Igor Vasiliev has updated BeatCutter - Rhythm slicing and recombining app for iOS to version 1.3. 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.
The most important addition in this update is the feedback mode. This is not like analog feedback when positive loop gain occurs at some more or less stable resonant frequency. It looks more like fractals when the next level is similar to the whole structure, but in this case with constantly changes.
We can say that it works like a sound structure that evolves and changes itself. This is an great ability to create perfect sound abstractions, unrelated to any external samples or signals and it opens up a huge potential for experimentation and inspiration.
- New feedback option sends the sum of the output buses signals back to the input.
- Added option to fade out the output and reset cells in the sample matrix.
- Additional output for channels C3, C4 for standalone mode and Audio unit.
- Added option to send direct signals of the input buses to the additional output.
- The direct signal of the input buses is now taken from the source signal.
- Added option to send the output buses signals for internal reverb to the additional output.
- App description has been updated and improved (also available as PDF).
- Added new datasets for templates.
- Some improvements of audio engine.
- Fixed problem with output to Bluetooth device.
- Minor bugs were fixed.
