Kind of a (re)re­birth

Cut from the same kind of dig­i­tal cloth as Pro­peller­head’s leg­endary Re­Birth, Dmitrij Pavlov’s Pure Acid is a bassline and drum ma­chine that draws its in­spi­ra­tion from clas­sic 80s hard­ware. We’re talk­ing sounds like the leg­endary TB-303 bassline synth and TR-range of drum ma­chines.

De­signed for “fast and fun” mu­sic mak­ing, Pure Acid comes with built-in pat­terns and also en­ables you to cre­ate your own, with ef­fects and X/Y pad con­trol along­side se­quenc­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties. It costs £9.99/$9.99 for both iPhone and iPad. ji­mau­dio.pro

You want Jarre for­ever?

It seems like Jean-Michel Jarre has ripped a page from the Brian Eno play­book with EōN, an “in­fi­nite mu­sic app” that will keep com­ing up with evolv­ing tunes and vi­su­als for as long as you want it to. These are based on beats, melodies and chords that were cre­ated by Jarre; the rest of the cre­ative leg­work is taken on by a mys­te­ri­ous al­go­rithm, which can work off­line, too. EōN costs £8.99/$8.99. jean­michel­jarre.com

Your new rhythm friend

Cem Ol­cay’s Rhyth­mBud is a MIDI ef­fect app that cre­ates pat­terns based on in­com­ing MIDI data, then sends them out to an­other app or MIDI de­vice. There’s a time­line for edit­ing, a va­ri­ety of MIDI trans­for­ma­tion set­tings and sup­port for the AUv3, Au­dioBus 3 and In­ter-App Au­dio stan­dards. Rhyth­mBud can be all yours for just £4.99/$4.99. key­bu­dapp.com
