Here’s what’s new with SoundFont Pro:
SoundFont Pro has gone Multi-timbral with a bang. Here are the features of this major update:
- Multi-timbral, Multi-layered and Multi-zonal Arrangements
- SoundFont Pro now introduces the concept of arrangements, much like how you set up arrangements on an Arranger keyboard.
- You can divide your keyboard in up to 4 distinct zones using the flexible range control.
- Each zone can have up to two presets layered from any soundfont of your choosing. This means that overall, you can, if you so desire, select and play 8 presets from 8 different soundfonts simultaneously!
- Each zone can receive input from the same or a different MIDI channel.
- You can also set the Relative Volume and Dry/Wet ratio of each preset individually.
- For each preset, you can set the octave shift in the range of +-5 octaves.
- At any time, you can turn on a HUD display of the current arrangement and see the zone ranges, assigned presets, octave shifts and MIDI channels.
A Pro Quality Metronome & Count-in feature is included with the following features:
- Turn sound on or off
- Turn visual indicator on or off
- Tempo and Tap Tempo
- Multiple Time signatures including 2/4, 3/4, 4/4, 5/4, 6/8, 7/8, 9/8, 12/8
- Individual Sounds for Accent and Non-Accent Beats
- Volume controls for Accent and Non-Accent Beats
Modulator Grid Enhancements:
- Lock Unlock Position
- Double Tap to return to 0,0 position
I thought I’d write about a few things that I’m looking forward to this year and that I expect you’ll be looking forward to as well. I’m not sure at this stage how many of these posts I’ll do, but if I get to 14 that’ll be about it I expect.
So, for the first of these, something I’m sure that the vast majority of iOS music makers are looking forward to, Audiobus 2 of course!
We’ve seen videos, we’ve seen screenshots and we’ve heard some of the features that are coming to Audiobus 2, and it sounds and looks amazing.
I think that one of the most interesting things will be seeing how people share their workflows on social media networks. Preset or patch sharing (I’m still most fond of bus routes) will make Audiobus 2 really powerful as I’m always amazed by how people use and combine their music making apps in ways I haven’t thought of before.
So it’s a big one to look forward to and I’m sure it’ll be great when it arrives. I’m especially looking forward to finding out about the features that they haven’t made public so far. I’m always curious about that kind of thing.
So here’s to Audiobus 2 in 2014. Definitely one to look forward to.
Another small demonstration of the UL1uloop microsampler/looper. This time we go with an external sound source and play with it!
Newly released remote control for Android and iOS is amazing. Running on an old HTC Evo 3D controlling FL Studio performance mode.
Track is Complextron by neucleon, included with FL Studio 11.04.
