Video: Synced iOS Performance MUSIK APP MANUFAKTUR Superbooth 16

Video description:

“An alliance of music app developers called Musik App Manufaktur had a very nice performance with iOS apps here at Superbooth 16. They’re clearly showing that mobile app music is not just something fun to play around with while you’re waiting for the bus. No, these are highly capable of high performance stuff, also controlling modulars and syncing over Ableton link. Good stuff.”

modstep 1.0.2.5 is bigger than you might think

I have to say that I’ve been really impressed with the level of activity that the team have put into updating modstep. This is the 3rd update since this app launched in late December last year. Here’s what’s in 1.0.2.5, and it’s more than I expected.

New Features:

  • CC behavior changed: While Mod All is off, only the selected CC will be modulateable, all others remain untouched or play there recorded modulation. When Mod All is engaged, 8 CCs per X/Y-Pad can be modulated and recorded at the same time.
  • Added „All Inputs“ option to Tracks’ MIDI Input Settings
  • „All Inputs“ is the default for new Tracks
  • Added manual link
  • Added Track setup label for IAA Midi
  • Enhancements for IAA loading, reloading and deleting

New Templates:

  • Roland A-01
  • Korg minilogue
  • Roland TR-8
  • Waldorf Streichfett
  • Meeblip anode
  • Meeblip anode LE

Updated with mappings for the Pads:

  • Korg Volca Sample
  • Korg Volca Beats

New Sample Kits:
Tonal Kits

Bugfixes

  • Pressing AudioShare without a sample or folder selected could crash
  • Sample Start/End and One Shot will be saved correctly
  • “New Kit Name“ was displayed when new Template was created
  • faders were gone when loading IAAs in Session View
  • a crash could happen when switching quickly between Scenes/Clips
  • fixed channel order when using studiomux
  • Autoload IAAs setting wouldn’t change status
  • external MIDI could create hanging notes
  • crackles when using studiomux could appear
  • fixed a crash that would happen when “15” was selected in the Step Shifter
  • modstep won’t hijack the Ableton Link session tempo anymore
  • several small fixes and enhancements

modstep is amazing, but version 1.0.2 is even more amazing

Sometimes you find an app that just does it all and is amazing, but when it gets better and better and better you just have no choice but to jump up and down and scream about how good this app is.

modstep is just such and app! In version 1.0.2 here’s what they’ve done …

New features:

  • audiobus support: added 8 audiobus output channels
  • AudioShare export and recording of all tracks (hit the new tapedeck button to record all tracks with internal instruments or IAAs, the files can be found in the /Recordings/ folder and exported to AudioShare or the internal Sampler via the file browser). The recordings are quantized to the current clip quantization.
  • improved Reverb
  • massively lower CPU usage – especially older iPads will run a lot more tracks now.
  • iPad 1 support is back (unfortunately it’s getting harder and harder to keep it that way!)
  • new parameter on Sampler ‘One Shot’ that disables the ADSR completely
  • Clips, Scenes and Arm, Mute, Solo, Volumes per Track are now MIDI mappable to external controllers.
  • Tempo Up/Down and Nudge are now MIDI mappable.
  • CPU meter is much more accurate now and only monitors the audio-thread.
  • Tracks will now correctly remember their MIDI setup and restore it upon load.
  • IAA Apps will now try to automatically setup the Tracks MIDI settings
  • lots of small enhancements

Bugfixes:

  • IAA Effects load the proper effect now
  • IAA Effects will delete/restore fine again
  • IAAs show the proper icons in the VST when used with studiomux
  • fixed a bug that would prevent tempo changes when Ableton Link was not activated
  • fixed a bug that would cause wrong IAA fx to be loaded
  • tons of enhancements and other bugfixes
  • fixed Clip & Track Import & Export
  • new externally recorded notes and CCs will be played back immediately now

If you don’t know modstep then you need to as soon as possible, check it out on the app store now!
