Drums By Asrodot Update Adds MIDI and Tempo Sync
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Drums by Asrodot iPad Drum App

Drums by Asrodot version 1.4 is here and it now supports MIDI and tempo sync’d delay! For MIDI support there are two kinds of implementation that are selectable :

note <-> sample :
Each midi note corresponds with a sample and vice versa. Keep in mind that a single drumsound in the app usually is a combination of up to 3 samples mixed together with different velocities. As a result tapping on the screen will result in up to 3 different midi note-on messages sent to the midi-out at once. If you trigger another midi drum instrument this way it would be possible to recreate the drumsample-mixing that is natural behavior to Drums by Asrodot.

note <-> screen :
The screen is divided into an 11×11 grid. Each element on this grid corresponds to a midi note. Likewise each midi note corresponds with a location on the screen. Tapping on the screen will result in only 1 midi note-on message send to midi-out. Playing from a midi keyboard it will be easier to trigger specific sample combinations. Keep in mind though that the 11×11 grid is a simplification of the actual playing possibilities of the screen.

The “note <-> screen” implementation would not make much sense on the Xilo drumkit. In “note <-> screen” mode the Xilo drumkit can be played from a midi keyboard where velocity triggers the various velocity layers. In “note <-> sample” mode each velocity layer has its own two octaves.

Ask a drummer or a percussionist what a wooden coffee table sounds like. He or she will reply that every inch of the table sounds differently. Some parts of the table will sound somewhat like a bass drum. Other parts of the table will sound more like a rimshot. Parts in-between will sound like a mixture of both.

A drummer or a percussionist placed behind a wooden coffee table will soon discover many different sounds the table has to offer and use it to create stunning rhythms. Much to the joy of the drummer/percussionist, and possibly to the annoyance of the other people sitting at the table.

The table metaphor has been used in the creation of Drums by Asrodot. Using the available space on the screen it has been made sure that every pixel sounds just a little bit different, which makes drumming on the iPad/iPhone come to life. Want to create drumrolls with subtle accents every third note? Now you can.

This does not mean that Drums by Asrodot sounds like a coffee-table. The app comes loaded with six drum kits tailored for various styles of music.

Patterning Icon

Patterning By Olympia Noise

Massive update for one of my all time favorite apps! In this update they added a ton of new features to improve your creative workflow — including audio export, new and improved sync options, a more useful timeline, MIDI mappings, as well as interface improvements that make Patterning even more fun and inspiring to work with. As always, let us know if you have any questions or run into any issues.

ON SALE FOR A LIMITED TIME! 50% OFF

Audio Export
Patterning now includes a highly configurable audio export function for getting your drum tracks out of Patterning and into the next stage of your process. It’s easy to turn your beats into perfect audio loops or entire songs in .WAV format. Bounce individual tracks or the main mix and save your files to AudioShare, iTunes File Sharing or using “Open in….” to save to Dropbox or other apps.

Patterning Audio Export

MIDI Mapping
Map your hardware MIDI controller to control mixer and sample settings, trigger pattern changes, and more. Assign CC’s, notes, or program changes to parameters using the MIDI learn function, and fine tune parameter ranges with the MIDI configuration menu. MIDI mappings can be imported from other songs to easily reuse your favorite mappings.

New & Improved Sync Options
A consolidated Sync menu makes your sync settings easier to configure. In addition to Ableton Link, Patterning now supports Inter-App Audio sync and a completely re-written MIDI Clock implementation. Inter-App Audio sync and transport controls are available when connected to the master Inter-App Audio port.

Patterning Sync

Inter-App Audio Track Output
Patterning now supports individual Inter-App Audio outputs for each track as well as the master output. Connect up tracks to Audiobus, AUM, or another Inter-App Audio host to apply effects to individual tracks.

MIDI Output Enhancements
In addition to notes, MIDI enabled tracks can now send automation data in the form of CC or pitch bend messages. Track layers are assigned to MIDI destinations according to the MIDI standard. MIDI Track settings can be imported from other songs for easy reuse.

A New Timeline
Patterning’s timeline has been updated, making the creation of songs a whole lot easier and more fun. You can now make multiple selections, and use “duplicate,” “duplicate insert,” and “duplicate at end” tools to quickly repeat sections of the timeline. In addition, each timeline block now has a “reset rotation” option to allow patterns to snap to their beginnings in the timeline. This is useful for rotating or odd meter patterns, as well as creating stutters or fills in the timeline.

Patterning Update

Sample Preview
Preview samples in the sample library! To enable, toggle the speaker icon in the top right of the sample library. Preview uses the current sample settings (pitch, pan, effect sends, etc) to help you tweak your sounds.

Custom Drum Kit Image
Import custom images from your photos library for your drum kits. Tap the drum kit image to select and edit a photo.

Other Improvements
Improved quality of pitch shift algorithm.
Adjustments to layout on iPad Pro.
Added Mute/Solo on “sample” tab.
Peak level metering throughout the app.
Stability improvements.
A cool new icon.

The Table Metaphor

Some parts of the table will sound somewhat like a bass drum. Other parts of the table will sound more like a rimshot. Parts in-between will sound like a mixture of both.

A drummer or a percussionist placed behind a wooden coffee table will soon discover many different sounds the table has to offer and use it to create stunning rhythms. Much to the joy of the drummer/percussionist, and possibly to the annoyance of the other people sitting at the table. The table metaphor has been used in the creation of Drums by Asrodot. Using the real estate of the iPad screen it has been made sure that every pixel sounds just a little bit different, which makes drumming on the iPad come to life. Want to create drumrolls with subtle accents every third note? Now you can.
