Using AmpKit (but perhaps not as it was meant)

I’ve been using copy paste a lot lately and I remember seeing a twitter conversation a week or so ago on using AmpKit as an effects processor for clips so I thought I’d give it a try using a drum pattern from MoDrum.

The results? Not bad at all really. You can have a lot of fun making interesting effects chains on your loop using AmpKit. Both the number of effects and the chaining gives loads of options.

I only brought in a loop, but I can see that bringing in longer audio clips could be really useful and give you a lot of scope for processing audio. So this is definitely something I’m going to be using a lot more from now on.

What apps am I playing with right now?

I mentioned a while back that I’d give you a quick run down of what I’m playing with at the moment as I’ve been meaning to do this for a while and a few people have asked as well.

  • Looptastic Producer and HD: Been moving stuff between these two as I make loops for a possible live set
  • bleep!BOX (on iPhone and iPad): Just excellent for lots of little mono sequence loops
  • Xenon: Again, for making loops to fit together
  • iSequence HD: I’ve been using this for a drum track
  • MoDrum: Fun for patterms
  • DopplerPad: Still love this app, but it could do with an update

On the more experimental front:

  • RJDJ: Using a variety of scenes at odd times. Usually whilst travelling
  • Tondo: Still getting my head around this app
