Moog's Model 15 with AC Sabre Series

AC Sabre developer Hari Karam Singh has started a new YouTube series to explore the wild results possible when his app is paired with Moog's Model 15. The series starts off with a detailed explanation of his MIDI configuration, and is definitely worth watching to see how you can take advantage of AC Sabre's potential. To coincide with this series, AC Sabre is on sale right now for $5! The series playlist is embedded here.

PARAT+ by Sebastian Lexer

Sebastian Lexer's first app is PARAT+, an elaborate modular OSC/MIDI controller! This one focuses on multitouch gesture controls. The layout is a simple array of faders, but it promises to be intuitive and instantly remappable.

PARAT+ iTunes Description:

Parat+ is an Open Sound Control (OSC) and MIDI controller app allowing intuitive and sophisticated control of networked sound and visual computer software and hardware devices. Parat+ has powerful gestural touch screen controls and multitouch gestures available in the most efficient and intuitive ways possible. Developed by practitioners for practitioners, Parat+ is a tool for the musician, artist and technician using technology to advance their art.

Much more than a virtual ‘fader box’, it allows you to record, remap and set controls instantly and intuitively. Swipe and multitouch gestures record, loop and remap the interval of each fader and responsivity curve. Rescale, enlarge, pause and interrupt to modify your controls in realtime. Control sound levels, effects parameters, synthesis, lights and more via OSC and MIDI simultaneously.

Parat+ combines powerful software and hardware parameter control with data automation and manipulation. It is fully compatible with OSC enabled software such as:
• Max
• PD
• Processing
• Digital Performer
• Reaper
• Reaktor
• Ardour and more.

All other software and hardware including DMX for lighting rigs can be controlled via MIDI.

The fader-style controller modules at the core of Parat+ can control parameters and functions of any MIDI and/or OSC enabled software and hardware. Multiple OSC targets can be defined to optimise user flexibility.

The Faders offer unparalleled realtime control via the multitouch three point control feature which allows the user to remap the interval and responsivity curve of each fader in realtime.

The touch gesture features include:
• One finger gestures to control the fader value.
• Two finger gestures to adjust the fader's minimum and maximum values.
• Three finger gestures to adjust the minimum, maximum and responsivity curve.

Use absolute touch mode to have the Fader value jump to whichever finger position is applied and relative touch mode to avoid any sudden jumps due to changes in finger position, allowing for seamless transitions in volume etc..

Each Fader can also be remotely controlled and automated by the Gesture Recorder, internal LFO generators, audio analysis and sensors, external OSC sources and MIDI controllers.

Use Parat+ as a central control hub for any performance and production setup, and shape OSC data streams sent to Parat+ to control your software and hardware parameters. Incoming OSC data (e.g. data from sensors, analysis modules and generative algorithms) can be modified and modulated using the the scaling and modulation features of Parat+ Sources and Faders.

Gesture recording and playback allows looped and one-shot automations of unlimited length.

The simplicity and coherence of the tools enable any novice to venture into custom built controls, while the accustomed performance system developer will appreciate the time saved for complex setups.

The philosophy behind Parat+ is to extend and assist your practice without imposing an approach. The app has been designed with the knowledge that creative work requires tools that can grow with their users, allowing individual and intuitive creative application while maintaining flexibility and diversity. Artists who are familiar with programming will appreciate the intuitive approach to data handling and parameter mapping. Users who lack experience with sophisticated technology will find themselves empowered to embrace cutting-edge interactive technology in the most intuitive and approachable manner. By keeping technical concerns to a minimum, the user is free to make artistic and aesthetic choices guided by their own creativity, avoiding the constraints of conventional software and controllers.

Do not adjust your sound, because there is none at all in this short demo.

DJ Mondo's Atomic Luau: App Fight!! - Jubilant Delinquency

YouTuber DJ Mondo did an "App Fight!!" between Figure and Troublemaker, while watching Akira.

Video Description:

DJ Mondo's Atomic Luau: App Fight!! - Jubilant Delinquency

They call it ‘juvenile’ delinquency, but the lure of no responsibility and impulsivity follow many into adulthood. Even worse, many of those afflicted are happily unaware.


Just picked up an app called Troublemaker. Excellent emulation of a TB-303 sequencer with Ableton Link and Audiobus support. Paired it up with Figure from Allihoopa with has a lot of great, built-in sounds.

You should play hooky and try these.

The Atomic Luau is a peek into DJ Mondo’s lab. A sound sketchbook of beats, rhythms and noise that will get inside your head.
