Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro 4

mDecks has released version 4 of their Tonal Harmony study aid, Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro, along with a great demo video.

iTunes Description:

Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro has been envisioned as auxiliary material in the study of Tonal Harmony. The main objective of this app is to provide the student, teachers, composers and/or songwriters with a tool that will aid them in hearing, analyzing, foreseeing and composing harmonic progressions without struggle, in all keys alike.

The map has seven levels of complexity, from the basic diatonic neighborhood advanced secondary functions in major and minor modes and is viewable in all 12 keys and enharmonic spellings, plus a functional view (relative to the tonic). Each level is also accompanied by its respective workbook available at for further study and research.

All of that might sound boring, and the promise of Beethoven might not have you very excited either, but I think this video does an excellent job of demonstrating how you can explore harmonic relationships in the app. This is some high-level shit, and it is only $5!

Impellent - Video Synthesizer Demo

Synthesizing video is both interesting and rarely explored. Unfortunately most of the videos for it tend to be supremely boring, with nothing but cheesy repetitive blips and blorps for musical accompaniment to the visuals.

DR-OM co-developer Shawn Greenlee has made the first video synth demo I've watched all the way through, with some musical talent added to his tweaking and experimenting, in this video found by MATRIXSYNTH.

Video Description:

Continued developments with realtime graphic synthesis techniques. Impellent is the latest of my "graphic waveshaping" programs realized with MaxMSP. Inputs to the system are two Bodelin digital microscopes, scanning works on paper. Changes in the sonic output are determined by the interpretation of the image data (pixel rows become non-linear transfer functions and effect parameters). Movements on a multitouch trackpad configure this interpretation. Development of Impellent is ongoing. The accompanying sound is played on the DR-OM iOS app (for which I am one of the developers) running through Grand Orbiter and Disaster Transport pedals from Earthquaker Devices.

Rob Fielding BitWiz Test

Rob Fielding, developer of Geo Synth and Cantor, has been playing with Kymatica's BitWiz! This app is bonkers, but a lot of fun to experiment with so I can see why it caught a fellow developer's attention.

In this video Rob is exploring the sounds he can get out of it, using a harmonic mathematical series as a stand-in for traditional scales. Most people just use it as a drone machine, but I also enjoy finding ways to "play" BitWiz.

If you already own BitWiz you can play along at home, since Rob has shared the patch on Twitter. That is one of the nicest things about BitWiz, you don't have to go into the depths of 8-bit bitwise synthesis hell alone! Lots of people share BitWiz patches on Twitter, including Richard Devine, Palm Sounds' Ashley Elsdon, and yours truly.

Sunsine Audio Demos Hybrid Presets

Fletcher Kaufman from Sunsine Audio has an interesting proof-of-concept video for what he calls Hybrid Presets. Using the effects engine in Magellan Jr., you can quickly swap effects just by loading up a new preset. This is really useful, as Fletcher demonstrates, when used with Audiobus! Now we can have a whole new class of presets dedicated to effects we like!

Warning: Turn down the volume when Fletcher stops speaking. It gets crazy loud!
