Percussa has introduced Modulor, a new software application for the AudioCubes hardware platform.
Here's what Percussa's Bert Schiettecatte has to say about Modulor:
It’s now possible for AudioCubes to detect each other in a network, and forward data to each other within the network. This means that AudioCubes can be configured or colours can be set through other AudioCubes, and that you only have to have one AudioCube connected to talk to the rest.
Modulor is the first application to take advantage of this exciting upgrade. It’s an application developed specifically for people who like to create their musical ideas using building blocks (e.g. loops of MIDI data).
The software lets you record loops into cubes using your favourite MIDI controller, and then combine those loops simply by putting cubes together. Colour coding can be used, for example to remember which loop is where or what key the loop is in.
Besides recording and playing back loops, it’s also possible to process MIDI data, from loops or from live input, for example, using arpeggiators, chord generators, transposition, echos, … each cube can have one MIDI effect, and by forming networks of cubes you can create processing chains for MIDI data.
The application is a VST instrument host, so you can run it all by itself, and load your favourite software instruments. The resulting MIDI can be recorded to disk as a MIDI file with multiple tracks, one for each software instrument, which lets you bring your project into your favourite DAW software.
