Beatsurfing arrives

BEATSURFING – THE ORGANIC MIDI CONTROLLER BUILDER

It allows you to draw a 3-dimensional controller and use it in two different and complementary ways. You can tap it like you would with your regular MPC or any other beatmaking device, but the best and most innovative use you can make of it is definitely by surfing your fingers along routes, colliding with objects, triggering samples or effects. It’s all about movement, and bringing back this intuitive way to make music.

It can control any MIDI-enabled device (Software, Hardware, or even selected iPad apps through Virtual MIDI), features a very intuitive in-app editing system and integrates seemlessly in any existing Studio or Live setup.

Objects Behaviours can be set to link objects together and multiply the available commands on the surface of the iPad.

It’s been developed by Herrmutt Lobby & Yaniv De Ridder.

It’s based on concepts Herrmutt Lobby developed for Hardware MIDI controllers (like the Beatfader and the MIDI scratch devices).

Released by VLEK.

  • Draw your own controller
  • Work with the Controller you need, not the one you were given. Simply draw it on the screen with lines, polygons, circles and faders. Size, color, orientation and 3-Dimensional location are all yours to choose.
  • Surf!
  • Use the full potential of the iPad touchscreen: You can tap on the screen, but you better add the Surfing to your production and performance skills to integrate more of that human feel in your music.
  • Link any MIDI device
  • Dj, VJ, Production softwares, Hardware devices, and even selected iPad apps: you can route BEATSURFING to anything that allows for MIDI.
  • Objects Behaviours
  • Each object of your controller can be set to control the others. It creates a system of objects that allow you to add much more to a controller than what meets the eye.
  • Intuitive In-App editing
  • Forget about separated editing software, lenghty changes and whatnot. You can swap between the EDIT and PLAY modes at the tap of a finger. All your objects even remain playable when they’re be re-arranged!

The app is priced at $11.99

Who are you? I am Sampler!


the simplest and most powerful sampler app ever!


i have no knobs,no technical terms but just only cute icons waiting for your tap and flick.

  • up to 10 sec sampling via mic
  • 4 sample banks
  • Lo-Fi effect
  • LFO for pitch : sine,saw,pulse,noise
  • envelope for amplitude : attack time,release time
  • delay : up to 2 sec , it can be also used for looper
  • keyboard : shake for ribbon controller mode which you can play forward or reverse your sample at your favorite speed
  • import wavs (mono,44.1khz,16bit) via the sharing folder on iTunes

aubit arrives

Not much info on this new app, but I do like the name. Here’s the overly brief description:

Colorful bits gravitate to each other creating ambient sound as they orbit around and collide. Made with openFrameworks(http://www.openframeworks.cc/)

And, it’s free!

Sounds made with Bitwiz

Here’s a couple of tracks made with Bitwiz:

Korg monotribe, and filtered BitWiz through a Korg Monotron Duo.

Thanks to Atoman for letting me post them.

TiltTone has arrived …

Sunday is a good day to have a look at a free synth isn’t it. So here’s one to try this afternoon.

It’s called TiltTone by maepLABO and here’s what they have to say about it:

TiltTone is a musical instrument app that allows you to play sounds by tilting your iPhone.

You can adjust quality of sound and save up to 25 different sounds.You can use this app with one or both hands.As you become skilled with this, you will learn to play without watching iPhone’s display.

TiltTone uses frequency modulation synthesis.The number of operators is two,and the modulator has a feedback system.The present version doesn’t have features to do LFO and tone envelope yet,but we will add them in a software update soon.

HOW TO PLAY

  • When you touch the display, TiltTone plays sounds.
  • When you tilt the iPhone, the pitch changes.When the display faces upward,the pitch is highest.The effective degree range can be set at either 90° or 180°.
  • When you touch the display with two or more points, the pitch becomes temporally fixed.

TUNABLE ITEMS

  • CONTINUOUS : Whether the pitch changes continuously or not.
  • DEGREE RANGE :Effective degree range to tilt.
  • OCTAVE RANGE :Effective octave range.If DEGREE RANGE is 90,I recommend that an octave range is two or less,and if DEGREE *RANGE is 180,I recommend three or less.
  • ATTACK TIME : Time for sound standing up.(ms)
  • DECAY TIME : Length of time it takes for a note to return to default volume.
  • SUSTAIN LEVEL : Level of volume set as default.
  • RELEASE TIME : Time sound takes to die away after releasing display from fingertips.
  • CARRIER : The wave forms of carrier in frequency modulation.(Sine, Saw, Triangle, Pulse)
  • MODULATOR : The wave forms of modulator in frequency modulation.(Sine, Saw, Triangle, Pulse)
  • MODULATION FREQ RATIO : The Ratio between frequency of the modulator and that of the carrier.
  • MODULATION INDEX : Modulation index.
  • MODULATION FEEDBACK : Level of feedback at modulator.
  • FILTER TYPE : Type of filter.(HighPass, LowPass, BandPass)
  • FILTER FREQ : Crossover frequency of filter.
  • FILTER Q : Q-value of filter.
  • LEVEL : Level of reverberation.
  • LIVENESS : Level of reverberation feedback.
  • CROSSOVER FREQ : Crossover frequency of reverberation.
  • HF DAMPING : Level of damping at the frequencies above CROSSOVER FREQ.
  • DELAY TIME : Delay time of echo.
  • ECHO LEVEL : Level of echo.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

  • iPhone4,4S,iPad2 (Other devices can’t run this app.)
  • iOS5

Accelerometer Frequency Modulation (Shapesynth + Sphero)

You have to admit that this looks really amazing! Any other developers looking at Sphero as a controller?
