TNR-e

Posted by Mikers On December - 19 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480The TENORI-ON enables people to create music intuitively and without any specialized knowledge about music using a 16 x 16 matrix button pad, and now there is the new TNR-e app that has new tones that capture the essence of dub step, progressive house/EDM, electro and other types of music not previously available.

Now you can access DubstKit and other new drum-pad tones, get fat bass tones like BriteBas and Helium, and dazzling tones of DubBAXX, Voxdance, VoodooWh, which were not previously available on the TENORI-ON, which makes this app a perfect place to start with your next multi-track project.

Using the iOS7 Inter-App Audio feature, you can control the sound sources of other compatible apps from the TNR-e, which gives you a wider range of sounds to choose from.

And only the TNR-e comes with several new attractive features and 2 master effect systems. Use the XY pad interface to apply the FILTER and six other types of effects to make your music come alive!

Use ISOLATOR and FILTER to create breaks, then, use the LOOPER to create a long trigger effect and a strong hook. EDM can be used to easily develop the song as well. Get the most out of live performances through improvisation.

SoundCloud is a hassle-free way to share data.

[About the input interface]
You can create music intuitively by “”placing”” sounds on the 16 x 16 button grid that are performed musically and visually.
On the 16 x 16 grid, time is represented horizontally, while the pitch is represented vertically.
Both rythm and melody are combined on the grid to create music.
When the sound is played, the buttons flash which also provides a stimulating visual performance.

Up to 16 tones can be played simultaneously (16 layers), and it can store up to 16 song patterns in memory (16 blocks), which can be activated during a performance in real time to produce a rich variety of musical expressions.

There are six different performance modes for each layer:
– Basic score mode: time is on the horizontal axis and pitch is on the vertical axis
– Random mode: Sounds are played in the order that they were entered, and rotating the device produces a cascade of changing melodies and rythms for your enjoyment
– Draw mode: Sounds are played in response to dragging your finger on the grid, like drawing a picture
– Bounce mode: Sounds are produced when the lights fall, just like a bouncing ball
– Push mode: Continuously change the tones as you perform
– Solo mode: Easily change the speed and pitch to play as a soloist

You can use these two tools together to create great music.

[Features]
– Newly designed tones suitable to dance music
– 253 different tone types perfect for electronic music
– 2 master effect systems (seven types: FILTER, DICIMATOR, DELAY, FLANGER, NOISE, LOOPER, ISOLATOR, LOOPER)
– New interface that even beginners can understand easily
– Inter-App Audio compatible
– AudioBus compatible
– Guide feature that explains button operations
– Multi-session feature for multiple players
– Audio recording
– User Voice function
– Yamaha Server for file sharing
– SoundCloud upload feature

Spectre Modular Midi Sequencer

Posted by Mikers On October - 29 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480The Spectre Midi Sequencer is a modular sequencing iPad app.

The modules used in this app are basic building blocks for generating sequences. The sequences can range from simple to complex in a very intuitive fashion.

The Spectre Midi Sequencer is a modular sequencing iPad app. This app is built to emulate the way analog modular synthesizer sequencing systems operate. The modules used in this app are basic building blocks for generating sequences. The sequences can range from simple to complex in a very intuitive fashion. The main feature of this app that allows for creative sequences is the virtual “CV” and “GATE” Features. In this app, CV refers to the pitch or note and GATE refers to the actual triggering of a note. When the CV and GATE are running on patterns independent from each other and are combined at the output, magic happens.
The basic components of this app are: 4 sequencers, 2 clock dividers, 2 sequential switches, 2 logic modules and one output module which is used to generate midi notes. I will go into detail on each component, but a Google search may prime you before reading the rest of the manual. Like real modular synthesizers, they are connected with patch cables between components. The cables can be added, removed and arranged in any way you can think of.

Cotracks

Posted by Mikers On October - 17 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480Cotracks is a collaborative music studio for teamwork on a single iPad. With Cotracks you can create multiple layers of loops and phrases using multiple instruments. Cotracks is designed to maintain your creative flow and is always ready to capture your ideas, regardless whether you are flying solo or collaborating with others.

Collaboration is where Cotracks really stands out. Everyone in your session has the ability to play and record at will without disrupting or being disrupted by the workflow of others. This lets you lay down the foundation of a tune within minutes and makes Cotracks the perfect and inspiring tool for brainstorming new ideas within a group.

The loops you create may be exported as separate audio clips or as a mixdown audio clip which you may then import and use in any audio software supporting the common wave audio format.

DESIGNED FOR VARYING NUMBER OF USERS

You can start off creating music in a single user mode. Later when your friend decides to join in, you switch to a two user mode. The interface layout will adjust enabling convenient access to the application from both sides of the table. Whenever another friend happens to join you, the layout will adjust again enabling access from all four sides of the device, letting you team up with up to three friends for a super creative music session. Whenever one or more members leave the session, it is as easy as a single tap to switch back to the smaller team or to the single user mode, letting the remaining members continue from where the others left off.

DESIGNED FOR VARIABLY SKILLED USERS

Cotracks offers lots of fun at the same time for both novice and advanced musicians with the help of scale based keyboard, flexible quantize, sequence sharing and editing capabilities. For example, a novice musician may grab a copy of a complicated sequence played by a more experienced friend and edit the instrument, sound and effects, record modulation controllers over the sequence and tweak the various playback parameters including key and scale. Essentially creating something new and exiting without necessarily playing a single note. Cotracks is all about giving everybody the means to contribute, which takes the concept of music collaboration to a new level.

It’s like playing with a band, but this time you can record and play back your own parts, in perfect sync with others, and create the constituents for a great track at the same time. With Cotracks the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

“Cotracks is a brilliant concept and, on the whole, has been beautifully realised by Futucraft.” – MusicAppBlog.com

Looptical

Posted by Mikers On September - 22 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

screen568x568

Moo Cow Music have been quiet for awhile, and now I know why! They’ve been working on this comprehesive band-in-a-box music production app! Looks very interesting indeed.

Ever wanted a recording studio in the palm of your hand? Looptical is a complete music production solution for iPhone and iPod touch.
Record your musical ideas on the go and mix them into a finished track, or use them as the basis for a new project back at your studio. Create looped sections of music and combine them to form larger musical sections until you have a finished song. Going from an initial riff idea to full track is easy with Looptical. Then mix the track with comprehensive effects and fully automated mixer controls, or export the MIDI and component audio tracks to your DAW when back at the studio to take your song one step further.
PLAY INSTRUMENTS
– Play keys with a single or dual 128 key keyboard layout, complete with pitch/mod wheel.
– Use the Scale Keyboard to play scales effortlessly by sliding a finger up and down the screen.
– Strum your way through your own palette of chords with the Chord Guitar.
– Use the Latched Arpeggiator to turn simple chords into sequences of notes.
– Use Quantize to tidy up your performance, and Undo any mistakes.
GO FROM RIFF TO FULL SONG
– Songwriting in Looptical involves creating Loops: building blocks for a song that could be a one bar bassline, an 8 bar chorus, or a 100 bar indulgent guitar solo.
– Use the Loop Bank to combine, merge, repeat, and insert these Loops to form larger riffs, and ultimately a complete song.
– Use the Event List to perform mass edits of notes, such as tweaking velocity, quantize or transpose.
MIX THE TRACK
– Add and mix up to 24 stereo tracks with Looptical’s Mixer.
– Add up to 5 Insert effects (Overdrive, Bit Crusher, Compressor, EQ, Filter, Chorus/Flanger, Phaser, Trance Gate, Delay) to each track, and a single Reverb Send effect.
– All mixer and effect parameters are automated and changes are recorded directly into the song.
ADD VOCALS AND GUITARS
– Record vocals with the iPhone internal microphone or compatible audio interface and add your own effects with live monitoring.
– Control input with an intuitive preamp-style gain and noise gate.
INTERACT WITH OTHER APPS
– Record audio tracks directly from any Inter-App Audio (iOS7) Instrument app.
– Use Audiobus (requires purchase from third party) to send and receive live audio to other Audiobus-enabled apps.
MAKE YOUR OWN INSTRUMENTS
– If the 95 keyboard and 50 drum presets (including 600 individual drum hits) are not enough, create your own from scratch.
– Import samples via iTunes Shared Folder, from another iPhone music app via the clipboard, or resample the current song.
– Effortlessly create an entire new instrument from a single sample, or add further samples for a multi-sampled instrument.
– Edit your sample to trim, chop, loop, amplify, fade or reverse sections.
– Export your instrument to use again, or even share with others via the Looptical forum.
USE AN EXTERNAL KEYBOARD
– Plug in an iPhone-compatible MIDI keyboard and you can break out of the iPhone screen and compose using a full hardware piano keyboard.
– Play drum parts by assigning piano keys to each pad, or effortlessly noodle a solo by playing the Scale Piano from the major keys.
– Assign spare MIDI controllers such as Pan or Modulation to directly control automation parameters in Looptical insert effects.
