Rytmik Ultimate iPad Groovebox App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Rytmik Ultimate

Cinemax Games announces Rytmik Ultimate. Rytmik Ultimate is a logic progression from Rytmik Retrobits (originally for Nintendo DSi). This new version (for iPad, DSi, and PC) has taken music creation to one level higher thanks to new features. It allows you to share your songs with other users through the Rytmik Cloud. Rytmik can serve as a music player of songs uploaded on Rytmik Cloud with it and on top of that, users may exchange their songs and cooperate on their composing.

Another new feature, which is also the most desired one among fans, is exporting and saving music to a local storage. Once your work is complete, you can save it in WAV format.

That’s not all! Every instrument is now a wavetable synthesizer. With the advanced effect module you have more power to shape sounds with the ADSR envelope, vibrato, portamento, noise shaper or digital delay.

In addition to that the drawable waveform synth module allows a user to draw and modify their own wave and use it as a sample oscillator – with that you can use Rytmik Ultimate as a sonically unique chiptune synthesizer.

Rytmik Ultimate comes with a sound library of more than 750 instruments containing the libraries of the previous Rytmik series (Rytmik, Retrobits, Hiphop King and World Music) and adding a brand new set of samples ranging from deep dubstep kicks and basses to cutting synth leads and special effects.

Rytmik Ultimate with Rytmik Cloud will of course include more features and additions to the popular series to enrich your experience with playing with sounds and creating music on the go.

Key Features:

Share your songs via Rytmik Cloud
Export your music in the WAV format
More than 750 musical instruments
A drawable waveform synth module
Advanced effects like the ADSR Envelope, Digital Delay, Noise Shaper, Sample Offset and Loop Definition and more
Almost every effect parameter can be modulated via the step sequencer
Simple and Intuitive yet Powerful Interface
