Background video description:
I’ve gotten a lot of requests to describe my process for developing bass lines and Acid lead lines. In this video I attempt to do that! ReBirth is an excellent app to demonstrate both. I even throw in some details on working out drum patterns. Along with tips for playing Acid live. I tried to keep this as Squelch-lite as possible so as to avoid driving non-acid fans crazy.

What’s better than making music? Making music with a friend of course! And doing it instead of working, like Kalle and Mattias…
With ReBirth for iPad’s Duo mode two people can make squelchy techno music on the same iPad. Connect ReBirth to other equipment with MIDI Sync, or enable WIST sync to bring Figure or other WIST-enabled apps into the mix.
“In this video you can hear the fusion of the two worlds:
Digital vs Analog
Thanks to the latest update of ReBirth can be synchronized via midi
I love both analog as digital …”
ReBirth – the seminal software studio – has gotten some love from Propellerhead, with a new update.
Here’s what’s new in ReBirth 1.3:
- Duo Mode – flip instruments around and jam with a friend on the same iPad
- MIDI sync – sync ReBirth to your DAW, MIDI hardware or other apps
- Background mode – keep ReBirth playing in the background when slaved to other apps
- SoundCloud Sharing – share your ReBirth music on SoundCloud
- iTunes export – export your track to iTunes on your computer
- Various bug fixes and performance enhancements
Propellerhead describes ReBirth as a ‘Techno Micro Composer’, emulating three of the backbone devices of electronic dance music: the Roland TB-303 Bass synth and the Roland TR-808 and 909 drum machines.
A quick comparison of Retronyms TableTop TT-303 and Propellerheads ReBirth on the iPad.
“They sound like the same synth engine to me 😉 What do you think?”

Back to the old school music with Propellerhead Rebirth on Ipad : made this new song Wild Nights (Techno / dance), while in the train with my Ipad2.
Just enjoying to play with this nice little application and hope to see reason coming!
