Rheyne - Nave Jam

Rheyne only just found out about Nave last night and immediately put it to good use in this looping jam with Nave on 2 iPads!

Video Description:

Live looping with analog keyboards, USB controllers, iOS devices, and Ableton Live, with heavy focus on the Waldorf's "Nave" app. One is being played live directly on the glass, and the other is being triggered by a KMI QuNexus, with the tilt and pressure sensors controlling the wave position and spectrum of the wavetable. This jam barely scratches the surface of this powerful synth, and I'll definitely be featuring it more often.

VocaLive Updated with Audiobus

IK Multimedia's VocaLive vocal processing apps have been updated with Audiobus, but it is unclear if they can be used as an effect, output, or just as an input. They are not listed on the official Audiobus Compatible Apps page, which may mean Audiobus requires an additional In-App Purchase. It is now listed as an Input, Effect, and Output slot compatible app.

What's new in VocaLive v1.6:


Use VocaLive with other audio apps in real time.

  • Audiobus Support*
  • Added selectable input channel for multitrack audio devices

* requires iPad 2 or later
