Music Memos automatically detects your tempo, rhythmic feel and chords, and lets you instantly hear your musical idea accompanied by a rhythm section with realistic drums and bass. View the chords you’ve played, add comments and lyrics, or share your recordings with friends or directly to Apple Music Connect.* And it’s easy to take your favourite ideas into GarageBand, so you can add more instruments and continue building your song.

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!

LoopTree

Posted by Mikers On July - 20 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (5)LoopTree is an exciting new breed of looper that brings more fun than ever to creating live music! Record and group practically unlimited vocal and instrumental loops using a powerful, layered interface that gives you unrivalled control over the music you create.

Get your creative juices flowing and evolve your loops using the built-in filter and multi-touch beat repeat.

http://www.looptreeapp.com/

LoopTree solves the problem of destructive merging by instead combining your loops into layers. You retain individual control over your original loops and you can also control them as one using the new layer.

Note: of course nothing’s truly unlimited, but we haven’t programmed any specific limit to the number of loops or layers you can have. If you keep adding loops, eventually you will start to hear audio glitches.

FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS

• Unlimited number of loops (practically!)
• Non-destructive layering
• Beat repeat – sample, repeat and reverse loops
• Filter – add variety with an LPF, BPF and HPF

RECORDING

• Normal recording – fixed or multiple length loops
• Chained recording – select multiple tracks to record loops back-to-back
• Layered recording – equivalent of non-destructive overdubbing

LOOP LENGTH

Within a session, all loops are a 2^n multiple of the shortest loop (2x, 4x, 8x, etc). This makes it really easy to set the loop length whilst recording.

EASY TO USE

• One-finger volume/pan control on individual or simultaneous loops
• Group control – group tracks into layers; parent tracks control all layers of child tracks.
• MIDI Control
• Quantize options
• Metronome – create custom accented rhythms

SHARING AND IMPORT

• Support for IAA, AudioBus – best used with LoopTree in the foreground
• AudioCopy – copy session recordings and combined loops
• AudioPaste – start your session with pasted audio
• Share sessions and recordings via email, iTunes and SoundCloud

AUDIO INTERFACES

LoopTree works well with headphones, but for truly outstanding quality, we recommend using a USB audio interface. We have tested the following interfaces:

• Behringer UCA222 and 202
• Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 (includes MIDI)
