StepPolyArp Unit AUv3
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

StepPolyArp Unit is a real-time polyphonic and polyrhythmic MIDI step arpeggiator and step sequencer. It can be used as a standalone application or an Audio Unit MIDI effect plug-in.

The application and the plug-in can operate as a step arpeggiator by automatically generating melodic patterns from played notes or chords, or as a step sequencer that doesn’t require MIDI input to play.

Unlimited presets can be saved on a local device and synchronized to iCloud. Each preset contains 16 patterns, 5 customizable polyrhythmic step controllers, and a 32 steps event matrix with 11 polyphonic and polyrhythmic lines driving the arpeggiator engine.

The application supports full internal and external MIDI connections for input and output, Audiobus MIDI sender, MIDI filter routing, Ableton Link sync, and MIDI clock source sync. An internal sound bank is included.

The Audio Unit MIDI effect plug-in supports multiple instances. A compatible host is required to run the plug-in. The host needs to support the Audio Unit MIDI effect format.

Refraktions is an 8-track generative MIDI sequencer with artificial intelligence that processes input over time to create loops tailored to each individual user.

I have to admit I was really excited to purchase this app and then when I did it was a tad disappointing (sorry dev) BUT this new update came today and solved a lot of the issues so I just had to publish a video. I hope you enjoy it!

What’s New in Version 2.2
• Audiobus 3.0.2 added. Refraktions is available as an Audio Source, MIDI Source, and MIDI Filter.
• App can now receive note input from external MIDI controllers or other iOS apps (as destination “Refraktions”).
• Play / pause functionality added by tapping center circle.
• Added 8th synth, “Coastal Synth.”
• Added ability to change root key in musical scales.
• Added per-track customization of playback, composition, volume, and pitch.
• Added global and per-track customization of MIDI sources and destinations.
• Added shake detection, which rearranges the composition.
• Improved note creation, including fixes to MIDI on / off for each tap.
• Rebuilt internal metronome with average drift variance of < 0.7 ms. • Switch from UserDefaults to CoreData for data storage. Get Refraktions

ChordFlow Update With Melody Tracks
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

ChordFlow is a songwriting sketchpad that will help you create amazing chord progressions and melodies for your songs fast and easily

What’s New in Version 2.1.0
=== MELODY TRACKS ===
Each song section can now have up to 4 melody tracks in addition to 4 arpeggio tracks that we had already. So you can now create complete song ideas with chord progressions, arpeggios, and melodies. Melodies are edited in the separate(from arpeggio) grid. You can specify scale of the melody grid and configure the length and the rate parameters. The chords that you configured in the chord progression editor will be shown in the melody grid view below the note grid. And also for more convenience, chord notes will be highlighted with grey rounded bars allowing you to see which notes of the melody matches the corresponding chord.

=== NEW TRACK CONTROL PANEL ===
There is now a track control panel in the main view, at the bottom, where you can specify destination of each track and mute/solo individual tracks. This settings are now stored individually for each song.

=== LOOP REGIONS IN ARPEGGIO AND MELODY EDITOR ===
You can now loop a region when you are in the arpeggio or melody editor. To add a loop region, tap on the timeline bar above the note grid. After that, the loop with the default length of 4 steps will be added. You can then move the loop region around dragging it by its center or you can stretch and squeeze it by dragging it by its ends. To remove the loop region just tap on it again. The loop region is only active while you are in the editor view. When you move back to the main view, the loop is automatically removed.

=== OTHER CHANGES ===
– Remove(Trash) button in arpeggio and melody editors now removes only the selected track. And there is no moro annoying confirm. If you tap remove button accidentally, you can restore the deleted track with the undo button.

– Line tool and delete tool behaviour changed a little. Before this update, when you started to draw a line or delete a region, you could only extend the already drown region. Now it behaves more expectedly. If you have drawn a line further than you needed you can no move back to make it smaller

– Arpeggio grid max length increased to from 32 to 64 steps.

– Color scheme changed. After introducing 4 new colors for melody tracks, I decided to switch to more neutral background colors, as it was not looking very good on the original blue schema.

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).
