microSketch

Posted by Mikers On December - 9 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (9)MicroSketch is a music app for playing and experimenting with equal divisions of the octave. The division can be anything from 7 to 96. The app is polyphonic up to the capabilities of your device’s processor (typically 24 voices) and multi-timbral with 16 ‘instrumental’ timbres. The instruments are all fully synthesized (no samples!) using subtractive, additive, frequency modulation, the Karplus-Strong string model, VoSim, and granular synthesis techniques.

The keyboard can have a variable number of keys arranged in a square from 5 by 5 up to 15 by 15. The keyboard is isomorphic, with the horizontal and vertical interval set independently for each instrument. Other properties of the instruments can also be set independently, like the pan position, amplitude, and reverb mix amount. The bottom note
for each instrument can also be set. Each instrument can be set in ‘Sustain’ mode, where a
key touch turns a note on, and another key touch releases the note. For some instruments,
the ‘Sustain’ mode gives you a variation on that instrument.

A simple metronome is included.

KORG Module

screen480x480 (1)The best sounds, available to everyone. Announcing a new high-quality mobile sound module app for iPad!

Maintaining its position at the forefront of mobile music apps, KORG now offers you a new style of performance and production with Korg Module for iPad. Ideal for performance and music production, KORG Module is a high-quality sound module app for iPad that contains a sound library over 1 GB. If you have an external MIDI keyboard and an iPad, you can play studio-quality keyboard and grand piano sounds anywhere. You can also use the sounds of KORG Module for the KORG Gadget music production app.

*** Five dedicated sound engines containing powerful tone ***
KORG Module has five dedicated sound engines, providing a number of high-quality sounds that can be played back on your iPad using the “NATIVE ENGINE”. These engines feature technology that was developed for KORG’s historic line of workstations and synthesizers including: Acoustic Piano, Electric Piano, Clav, Organ, and Multi. Each display has carefully selected parameters, making it convenient and easy to adjust the sounds.

*** Welcome to a new mobile world, where your iPad and a MIDI keyboard is all you need for a complete setup ***
Just connect an external MIDI keyboard to your iPad and launch the app to transform your iPad into a high-quality sound module. It’s easy to set up and start playing immediately, whether you’re in your room, a practice studio, or performing live. KORG Module adopts an open hardware philosophy that allows connection to any MIDI keyboard. In addition to using a KORG MIDI keyboard such as the taktile, microKEY (25-key), or nanoKEY2, you can also use other manufacturer’s MIDI keyboards that can be connected to an iPad.

*** Mobile music production in tandem with KORG Gadget ***
You can also use the high-quality KORG Module sounds inside KORG Gadget, the mobile music production app. If you have KORG Module and KORG Gadget, the five tools Salzburg, Montreal, Alexandria, Firenze, and Glasgow are added inside, allowing access the same way as KORG Gadget. These five powerful gadgets will add even more variety to your music productions, raising your music to the next level. Whether for performance or for production, both of these apps deliver ultimate sound.

*** Convenient set list function with a PDF/image score viewer and music player ***
KORG Module provides functions you’ll find convenient in any environment. The set list function provides unified management of all the settings a player needs; it lets you recall the sounds in the ideal order, view music notation, or hear a practice song. The score viewer can load and display an image or PDF file; eliminating the need to carry along a printed music score. You can use the internal camera of your iPad to record and view hand-written memos. You can use the music player to select and play a song from the library of the Music app. Since there’s a tempo change function, you can slow down the tempo without changing the pitch.

*** Power-up even more with expansion sound libraries ***
While KORG Module provides a powerful collection of sounds even with its basic set, you can purchase expansion sound libraries to further extend its sonic scope. As the first round, we present two titles: the third-party mobile premium piano “Ivory Mobile Grand” from SYNTHOGY, and KORG’s own vintage electric piano sound set “Wurley Electric Piano.” Add sound libraries to enjoy an expanding world of mobile sound modules. The added sound libraries can be used with KORG Gadget as well.

Auxy

Posted by Mikers On November - 8 - 2014 1 COMMENT

screen480x480 (2)Complex user interfaces and a bewildering array of options can often get in the way of some simple good old fashion groove making. That’s the takeaway from this latest app, thanks to the clean UI and stripped back options that will have you making beats and hooks in no time, even if you’re new to the whole thing! Of course, Auxy is not a fully fledged customisable drum and synth workstation, but when all you want is something to whip up a quick groove, this is one app hard to look past.

Check out the video for an example of how quick and easy it can be….
