Reader Stacy Puckett participated in the iPad Musician Facebook Group's free app challenge. The purpose of the challenge was to use as many free apps as they can in a composition. This is one big AUM session!
Live mixing of track for iPad Musician Facebook group “free app” challenge.
This was created on a 2018 128 GB standard iPad entirely within the AUM app utilizing many, many apps. A large portion of them were free.
The bass is Viking Synth (big bottom preset) run through GyroVibe and into Zero Reverb.
The arpeggiated part is AudioKit’s “synth one” (BB Arcade Angel ARP preset) run through DLYM (springy flange preset).
There is also a layer of Primer synth (pad adrift preset by spidericemidas)
The Piano is Korgs Ivory dynamic grand run though Eventides “black hole reverb” (dreamscape preset) NOT FREE.
It was mixed to a .wav file prior to this mixing to save iPad processing resources.
It is run through “Stereo Lag Time” which is free to expand the sound a bit.
Additional apps used are Toneboosters EQ, Korvpressor, BLEASS Sidekick, 4pockets Shimmer, Rozeta suites XOX drum sequencer and Scaler, and Fugue Machine.
All accompaniment other than the piano and simple drum rhythm are generated from a single measure instance of one Fugue Machine single note part. It is actually only one measure slowed WAY down.
It is sequencing Viking, Synth One and Primer Synth.
The Viking bass rhythm is generated by using the Perforator gating effect app by Bram Bos.
I hope you enjoy it.
It was very much inspired by my newest Spotify and YouTube fascination, Nils Frahm, although it really does not sound like him at all (I wish) If you’re into amazing piano music mixed with electronica in forward thinking ways check him out.
Yes, it WAY over compressed. Maybe less Korvpressor next time 🙂
