Another short review of the Ableton Live controller...

Here is a short review of the Ableton Live controller. It is made using a iPad but the Android version is the same...
To read the review go here:
Do not post much music anymore but always think that it is interesting when it is the developer that made the music.
Here is the YouTube description:
I produced this Instrumental Remake of the Daredevil Title Beautiful Crime by Grayson Sanders (Tamer) as a showcase for uFXloops and to express my feelings for this epic song. This version has been produced from the first note to the final production on a Samsung Galaxy S4 with uFXloops. The only post processing was to convert it to mp3 from ogg.
Some time ago a SunVox user under the name of WaxingAndWaning started to post links to XI instruments to use in the SunVox sampler but instead of one velocity layer there is five of them but each in a separate sampler making it possible to program different velocity hits of the instruments. This is a good thing but not fully convenient to have five instruments and to program them in different tracks.
After a couple of posts another user- iaon took one of the instruments and packed it up into one metamodule with all the velocities mapped out in one instrument.
This sounds like a small thing but it is now one of the hidden great music apps for Android and this could have been big news if somebody released just this aspect of SunVox as a standalone application.
Because it means that there is now possible on Android to do fully professional sample instruments. It is also possible to use modules inside the metamodule to make round robin hits to if so desired! Admittedly it is a bit of work. But to do the velocity based instruments using iaon's module as blueprint it is easy, and maybe start to make WaxingAndWaning's other XI instruments into one metamodule as well and of course to start to make your own velocity based sample instruments.
If somebody had the energy and time it could be of financial interest to make some more advanced SunVox sample instruments to sell?
This is iaons explanation but would recommend to download it and take a look inside to fully grasp what is going on...
So here's the MetaModule containing the five JRhodes XIs. Each one is triggered in about a fifth of the velocity range:
You can always change these by editing the MM, resetting the Velocity curves on the MultiSynths for each XI and removing all the unwanted input velocities for each one, making sure every value plays exactly one of them.
The MM has volume controllers for the individual XIs that can be adjusted to refine the transitions between them. An easy way to check these is to play the MM from a MultiSynth and repeatedly play a note or a chord while changing the Velocity slider (standard transitions at values 52-104-156-206).
To use this as a template for other instruments, replace the samplers (copy/delete MultiSynths and set their ranges if more/less are needed) and make sure the user defined controllers still refer correctly.
If you go to the Download page you will find the iaon sample instrument and there is access to the other WaxingAndWaning instruments as well-
Here is a link to the Forum thread-
Guess it does not cost anything as a developer to take a look what is promised in this Audio SDK? It is in some circumstances for free to use-

G-Stomper Studio, Rhythm and VA-Beast 4.2 went live today.
This new release finally allows full MIDI control of all modules in the application. It also comes with MIDI learn functionality, which makes life much easier when using external MIDI controllers. Be sure to check out the updated MIDI Documentation.
So to read the review of the knobs that stick directly to your device for some controller action go here:
Hmm. This came out some weeks ago and could be interesting if you need to sketch out some ideas? One of the selling points is the midi export and direct recording...

Saw this interview some time ago but must say that the condensed version is much better!
The same developer that made MusicBox3D that got mentioned some weeks ago have recently released this one to that is a experimental sequencer type of app. It is described as this:
This app is an audio-visual synthetizer based on harmonic motion, it enables to explore a physical simulation of pendulum oscillations through random motion, beating, travelling waves or standing waves are at the tips of your finger.Parameters of the simulation such as synchronisation or travelling speed are tweakable. Sound parameters will enable you to explore several harmonic mapping from consonant to most 'bizarre' ones.
It can be used for interesting recordings and it is for free.
Will also mention that the developer also have a older application that I never mentioned called
Springsv3 and Springs that is possible to see in action after the Phase Pendulum video.
This is the latest track that I finished yesterday under the name MoonooM. It is made mostly in SunVox using some Sound generators and using SunVox samplers for Basstation (the nineties version) samples and Cello instruments. Added percussion plus some more effects in the mixing in Reaper. So not a full SunVox production as the percussion would have been too much to do in SunVox...
So IK Multimedia will release a interface for Android that will work on Android 4,2 or over and Amplitube will be for free with some amplifiers etc in combination with the interface called
iRig UA. The release is set for May but it is possible to test the Amplitube with demo riffs as can be seen in one of the videos below.
Here is the Play Store info:
Your guitar tone on your Android phone - A complete professional guitar & bass multi-effects processor for all Android smartphone and tablet devicesAmpliTube UA is the revolutionary free companion app to iRig UA. It lets you turn any Android device* into the ultimate mobile guitar and bass multi-effects processor. With it, you can enjoy the high-quality sonic sculpting flexibility that’s made AmpliTube the go-to app for mobile musicians. Now you can finally harness the power of AmpliTube’s massive and expandable collection of ultra-realistic virtual amplifiers, stompbox effects, cabinets and more on your Android phone, no matter what make or model it is.
AmpliTube UA is a free and comes with a complete assortment of meticulously recreated virtual versions of some of the most coveted gear on the planet. It comes with 21 pieces of gear (free for iRig UA users), that can be expanded up to 43 by in app purchases. You get 9 effects: Noise Filter, Delay, Overdrive, Wah, Chorus, Flanger, Phazer and Octave (plus Distortion upon registration). You can then use these stomps with 5 amplifiers with matching cabinets: Lead, Clean, Bass, Crunch and Metal. You even get two microphones (dynamic and condenser) that you can use to virtually position and mike your setup. In other words, it gives you everything you need to create killer tone no matter whether you’re looking to shred like Slash and Jimi Hendrix™ or play more mellow jazz, country or folk — the possibilities are limitless. And, as if that wasn’t enough, you can also expand AmpliTube UA with a-la-carte gear and bundles from world-class brands like Fender®, Orange®, Ampeg®, Soldano® and more. There’s also exclusive content available from our AmpliTube Slash and AmpliTube Jimi Hendrix™ collections.
To get the most out of AmpliTube UA, you need to pair it with an iRig UA digital audio interface. Combined, the two give musicians the power to play in real-time with no audible device processing delay, a market first for the Android platform.iRig UA’s on-board digital signal processor works in conjunction with AmpliTube UA. And because all of the processing is handled by iRig UA, and not on the Android device, it’s able to provide consistent zero latency performance (down to 2ms round-trip total latency) independent of the make and model of the connected smartphone or tablet.
You can use AmpliTube UA functions in a “preview” mode when an iRig UA is not connected to the device. This allows full use of its generous collection of amplifiers, stompboxes, cabinets and microphones with the provided “dry” audio demo. However, an iRig UA is required for audio-in and guitar processing functionality.
• First real time guitar and bass mobile multi-effects app for all Android devices
• Zero latency processing on any Android device* when paired with iRig UA
• Full rig with 3 simultaneous stomp boxes, an amp with effects, a cabinet and a mic
• Comes with 9 stompbox effects, 5 amplifiers, 5 cabinets and 2 mics
• Gear library can be expanded with branded gear from Fender, Orange, Ampeg, Soldano and more
• Enhanced presets system
• Chromatic tuner included
• Can be used without iRig UA in a fully functional mode that does not allow audio-in (a dry audio demo is provided for playing purposes)
Not really a fan of posting sample packs but as these are both nice and professional grade free packs, that are both funky and useful for when there is a time to use these specific types of sound. When listening to the Kung FU sounds can not help but think Wu-tang Clan and their early albums!
There was no pre-listening of the Cartoon sounds to share outside of the web page but they do sound very good and classic as in Tom and Jerry, Roadrunner etc.
The website is a for free sample packs and have not listened to the other ones but they are totally free and there is no need to sign up or anything just press download- Clean looking site and not even pop ups or other irritating shady stuff.
To get them:
The developers of n-Track Studio is behind this and i tis in Beta for iOS users but you can sign up here to ask to become a Beta tester for Android when it arrives:
