Artiphon has updated the iOS app for the Instrument 1 MIDI instrument.
The 1.1 update brings new functionality and improved playability to the Instrument 1 firmware and Artiphon software for iOS.
Here’s what’s new:
- String Flip – The String Flip feature uses the INSTRUMENT 1’s built-in accelerometer to automatically switch between lefty and righty tunings based on how the instrument is held. With this update, String Flip becomes a global setting, meaning your preference will persist even when you change presets. For those who play some presets left-handed and others right-handed, we’ve included an override feature that is preset-specific.
- Sensitivity – New and improved sensitivity settings are now at the ready.
- Method Sensitivity – Whether you’re heavy-handed or have a feather touch, you can now more easily achieve the volume and dynamics you seek.
- Hammer-on Sensitivity – Avoid unintended notes by turning the hammer-on sensitivity to Low or Off. Or enjoy a fingerboard that is so sensitive you can simply tap to play notes.
- Aftertouch Pressure Sensitivity – You can now adjust the amount of pressure required to activate effects with aftertouch.
- Tilt Range – a new slider that allows you to select the angle range that activates the Tilt feature. Set a low tilt range to use smaller, more precise motions, or set the range much wider to put on a real show.
- Arpeggiator – The Artiphon app’s arpeggiator feature allows for fun “auto-play” and “auto-strum” playability. With this update, the arpeggiator can be set to different subdivisions of the global tempo.
- MIDI Program Changes -MIDI program changes 1–8 can now be sent by pressing the INSTRUMENT 1’s volume knob. In Ableton Live, Logic Pro X, and other software, you can now switch instrument tracks, press record, play/stop, and perform a range of other options simply by pressing the volume knob.
