Artiphon Update

Artiphon got a firmware and app update, adding two new ways to play on the expressive and expensive instrument controller.

What's new in Artiphon v1.0.7:

iOS App 1.0.7
With INSTRUMENT 1 Firmware 1.0.40

New Feature: String Bending

With the new String Bend feature, you can now bend notes by applying pressure to the fingerboard.
In Fretted Strum technique, string bending allows you to press on the fingerboard to pitch bend the string.
To turn on the feature, tap the “A” icon to go into Settings where you’ll find an on/off switch. This switch can also be found in the INSTRUMENT 1 Editor for Mac/Windows.

New Feature: Tilt

Rotating the INSTRUMENT 1 can now shape sounds in new expressive ways.
Using the built-in accelerometer, tilt the INSTRUMENT 1 to control the mod wheel in the Artiphon app, GarageBand, or any other MIDI app that supports this input.
In a horizontal position, the mod wheel is at zero. It starts activating at 15 degrees, and is at max value when the instrument is in a vertical position.
To turn on the Tilt feature, go to Settings where you’ll find an on/off switch. This switch is also available in the INSTRUMENT 1 Editor for Mac/Windows.
When using the Artiphon App, Tilt controls a filter sweep effect. In third-party music apps, mod-wheel (MIDI CC 1) can often be mapped to control any effect.

New Feature: No-Note is now a tuning option

You asked and we built it: individual strings can now be turned off.
New tuning presets have been included for instruments with four or five strings like banjo, bass, and violin.
No-Note can also be assigned to grid or pad locations.

Update Mode Light Show

A new LED pattern indicates that the INSTRUMENT 1 is updating. We hope you like it :)

Audio Effects On/Off

On/off switches for delay and reverb are available in the “More” section of preset settings.

Reset App Preferences

In Settings, use the Reset button to bring all global parameters to back to their default settings.

Bug Fixes

Verification Hash Error blocks firmware updates.
The first time a note tuning is edited, the note will de-select.

Known Issues

Lightly tapping the bridge with tap method can double-trigger notes.
Pressing hard near the edge of a fret can cut off the note. This can be obvious when using String Bend.
Changing the sound in the Artiphon app resets the capo setting.

Citizen-X: Tales To Astonish

Reader Citizen-X has released an album produced in NanoStudio and Gadget, with various other apps. The album sounds good, but it is super weird. I think you might want to start with something easy like Weeping Angels before venturing off the deep end into this SciFi EDM.
