Shoulda Woulda Coulda have released version 2.65 of PolyChord. The update adds “Dynamics”. Press harder or softer on the keys and chords, and hear the difference.
Dynamics works great over MIDI. Now you can control your softsynths with really natural touches. Play a keyboard with true subtlety. “Pressure Gain” control allows you to pump up polychord’s sensitivity to touch, so you can adjust it to work the best whether polychord is on your lap, on a table, or whichever way you choose. And if you don’t want any dynamics at all, just toggle off the ‘Touch Pressure’ switch.
Performable. Recordable. Polychord 2 for iPad. A musical instrument for experts and beginners alike. Write songs, play music, record and share. Hit any of the chord circles to play a chord. Slide your fingers over the strum keys and play the notes. Go from Major to Minor. Switch Keys. Play a scale. Turn on auto accompany and play along to drums, bass, and an arpeggiator that has a whole range of time-signatures to choose from.
Turn on MIDI for any of the instruments in polychord, and use it as a powerful controller for your favorite audio programs. Like chiptunes and 8-bit music? Polychord has bitshift effects, including detailed controls for the drums. Decimate and distort your sounds with full control over bits and bitrate.
