MusicDevelopments updates RapidComposer to v1.9 + Birthday Sale

MusicDevelopments RapidComposer

MusicDevelopments has updated its RapidComposer music prototyping and automated composition software, and announced a limited time birthday sale.

RapidComposer is two years old! To celebrate this event we hold a birthday sale with 20% discount until April 20th. The sale applies to the OS X version too, which is to be released at the end of April. All existing and new customers will get the OS X version free of charge, as well as all 2.xx versions.

Changes in RapidComposer v1.9

  • Improved drag and drop experience; phrases/chords/scales are rendered into a small image that is shown during dragging.
  • New preference: it is possible to disable selecting phrases from multiple tracks.
  • New preference: using flats instead of sharps in chord names.
  • A status window is displayed during loading a composition as the initialization of some VSTi plug-ins may take long.
  • Scrollwheel works over lists and sliders.
  • Some minor changes in keyboard commands to match the OS X version; left and right Shift/Ctrl is not distinguished. The biggest change is the direct access of underlying chord/scale notes: instead of pressing Right Ctrl, you should press Ctrl+Shift.
  • Bug fix: crash during resizing the window fixed.

RapidComposer is available to purchase for $236 USD (regular $295 USD) until April 20th, 2012.

AfroDJMac celebrates 1 Year of Ableton Live Packs with AfroDJRack #52 “Korg-asbord”

AfroDJMac has released Korg-asbord, the 52nd download in the weekly series of free Ableton Live Packs.

This week’s download features 5 different synths for Ableton. The first three come from a song I have been working on called “This is on Your Mind.” I created the sounds using the Korg iMS-20 iPad app and brought them into Ableton to finish the track. They feature a thick gritty bass sound, a cutting lead sound and some dirty drums. I would say they have a somewhat 8-bit feel.

The fourth synth was made with a sample of the Korg Monotron Duo, supplied by one of my readers, Hamtone. This synth is made of two different Monotron Duo samples and a sine wave sub bass sampled from Ableton’s Operator. Finally, as a special bonus, the last one is a sampled upright bass synth that was sent in by another one of my readers JM-DG. It’s an amazing instrument that I think is so well done and useful that I am releasing it exactly as he sent it to me.

The Korg-asbord Live Pack is available to download from AfroDJMac.
