Korg Electribe Wave For iPad

Korg announced Electribe Wave which is marketed for EDM producers. It comes with a hefty amount of aggressive sounding wavetables and cool motion automation to achieve some wicked Dubstep and Drum and Bass type growls. There aren’t a whole lot of presets (only 25) but there are quite a bit of drum samples. It is not an audio unit nor is does it support IAA. You can not import your own wavetables and samples either perhaps in a future update. There is also a Koass pad type X/Y pad.

The next evolution in music software. Powerful wavetable sound. The next generation ELECTRIBE produces state-of-the-art dance music.

The ELECTRIBE series first appeared in 1999. Since then each generation has inherited the iconic, intuitive operability of the original while incorporating the most up-to-date sounds and styles.

The ease of use, accessibility, sound and musicality of the ELECTRIBE reach new heights in this latest software version which features a powerful wavetable sound source, a “Quick Input” sequencer and a convenient chord pad that allows you to play a chord with one finger. Even if you aren’t a musical virtuoso, with ELECTRIBE Wave you can create state-of-the-art dance music like EDM, Future Bass, and Trap.

• Powerful wavetable sound suitable for the latest in EDM
ELECTRIBE Wave has a sound wavetable featuring sounds widely used in the latest music creation. Unlike a PCM synth, the wavetable allows you to repeatedly play fragments of short waveforms, and change the waveform position during playback. By combining the wavetable (which features a rich variety of presets) with a powerful filter and two modulation units, you can create an infinite number of innovative and sharp sounds that cannot be produced using standard PCM synths. Even without a deep knowledge of synthesis techniques, the carefully selected parameters make it easy to craft your sound.

• Improved user interface for quick composition
The familiar 16-step pad in the ELECTRIBE series enables speedy rhythm production. The ELECTRIBE Wave also features a new keyboard to play chords and scales. Even without musical knowledge, you can have fun making tracks without worrying about wrong notes. The sequencer features Groove, which can be used to breathe life into rhythm parts, as well as a special keyboard to enable smooth step input for synth parts on the graphical user interface.

• Convenient chord pad that allows you to play a chord with one finger
ELECTRIBE Wave features a chord pad that allows you to play chords with one finger. If you use the “Fetch” function, it will automatically extract the chords from the song that you are in in the middle of creating and assign those chords to the pad for fast and easy song creation. You can also easily assign and save your favorite chords. In addition you can use the arpeggiator to create new phrases!

• Motion Sequence records and plays temporal changes in sounds and effects
The ELECTRIBE series introduced a powerful motion sequence function that remembers and reproduces the movements of the knobs. ELECTRIBE Wave now offers this function for the synthesizer/drum parts so you can create a flow of sound overflowing with originality. If you use the built in KAOSS PAD you can change the sound to drastically with a single fingertip, easily storing and reproducing temporal changes. Remember the wave table POSITION to make real time minute changes to the sound performance.

• Song mode can combine patterns into finished songs
Use song mode to create a new track by simply arranging the order of existing patterns. Using only the ELECTRIBE Wave, you can take a song all the way from inspiration to completion. With audio file export, you can send a complete song or individual patterns to your favorite DAW, or upload to services like SoundCloud.

Novation Blocs Wave Loop Mixing App For iOS

Novation Blocs Wave iOS

From the dev “Blocs Wave is a music creation app designed to inspire new musical ideas. Easily combine original professional sounds across a wide array of genres. Tweak your sounds using beautiful touchable waveforms, and make your ideas even more unique. Record your vocals and instruments, and bring your ideas to life within minutes.”

My review: This app costs $4.99 and it comes with some loops. It’s an 8 track recorder/looping app and a loop mixing app. You can record into it and you can import your own loops. In this version you can NOT export a mix of loops as one sound file (maybe I missed something?). You are limited to exporting each of the eight possible loop pads individually. There are a ton of features found in other apps like GarageBand for example that are just not included in this app. I feel they rushed it out to test the waters. Sadly for the money it is just not worth it. I would get something like GarageBand which is loaded with valuable features for the same price. BUT if you’re looking to burn five bucks for a simple easy to use 8 track loop recorder/mixer then this might be for you. Keep in mind there is not a way to sequence the loops and record the sequence. It’s basically a manual track on track off type situation aka mute and unmute. There is no mixer page so to adjust the volume of a loop you have to click on it which means you can’t adjust multiple loops simultaneously. There are no effects and no sync options. You can not import a whole folder of loops just one by one. There is no user folder for imported loops. You have to import them individually each time. You CAN’T share your loop kits as one container file with a project again they have to be exported individually. No inter app audio support and does not support audio input from audiobus. Wow they just plopped a really simple basic no frills app down on us and want five bucks for it.

Get it now at a special introductory price.
