Developer Lasse Kolding shared this sneak preview of the upcoming telePort Control app, in its iPhone form.
The focus here is on using the phone as a controller for an instrumentalist doing live looping music with the live performance-oriented music app telePort (Mac & Windows).
telePort lets you integrate hardware and software instruments, as one advanced combined, programmable and morphable instrument. It brings a modular approach to (augmented) sequencing and mixing, while at the same making it easy to switch between completely different songs/tracks, or change the modules independently as the music is playing.
The goal is to create a very flexible music system, where you can have a whole set, not just a song, at your fingertips and improvise or play structured parts based on rules you define freely.
The telePort Control app for iOS is designed to let you make music away from the computer, and even to let multiple users play together at the same time.
“There’s really no reason why only one person should be playing with a computer running telePort at a time,” notes Kolding. “A ridiculous 16 iOS devices can be connected to a single computer running telePort, and they will each and all show what is being done on any one of them.”
telePort is available as a beta and the telePort Control app is expected to be available in a few weeks. See the developer’s site for more info.
