100% real-time audio – No samples. telePort is used to do live sequencing.
In this video nothing is really being done, it only shows the feedback of what was already looped, moments before filming it.
The melodic and harmonic (bass line) parts were played and looped with the piano. Directly on the Step Sequencer Page of the iPad a straight rhythm is altered and the changes looped to create a longer improvised beat structure.
Also on the iPad the Sub-Division and the Duration of the static Bass pulse is altered and looped to create the variation.
Some Filter sweeps, volume changes and effect sends are also looped using the iPads.
Finally – without performing the action somewhere hear able – it is shown how you can use multiple fingers to “drag-copy” patterns (with Pitch, Velocity and Duration) using the iPad…
The end loop is by no means static, rather a combination of four independent MIDI Control loops that can be stopped or altered, re-triggered or whatever. The instruments changed one by one, you name it 🙂
I just had an extra iPad over the weekend to finish multi-iPad support and figured it deserved a small video, rushed as it might be! 😉
This is using the upcoming prototype version 0.9.2 with its (also upcoming) bi-directional iPad Controller App. The release will definitely bring better quality videos!
