Band Creator and Audiobus Demo Review
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Band Creator

Today we’re going to have a look at an app called Band Creator by Wojciech Janiszewski. Band Creator is a simple drum and bass accompaniment app for iOS. You can play live into it using a microphone or an instrument on the input slot in Audiobus. I chose to put Audiobus to the test. I’m using an app called Real Guitar as an input device and it’s going to Band Creator as in the output slot.

It took Band Creator a few tries to get the rhythmic timing right. I found using an external metronome helped but still even with the metronome and simple spot on playing it had a tough time. It could be something to do with Real Guitar who knows. Perhaps I’ll do another demo using the microphone input and an acoustic guitar. I chose Audiobus this time because this is a new feature for the app and there wasn’t anything online demoing it. We did finally get it right though as you see in this demo. It would be nice to have a metronome built into Band Creator. I had to use an external one. The tempo it guessed was a little slow but it was close enough. Also there is no stop and start from the beginning button just play and pause and you can’t edit the chords or timing once recorded. The sounds are really basic. Would be nice to have access to higher quality realistic sounds.

Borderlands Granular V2 For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Borderlands Granular V2

Borderlands Granular is a new musical instrument for the iPad. Touch, transform, and explore sound with this new interface for granular synthesis, a technique that involves the superposition of small fragments of sound, or “grains”, to create complex, evolving timbres and textures.

What’s New in Version 2.0
New Features:
—————–
Audiobus Sender, Filter, and Receiver support
AudioShare import and export
Real time audio input recording and granulation
Gesture recording and looping for cloud parameters and positions
Save and load “scenes” – presets of clouds, sounds, and automation
Resonant filters for each grain cloud with per grain randomization
…and much more.

Borderlands emphasizes gestural interaction over knobs and sliders. Create, drag, and throw pulsing clouds of grains over a landscape of audio files, or use the built-in accelerometer to sculpt sound with gravity.

Borderlands comes ready to play with default sample content included, but you can also load and export your own sounds via Audiobus, Audioshare, and real time input from the mic or external audio interfaces. Re-sample recordings made within the app on-the-fly for layers-upon-layers of granulation.

You can also improvise alongside the app – touches and parameters may be recorded, looped, stored, and duplicated. Entire configurations of clouds, sounds, and automation can be saved into presets, or “scenes,” that may be recalled at a later time, allowing Borderlands to seamlessly transition between the studio and the stage.
