Ken Karsh - Vasilievity

"This video was done in order to demonstrate one of my favorite apps that Igor created - “Master FX”. Except for the bass, all of the audio was processed exclusively with Master FX. Looping was done with my Boss RC-300 Looper. The Alesis iODock was recorded into the auxiliary input of the RC-300. The guitar is my Martin 00028EC equipped with an LR Baggs Anthem acoustic pickup. Thank you, Igor Vasiliev for developing Master FX and all of your other excellent apps."

Distant Journey - Live performance

Distant Journey - Live performance with two iPad apps and bunch of gears

What is in setup?

Processing of synth sounds, pads and textures created on two apps on iPad - FieldScaper and SoundScaper. These apps work in real time and driven from two midi controllers. The sound of these apps is taken from external audio interfaces that connected to iPad thru usual usb hub and camera connection kit (Lightning to USB adapter).

SoundScaper generates some textures and noises (controlled by Korg nanoKontrol2, audio interface xDuoo XD-05). FieldScaper processes pad samples and the sounds from two synths (controlled by Novation Zero MkII, audio interface Focusrite Scarlett 6i6).

Synths - Roland Juno-60, Yamaha DX12 (melody line, processed by FieldScaper app). Clavia Nord, Moog Slim Phatty - bass line.

Korg Electribe EMX-1 as drum machine and sequencer.

Effect gears - Roland RE-201 Space Echo (together with Roland Juno-60), AKAI MFC 42 with Moog, Lexicon Vortex (Clavia). Reverbs - Yamaha SPX 90, Yamaha REV 7, AKG ADR 68. Compressors - DBX, TC Electronic.

Recorded on Sony TC-510-2 tapecorder directly from line out of mix console (Allen&Heath GS3V).

SoundScaper ver. 1.8 has been released!

In this update was completely redesigned "Morphing scene" feature that is the new instrument as a part of SoundScaper specially designed for live improvisation with existing scenes.

[ Know more about SoundScaper ]

The morphing feature gives you ability of smooth switching between scenes in different modes and adding effects during the morphing process. With the morphing you can add a new dimension to existing scenes varying them in the real time. But the most interesting result can be reached with applying multifunctional filters and changing the oscillator parameters in transition state between scenes.

[ SoundScaper 1.8 application manual (PDF) ]

Demo of filters, morphing scene and feedback effect:

Also in this update:

  • New control pad of oscillators in the morphing interface.
  • Possibility to change oscillators parameters during the morphing.
  • Automatic output level control during the morphing.
  • Automatic return to zero option for parameters in morphing.
  • New  MIDI controls for the morphing options.
  • Added very creative feature of feedback.
  • Improved morphing modes.
