Randgrid App For iPhone

Randgrid an app for making electronic music. It’s perfect for those who are familiar with analog synthesizers and sequencers.

The interface of Randgrid is based on classic analog synthesizers, drum machines and step sequencers.

You have a very powerful setup at your fingertips with two monophonic virtual analog subtractive synthesizers and fourteen sampled drum parts.

Note that the synthesizers are real and not based on samples, they are calculated in realtime and every parameter change immediately affects the sound generation.

The Randgrid Drum Machine is full of features. Use parameter locks to change it’s parameters for each step in the pattern (the same goes for the synthesizers of course). This lets you build the most dynamic complex beats you ever could dream of. You can alter parameters like panning, volume, flam, start/stop position of the sample (making it possible to play parts of the samples both forward and reverse), or the amount of delay/echo you want on each step in the pattern.

The advanced step sequencer is the heart of Randgrid, it lets you control virtually every aspect of the drums and synthesizers. Use parameter locks to change cutoff, resonance, envelope modulation, panning and many more parameters of the synthesizers for each step in a pattern.

Some of the great features are:

– 2x dual oscillator subtractive synthesizers
– 14x sampled drums
– stereo delay effect
– distortion effect
– Song sequencer
– Multiple patterns
– File manager
– Solo/mute groups
– Pattern randomizer
– Copy/Paste operations
– Parameter locks

Seline Ultimate iPad Synthesizer

Seline HD iPad Synthesizer

Seline 2.1 Ultimate is based upon the award-winning concept of the original Seline HD. The application has evolved from the “concept” to the “real workhorse” level and is now a very powerful musical tool, for instant production of tons of first-class musical ideas. The melodies can now be recorded to .WAV/.M4A and MIDI simultaneously. Hardware, virtual, wireless MIDI in/out, as well as Audio Copy/Paste are fully supported. There are 30 built-in instruments, 6 drones, 8 drumloops, and more downloadable content is available through in-app purchase.

Seline is a great live performance and improvisation music instrument that will keep you playing for hours, even if you haven’t touched any music instrument before. The sound is altered on the fly with a dozen of subtle AI algorhythms that add unbelievable expression, character and life to your music. Drones (chorded synth pads) are generated on-the-fly based on the complex analysis of your melody line and provide an excellent background layer for your melody.

Seline features a completely new, ergonomically designed playing surface called ioGrid, suitable for players with all hand sizes. The melodies are played with two hands, while keeping the iPad on the knees or on the table. Fully adjustable 16-note scale is divided into 2 parts (odd and even), which are then mapped on the left and right grids. Such way of note mapping is beneficial to the existing linear scale mapping solutions as it allows many more improvisation possibilities. And, of course, the player is never out of tune.

The completely redesigned, realistic-looking interface called ioGrid 2.0 brings many improvements to the original ioGrid. The white keys now represent the opposite part of the scale, thus all the scale is available for performance using only one hand. The variable-length note-to-note pitch slides are performed just by sliding between the yellow and the white keys with different speed. Resting your palm on the “pads” at the bottom of the screen allows to pitch-bend each note as on a regular controller.

Symbiosis of research, technology, and passion… Seline is the latest, most innovative and best-sounding music instrument for the iPad, aimed at easy creation of complicated, soulful, intricate melodies, backed with lush soundscapes. Record them all, and you’ll never run out of musical ideas!

Position iPad firmly on your knees or table and put your both hands on the surface in the way that is shown on the picture.

Index, middle and ring fingers are generally responsible for their respectable column, but baby finger can also be used in many cases.

Aim for the center of the key for more volume, slide to the outer region of the key to lower the volume of the sustained sound.

Arrows indicate that for every grid, higher notes are achieved by moving upper and closer to the center. The scale is divided into the odd (pink) and even (blue) part. They are represented on the upper keyboard so you can always see what you’re actually playing. Combine playing notes from different hands to achieve great results.

Use thumbs to tap the “tone-down” zone at the bottom of the screen, while holding any note, to go down 1 position in the scale. Use index/middle fingers to tap any of the “tone-up” buttons, to go up 1 position in the scale. These methods can also be used to create easy trills.

Use index fingers to move the combined pitchbend/vibrato joystick. Up/down is the pitchbend (+/- 2 semitones) and left/right is vibrato (center is no vibrato, sides are 100% vibrato). You can also tap anywhere in the zone of the modifier and the joystick will move to that position.

Tap and drag the attack joystick to modify the attack of the sound on the fly. Center is the quickest attack, sides are the longest.

Tap the drone indicator to start/stop drone. Drones are 100% automatic and can be only turned on and off. Tap only once and wait, since drones can have slow attack/release. While transposing, the first drone can be a bit off due to the rebuilding of the generation algorhythms.

Seline HD is available for $9.99
