Konkreet Performer – An iPad Music App That Actually ‘Thinks Different’

iPad Music Software: Konkreet Labs has announced that Konkreet Performer – an iPad music app that actually ‘thinks different’, has been submitted to the App Store for approval.

Taking full advantage of the possibilities created by the latest multi-touch technology, Konkreet Performer delivers a new way to control your DAWs, synthesizers, samplers (anything that receives MIDI/OSC). Konkreet Performer has been designed from the ground up to be a live performance instrument.

No virtual piano keyboards, here.

Konkreet Performer is a control instrument for live music performance. Its multi-touch interface is designed to ‘reconnect the musician’s actions directly with the music,’ according to the developers.

Pricing and availability to come.

Check out the demo video and let us know what you think of Konkreet Performer and its original approach.

  1. It looks cool, but they give you absolutely no clue as to how it actually works, and what it can do.

    Props for thinking different.

  2. I know. How it works IS a total mystery, lol. Though the facebook page seems to provide a tad bit more info.

    There's a whoooooole buttload of abstract controller apps already. They are little more than eye candy. Total BS.

    I'm hoping that there's some real physics/new interactivity going on here ala' the Lemur. That's the only way it's going to rise above the other abstract stuff.

    What feature of the lemur are you referring to?

  4. Included with the Lemur software is something that allows 'bounce' and 'gravity' when controlling parameters. You move a dot or something along an XY type pad, and the dot will keep going after you release it…or bounce around…or go crazy…etc

    There's several vids out there that show this.
