I started playing with this app on Saturday and I struggled to put it down. Don’t ask me why though. I just think it’s amazing. It’s one of those somewhat rare apps that just grabs your attention, or at least it grabs mine anyway.
It reminds me in many ways of the apps from the Strange Agency. In fact, it reminds me of their apps a lot. So that’ll probably give you an idea as to whether or not it’s the kind of thing you might like.
Anyway, to help you make up your mind here’s a video:
For a $3.99 app I’m not sure you can get much better than this. I think I’m going to be playing with this for a very long time.
What’s new in DFX – Digital Multi-FX? Here’s what they have to say …
“We are happy to announce DFX version 2.0 with a freshly added Midi Engine. You can now plug any Midi controller or keyboard, relax and watch DFX reacting to the push of a fader or the turning of a rotary button. Multiple controllers, multiple gestures are welcome. We have covered pretty much much any control in DFX. Feels nice doesn’t it?
One more thing, there is also a new Flute generator that we are quite proud of ;^)
The Fingerlab Team.”
- MIDI Input selection (hardware, virtual, network session)
- MIDI channel selection (1 to 16 or Omni)
- MIDI LEARN mode : plug you midi device in and control DFX
- New “Flute” Generator
- Fixed some minor UI issues
- Fixed some launching freezes with older ipad models
Here’s what’s new in Quincy Lite:
“In version 1.1.0 we have several UI changes. The main toolbars for play, edit and draw modes have been updated with new graphics and highlighting labels plus the color coding of transport UI elements has been refactored to better indicate state. The BPM indicator is now animated in a metronome style and the main draw pattern view has been inverted for better contrast. There were also some moves to keep the iOS version of Quincy in line with the Mac OS version and to present a more logical association as well. The ‘use syllables’ switch has been moved to the settings window and audio instruments were moved to the module settings window. The latter now fill the entire window instead of using the system picker. Tool slider view animations have been refactored for a snappier feel and the scope of undoable parameters has been widened.
There were also some bugfixes. Notably stepping through a composition now works immediately with newly opened documents. Also, color changes are now immediately refected in the live draw cursor. Also, module setting headers for Voices and Rhythm now appear consistently.”
