◆ A Modular Instrument for Music Production ◆

KRFT is a modular instrument for expressive music production that we built to challenge the two decade old paradigm of the multi-track DAW.

Designed from the ground up with a focus on live experimentation and expressive interactions, KRFT will inspire you to make music that would normally be out of reach.

Rather than being confined to a fixed interface KRFT lets you create a surface that suits your musical needs whether you're building an experimental groove box or composing an entire track.

Use it standalone with its powerful internal audio engine or with your studio & MIDI enabled gear, such as Ableton Live or Logic Pro X.

---

◆ Produce & perform from one expressive interface ◆
KRFT is a canvas for your musical ideas that can be controlled and interpreted on the fly. Recorded loops, custom samples, dials and more can all be controlled from one unified interface. This structure lends itself to live play, each performance being unique and instinctive.

◆ Craft your masterpiece – piece by piece ◆
Build your canvas from musical cells, each shape with a different behaviour. Loops provide the core of your composition and dials, morphs and fills allow you to add flair and excitement. Group cells to give your track structure ― build as much or as little as you need.

◆ Tweak and refine your sound ◆
KRFT is all about customizability. Editing your recordings or sequencing notes is quick and easy in the Matrix and fine adjustments to the sounds and cell interactions can be edited directly from within the app – no need for external software.

◆ Control other apps, software and hardware ◆
- Send MIDI from KRFT to any DAW e.g. Ableton & Logic Pro
- Sync up with other devices and apps using Ableton Link
- AudioBus Audio & MIDI support
- Use KRFT as a source with Inter-App Audio
- Import your own samples and export your recordings to other apps

However... It's limited to the built-in loops and sounds. As cute as the interface is... Just feels like remixing/DJ.

Yeah, I'm disappointed by that. It looks like it would be a fun platform if they opened it up... but they'd probably rather sell you lots of IAP sample packs.

Yup, I really can't get into pre-made sounds and loops to make music. Blocwave or whatever it's called is well-made but I haven't used it since I bought it. I can imagine it might be good for ideas though and Blocs does allow new user sounds.

Are you guys talking about KRFT? It isn't limited to built-in sounds or loops at all. Every loop opens up to a fully editable piano roll. Every sound can be edited as to its envelope, filter, reverb and delay settings and more.You can build your own complex setups from nothing, laying down loops and controls wherever you want, or edit the ones included.

if this isn't apparent to people who use the app, I'd say they have a marketing problem.

While you currently cannot import your own sounds , you certainly can edit the included sound set immensely to create your own sounds , it is a pretty decent featured synth and as above says you can make whatever patterns in whatever key you want from them they are not loops. Its a really interesting little app and decently priced for what it gives. If they get ableton link and IAA support it will really shine( and they say they are looking into these features)

Developer here --- the sound engine is actually pretty powerful and tweakable. It's not premade loops at all. It's actually more powerful than many other apps --- and yet it gets put in the "DJ Loops" pigeon hole for some reason. Hopefully we can find a way to explain it a bit better!

We would love to add in some kind of sample import --- just want to do it in such a way that it's actually useful rather than just a tick box. Any particularily good implementations out there ? Dropbox seems like a good idea.

I think we meant changing more than just envelope and FX.

However... the app is very reasonably priced so worth trying.

Visually it reminds me of an 80's computer game. Good old Sinclair spectrum isometric perspective.

Hi, weepy! Sign up for an account and I'll set you up with developer flair so your comments stand out.

As for sample import, I believe I can speak for everyone with a heartfelt request of AudioShare! Nearly everyone in iOS music making uses AudioShare to manage their samples and recordings across all apps. It makes the whole business of sample management simple and intuitive. It is even easier than using Jailbroken tools that used to be necessary, like iFile file-browser.
Audioshare import, with preview of sounds before you import, file structure support where we can seperate samples into various folders rather than that one dreadfully long list most apps have. Time stretch so we can adjust wavs to fit the projects bpm, perhaps an option to input bpm and bar length if known.

This is definitely a developer post...

KRFT now has :

* Sample import (Audioshare, Dropbox, Google Drive etc)
* Time stretch
* Audiobus3 support
* IAA support
* Ableton Link support.
* Support MIDI out to hardware/apps/DAWs (from June 8th)
