Rytmik Ultimate

Cinemax Games announces Rytmik Ultimate. Rytmik Ultimate is a logic progression from Rytmik Retrobits (originally for Nintendo DSi). This new version (for iPad, DSi, and PC) has taken music creation to one level higher thanks to new features. It allows you to share your songs with other users through the Rytmik Cloud. Rytmik can serve as a music player of songs uploaded on Rytmik Cloud with it and on top of that, users may exchange their songs and cooperate on their composing.

Another new feature, which is also the most desired one among fans, is exporting and saving music to a local storage. Once your work is complete, you can save it in WAV format.

That’s not all! Every instrument is now a wavetable synthesizer. With the advanced effect module you have more power to shape sounds with the ADSR envelope, vibrato, portamento, noise shaper or digital delay.

In addition to that the drawable waveform synth module allows a user to draw and modify their own wave and use it as a sample oscillator – with that you can use Rytmik Ultimate as a sonically unique chiptune synthesizer.

Rytmik Ultimate comes with a sound library of more than 750 instruments containing the libraries of the previous Rytmik series (Rytmik, Retrobits, Hiphop King and World Music) and adding a brand new set of samples ranging from deep dubstep kicks and basses to cutting synth leads and special effects.

Rytmik Ultimate with Rytmik Cloud will of course include more features and additions to the popular series to enrich your experience with playing with sounds and creating music on the go.

Key Features:

Share your songs via Rytmik Cloud
Export your music in the WAV format
More than 750 musical instruments
A drawable waveform synth module
Advanced effects like the ADSR Envelope, Digital Delay, Noise Shaper, Sample Offset and Loop Definition and more
Almost every effect parameter can be modulated via the step sequencer
Simple and Intuitive yet Powerful Interface

Tribal Electro Grooves With Different Drummer
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Different Drummer

Compose tribal electro grooves with little or no effort with the Different Drummer app by Techné Media.

Using patent pending Cyclophone Technology, Different Drummer taps into the primal source of all rhythm—waves. Different Drummer puts out multi-track music which is lifelike or primal at times and out of this world at others. It’s not a drum synthesizer but a music synthesizer that uses waves to play any sound in amazing ways that vary from electro to dubstep to tribal to classical.

This software was created with music in mind—but in the spirit of discovering what is next in music, not just finding a new way to do the same thing like so many music apps do so well. If you are a pioneer or care about where music is going, this app is for you.

What’s New in Version 4.0.0
• New Zenterface provides a new, simpler way to interact with Different Drummer—it’s cool (in-app purchase for full unlock)!
• Master tuning control
• Drum sets
• Two new wave styles: mirrored and clipped
• New Zoom control for Wave View
• New Settings and Mixer
• Custom color themes
• New template chooser
• Plays nicer when in background (music player is now entirely independent of interface)

Create dynamic drum parts, saving hours of tedious pattern and loop creation. Drums created with DD are pretty much assured to be copyright free and unique!

It only takes a few minutes before you realize how powerful the DD waves are. Adjust note, rest, tie, panning, beat and dynamics waves for the ultimate range of expression.

You will never exhaust the endless possibilities of Different Drummer and you are guaranteed to discover legit beats that no one has ever heard before.

No matter how many apps you have…not having Different Drummer is just sad. For the price of a few cups of coffee…to not possess this musical wonder is committing a groove crime.
