WaveDNA has released version 1.3.1 of Liquid Rhythm and Liquid Rhythm Intro, the MIDI sequencer and beat creation software for Windows and Mac.
We haven’t had an update to Liquid Rhythm in a while. Our release cycles are generally short, but the winter season has been very busy for us. Christmas was fun, NAMM was exciting, the snow… My goodness, so much snow. We’re finally releasing an update to our last major release.
It contains many bugfixes, a few enhancements to features, and most notably, the ability to control Liquid Rhythm using the Novation Launchpad S through the MaxForLive Clips Mode via Ableton Live.
We’ve had Launchpad support for standalone, and now we have support for Ableton Live users with the MaxForLive Clip mode for Liquid Rhythm. We’re also working on bringing MIDI scripting support to Ableton’s Push controller. This release features a beta version of that implementation – it’s a lot of fun! (Though we’re still ironing out the kinks.)
Details on what’s new in version 1.3.1 can be found here.
Liquid Rhythm is available to purchase for $129 USD/$49 USD (Intro).

Fairly Confusing Waveforms has announced Psychodrumma, a free sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Psychodrumma is a “machine for blinking lights and making noise”.
Psychodrumma is nonsensical drum machine for NI Kontakt 4, focused on creating random and randomly evolving rhythmic patterns. It is experimental sound device and although it could be used as a regular drum machine, it would be probably impractical.
It is build of nine modules, called pads, each can playback a sound from one of two banks of 100 samples each, each has separate sound control rack and its own simple sequencer. All sequencers are synchronized with host tempo, but can run at different relative speeds and their start points can be de-synchronized, so to say.
The fun feature of Psychodrumma is, that it can play by itself, all of pad’s settings can be randomized on user input, gradually or periodically. You can just tune settings, let it play and observe evolving waves of randomness.
The virtual instrument library for Kontakt includes 200 wav files (24bit/44kHz), and is available to download at no charge.
