Being a arpeggiator that can play very short arpeggios it emulates the sound from tracker software that wanted to emulate chords but the original trackers only having four tracks and playing notes monophonically the only way to emulate chords was to decide the notes in the arpeggio and then they would be played in rapid succession making a sound that is very specific for chiptune and early computer music using trackers.
Also being able to have up to eight notes in any position and deciding the playback speed
( making it possible to use in a more traditional way ) makes this arpeggiator very flexible.
Just wanted to point this out if you have missed out on MikroWave and are interested in making Chiptune sounds. Of course Mikrowave is not only for Chiptune music but it is now in my eyes one of the better apps for making those kind of sounds if one is willing.
Sorry for going on about an older update but felt that it is worth pointing out as it can easily be missed looking into the app...
Here is the latest update:
- improved multi touch response for keyboard
- on tablets you can now adjust synth parameters while simultaneously playing the keyboard for quick improvising or live performance!
- incremental adjustments to tempo are now visible
- miscellaneous bugfixes for stability and audio performance
The app is cheap and a good addition to whatever synthesizers / sequencers already installed as it can be used for live tweaking, basic song making and the synthesizer engine and effects sounds good complementing other apps.
There is also a free version with saving disabled.
