We are not going to make a clone of existing DAW apps. Instead, we choose a special way, something you?ve never seen before. Cycloop is going to inherit certain decisions from the famous DOS trackers (Scream, Impulse, Fast trackers), along with some Songineer and MINT.io motives.
Expect an app that can possibly fulfill any mobile musician?s needs. Multitracking, plugin-based insert & send FX, built-in IDM and randomizer tricks, scale manipulations and flexible sample/synth architecture. All that packed (but not crowded) in just several clean-designed screens (no neon this time!) of pure touchscreen music-making goodness, and working in conjuction with our existing (and future) apps.
This user demo, via darshonaut, looks at how to use a reel to reel tape machine as a tape delay with a modular synthesizer:
I wanted to turn my Reel to Reel Tape Machine (Revox A77 MK III) into a Tape Delay, but since I don’t use a traditional mixing desk with Aux In/Out , I had to come up with a patch for my Curetronic modular synthesizer.
Developer Igor Vasiliev, creator of MIDI Pattern Sequencer, has announced Audio Mastering Studio for iPad, described as a “fully functional audio mastering application for iPad”.
- Linear-phase 10-bands graphic Equalizer based on phase shifts – has “unique soft sound, very close in sound to the quality analog devices”.
- Harmonic Saturator with three sets of harmonics
- Stereo Imaging “takes control of sound space of your composition and lets you make sounding wider or narrower in each of three bands.”
- Loudness Maximizer can increase RMS of your track without audible distortion.
Here’s what he has to say about Audio Mastering Studio: Continue reading
At Musikmesse 2013, Yamaha introduced the new Pocketrak PR7, an “ultra-portable” linear recorder. Equipped with newly-developed XY stereo microphones, the PR7 captures high-resolution stereo recordings, regardless of the surrounding sonic environment.
The PR7 offers practice functions, like an onboard tuner and metronome. It comes with 2GB of internal memory (and the ability to expand storage capacity with micro SD/SDHC memory cards) and features long battery life, mic line inputs for microphones or instruments, 24bit/96kHz recording and a built-in speaker.
The PR7 is equipped with a dedicated overdubbing button, to allows for the addition of solo sections and harmonies over an existing track. Marker editing lets users insert up to 36 index markers in audio files during recording or playback. These markers can also be used to loop a specific section of a file. Continue reading
