waverails

Posted by Mikers On September - 8 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

waverails_screenwaverails is a modular path-based loop processor, inspired by avant-garde tape music and early electromechanical musical contraptions. Instead of recording, overdubbing and splicing together tape, waverails lets you splice, warp, blend and reverse audio (live input and/or samples) in real-time by using path-based modular components. waverails can be used as an audio processor or live performance tool to create effects and performances that aren’t easily replicated in real-time with traditional audio software and effects.

Create:
Lo-fi warped sound collages
Phased loops (just like your favorite 20th century minimalist composers!)
Chopped up real-time glitchy beats
Massive glittery ambience
Granular textures
Harmonic and rhythmic effects that transform input sounds into music

Features:
Audiobus and Inter-App Audio support (filter/effect port)
AudioShare support for importing custom samples
Control each modular component’s parameters in real time
Jump functionality lets you easily set cues and sync object positions and speeds
Fine grained or musical interval-based speed control
BPM control to match audio input tempo
Perform any task with a few taps, without needing any gestures/long presses.
No additional hardware or apps required, create new sounds using internal or imported samples
Info function to share and learn information about custom patches.

note: full patch editing and save functionality require in-app purchase

Infinite Looper

Posted by Mikers On May - 26 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (1)From the stage to the studio, Infinite Looper will let you capture musical ideas, and can provide the framework for songwriting, all in a single integrated app. Loop MIDI phrases easily, control six different instruments, and quickly assemble loops into full songs. Visit the Secret Base Design web site for details and demonstration videos.

* MIDI Looping
There are dozens of audio looping apps; Infinite Looper expands on this idea, allowing you to quickly select different synthesizers, and loop the MIDI to each with perfect synchronization. Each of the instruments can have up to eight simultaneous loops. The loops can be of different lengths, up to sixtyfour measures long.

* Internal SoundFont Engine
Built into the app is an extensive SoundFont library with hundreds of instruments, and multiple drum kits. Pianos, strings, guitar, brass, synthesizers — it’s all there. Everything you need to get going right away.

* Inter-App Audio
Infinite Looper can host IAA-compatible synth apps — take advantage of the wide range of innovative synths.

* MIDI In and Out
The app recognizes MIDI from other apps, over Bluetooth connections, and from hardware controllers. Secret Base Design is the developer of the innovative Apollo MIDI over Bluetooth — the first Bluetooth MIDI solution for iOS. We’re also partners in the musicIO app, which allows both audio and MIDI to be sent over an ordinary iOS sync cable. The app is built using the excellent MIDIbus library — the Secret Base Design team has been at the forefront of MIDI on iOS for years.

* More that just loops. Songs.
Built into the app is a loop sequencer — select different sets of loops for each section of a song, and the app will step through them automatically. You can build complex compositions, so that your songs evolve and breathe.

* MIDI Export
The iPad is an excellent music sketch pad, but it’s not the end of the road. Infinite Looper will export a MIDI file for a song, which can be loaded into professional desktop DAWs. Use your iPad to put together a demo, and then bring in the full set of studio tools to finish your masterpiece.

* Keyboards and Pads
The app features a responsive piano-style keyboard — adjust note velocity by touching towards the tops of the keys. And because on-screen keyboards can be hard to play, there’s also ten pages of programmable pads. You can quickly assign notes or chords to pads, making it easy to capture the progression for a song idea, and bring the whole thing into focus.

* Quantization and MIDI Latency
To lock down timing, you can toggle on quantization — or leave it off, for a loose, natural feeling. If you use external MIDI controllers, there can be latency in the MIDI messages — the app can time shift slight to account for the delay of Bluetooth connections or WiFi. And if you use an audio-to-MIDI converter app like MIDImorphosis, latency compensation can tighten up the timing.

* All the standards
Infinite Looper supports Ableton Link, making it easy to synchronize the app with other Link-enabled apps. There’s full support for Inter-App Audio and IAA MIDI, and Audiobus too.

* MIDI Learn
If you’re playing live, your hands might be busy with a keyboard or a guitar. With MIDI learn, you can control the app with a foot controller. Toggle on and off recording, switch tracks, and more. Infinite Looper is ready to be taken on stage, and used live.

* Import and Export
Easily share projects with friends using AirDrop, Dropbox, or by email.

* Take Notes
Want to jot down song lyrics, or details on a synthesizer or hardware setup? Infinite Looper projects include a text notepad, so you can capture whatever you need to!

Infinite Looper uses the Ableton Link library, the Audiobus library, and the MIDIbus library. Internal sounds are from the widely used SoundFont set by Christian Collins.

 

What’s New in Version 1.2

Added in scale-based keyboards; in addition to the standard piano layout, you can now select keyboards based on many popular scales, or customize the notes as you like. The keyboard can also be transposed easily.

A bug which could cause dropped or stuck notes when using the internal synthesizer has been fixed.

LooperSonic

Posted by Mikers On February - 18 - 2016 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480LooperSonic is a multi-track audio looper and recorder that will take your loops to the next level. Use it like a loop pedal to make loops, and then arrange those loops into complete songs with cut, copy, trim, paste, reverse, and undo/redo.

CREATE
Record a loop by tapping the record button at the beginning and the end of the loop just as you would with a loop pedal. Or start the metronome and set your loop to count in for hands free looping. Change the loop points on the fly while recording new loops without stopping playback. You can also do straight recordings without looping.

EDIT
Use cut, copy, trim, and paste to structure your loops and recordings into a song. Turn a loop into a backing track for a verse by duplicating a loop for a few bars. Merge tracks to make room for more recordings. Undo and redo recordings and edits up to 100 times.

PLAY
When you change the tempo, the pitch changes along with it, like a record player. Use this to make a guitar sound like a bass, or to sing out of your range. Along with the reverse feature you can make some pretty cool effects.

SHARE
Get audio in and out using Inter-App audio, AudioBus, and/or audio copy/paste. Share individual clips or a whole song mix with ease. Audio can be copied from song to song. Or a selection of clips can be mixed down and shared without stopping playback.

FEATURES:
-Undo/Redo up to 100 times
-AudioBus support
-Inter-App Audio support
-Audio Copy/Paste from other apps
-Change pitch and tempo like a record player
-8 tracks
-Copy
-Paste
-Delete
-Trim
-Reverse
-Track volume, and mute/solo
-Multi-select editing
-Join multiple clips (bounce)
-Supports 4/4, 3/4, and 6/8 time signatures
-Metronome
-Snappy interface
-Sharing is super easy

LooperSonic makes loops the same way a loop pedal does and just like a loop pedal, it requires precise timing to make a good loop. All sounds in LooperSonic are created by the user. For the best experience, make sure to wear headphones.

Ostinator-looper,sampler

Posted by Mikers On December - 2 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (5)Designed in the style of a familiar pedal box for effortless, uncomplicated, no fuss operation, Ostinator is a single track stereo phrase looper focused on hands free control during live performance. Use it to create anything from long loops to short decaying echoes. Crossfading options enable creation of seamless drones and overdubbing offers undoable “sound on sound” layering. All performance controls are available on a single screen but Ostinator’s main strength is painless remote control while it runs in the background.

FEATURES

– AudioBus and Inter-App Audio compatible.
– Supports AudioCopy, AudioShare and “Open In…”
– Audio file import & export via iTunes.
– Hands free operation using a MIDI controller.
– MIDI assignable to every performance parameter.
– Optional, adjustable crossfading for seamless loops.
– Adjustable fade out time when playback stops.
– Adjustable loop feedback for infinite looping or echoes.
– Re-trigger mode, loops can be restarted.
– Prerecorded loops can be loaded with MIDI program change.
– Up to 12 minutes of stereo recording time.
– Get up and running quickly with onscreen help.
– Built-in PDF Manual.

A NOTE FOR PROSPECTIVE PURCHASERS

Loops can be loaded, triggered and recorded remotely using MIDI controls (i.e. from footpedals or a sequencer). Tempo based looping is possible by sending the appropriate trigger messages but Ostinator is focused on simple manual control for live performers and as such does not provide any slicing, timestretch or pitch changing functions.

Ostinator is tested as thoroughly as possible and we hope there are no bugs left! If you do find one please report it to us rather than writing a negative review because of it. Email support@livingmemorysoftware.com with a simple description. We hate bugs too and we’re always ready to stamp them out quickly!
