Main piano theme created by Rauf Kasimov using the iGrand Piano app.
Chaotic textures were created using the BeatCutter app on iPad with external sound card Focusrite Scarlett 6i6. BeatCutter can use up to four input channels to fill the matrix of samples and construct abstract rhythmic structures from fragments of the original sound.
The four sound sources for this app were synths - Moog Slim phatty thru TC Helicon Voice works, Clavia Nord Lead 3 with Doepher Dark Time sequencer thru Roland SDE-2000, Korg MS2000, Roland Juno-60 thru Eventide Harmonizer H949. All of these synth also were recorded directly and mixed with BeatCutter output. Outputs from all instruments and the BeatCutter app were recorded on a Tascam 38 and then mixed. Reverbs AKG ADR68K, Yamaha REV7 were used for mixing.
BeatCutter is an experimental multi-channel app for slicing and recombining sound based on rhythm. In the center of the app is a matrix of sample cells with smoothly reconfigurable recording, playback and control busses. This app is best for those who would like to experiment with large audio files or live instruments, creating chaotic constructions and patterns from sliced rhythm-driven samples.
