CME WIDI THRU6 BT Review
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

So I decided to swap out my old midi solutions thru box in this setup with the CME WIDI THRU6 BT thru box so I could easily integrate my iPad and sync it to all this hardware. Didn’t take long to arrange the midi flow. Now I’m stoked to use my iPad in this rig moving forward. I have an audio interface to connect it to as well so I can record and sample to the pad. Overall I’m pleased with the results. Next I plan to pair it up with another WIDI interface. Stick around. Subscribe to my channel for more.

Woodstepper Demo Video
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Hey friends! I just moved to a new studio space so please forgive me for the video quality as I haven’t had a chance to test the waters and get the lighting dialed in yet. This is the first video I shot in the new space and now I know what tweaks are needed. With that said here is a quick start guide for Woodstepper. I just wanted to get you started using it as a DSP and sampler within AUM. It is a very deep app so please understand that I am considering a second video , part 2 if you will, with more in depth explanations of the MIDI and Oscillator features. I hope this gives you a general idea as to what this awesome app can do!

Band Creator and Audiobus Demo Review
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Band Creator

Today we’re going to have a look at an app called Band Creator by Wojciech Janiszewski. Band Creator is a simple drum and bass accompaniment app for iOS. You can play live into it using a microphone or an instrument on the input slot in Audiobus. I chose to put Audiobus to the test. I’m using an app called Real Guitar as an input device and it’s going to Band Creator as in the output slot.

It took Band Creator a few tries to get the rhythmic timing right. I found using an external metronome helped but still even with the metronome and simple spot on playing it had a tough time. It could be something to do with Real Guitar who knows. Perhaps I’ll do another demo using the microphone input and an acoustic guitar. I chose Audiobus this time because this is a new feature for the app and there wasn’t anything online demoing it. We did finally get it right though as you see in this demo. It would be nice to have a metronome built into Band Creator. I had to use an external one. The tempo it guessed was a little slow but it was close enough. Also there is no stop and start from the beginning button just play and pause and you can’t edit the chords or timing once recorded. The sounds are really basic. Would be nice to have access to higher quality realistic sounds.

What’s New in Version 2.3

* Audiobus integration
Band Creator is now compatible with Audiobus, an app that lets you to connect your audio apps! You’ll be able to use generated backing tracks as an input for other apps. Also, you can use another app sound as an input for Band Creator.

Jam to the exact backing track you want. To create tracks we use quality samples that were recorded using real instruments.

Band Creator
