I thought I’d write about Microbe today. Microbe was the first piece of software I bought from Chocopoolp, and I think the first thing that was released from there. It is a fantastic application for jotting down ideas quickly. It is really about making electronic music, but it can be adapted to do interesting things…
What’s in Microbe?
– 2 Mono synths
– Drum machine
– X-Y Pad
– Export to Bhajis Loops (for when you want to expand your ideas)
– Render to WAV!
How do I use Microbe?
Usually I use microbe when I want to play around for a minute or two with ideas and not get hung up on being technical and having to worry about settings and the like. That’s a nice thing about Microbe. Things are simple and straightforward. I like that. When something is done in Microbe it can then be moved out into Bhajis Loops, or if that’s really it it can stay there and be rendered to a wav file right on your device.
If it needs to get more attention then it can be exported to Bhajis and from there you can do almost anything with it.
