AIR Music Technology has released version 1.2 of its Ignite music creation software.
Offering an entirely unique approach to making music with computers, Ignite v1.2 adds over a dozen features and enhancements, while delivering seamless integration with a growing list of top-name controller hardware from Alesis, AKAI professional, and M-Audio.
Ignite provides an original and musician-centric way to craft music. Free of the constraints of traditional DAW software, Ignite allows musical ideas to be quickly captured, combined, and arranged—with professional results. With Ignite v1.2, improvements have been made to the intuitive graphic interface. The Arranger screen now makes it simple to duplicate ideas (called Clips), encouraging experimentation. The timeline graphics have been updated, and other workflow enhancements have been added to advance the user experience.
“The response so far has been tremendous, with over 25,000 users having already downloaded Ignite. We’ve been getting a steady flow of feedback, some of which we have already used to drive the improvements in Version 1.1 and 1.2. Customers have started to post and share music they have created using Ignite,” said Samara Winterfeld, Principal Product Manager for AIR Music Technology. “We are thrilled with the response Ignite has received from our M-Audio customers and are equally excited to bring the same level of integration to Akai and Alesis customers.”
From day one, Ignite has offered seamless integration with M-Audio keyboard controllers, eliminating any time-consuming mapping and set-up chores. Ignite v1.2 now supports twelve popular Alesis and AKAI Professional keyboard controllers with this same plug-and-play integration, meaning that the vast majority of people using keyboard controllers now have full access to Ignite—for free.
Ignite v1.2 is available via download to owners and purchasers of supported products. In addition to keyboard controllers, Ignite will also be included with a select group of audio interfaces including the new M-Audio M-Track Series and the popular M-Audio Vocal Studio.
