Another update for Genome is on the way. Here’s what’s coming in 1.1.2:
- Better visual feedback on patterns that are playing
- Fixed bug with ‘View Snap’ zoom mode that was causing view to jump around
- Added a ‘dead zone’ on zooming so zooming doesn’t occur immediately
- Added scrollbars for easier navigation
- Fixed Pattern Mini-map
- Fixed a serious bug with changing note lengths
- It is now possible to have notes that stretch past the end of the pattern without being cut off as soon as the pattern ends
- Fixed a bug on switching song steps that would kill all playing notes.
- Some under-the-hood changes to the way looping works (mainly for the above change)
- Notes that extend past the end of the pattern will no longer be broken into two notes (see pattern playback changes)
- Instead of just sending the ‘all notes off’ CC’s, it also sends actual note offs just in case.
- Updated MIDI Mobilizer library
- Background Mode changes. It’s now easier to do external clock sync while Genome is in the background. If Genome is not playing, it will wait in the background for 15 minutes unless you toggle the ‘background’ button in the settings (which will cause it to sleep immediately). If Genome is playing, it will run in the background until stopped.
- Added options for controlling Latency Compensation for MIDI Sync (sync-in and out)
iPulsaret is a granular synthesis. An awesome Granular Synthesizer able to generate a wide range of common and unusual effects: time/pitch shifting, time/pitch jittering, intricate textures, grain fountain/pulverizer, recording and manipulation of buffers, dynamic envelope shapes and many more. iPulsaret allows you to load from built-in sound samples, record audio directly with your iPad mic and/or add your own .WAV, .AIFF files via iTunes. A DropBox access is also available as the Sonoma AudioCopy / Paste feature. I really love the quality of the generated sound, the big x / y Pad which allows you to load 4 Snapshots (one for each corner). A must have for sound designers. A Killer App!
frauAngelico – drum synthesizer based on fraAngelico
sample based drum synthesizer with microsampling possibilities and step-sequencer!
- sample based polyphonic plaback (6 voices)
- 8 fully adjustable sounds for each preset that can be triggered by midi or by built in sequencer
- microsampling features to adjust the sound ( loop length, shift speed, start, cut)
- bitCrusher, pitchDown, softVolume
- sample rate knob
- step sequencer with record feature, tap tempo, pattern length and shuffle
- it can store 6 double-patterns (32 steps = 8 beats) in each preset
- 4 presets
- double pedal input 3.5mm stereo jack connector for shift and monome button
- various sample banks (TR-808, 8-BIT, BASIC)
That looks like it could get very interesting indeed.
Chordion’s new MIDI mode allows you to control other synthesizers using MIDI. Here we explain how to use Virtual MIDI to control Animoog with the keyboard and Magellan with the chord hexagons.
It looks like lots more people must want to get going with iPad music or this sort of thing wouldn’t come about.
