Kickstarter: Joué - Modular MIDI Controller

Joué is the latest Kickstarter campaign begging for your cash. This modular MIDI controller lets you swap out different control surfaces on the fly. It is class-compliant and iOS compatible. They even use Animoog in the promo.

Their campaign goals are modest at just $75,000 and they've already secured 33% of that in the first day. If you're interested you can get in on this for between €260-€345. Pay close attention to the different backing tiers because you get different modules for different packs. No matter which pack you choose, you'll be waiting until at least August 2017 before they ship.

pianoscaper by Rob Jackson

Rob Jackson has released pianoscaper as a followup to his popular moodscaper app! The sounds on this one are wildly unique, but Rob assures us that they all started from acoustic piano samples. This is being pitched as a "lite" version of moodscaper; with no intention of adding all of the features people are demanding of moodscaper. With that said, you should still check out the amazing sounding demo video below!

pianoscaper iTunes Description:

Pianoscaper is a generative music app and virtual instrument that’s easy on the ears and fun to play. Launch the app, and with a single tap of the auto-play button, pianoscaper will create evolving and ambient soundscapes that are unique every time.

While all of the pianoscaper sounds originated from acoustic pianos, many have been extensively processed to create an “impossible piano” that can morph between orchestral-type swells and ethereal choir-like sounds. Think of it as piano DNA taken to the next level!

Pianoscaper in auto-play mode is the perfect companion for relaxing, studying or providing non-intrusive headphone music at work or on your commute. You can even set a timer so you can fall asleep to its gentle and soothing tones.

You can also play pianoscaper as a virtual instrument using the dedicated keypads and performance loop recorders, and tailor the sounds with built-in reverb, delay and “character” effects parameters. And while you’re playing, pianoscaper can lend a hand by adding auto-accompaniment parts and even provides hints for notes it thinks might sound good depending on which notes you play!

As a sample-based instrument, pianoscaper currently supports two “moods” – a happy mood, based on the G major pentatonic scale, and a sad mood, based on the Dm pentatonic scale. Please note that pianoscaper is not a chromatic or MIDI-compatible instrument, and it is unlikely to become one, although additional moods and scales may be added as free updates.

You can also record and process the audio output of pianoscaper using any Inter-App Audio host that supports IAA Generators.

You are free to use pianoscaper in your own recordings or live events and installations on a royalty-free basis. All I would ask for is a simple credit that includes the name of the app – “pianoscaper”.

I hope you will agree the pianoscaper interface, while minimalist and a perhaps a little cryptic initially, will eventually become very easy to use. Please do take the time to read the quick-start guide which can be found on the website. This is also the best place to ask questions, get technical support or report any issues.

Happy pianoscaping!

*** Special note for moodscaper owners ***

While pianoscaper is very similar to the current version of moodscaper, it is not intended to be a replacement. Development of moodscaper will continue, and moodscaper will remain my flagship generative app, eventually gaining the advanced features you’ve all been patiently waiting for, such as MIDI and better sample import etc. Think of pianoscaper as a lightweight (and cheaper) alternative for those who don’t require the advanced bells and whistles. Pianoscaper also came about because I was inundated with requests to make an app similar to moodscaper that sounded less “intense” and more relaxing and I hope I’ve managed to do that. Thanks for your understanding and patience.

I love how this sounds! There are more demos on the official moodscaper YouTube channel.
