Ableton Note iPad and iPhone app

Start new musical ideas with a curated selection of sounds and effects. Play beats and melodic parts, sample your world, and continue your tracks in Ableton Live.

Note is a place to form ideas, experiment with sounds and find direction. Get your ideas out or play until inspiration hits using a selection of Ableton Live’s drum kits, synths and melodic instruments. Or create your own sound palette by recording the sounds around you into Note’s sampler instruments using your phone’s microphone.

If you want to take your ideas further, use Ableton Cloud to send your projects to Live without leaving the app. Open your project from Live’s browser, then keep working – you can edit all your MIDI notes, and all your samples and sounds from Note are exactly the same.

• Tap out a beat using the 16-pad grid
• Quantize your beat to fix any loose timing
• Nudge notes to correct mistakes

• Change parameters to shape your sound
• Experiment with effects

Start with a melody:

• Change parameters to shape your sound
• Add effects to experiment with sound design

Sample your environment:

• Create your own kits by recording percussive sounds into Note’s Drum Sampler
• Record tonal sounds to create your own Melodic Sampler instruments
• Manipulate your samples by cutting, filtering or repitching them
• Shape or transform your sounds with effects

Capture improvisations:

• Play something, then tap the Capture button to keep it
• Play at the tempo that feels comfortable and Note will detect it

FAC Medusa Compressor For iOS

Compressors are probably the most used audio processors and you surely know what it’s all about and how it can help to control the dynamic range of your audio signal. So let’s get straight to what makes FAC Medusa a new versatile and characterful compressor!

FAC Medusa combines different dynamic processors into a single and easy to use unit, the input signal flows along the following stages:

1) “Pre-amp with tone control and saturation circuit” The input signal is split into three bands of frequencies (Low, Mid and High) according two adjustable crossover points. Setting the level and the saturation amount of each frequency band will definitely make the effect more natural or characterful.

2) “Compression” In addition to the usual controls you may expect, FAC Medusa also provides two types of compression. Downward compression, which is obviously the most common, decreases the level of audio signal above the threshold. And also Upward compression which is less known, despite powerful, and increases the level of audio signal below the threshold. The compression can operate either on the SUM of the frequency bands (L+M+H) or on each frequency band coming from stage 1.

3) “Parallel compression and Brickwall limiter” The master Brickwall limiter is optional and will ensure that the output of stage 2, possibly blended with the original audio signal, remain under control. The limiter comes with threshold and release time controls.

As you have realized FAC Medusa has many faces: gentle, natural, or aggressive and colorful. Choose the one you want and be prepared for an exciting sound design experience. Whether you are a budding music producer or passionate amateur musician in any genre, you will definitely find a happy use for it!

Dark Halloween Soundtracks

Dark Halloween Soundtracks

Soundtrack Loops presents Dark Halloween Soundtracks Horror Musicscapes & SFX. Soundtrack Loops is in the habit of observing Halloween with annual sonic offerings, and they do it in style. Dark Halloween Soundtracks is a wonderful dark ambient cinematic music production resource that fits right in with the best assets in its class. Deep, wide, and lush, these sounds take their time to unspool sustained moments of dread, awe and dark majesty, with an occasional nod toward the bizarre and surreal. The 81 loops are timed in a range of midtempo BPM; many are beatless and long enough to be used in sound beds. The included 19 one shots have truly remarkable 3D sonics that deliver impact sounds with discrete components positioned in space and independently moving through space to create hyper-realistic, wide-open shimmering effects that leave plenty of room for clear dialog and other music and sound elements. Here we’re reminded that certain Soundtrack Loops content occupies a sweet spot between Foley and music, and this in itself is refreshing and inspiring. Similarly, Dark Halloween Soundtracks has a deep musicality built into its sound effects—really useful when it comes to dark ambient soundscapes, subliminal rhythms, and creating well-paced music on soundstages where everything works together with plenty of space to spare. Available in ACIDized .wav and Apple-looped .aiff format for Garageband
