Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Servando Barreiro is showcasing how he is using Elastic Drums together with a Korg NanoKontrol 2 Midi Controller. You can do this with the current version of Elastic Drums already, but the upcoming update will improve Midi Learning to do such setups also a lot. In his setup Servando basically connected the midi controller to some instrument parameters and to some master effects of the Jam page.

ED Update 2.1 should be out this week or next week latest.

Korg nanoKONTROL 2

Convenient, compact control surface, with easy setup for immediate use

In a body proportioned to fit perfectly in front of your laptop computer, the nanoKONTROL2 provides eight channels of the controllers you need to control your music software. The nanoKONTROL2 also features a dedicated transport control section. The buttons have been carefully selected to be useful with your software, ensuring simple and intuitive control. Many software titles – including major DAW programs – are supported, dramatically reducing the need to make complicated connection settings.

Complete control for your DAW or software synthesizer

A knob, fader, and three switches are provided for each of the eight channels, respectively assigned to pan, volume, and solo/mute/record. This arrangement is a real convenience when recording automation for multiple channels. There’s also a marker button, making it easy to assign marks at important points in your song for more efficient recording and song production.

Really excited to announce some new features for Pattering. The most exciting feature for me is the new Kit Cloud drum kit sharing feature.

What’s New in Version 1.3

Introducing Cloud Kits, Drum Kit Sharing for Patterning.

Download & share user-created samples with Cloud Kits. Browse a growing collection of free drum kits, searchable by artist, genre, and popularity. Listen to audio previews, upvote, and download kits directly in the app. Upload custom drum kits with your own artwork and share in Patterning and on Facebook or other social networks.

Also :

• Built-in Dropbox Support! You can now browse Dropbox in the app, allowing importing of multiple audio files without leaving Patterning. Available from the “IMPORT” menu of the Sample Library.
• When deleting a drum kit you can opt to delete samples at the same time.
• Exported audio and Ableton Live Sets now correctly bounce loops with auto-rotate enabled and alternate playback modes.
• Fixed logic for auto-rotation in alternate playback modes. You can revert to the old logic via the iOS Settings application.
• Fix issue which cause Audiobus Trigger buttons to not appear right away.
• Latest Audiobus SDK

As beautiful as it is powerful, Patterning is a deep and flexible drum machine unlike any you’ve encountered before. With its elegant circular interface, Patterning transforms the iPad into a seriously inspiring tool for making beats.

Create dynamic drum patterns with the swipe of a finger. Make evolving, poly-metric rhythms, four-on-the-floor dance party jams, or laid back R&B grooves. Use Patterning’s independent loop settings to explore untapped rhythmic possibilities. Automate parameters to create intricate & complex beats. Arrange patterns on the timeline to construct songs. Use the built-in effects–delay, reverb, distortion, and 3-band EQ–to add atmosphere, shimmer and noise. Connect to other apps with Audiobus, Inter-App Audio, and MIDI. Export your beats to perfect audio loops or directly to an Ableton Live Set.

Patterning comes loaded with classic drum machine samples as well as exclusive drum kits created and curated by contemporary producers and musicians. For the independent producer, it’s easy to create custom kits with your own samples.

Supports Ableton Link, MIDI Clock Sync, and Inter-App Audio Sync.

With an extensive and uncommon feature set, Patterning redefines what an iOS drum machine can be.

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.
