TOPTIPP!

magellan_ios-app_homescreen-iconSeit Mitte/Ende 2012 im Store (jüngste Aktualisierung: 12/’16) und momentan zum Allzeit-Bestpreis (abgesehen von einer kurzen Einführungs-Aktion und einer Aktion 2016, was die iPad-Version betrifft) zu haben. Die folgende Beschreibung bezieht sich auf die deutlich leistungsfähigere iPad-Version! Bietet zwei von einander unabhängige, polyphone Synth-Engines, die einzeln oder zusammen gespielt werden können. „Use SPAWN’s artificial intelligence to automatically create amazing new sounds.“

Enthält rein soundtechnisch ein saumäßig gut klingendes und überkomplettes Rack für Effekte, sechs Schwingungsgeneratoren, Dual-Filter pro Engine, eine reichhaltige Modulationsmatrix, dedizierte Arpeggiatoren, eine ausgesprochen umfangreiche MIDI-Ausstattung und einen mehrstimmigen Step-Sequencer. Unterstützt die Streaming- und Routing-Schnittstelle Audiobus (eines Drittherstellers) und Apples Inter-App Audio.

Konnte mit ein paar Dutzend von den 240 (!) werksseitig voreingestellten Sounds herumspielen (iPad an einer professionellen PA-Anlage) und darf sagen: Superb!

Die aurikulären Möglichkeiten dieses Stücks Software sind schon aufgrund der sechs Oszillatoren schier unendlich. Eingabe über bestens konfigurierbare Keyboards, diverse Touch Pads und sinnvoll angeordnete Racks. Ein großer Schritt in die Zukunft der mobilen Sound-Synthese. Exzellent! Professionelles Teil. High-Tech-Code am allerletzten Stand der Dinge.

Ein paar Sequenzen sind auch schon einprogrammiert: Oben „SEQ“ wählen, links ein Stück auswählen und den Schalter auf „ON“ stellen. Hochinteressantes und äußerst intelligentes SPAWN-Feature mit Überraschungsfunktion:

Damit wird die Soundkreation zum Kinderspiel. Bei Gefallen abnicken (speichern).

Doch man höre, sehe und staune selbst (acht Videos + extensive Originalbeschreibungen):

Beim vorliegenden Blogposting handelt es sich um eine Fassung von 2014, die 2016 leicht redigiert wurde.

Begleittext zum nächsten Video: „Version 2.1 is here! Our song here shows off new 2.1 features including Audiobus’s FX slot, new FREE FX (Equalizer & Compressor), ability to rearrange FX flow, and SPAWN – Magellan’s artificial intelligence preset creator! All Magellan sounds in this video were created with SPAWN.“ (Inzwischen gibt es schon Version 3.0, s. u.)
