KRFT UPDATE ADDS NEW FEATURES
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

KRFT is a modular instrument for expressive music production that we built to challenge the two decade old paradigm of the multi-track DAW.

ON SALE FOR A LIMITED TIME!

Designed from the ground up with a focus on live experimentation and expressive interactions, KRFT will inspire you to make music that would normally be out of reach.

Rather than being confined to a fixed interface KRFT lets you create a surface that suits your musical needs whether you’re building an experimental groove box or composing an entire track.

Use it standalone with its powerful internal audio engine or with your studio & MIDI enabled gear, such as Ableton Live or Logic Pro X.

What’s New in Version 1.6.0
** Transform Cells **
– An amazing new way to explore musical ideas, the Transform Cell takes a Timeline and transforms its notes in real time.
– The transforms available are Note Repeat, Arpeggiate, Rhythmize, Harmonize, Beat Repeat, Quantize, Reverse, Invert, Rotate, Random Key & Random Time
– Apply the same transform to multiple timelines and combine multiple transform cells for wild results!

** Sync: Step **
– Setting a timelines sync to “step” will make a timeline start from the next note in its sequence.
– Use this with the hold interaction to step through a melody or drum beat with every tap.

** Cell => Explode **
– The new explode function allows you to split an existing timeline into multiple cells.
– You can split a timeline either using a slice length or per key.
– Use this function to split out a drum kit into its individual parts or to easily create a keyboard.

** Matrix 2.0 **
– Now you can multi-select notes. Just long hold on the matrix and then drag over notes to select them.
– Selections can be moved, deleted, resized, copied & pasted – even into other loops.
– You can also apply transforms to these selections, such as invert, reverse, humanize and more!
– Added an undo button!

** Save user presets **
– Now you can save your user presets and use them across your projects.

** Minor Improvements **
– Added 4 new scales => Major Blues, Minor Blues, Whole Tone, Klezmer
– Added INIT patch for bass and lead synths
– Added noise param on synth engine
– Improved menu speeds
– UI Improvements
– Bug Fixes πŸ™‚

KRFT Music Creation App For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

KRFT is a new approach to music creation. Build beautiful interfaces from a toolset of musical cells. Make anything from a funky groove box to a full composition, and everything in-between. Open the door to new workflows and inspiration.

*** LAUNCH DISCOUNT – 40% OFF UNTIL 20TH FEB ***

Moving away from the typical 80s multi-track paradigm found in most music making software, KRFT is a unique and inspiring way to create music. By combining a variety of loops, dials, effects and more, you build your own customized musical Surface. These interfaces are a collection of musical functions and ideas that can be controlled and interpreted in real time.

The nature of this workflow allows you to make expressive decisions on-the-fly and create dynamic compositions that would be difficult to achieve in typical music software.

MODULAR MUSIC MAKING
Don’t be confined by pre-defined interfaces, make your own rules! Want to build a song? Add loops and groups to build a structure. Need to add a layer of jam-ability? Add drum fills, live effects and filters. Now get jamming!

POWERFUL SOUND ENGINE
A highly optimised and high quality custom sound engine is at the core of KRFT. Choose from 50 Bass presets, 50 Lead presets, 14 Drum Kits & over 50 Sound Effects to make your creations. Go deeper and tweak filters, effects and more to make the sound your own.

NON-LINEAR COMPOSITION
Rather than writing a song from start to finish, KRFT lets you play and re-interpret your composition giving you the opportunity to experiment and add flair in real time. Record multiple takes and export them to your favourite audio software or upload online.
