Midi Designer Pro 2 Update

midi designer customized midi controller app for iPad and iPhone

MIDI Designer Pro 2 version 2.96 is a huge step forward for our most advanced users. We’re introducing the Stream Byter Plugin by Audeonic. The Plugin provides MIDI manipulation in two places: before MIDI Designer processes the MIDI, and before the MIDI produced by MIDI Designer gets sent to a Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Virtual or Hardware target via CoreMIDI.

Stream Byter was initially released in May ’13 as a way to extend MidiBridge 1.5 ‘out in the field’ for customers and has been continuously improved since then. The Stream Byter in Midi Designer is the ‘Stream Byter II’ version that exists in Audeonic’s MidiFire app (iOS/macOS).

What does Stream Byter do? It allows you to make custom MIDI processing modules that you design yourself using a concise programming language made up of rules. There are simple rules for matching and transforming MIDI events and more complex rules for writing modules that behave conditionally, set/examine variables, perform math/timing operations, and of course, generate MIDI messages.

Here is a very simple case: you are playing a keyboard and you decide that you want to turn a single knob (“reverb,” for instance). The higher (to the right) you go on the keyboard, the louder the reverb gets.

That’s a single line match/transform Stream Byter Input rule:

9X = BX 5B X2

The above rule can be summarized as follows: For every note event received, set the value of the ‘reverb’ controller number (on same channel as note) to the MIDI note number of the note.

Rules can be joined. Imagine you want to toggle the value of another knob from top to bottom every time you hit an A3 on the keyboard, but you don’t want the message to go out for 10 seconds? That’s another rule. Generally rules do one or more of these things, and often combine them:

* decompose and recompose longer MIDI messages
* filter MIDI messages
* transform MIDI messages
* produce more MIDI messages

The first case, decompose MIDI messages, will be useful for parsing incoming sysex dumps for hardware synths that produce parseable sysex dumps for patches.

Writing Stream Byter rules does require knowledge of the MIDI protocol and how to construct rules correctly. There is an introductory tutorial on the Audeonic site and the full Stream Byter manual is available there too. There is also a dedicated section to the Stream Byter on the Audeonic forum. Midi Designer customers are welcome to post questions or requirements there where the developer and other Stream Byter users will help out.

Stream Byter input and output rules are saved and shared with your layout. Any MIDI Designer Pro 2 user may open a layout with rules someone else has authored free of charge. There’s an in-app purchase to author or edit Stream Byter rules. This IAP will be available upon release of MIDI Designer Pro 2.96. It will be priced at $1.99 for the first three months, and then return to its normal price of $8.99. See midiDR.com/streambyter for instructions and information.

In addition to the Stream Byter Plugin, Version 2.96 provides Slow Reset to Default. When a supercontrol button is set to “Reset to Default,” it can now also snap the subcontrol to its value over time. This gives you a slow reset and a precursor of what’s to come with presets.

Senode Update Adds New Features
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , ,

SENODE – GRAPHICAL STEP SEQUENCER – SENODE is a new music composition app for iPad. It extends the concept of linear step sequencers to a graph with unlimited directions and instruments. The simple “finite state machine” model allows you to create complex polyphonic sequences and play them in real-time!

1.0.3 Sep 22, 2018

– new emitter settings panel
– added MIDI bindings for emitter actions
– added generic MIDI CC bindings for synth and clock control
– added support for Bluetooth LE MIDI devices
– improved MIDI device selection
– performance and stability improvement

CREATE COMPLEX SEQUENCES WITH RANDOMIZATION

The core of Senode is a graph of Nodes connected by Edges. You decide if it behaves like a simple vending machine or a complex pinball game. Each Node triggers a sound when activated, while Edges determine the direction of travel. Instruments are controlled by Emitters which send their Tokens onto the graph. That means, you can compose a generative music piece for a whole orchestra using the graph notation and a couple of Emitters! It gets more interesting if you add random directions or emit multiple Tokens at different time positions.

GRAPHICAL MULTI-TOUCH INTERFACE

You can compose and perform your music live using the intuitive multi-touch interface. The on-screen keyboard helps you to visualize and edit notes assigned to the currently selected Node. Drag and connect Nodes with multiple fingers or use the lasso tool. Activate a sequence by sending Tokens onto the graph. Use your fingers to step through sequences manually or tap the master clock. All synth parameters are accessible from the main panel with multi-touch as well.

INTEGRATED SYNTHESIZER

Each Emitter contains a simple but powerful subtractive synthesizer with main OSC (sine, saw, square), sub OSC (sine), 1-pole lowpass filter, stereo reverb and ADSR envelope. Try the demo patches to get inspired!

MIDI CONTROL

Use a drum kit, wearable sensors or any other MIDI device to control the steps of Senode. Enjoy the unique experience of being your own master clock!

CONTROL MUSIC APPS AND EXTERNAL DEVICES

Senode is the perfect sequencer for all MIDI-capable apps. If you connect a MIDI interface, you can even control your hardware synths with the app.

EASY COMPOSITION WITH MIDI INPUT AND STEP RECORDING

Use the step record function to create new nodes on the fly, either from single notes or with chord detection. For advanced compositions, we recommend to connect a MIDI keyboard via lightning adapter and capture your song ideas as you play.

REALTIME CONTROL

Senode is made for live music performance. There are no default “beats” or “bars” and all actions are performed in real time. However, Tokens can be quantized to a master clock (16th resolution) and support catch-up, which means you can hit all functions like a drummer “on the spot” and stay in sync, even if you’re too early or a little late. By the way, the really cool stuff will happen if you break free from 4/4 bar schemes, start your sequences on off-beat timings or create crazy polyrhythmic cycles…

KEY FEATURES

– innovative non-linear graphical sequencer with draggable multi-touch interface
– integrated polyphonic synthesizer with sine wave, square, saw and noise oscillators, ADSR, filter, reverb
– unlimited number of steps and directions: cycles, randomized, one-shot
– real-time sequencer control with master clock and catch-up quantization
– full MIDI binding support for all sequencer operations like step, emit, tick, trigger or clear
– support for single notes or chords with velocity, legato or fixed-length notes
– chord detection, hold and replace modes
– transpose and clock divide functions
– polyphonic traversal with unlimited number of tokens and different instruments on the same graph
– quickly record nodes or chords via on-screen keybard or MIDI input
– control other music apps or external gear via MIDI
– comes with tutorial and example patches that you can instantly play
