DigiKeys AUv3 Sequencer Plugin by 4Pockets.com

After a bit of teasing, 4Pockets.com released DigiKeys AUv3 Sequencer Plugin. This pattern based sequencer for AUv3 hosts offers a tremendous amount of features. There's a pattern randomizer for fun madness, and a Selectable Scale guide for when you want to draw within the lines. Your DigiKeys patterns can be chained together to create whole songs. This was actually out on the App Store a couple of days ago, but that version was buggy. A hotfix update arrived this morning!

DigiKeys AUv3 Sequencer Plugin

DigiKeys is an AUv3 compatible MIDI sequencer plugin for AUM or other AUv3 compatible host applications.

DigiKeys is a pattern based sequencer which can be used to drive either external MIDI based AUv3 instruments, or the internal sample based audio engine. It can also be used as a 16 channel multi-timbral sound source accepting MIDI data on each of the 16 MIDI channels and routing to 16 internal instruments. This flexible design allows you to experiment with pattern based song construction using the DigiKeys sound engine, then map to external MIDI based synth engines once an idea needs expanding. The program was created specifically for AUM, but should function fine under any DAW of your choice (routing options permitting). The advantage of AUM is its unlimited routing flexibility, and the ability to split MIDI output in order to feed multiple AV3 sound sources

DigiKeys allows you to create looped patterns which can later be chained into songs. Each pattern has 16 tracks (one for each MIDI channel) which can be up to 32 steps in length. Each track can have its own playback speed, transposition and effects routings. You can chain up to 256 of these patterns together into a song, and since each song is tied to a scale, you can use the transpose function to quickly create chord changes without needing to redesign your patterns.

DigiKeys was designed to drive other MIDI compatible AUv3 plugins, but comes equiped with its own internal synth engine with over 100 custom presets. If you own the 4Pockets Chameleon sampler plugin, DigiKeys will auotmatically make those instruments available to you, so its easy to expand the library of instruments using Chameleon.

The app has its own custom MIDI mixer, which controls incoming / outgoing MIDI velocity levels rather than traditional audio levels. This allows you to control relative volumes of internal as well as external MIDI instruments. It also allows DigiKeys to be used as a multi-timbral sound source with level mixing, by routing MIDI data on each of the 16 incoming ports to seperate instruments.

DigiKeys features a sophisticated random pattern generator capable of taking advantage of random velocities, probability, note length, sub beats and reverse hits. It can even randomize targetted notes that comply to a chord in the song scale.

We also include 3 global effects, reverb, chorus and digital delay which allow per track routing.

What's new in DigiKeys AUv3 Sequencer Plugin v1.01:

Added an option to remove all but the neccesary samples if using as a MIDI controller only.
Added an experimental track loop feature (see help for details).
Fixed a copy/paste pattern issue where the pattern length was not set correctly in the pasted pattern.
Fixed an issue which prevented you from swiping up to full velocity when adding notes to the top row of construction grid.
When pasting patterns you now get the choice of pasting at the start of a pattern or into the current page.
Other small bug fixes.

In addition to several official previews, The Sound Test Room did a live stream to explore DigiKeys!

-Slice sequencer: Unique and highly interactive feature allowing users to simply draw on the screen to restructure any sample.

-Smart pitch bends: Change the pitch of any or all of the channels in real-time to inspire musically apt progressions.

-Scratch: Experiment with the iconic hiphop technique by applying the effect to any sample.

*Please note Jamm Pro is a very powerful app and will perform best on newer iPads. The iPad Pro is the ideal device for the best experience with Jamm Pro.

For Ninja Tune co-founders Coldcut, known for their innovations in DJing, Remixing, Production and Live Performance, Jamm Pro has been 25 years in the making. Coldcut have been honing it in their live show and recently creating music with it.

Designed by Coldcut’s Matt Black with the aim of creating their ultimate electronic music instrument. As users experiment and develop ideas, they can save them as their own patches, which can be used to quickly build up stages of a song, structure a live performance, or used as a sketchpad.

The app features exceptional and extensive modulation and patching capabilities, the likes of which have never been seen in a sample app before. Equipped with four main channels, each with nine sequencers — six modulation sequencers, a slice sequencer, a pitch/reverse/drill sequencer and a gate sequencer — and up to 64 patches per set, Jamm Pro allows for a possible 2,304 sequencers per Sound Set in the app.

As well as production, Jamm Pro has been designed as an instrument for playing live sound, drawing on hiphop DJing and timing. With expressive touch control, the app facilitates direct engagement of hand-eye-ear coordination through ‘tip control’. This innovative feature tracks small finger movements that can be used to sensitively control various effects.

And yes Ableton Link is included!

There is a short official promo, but Nu-Trix The Synth Guy really shows it off in this review!

miRack Update

miRack, from mifki Limited, was updated with IAA MIDI. This is supposed to offer more accurate timing than with CoreMIDI when working with other apps.

What's new in miRack v2.02:

This update adds IAA MIDI support. This provides much better timing accuracy than Core MIDI when connecting other apps like sequencers to miRack (via an IAA host app).

Adam Hardyman - Borderlands 1

I'm always interested in hearing musicians explore new genres and technologies. They tend to arrive in the new lands with their own ideas, taking their work in new directions. Adam Hardyman did not disappoint on his first journey into granular synthesis. This would best be described with the oxymoron "High Energy Ambient", which managed to avoid falling into Industrial Ambient.

Video Description:

My first foray into granular synthesis with the wonderful, recently updated BORDERLANDS GRANULAR. I never really got to grips with granular synthesis so gave them all a wide berth until now....I’m just starting to get it!! (Better late than never!). So a very simple intro for me, loading in some old samples via AudioShare and seeing what can be done....it’s great fun and it’s taking me in some new musical directions (it’s a very organic process which easily flows hence this being part one of many!)
After the hectic Jamuary I’m back to my old picky self with this one! Making sure everything is ‘just so’ spending too much time on all the intricacies...which can be a good thing, but sometimes not! Loosing the flow, or essence of a piece is very easy when you fuss over every reverb, hi hat, Delay, compression etc etc.
Same with the video - every glitch timed with every effect, hopefully adding to the audio/visual thing.....but again sometimes I can get carried away - what do you think? 🤔

Some of the usual suspects here...
Gestrument Pro triggering things.
Roli NOISE, loving it for drum sounds...
Replicant2 - love how it chops everything up
Rozeta LFO modulating everything...
KlevGrand LUXE - My favourite enhancer, makes things sound great.
GrooveBox - the best way to get ideas flowing...
WoodPressor - love how this sounds on the master.
SynthMaster One - my new favourite synth for arpeggios...
BLEASS Delay - great for everything...

All edited in Luma Fusion.

Oh, also playing with the new BLEASS alpha synth - I think I like it!

As always I really appreciate feedback, love to heat your thoughts!
If you lie please ‘like’ and subscribe for more...

Thank you

P.S. who new you could use an LFO to modulate fabfilter Q3? Wonderful...😊
