Poly synth

Posted by Mikers On January - 24 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

It aint’ pretty, but this cheap Russian built sound maker could make a worthy addition to your collection of quirky music apps….

mzl.amrdnpwa.480x480-75A microtonal capable distortion synthesizer with an 11-string bass guitar layout with extremely low latency.
This App gives you:
Too much octave range
The ability to play totally out of tune
A small amount of help on playing in key
A somewhat ugly interface
A small set of features that you must combine to make variety.
No bitmapped images to make you drool over the eye candy
Not a font anywhere – other than a few begrudgingly penciled in note names
The settings (bottom buttons):
- Overall Volume
- Reverb
- Distortion
- Octave Harmonics
- FM Distortion
- Delay
- Pitch Rounding / Optional Frets
- Polyphony Adjustment
- Preset and Lock(slide right to un-lock AS FIRST STEP!)

Mobile Music Sequencer = WOW

Posted by Mikers On January - 24 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

Yammmy have coming out swinging in 2013 with this great all-in-one music creation station for iPad. It’s accessible for all levels of musicianship, but also offer some deep editing features too. Haven’t downloaded it yet, but it’s on my shopping list this week….

mzl.uqjdeqnz.480x480-75Yamaha’s new Mobile Music Sequencer enables composers to combine a range of phrase patterns and create musical compositions intuitively, following the flow of composition, from phrases to sections and from sections to songs.
Wherever you are, you can now sketch the outline of a composition. In addition, you can use the ingredients to delicately craft songs on a Yamaha synthesizer, or in Steinberg Cubase.

First, try loading the demo song (a number of demo songs are provided). Tap on the settings icon in the top right of the screen, select [Digital Sympathy] from the Presets under the File tab, and press the Load button to read in the song.

Create a song right away as follows:

Step 1-Create phrases
You can choose from a rich selection of 382 preset phrases (the phrase is the smallest unit in the structure of a composition). Under Phrase in the View screen, tap on a cell in which no setting has been made, then tap on the Select button on the left. To listen to a preset phrase, tap on its name. It is also possible to use real-time recordings made using the keyboard within an application, or user phrases which have been created using piano roll input. Using the powerful Loop Remix function, it is possible to divide selected phrases at specified intervals and then order them automatically insert rolls or breaks, and thus rework them into new phrases.

Step 2-Create sections
Combine multiple phrases together to create a section. Phrases are arranged in a vertical block and playback is turned on and off using the Section button at the bottom of the screen. The phrases can be managed as a single unit.
By specifying codes for individual sections, you can easily create variations. Using the Create command you can also create a succession of new sections based on the phrase that is currently being played back, which allows production to proceed smoothly.

Step 3-Create Songs
Put together complete songs by pasting together sections. This is easily accomplished by touching the Section area and then just dragging and dropping sections into the data area. Naturally, you can also input sections by recording in real time or by using the piano roll screen.

• Built-in software synth with 92 high-quality sounds (including 9 types of drumkit) enables faithful rendering of sequence patterns.
• Sound editing using filters, EG, and other effects
• Mixer function for each part
• Effects including reverb, chorus, and variations
• Additional phrases and sounds
Four additional voice and phrase datapacks can be purchased directly using the application. (Dance Pop, Electronic, Hip Hop, R&B)
• File export
As well as a function for outputting standard general-purpose MIDI files, the application also includes a function for exporting files in an even easier-to-use format designed for Yamaha synths, in which characteristic sounds are specified in advance. (MOTIF XF, S90XS/S70XS, MOX6/MOX8, and MOTIF XS)
• Mix-down
Audio mix-down of a song or a phrase and conversion of the song or the phrase to an audio file can be performed in real time.
• Compatibility with SoundCloud
Audio files can be made compatible with SoundCloud and uploaded.
