WerkBench Sampler Sequencer For iPad

WerkBench Sampler Sequencer For iPad

Werkbench arrives with a wicked new update! At the heart of WerkBench are two step sequencers that can sample sounds directly into rhythms and then warp those sounds with synthesizer type controls and high-quality audio effects.

What’s New in Version 3.1.0
**We added Ableton Link and Kymatica AudioShare support!**
-Ableton Link’s technology let’s you easily sync WerkBench with other apps and the rest of your studio. No computer or additional software required, It just works. It’s amazing. Thanks Ableton.
-AudioShare support allows easy transfer between WerkBench and the popular audio editing/managing app AudioShare by Kymatica. WerkBench can now open all types of audio files into the importer.

**We implemented a better ‘initialize’ option**
Previously, there was no way to start over completely from scratch. Now you can choose ‘New session’ via the folder button.

**We implemented a better AudioBus control panel**
-Brought back the play toggle.
-Added a record button. Now you can temporarily disarm recording while working on sounds in another app and then re-arm your steps without having to switch back to WerkBench. Saves you some clicks!

**We fixed some things!**
-Step editing knobs now default to sensible values and are easier to control.
-Some buttons were hard to tap.
-Got rid of a click that would happen in the envelope with long low sounds.
-Saved loops now recall their first and last step correctly.

WerkBench features:

–“Fancy Controls” (pitch, lowpass filters, highpass filters, envelopes, and more!)

–Edit the level, pitch, pan, low-pass filter, high-pass filter, envelope attack & decay, echo send, reverb send, and bit crusher effects independently for each of the 128 steps!

–All of these settings can be: performed and recorded in real-time, randomized, or programmed on the sequencer grids.

–Individual sequences can have arbitrary start and end points (they can even run backwards and be any length up to 16 steps)

–Chain sequences to build longer loops (1 – 128 steps!).

–Modeled tape echo for spacey effects with a sweet real-time visualizer, tempo sync, and free running modes.

–Reverb with fully sweep-able controls for decay, color (tone), and mix.

–Save and load loops or whole sessions of 8 patterns.

–Share loops between devices easily via airdrop, iTunes, e-mail, etc.

–Import wav files to chop up with our editor (the editor also works as a granular synthesizer!!)

–Export loops and recordings via Audio Copy, iTunes file sharing, and email.

–MIDI sync and MIDI note modes. Each of the 128 steps can be triggered on its own MIDI note.

–User-programable scales per side.

Poly Generative Sequencer For iPad

Back in July of 2013 I reviewed a cool generative app called Poly on my Youtube channel. Several years later this fun and cool app has an update and it’s an important one!

Poly is a unique generative sequencer that harnesses the power of poly-rhythms to create intricate and exciting patterns.

Different coloured nodes are added to a circular area. The closer a node is to middle, the faster it repeats. Each node has its own sample, FX settings and keyboard. There are five available colours and up to 12 nodes maximum.

Poly comes with over 40 preset sounds, including a selection of awesome 808 samples

Other features include:

– Audiobus integration
– Audio Copy and Paste
– AudioShare file sharing
– Virtual / Hardware MIDI
– Saving and Loading of Patterns
– Recording of performances
– Dropbox upload and download

It was designed to be super easy to use in a way that’s similar to the SH-101 sequencer, where you can just quickly enter a few keyboard notes and you’re ready to hit play and hear your sequence. At the same time, it also incorporates many ideas from other classic and modern sequencers, allowing you to set control values per step, mute and skip existing steps, switch between multiple patterns and parts, sync and link patterns in various ways, and modify your sequences.

midiSTEPs features:
64 step sequencer based on the classic SH-101 sequencer
Set note, chord or rest per step
Set accent and tie per step
Set CC, velocity, length parameters per step

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.
