Pepp … it’s universal, it’s free, and it has arrived!

I was only talking about this just the other day, and now it’s here.

Pepp opens up the joy of electronic music making to everyone. Thanks to an intelligent rythm and harmony engine, no musical knowledge is needed. Pepp is immediate, intuitive and vastly musical by nature.

Make electronic music like there’s nothing to it! Pepp is very easy to use yet it can produce a vast range of sounds. Forget about boring factory sounds. Come up with your own mindbending loops in no time, store them in memory slots, mix them live and jam with your friends. Tweak all parameters to the extreme without destroying your original loops.

This twisted groovebox/arpeggiator/synthesizer lets you quickly forge original electronic music using sixteen sliders and a sixteen step sequencer. Instantly save and recall your ideas without missing a beat. With 160 memory slots you’re not likely to run out of storage.

Pepp can also be synced via MIDI, played live from a MIDI keyboard or sequenced from your favorite DAW. Naturally, all sliders can be mapped to midi controllers. Pepp is also integrated with Audiobus so you can use it with all of your audiobus compatible apps!

midimux (universal) arrives

midimux talks MIDI to your Mac – using the standard usb to lightning or 30 pin cable.
Finally.

With midimux, you are no longer forced to rely on wifi-packets or external hardware to communicate MIDI data between a Mac and an iOS Device.
It seamlessly integrates your iPad/iPhone into your studio. worry-free, reliable and at an ultra low-latency.
And it works with all apps that speak MIDI.

midimux lets you..

  • control iOS apps with hardware controllers that are connected to your Mac.
  • sequence and play iOS apps using a DAW running on your Mac.
  • control Mac applications or hardware connected to it, using Lemur, TouchOSC or any other app that uses MIDI.
  • use iOS apps to play and sequence hardware instruments that are connected to your Mac.
  • create virtual MIDI ports on the iPad/iPhone that can be mirrored to the Mac or other iDevices.
  • connect more than one iOS device to the Mac – and send MIDI data between them.

all this wired – via the simple usb to lightning/30 pin cable.

In short: midimux creates virtual copies of MIDI devices connected to the other si.

In long: If you have a MIDI device connected to your Mac, midimux will create a copy of it on the iDevice – and thus allowing other apps to talk to it directly. Any byte of MIDI received by the MIDI device on the Mac will be piped to and received on the virtual copy of that device on the iOS device – and is then usable by its apps.
Data sent out by apps to the virtual copy on the iOS device will be piped back via usb, and then sent to the real device on the Mac.

The same is true the other way around. If an app creates a virtual MIDI port (e.G. Animoog), midimux will create a copy of that port on the Mac, naming it ‘Animoog @ iPad’.

If an app does not create a virtual MIDI port, midimux always gives the possibility to create virtual ports manually. these can then be used by any apps on any of the iOS devices to pipe data to the Mac. or other iDevices. or both. and back. at the same time 😉

Features:

  • Creates Mirrors of all MIDI devices that are connected to the computer on the connected iOS devices.
  • Creates Mirrors of all MIDI devices that are connected to the iOS devices on the Mac.
  • Lets you create custom virtual Ports that can be used by both sides of the connection to communicate.
  • does it all via a wired usb connection – using the standard charge & sync cable.
  • works on all iDevices from iOS 5.

*** midimux currently only works with Mac ***

To work, a lightweight server app has to be installed on the Mac.
Download it from here: http://www.midimux.com
Or find it in this apps documents folder via iTunes file sharing.

midimux costs $9.99

QOTD: What sound would you love to re-create?

Not everyone wants to recreate a particular sound but it can be a good way to start to craft something or it can be a good way to learn how to use an app or instrument. So what’s the sound that you’re looking to recreate at the moment, or that’s eluded you so far?
