Elastic-Drums-Icon

Elastic Drums drum synth app now has a sampler! The sample feature is an in app purchase and will cost you $4.99.

Elastic Drums is a music app showcasing an interactive drum kit, that enables to create a huge range of rhythmic grids, ranging from classical analog drumkits up to experimental soundscapes. It contains six channels of high quality synthesized drum sounds, a step sequencer and 4 effect channels. All important control parameters are automatable. The result: Elastic drum composition with a unique character!

What’s New in Version 1.9
– New SAMPLER engine, with sample pitch, reverse, envelope, and a genuine looper function !!!
– Sample import via iTunes, eMail or AudioShare after purchasing the “sample import” option
– Record your microphone input after purchasing the “sample import” option
– Velocity/Automate edit view on iPad, via longtap velocity/automat button
– Copy instr + seq in Instr option sub screen
– Fixed badly working Midi Sync out start/stop behavior
– DoubleTap on instr parameters will set knob to default
– Mute/solo labels on instr. buttons
– Selecting + longtap on an instruments preset or user sample will open a delete overlay
– Warning, if you really want to change to another preset, if you made edits to the current one
– Updated to newest libPD version 0.10
– Version info in info overlay screen

Elastic Drums With Sampler Feature
(click to see sample feature up close)

Features:
– 6 synth channels with 12 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone)
– 12 parameters for each synth engine
– automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
– 4 send effect channels with 2×13 mono effects and 2×11 stereo effects
– automation for all of the 8 possible effect parameters via xy pad
– master effects (stutter, delay, compressor …)
– 16 step sequencer for the 6 channels, each with it’s own tempo multiplier & length
– record audio and export to Soundcloud or Audioshare
– email audio recordings and presets
– Audiobus, Audiobus Remote, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Link support
– Midi learn/Midi implementation of the most important parameters

Because all sounds get generated in realtime, the app is cpu heavy! iPhones 5 and greater can handle it with no problem, on iPhone 4s effects 3 and 4 get switched off by the engine automatically to save some cpu power. iPhone 4 and iPad1 are NOT recommended!

Elastic Drums is published by MoMinstruments, the instruments app label of Mouse on Mars and friends.

fluXpad Sample Sequencer For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

fluxpad

fluXpad is the first sample sequencer that fully functions by simply drawing the sounds. In fluXpad it’s super simple to record your own sounds, to create different pattern and to jam with them. fluXpad is a sample based groovebox/workstation with a highly original sequencer, where you “draw“ your music, which leads to completely different results, when compared to a traditional sequencer. The y-axis of your canvas controls pitch, while the x-axis controls the sustain of your notes. Sounds familiar, but drawing on a canvas without any grid is a totally new experience. Of course it is possible to quantize your notes, or you can limit your note range to major or minor scales.

fluXpad has been developed by Mouse on Mars and Jan Trützschler

fluxpad-screen

Features:
– 6 melody sequencers where you paint your melodies based on a sample of your choice
– 1 percussion/drum sequencer where you paint/tap your groove made of 7 samples of your choice
– record mode: either paint your sequence (on the top) or tap your notes (at the bottom)
– each sound has it’s own sampler settings with unique envelope, loop and start settings
– quantize / unquantize functions for each sequencer or the whole pattern
– 7 patterns to jam with, for each preset
– ability to record your own samples with the build in microphone
– import samples via iTunes or AudioShare
– huge sample library with high quality sounds/kits made by Mouse on Mars and others
– lots of demo projects made by Mouse and Mars and others
– ability buy new projects/sounds via In-App-Purchase
– ability to export/backup your projects (including sounds)
– Audiobus supported
– IAA sync supported
– Ableton Link supported
– ability to sync via midi to other apps, hardware

Strom Sampler and Elektron RYTM Editor
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Strom

Strom is a stand-alone sampler and sequencer as well as a powerful sound editor for Elektron RYTM. Record up to 10 seconds of audio, slice and sequence it, resample, create something entirely new.

The super responsive interface lets you sequence your source material in unique ways. You can always resample what you play, allowing you to quickly lift your audio into glitch heaven. You can edit slices while you are playing them – this lets you come up with really interesting grooves.

STROM’s sampler integrates nicely with other apps:
Copy audio from any app, using AudioShare and AudioCopy/Paste. Mangle them with STROM’s slice engine. Share your sliced samples with your friends! Copy them back to any other app for further processing.

STROM’s full power is unleashed if you connect your Elektron Analog Rytm drum computer to your iPad (and buy the Rytm In-App Purchase Upgrade):

For one, you can easily transfer samples to your Rytm using MIDI Sample Dump Standard. STROM can also send all slices as separate files. For example, load a vocal phrase, quickly slice it up, and send the individual “ooohs” and “aaahs” as one-shots. Slices are automatically numbered.

But the real juice is in STROM’s Rytm performance interface:

Designed to excel in the studio as well as on stage, STROM extends and augments your Analog Rytm.

Using the CTL-AL function, inspired by the legendary Machinedrum, you can tweak sounds on multiple tracks at once. For example, sweep the filter on all (or some) tracks. Or change the sample slot for all tracks (or less crazy, limit it to a few tracks of your choice). All sound and trig parameters, as well as track levels, are available to be tweaked with CTL-AL.

CTL-AL has UNDO, so you can instantly return to your previous drum kit settings.
You can also use CTL-AL to create parameter lock automation in your current pattern!

Intelligent Kit Randomizer:
It lets you squeeze the wildest sounds out of the Rytm. The Randomizer gives you detailed control over which tracks and parameters should be affected, and by how much. It isn’t really “random”, but uses your current Kit as the basis. You have intuitive and detailed control over whether to just shift the sound a little, or mangle everything completely insanely.

Then there’s the Pattern Generator:
It’s main deal is an intuitive interface for quickly creating rhythmic patterns.
Rhythms are programmed into the Rytm’s sequencer instantly.
Leveraging the musical Euclidean algorithm, it generates cyclic patterns that are not random, but follow a logic which is perceived by most humans as actual groove. You have quick and detailed control over what exactly it should generate.
For example, it couldn’t be easier to pop up an interesting closed/open hihat groove.
Or a kick / snare / tom-tom workout. Or a hand-clap break, just at the end of your loop.

In addition, there are special shift rotation tools which are super effective for creating syncopations and breaks.

There is no quicker, better and insaner way for live beat generation than the Rytm combined with STROM’s Pattern Generator, period.

Finally, the Kit and Pattern Pasteboard:
This gives you multiple copy & paste slots for Kits and Patterns. You can quickly capture the current rhythm or sound inside one of STROM’s four pasteboard slots, tweak everything wildly, and instantly pop the original data back to your drum machine. Incredibly powerful for playing out live.

With STROM, your Analog Rytm becomes supercharged.

(Rytm Upgrade is an In-App-Purchase. Elektron Analog Rytm is a hardware instrument which must be purchased separately. USB-Lightning Camera adapter is required for the MIDI connection)

Strom is available for $4.99
