WaveDNA has announced a significant update to the full version of their Liquid Rhythm beat generation software, including powerful new MIDI sequencing and editing tools to create and remix drum patterns. This can now be achieved either directly in Ableton Live clips via Max4Live as a plug-in, or as a stand-alone application. Additionally, the company has released Liquid Rhythm Intro, a condensed version of Liquid Rhythm to increase accessibility for the electronic musician, music producer, DJ and film/television composer communities of music creators.
WaveDNA tells us that, boasting a redesigned user interface and a host of new features, Liquid Rhythm enables increased workflow efficiency by shortening the time users spend composing and searching for the right rhythm. It analyzes MIDI data and suggests complementary beats. This allows users to quickly complete their productions or go in new directions without having to change the entire structure and notation of the piece.
Doug Mummenhoff, WaveDNA co-founder and CEO, told us, "When our users tell us that Liquid Rhythm is helping them translate their creative ideas to finished compositions. We know we are doing our job. But, we aren't stopping there. Our company and team of developers are aligned with the vision of revolutionizing electronic music composition, one software app at a time."
Liquid Rhythm's newest software update allows users the ability to quickly access literally ten quadrillion rhythmic patterns, import pre-existing MIDI tracks created using their DAW of choice, and mine their huge library of loops and kits to quickly and easily create rhythmic compositions.
The software's main features include:
Running on both Mac and Windows platforms, Liquid Rhythm is VST/AU/RTAS compatible and works as a plugin or standalone software. It comes with a large Media Library of percussive samples, drum kits and loops, and allows users to import custom samples.
WaveDNA is a Toronto-based music software development company started by co-founders Doug Mummenhoff and Dave Beckford with the goal of designing and building the next generation of innovative virtual software instruments, including their first software release Liquid Rhythm – a MIDI sequencer and beat generator for DJs, electronic musicians and music composers for film/television.
