    @Matt_Fletcher_2000 You can midi learn the X position, Y position, on/off and wet/dry for each of the 4 fx blocks. It's a fast and easy setup.

    The new kaoss pad touch behaviour is a great addition. Combining static effects with more dramatic stuff in touch mode is bringing me joy!

    Thanks.

    Can you Midi the ‘touch pad behaviour’ - that would be awesome if you could.

  • Maybe in a future update but right now only what BlueGreenSpiral stated above is MIDI lean

  • Whilst talking about the app store purchasing quirks, whatever happened to the tempting ‘complete my bundle’ option? The recent audio damage bundle lacks this option also.

    Audio Damage can now do a bundle - just happened recently - I think since the release of Dischord4 a week or so ago...

    and I just checked for Elastic and see a bundle for Elastic Drums and Elastic FX - $16.99 Canadian for the pair.

  • thanks for the Repater effect @elasticdrums !

    One question though, what do mean the x and y parameters, they're both labeled as 'repeat'?

  • @ttk
    Repeater has no second parameter, there are basically 3 fields in the top half and 3 fields in the bottom have that do determine the repeating function. Also Repeater is made to work with touchMode only basically

    OK, I've played around with the app those days, and for what it's worth, here is my feedback:

    The repeater effect is effective, good accuracy when the app is used as IAA (in my case, hosted in AUM).

    However, a big drawback would be its usability from an ergonomic point of view: the 'repeat' parameter isn't linear, so it isn't easy to do a simple progression of repeats like 1bar->1/2->1/4->1/8,...

    @elasticdrums , do you think you could simply fix this by mapping the 'repeat' parameter to just one control for the next update?

  • I‘ll wait until it gets more MIDI love. Too much going on here to fiddle with the touchscreen for my would-be go-to fx unit.

  • How's the pitch shift compared to tonestack or harmony eight? Is it poly?

    As already say the repeater effect is a bit different than all the other effects. The idea was to have it non linear working on purpose. But maybe it's too confusing a bit, I'll have a think about it and maybe change to linear, yes

    What else would you like to get MIDI-fied?
    I think a XY Pad is much better to fiddle around with 2 parameters than any MIDI controller ...

  • Here is a new video, by the way ;)

    So no poly pitch shift?

    Sorry not trying to be a jerk. I'm being one track here and your app looks amazing! I'm a huge fan of elastic drums and you guys make quality software I respect a lot.

    I'm just on a mission for a good real-time poly pitch shift and so far tonestack is the best I can find on ios that's real time. Harmony eight is fast but the poly setting sounds like a chorus pedal. Audiostretch sounds beautiful but it's not a real time effect

    Might be barking up the wrong thread

    There are some nice pitch shifters in EFX, which are heaps of fun to play with, but no poly one.
    Elastic FX is a multi effect app with 40 different rather "simple" effects and no Pitch Shift specialist.
    But I bet there is an app existing specialized for Pitch Shifting

    It may, depending on the whole scenary. I would rather use a joystick or dedicated touchpad for this. It’s not like yours is the one only app one would use say in a live situation. There may also be another looper, synth or mixer app upfront.. Basically, all what can be done on the screen while tweaking sounds should be MIDIfied too.

    Only two tweakable parameters per effect?
    What about delay, usually one is setting up time, feedback, mix as the very least?

    Would dedicate anothe phone probably.
    Must be able to send CC on patch recall from the app.
    You can recall patches via Program Change?

    I’d like to be able to trigger the ‘KP2 style’ touch mode via midi. Right now it doesn’t appear this is possible.

    But I like the app. Thanks.

  • Great app. I just want the recorded parameter loops to be longer, or maybe a toggle to play them out of sync with one another. You know, for science!

    I think this was in the early beta version, was disappointed when it disappeared. I'm about 88% sure this wasn't a dream.
