color and channels for each MIDI alias
• You can mute/unmute tracks by double tapping on them
• You can control master volume multiplier using custom translators and X/Y console
• Custom translators can now manipulate program change messages
• You can use program change messages to change sections and songs (in setlist mode)
• Portrait mode now shows the control console for parts, tracks, section and the song
• Master volume multipliers lower range is changed to 0
• Bug fixes involving detailed view, undo/redo operations and the solo button

The live console of KeyStage is optimized for live performances. For each section, you can view one of the five live units in the live console:

1. Info Unit, which show an overview of the section including the keyboard ranges, volumes and pitch translations of each instrument
2. XY Touch Surface, where you can assign control change or pitch bend parameters to x and y axis
3. Lyrics Unit, where you can show the lyrics for the section
4. Media Unit, where you can view PDF and JPG files
5. Piano Unit, which is a virtual MIDI piano with a pitch bend

• Connect any number of MIDI controller to any number of MIDI instruments by creating tracks.
• Assign any region of your keyboard(s) to any connected instrument.
• Change velocity curve and velocity limits, and create velocity splits and layers.
• Transpose notes and restrict notes to any key using pitch shifter.
• Send program change, bank select and control change messages to connected instruments.
• Create instrument presets to easily change sounds of instruments
by choosing patch names from patch lists. KeyStage can also import Cubase Patch Scripts to automatically create instrument presets for your MIDI instruments.
• KeyStage automatically detects new MIDI connections and recommends matching instrument presets from a database.
• Simulate auto-sustain on any connected instrument.
• Change or filter any MIDI signal using custom translators. Use “Relative Control” switch to smoothly change the parameters of your instruments without any jumps.
• Use XY control unit to send control change and pitch bend messages to any connected MIDI instrument.
• Create setlists, quick access all the songs in a setlist from a setlist bar, move to previous/next songs from live console or using external MIDI.
• Create virtual MIDI inputs/outputs for KeyStage.
• Use virtual MIDI piano controller to play connected instruments.
• View PDF and JPG files. Link any page or region of any file to any section.
• Backup and restore your songs and global properties to Dropbox.
• Map special actions (like changing octaves, switching sections, changing pages of a PDF file) to notes and controllers using custom translators.
• Use MPE routing to control any MIDI instrument using MPE controllers like Seaboard. Use custom translators to change the functionalities of each MPE dimension.
• KeyStage supports smooth transitions between sections. Pressed notes will continue to sound when you switch sections.

Aphelian iPad app

APHELIAN features a new kind of sequencer, based on a geometrical metaphor. The interface is composed of 4 independent instruments, distributed in the corners. Each instrument has a SHAPE that function as a TIMELINE.

The user can DRAW EVENTS in the TIMELINE to create melodies. The SHAPES are located over a NOTE MAP that defines the NOTE of each EVENT. The SHAPES can be easily transformed using gestures that take full advantage of the touch screen.

Any transformation in the SHAPE results in a predictable modification in the musical composition. APHELIAN offers an amazing balance between joyful exploration and accurate detail control, proposing an organic way to compose music.

Inspired by Johannes Kepler’s geometrical model of the solar system, where the planets play melodies as they orbit the sun assembling a cosmic symphony.

4 orbital sequencer engines.
1 Global Harmonic controller
4 Internal Synthesizers.
1 Internal Drum machine.

SUPPORTS: Inter App Audio, Ableton Link Sync, MIDI OUT per channel (Note on/off and Control Change), Audiobus and Audiobus State

New Synth EG WaveShaper
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

WaveShaper synthesizer for iOS

EG WaveSHAPER is the first synthesizer that lets you create your sound with a finger.

Draw the waveform on the screen or shape a builtin one, mix it with a classic analog oscillator and a sub oscillator and automate all the knobs with 2 drawable LFOs and 2 ENVs

‘Waveshaping is a synthesis-and-transformation technique that turns simple sounds into complex sounds’

2 wavetables can be designed and morphed to create unique and dynamic sounds under your finger, choosing the morph attack and release; complex spectra can be created waveshaping the oscillator and introducing non linear distortion, rich harmonics and a tube-vacuum behaviour.
The hybrid Waveshaping/Wavetable engine lets you combine a wavetable oscillator with a classic oscillator and a sub oscillator, to add additional sound layers and depth.

2 Lfo and 2 Envelopes with indipendent time can be assigned to virtually any of the synth parameters. They can also be graphically designed with the touch of your finger or you can choose among the builtin envelopes.

– Hybrid Wavetable/Waveshaping engine
– Draw your wavetable oscillator with your finger
– 100+ presets (Pad, Lead, Bass and Fx)
– 30+ builtin waveforms to use and modify
– 2 LFOs and 2 ENVs assignable to any parameter
– FX: Reverb, Delay and EG Crush
– Detune osc to create huge unison sounds
– FM and Noise with configurble FM Ratio and Noise eq
– VCF and Reso filters
– Complete presets management with export and share
– Core MIDI: MIDI in, MIDI CC, MIDI channel pressure control
– AU3 with full knobs parameters automation
– Universal for iPad & iPhone
