Rea­son Com­pact

Rea­son has al­ways felt like a great fit for iOS, and Pro­peller­head have fi­nally re­leased a mo­bile ver­sion, Rea­son Com­pact. How­ever, while this does con­tain a touch-friendly ver­sion of the ex­cel­lent Europa synth, that’s all you get at this stage. You can record, edit and ex­port pat­terns as au­dio or Rea­son 10 files, but com­plete track cre­ation is out of the ques­tion. More tracks and in­stru­ments have been promised.

That’s be­cause it’s an em­u­la­tion of a hard­ware pas­sive tube EQ unit; there are four con­trol­lable bands, with the in­clu­sion of con­tin­u­ous fre­quency se­lec­tion mean­ing you can tune each band as you wish, and a Dy­namic At­ten­u­a­tion con­trol en­abling you to use com­pres­sion across its range.

Elec­tribe Wave

Korg will bring their Elec­tribe groove­box range up to date with Elec­tribe Wave, a new iPad app pow­ered by a wavetable synth engine that comes with a fil­ter and two mod­u­la­tion units. The app will help you cre­ate beats across 16 steps and gen­er­ate chord pro­gres­sions. Pat­terns are stitched to­gether to cre­ate songs, which can then be ex­ported as au­dio files or in Able­ton Live for­mat. £19.99.
