Bolasol has updated WerkBench for iPad to version 3.

The update is a major one for the touchscreen sampler & sequencer, adding support for iOS 11, Audiobus 3, new effects, an improved engine and more. 

Here’s what’s new in WerkBench 3:

  • Essentials:
    • iOS11 compatibility
    • Audiobus 3 (Audio receiver and sender, MIDI receiver)
    • All new graphics
  • More effects:
    • Reverb (decay, color, and mix), independent sends for each sample
    • Bit crusher
    • High-pass filter in instrument controls.
  • More step-editing/automation parameters:
    • Attack
    • Reverb sends
    • Bit crusher down-sampling per step

  • New ways to interact:
    • All step-automation parameters can be recorded in real time.
    • All step-automation parameters can be randomized.
    • Step-automation can be preserved when sampling (letting you pre-program melodies, etc. before sampling).
  • New file format:
    • Easy sharing and importing between devices:
    • .werk files can be made by zipping a folder of wavs and renaming the extension.
    • And vice versa, you can unzip .werk files on your computer to get the .wav files that were recorded in Werkbench.
  • Engine stuff:
    • Longer sample times (2x as long as before)
    • Wider pitch range (up to 8 octave range per sample).
    • 64 note max polyphony (configurable)
