Superbooth 2019: Paint Your Music with fluXpad

MusicTech got a demo of the fun fluXpad, from developer Jan T.v. Falkenstein, at Superbooth!

Video Description:

Made under the label MoMinstruments (for founders Mouse On Mars), fluXpad is a sampler and sequencer where you create sequences by drawing on the iPad. The app has also gained high-profile devotees such as Justin Vernon (Bon Iver). We see how easy it is to make a sequence in this video.

The concept is excellent-- i.e., ability to freely draw pitches across time grid.

MIDI's reliance on global pitch-bending, and the difficulty managing pitch curves across note changes is an added challenge. The Velocity Keyboard and other apps seem to manage it through "smart" guesses.

Great for experimenting with swimmy off-grid melodic shapes.
Whenever I play with thIs, I make crazy fun grooves. It physically prevents me from scowling even a little bit.
