MikroWave – music sequencer for Android now w/ renewed audio engine

June 26, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Demo of MikroWave 1.5.0 running on a Asus Nexus 7 tablet (though it will run fine on mobile phones as well). As of this version, the audio engine has been overhauled to run in a native layer for high performance audio with low latency (the delay between an action and hearing the result).

Devices running Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) should benefit greatly with an extra increase in performance, while the application runs from Android 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) upwards.

You can try it for free (NO ads, NO time limits) on Google Play:

Touchscreen Sequencer Test

May 27, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This is a quick demo of Yet Another Touchscreen Music App.

“I’m trying to come up with a global live performance / songwriting app for the touch interface, and this is my seventh attempt. Definitely getting closer. Still have to add the sound-sculpting interface; this is just a quick demo of the step sequencer scene switching.”

Android music creation: Syntheogen Quick Start

May 22, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This demonstration video will help you get started. It will show you how to create a very simple loop, then it will use that loop to create the intro for a simple song.

NOTE: There is a small mistake at 1:47; where the captions mention ‘notes’, they should instead reference ‘beats’. This will be fixed soon!

Syntheogen is a music sequencer and synthesizer for Android phones and tablets, developed from the ground-up to run smoothly on mobile devices and designed to be accessible to all users, even beginners. Syntheogen produces techno, drum & bass, and other electronic styles; it can also produce backing tracks with hip hop or synthpop sounds.

The current version is a beta release; it has been tested internally, but this is its first exposure to the public, so you might find a few bugs. A finished, ‘stable’ release will be available soon!

Teeter – Tangible Sequencing Instrument

May 20, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This turntable based, free-time sequencer uses laser reflections to detect the distance of pegs as they pass by a camera and in turn trigger samples.
Programmed in Max/Msp, the PS3Eye camera calculates the distance of objects based on where the red dot reflection of the laser is on the y-axis of its lens. Up to 8 steps can be tracked reliably across the y-axis, with timing left completely free to the user to place pegs adhering to the visual grid or not.

Roland MSQ-700, Bit 99 and TR-505

May 19, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Jamming with the Roland MSQ-700, a simple but effective hardware sequencer from 1984. A (Crumar) Bit 99 offers the synth sounds, and a Roland TR-505 provides the beat.
In the days before DAWs, hardware sequencers were often used to build the structure of synth-based songs of the ’80s.

Getting started with mSequencer

May 16, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Here is a tutorial on how to get started with mSequencer (MIDI Pattern Sequencer). In this video I use mSequencer to control all 8 channels of Korg’s iPolySix via virtual midi. This video doesn’t even begin to touch what a great app this is. If there is interest in it, I will definitely be making more videos on some of the more advanced procedures you can use as well as a lot of other options I couldn’t get to in this video.

I highly recommend using an external midi controller with this app to build your sequences.

Conclusion: This is an excellent app for anyone wanting to program midi sequences and send them to apps via virtual midi. It gives you a larger range of control then any other sequencer app I have ever used. This app does not support Audiobus but it definitely should. Well worth it’s price.

Grab this app on the AppStore: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/midi-…

Expanders for Turing Machine Random Looping Sequencer

May 3, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Two DIY expander modules for the RLS from Music Thing Modular. Pulses produces seven pulse outputs, related to the master clock and controlled by the main module. Voltages (with the faders) is an eight step sequencer where multiple steps can be active at once, creating very unpredictable patterns.

Patch details:
One pulse output is pulsing the white noise from the RLS module through a QMMG low pass gate, creating the kick drum sound at the start.
The two outputs (normal and inverted) from the voltages module are going into a A156 quantizer, then into two sizes of a DPO oscillator. Each time the note changes, the sine wave outputs are gated through the QMMG.
One more output from the pulse module is triggering the FM bus on the DPO, causing the bleeps and bloops.
