Rej Poirier of Single Cell Software has introduced Caustic Editor for Volca Sample – a free, multiplatform (Android, iOS, Mac & Windows) app that lets you import, load, record, edit and upload samples for the Korg Volca Sample.

“Korg were nice enough to open up their volca sample SDK to 3rd parties,” says Poirer, “so I took a few days to rip out Caustic’s WAV editor and turn it into a stand-alone, multi-platform tool.”

“It was taken from my Caustic 3.2 working branch,” he adds, “so it even has a few more functions than what’s in Caustic 3.1!” Continue reading

Scratch Disc Offers 12 Turntables & A Microphone

scratch-discKristin Graffagnino has released Scratch Disc – a new performance oriented app that lets you ‘scratch’ sounds, using 12 virtual turntables.

Scratch Disc features 12 turntables spread out on the iOS screen, each with their own sound fragment that can be scratched in a “random access” manner. The benefit is that the performer gets a wider sound palette and can make performances that would be difficult or impossible with a standard DJ setup.

Developer Kristin Graffagnino (aka DJ BlondieK), says “When designing this app, the intent was not to realistically emulate a real turntable on a touch screen.”

“Any attempt at that would fail because analog equipment like turntables will always be more responsive than their computer recreations. Scratch Disc instead provides a new way to perform the sounds of scratching a record.” Continue reading
