BLEASS was released yesterday as a new groovebox, with 2 drum tracks and 2 mono synth tracks. I believe the name is pronounced like a bleating sheep trying to say, "Bliss." The app arrives with Ableton Link and Audiobus, as well as MIDI In/Out support. Many of you will be annoyed by the app being locked in portrait mode on iPad, while nearly all of you will be offended by the subscription pricing of €7 per month.
BLEASS iTunes Description:Fed up with standardized presets and instruments? Feel lost in overcomplex filters and effects? Don’t wanna sound like everyone else? BLEASS is just the right instrument for you: it unleashes your inner musical creativity by bringing music production and performance to its very core: play, perform, compose beats and melodies in a new yet intuitive way thanks to its multitrack sequencer, synthesizer and drum machine.
PROFESSIONAL GRADE INSTRUMENT
BLEASS is the first iOS music instrument invented for both iPhones & iPads to bring instant musical bliss with almost limitless possibilities: its powerful realtime audio engine has been designed to let you go deep in the shaping of electronic sounds without being limited by factory presets.
WILD BASSES, BEATS AND SYNTHS
Record, import and edit your own samples and make sick beats out of the 16 steps sequencer with customizable filters and grooves.
Customize endlessly your mono synths by tweaking the filters, envelopes and LFO !
BUILT FOR STUDIO AND LIVE PERFORMANCE
Record/Edit/Start/Stop/Copy/Paste your patterns as you feel like, build and arrange your song on the fly, apply reverb or delay effects, and let the music live!
Thanks to its unique slider controls and long-press ergonomics and its unique wild sound, BLEASS almost feels like an electric guitar.
COMPATIBLE WITH THE iOS MUSIC STANDARDS
BLEASS supports Ableton Link, Audiobus and Inter-App Audio and also works in complete synergy with all of your studio soft- and hardware gear using MIDI IN/OUT and SYNC features.
All musicians will enjoy using BLEASS for its intuitiveness and musical potential, making music composition and live performance feel completely uninhibited.
