Steinberg Cubasis

Steinberg has released version 1.8.3 of Cubasis, a sequencer app for iOS.

Cubasis is Steinberg’s streamlined, multitouch sequencer for the iPad. Specially designed for quick and easy operation, Cubasis makes recording, editing and mixing a breeze. You can also open your Cubasis projects in Cubase under Windows and OS X! Cubasis places touch-intuitive production tools in your hands, opening up a new world of possibilities for your creativity.

Changes in Cubasis v1.8.3

  • Implements latest Audiobus SDK (v2.1.5).
  • MediaBay folders remember their state.
  • Loading times of projects (subsequent loads) and undo/redo times have been greatly improved.
  • Inserting Cubasis as input and output in Audiobus now works as expected again.
  • Fixes a problem where triggering Cubasis with specific hardware controllers could lead to hanging and missing notes.
  • Fixes an issue where the use of sustain led to hanging notes.
  • Deleted audio events will now be restored correctly when performing Undo or project renaming tasks.
  • Solves a critical issue where performing Undo on an edited audio file could result in data loss.
  • Fixes a problem where trimmed audio events could not be restored to their original state.
  • Cycle playback in audio editor now works as expected.
  • Changing the locator position in the audio editor no longer results in start of playback.
  • Fixes a rare issue where the playback in the audio editor could be started twice simultaneously.
  • Playhead located in audio editor remains in its current position once playback has been stopped.
  • Fixes a graphical issue that appeared at maximum magnification in the audio editor.
  • The audio editor’s rewind button no longer triggers a playhead preview sound.
  • Fixes a problem where selecting no instrument on an audio track renders Cubasis unreliable.
  • Dropping files from the MediaBay onto frozen tracks is no longer possible.
  • Fixes a problem where file renaming with special characters (such as emoticons) could lead to missing audio files.
  • Undo steps remain available once a project has been renamed.
  • Fixes a rare problem where no audio event is created after audio has been recorded.
  • Glueing MIDI parts no longer restores hidden events.
  • Switching from bars to seconds and performing zoom and scroll gestures no longer leads to fade out of the audio editor ruler labels.
  • Several In-App help iOS 8 improvements.
  • Scrolling the In-App help content on devices with iOS 8 now works as expected.
  • Fixes an intermittent issue on devices with iOS 8 where the home button of the In-App help became non-functional.
  • Fixes a rare problem where the Audiobus panel remained empty (app icons and controls were missing).
  • AudioCopy rendered Cubasis unreliable.
  • Use of Undo/redo lead in some cases to loss of audio file data.
  • A problem with the positioning of automation events has been solved.
  • Help typo correction.

The app is available for purchase for $49.99 USD.

Tempo Rubato releases Historic Harpsichords – Ruckers 1628 for iOS

Tempo Rubato has launched Ruckers 1628, a superbly-sampled recreation of one of the greatest and most valuable harpsichords of all time.

Tempo Rubato Ruckers 1628

Flemish instrument-building family Ruckers need little in the way of introduction to those in the know; suffice to say, their highly-valued (and valuable) historic harpsichords are akin to Stradivarius violins built by the Stradivari family. You could even say that the harpsichord was the ‘synthesizer’ of its time, without which influential early musical stylings such as baroque and renaissance would never have emerged.

Needless to say, 1628 must have been an especially excellent year for the Ruckers family, for the Ruckers 1628 is now one of the greatest and most valuable harpsichords of all time. Those thinking that they will never get to experience the sheer musical joy of playing this two-manual harpsichord built by master craftsman Andreas Ruckers (The Elder) in Antwerp way back in 1628 should surely think again.

Thanks to the definitive development work of TempoRubato in collaboration with sample content provider par excellence realsamples, now you can conveniently enjoy playing an authentic recreation of the Ruckers 1628 from the comfort of their favourite iOS device whenever and wherever you like!

Historic Harpsichords – Ruckers 1628 for iOS is available for purchase for $9.99 USD.

SkoogMusic launches Indiegogo crowdfunding for Skoog 2.0 musical instrument

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Scottish based SkoogMusic last week launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign, aiming to enable production of its ground-breaking musical instrument ‘Skoog 2.0’.

This uniquely expressive, uber-cool cube is designed for everyone to play, but unlike a traditional instrument, you don’t need to read music or memorise your scales to give this a go. All you need is a love of music.

(If you are into your music tech, Skoog 2.0 will ship with a full API, bonus mogo synth and it will be ready to rock with Ableton)

Doctors of musical-tech innovation, David Skulina and Ben Schogler, and their small team of creative-developers, have spent the last 4 years proving their ‘music for everyone’ concept (in the shape of the “Skoog”) in the world of education. Extensively tested, honed and developed internationally, Skoog 2.0 is the evolved result: a nifty, wireless, thing of beauty that we can all play.

Patent-pending technology and a range of music-making apps & software, make it an ‘out-of-the box’ joy to play, allowing for a huge range of abilities, creative talents, and musical preferences. It’s also wireless, iOS compatible and highly responsive, so ideal for anyone interested in being creative with sound. Plus, it’s an awesome musical accessory for the iPad.

“The genius of the Skoog is that it provides a powerful tool for music creation, whilst also being intuitive and easy to use. It’s genuinely expressive, providing you with the same control over musical sounds as a flautist has of a flute or a violinist has over violin.”

– British composer Nigel Osborne, MBE

The campaign ends December 10th, 2014.
