Elastic Drums Adds Futuristic Synths
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Elastic Drums is a music app showcasing an interactive drum kit, that enables to create a huge range of rhythmic grids, ranging from classical analog drumkits up to experimental soundscapes.
It contains six channels of high quality synthesized drum sounds, a step sequencer and 4 effect channels. All important control parameters are automatable. The result: Elastic drum composition with a unique character!

What’s New in Version 2.1
– 4 new IAP „Futuristic synths“ – that enhance the sonic possibilities
– Simplified Midi assignment
– Possibility to Restore In-App Purchases
– New equalizer in Master Section
– Newest Audiobus SDK
– User-samples get zipped now when sending a user preset via email
– Automation is recordable via Midi CC now (only one CC at a time)
– Midi Send is now also sending triggers of jam page
– New Samples and Presets by Servando
– New Presets by Deadfader

Features:
– 6 synth channels with 13 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone, sampler)
– 12 parameters for each synth engine
– automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
– 4 send effect channels with 2×13 mono effects and 2×11 stereo effects
– automation for all of the 8 possible effect parameters via xy pad
– master effects (stutter, delay, compressor …)
– 16 step sequencer for the 6 channels, each with it’s own tempo multiplier & length
– record audio and export to Soundcloud or Audioshare
– email audio recordings and presets
– Audiobus, Audiobus Remote, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Link support
– Midi learn/Midi implementation of the most important parameters

Because all sounds get generated in realtime, the app is cpu heavy! iPhones 5 and greater can handle it with no problem, on iPhone 4s effects 3 and 4 get switched off by the engine automatically to save some cpu power. iPhone 4 and iPad1 are NOT recommended!

Patterning UPDATE is HUGE!! MIDI Mapping, Audio Export, More!!
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , ,
Patterning Icon

Patterning By Olympia Noise

Massive update for one of my all time favorite apps! In this update they added a ton of new features to improve your creative workflow — including audio export, new and improved sync options, a more useful timeline, MIDI mappings, as well as interface improvements that make Patterning even more fun and inspiring to work with. As always, let us know if you have any questions or run into any issues.

ON SALE FOR A LIMITED TIME! 50% OFF

Audio Export
Patterning now includes a highly configurable audio export function for getting your drum tracks out of Patterning and into the next stage of your process. It’s easy to turn your beats into perfect audio loops or entire songs in .WAV format. Bounce individual tracks or the main mix and save your files to AudioShare, iTunes File Sharing or using “Open in….” to save to Dropbox or other apps.

Patterning Audio Export

MIDI Mapping
Map your hardware MIDI controller to control mixer and sample settings, trigger pattern changes, and more. Assign CC’s, notes, or program changes to parameters using the MIDI learn function, and fine tune parameter ranges with the MIDI configuration menu. MIDI mappings can be imported from other songs to easily reuse your favorite mappings.

Patterning Midi Learn 2

Patterning Midi Learn 1

New & Improved Sync Options
A consolidated Sync menu makes your sync settings easier to configure. In addition to Ableton Link, Patterning now supports Inter-App Audio sync and a completely re-written MIDI Clock implementation. Inter-App Audio sync and transport controls are available when connected to the master Inter-App Audio port.

Patterning Sync

Inter-App Audio Track Output
Patterning now supports individual Inter-App Audio outputs for each track as well as the master output. Connect up tracks to Audiobus, AUM, or another Inter-App Audio host to apply effects to individual tracks.

MIDI Output Enhancements
In addition to notes, MIDI enabled tracks can now send automation data in the form of CC or pitch bend messages. Track layers are assigned to MIDI destinations according to the MIDI standard. MIDI Track settings can be imported from other songs for easy reuse.

A New Timeline
Patterning’s timeline has been updated, making the creation of songs a whole lot easier and more fun. You can now make multiple selections, and use “duplicate,” “duplicate insert,” and “duplicate at end” tools to quickly repeat sections of the timeline. In addition, each timeline block now has a “reset rotation” option to allow patterns to snap to their beginnings in the timeline. This is useful for rotating or odd meter patterns, as well as creating stutters or fills in the timeline.

Patterning Update

Sample Preview
Preview samples in the sample library! To enable, toggle the speaker icon in the top right of the sample library. Preview uses the current sample settings (pitch, pan, effect sends, etc) to help you tweak your sounds.

Custom Drum Kit Image
Import custom images from your photos library for your drum kits. Tap the drum kit image to select and edit a photo.

Other Improvements
Improved quality of pitch shift algorithm.
Adjustments to layout on iPad Pro.
Added Mute/Solo on “sample” tab.
Peak level metering throughout the app.
Stability improvements.
A cool new icon.
