Propellerhead Software releases ReBirth for iPhone

Propellerhead Software ReBirth for iPhone

Propellerhead Software has announced that ReBirth, the software application that started a sea change in the 90’s with soft-synths in music creation, is now available for iPhone & iPod Touch.

This is the first time a leading music tool developer has brought a complete professional desktop music application from the personal computer to the mobile world. ReBirth is a true reproduction of the Propellerhead’s acclaimed music-making software from 1997 for the iPhone.

ReBirth literally puts faithful emulations of dance music’s vintage analog hardware at iPhone users’ fingertips: the Roland TB-303 Bass synth and the Roland TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines. Combine these with audio effects units, fully featured pattern sequencers and a quick-acting, scalable iPhone interface and users will soon be making techno on the train, trance on the tram or beats on the bus.

ReBirth for iPhone/iPod Touch features

  • 2 x TB-303 Bassline Synthesizer with pattern sequencer — The original Acid House and Techno bass synth. Unrivaled power, unmistakable sound.
  • TR-808 Drum machine — Roland’s sub-heavy 1980 beat computer. Instant hip hop.
  • TR-909 Drum machine — The go-to beatbox for everything House and Techno. Press play and you’re dancing.
  • A number of great sounding effects and audio shapers — Including tempo-synced digital delay, distortion, compression and special pattern controlled filter.
  • “Mod” support — Includes 5 original user modifications with alternative sound sets and graphics.

ReBirth is available exclusively through the Apple iTunes App Store, priced at 5.49 EUR / $6.99 USD.

Short links for March 2nd, 2010

Some interesting things I found recently:

# cl516: ProLoop iPhone App by Trapcode

Calvin Cardioid on ProLoop for iPhone:

I've been searching a long time for something like this. It's not on OSX, and it's not an audiounit plugin. It's called ProLoop and I got it for $5 on the iTunes store. It's a very hands-on loop player capable of handling 6 loops at a time. My usual audio clips didn't feel like it was fully explaining what's going on, so be sure to check out the video above for a slightly more in-depth look.

# Fractions of a Second: An Olympic Musical – Interactive Graphic

NYTimes has a cool auralization of crossing the Olympic finish line:

At the Olympics, the blink of an eye can be all that separates the gold medalist from the 10th-place finisher. In some events, this is obvious. But in others, with athletes racing one by one, the closeness of the race is harder to perceive.

TheBlackBox

# TheBlackBox: Release v2.0 – Propeller HSS FX/Sequencer with Digital Audio SPDIF output

The Propeller BlackBox Audio Sequencer is a device for audio waveform creation and a 32 step sequencer.

BlackBox Audio Sequencer features

  • Live fx mode to allow direct output of the current waveform set by 12 different potentiometers.
  • The sequencer allows the fx to be loaded into any one of 32 steps in the sequencer.
  • SPDIF audio output or analog output via a switch (not both at the same time).
  • analog output to a monitor(at the same time as spdif/analog output above (headphones or studio speakers) to allow auditioning before outputting live.
  • 3 encoders that allow – BPM, main volume, and BPM jumps(1/3, 1/2, 1/4, 3/4, 2/3) and a switch for jump direction. (main volume and bpm jump programming not complete yet).
  • BlackBox to BlackBox CLOCK sync, input rca, output rca.(serial @ 150Kbps, works over 1 foot rca cable) (this is so many of these devices can be connected to one main BEAT CLOCK MASTER.).
  • 32 LEDS are used as sequencer step indication, ALONG with using the 32 LEDS as buttons to load waveform.
  • 2 leds that start/stop the sequencer and live fx waveform.
  • fully open source that uses the HSS code to generate the audio.

# Gruss Loops Vol X is Here!

Ryan releases another batch of cool drum loops.

Another 1st of the month brings us another set of Gruss Loops. Volume X features four different loop sets with over 25 different groove and fill variations in each style and tempo. A mix of world, funk, latin and r&b loops, Volume X is a must-have for any well-rounded loop collection.

Osmos

# Exclusive Free Soundtrack: Osmos, Featuring Gas, Julien Neto, Loscil, High Skies

Peter Kirn at Create Digital Music writes:

The independent game Osmos won our hearts in 2009, with transcendent, meditative gameplay built on simulated particle physics, starting as a floating wonderland and ending with some deliciously punishing difficulty. But it’s the soundtrack that sealed the deal: ambient-tinged work by artists like Gas 0095, Julien Neto, Loscil, and High Skies helped us imagine an unseen, microscopic (or perhaps macroscopic) world. Their sonic craft is a great example of what digital music can be. Now, I’m pleased to offer a lot of that music for your listening pleasure, for free. It’s one of the rare game soundtracks you’d want to hear even after having heard it on repeat while solving some of the title’s trickier puzzles. A huge thanks to the artists, whose generosity made this compilation possible – check out their work if you haven’t already.
