Shove - Ableton Push Replacement for Lemur

Ableton's Push controller for Live has been an awfully tempting new piece of gear. At around $600 it is very pricey for what is essentially just some buttons and a Python script. This script is how Ableton interacts with controllers, sending meta-data in addition to MIDI commands.

It was only a matter of time before someone figured out a way to use that same script on a Lemur template, and Lemur user WUL has done just that! Registered Liine Lemur owners can download Shove for free.

Create Digital Music tested it out and was very pleased with it. One caption at the bottom of the article is particularly quotable:

"Remarkably, once installed, using the iPad app in emulation means Ableton Live can’t tell your tablet from an actual Push."

Spectre Modular MIDI Sequencer

Reader Florent alerted me to another analog-style MIDI sequencer released today. Spectre takes the much more elaborate approach found in modular systems; with all kinds of great density in here like clock-dividers, sequential switches, and even logic (AND, XOR, NOR) gates!

Unfortunately some of the design seems equally dense. There's a baffling implementation for external sync, using a Middle C on channel 16 for each step in the sequence, rather than just a MIDI clock. There is no mention of VirtualMIDI or background support, but it does have a detailed demo video and PDF manual.

Spectre Modular MIDI Sequencer iTunes Description:

The Spectre Midi Sequencer is a modular sequencing iPad app. This app is built to emulate the way analog modular synthesizer sequencing systems operate. The modules used in this app are basic building blocks for generating sequences. The sequences can range from simple to complex in a very intuitive fashion.

I'm virtually certain that this demo video is sequencing some external synth, because he's playing with filters and stuff that we're not seeing any modulation for. As far as I know this is just a MIDI sequencer and does not generate any sound on its own.
