• Fix deletion of MIDI recordings
• Other minor improvements and fixes

• Play and compose music with the swipe of your finger
• Generate music within defined scales and rhythms
• Improvise freely within a fully controlled musical framework
• Use the internal GM sound bank or your favorite MIDI synthesizer, or load your own sf2 soundfonts.
• Use Gestrument to control other iOS apps or external MIDI programs through a MIDI interface (CoreMidi enabled) or Network MIDI

• Allow mixing with other apps, for example play a track in the Music app and play along with it in Gestrument.

Improvise or compose within the scales and rhythms you choose. Use parameters like pulse density, scale morphing, rhythm randomness or pitch fluctuation to find new paths for your musical expression and creativity. Use the tutorials or define your own settings to fit the musical style you want to play and compose in. Play on up to eight instruments at once – all with different individual settings.

Gestrument works equally well for rhythmic music or sweeping soundscapes, for solo melodies or chord blocks, for long lines or short staccatos. It can help you make music in whichever genre you can imagine.

Gestrument works directly with its built in sounds and is therefore perfect for the amateur or beginner who wants to make music in an intuitive way. But it is first and foremost built for professional musicians and composers who can work with the settings to build advanced theoretical frameworks that they can later improvise or compose within.

Gregorio Zanon uPhase+ Live Performance Instrument

Gregorio Zanon uPhase+ iOS App

uPhase+ by composer Gregorio Zanon is a live performance instrument for iPad iPhone and iPod Touch. It has many features and shortcuts to enable complex improvisation with “spatialized” patterns. The app focuses on creating complex aural illusions out of very simple building blocks. uPhase is as much about exploring piano samples as it is about phasing: all audio is generated by modifying high quality piano samples.

In uPhase+, you make music by superposing small patterns of different lengths and/or meter to create complex textures out of simple building blocks. The interface provides a way of improvising with the patterns in real time.

A “Solo Mode” acts as the app’s lab, allowing the player to refine and save patterns before setting up a networked session.

uPhase+ is a door to Interactive Minimalism.

-12 video tutorials on uPhase.wordpress.com (highly recommended).

-Conceived from the ground up for iPad, fully multi-touch interface.

-Beautifully recorded piano samples, modifiable in real-time via an in-app sample editor (all samples by Bluemorfo).

-Network up to 7 devices via wifi to spatialize patterns.
When networking devices, only one of them needs to run uPhase+. The others can connect via the free companion app, uPhase Client.

Networking Mode:

-Example Session included to get you going.

-Crisp graphics take advantage of the New iPad’s retina display.

-Optimized to require very little bandwidth, even when networking 7 devices.

-Depending on demand and feasability, future updates will add requested features. WAV output is for the moment at the top of the list.

uPhase+ is NO LONGER AVAILABLE

SpaceWiz Instrument For iPad

Immerse yourself in the wonders of a visual/audio experience like no other! Take the role of viewer AND creator in a galaxy where you reign.

SpaceWiz by Wizdom Music allows you to interact with and control your environment at the highest level of complexity. With the manipulation of your own fingers on the playing surface, together with the technological wonders of the Chaos and Satellite generators, you fabricate particles, which then collide into planets.
You can even add the onboard real time synthesizer with its independent set of sounds and parameters to create your sonic masterpiece.

Regardless of your desires, this app will reward you with a mind-blowing creation. Sit back, and allow SpaceWiz to guide you on a uniquely woven audio-visual journey. Enjoy the ultimate sonic/visual wallpaper, or get busy and start throwing your own particles around the universe. Try rolling the dice for total randomization and see what happens! For creators who want to play a larger role in their SpaceWiz experience, you also have the opportunity to build your audio/visual world from the void!

What’s new in version 1.1:

AudioCopy

He was able to bring it completely to life.” Rudess and Miller worked together to create every unique sound and image. There are over 250 on-board instruments, as well as forty-five presets and access to control external midi instruments.

Top sound designer Richard Devine attests: ” I love SpaceWiz. It’s totally out of this world. I haven’t seen/heard anything like it before!”
