AC Sabre MIDI Controller App For iPhone

AC Sabre is a revolutionary wireless MIDI instrument and motion controller for iPhone. It brings the dynamic richness and performance energy of traditional instruments to your digital music library, in a way that is not possible with the existing studio and stage tools.

AC Sabre reads your movements with the built in gyroscope and accelerometer and translates them into musical actions. It lets you pluck invisible strings in the air while controlling up to 7 additional parameters, intuitively with your movements, via MIDI CC messages.

PLEASE NOTE: AC Sabre contains no sounds of its own. You’ll need a computer with MIDI compatible music software (Ableton, Logic, Cubase, FLStudio, Reason, Garage Band, Massive, Kontakt, Sylenth…), or other apps which support MIDI input (Animoog, Nave).

What’s New in Version 1.1.0

Animoog, powered by the new Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE), is Moog Music’s first professional polyphonic synthesizer designed exclusively for the iPad. ASE allows you to move dynamically through an X/Y space of unique timbres to create a constantly evolving and expressive soundscape.

Animoog captures the vast sonic vocabulary of Moog synthesizers and applies it to the modern touch surface paradigm, enabling you to quickly sculpt incredibly fluid and dynamic sounds that live, breathe, and evolve as you play them.

Visually captivating and sonically immersive, Animoog brings iPad based music production to the next level. Whether you are new to synthesis or a professional, Animoog’s unique user interface gives you the power to easily create a visually vibrant and sonically rich universe. It is the ultimate tool for total creative expression!

Animoog’s diverse library of timbres is derived from analog waveforms captured from classic Moog oscillators, both vintage and modern, and run through a boutique’s worth of high-end outboard and analog signal processors. These include modular synth panels, Moogerfooger pedals and more.

Animoog is the newest innovation in creative tools from Moog Music, the legendary electronic musical instrument company founded by Bob Moog in Asheville, NC.

** NOTE: IF NO SOUND from iPad speaker but headphone is working, this is an iPad settings issue. Go to the Settings app, General tab, set “Use Side Switch to: Mute” then turn switch on side of iPad on (Mute) and off again (Unmute). Then set “Use Side Switch to: Lock Rotation” to prevent problem in future. **

Key Features:

• Anisotropic Synth Engine (ASE) – An exciting new Moog technology that allows the user to move dynamically through an X/Y space of unique timbres to create an expressive and constantly evolving soundscape.

• Timbre page – Assemble unique sounds in the X/Y space from timbres of a wide variety of vintage and modern Moog synthesizers and pedals. Note: this is NOT simple sample playback.

• Polyphonic Modulation – Simply slide your fingers to control multiple modulation parameters in Animoog right from the keys.

• Polyphonic Pitch Shifting – Easily manipulate the exact pitch of each note in a chord by rotating or sliding your fingers.

• Delay Module – A classic analog style ping pong delay.

• Thick Module – From bit crushing to unison voice detuning and drive, this module adds depth, edge and character to Animoog’s already massive sound palette.

• Moog Filter – The classic four-pole Moog ladder filter with High Pass, Low Pass and Band Pass modes.

• Record Module – Record your performance and overdub new layers, or play along live. Transfer recordings between Animoog and any other apps which support the general pasteboard.

• Path Module – Direct ASE through Animoog’s X/Y space to create new expressive and shifting sounds that will blow your mind!

• Orbit Module – Control the rate of orbit in the X/Y space around the path you created for subtle to insane voice manipulation.

• Flexible Modulation Matrix – Amp, Filter and Mod Envelopes, LFO with infinitely variable wave shapes and sync, and four super flexible and assignable modulation slots.

• MIDI in – Use your Little Phatty or any other MIDI controller to control Animoog.

The latest version of Animoog is here with exciting updates as well and new features. Integrating this incredible synthesizer into your performance and production environment just got easier. New features include longer loop time in the record module, categorized presets, and fully assignable MIDI cc’s. In this video Moog’s Product Development Specialist, Amos Gaynes, shows you how to use Animoog’s new MIDI control features and explores some of the new creative possibilities.

MidiPads For iPhone

It’s finally here for the iPhone folks. Way cool midi controller by Crossfire Design. MidiPads, only available for the iPad since now, has also been released as
version 1.6 for the iPhone. It has got the same features as the iPad version, but to respect the smaller area, it features a slidable layout similar to the Facebook app. Instead of a customizable bottom part, two additional pages allow customizing the layout.

MidiPads for iPhone is a drum pad controller and sports 64 drum pads, which can be resized in both size and area. The bottom part is fully configurable by the user with resizable touchpads, faders and buttons. Both faders and touchpads support snapping to a value, fading to the touch position (duration user-configurable) and bouncing. One very unique feature is the drumpad-integrated X/Y-controller: Change your instruments’ or your effects’ sound just by moving your finger while still triggering – very useful also for DJ software like Traktor Pro.

All elements can be edited by the user: Color, label, details can be changed for each element individually, Midi channel and Midi CC/Key can even be set per sender – and each element supports multiple of them per event. Faders, drumpads and buttons can receive incoming Midi values: Faders act as VU meters, drumpads/buttons glow depending on the incoming value.

MidiPads for iPhone supports Midi over Core Midi compatible adapters (iRig Midi, Line6 Midi mobilizer II) and network Midi – take your iPad on stage and trigger your music wirelessly! New is virtual Midi support – trigger multiple iOS Midi apps with MidiPads at the same time! Included is also an extensive manual which helps you to set up all connections and configure MidiPads.

Welcome to MidiPads, the professional and fully configurable drumpad controller, now also for your iPhone! This is a Midi controller for Network MIDI, virtual MIDI and iPhone connector MIDI interfaces. With Network MIDI, you can take your iPhone on stage and trigger your music wirelessly! Or imagine to be a DJ who can dance with the crowd while tuning in and playing the next track…

IMPORTANT: This is MIDI a controller app. It controls other MIDI capable music apps and devices, it won’t produce ANY sounds itself.
