Kirnu has announced Cream Mobile, a new arpeggiator application for iPad devices.
Cream Mobile is an arpeggiator intended to be used with external keyboards or sequencers to control its internal synth or external synths.
Cream Mobile can also be used as a scratch pad for creating new songs using arpeggios and phrases.
It is described as a very powerful application with very precise audio/MIDI engine. It includes all necessary technologies every music app should have these days: Audiobus (generator), network, virtual MIDI ports, MIDI sync with host and slave mode, MIDI learn.
Cream Mobile features
- 4 independent tracks which can be assigned to different key range and MIDI in/out.
- 12 patterns per track.
- Drum track with 50 high quality drum loops from Sample Magic.
- Very powerful internal 2 OSC synthesizer for every 4 tracks.
- Two different views: Classic and quick edit view.
- Control Zone for changing most important parameters via external keyboard or MIDI events.

Moot Booxlé presents “Arprider”. A Synthesizers.com Electro Jam. This video demonstrates how the Synthesizers.com Q175 Arpeggiator syncs perfectly with a computer DAW environment. Logic Pro 9 is sending a pulse of 16th notes from a software synth which is being fed to the Q118 Instrument Interface module, which then feeds the Q175’s Clock Input. It syncs perfectly to the computer’s tempo as Moot grooves along to a sampled Oberheim DMX drum machine.
Detailed patch demonstration follows the performance.

Drew Neumann (www.drewneumann.com/DN_Bio.php) took 002’s arpegiator out for a trip, and ended up producing this wonderful seven and a half minute demo! In Drew’s words, “This was just messing around with the 002 in real time to a Sound Devices 702T, then reassembled in 4 tracks in Digital Performer. A light dusting of FX here and there, but it’s JUST 002.“ Enjoy.

scttr is a collision-based arpeggiator. Placing pulse emitters in a 2D plane enables you to intuitively create and manipulate rhythmic structures, ranging from simple patterns to polyrhythmic mayhem. Subtle parameter changes can result in startling, sometimes unpredictable results, while always maintaining sonic coherence.
It was designed as a creative software instrument/sound generator for live performances and improvisational modular setups.
The PRO version will feature MIDI support, control over sound parameters and advanced particle control parameters.

ARPIO is a new musical instrument designed to play arpeggios*. Move up-and-down the matrix to set the pattern’s speed, or left-and-right to set its pitch. Tilt the device to control volume and pitchbend, or shake for vibrato.
A similar version of ARPIO is available on iOS devices, under the name Arpeggionome (http://arpeggionomepro.com)
*An arpeggio is a musical technique where notes in a chord are played in sequence, rather than ringing out simultaneously.

BRANDNEW WALDORF PULSE 2
1st Encounter Session Outtake
Pulse 2 Analog Synthesizer is proof positive that good things can come to those who wait. For ever since this high-quality synthesizer developer discontinued its original rack-mountable Pulse and Pulse+ programmable analogue monosynths boasting ballsy bass tones and legendary leads beyond compare, those Nineties electronic music dominating sounds have been severely sought-after by those in the know. Which was exactly what drove us into development overdrive to produce an all-new Pulse fit for the 21st Century.
As an all-new, all-analogue synthesizer design, Pulse 2 flawlessly delivers exactly what synth connoisseurs around the world have been truly craving for quite some time — three analogue oscillators living in perfect harmony with a VCF (VoltageControlled Filter), yet we did not stop there: the fresh filter circuits in the Pulse 2 now offer 12dB Highpass and Bandpass modes in addition to 24dB/12dB Lowpass for strengthened sound-sculpting flexibility, while we added analogue Filter FM, two Overdrive circuits, and Ring Modulation from OSC 3, together with Paraphonic and Unison modes allowing up to eight-voice chords — a fantastic feature found on our recently-released Rocket Synthesizer.
