touchAble 1.2 is out, so here’s what’s new:
The Control elements on the FX8 & FX32 View now switch their behavior & style depending on the parameter they control. Possible styles are: Toggle, Multitoggle, Fader & centered Fader.
This will work with Lives devices & all M4L Devices.
Added ‘Snap’ mode:
You can activate the Snap mode per device with the ‘snap’ button in the Menu to the right.
If enabled, the control elements will snap back to their original value once you lift your finger.
To change the original value of the parameters: disable Snap mode – tweak the device to your needs and enable Snap mode again to jump back to these values at the end of your touches.
Added XY Pad module:
Up to 4 Dots at once – each with their own X, Y & Z Parameters. Choose the dots X, Y & Z Parameters from All of Lives Mixer & Device.
Easy parameter assignments through the config menu.
Set direction & force of gravity and bouncing mode individually for each dot.
Record the dots movements – loop, reverse or cut them till they fit your needs.
Play them back as automations – quantized and in complete sync with Ableton Live.
Save automations and parameter assignments to the database within touchAble and exchange them with other iPads and Users via iTunes.
Save snapshots of the dots positions:
Hold, Stop & Morphing mode
Set morphing length & which of the are dots affected by snapshots.
New optional settings:
Added Relative Fader mode for devices
Added possibility to disable scene launch buttons.
Added OneTap Recording:
Newly recorded clips will automatically be of the same length as the currently set Launch Quantization. This enables you to tap on an empty slot once to start recording and have it loop automatically after the set amount of time.
NodeBeat – iOS Music Sequencer from AffinityBlue on Vimeo.
This app reminds me a lot of Aura Flux, but it does seem quite interesting as well. This is what Synthtopia has to say:
NodeBeat is an experimental node-based audio sequencer and generative music application for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.
NodeBeat is designed to let you create a variety of rhythmic sequences and ambient melodies in an intuitive fashion.
It’s scheduled for release April 25th. Not too long to wait then!
Excellent news. Molten Drum machine (which was already a superb drum machine app) now supports:
- Improved CoreMIDI configuration
- Added virtual MIDI ports for interoperability with other multitasking apps
- Added background audio
I’m hoping that more and more apps will go down this route and support CoreMIDI for multitasking. Any other developers going to support this soon?
Thanks to BeatmakerTV for the tweet.
App priced at $0.99.
