In the second part of this two-part video tutorial, Dubspot instructor and course designer Matt Shadetek shows how to control an arpeggiator in Logic’s Environment using the iPad as a second monitor.
In this video we’ll continue using the iPad as a touchscreen controller and look at how to apply this. If you missed part one of this tutorial please check it out first, it explains how to set up the Air Display app which will allow wireless connection of your iPad to your Mac or PC.
In this example we’re going to use Logic’s Environment to set up an arpeggiator with large buttons that toggle between different resolutions or arpeggiator rates. We’ll learn how to map MIDI control change data to the arpeggiator in the Environment and how to create large visual controls to send that data. We’ll take a look at using the button object in the Environment to send MIDI control change data, a technique which could be applied to many different workflows. The goal of the video, beyond the specific application, is to get you thinking creatively about ways to manipulate MIDI data in Logic’s Environment to create unique musical tools and customize your own setup. – Matt Shadetek

“We got our hands on Yonac’s miniSynth 2 yesterday and fell in love! Werkbench jam starts at 2:07.”
WerkBench is a new and unique type of beatbox that is part loop pedal, part drum machine, and 100% beat-making magic. At the heart of WerkBench are two sequencers that let you instantly sample sounds into any place in the rhythm and then alter those sounds in real-time.
miniSynth 2 continues the spirit of the original, adding advancements we made in DSP, design and features over the last half decade. Simple and easy to use, miniSynth 2 projects a solid, fat tone from a strategic feature set — an “abbreviation” of the sophisticated features we offer in our pro-grade synthesizers. Like all our synthesizers, no compromises are made with sound and functionality. There are NO samples used, just real-time virtual analog synthesis. miniSynth 2 also includes production-friendly features, such as Audiobus output, audio copy/paste, and a MIDI In port for playing miniSynth with an external controller or a virtual-MIDI app.
A demo, sound test and intergration with Audiobus and Cubasis for the excellent MiniSynth 2 from Yonac. A new version of their classic Minisynth from 2008..look how far we have come..
Caelestis sends MIDI messages to two other apps, Arctic Keys and Magellan.
Caelestis is a unique, sample based generative music app that creates sounds with bouncing balls. Three shapes on the screen are used as ‘rooms’ that contain a sound. Different coloured balls can be thrown around inside these rooms, generating notes when one collides with a side. Using different combinations of balls and sounds, all kinds of beautiful performances can be achieved.

A quick composition using the iElectribe app on the iPad.
The piece was ‘composed’ using the nanoKONTROL as a midi control surface for the sound control functions of the app and then as a pseudo ‘mixer’ for the video ‘performance’.
Synced MPC 500 to the Tenori-On iOS app and sequenced some stuff.

Background video description:
A demo of 3 iMini’s running in Tabletop, with a iMPC playing a beat, then AC into Audiobus and Cubasis. It’s also a test video for better sound quality and picture quality as we had a few comments about having better sound, hope this is OK..
