iPad Music Software Preview – bleep!Box

ipad-music-software

iPad Music Software: bleep!BOX 1.2.0 – a n electronic drum/synth beat box for the iPhone, iPod touch and now the Apple iPad – has been submitted to the App Store:

1.2.0 is a universal binary, meaning it runs on both the iPad and iPhone / Touch devices using the same executable. You won’t have to buy bleep!BOX again to get it on the iPad – if you already own it on the iPhone, you can use it on the iPad and take advantage of the bigger interface. 1.2.0 has a few feature additions – a delay effect has been added to each of the Synth parts (meaning you can get individual delays for those, in addition to the existing global delay). We also made it so you can tap and drag any of the top edit buttons on the SEQ page to edit their values. This makes it possible to do quick adjustments in one gesture. I also have included a number of bug fixes and the interface overall should run faster thanks to some rendering optimizations.

I decided to make bleep!BOX work in both portrait and landscape on the iPad. This ended up taking about 12+ hours to do yesterday, but I was worried that it might not be approved if I left the current behavior of forcing the landscape orientation. Overall, I think it’s a cool feature and I’m looking forward to seeing it in action on a real device.

It looks like bleep!Box – and a lot of other iPhone apps – will be a lot more usable on the iPad. Full feature list below.

Features List

  • 10 Synth / Drum parts (aka voices)
  • Emulations of ‘classic’ x0x drum sounds (snares, hihats, claps, bassdrums, toms, cymbals)
  • Ringmod, FM, Phase Modulation, Sync
  • 50+ Parameters
  • Global delay FX
  • Soft / Hard distortion FX
  • 8 Waveforms – Saw, Square, Sine, Triangle, etc
  • Save patches and presets
  • Live performance modes – Loop / Stutter, Mute
  • Step sequencing + recording modes
  • Parameter automation
  • Realtime processing – NO SAMPLES
  • Song Mode – make songs from multiple patterns
  • WAV export
  • Pattern export / import

Check out the details below and let me know what you think!

midipad-dj-software-ipad

Here’s what the developers have to say about MIDIPad:

The striking feature of midipad is its ability to directly communicate via network-MIDI-protocol. So there is no need to install any communication-peer-software on the Mac! Simply plug-and-play via Apple Bonjour – wireless. This kind of connectivity has not been used in any similar iphone-software.

This multitouch-capable midi-controller-application communicates with your Apple Mac your Windows-based PC and even standalone hardware-synths via Wifi.

So you can control all of your music-applications with just a few finger-gestures without having to sit at your desk and no annoying cable.

In the production-environment midipad can control host-applications like Apple Logic, Steinberg Cubase/Nuendo, Ableton Live etc.

It can also be used to control stand-alone applications from companies like Native-Instruments, Spectrasonics and many more.

As a live-musician you can control sub-mixes of your virtual keyboard-rig, activate setups and change parameters of the virtual instruments or even hardware-instruments – all in realtime on stage.

If you are a DJ, you can control your favorite application wireless as well.  So you just might take a stroll through your ecstatic audience.

midipad incorporates various commonly used controller-types like buttons, trigger-pads, sliders, ribbon-control in one & two dimensions, rotary-knobs, or complete functionality blocks like transport-control.

midipad also reacts to midi-data from the connected remote computer, to provide instantaneous feedback for your performance.

Preconfigured setups, divided in seperate views can be activated concurrently.  Using multi-touch various functionality of the remote-software can be controlled. The features to be controlled can be configured by the user in the setup.
