THE STORY

For Ninja Tune co-founders Coldcut, known for their innovations in DJing, Remixing, Production and Live Performance, Jamm Pro has been 25 years in the making. Coldcut have been honing it in their live show and recently creating music with it.

Designed by Coldcut’s Matt Black with the aim of creating their ultimate electronic music instrument. As users experiment and develop ideas, they can save them as their own patches, which can be used to quickly build up stages of a song, structure a live performance, or used as a sketchpad.

The app features exceptional and extensive modulation and patching capabilities, the likes of which have never been seen in a sample app before. Equipped with four main channels, each with nine sequencers — six modulation sequencers, a slice sequencer, a pitch/reverse/drill sequencer and a gate sequencer — and up to 64 patches per set, Jamm Pro allows for a possible 2,304 sequencers per Sound Set in the app.

As well as production, Jamm Pro has been designed as an instrument for playing live sound, drawing on hiphop DJing and timing. With expressive touch control, the app facilitates direct engagement of hand-eye-ear coordination through ‘tip control’. This innovative feature tracks small finger movements that can be used to sensitively control various effects.

And yes Ableton Link is included!

Woodstepper Demo Video
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Hey friends! I just moved to a new studio space so please forgive me for the video quality as I haven’t had a chance to test the waters and get the lighting dialed in yet. This is the first video I shot in the new space and now I know what tweaks are needed. With that said here is a quick start guide for Woodstepper. I just wanted to get you started using it as a DSP and sampler within AUM. It is a very deep app so please understand that I am considering a second video , part 2 if you will, with more in depth explanations of the MIDI and Oscillator features. I hope this gives you a general idea as to what this awesome app can do!

Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Casio SK-5 Inspired App

SK-51 is an all-in-one keyboard inspired by the Casio SK-1 (and his brother the SK-5), a 8-bit lo-fi keyboard from the 80’s, with sampling features and onboard drum machine.
Called the poor man’s sampler at the time, this keyboard was a real instrument and has been used by many major artists such as Fatboy Slim, Portishead, Autechre and Nine Inch Nails.

As some of us at Fingerlab compose their first songs with it when they were kids in the eighties, we wanted to bring back to you this particular feeling from the past, so we created the SK-51.

We recorded all the instruments and drums notes, one by one with a professional audio quality (16bit/44KHz), we recreated the sampling features, and we transcribed all the demo drums patterns.
We also added the sounds from the Casio VL-Tone, a keyboard older than the SK-1 but nevertheless famous.

With its nice and true to life interface, many instruments (Trumpet, Flute, Piano, Vibraphone, …), 4 sampling slot and many drums patterns and sounds, the SK-51 is versatile and fun music tools.
Record your voice, start the drum box, play a chord and you got it!

Free version features:
– 3 instruments (Flute I, Piano I, Trumpet)
– 7 drums kit
– 4 sampling slot
– 3 demo drums patterns
– Full Mixer
– Midi support
– AudioBus & Inter-App Audio support
– Ableton Live support

IAP Full version features:
– 19 instruments (including Brass Ensemble, Vibraphone, Chorus and many more…)
– 7 drums kit
– 21 demo drums patterns
– 3 FX: Phaser, Delay & Reverb
– Live Recording
