ScaleGen

Posted by Mikers On October - 1 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

Perhaps not something everyone will need on a daily basis, but certainly a handy tool for creative music makers seeking some interesting scale constructions…

screen480x480 (14)ScaleGen – the ultimate scale generator and editor!

Generate and manipulate musical scales in any way you can imagine.

You think you know what a scale is – think again. In ScaleGen you can do all that you would traditionally imagine when it comes to scales and pitch organisation, and then much, much more.

Define or change scales in the most detailed and intricate way. Audition the scales you make from within the app or export it as a MIDI file or to our app Gestrument – the revolutionary gesture-instrument.

This is the tool for anyone who wants to go beyond the traditional tonalities in whichever genre. ScaleGen comes with predefined scales of all kinds – from the traditional western scales and early music (Baroque/Renaissance) scales to asian scales from India, Indonesia and elsewhere as well as more conceptual scales based in the classical contemporary music.

This is the ultimate tool for experimental composers in any genre as well as for musicians who want to explore new ways of thinking about music.

The educational aspects of how pitches can be organised makes ScaleGen a must have for serious music students. But the directness of the app makes the learning both fun and artistically developing.

What is a scale?
For most people it is a collection of pitches within one octave, with equal temperament (all half tone steps equally long) or with microtonal intonation. That kind of scales are of course possible to make and edit in ScaleGen which gives you a keyboard with complete control of up to 24 pitches within one octave.

But the most interesting things with ScaleGen is when you start to think of a scale as something more open. Consider these questions:
What if your scale was different in every octave?
Why must a scale always go from down to up?
What if you could use a variation of the overtone series as a scale?
How does it sound if you divide the octave in five steps instead of twelve?

In ScaleGen we define a scale as any list of MIDI pitches that you can manipulate in many ways. You can start with a keyboard to input pitches, you can use the concept of the overtone series with multiplication of frequencies, you can define the number and size of the steps in the scale or you can import MIDI files and use them as scales. Then you can fine-tune your scale in a matrix with a number of tools.

You can then try and play your scale directly in the app, using built-in sounds or control your favorite external synthesizer/app through MIDI. If you want to try and play on your newly created scales in another way we recommend you open them in the app Gestrument – the revolutionary gesture-instrument. But you can also save the scales as text files or as MIDI files and open them in another program.

Mobile Convolution

Posted by Mikers On September - 23 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (5)LiquidSonics Mobile Convolution is a true-stereo reverb processor for use with Audiobus and Inter-App Audio hosts. It allows impulse responses to be stretched, cropped and envelopes to be applied for shaping the sound of a reverb in a very natural and musical way. A configurable pre-delay provides the ability to push a reverb back into a sound-field or to creatively add rhythmic delay effects.

With the high, low and peaking audio filters you can make adjustments to a space’s frequency spectrum, rolling off lows, highs or accentuating specific frequencies of interest with the variable gain and width control of the peak filter.

Stereo and true stereo impulse responses up to 90 seconds long can be loaded with very low input/output delay (latency). Mobile Convolution uses the same great LiquidSonics convolution engine that powers the desktop plug-ins which are used in both home and professional studios worldwide every day.

A collection of true stereo impulse responses is provided, and external impulse responses can be added quickly and easily via Open-In… support in apps like Mail, Safari and Dropbox, or downloaded directly from within the app.

Internal preset save and recall is provided, as well as Audiobus state-save recall support.

Arapolarmic

Posted by Mikers On July - 28 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (8)

I am totally blow away by this new app! It may not be affordable for everyone, but if you work with microphones in a professional studio/live stage environment on a daily basis, this would surely be an indespensible tool!… If you’ve purchased it, I’d love to hear your thoughts on how the app runs and what are the pros and cons…..Read on for the official blurb -

Arapolarmic is an innovative tool for the professional audio industry for monitoring the directivity of microphones and have a database with its technical characteristics (miclibrary) always with you. 

Arapolarmic makes possible for the first time the visualization of the microphone and its polar pattern, integrated within its audio environment (microphone set and sound sources) using Augmented Reality technology, providing visual reinforcement in making decisions for positioning of microphones on any set.

Arapolarmic shows the polar pattern of the microphone models that are included in the miclibrary of your device in real time. The position and orientation of the microphone is captured through the camera of your iPad, which is then overlapped over its polar pattern, allowing the user to view through the screen its orientation and position. This feature permits the user to see immediately the polar pattern of the microphone relative to the sound sources.

It is a very useful tool for teaching audio, recording studios, microphone sales, sound engineers, music producers, musicians…

The system integrates a database with a library of microphones. The data sheet of each microphone’s model is quickly available without an internet connection. The fast access to the data makes Arapolarmic a reference tool for querying the technical specifications of professional microphones.

The new versions, also improve recognition system computer vision system, will include new features and new microphone models, also the most requested by users Arapolarmic, expanding the library of microphones and, therefore, the tool.

Requirements of the computer vision system:
Lighting:
- It is recommended to work with indirect or diffused light. 
- The system operates under variable lighting conditions (cold, warm, strong, faint…) but a certain amount of light is necessary for the camera to detect the microphone. 
- Avoid working under backlight conditions.
- Direct light to some microphone’s body models might cause reflections that could confuse the computer vision system (CVS). 
- Conditions of fluorescent flashing light might cause less reliable tracking process (CVS). In this case, enhancing of the lighting conditions might improve the process.

Matching process
- Arapolarmic requires some user interaction in the matching process. The proper matching of the virtual and real microphones before initializing the process of automatic matching is determinant in keeping the polar pattern aligned and on the right position.  This process requires certain level of practice from the user.

The first Arapolarmic version requires working with soft movements while slowly moving away.
