Groove Rider GR-16 Adds Stereo Delay
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Groove Rider GR-16 is a professional step-sequenced groove box, inspired by professional hardware drum machines and rhythm boxes. It has a powerful Poison-202 based two oscillator synthesizer engine, plus a big variety of included PCM drum samples, insert/send/master effects, arpeggiator, automation recording, modulator, ADSR and filter block, and more! Built-in factory pattern library includes patterns in different music styles, which will inspire you (the list will be appended with the regular updates). Check out the patterns demo video:

What’s New
Version 1.3.3

In this version (1.3.3):
– added a stereo delay effect per part (also known as Haas effect), controlled from the Part Parameters menu. You can specify the delay time between left and right channels in milliseconds, or turn it off for the part (by default);
– added new utility function: Shift part one step left or right, located in the Utils menu;
– chain mode: now, if you switch chain mode to “on” during playback, you won’t have to restart the current pattern to make chain mode work;
– added 4 factory preset patterns (named “Acid-1988”);
– some of factory preset patterns were slightly modified to use new stereo delay effect, introduced in this update.

In previous version (1.3.2):
– “Save to New…” function during playback now immediately switches to the new saved pattern without having to wait for current pattern to end;
– “Export Pattern Audio” functions were renamed to “Render Pattern Audio” for clarity; and “Export Pattern” (.gr16 format) functions were renamed to “Share Pattern” accordingly;
– “Render Chain Audio” and “Render Chain Stems” functions added, allowing you to render a chain of patterns, starting from current pattern, into one big audio file (or stems archive) for export. Be sure to turn “Chain Mode: On” setting to enable and use these functions;
– a progress bar added when rendering audio, with the “Cancel” button, allowing you to cancel rendering in the middle of the process if needed;
– bug fixed: patterns with non-standard rhythm base (especially 16 Triplets) were playing back and chained incorrectly;
– several minor, but important bug fixes.

One remarkable feature of GR-16 is that all the controls are arranged on one screen, just like on a real groove box device! It lets you access almost all useful parameters from the one screen. Forget about numerous sub-windows and dialogs, which ruined your inspiration in another musical apps! Groove Rider is the fastest path from your imagination to reality!
