Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Beat Mirror uses your device’s built-in microphone to detect your tempo *while you play*. Set a target tempo with the special tap-for-tempo feature and then start playing your instrument! A real-time graph of your tempo will appear right away, guiding you towards your best playing yet. Perfect for drummers looking to build their internal rhythm.

– Real-time, scrollable graph. Current tempo and tempo history are displayed real-time.
– Easy-to-read interface. Optimized for various light environments, such as stages and practice spaces.

UPDATE KRFT Modular Groovebox
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

KRFT is a modular instrument for expressive music production that we built to challenge the two decade old paradigm of the multi-track DAW. Designed from the ground up with a focus on live experimentation and expressive interactions, KRFT will inspire you to make music that would normally be out of reach. Rather than being confined to a fixed interface KRFT lets you create a surface that suits your musical needs whether you’re building an experimental groove box or composing an entire track. Use it standalone with its powerful internal audio engine or with your studio & MIDI enabled gear, such as Ableton Live or Logic Pro X.

What’s New in Version 1.6.0
** Transform Cells **
– An amazing new way to explore musical ideas, the Transform Cell takes a Timeline and transforms its notes in real time.
– The transforms available are Note Repeat, Arpeggiate, Rhythmize, Harmonize, Beat Repeat, Quantize, Reverse, Invert, Rotate, Random Key & Random Time
– Apply the same transform to multiple timelines and combine multiple transform cells for wild results!

** Sync: Step **
– Setting a timelines sync to “step” will make a timeline start from the next note in its sequence.
– Use this with the hold interaction to step through a melody or drum beat with every tap.

** Cell => Explode **
– The new explode function allows you to split an existing timeline into multiple cells.
– You can split a timeline either using a slice length or per key.
– Use this function to split out a drum kit into its individual parts or to easily create a keyboard.

** Matrix 2.0 **
– Now you can multi-select notes. Just long hold on the matrix and then drag over notes to select them.
– Selections can be moved, deleted, resized, copied & pasted – even into other loops.
– You can also apply transforms to these selections, such as invert, reverse, humanize and more!
– Added an undo button!

** Save user presets **
– Now you can save your user presets and use them across your projects.

** Minor Improvements **
– Added 4 new scales => Major Blues, Minor Blues, Whole Tone, Klezmer
– Added INIT patch for bass and lead synths
– Added noise param on synth engine
– Improved menu speeds
– UI Improvements
– Bug Fixes 🙂

Sugar Bytes Unique Synth For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Unique was made for fun and vibes: Analogue sound, intense modulation and a killer set of features, delivering an amazing sonic spectrum that’s full of character: Classy sounds, powerful, warm… sometimes gritty.

Each of the 2 oscillators offers a selection of 5 waveforms: sawtooth and pulse waves are here, along with noise, triple saw and triple FM waves. There’s also an additional sub-oscillator strapped into the master section for added oomph.

The internal controllers will bring in the dynamics: an LFO and an envelope, there’s a recordable XY field & a sequencer. Use these to modulate any knob – a simple long tap will do.

The sound springs to life when it hits the filter section. Needless to say, analogue high-pass, low-pass and band-pass varieties are in place, along with a comb filter.

Standards aside, the actual intention behind this project, the Vowel Filter, also became its outstanding feature: string together two or four vowel formants and play them back in a multitude of ways.

Once you’ve built your sound, there’s tons of sound polish in two chained multi-effect units.

Features:

• Sawtooth, Triple Saw, Pulse, Triple FM, Noise with tonal Filter, Sub Sine
• 5 Filters with 5 Modulators each
• Duophone Arpeggiator
• Vowel Filter
• Two Effect Sections
• Ableton Link Kit & AudioBus
• MIDI Learn & Host Automation
• 300 groovy presets by various artists

Patterning Cloud Kits Coming Soon

Patterning Icon

Folks know I love Patterning as most people do. It’s such a wicked drum sequencing app. I’m currently beta testing a new feature that allows users to share their drum kits and patterns via the cloud. I’ve shared my Tempest Industrial kit which is a set I made on a Dave Smith Instruments Tempest drum machine. The following is a video demonstration for my Industrial kit. I made this video a while back before the cloud kit feature was added.
