7XWAVE Sample Sequencer


7XWAVE Sample Sequencer:Walk-through Part 1
7XWAVE Sample Sequencer:Walk-through Part 2 (Step Edits)

"This is a guide to 7XWAVE Sample Synth & Sequencer app
Explained how to choose tracks to edit sound and quick basic step editing.
Choose/import sounds, filters, trimming modulation and effects."

via the Apple Appstore

"7Xwave - a 7 track sample sequencer with synthesiser & animatable modulation features.
So many sound manipulation possibilities can be had with this whether its a funky electro backing track or crazy glitch effects.

Each track adjustable up to 64 steps.

Choose a sample, tweak the sound using envelopes & filters.

Add effects to each sound, pan, level, sample start, length pitch & filter.

Lock track parameter dials to a step or record dial movements in real time.

Export recorded loops or route audio into Audiobus or AUM etc keeping in sync with other apps using MIDI or Ableton Link.

This app was inspired by the Korg Volca & Electribes. I had so much fun with the Volca but it felt limited in memory and steps. It was a very fun sound toy & occasionally a loop maker but I wanted to be able to store more, longer patterns, and have more variation in sequences. Being a massive fan of the Korg Electribes, i looked at the recent Electribe Sampler. It was cool but just didn't seem as fun as the older Electribes plus you couldn't animate the sample start and length which to me was the best part of the Volca. So i decided to see if I can make my own app that does what i wanted. Using the knowledge i gained from 2Xb303 & 6X806 I delved deeper into audio coding. Originally an environment artist, I have had to leant alot as i go, but here after many months during a strange year of set backs, I finally finished it. I know there will be some disappointed its not AUv3 as I havent managed to find a way for that just yet. I have had great fun with this and created some cool loops and tracks myself. I dont need my Volca anymore. I hope you enjoy this too.

Specifications & features:
Animate or set key steps for every track dial for sound changing animations.
Each program has swing/groove,
has independent step lengths from 1-64 plus offsets,
Randomiser with 0-100% chance of a step in realtime,
Accent on each track for how much the accent affects pitch, frequency & volume dynamics.
Each step is added using classic step edits. Double tap = accented dynamics. Hold down a step for copy, paste & clear.
Fill 64 steps repeats current length into 64 steps.
Random generate the steps.
Each track has hi, low or band pass filter, resonance, filter env & decay.
Also Hi split adds parallel hi pass.
Sample start, length & loop point, loop on/off, ping ping & reverse.
Loop level allows you to play loop back to point in Sample or at the very end for glitch repeat effects.
Slice/divide the sample start point to the track sequence length.
You can then re-shuffle steps for glitch effect.
Refine any step parameter manually.
Adjust pitch, volume attack & release or gated volume. Adjust pitch or set it automatically to fit the sequence length and BPM (good for importing loops to match).
Distortion, Delay (snaps to nearest time sync), reverb and compression effects.
Each track has one LFO with adjustable speed and can modulate sample start, length , filter and pitch. LFO can also triggered to reset on each step for an Envelope effect.
Built in keyboard for playing your samples using keys or selecting the random notes for random generation in step edit.
Mixer console view so you can adjust pan, bass and levels.
Import samples from other apps documents folders, Audioshare or copy/paste.
Export you trimmed (using start/length) sample to this app document folder and export your recorder loops.
Record what you are playing to export to another app or computer for composing yous loops.
Play in sync your sampled loop with your current program.
Route the audio output into other apps like Garage band, Audiobus or AUM with other apps.
Ableton Link / MIDI sync.
PLEASE NOTE: Depending on IOS version and Audiobus (AB) version, if you have trouble loading into AB, swipe close 7XWAVE , launch 7XWAVE, clear session in AB, then load into AB.

Included is a help function.
Any problems or ideas please let me know.
