Earlier this week Retronyms told us that some new devices and effects were coming to Tabletop. You may have already known they’ve been working with Akai Pro on the MPC Fly App for iPad. They have today announced that the MPC will be available as a device inside Tabletop!
“The MPC on iPad is going to be a blast with classic MPC beat making features, sweet effects, and a killer sampling workflow, and now you’ll be able to work this legendary device into your Tabletop sessions! Possibly the best part is how it works: owners of the stand alone MPC app will automatically unlock the MPC device in Tabletop for free — no need to purchase it twice!”
They have also announced their partnership with iZotope to bring a suite of realtime vocal processing tools to future versions of the Tabletop app.
“By partnering with iZotope, we’ll be able to offer Tabletop users the distinctive pitch-shifting vocal effects heard in so many popular songs. Use them to polish & perfect your tracks, or push the envelope and pitch-shift your live vocals to somewhere entirely new. No matter how you choose to use the iZotope tools, you’ll benefit from the same ease of use and modular design that makes all Tabletop devices work so well together.”
Tabletop for iPad, from Retronyms, is a modular environment where you can mix and match different devices. Select from more than a dozen devices including samplers, mixers, effects, sequencers and more. Buy only the gear you need from an expanding catalog.
Tabletop is the first musical environment designed from the ground up exclusively for the iPad. Each device has its own uses, characteristics, personality—ranging from classics like drum pad samplers to touchscreen effects.
Plug the output of a keyboard into a delay to add an echo, or wire it up to a mixer and adjust the pan. Chain up multiple effects to create new and evolving sounds. Tabletop is an audio playground where you can create beats, compose songs, mix live, make mashups with samples from your iPod library… the possibilities are wide open. Just drag the devices you want to use to the tabletop and chain them together like you would with real hardware.
Tabletop has been designed to fit nicely into your studio. Move your sounds to and from Tabletop using iTunes File Transfer, sample from the mic, line-in, or even from your iPod library right in the app. Plus, support for AudioPaste lets you paste sounds from other iOS apps.
