For musicians, vDjs, and others.
What is it?
An audio and image sequencer.
How it works?
You have a board. This board can be divided in x zones (x because I don’t know the maximum of divisions. A lot…). Each division can play a loop. A loop contains 4 sequencers. 1 to 32 steps sequencer. 1 for images and 3 for the audio. For the image, it uses .glsl files. (A GLSL Object is an object in the OpenGL API that encapsulates the compiled or linked Shaders that execute portions of the OpenGL Pipeline. These objects represent code written in the OpenGL Shading Language (GLSL). If you know how to program a .glsl file you will be able to edit it within the App. If not, there are a lot of images in the built in library. So, you have the 8 tracks sequencers. (Same for the audio). It works like most of all the sequencer. (Tap to add an event, again to delete, drag to set the length,…) You can load 1 image per track. You can also set the background colour and the transition duration. For each image, 7 parameters to set, or automatise with the sequencer or control with your finger. 1, 2 or 3 fingers. (x & y. Axis).
For the 3 Audio sequencers. Also 8 tracks. (Import audio from Audio Share or AudioCopy). 11 effects: Flanger, Gate, Delay, Reverb, Low & High Pass, Lowshelf & HighShelf, Parametric Filter, Clipper & Limiter. All the parameters can be automatised, set or control with your finger! It’s awesome!
1 loop = 34 audio tracks + 8 animations tracks + ?
The input! The built in microphone or an Audiobus input! K Mashine comes with the Ableton Link feature…
Before to conclude… a 3 band EQ and a compressor (master out), a lot of sharing features, the community, record and share a video without the UI,,..
And more. Check out the tutorial below.
To conclude. A very very good surprise! This App is awesome! Really! And very easy to use! A Must Have for vDJ. A Must Have for musicians too! (Even if you don't use the image sequencer.... can you imagine, a board with 100 Loops ready to play with all the parameters adjustable with you fingers...). A Must Have for live performances…
a Must Have,
a Killer App!
A Must Have!
A note: I don't know if this App is famous or not, downloaded a lot or not...
I hope so! Because this App is AWESOME!
