DrumPerfect Pro, the Human Feel Drummer for iOS!

“Following the steps of his predecessor DrumPerfect, DrumPerfect Pro is now one of the most versatile digital drummers ( on iPad ) I have ever used. My favorite, for sure. What set it apart is the fact that it doesn’t sound like a drum machine at all. You have to listen to it to believe. It just sound like a living drummer. An excellent drummer at home in any style, any genre. Groovy and solid.
Technically highly skilled, able to improvise variations with good taste and nuances.

LINK to MIDI is here

screen1136x1136

More options for using Ableton Link with your gear …

Link to MIDI = Ableton Link to MIDI Clock Sync.

Link to MIDI connects Ableton Link to musical devices that support MIDI Clock Sync. Simply join a Link session, connect your MIDI device, and that’s it. Your MIDI device is now Link-enabled.

Link to Midi features launch quantization, an incredibly stable clock output, and a fine offset control (±250 ms) to perfectly line up the receiving MIDI device’s playback.

Note:
Link to MIDI is only recommended for use with hardware MIDI devices. Connecting to apps is possible, but may lead to a poor user experience due to software challenges in synchronizing to MIDI Clock. Ableton Link fixes this.

Link to MIDI is free on the app store:

MIDI Link Sync arrives

1screen1136x1136

After a not very long wait, it arrives! MIDI Link Sync!

Here are the details:

Want to use your favourite MIDI-only apps and hardware with Ableton Link? MIDI Link Sync provides an experimental tool that bridges the two.

In the future we imagine most apps will support Ableton Link natively, but there’ll still be plenty of MIDI hardware that doesn’t. Bridging MIDI and Link will never take the place of native support, but it in some setups it can work surprisingly well. Either way we hope MIDI Link Sync provides a fun, interesting and (sometimes?!) useful tool.

2 MODES OF OPERATION

▪ Ableton Link » MIDI ▪

Makes Ableton Link act as a MIDI master by producing a MIDI clock that is in sync with the Ableton Link timeline.

In this mode, the outgoing MIDI clock is able to follow the Ableton Link timeline reasonably accurately. However, we’ve noticed that quite a few apps don’t follow the incoming MIDI clock with the same accuracy.

▪ MIDI » Ableton Link ▪

Makes Ableton Link act as a MIDI slave to an external MIDI clock by manipulating the Ableton Link tempo to keep it in sync.

Ableton Link peers are able to propose new tempos to take effect at a specific point in time. We’ve combined this ability with some control theory so that MIDI Link Sync can massage the Link timeline into phase with the MIDI timeline. As a result, there are a few factors that can affect the overall accuracy: the most important being the quality of the incoming MIDI clock.

MIDI clocks and programmers both have quirks! You can find the latest known issues using the link below:

CHAiOS SYNTH 2 has arrived

2screen480x480

Another new synth for your iPad (your iOS 9.1 as a minimum iPad) actually. Here’s all the details …

The CHAiOS SYNTH 2 is a further development of the free and easy-to-use CHAiOS SYNTH, which was formerly developed at the University of Applied Sciences Duesseldorf. The new version is beefed up by a number of new features and improvements. Now the CHAiOS SYNTH 2 has become a full professional synthesizer while staying as intuitive and uncomplicated as its predecessor.

With support for Inter-App Audio and Audiobus the CHAiOS SYNTH 2 can be used together with other audio apps on iPad.

Main features:

  • 16 Step melody generator with unique random algorithm
  • Wavetable oscillator with three different waveforms
  • VA lowpass filter with variable resonance and cutoff frequency
  • Delay- and reverb-effects
  • ADSR envelopes for controlling amp and filter frequency
  • Support for Audiobus and Inter-App Audio
  • Improvements to CHAiOS Synth 1
    • New bandlimited wavetable oscillator
    • New „virtual analog“ 4-pole lowpass filter
    • Additional ADSR-envelope for the filter frequency
    • 3 modes for filter resonance
    • 16 step /3 track drum-sequencer
    • More parameters for reverb and delay
    • Adjustable oscillator volume
    • Improved, streamlined design

1screen480x480

Workflow:
By placing your finger on the X/Y-pad a looped melody is generated by a random algorithm, the finger position determines how many notes are used.
If a melody sounds good to you, it can be looped and the sound can be tweaked by a number of parameters and effects.
The options to modify the sound are carefully selected to work well together and provide a creative and fun workflow.

The old, free version of CHAiOS SYNTH is still available at the App Store FOR FREE, but will not be developed or maintained any further. Check it out to get the idea of the CHAiOS Engine!

With Cream Mobile it’s very easy to create catching lead parts, bouncing bass lines, swinging drums and lots of other cool stuff. The only obstacle is your imagination 🙂

Cream Mobile isn’t like any traditional MIDI arpeggiator or sequencer. It’s a lot more. With simple and clever design it has been made easy to learn and operate. You can easily create cool performances by tweaking only couple of controls. If this is not enough for you there are so many ways you can control Cream that you never feel bored with it.

Kirnu Cream is good for everybody; hobbyists, professionals, producers, composers, mamas, papas… whoever needs a good MIDI performer to make their songs PERFECT!
