September 23, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

scalegen

ScaleGen for iPad – described as ‘the ultimate tool for musicians who want to explore new ways of thinking about music.’

ScaleGen is a tool for organizing pitches into custom scales and tunings. It lets you create and audition scales within the app, and then export it as a MIDI file or to their gestural music app Gestrument.

It goes far beyond mainstream types of scales, letting you experiment with up to 24 notes per octave, use historical and experimental microtonal tuning and even scales that are different in each octave, like the overtone series.

ScaleGen – musical scales redefined

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scale…

You think you know what a scale is – think again. In ScaleGen you can do all that you would traditionally imagine when it comes to scales and pitch organisation, and then much, much more.

This is the perfect tool for experimental composers in any genre as well as for musicians who want to explore new ways of thinking about music. The educational aspects of how pitches can be organised makes ScaleGen a must have for serious music students. But the directness of the app makes the learning both fun and artistically developing.

Define or change scales in the most detailed and intricate way. Audition the scales you make from within the app or export it as a MIDI file or use our iOS app Gestrument to try them out.

This is the tool for anyone who wants to go beyond the traditional tonalities in whichever genre you choose. ScaleGen comes with predefined scales of all kinds – from the traditional Western scales and early music scales to Asian scales from India, Indonesia and elsewhere.

Arturia has not officially communicated this yet, but it seems like they’ve got a new iPad synth on the way, iProphet.

According to leaked information that is making the rounds, iProphet is a recreation of the classic Sequential Circuits Prophet VS. The iProphet uses Vector synthesis to create its sounds, which allows for timbrel modulation. The raw sound can then be processed through a multimode filter and output effects.

Official specifications, pricing and availability are to be announced.

After a full year of development, we’re excited to release a new iPad Touchscreen Device Editor for Ableton – called PULL.

In a nutshell, this software allows you to edit fullscreen versions of every ableton device from your iPad . It follows any device that is currently selected and displays a very large, multi-touch template on the iPad for editing.

We noticed that while there are some great controllers for Ableton, most of these lack intuitiveness when editing devices (only allowing you to edit the 8 banks of parameters at a time, using generic knobs).

PULL is set to change this, providing much larger, full screen, multi-touch versions that are designed to look just like Ableton devices.

The software uses a combination of Ableton, Max for live and the Lemur iPad app to achieve this.
