Kaossonome For iPad

What would happen if you crossed a Monome with a Kaossilator? You would get the Kaossonome by Alexander Randon, an instrument inspired by Korg’s Kaossilator and the Monome. It features Kaoss Pad-like sampling programs and is fully Monome 256 compliant. Additional programs include an algorithmic step sequencer, a beat synced sample chopping performance controller, and many more.

Now you can get the iPad version of this device. It’s called the Arpeggionome. The Arpeggionome is a musical instrument designed specifically for the iPad. With the Arpeggionome, you can design and perform intricate patterns of musical notes at incredible speeds and with precise control.

MUSICAL EXPRESSION AT 480 NOTES PER SECOND.
The Performance Matrix is the Arpeggionome’s main musical interface. Touch any Control Point in the Performance Matrix to trigger the notes in the pattern.
• Move your finger left and right to set the reference-note of the pattern.
• Move your finger up and down to set the pattern’s speed. 

• Control up to 480 notes per second, nearly 30,000 notes per minute.

VIBRATO AND TREMOLO, ESSENTIAL FOR 8-BIT SOLOS.
The iPad’s accelerometer controls vibrato and tremolo.

• For expressive changes in pitch, tilt the iPad left and right to apply vibrato.
• For expressive changes in volume, tilt the iPad forward and backward to apply tremolo.

DESIGN AN ARPEGGIO FROM SCRATCH…
Eight touch-knobs are used to design the Arpeggionome’s pattern. The touch-knobs are also great for performance. They can be changed in real-time, and then double-tapped back to their saved value.

• Key & Scale – sets the key and scale of the pattern.
• Octave Range – sets the starting and ending octaves of the pattern.
• Octave Style – sets how the pattern moves between octaves
.
• Control Range – sets the placement of the Control Points.
• Notes – sets the number of unique notes that will be triggered
.
• Step Distance – sets the distance between each note of the pattern
.
• Notes Style – sets how the pattern moves between notes

 the global tempo.

…OR USE A PRESET.

BEAUTIFUL AND INFORMATIVE VISUAL FEEDBACK.

The Arpeggionome provides visual feedback for your position in the Performance Matrix, every note you trigger, vibrato amount, and tremolo amount.

• Your position in the Performance Matrix is represented by the intersection of two green lines.

• Every note you trigger flashes green in the keyboard above the Performance Matrix.

• Vibrato and tremolo are represented by the two sliders below the Performance Matrix.

Korg Kaoss Pad For iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch

Korg Kaoss Pad For iPad iPhone and iPod Touch

I had a dream and in that dream there was a Kaoss Pad for iOS devices. Let’s call it iKP. For those who are not familiar with the Kp3 Kaoss Pad it is an effects processor with a X/Y interface and is designed for live use. The iKP app will most likely be a stripped down version with basic effects like gating, delay, filter, bit crunch, chorus, and flange. Additional effects, as they are developed, will be in app upgrades that can be purchased as additional modules. The iKP HD will integrate seamlessly with Alesis’ iO Dock audio interface allowing performers to plug their rig directly into the iPad. iPhone users can use the iRig interface by IK Multimedia to do the same. I’m thinking the iKP will be announced at Winter NAMM 2012 but hoping it will be out before then!

In the meantime you can enjoy the SynthPad app which was based on a similar concept except it’s a bit more like the Kaossilator.

SynthPad is an instrument inspired by the interface of the Korg Kaossilator family of devices. Instead relying on piano keys to register notes, SynthPad uses a dedicated touch surface to control the sounds. Additionally the Y-Axis on the touch surface can be used to control different parameters, like filter cutoff and LFO values, making it an extremely expressive little toy. Its sound engine is a fully programmable monophonic virtual analog synthesizer. Among its parameters one can find: – 2 oscillators with different wave shapes – Fine tuning of the second oscillator – Volume Envelope – LFO modulation – A Low-Pass filter – Filter Envelope – Arpeggio Additionally, the scale and the key on the touch surface can also be configured, making this instrument ideal for live improvisation. SAVING PATCHES: It is possible to save patches after you have modified them by following these steps: – Modify a patch parameter – Notice that the bank letter for that patch turns red – Touch the red bank letter to save the modification – Your patch has now been saved. (Notice the red status on the bank letter is gone) ENABLING THE LOOPER The looper is just a special setting on the DELAY feature. To activate it, do the following: – Go to the delay settings page – Turn the DELAY ON – Set the TIME to 100% – Set the FEEDBACK to about 75% – Set the MIX to about 75%
