Igor Vasiliev has updated BeatCutter - Rhythm slicing and recombining app for iOS to version 1.1. They say:
BeatCutter is an experimental multi-channel app for slicing and recombining sound based on rhythm. In the center of the app is a matrix of sample cells with smoothly reconfigurable recording, playback and control busses. This app is best for those who would like to experiment with long sound files or live instruments, creating chaotic constructions and patterns from sliced rhythm-driven samples.
This update improves the work of sound engine, adds several new features to improve the usability, and fixes found issues.
- The algorithm for applying fade in / out has been changed. The time is fixed at the start of recording, but the fades are applied during playback. This gives a smooth start / stop of playback even when using a bitmask.
- Added a panel for step by step change and quick setting of predefined parameter values.
- Added popup with a short description and value when changing parameters.
- The parameter "Skip cell playback" now applies after the first playback.
- Improved the algorithm for selecting cells for recording on the same trigger bus.
- Parameter values in beats are displayed in whole and fractional parts.
- Added option to app settings: "Display decimal part of beat as non simplify fraction".
- Added option to app settings: "Start audio unit instance in the initial state".
- More accurate display of the signal state with channel marks on the main screen.
- The current state of all parameters is saved separately for standalone and audio unit.
- Reduced the maximum time of fade in / out for more accurate setting of small values.
- Reduced the maximum time of the module "Echo" for more accurate setting of small values.
- Fixed an issue with the parameters "Step" for changing the playback speed and bitmask offset.
- Fixed problem with saving the current state after applying a preset.
- Several user interface improvements.
