Tutorial: BeatMaker 2 Virtual MIDI

Sean over at iOS Musician has posted a short and sweet tutorial on using BeatMaker 2's Virtual MIDI with Sunrizer and MoDrum.

Sean's using Display Recorder like I do, so you can see finger presses. He's also unsure of how to sign-off at the end, just like me!

Buy Sunrizer on iTunes: $4.99

Buy MoDrum on iTunes: $5.99

BeepStreet's Impaktor Released!

After a lot of teasing, Impaktor from Sunrizer developer BeepSteet is finally here! This Universal drum synthesizer is quite unique, using acoustic impulses to drive synthesis. There are no samples here!

iTunes Description:

Just slap your desk like you would a real drum. The real acoustical impulses from the built-in microphone are used as an excitation source for advanced sound modules that simulates behavior of membranes, cymbals, metallophones or strings. This makes Impaktor a highly responsive and expressive instrument.

With semi-modular architecture and several types of synthesis, Impaktor can produce a wide range of tones, from acoustic, like Tabla, Djembe, Marimba, Cymbals, Metal bars to electronic or industrial sounds.

  • Synthesis: physical modeling, frequency modulation, noise shaping
  • Semi-modular architecture; 2 modules with configurable routing
  • 2 modulation sources: velocity and lfo-envelope. Almost every parameter can be modulated
  • Multimode filter, harmonic exciter and several types of amplifiers
  • Over 90 presets available, more coming soon
  • No samples used
  • Ultra low latency
  • 6 tracks audio recorder
  • True 3d panning
  • Auto-quantization with configurable time-signature
  • Reverb and Delay effects
  • Audio-copy and wave export

This has been in testing for quite a while, and I think you can tell that is paying off with important usability features right out of the gate. Auto-Quantization and Audio-copy export in version 1.0! Last week BeepStreet released this demo video of it in action.

Redesigning some site code, please ignore weirdness.

On Thursday I received two different suggestions for the site, and I was thinking the side bar needed a redesign anyhow!

Saturday is my slowest traffic day, so I'll be poking around at the code a bunch today. As someone who spends a lot of time criticizing other people's work, I actually welcome criticism. Feel free to take this opportunity to make any other suggestions or let me know about anything you don't like.

Things I'm adding:

  • Search - Rene wrote in with this suggestion, and I agree this is a great idea. Fortunately SquareSpace has a really good module for that, so I'll add a search bar above below the menu, because it looks bad above.
  • Recent Comments - Not only did Will suggest this feature, he helped me with some style and jQuery code to make it look pretty!
  • Space - I'm moving things around to make space and that won't be entirely done until Monday or Tuesday, when I plan to announce something developers will be interested in.

Incidentally, Will's pretty clever with webcode. If you use NanoStudio and want to make custom .TRG files he has a great little web app to make them easily: http://luktown.org/random/trg/

Update: Alright my changes for the weekend are done. Which means if anything weird happens from now on it isn't me doing it and I probably don't know about it, so let me know in the comments! Thanks!

Advanced Tutorial: PPG WaveGenerator

There were a lot of requests for a WaveGenerator tutorial, so instead of a review here is a tutorial!

The app is really way too complex to do in my typical style, so this is more like general advice and tips. I hope it helps!

For reasons not fully explained JamUp Lite and Pro have XT added to the end of their names, but they are the same old apps.
