Oasis - Song Sampling Synth

Last November serial app developer Mark Carlotto released Oasis, a synth that turns your iTunes songs into wavetables. Yesterday it was updated with Audiobus!

Oasis iTunes Description:

The songs in your iTunes library are a rich source of sound for creating synths, mash ups, and sound effects. OASIS extracts samples from songs in your iTunes library, and from mp3 and wav files that can be imported into the app. A built in pitch detector tags the sounds so they can be loaded into a wavetable synth. The samples can be modified, played, saved, and exported to other apps. OASIS is Core-MIDI compatible and runs on all iOS devices (limited capability on older devices).

N.B. Currently supports our own audio copy/paste. Future versions will support a standard (TBD) audio copy/paste protocol. Compatible with Auto Sampler.

What's new in v2.0:

  • Improved functionality.
  • Works better with older devices.
  • Now compatible with Audiobus 2.0.

Buy Oasis on iTunes: $2.99

Traktor DJ Update

Both the iPad and iPhone versions of Traktor DJ have been updated with a new Super Slicer, available as a $2 IAP.

  • New SuperSlicer feature available for in-app purchase

Native Instruments has not released a video , or any details, on what the Super Slicer actually does. I suppose I could spend $2 to find out, but I'd rather be flippant. Here is an artist concept video of the Super Slicer by Meow Mix. (Update: The video was only available in the app, but they just uploaded it to YouTube)

S1MidiTrigger Updated with iRing Support

S1MidiTrigger is the first third-party app to add support for IK Multimedia's iRing SDK. As some of you have pointed out in the comments, it would be trivially simple to print out your own iRings, and to prevent that IK Multimedia requires a serial number to unlock support. This requirement extends to apps that implement the SDK. Keep your serial number handy!

What's new in S1MidiTrigger v4.2.0:

Added Features:

  • Support IK Multimedia iRing product. (The world's first 3rd party software) You can control any midi controls by motion gestures.
    Please purchase IK Multimedia iRing product and activate with following steps.
    1. Open Setting View
    2. Tap 'iRing Setting'
    3. Select 'Use iRing' switch to On
    4. Activate it with iRing serial No.
  • Grouping function of each control added
    You can link the operation to other grouped controls.
  • Interpolate value function to the slider control added
    You can easy to operate fadein and fadeout.
  • Live mode added
    You can prevent to swith incorrect screen (like patch editor view) when you perform on the live stage.
  • Invert slider value function added
    Previous version, the slider control only can be increase value down to up only. This version, you can invert slider movement and increase value from up to down.

Breaking changes

  • Changed application support iOS version from 5 to 6.
    The iPad1 supports has been dropped. I am sorry to inconvenient.
  • Dropped support for Line6 MIDI Mobilizer1
    Dropped Line6 MIDI Mobilizer1 (Non compatible CoreMIDI Version) support for improve performance because Line6 MIDI Mobilizer1 SDK supported old architecture only. I am sorry to use this device, please shift another CoreMIDI compatible device.
