STROM

Posted by Mikers On October - 15 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (25)STROM is an incredibly fun sampler.

Record up to 10 seconds of audio, slice and sequence it, resample, create something entirely new!

The super responsive interface lets you sequence your source material in unique ways. You can always resample what you play, allowing you to quickly lift your audio into glitch heaven. You can edit slices while you are playing them – this lets you come up with really interesting grooves.

STROM’s sampler integrates nicely with other apps:
Copy audio from any app, using AudioShare and AudioCopy/Paste. Mangle them with STROM’s slice engine. Share your sliced samples with your friends! Copy them back to any other app for further processing.

STROM’s full power is unleashed if you connect your Elektron Analog Rytm drum computer to your iPad (and buy the Rytm In-App Purchase Upgrade):

For one, you can easily transfer samples to your Rytm using MIDI Sample Dump Standard. STROM can also send all slices as separate files. For example, load a vocal phrase, quickly slice it up, and send the individual “ooohs” and “aaahs” as one-shots. Slices are automatically numbered.

But the real juice is in STROM’s Rytm performance interface:

Designed to excel in the studio as well as on stage, STROM extends and augments your Analog Rytm.

Using the CTL-AL function, inspired by the legendary Machinedrum, you can tweak sounds on multiple tracks at once. For example, sweep the filter on all (or some) tracks. Or change the sample slot for all tracks (or less crazy, limit it to a few tracks of your choice). All sound and trig parameters, as well as track levels, are available to be tweaked with CTL-AL.

CTL-AL has UNDO, so you can instantly return to your previous drum kit settings.
You can also use CTL-AL to create parameter lock automation in your current pattern!

Intelligent Kit Randomizer:
It lets you squeeze the wildest sounds out of the Rytm. The Randomizer gives you detailed control over which tracks and parameters should be affected, and by how much. It isn’t really “random”, but uses your current Kit as the basis. You have intuitive and detailed control over whether to just shift the sound a little, or mangle everything completely insanely.

Then there’s the Pattern Generator:
It’s main deal is an intuitive interface for quickly creating rhythmic patterns.
Rhythms are programmed into the Rytm’s sequencer instantly.
Leveraging the musical Euclidean algorithm, it generates cyclic patterns that are not random, but follow a logic which is perceived by most humans as actual groove. You have quick and detailed control over what exactly it should generate.
For example, it couldn’t be easier to pop up an interesting closed/open hihat groove.
Or a kick / snare / tom-tom workout. Or a hand-clap break, just at the end of your loop.

In addition, there are special shift rotation tools which are super effective for creating syncopations and breaks.

There is no quicker, better and insaner way for live beat generation than the Rytm combined with STROM’s Pattern Generator, period.

Finally, the Kit and Pattern Pasteboard:
This gives you multiple copy & paste slots for Kits and Patterns. You can quickly capture the current rhythm or sound inside one of STROM’s four pasteboard slots, tweak everything wildly, and instantly pop the original data back to your drum machine. Incredibly powerful for playing out live.

With STROM, your Analog Rytm becomes supercharged.

(Rytm Upgrade is an In-App-Purchase. Elektron Analog Rytm is a hardware instrument which must be purchased separately. USB-Lightning Camera adapter is required for the MIDI connection)

Auto Sampler

Posted by Mikers On October - 29 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (15)Sample your voice, musical instruments, and ambient sound. Create a multi-timbral synth by combining samples from different instruments.

Auto Sampler combines pitch detection, sound sampling, and wavetable synthesis into easy to use app that runs on any iOS device with a microphone. Samples are automatically extracted from live audio through the microphone input (built-in or external). The pitch detector assigns a pitch to each sampled sound, which is displayed on a piano keyboard as it is captured.

A polyphonic multi-timbral wavetable synthesizer resamples and blends samples into a continuous palette of sound. The synth can be played with the built-in keyboard, from other apps, or remotely using standard MIDI controllers. Controls adjust blending, modulation, attack/decay, and other parameters.

A small string/woodwind orchestra constructed from the University of Iowa’s musical sample library is provided to get you started.

SampleTank gets all stringy

Posted by Mikers On August - 31 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

IK Multimedia, the leader in mobile music-creation apps and accessories for iOS devices is pleased to announce a new version of SampleTank, the premium virtual instrument and sound module for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The new version gives mobile musicians access to the world-class orchestral and choir sounds of Miroslav Philharmonik – Mobile Edition, plus adds sound-library management, so musicians can easily add, delete and re-download complete collections of instrument categories, as needed.

The Miroslav Philharmonik – Mobile Edition for the SampleTank mobile app is available as an in-app purchase, and is derived from the insanely popular Miroslav Philharmonik standalone app and DAW plug-in for Mac/PC that’s used in studios around the world. These famous orchestral instrument sounds and textures have been heard in hundreds of Hollywood movie scores, and in compositions from some of the top performing pros like Serj Tankian (System of a Down), J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Sean Kingston and Lana Del Rey, to name a few. Miroslav Philharmonik features instruments that were beautifully recorded at the Dvorák Symphony Hall in Prague by Miroslav Vitous with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. These sounds have a texture, warmth, and beauty that is considered “the standard”, and is unrivalled in the virtual instrument world.

The Miroslav Philharmonik – Mobile Edition for SampleTank includes 100 orchestral sounds and textures with multiple instrument performance styles, including 5 orchestral ensembles, 39 string instrument sounds (violin, viola, contrabass, cello and harp), 15 brass instrument sounds (trumpet, trombone, French horn and tuba), 12 woodwind instrument sounds (flute, bass flute, piccolo, clarinet, bass clarinet, oboe and bassoon), 4 vocal choir ensembles, 1 cathedral organ sound, 1 celesta sound set, 10 orchestral synth pads, and 13 orchestral percussion sounds.

The version 1.6 update of SampleTank for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch also gives musicians a sound-management feature that provides the ability to add or delete sound-library collections with a single click, thus freeing up space as needed on their device for recordings. If a user deletes a purchased library and later wishes to reinstall it, it can be easily accomplished via the in-app restore feature. The version 1.6 update of SampleTank also adds stunningly clear iPad Retina Display graphic support the newer iPad models. The Miroslav Philharmonik Mobile Edition – along with future downloadable sound collections – requires iOS 6 or later, although the app itself will still work fine with iOS 5.

SampleTank for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is a complete professional-quality virtual instrument and sound workstation that allows musicians to use a portable keyboard/MIDI controller like iRig KEYS, or any MIDI keyboard controller with a MIDI interface like iRig MIDI, to create and perform with studio-quality instruments and sounds on the go. SampleTank is also Audiobus compatible, so it can be used with other mobile recording and DAW applications like GarageBand, AmpliTube and VocaLive for creating music on the go, anytime and everywhere. SampleTank is compatible with iPhone 3GS or later, iPod touch 4G or later, and any iPad model.

Pricing and Availability
SampleTank 1.6 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is available now as a free update on the App Store. The Miroslav Philharmonik Collection is available as an in-app purchase for $19.99/€17.99. Additional instrument collections will also be available soon via in-app purchase.
