Hard to believe, but Sonic Bloom already turns 3 today. A big thank you to everyone who’s been following this blog, registered or got one of my courses or Max for Live Packs by Max for Cats. Thanks as well for joining me on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and YouTube.
The combination of Max for Live MIDI effect and Lemur template in this free arpeggiator is quite clever. FingArp has many functions you can quickly switch between and affect, which gives you tons of immediate variations for your chords. It connects with a Max for Live patch via OSC which only requires setting an OSC target.
It's dark and cold here in Berlin, the smell of frost already in the air. Not such good time for outdoors activities perhaps, but a great time for the creative minded. For the entire month of December you can save 20% on all courses and Max for Live Packs on Sonic Bloom. You can save even more on bundles.
Genstep16 is a very interesting kind of step sequencer. It has the ability to generate new arpeggio/melody patterns over time. Also adding variations in velocity and duration make the patterns seem very organic and human. Very inspiring!
Now that summer in the northern hemisphere is drawing to a close and the weather isn't as inviting anymore to do stuff outdoors, it's the time we start spendinf more hours in the studio making music again. From now until September 23 - the autumn equinox this year - you can save 20% on all courses and Max for Live devices on Sonic Bloom. You can save even more on bundles.
Polyrhythmus is a Max for Live rhythm sequencer, arpeggio builder as well as a MIDI CC and parameter automator. If you're into polyrhythms or arpeggios, this one's quite a treat. It looks great, too and despite all this is free.
It's been just a little over a month since the release of the Max for Live MIDI-Effects Arp One and Chord Memorizer by Max for Cats. For all of you who purchased one or both of them, there's now an update available in your account.
I'm very happy to announce two new Max for Live MIDI effects - "Arp One" and "Chord Memorizer" - that were specifically developed for Sonic Bloom by Christian Kleine with his new outlet Max for Cats.
Eric Ameres, also known as Erasermice in the Max for Live community, has made a pretty detailed video tutorial on building a tempo synced Arpeggiator.
