Rekkerd also started hosting a bunch more freeware plug-ins, including Fretted Synth and Lost Technology.
The rekkerd SoundCloud page seems to have become a more active place over the year, and I’m happy to read many of you enjoyed the few tunes I miraculously found the time for to do.
Despite having terrible social networking skills the site’s Twitter page just went 1,000+ followers, and I signed up for FaceBook even though everyone and their mother seems to dislike it for privacy issues or whatever.
Anyway, this is not why I wanted to write this post.
Whether you come here for the latest news, for free samples and plugins, visiting incidentally or many times a day, I just wanted to say …
… for visiting and supporting rekkerd throughout 2010.
May 2011 be a most wonderful year for you and yours, full of new musical adventures. Hope to see you again in the new year!
Korg has released version 2.1 of AudioGate, an audio format conversion application for Windows and Mac.
AudioGate has been the ideal partner for the KORG MR series of DSD recorders, allowing you to record in the ultra-high-resolution DSD format and then down- convert to the most suitable format for your needs. It was created to bring out the unlimited potential of a DSD master, and has become an indispensible DSD recording tool used by studios worldwide.
Now, everyone can experience the advantages of DSD audio with the new version of AudioGate, which can operate as a free standalone application. Go ahead — download a favorite song in DSD format, and enjoy ultimate audio quality and flexibility with AudioGate on nearly any computer.
AudioGate v2.1 can be freely downloaded and used by anyone, but either a KORG MR series product or a valid Twitter account is required in order to activate the software.
Intermorphic has released version 18.104.22.168 of Mixtikl, a generative music mixer for mobile, web & tweets.
Changes made have primarily been concerned with improving usability, and making it much easier to get started with a new mix.
Changes in Mixtikl v22.214.171.124
New Random and New Empty have been added to all the included Tiklpaks; selecting New Random will create new mix populated from all the available content.
You can add your own New Random files, where generative and audio loop content is identified in the underlying New Random.mixtikl mix file by: Gen content vol=88, Audio loops vol=87. If tempo is set to 0 then tempo will be randomised, too.
Get Paks (was first item in mixes) now moved to More Mixtikl menu, again to simplify making new mixes.
Tapping top _right_ in Mixer screen does not now load the main menu (which was confusing), and the tooltip text is now yellow to show it relates to the highlighted cell.
New “Clear EVERYTHING” added to Actions menu, so you can clear everything in a mix back to default settings.
In the Apps menu the Partikl entry has been renamed to “File Player” (which better reflects what it does, and where advanced access to Partikl settings for a file can be accessed).
Intermorphic has released Mixtikl 2, a generative music mixer for mobile, web & tweets.
With its magical mix of sound sources, FX and music engines, Mixtikl 2 has firmly ushered in the “tweet mix revolution”. You may not believe your ears, but the 140 characters of a tweet really are easily enough for Mixtikl to play infinite music mixes of a quality that will astound and entertain you. We call the tweets mix “tikls” ["tickles"]. It plays tunes & sound fx tikls, too!
How is it done you ask? The boffins at Intermorphic built upon the vector audio techniques they pioneered back in 2000 where they found a way to deliver a sound in 300 bytes. Now they’ve found a way to play entire 12 track mixes in a tweet, loaded with FX and mix settings too!
It is a snap to create your own mix tikls, from chillout ambient to ear bashing beats, which you can tweet, email and embed in webpages.
Our generative music heritage means Mixtikl 2 presently excels at ambient mixes, but we also want to make sure it does what you want – let us know!
Mixtikl 2 for Mac OS X and Windows desktop (launch price of $19.99 USD) comprises a stand-alone version, a VST and AU plug-in for music sequencers, and a plug-in for web browsers. The Mixtikl browser plug-in allows tikls or more advanced and customised mixes to be played in a web page. Mixtikl 2 for Windows mobile (launch price of $4.99 USD) is available at launch for both Windows mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone.
Mixtikl 2 for iPhone / iPod touch is to be submitted to Apple iTunes within days.
