The Loop Loft Long Loops

The Loop Loft has announced the release of Long Loops Vol 3, a new MIDI pack featuring grooves designed to make your drum patterns sound as human as possible.

Are you tired of working with short, 1 to 2 bar loops? Do you find yourself altering loop patterns or manually programming fills for song transitions? Then Long Loops is the MIDI release you’ve been waiting for.

Recorded live by a top studio drummer, Long Loops features grooves ranging in length from 4 to 16 bars, with each loop containing slight “human” variations throughout the beat and appropriate fills in the last measure of each phrase. The result? You can now quickly build up entire verses, chorus, hooks and breakdowns by simply dragging and dropping a single loop into your arrangement.

The pack is available for purchase for $29 USD.

Roland AIRA

Roland has announced that the entire AIRA family has been updated to version 1.1, introducing exciting and useful new features requested by users from around the globe.

Easy to install and free for all users, this AIRA update includes enhancements for the whole line, such as backup and restore facilities, and better overall MIDI management. It also provides a wealth of product-specific enhancements, such as external MIDI pitch control for VT-3, tuning control for TB-3, and instrument gain control for TR-8.

With roots in the very origins of electronic music, the AIRA line is designed to meet the evolving needs of today’s electronic musicians. In the studio or on the stage, AIRA brings genre-defining sound and modern performance features to a new generation. The first four products introduced in the AIRA series include the TR-8 Rhythm Performer, TB-3 Touch Bassline, VT-3 Voice Transformer, and SYSTEM-1 PLUG-OUT Synthesizer.

At the heart of AIRA is the newly developed Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) that faithfully captures the sound and feel of some of Roland’s most revered classics. ACB is the technology behind the authentic sound and responsive behavior of the AIRA products. It utilizes original design specs, consultation with original engineers, and a detailed part-by-part analysis of each analog circuit using Roland’s collection of pristinely archived drum machines and synthesizers.

The updates are now available to download from Roland.

PSOFT releases PSOFT Audio Player for iPhone

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

PSOFT has announced the release of PSOFT Audio Player, a multipurpose music player app for iPhone/iPod touch.

PSOFT Audio Player

PSOFT Audio Player is a special music player with which you can modify the sound however you like. It allows you to apply to the audio data various types of signal transformations in real-time, such as changing the playing speed and key, removing or extracting sound from a specified band, analyzing the musical scale and displaying chords, etc.

The app stands out due to its remarkable audio quality. With usual audio devices, changes to the key and playing speed almost always result in a noticeable degradation of the audio quality. However, by using our company’s “PhaseGear” technology, this app succeeds in reducing audio degradation to its utmost minimum. The result is surprisingly natural-sounding audio.

Use the app for all kinds of tasks such as ear training or language study by slowing down the playing speed, creating karaoke tracks by removing the vocals from the original track, listening to podcasts more efficiently by increasing the playing speed, etc.

The app is available for purchase for $7.99 USD.
