An App that I really love…
An old one.
5 modules. A Midi Drum & Bass loop player. (33 loop styles). For the Drum module: a cut-off, a resonance, a bit shift (with A bits and rate parameters). For the Bass, an Octave selector, 4 waveforms types, a bitshift, a cut-off, a resonance and an ADSR. Also a switch to lock the Bass on the root note. A melodic keyboard (ribbon) named Strum located on the right side with an Octave selector, 4 waveforms types, a bitshift, a cut-off, a resonance and an ADSR, a Tremolo depth and speed, a pitch wheel stiffness and a switch to enable a touch pressure with a pressure gain. 16 scale types are available. (The scale key will follow the Chord you are playing). The Chord module comes with the same parameters excepted for the scale. You select a Major and minor Chord as well as the root note above the 9 big Chord's Knobs (Pads) available. A knob allows you to play 8 chords types. To finish an Arpeggiator with 4 waveforms types, a volume slider, cut-off, a resonance and an ADSR, a Bitshift, a Rhythm selection menu and a Arpeggiator type: Random, Up, Down, Up Down.
This is all for the modules. A Mixer is also available (Volume only). You can save your setting (Palettes), record your performances and share them to Soundcloud. Four switches allows you to recall a Palette but there is a bug here. You can also change the colour of the UI but there is also a bug here.
All the modules can send MIDI notes to another App. This turns polychord into a Chord Midi Controller Too! A Powerful one! For the sound, I love it. I really really love it so much that I used it a long time ago to create a soundtrack for a TV documentary…. I love this App! I really love it.
I didn't make its review at this time, but if I had done it, sure that I would have rated it as a Killer App for Composers. For beginners also because of its ease to use. With the Midi out feature and the last update that made it an iOS 11 ready App, it becomes a Must Have too!.
