Propellerhead's old school hit machine meets modern mobile hardware 04/05/10
Propellerhead Software has announced the immediate availability of ReBirth for Apple's iPhone & iPod Touch. Here's what they have to say...
ReBirth, the software application that started a sea change in the 90's with soft-synths in music creation, can be now carried in anyone's pocket.
This is the first time a leading music tool developer has brought a complete professional desktop music application from the personal computer to the mobile world. ReBirth is a true reproduction of the Propellerhead's acclaimed music-making software from 1997 for the iPhone.
ReBirth literally puts faithful emulations of dance music's vintage analog hardware at iPhone users' fingertips: the Roland TB-303 Bass synth and the Roland TR-808 and TR-909 drum machines. Combine these with audio effects units, fully featured pattern sequencers and a quick-acting, scalable iPhone interface and users will soon be making techno on the train, trance on the tram or beats on the bus.
2 x TB-303 Bassline Synthesizer with pattern sequencer: The original Acid House and Techno bass synth. Unrivaled power, unmistakable sound.
TR-909 Drum machine: The go-to beatbox for everything House and Techno. Press play and you're dancing.
A number of great sounding effects and audio shapers: Including tempo-synced digital delay, distortion, compression and special pattern controlled filter
"Mod" support: Includes 5 original user modifications with alternative sound sets and graphics
Rebirth is Propellerhead Software's first application for any mobile platform. It has been developed in conjunction with The Retronyms, a San Francisco software developer. About the original ReBirth RB-338
With the release ReBirth RB-338 in 1997 Propellerhead pioneered a new era of music making by realistically emulating historic hardware synthesizers and drum machines in software on personal computers. For the first time, users could get the actual sound of those vintage analog devices without hunting down, paying exorbitant prices for and having the headaches of maintaining classic gear. Led by Propellerhead Software, this "virtual instrument" concept, seemingly impossible at the time, started a trend to the point that it now is commonplace in music software.
