Sineqube releases Petri generative sample player for Mac

Sineqube Petri

Sineqube has released Petri, a sample player that generates its own sequences and selects up to eight random samples from a folder of your choosing.

It was designed to create glitchy, IDM-inspired drum patterns very quickly. More than simply creating randomized sequences, Petri uses a series of probability algorithms that respond to however sparse or dense you would like the patterns to be, simply by dragging a slider.

If you prefer, all randomization can be turned off, and Petri can instead be used as a traditional sample player with sequences input by hand using a familiar 8×8 matrix editor. With a quick-start guide built into the program, mouse-over hints over most features, and a full manual, you’ll be creating patterns that rival your favorite electronic musicians in no time.

Petri v1.0 features

  • Probabilistic randomization — control how sparse or dense you want your randomized sequences to be.
  • Randomized pitch, sample choice, sequencing, and granular playback makes creating unpredictable percussion loops an effortless walk in a serendipitous park.
  • Load a folder of aif or wavs to populate 8 channels of sequencing.
  • Disengage all randomization to use Petri like a traditional sample player.
  • Familiar 8 x 8 sequence grid enables quick sequence building on the fly.
  • Hot keys for most-used functions allow for easy live performing.
  • Extensive mouse-over hint system, quick start guide, and full manual makes Petri very easy to learn.
  • Signal-rate synced tempo provides accurate timing.
  • Tap-tempo.
  • Auto-filtering with randomization features.
  • Preset saving.
  • Record to disk.

Petri for Mac is available to purchase for $30 USD.

Sineqube Kapling

Sineqube has released version 1.0 of Kapling, a simple little standalone physical modeling synthesizer application for Mac OS X built with Max/MSP.

It is based on the Karplus-Strong algorithm. Kapling uses this method to attempt the emulation of resonant bodies, like a string being plucked, or melodic percussion instrument being struck. Eight independent voices are triggered by a 32-step sequencer, with a variety of parameters set up to help you sculpt new timbres in realtime. Kapling also features a tempo-synced stereo delay and recording to disk.

In simpler terms, Kapling can help you make twangy, boingy, klonky tones.

Kapling features

  • 8 independent synth voices.
  • 32-step sequencer.
  • Realtime timbral controls.
  • Randomized initial impulse to provide natural variation over time.
  • Tempo-synced stereo delay.
  • Store presets for pitch, sequences, and timbre, and export them to disk.
  • Record output directly to disk as an aiff file.
  • CPU monitor helps keep track of the tax on your system.
  • Each voice has a hotkeyed mute switch for ease of live use.

Kapling is available as a freeware standalone application for Mac. Donations are most welcome.
