Harmonics Wheel

Posted by Mikers On August - 28 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen640x640Harmonics Wheel is a complete music theory system as well as being a playable instrument laid out in a logical and easy to play format. It’s based on the harmonic and sub harmonic series, which are the basis of all music. It is a powerful tool for learning the basic relationships between harmonics, roots, chords, scales and the cycle of 4ths and 5ths.

Harmony can be viewed in several ways. Many musicians favor the chord progression method where each harmony within a song is represented by a chord symbol. While this method works it has a major drawback in that it does not show the key modulations of the music. Chords can change as often as every beat but the keys that the music modulates through move much more slowly and can cover several measures. Harmonics Wheel utilizes the “key” approach, which makes improvising much easier.

A common chord substitution method in jazz is to modulate to the complimentary key a flattened fifth away from the main key at will. Harmonics Wheel makes this easy by having both the Main Key and the Complimentary Key available at all times on separate “playbars” that are mirror images of each other. Utilizing the “Harmonics Wheel Pie” key changes can be effected instantaneously while simultaneously playing the “playbars”.

With very little practice one can become adept at playing the “playbars” and “harmonics wheel pie” producing exciting and complex harmonic and melodic structures that would take many years of practice and theory training to accomplish on a traditional keyboard or fretboard.

The record function in “Harmonics Wheel” enables users to keep their compositions and play them back in any order at will instantaneously.

“Harmonics Wheel” includes a Drum Machine and a “Randomizer” that greatly enhance the users compositions and add to the enjoyment and learning capabilities of the app.

Posted by Mikers On August - 25 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

2015-08-19 23.47.32Positive Grid (www.positivegrid.com), today announced the new Studio Racks Pack for the already popular BIAS FX iPad amp-and-effects processor. Now BIAS FX iPad users will find five of the most sought-after studio racks including new professional modules based on the LA2A® Compressor, PSA-1® Preamp, Manley® EQ, Echoplex® and Dual Spring Reverb. The new racks can be integrated with BIAS Amp models, run into two different signal chains, and share and download on ToneCloud, Positive Grid’s tone sharing platform. The new BIAS FX Studio Racks Pack is available now as in-app purchase.

Professional Boutique Compression

The new effect racks in BIAS FX includes a professional studio compressor based on the  Teletronix® LA-2A® studio compressor. It’s considered one of the finest compressors in many circles and it provides warmth and transparent all tube circuit compressor effect. It’s great to use as preamp module to drive more gain, or as a rack unit for tube compression.

Studio-Ready Preamp and EQ

The Studio Rack Pack also includes a drive preamp based on the Sansamp® PSA-1 preamp, this rack provides a full range of control parameters for your drive channel, you can dial in from a mellow blues lead to a punchy hard rock power chord. We also included a studio EQ based on the Manley® Massive Passive EQ, this boutique studio EQ contains 2 adjustable individual channel and each has 3 band EQ to shape the tone.

Powerful Delay And Reverb Racks

BIAS FX iPad users can now find the classic delay echoplex based on the famous Echoplex® tape delay unit, first made in 1959. the Echoplex set a standard for the effect in the 1960s—it is still regarded as “the standard by which everything else is measured.” Also included is an analog sounding dual spring reverb, based on the RCM-2R® Dual Spring Tube Reverb. It uses 2 tube simulated channel to provide warmth and wide range of analog spring reverb, adding much juice to your tone and make it swirl and rich.

screen480x480 (7)The MKSensation is a player’s live gigging module designed to give you the bread and butter sounds needed for a live session, gig, church service, or studio session. The layout, ease of use, sliders, and simple functionality is what has made our PC version so successful. There is no fancy splash page and it’s not rattled with hundreds of sounds. It’s designed to be loaded and played for instant layering and inspiration. You could could call this your instant rompler full of the sounds you would use all of the time and given our reputation of sampling, you know the sounds will be very warm, thick, and realistic. You won’t even believe that these sounds are coming from your iPad!

Our roots stem from being gospel musicians. In the good ol’ days we would have our multi-tier stack of keyboards and modules all layered together with a very intricate MIDI routing setup with all of or presets ready for live worship. Our setup would consist of a warm acoustic piano; a CP80 type of semi-realistic piano; lush strings; warm pad with filter cutoff; a very expressive tine; phat synth brass; a nice buzz saw; and a good ol’ real brass sound. Between these few staple sounds, we were ready for any gig, service, studio session, or performance. Think about it….When you go to the music store to try out a new synth, what do you end up playing the most…? You play the pianos, keys, strings, horns, and synth sounds. That’s what this module is all about. You can layer as many sounds as CPU permits, for instant inspiration on your iPad.

Sounds Available:
1. Piano 1 – MKS Piano 1
2. Piano 2 – MKS Piano 2

MiniReview: Patterning

Posted by Mikers On August - 22 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (4)You only need to check out Olympia Noise Co’s existing catalogue of music apps to know the talented team’s latest release, Patterning, is not going to be your typical beat maker. It’s the developer’s fresh approach to design and useability, combined with professional features that has made it so damn hard for me to put Patterning down over the past week I’ve been playing with it.

Billed as a ‘drum machine’, Patterning certainly fits that description, as it lets you build grooves quicker and easier than you can say ‘Amen break’, however it’s the unique ‘circular’ user interface that invites a level of exploration and experimentation that I haven’t seen in a groovebox before.

I’m sure there are better comparisons, but I liken the main interface to being able to peel back layers of an onion, with each layer being a new sound and pattern. As you move back and forth between the layers you gradually build a groove by adding beats by simply touching where and when you want the sound to play. And the volume of each beat is determined by how big you draw the line with your finger.

You can have a total of 8 percussive sounds per drum kit, but thanks to some basic sound editing features, there is no reason why you couldn’t also incorporate musical riffs as part of a groove, such as a bass line. There’s course and fine tuning available, plus adjusting the attack, hold and decay of each sampled sound. And while there is a comprehensive library of existing sounds inspired by classic drums machines through to traditional acoustic sounding drums, plus a collection of custom sounds from indy producers and musicians, you also have the ability to import your own sampled sounds via cloud storage and AudioShare.

Completed patterns can then be placed in a specific order within the song mode, where they play as part of the timeline for things like live performances.

Patterning also features a decent mixer and effects section. Parts can be soloed, muted, panned, and each has independent reverb and delay sends. The FX section offers control over the reverb and delay settings, plus there is an handy distortion and a 3-band EQ for the overall mix.

Last but not least, naturally Patterning talks to other iOS music apps with support for Audiobus, Inter-App Audio, and MIDI.

While there is an on-board tutorial to get you started, plus help section to explain each and every function, one of the joys for me was exploring the various features and learning as I went.

I honestly didn’t think the world needed another drum machine app, but Patterning has proved me wrong. It is highly addictive and extremely intuitive, yet powerful enough to appeal to serious beat makers, and easily one of the most refreshingly unique music apps so far this year.
