Audio Blocks is one of the coolest new instruments I have seen. These look like so much fun. Audio Blocks by Percussa are a new MIDI instrument that you can input your own samples to create completely original and new compositions of your own.
I wish they were a bit cheaper to buy. A set of four blocks runs around $600 US. A little steep.
Here is some info from their site.
Improvisor is a MIDI sequencer application which plays back multiple step sequences with up to 64 steps in length.
Each sequence is entered using velocity and semitone patterns, relative to a root note.
Semitone patterns can be played back using different velocity patterns or the other way around.
Semitone patterns can follow each other, which means they will add to each other’s relative semitone steps.
By drawing your own semitone and velocity patterns, and making patterns follow each other, you can create completely new melodies, which you didn’t imagine before!
