Sugar Bytes Egoist

Sugar Bytes have released their 5th iOS app! Egoist brings a new groove box to iPad, with the depth and complexity you'd expect from a Sugar Byte's app. It is on sale for $10 off until the end of the month, and comes with a slick teaser video.

Egoist iTunes Description:

Egoist is a groove instrument. Load any audio file and squeeze the groove out of it! Try your mp3 library and use it as a sound source! The additional onboard bass, beat and fx units make Egoist the perfect track sketch tool in the studio and on the road.

  • Quick + Easy track sketching, based on sample slicing
  • Minimal, yet effective bass line
  • Unique beat box with more than 1000 drums from vintage to electronic
  • Effect Sequencer

  • Slicer:

    The Slicer arranges up to 16 slices of the loaded sample. Apply different parameters like Reverse, Attack, Decay, Level and pitch with the sequencer. Using the 16 available patterns, up to 16 different samples can be used at any time.

    Bass & Beat:

    Egoist includes a great sounding bassline synthesizer/sequencer. The bassline synth offers a mean and strong sound, with different lowpass filter flavors and overdrive. The versatile sequencer is capable of notes and pitch bends of any length.

    The internal beat box offers kick, snare and hihat, along with a simple sequencer. If you imagine, that you can change the drum sounds with each pattern, limitations start to get you inspired!

    Effectrix Inside:

    The Effect unit brings funky hickups to your tracks. Engage tapestop, looper, reverb or filter at any time to give your beats that otherworldly feel and create stunning breaks!

    Song Sequencer:

    Chain your patterns! Or create stunning breakbeats by changing patterns quickly! The internal Part/Song sequencer lets you sketch your pattern progressions and line out your next track.

    Always Special:

    The very special Slice Keys turn Egoist into a slice keyboard! Play the sequencer steps on the keyboard, with all their settings and effects, you will not believe how cool that is!

    Red Sky Lullaby - Burst

    Reader Red Sky Lullaby has released an excellent new album on Bandcamp, Burst. The album feels like EDM all grown-up, with a lot of creatively unexpected moments punctuating every single track. This comes with a playlist of fractal music videos. Vagueness Squared is probably my favorite track on this album, so I encourage you to check out that video below.
