Nanoloop Update

Last week Nanoloop was updated but was crashing on iPads! Fortunately the fix came out today, so here are the goodies added.
As reader Martin Roberts notes, this update adds: "So many new features that it's practically a completely new version."

What's new in Nanoloop v3.2.1:

This is major update with many new functions and new design:

  • Per-step control for all parameters
  • Transpose all parameters via menu icon
  • Variable pattern length
  • 8 channels
  • 6 seconds sample length (mono)
  • Trim samples
  • Fine-tune samples
  • Filter resonance
  • More "gain" range
  • Soft clipping
  • MIDI sync to external devices (tested with Mac over WiFi only)
  • Universal binary for iPad
  • Black color scheme
  • Adjustable font/icon size
  • New layout

New help function: A long press on an icon reveals info and/or a menu.

Triple-taps are not used anymore, double-taps may be used for shortcuts optionally.

That is an excellent round of new features, especially now that it is Universal! I couldn't find any videos of this new version, and was really hoping to see the per-step parameter control in action, but while I was looking I found this: The most amazing thing I've ever heard anyone do with Gameboys. Here Henry Homesweet rocks out on Nanoloop 2.3 cartridges with two Gameboy Advances.

Yamaha Mobile Music Sequencer 3.0

Yamaha updated their Mobile Music Sequencer to 3.0. Along with the new features comes some sales on their popular apps. Unfortunately TNR-i got a sale, but TNR-e did not. TNR-e is the one that they've been giving new features to, so TNR-i may be abandoned. Thanks to readers Hoyas79 and Matt Newby for the news on the sales!

What's new in Mobile Music Sequencer v3.0:

Yamaha's Mobile Music Sequencer enables composers to combine a range of phrase patterns and create musical compositions intuitively, following the flow of composition, from phrases to sections and from sections to songs. Wherever you are, you can now sketch the outline of a composition. In addition, you can use the ingredients to delicately craft songs on a Yamaha synthesizer, or in Steinberg Cubase.

First, try loading the demo song (a number of demo songs are provided). Tap on the settings icon in the top right of the screen, select [Digital Sympathy] from the Presets under the File tab, and press the Load button to read in the song.

Create a song right away as follows:

Step 1-Create phrases

You can choose from a rich selection of 382 preset phrases (the phrase is the smallest unit in the structure of a composition). Under Phrase in the View screen, tap on a cell in which no setting has been made, then tap on the Select button on the left. To listen to a preset phrase, tap on its name. It is also possible to use real-time recordings made using the keyboard within an application, or user phrases which have been created using piano roll input. Using the powerful Loop Remix function, it is possible to divide selected phrases at specified intervals and then order them randomly, automatically insert rolls or breaks, and thus rework them into new phrases.

Step 2-Create sections

Combine multiple phrases together to create a section. Phrases are arranged in a vertical block and playback is turned on and off using the Section button at the bottom of the screen. The phrases can be managed as a single unit.

By specifying codes for individual sections, you can easily create variations. Using the Create command you can also create a succession of new sections based on the phrase that is currently being played back, which allows production to proceed smoothly.

Step 3-Create Songs

Put together complete songs by pasting together sections. This is easily accomplished by touching the Section area and then just dragging and dropping sections into the data area. Naturally, you can also input sections by recording in real time or by using the piano roll screen.
