StreamByter MIDI Processor AU
StreamByter is a plugin for creating custom MIDI effects. It can be used as an Apple Audio Unit (AU) effect or as a standalone app connected via CoreMIDI virtual ports. StreamByter is ported from our acclaimed MidiFire MIDI processing environment.

An iOS device (minimum iOS 11) and a suitable AU host app such as AUM, apeMatrix, Cubasis or Sequencism is required to use the AU variant. To use with CoreMIDI, a routing app like MidiFire is recommended and an iOS device with at least iOS 8 is required.

Use StreamByter to:

– Extend the MIDI processing functionality of any AU host.
– Remap channels, notes, controllers (anything MIDI)
– Filter MIDI events coarsely or finely
– Clone or Delay any event
– Send any event automatically when plugin is loaded
– Create complex effects using programming concepts like conditionals, loops, variables (including array, timing and random), and math operators.

StreamByter is configured using a textual rules ‘language’ that defines how the effect should operate. Please see the support link to go to our website for full details.

ArpBud MIDI Sequencer + More
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

ArpBud has two main sequencers: the interval sequencer and the pitch sequencer, with unlimited number of steps for both. You can design your arpeggios by interval values in interval sequencer. And you can drive your arpeggios with a pitch sequencer by applying the pitch to each interval value of the interval sequence. Every step of pitch sequencer has its own interval sequencer. So, you are free to work on a single arpeggio as well as multiple arpeggios.

You can set the pitch bend, modulation and portamento MIDI control change values for interval sequencer steps. Also, you can set the rate, volume and loop count for each pitch sequencer step. You can copy/paste steps in between. And you can load other sequencers you have in your other projects.

You can set the layout of your projects and set the behavior of the knobs, or touch control gestures from the settings menu. It works for every screen sizes of iPhones and iPads. If you have an iPad user, you can take advantage of the split view feature and place both ArpBud and your audio MIDI app in one screen for working on them at the same time.

You can drive your favorite audio MIDI apps on your iOS or Mac/PC, like Garageband, Ableton Live, FMPlayer, Model 15 etc. ArpBud also supports Audiobus MIDI, IAA and Ableton Link for fitting into your current workflow. When you are not sequencing, if you have enabled any MIDI input (Audiobus MIDI app, connected hardware or other MIDI sending apps) for ArpBud, it will sequence the currently active interval sequencer for the playing MIDI input data.

Grid Music Adds Velocity Cells
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Grid Music is a handy little step sequencer with probability. I did a demo / review of the app and realized that I really like this one. This update is very nice.

What’s new in Grid Music v2.2.0:

• New: Velocity Cells

Velocity cells (stars) change the loudness and MIDI velocity of all notes when active. If a velocity cell is set to the lowest value, it is a rest (labelled “—”). If a rest is active, note cells will not make any sound and no MIDI note messages will be sent on that step.

Use velocity cells to add dynamics to your patterns, or create variations on a sequence of notes by adding a sequence of rests with a different interval. The new “16 Step Velocity” template can be used as a starting point for this technique.

• New: Octave Range

You can now adjust the range of note cells from 1 to 5 octaves.

• New: Added templates featuring velocity cells.
• Changed: The default MIDI velocity is now 80, or mezzo-forte (labelled “mf” on velocity cells).
• Changed: The full volume of the built-in synthesizer is louder.
• Changed: The Shift setting has a wider range, from -3 to +3 octaves.
• Changed: Pattern Length is now called Measure Length.
• Fixed: The Play button is now easier to tap.
• Fixed: Playback no longer stops when deleting the current pattern (if there is one before or after to replace it).
• Fixed: Document thumbnails would sometimes not be updated.

Grid Music is a miniature workshop for creative MIDI sequencing. It can be used to compose classic 16-step patterns, but can also create loops, random branches, and polyrhythm. Its 5×5 grid allows for countless arrangements of melody and timbre while keeping the entire composition visible and easy to understand. Pitch and rhythm can be directly manipulated by touch, and the structure of a pattern can be altered in just a few taps.
