What’s coming in Gliss 1.2

Some really good stuff coming up in Gliss 1.2:

  • Sample Sets: A new instrument, which takes a list of samples and puts them on the y axis. So instead of controlling the frequency, multiple samples can be played by one colour. This can be used to create beats and rhythms, because you can have one drum set on one colour. Currently samples are played back in full length, although they are represented only by one dot.
  • New Scheduler. Probably the most drastic change in gliss. The new scheduler is much more accurate and makes it possible to set the tempo by BPM and different types of meters.
  • Back to original sequence. With a double tap on the randomization button, you can restore the original sequence. In a similar way you can get back to a default tempo, which can be set in the preferences, by double tapping the tempo button.
  • Recording. You can now record your perfromance. Double tap on the playback mode button to start recording.
  • Sequence organisation. Tap on the sequence number and you get a table with all sequences of the project. Here you can also change the position of a sequence, duplicate or delete it.
  • Change direction but keep tempo. When you lock the tempo, you can now still change the direction.
  • Slightly re-designed user interface.
  • Upload zip files of samples.
All looks great to me. I love to have new things to look forward to. Also, the developers say that it is likely to be an iPad universal binary which is excellent news.
