Sobal Corporation has been busy! They now have two free apps up on iTunes, that are actually worthwhile. Perhaps even more surprising, they a worthwhile free apps that aren't trying to hit you up for In-App Purchases!
First up, Rhythm Composer, got an update bringing in support for AudioCopy as well as Virtual MIDI. This elaborate groove-machine app has support for up to 64 patterns, making it one of the most versatile rhythm apps. This is right up there with the $20 iElectribe, including similar features such as instrument sound shaping and effects. It is limited too only a few samples, but I'm blown away by the fact that this is free.
Here are the complete details for both:
- 10 PCM sound sources (Kick, Snare, Perc1, Perc2, Perc3, Perc4, HHopen, HHclose, Hit1, Hi2)
- Tempo (40-280 bpm), Tap Tempo, Swing, Groove functions
- Step Sequencer (up to 64 steps)
- Various Part Effect functions (Compressor, Roller)
- Various Master Effect functions (Delay, BPM Delay, Compressor, Distortion, Chorus / Flanger, LPF, Slicer, Roller)
- Audio Export function
- Real-Time Recoding function
- Wireless Sync-Start Technology (WIST) is supported
- AudioCopy is supported - CoreMIDI is supported
This is a really impressive feature set for free apps!
