OPS Modular Adds Sampler
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Ops is a modular synthesiser designed to make it easy to create and explore sound interactively with a touch screen. Ops does away with patch cords, instead using a system of connected blocks with a clear signal flow.

The blocks, called ops, are joined together into structures by dragging and dropping them on screen. Structures can easily be copied and varied to build-up rich, interesting results.

There are ops to perform a wide range of functions, including interaction, signal generation, effects processing, control, audio input, sample playback and record, MIDI input, and pitch and rhythm manipulation.

What’s New in Version 1.1.1
– sample record and playback ops
– play and edit structures at the same time
– full undo/redo
– user interface improvements
– merge load
– Boolean and more maths ops

Songbirds relaxing music maker app
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Playful Music Creation from Pelican. Pelican 7 are developers of Lily [$1.99], which is another cross between an interactive musical game and a touchscreen musical instrument.

Create melodies and sequence notes with a very relaxing visual display. Unfortunately there is no support for Audiobus or IAA so getting audio from this app will take a bit of ingenuity. It does sound amazing so I hope to see some useful updates in the future.
