November 14th 2008: BeatMaker 1.3 update to be released soon
During the past months, Intua has been working very hard to bring a new BeatMaker update that would go much further than the latest 1.0.2 version. Today, Intua is happy to announce the feature listing of the upcoming 1.3 update, which should hit the App Store very soon from now. This update will be free for current BeatMaker owners.
Here is a quick listing of what you will see in this new version:
- New step sequencer
- Patterns can now be up to 4 bars long
- Step resolution: patterns can now be edited with a resolution of up to 1/64T, making possible the creation of more complex and richer patterns.
- Two new editors: Pitch and Pan editing by steps. The pitch editor brings you the capability to compose complete melodies from just one sample, as you would do with a synthesizer or keyboard sampler.
- New pattern preview bar for easy lookup and navigation
- Improved song sequencer:
- Each pattern placed on the timeline can now be resized
- Insert and remove bars on the timeline
- Zoom In and Out for faster navigation and editing
- Dynamic access bar to quickly go to different song parts
- Audio recording: record samples directly from the iPhone built-in microphone or headset (also works on iPod Touch 2nd generation with headset). With the wave editor, select the start and stop position and automatically assign your new recording to pads.
- Record sounds anywhere and use them instantly in your composition !
- Whole new pad edition screen for quicker and easier access to pad settings
- Improved wave editor with zooming capabilitiesNew Cross Controller allows you to change live multiple effects and sound parameters. Choose any combination of sample and effect parameters available in BeatMaker and manipulate them live in quick or full screen mode
- New Moog-like filter effect with Low-pass, High-pass, Band-pass, frequency and resonance support.
- Improved Delay effect with dotted and triplet rhythm support
- Signature support: change your song signature to 3/4, 4/4, 5/4 or 6/4
- Interface rotates automatically depending on the device horizontal position
And much more…
What I was hoping for was some form of integration with Noise IO synth, but perhaps that’s in the ‘and much more’. I can hope.
