Amplitude-Controlled Generative Sampler Plug-In

Inear Display releases Tkapik for Windows, Mac and Linux      01/08/13

Inear Display describes Tkapik as an amplitude controlled generative sampler plugin. They say that you dd it to a track, then load a sound file and Tkapik will trigger the sample with random settings every time an amplitude peak is detected in the input signal. The sample can either be mixed with the input according to its amplitude envelope or completely replace the signal using the "solo" mode.

A spokesperson told us, "Don't get fooled by the minimalist interface : being sample-based, Tkapik opens a wide array of sonic possibilities. You can use it to simply layer a kick drum with some field recordings or in a more extreme way to replace a whole part by a chaos of random drills and glitches. When the sample is triggered, its start offset, loop points and optionally pitch are randomized, giving you surprising results every time."

Additional features include the ability to resize the plugin interface to fit your display (Windows and Os X only), and map your MIDI controller easily using the built-in MIDI learn system. By its very nature, Tkapik has no preset system, but its state will be properly recalled when re-opening a project in your DAW.

Tkapik is available for Windows, Mac Os X and Linux, as VST (32/64 bit) and AU (32/64 bit, Mac only).

Features:

  • Sampler supporting wav and aiff audio files
  • Sample triggering based on input signal amplitude
  • Combine the sample and the input signal using the envelope follower
  • Replace the input signal using the solo mode
  • Random start offset, loop points and optionally pitch on every trigger
  • User defined range for pitch random
  • Sample reverse
  • MIDI learn
  • Vector based resizable user interface (Windows and Os X only)
  • Lifetime free updates for registered users


Pricing and Availability:

10€ – introductory price until 08/03/2013 (regular price: 20€)

Music is becoming a video game. What ever happened to talented musicians playing hand crafted instruments. Today it is plug and play toys. Boring.

@GTRman.....what is boring about an audio triggered sampler? The mind boggles with its potential for live improvised performance.... One could accompany oneself with this whilst getting down on your original hand crafted lute.....the possibilities are endless with a device like this. It would be ideal to use in a mixed digital and acoustic set-up without the need for a digital sequencer like Logic or Live....

@GTRman you obviously not only cannot see past the plain presentation of an instrument to see it's potential, you also don't know anything about videogames and even less you know about real musician who will go unaffected by this, if they don't want it.

Real musicians aren't afraid to play with toys. The musisican matters, not the tools.
