Aurex SampleDeck And Masher For The Novation LaunchPad

Aurex sends word via the Submit A Story page about a couple of new free apps for the Novation Launchpad.

The SampleDeck is a realtime sampling and remix device for the Novation Launchpad. It uses 2 ‘samplers’ to capture a loop while your song is playing and you have the ability to switch the audio to one of the samplers at any time you want

The Remix Sampler samples a 1 bar or 1/2 bar loop, it chops it up in slices and let’s you rearrange the slices in any way you want. The Flex Sampler samples a loop (as long as you like) and let’s you do Vinyl-like actions such as stopping/starting the plate, doing a backspin, reversing, … You can remix and transform everything you want: just a loop, full songs when dj-ing or even a realtime input to remix a live band on the fly. SampleDeck also includes an effects section to spice things up.

Here’s a preview of Masher:

The Masher is an FX Sequencer / FX Device made with Ableton Live 8 for the Novation Launchpad. Send any track you want to the masher and start cutting, mashing, repeating, looping, … This works great for giving a track an extra boost when playing live or even for mixing/mashing two tracks in an original way.

You can sequence 4 different effects and the original track and you have a pad on the LP to flip between the sequenced/effected track and the clear and original track. On top of that you also have 6 master effects and 2 beat repeaters.

Check out the Aurex site for details on Sampledeck and Masher and several other free sequencers for the Novation Launchpad. The apps are free, but donations are welcome.

Requirements: Launchpad and Ableton Live 8.1.3 or higher.
