Konkreet Performer – a $24.99 music control and performance instrument for the iPad – is now available in the App Store.
You can use Konkreet Performer’s multi-touch interface to play your Synth, operate your DAW, or anything that receives OSC or MIDI. But Konkreet Performer avoids standard music interface conventions, which may encourage new ways of interacting with your music hardware and software.
Here’s what Konkreet Labs has to say about Konkreet Performer:
Konkreet Performer is designed with two aims: one, a controller that utilises multitouch technology to the full; no faders and knobs, instead an intuitive control of software instruments on your computer, via manipulation of abstract objects on your multitouch device.
And two, an instrument for electronic music performance that aims to be visually shared with the audience, to create a live show that is indeed alive!
PERFORMER is a controller. It does not generate sound by itself.
We’ve criticized some apps for being too conservative in the past. For looking backwards, instead of forwards.
That criticism doesn’t apply to Konkreet Performer – which just might blow a few minds.
If you try out Konkreet Performer, we’d like to know what you think of it and how you use it. Mind-blowing videos welcome, too!
