Elastic Melody for iOS now does MIDI – right here it’s with MeeBlip

Elastic Melody, Oliver Greschke’s sensible melodic sequencing app, now helps MIDI ship/obtain, for different apps and for {hardware}. That makes your iPhone/iPad an ideal companion to your synth {hardware} – together with our personal MeeBlip geode. Watch:

A giant due to Oliver (MoMInstruments, with Mouse on Mars) for this unsolicited video. He’s made an excellent, ultra-compact rig right here, and Elastic Drums makes an excellent companion to the geode’s dirty bass. The humorous factor is, whereas that is an iOS rig, it actually will get again to {hardware} roots – make a sample, tweak some knobs, hold the groove going.

And that’s actually the spirit of Elastic Melody itself. Oliver took inspiration from the terrific sequencer on Dave Smith’s sensible Evolver. It’s a fantastic tribute to Dave’s method, and now including MIDI help makes it full.

New on this model (from the developer):

  • Midi Enter: Choose your Midi Enter supply and the observe that ought to obtain Midi Notes
  • Midi Output: Choose the place observe Notes ought to get routed to
  • Midi Bluetooth: Seek for Midi Bluetooth connections
  • New: Copy perform to repeat Sound, Notes or Automation information to a different observe

And that’s on high of a 3-track sequencer with per-track polyrhythmic/polymetric operation, plus track mode for stringing collectively patterns within the studio or stay. Every of these three tracks options an inner analog subtractive synth, too, with full parameter management. And as you’d anticipate from the Elastic collection, you get a full set of results (EQ, refrain, delay, and reverb) within the deal, too, although in fact you too can add your personal with different apps.

As earlier than, Elastic Drums runs each as a standalone app and as an AUv3 plug-in, on each iPhone and iPad (although iPad will naturally provide you with extra display room).

The app works with any class-compliant MIDI interface, making it a fantastic selection each for desktop synths and Eurorack modular (anticipate I’ll wind up utilizing it much more with the latter). Because it occurs, we make a suitable interface, too – MeeBlip cubit duo is about the identical dimension and worth as some competing 1×1 interfaces, however provides you a full 4 outputs (as a via, so successfully zero-latency). If in case you have a more moderen iPad or iPhone with USB-C, you don’t want any adapter; you possibly can simply purchase a USB-C to B cable. (I simply did by way of Prime myself, I suppose as I wish to ship Jeff Bezos even additional into area or one thing.)

Our synth is now transport direct from Canada (internationally) and Germany (for Europe):

And in the event you want an interface that doubles as a via field – however is roughly the scale/weight of a 1×1 choice, I imply, I positively use the one we make as I haven’t discovered a greater answer, both:
