Nanoloop

Posted by dazz26 On February - 17 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

Nanoloop for iPhone combines sequencer, synthesizer and sampler in one package. Features include:

– Six channels, each can be synth or sampler
– Fast and easy to use stepsequencer
– Synthesizer with envelope, filter, LFO and other parameters
– Sample external audio or nanoloop’s own sound output
– Song editor with loop function
– Save function
– Works on 1st gen iPod touch and 2.2 software
– Send and receive projects via e-mail, using the iPhone’s / iPod’s e-mail program

sequencer

The sequencer displays the pattern as a grid of 4 x 4 rectangles. Notes can be set, removed and edited just by tapping and swiping. This editing without mode-changes and the straight, generous layout ensure a smooth workflow.
Unlike the Game Boy versions, nanoloop for iPhone only allows to set pitch and one additional value step-wise in the sequencer. All other sound parameters are controlled channel-wide through the synth panel.

synthesizer

The simple but powerful synthesizer allows to create a great bandwidth of sounds, including beats, noises, basses and pads. Available synthesis types are:

– rectangular wave with filter
– FM
– LFSR noise generator

Rectangular wave and LFSR sound similar to the Game Boy’s and other console’s soundchips but offer more fine control and additional effects (lfo / envelope for pulse width or filter, simple phaser for noise).
The FM synth is the simple type with two sine wave oscillators, with fixed base frequency and variable modulator frequency. An envelope / LFO can be applied to modulation amplitude or frequency. For a sweeping spatial effect, the modulator can be slightly detuned, with inverted phase for left/right.
Each synth channel is two-voice polyphonic and a stereo effect can be applied.

sampler

Samples of one second length @ 44 kHz, mono (or about 5.5 sec @ 8 kHz mono or 0.5 sec @ 44 kHz stereo) can not just be used in a drum-machine style, but also be pitched and played as notes.
Recording sources for samples are the built-in microphone (iPhone only), a headset microphone (iPhone, iPod touch 2nd gen only) and nanoloop’s own sound output. The latter allows to create new samples from scratch, using up to five channels to create one single sound. Typical applications would be percussion (claps, snares etc), chords, arpeggio and microrhythmic / microtonal elements.

share

With nanoloop for iPhone, you can send your saved projects to other nanoloop users via e-mail. If nanoloop is installed on the recipient’s iPhone / iPod, she/he can simply tap on the file name in the received e-mail to start nanoloop and import the attached file so that it is available for editing. This makes collaboration very easy, multiple users around the world can work on the same project by simply e-mailing the file back and forth. This function may also be used to backup projects on a PC.
This does not mean that files are sent as audio, data are in the native nanoloop format which can be read only by nanoloop. An export function to wav or mp3 is planned for future versions.

ProLoop

Posted by Mikers On February - 16 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

ProLoop is a powerful and flexible loop player for professional musicians as well as hobbyists. Use it as a live electronic instrument by itself or as an addition to your other gear, or just play around with it and explore the possibilities!

It can play up to 6 loops simultaneously and besides changing the volume each loop can also be pitched/transposed, reversed, muted, panned, ring/frequency/phase-modulated by any other loop, and synchronized to a masterloop.

Pitch can be smoothly adjusted or quantized to a musical unit such as octaves, semitones or a custom division of an octave. Or put it in sync-mode to automagically fit the length of the choosen masterloop.

The sync offset can be adjusted to have loops sync at other positions than their start, and the sync can be turned off individually to allow the loops to have different lengths to create ever-changing layers of soundtextures.

There is also a Freeze FX that lets you temporarily “freeze” a loop with adjustable grain size and position.

You can control all the loops in real-time, and multi-touch will let you adjust several parameters simultaneously, for example crossfading by changing the volume of two loops at the same time.

ProLoop comes bundled with many loops by professional musicians that you can use and play around with, and demo sessions to get you started, but the real power comes by the fact that you can upload your own soundfiles to ProLoop through your web-browser!

Looptastic Producer 3

Posted by Mikers On February - 11 - 2010 ADD COMMENTS

Looptastic Producer, the flagship of Sound Trends’ line of mobile music-production apps, is now more expressive, thanks to a flexible new mixer and effects. The three mixer zones now expand on the fly to fit the loops you add, facilitating custom cueing and submixes. Performers can now mute or maximize each loop with a single tap on its fader. And each zone can now be switched in or out of the effects loop with a tap, adding variety and motion to the mix.

A new “scratch strip” above the faders shows the waveform of the last loop touched; tapping anywhere on the waveform retriggers the sound from that point. In looping mode, the sound then continues from the correct point in the recording: Scratch without screwing up! Turn off looping mode, and the sound plays only while your finger is down — excellent for deconstructing speech and triggering sound effects. Tap the side of the screen and the new tempo slider glides out; Looptastic changes the tempo without changing the pitch.

Five new effects join the four existing filters (low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, and notch) on the X-Y effects screen:

  • Gate — creates a rhythmic pulsing effect ideal for chopping up vocals. Vertical movements on the touchpad control how long the gate stays open; horizontal movements control the number of pulses per second.
  • Bit-crusher — adds the crunchy distortion of old video games. Vertical movements control bit depth, adding noise and distortion; horizontal movements control the sampling rate, adding metallic artifacts.
  • Flanger — adds a tunnel-like resonance that’s ideal for animating percussion or pads. Vertical movements control feedback, imparting a metallic whine; horizontal movements control delay, sweeping the pitch of the resonance.
  • Glitchy Repeater — captures and repeats brief segments of sound for a stuttering effect. Vertical movements control the number of repeats; horizontal movements control the duration of the segment.
  • Delay — adds rhythmic echoes to make a part stand out or “swing.” Vertical movements control feedback (number of echoes); horizontal movements control the length of each echo. Analog-style interpolation creates dub-style pitch-shifting as you move your finger.

You can even combine the effects for more dramatic textures. The new Effect Hold button locks in the last settings, allowing the performer to, for example, swap in a distorted drum groove or echoed sound bite and then get back to mixing.

Sound Trends President Aaron Higgins remarks, “Looptastic 3 incorporates some of our customers’ most creative suggestions, implemented in a way that makes the app even easier to use. In light of all the new features, we raised the price 50 percent, but as a thank-you to our supporters, we’re allowing current Looptastic Producer owners to upgrade for free.”
