WerkBench Sampler Sequencer For iPad

WerkBench Sampler Sequencer For iPad

Werkbench arrives with a wicked new update! At the heart of WerkBench are two step sequencers that can sample sounds directly into rhythms and then warp those sounds with synthesizer type controls and high-quality audio effects.

What’s New in Version 3.1.0
**We added Ableton Link and Kymatica AudioShare support!**
-Ableton Link’s technology let’s you easily sync WerkBench with other apps and the rest of your studio. No computer or additional software required, It just works. It’s amazing. Thanks Ableton.
-AudioShare support allows easy transfer between WerkBench and the popular audio editing/managing app AudioShare by Kymatica. WerkBench can now open all types of audio files into the importer.

**We implemented a better ‘initialize’ option**
Previously, there was no way to start over completely from scratch. Now you can choose ‘New session’ via the folder button.

**We implemented a better AudioBus control panel**
-Brought back the play toggle.
-Added a record button. Now you can temporarily disarm recording while working on sounds in another app and then re-arm your steps without having to switch back to WerkBench. Saves you some clicks!

**We fixed some things!**
-Step editing knobs now default to sensible values and are easier to control.
-Some buttons were hard to tap.
-Got rid of a click that would happen in the envelope with long low sounds.
-Saved loops now recall their first and last step correctly.

WerkBench features:

–“Fancy Controls” (pitch, lowpass filters, highpass filters, envelopes, and more!)

–Edit the level, pitch, pan, low-pass filter, high-pass filter, envelope attack & decay, echo send, reverb send, and bit crusher effects independently for each of the 128 steps!

–All of these settings can be: performed and recorded in real-time, randomized, or programmed on the sequencer grids.

–Individual sequences can have arbitrary start and end points (they can even run backwards and be any length up to 16 steps)

–Chain sequences to build longer loops (1 – 128 steps!).

–Modeled tape echo for spacey effects with a sweet real-time visualizer, tempo sync, and free running modes.

–Reverb with fully sweep-able controls for decay, color (tone), and mix.

–Save and load loops or whole sessions of 8 patterns.

–Share loops between devices easily via airdrop, iTunes, e-mail, etc.

–Import wav files to chop up with our editor (the editor also works as a granular synthesizer!!)

–Export loops and recordings via Audio Copy, iTunes file sharing, and email.

–MIDI sync and MIDI note modes. Each of the 128 steps can be triggered on its own MIDI note.

–User-programable scales per side.

Triqtraq supports Ableton Link

Triqtraq will soon support Ableton Link. Link is a technology that keeps devices in time over a wireless network, so you can forget the hassle of setting up and focus on playing music. Link will soon be available to the wider music-making community as a built-in feature of a growing number of iOS apps.

Triqtraq is a sort of all in one Groovebox type app with an intuitive easy to use interface. It’s perfect for creating beats and sampling.

SUPER QUICK INTERFACE
• Compose and tweak beats fluently in an all-in-one window interface, without ever hitting stop.
• It’s all about touch: build up, vary, mangle and break your patterns with a swipe of your finger.
• Compose up to 16 patterns, and arrange them in the 16 step queue to build entire songs.

TWEAK YOUR (OWN!) SOUNDS
• Have endless fun with the real-time sound manipulation by recording various effect and parameter sliders.
• Add that personal touch and record your own sounds while jamming, with the super fast microphone recording feature.
• Get creative with a large library of over 400 included samples in 4 categories: Drums, Bass, Percussion and Keys.
• Take your custom sample library on the road by importing or pasting sounds from other apps.

GO DEEP WITH THE ADVANCED POSSIBILITIES
• Surprise yourself and make endless variations of one loop: give each of the four channels a different length.
• Every recorded parameter automation can have its own length too, resulting in ever evolving rhythms or melodies.
• Create your own original grooves by changing the swing amount and BPM per step.

SHARE IT & PLAY TOGETHER
• Get your recorded tunes out there and export your tracks to Soundcloud or Mail.
• Move ideas to other apps and store audio recordings on Dropbox (via Open in…).
• Get an even bigger sonic palette by using it along other apps with Audiobus and Inter-app-audio.

I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements.
