The Arpeggionome is a musical instrument designed specifically for the iPad. With the Arpeggionome, you can design and perform intricate patterns of musical notes at incredible speeds and with precise control.

The Performance Matrix is the Arpeggionome’s main musical interface. Touch any Control Point in the Performance Matrix to trigger the notes in the pattern.
• Move your finger left and right to set the reference-note of the pattern.
• Move your finger up and down to set the pattern’s speed.
• Control up to 480 notes per second, nearly 30,000 notes per minute.
The iPad’s accelerometer controls vibrato and tremolo.
• For expressive changes in pitch, tilt the iPad left and right to apply vibrato.
• For expressive changes in volume, tilt the iPad forward and backward to apply tremolo.
Eight touch-knobs are used to design the Arpeggionome’s pattern. The touch-knobs are also great for performance. They can be changed in real-time, and then double-tapped back to their saved value.
• Key & Scale – sets the key and scale of the pattern.
• Octave Range – sets the starting and ending octaves of the pattern.
• Octave Style – sets how the pattern moves between octaves
• Control Range – sets the placement of the Control Points.
• Notes – sets the number of unique notes that will be triggered
• Step Distance – sets the distance between each note of the pattern
• Notes Style – sets how the pattern moves between notes
• Tempo – Sets

 the global tempo.
The Arpeggionome includes a Pattern Library with a wide selection of presets. You can also save your own patterns to the Pattern Library.
The Arpeggionome provides visual feedback for your position in the Performance Matrix, every note you trigger, vibrato amount, and tremolo amount.
• Your position in the Performance Matrix is represented by the intersection of two green lines.
• Every note you trigger flashes green in the keyboard above the Performance Matrix.
• Vibrato and tremolo are represented by the two sliders below the Performance Matrix.
• Includes an interactive tutorial.
• Can be used as a tool for learning music theory.
• iPad HD ready.
The Arpeggionome was first a hardware project, called the Kaossonome. At Music Hack Day San Francisco 2012, the project found its new home on the iPad. After receiving some great prizes at Music Hack Day, it became clear that the software successor to the Kaossonome, the Arpeggionome, was ready to rear its head on the App Store.

The Noisemusick app is a collection of THREE controllable synthesizers that generate interesting chaotic sounds. Have fun creating sonic bedlam, exploring weird soundscapes, or use it to GREAT EFFECT in your live performances and recordings. It’s squonky electric FUN for the whole family!

With Noisemusick you can:

* Choose a sound to match your mood: blue, green, or pink!
* Practice and probe to find interesting interactions of sound!
* Discover weird oscillations!
* Use it as a raw input to other filters and effects!
* Run on an iphone or iPad; it’s a Universal app!

To start making sounds with the Noisemusick app, your body has to complete the circuit between the touch pads. Pressing the pads in different combinations will generate different frequencies and modulations. By lifting a finger or sliding the hold switch you can create rhythmic patterns of noise. Move your fingers to change the resistance between your finger and the pads, which changes the frequency and beating of the tone. On each board the knobs change the quality of the tone in different ways.

BASE Pack arrives for Animoog

Posted by Mikers On April - 1 - 2012 1 COMMENT

ASHEVILLE, NC – April 1, 2012 – Moog Music today announced the release of the BASE Pack for Animoog, the World’s first professional mimetically mephitic sound set designed for a synthesizer. In honor of the release of the BASE Pack, Moog is offering Animoog for iPad, their groundbreaking synthesizer technology for iOS devices, for only $2.99 (regular price $29.99). Animoog for iPhone 4 and iPod Touch will be offered for only $1.99. This offer is only good for 7 days (April 1-April8, 2012). The BASE Pack is available for $.99 in the “Animoog Store” found in the Animoog app.

The BASE Pack is born from a quest Moog engineers embarked on with help from researchers at The University of North Carolina at Asheville to discover the most primordial sounds known to man. The result is the Biomimetically Augmented Synthesis Expansion Pack (BASE Pack) for the Animoog synthesizer.  The BASE Pack is a collection of timbres and presets that radically extends the sonic capabilities of Animoog from the purely electronic realm of its Moog ancestry into a richly organic world of biological sound.

The unique timbres of the BASE Pack are drawn from the sounds of the human body itself.  UNC-Asheville professor Dr. Wayne Kirby explains the significance of this sonic spelunking: “Our gastric activity in our body is really a microcosm of what we are as humans. The BASE Pack allows us to utilize the essence of this gastric activity to mold an expression of our external reality and internal reality.”

In addition to the over 40 new Timbre files, Moog recruited top sound designers to craft 25 powerful new presets which demonstrate the range of BASE sounds that Animoog can now emit. Some of the Presets included are Extravasation, Eructations, Bad Beans, Bathtub Bubbles, and Oops Sorry Excuse Me. Some of the Timbres included are Sploot2, WetGas1, Dribbly, WetSquish2 and Excuse Me.

“Only a professional synth engine like Animoog could render these organic timbres with such pungent detail,” said Moog Product Development Specialist, Amos Gaynes. “You can really feel the natural movements of the sound.”  UNC-Asheville professor Dr. Wayne Kirby is similarly enthusiastic: “Exploiting the rich character of the expulsion of bodily gas is the pinnacle of engineering success.”

Animoog is available for the iPad, iPhone 4, and iPod Touch in the iTunes Store.  Animoog version 1.0.2 includes the new “Animoog Store” where users can purchase new Timbres and presets from within the app itself.  The BASE Pack is only the first in a series of wide-ranging, boundary-pushing sonic updates to come.

Animoog for iPad Price:$2.99 in the App Store for 7 days (April 1 –April 8)

Animoog for iPhone & iPod Touch Price:$1.99 in the App Store for 7 days (April 1 –April 8)

BASE Pack price:$.99, available as an in-app purchase in the “Animoog Store”.
