SongStarter is an organic music production app for jamming.

SongStarter is an organic music production app for jamming using a live looping workflow. Starting with a beat, musicians can instantly jam using 31 builtin instruments and write music naturally with a simple, innovative workflow.

Featuring presets from the SodaSynth and Analog Extracts plug-ins by Oscillicious, SongStarter also includes a broad range of classic sampled instruments. Combined with 14 drum beats by producer Carlo Carosi, the result is a unique distraction-free environment for quick songwriting and musical brainstorming. In an endless sea of musical toy apps for mobile platforms and increasingly complex digital audio workstations on the desktop, SongStarter breaks new ground and bridges the gap between productivity and entertainment for musicians.

Oscillicious releases free SongStarter Beta – Live Looping, Music Brainstorming Environment

Oscillicious SongStarter

Oscillicious Audio Labs has announced the immediate availability of SongStarter, a new software tool for rapid music prototyping and brainstorming. A free public beta is available for a limited time for Windows, Mac OS X, and Google Chrome.

SongStarter is a music brainstorming tool for quick composition and iteration using a live looping workflow. Designed to minimize setup time, SongStarter makes it easy to capture new ideas quickly or have spontaneous jams. Using the built-in instruments, musicians can quickly record melodies with the 32-beat live looper and layer them as musical ideas. To finish a jam, these melodies can be dragged and dropped directly into a DAW as MIDI files via the Instant Export feature, so musicians can continue arranging and producing with their existing workflows.

For quick setup, SongStarter includes 21 built-in instruments spanning a range of styles. The Jam Essentials collection features charming sampled instruments like the Dusty Piano. The built-in SodaSynth collection produces pristine, classic sounds from the flagship Oscillicious synthesizer engine. Lastly, the Analog Extracts collection provides quirky synth sounds sampled from a legendary analog modular synthesizer.

Also included in SongStarter is the Freestyle Recorder, a hands-free MIDI recorder with an alternative workflow for kickstarting jams. The Freestyle Recorder allows musicians to easily create seamless loops without worrying about manual chopping, and can instantly drop a beat over a recorded loop.

PreSonus AudioBox gets AB1818VSL Remote for iPad support in v1.2 update

PreSonus has announced it is shipping AudioBox 1.2, a free update that significantly enhances the performance and versatility of their AudioBox 1818VSL interface and also provides a number of new features for its AudioBox™ USB, AudioBox 22VSL and AudioBox 44VSL audio/MIDI interfaces.

PreSonus AB1818VSL Remote for iPad
The AudioBox recording systems get support for the AB1818VSL Remote app for iPad.

One of the biggest enhancements for the AudioBox 1818VSL is that support has been added for AB1818VSL Remote for iPad®. With this free app, you can control virtually every parameter in Virtual StudioLive for AudioBox 1818VSL from an iPad, including volume, pan, aux sends, FX buses, and Fat Channel parameters.

As a result, users can use an AudioBox 1818VSL and USB-connected laptop as a full-featured mixer/recorder for small gigs, rehearsal spaces, and mobile churches, with the iPad serving as a touchscreen mixing surface. In the studio, manage the monitor mixes from your iPad while dedicating your computer screen to a DAW.

A firmware update rescales the preamp tapers on the AudioBox 1818VSL to add more headroom; Virtual StudioLive for 1818VSL now sends all channels to outputs 7/8 (headphones) by default.

With the AudioBox 1.2 update, all AudioBox-series interfaces become compatible with USB 3.0-a rarity among audio interfaces.

This update also provides enhancements for specific AudioBox-series models:

  • The AudioBox USB gains a new, optimized Windows driver for improved performance and a new Windows control panel to adjust buffer size and sample rate.
  • The meters in Virtual StudioLive for all AudioBox VSL-series interfaces have been recalibrated to match the RMS meters in PreSonus’ Studio One DAW.
  • All AudioBox VSL-series interfaces have been integrated into Studio One™ Cue Mix, providing volume and pan control over monitor mixes with the same near-zero latency that Virtual StudioLive software provides.

This free update is recommended for all AudioBox-series users. AB1818VSL Remote is a free download from the Apple App Store.
