Keith McMillen Instruments announces QuNeo integration for FL Studio, Reason, VirtualDJ & Spark

Keith McMillen Instruments QuNeo

Keith McMillen Instruments has announced that its QuNeo 3D multi-touch pad controller is now supported by over 30 popular music applications, including new integration for FL Studio, Reason, VirtualDJ and Spark.

QuNeo, the most expressive pad controller on the market, is now the most widely supported. QuNeo works out of the box with over 30 music applications, yet allows for easy tweaking to suit every player’s needs.

New QuNeo integration

  • FL Studio 11 — FL Studio is one of the most widely used music production software applications. The recent release FL Studio 11 by Image-Line Software includes native support for QuNeo and a new Performance mode for clip-launching. “Image-Line is happy to include QuNeo as a supported MIDI controller in FL Studio,” said Image-Line Communications Manager, Scott Fisher. “FL Studio 11′s new Performance mode allows QuNeo users to do live triggering of their playlist clips.”
  • Reason 7 — Reason is a popular and powerful music production studio from Propellerhead Software. Released in April, Reason 7 includes built in control surface support for QuNeo. “Controlling Reason with QuNeo gives you a different way to approach your music making, and the unique controller offers some really exciting features for interacting with your Reason rack,” said Propellerhead Product Specialist, Mattias Häggström Gerdt. It’s now easier than ever to use QuNeo’s X-Y location and pressure sensitive pads to bring expressive levels of performance control to Reason. Each of QuNeo’s pads can act as both a keyboard key and a 3-D effects joystick. QuNeo’s additional sliders, rotaries and buttons provide even more ways to interact with Reason.
  • VirtualDJ — VirtualDJ is a popular DJ software application with a large, world-wide user base. In partnership with KMI, Atomix Productions has developed a QuNeo preset and control surface mapping for VirtualDJ which provides a wide range of performance options. “It was a real pleasure working with QuNeo and the KMI staff to bring such a versatile product to VirtualDJ users, and we look forward to working with other products from Keith McMillen,” said Atomix Hardware Development Engineer, Chris Stoll. Users can scratch, crossfade between decks, alter the tempo of tracks, control loops, filters, effects and key changes, access cue points, and trigger samples. When scratching with QuNeo’s rotaries, looping or hot cue triggering, users can leverage Virtual DJ’s “Slip Mode” which automatically returns the track to the point where it would be if none of these actions had occurred.
  • Arturia Spark — Arturia’s innovative software instruments are a natural fit with QuNeo. In partnership with Arturia, KMI has developed QuNeo control surface mappings and a custom QuNeo preset for Spark, Spark Vintage Drum Machines, Spark DubStep and Spark EDM. Using QuNeo factory presets, users can play individual pads or drum patterns, perform drum loop manipulation, and control effects. The custom Spark QuNeo preset provides more advanced features like additional effects control, the use of QuNeo’s rotaries, and the ability to activate transport controls from QuNeo.

The QuNeo is available to purchase for $249.95 USD.

Avantgarde Sound releases enChord for Lemur & iPad

Avantgarde Sound has introduced its enChord chord app.

Avantgarde Sound enChord
Avantgarde Sound’s enChord can control any MIDI capable instrument whether software (VST, AU, AAX, etc.) or hardware.

enChord is the harmony modular super algorithm; a 21st century MIDI control super instrument.
Or let’s try another way to put it: enChord is a truly innovative application that lets you design harmonically perfect chords using all of the most popular music scales in the world with the assistance of one-touch chord progression analysis and scale modulation analysis, for you to either compose music, perform music (using the included innovative PadBoard and TileBoard MIDI controllers), or BOTH by utilizing this completely innovative system when it comes to user-friendly interaction for performing and writing music.

enChord is excessively easy to use, but the results can be as mesmerizingly complex as you want them to be = true power to you.

enChord fully working prototype was developed by Avantgarde Audio using Liine’s Lemur framework with the purpose of aiding composers, songwriters and performers with their ultimate task in a totally new, improved and faster way. enChord is currently being ported to other major touch platforms, like iPad (standalone version), Android, Windows 8, etc. Plans to make enChord a standalone hardware instrument are being discussed.

To support further development and porting to other platforms, you can either buy the fully working version of enChord here, make donations, or both. Further development and porting fully depends on the support of the community and the industry.

enChord features

  • NoteBoard, a 108 “note canvas” for state of the art chord design and chord progression design.
  • ChordLibrary, 5832 immediately available chords at the touch of one finger, featuring avant-garde (pun totally intended!) workflow and ergonomics not ever seen before… with direct audition.
  • ScaleLibrary, dozens of musical scales (Major? Harmonic Minor? Gypsy? Bebop? Oriental? Hindu? You name it… they are all in enChord’s ScaleLibrary)
  • Real time, generative scale “mood” audition
  • One-touch chord analysis and chord progression suggester
  • One-touch scale analysis and scale modulation suggester (world’s first thanks to enChord’s unique workflow)
  • ChordBank feature for chord storage and direct chord audition of your stored factory or modified chords on every session
  • ModBank feature: you can store your scale modulations and go back to your base scale at any time!
  • TileBoard: a surface of harmonically perfect “tiles” for ultimate performance with no wrong notes; a dynamic self-regeneration-capable multi-touch instrument with expression control, channel aftertouch control and velocity control for each harmonic Tile for real-world expressivity!
  • PadBoard, a dynamic pad-based board (ala MPC) that is dynamically re-built according to the user-selected scale
  • MIDI channel selection enabling you to control up to 3 different external instruments at a time
  • enChord is compatible with all DAWs that support MIDI
  • enChord is compatible with all hardware and software instruments that support MIDI
  • enChord features a state of the art, ultra ergonomic, user-friendly interface and workflow. Steve Jobs would be Avantgarde’s best friend
  • enChord can be used by anyone who can install a MIDI controller; enChord’s harmony analytics and performance controllers CAN help all musicians of all genres. Musicians and composers of all skill levels will definitely find a use for enChord in their workflow. 100% certainty.
  • With your support, more features coming soon…
