Anything Honest Amos

Anything Honest has released version 1.1 of Amos, a MIDI instrument for the iPad.

Amos is a reactive MIDI iPad instrument. It sends MIDI notes through a USB MIDI interface or over a wireless network to trigger sounds from software synths, MIDI-capable hardware or desktop DAWs like GarageBand, ProTools and Live.

In Amos’s physics-simulated room, collisions between objects trigger MIDI notes. Up to three duration discs (half note, quarter note, eighth note) can be grabbed and thrown around the room. There are three 6-octave keyboards that can be configured via the Settings menu. When a disc strikes a keyboard key, it takes on that key‘s note value and emits that value for each collision until a new key is struck. Tilting the device controls the gravity in the room.

Changes in Amos v1.1

  • CoreMIDI Support.
  • Octave Start and Count Configuration.
  • MIDI Channel Select.
  • MIDI On/Off Toggle.
  • Bouncer Bar On/Off Toggle.

Amos for iPad is available to purchase for $2.99 USD.
