Resurface (Improvisation for Gestrument)

August 4, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Gestrument in action, details below:

Preparation for this piece involved sorting through lots of soundfont sample sets, or fashioning new sets to import into the iPad generative sampler and touch performance tool, Gestrument. (gestrument.se/) I selected eight different sample sets and fired up Audiobus on iPad 3, plugged in the excellent new reverb AUFX:Space, piped output to Audioshare, and linked the output to Logic on a laptop.

Gestrument tip: arrange your samples in a hierarchy so it is easy to distinguish between ‘beds’ and ‘stabs’ and ‘fx.’

For me, this allows me to toggle through the main sonic content and what I think of as secondary ‘commentary.’

I pick up a feel for the generative pace of the performance and then respond intuitively. In this instance the BPM is 10, GLIDE is set to slowest, and, HOLD and CONTINUOUS PULSE is set to [on]

Introduction to Addictive Synth for iPad

July 22, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Ryan Hemeon demos another nice iPad synth, details below:

In this demo and walkthrough I show a little bit of the features of Addictive Synth by VirSyn. I like this app and find it has a great sound as well as some interesting features. The only thing I didn’t like is the inability to select Midi input apps, I recommend using MidiBridge to get your apps working if you are having problems.
