screen480x480 (22)SidTracker64 is the ultimate chiptune production package tool for the iPad. It emulates the SID sound chip from the dominating home computer of the 80s – The Commodore 64.

Get started immediately with the bundled songs and sounds in various styles, from old skool bleeps n blips to new school with multi speed and advanced table editing. Explore, remix and make new songs based on the old classic c64 game tracks “Commando” by Rob Hubbard or “Blood Money” by Fredrik Segerfalk, and the brand new youtube remix hit of the “True Survivor” Kung Fury soundtrack, all included in the app.

SidTracker64 is a retro-style music creation tool and synthesizer combined with modern features such as midi keyboard and controller input, Audiobus 2 and Inter App Audio for recording in your favourite DAW-app. Midi clock in lets you sync to other apps and hardware drum machines and synthesizers, such as the Elektron Analog Four.

SidTracker 64 can be used for live looping, making complete songs, and the minimum latency makes it suitable for live use. Export your music to Dropbox and e-mail as audio or .sid and even .prg files which you can run on a real Commodore 64.

Editing is based on hands on touch interaction or midi input instead of the hardcore style of direct data editing. Record live to a metronome or input notes step-style. Real SID-composing has never been simpler and more fun!

Chordana Composer

Posted by Mikers On February - 14 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen640x640An easy way to create your own original tunes!

Chordana Composer makes it easy for you to write your own tunes, even if you don’t know how to compose music.
You can enter a motif (two-bar melody) using your choice of 3 input modes. There’s no need to enter the melody for the entire tune.
You just enter one motif and Chordana Composer automatically creates a whole tune, so you don’t have to spend ages composing the music.

Product Features

1. Three ways to enter your motif (2-bar melody)

A melody that comes to you in the middle of an ordinary day…
Have you ever thought: “This would make a really great tune.
But I need to know how to compose, and it’s no good if I can’t read music. And that all takes time to learn”?
Chordana Composer will take care of all those concerns.
Just enter 2 bars of the motif you thought of.
Chordana Composer will automatically make it into an entire tune.
You can choose from 3 types of input method.
In “Keyboard input mode” you use a virtual keyboard, in “Notation input mode, you paste the notes into a sheet of music, and in “Microphone input mode”, you just sing the motif into the microphone.

2. Automatic composition by choosing “Genre” and “Concept”

Once you’ve entered the melody using one of the modes above, you’re ready for automatic composition.
Choose whichever combination of “Genre”, “Concept”, “Range of melody movement” and “Level of melody tension” creates a tune that best matches what you’ve imagined.

3. Your own editing using the Hints function
In Notation input mode, you can edit the the created melody yourself.
If you enable the Hints function when you’re editing the tune, the notation is color coded as a reference for your edits (notes that match the chord, notes in the same scale, notes that increase the tension and other notes you need to be aware of).

【Operating requirements】
iPhone 5, iPhone5c, iPhone5s, iPhone6, iPhone6 Plus
iPod touch (5th generation)
※ iOS8 or later required.
It’s also easy to share finished tunes.

screen480x480 (3)Figooroo is a simple yet powerful editor for Figure songs. It’s able to import, modify and export .figure files. It doesn’t produce sound, but it allows you to:

• open up to 4* songs at once
• copy instruments, patterns, tweaks (defaults & motions), mixer levels between songs
• join songs together
• shift songs with or without wrapping
• resize songs by trimming/repeating bars or shrinking/stretching them
• convert rhythms to notes
• email songs or open them in other apps at any time

*There are 2 slots (A & B) with each one able to hold 2 songs.

By switching from one slot to another and alternating between shift, resize, copy and join, you can combine songs in many ways.

Converting rhythms is a very useful function allowing you to alternate between different rhythms in the same song and also slowdown/speed-up a song keeping the rhythm intact.

8 bar songs are too short for you? In Figure you can simulate a 16 bar song by halving the tempo, but the rhythms are also slowed down, making them more or less useless. Now, with Figoroo you can take two 8 bar songs recorded at normal tempo (even with different rhythms), resize each of them to 4 bars and join them together. All you have to do is open the new song in Figure and halve its tempo.

Wanna record those perfect notes in Figure, but the song is too long and you have to wait yet another 30 seconds for another chance? Why not open the song in Figooroo, split it into pieces, open a piece in Figure, record the notes and then go back to Figooroo to join the pieces together.

Recording really really fast arpeggios is not easy in Figure, but Figooroo can help you achieve that. Record a song in Figure and open it in Figooroo to shrink it to fewer bars, thus increasing its playback speed.

You can also loop certain sections of the song and do many other things that you’ll discover along the way.
