iPhone Music Software: ReBirth is back!
As the promo video notes, ReBirth was a milestone in electronic music. It was an affordable application that turned your computer into a techno studio, complete with a Roland TR-808, a Roland TR-909 and two (2!) Roland TB-303 Computer Controlled Bass Line synthesizers.
People freaked out about ReBirth – because it gave you access to thousands of dollars of rare gear, in virtual form – and because it let you make and share techno music from your computer.
Now it’s available for $6.99 for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. And ReBirth for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad is another milestone.
ReBirth helped establish the idea of virtual studios. And while there are already many music apps for the iPhone platform, ReBirth is going to help establish the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad platform as a virtual studio, too.
What a complete no-brainer…….
For the price of lunch, you can put a virtual studio on your iPhone and carry it with you wherever your are. That’s pretty amazing.
And, if you think about how quickly ReBirth on the desktop evolved into things like Propellerhead Reason – it’s pretty clear that amazing things are coming.
Check it out and let me know what you think about ReBirth coming to the iPhone!
Note: ReBirth runs in iPhone scaled mode on the iPad, which is lame. This is something they should update asap!
About Propellerhead ReBirth:
ReBirth is back…In your iPhone! Propellerhead Software’s legendary Techno Micro Composer has been reincarnated. This time around, ReBirth takes the form of a seriously block rocking iPhone music app. Released in 1997 and discontinued in 2005, Propellerhead ReBirth was the first music software to reproduce the sound and behavior of those three classic Roland devices that defined the sound of early Techno and Acid House: the TB-303 Bassline Synth and the TR-808 and TR-909 Rhythm Composers.
With dual basssynths and pattern sequencers, two sets of drum machines plus FX and mixer sections, ReBirth gives you an extremely streamlined but very powerful music production environment. Every knob and button on ReBirth’s devices can be tweaked and turned in real time, so when you plug your iPhone into that massive sound system, you’re in charge everything from pattern selections to the depth of those nasty Acid filter squelches.
ReBirth for the iPhone may be small and ever so cutesy looking, but it’s no toy, believe it. With a fully featured song mode and advanced copying and pasting capabilities, ReBirth is a fully featured iPhone music software product that lets you arrange and compose full tracks for saving to your iPhone. You can even share your songs with other ReBirth users – one single click will upload your composition to the ReBirth server, allowing other users to enjoy your music in their iPhones.
