IK Multimedia intros iRing motion controller for iOS

Related: , , , , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 08, 2014 - comment 0 comments

IK Multimedia has announced iRing, the first motion-tracking controller for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch music apps and more.

IK Multimedia iRing

Now musicians, gamers, and more can trigger sounds and control effects and other parameters of their favorite apps, in real time, using hand position, freeing them from touching the screen!

iRing utilizes a wearable ring with identifiable markers, the mobile device’s front-facing camera, and advanced computer vision with highly-optimized recognition algorithms built-in to an app, to determine the precise positioning of the ring markers. The device camera picks up the positioning of the ring patterns and the apps convert that information into music commands for dedicated app or MIDI information, which any compatible music app can read. This means that a user can now operate up to six controllable music parameters in their preferred music apps with one or two hands gestures.

iRing includes two identical double-sided ring controllers, plus two free apps for music applications, which target everyone from music lovers to DJs to seasoned musicians: iRing Music Maker and iRing FX/Controller.

iRing features

  • Ring controller, in tandem with either of two included apps featuring advanced motion-tracking technology, allows remote control of iOS app and app parameters using hand gestures.
  • Great for musicians and non-musicians alike.
  • Includes two identical, two-pattern reversible rings, allowing for numerous control combinations and the control up to 6 effect parameters simultaneously with two hands.
  • Rings are unique looking, light, comfortable and provide a universal fit.
  • Included iRing Music Maker app allows novices to make music using hand gestures.
  • Included iRing FX/Controller app lets musicians and DJs create custom MIDI control setups, plus add and control audio effects when used together with other music apps via Inter-App Audio or Audiobus.

iRing will cost $24.99 USD/19.99 EUR (exc. taxes), and will be available in Q1 2014 in three colors (white, green and silver). Pre-orders are already available on the IK Multimedia online store and selected stores. iRing FX/Controller and iRing Music Maker apps will be available as free downloads from the App Store.

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 12, 2013 - comment 0 comments

IK Multimedia has announced the release of UltraTuner, a precise digital tuner app for for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

IK Multimedia UltraTuner for iOS

UltraTuner features one of the fastest, smoothest and most responsive tuning engines of all tuner apps, and is precise to well below a hundredth of a cent — far beyond human perception of pitch, making it 10 times more accurate than a mechanical strobe tuner.

UltraTuner’s precision and speed provides players and engineers with a pocket-sized professional instrument tuner always at hand and offers two basic modes of operation: Stage and Studio. When in Stage mode, UltraTuner is a straightforward, ultra-accurate instrument tuner featuring a unique, simple interface that’s very easy to see in low light conditions. In studio mode, UltraTuner provides pitch tracking – allowing players to monitor pitch over time. This is especially useful in the studio for monitoring pitch of non-chromatic instruments like vocals, violin and brass etc., on recordings over time, and very useful for vocal and instrument pitch training.

In the settings window, players can quickly calibrate the “A” note, set the temperament type, set the root key for tracking and adjust the audio sensitivity. UltraTuner can use the device’s built-in microphone for audio input, and works with all analog or digital audio interfaces for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, like IK’s iRig HD, iRig PRO and the iRig MIC series of products.

UltraTuner features

  • Innovative patented tuning engine that provides the highest level of responsiveness and accuracy with 0.01 cent resolution.
  • Dual Mode: Stage and Studio.
  • Large Tuning indication visible from a distance (stage mode).
  • Tuning History to see the tuning variations over time (studio mode).
  • Temperament selection includes: Equal, Pythagorean, Just Major, 1/4 Comma Mean Tone, Kimberger III, Werckmeister III, Young and Kellner.
  • Useful not only for tuning, but also for non-chromatic instrument training.

UltraTuner is available to purchase as a standalone app from the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch for $4.99 USD / 4.49 EUR, or as an in-app purchase within AmpliTube for iPhone (Free/LE/Full versions), and AmpliTube for iPad (Free/Full versions).
