Tardigrain - question and tip

I finally got around to playing with Tardigrain last night and am having a blast with it. What an amazing app! I have one tip and one question;

Tip: Check out Legowelt's free Minimoog Sample pack: http://www.synthtopia.com/content/2018/03/30/free-legowelt-minimoog-sample-library-features-uncorrupted-walnut-wooden-sensuality/ A lot of these sound fantastic in Tardigrain!

Question: Has anyone used a Roli Block or Rise (or Lightpad M) with Tardigrain? Does Tardigrain respond to the MPE from the Roli's the same way it responds to the iPad keyboard (i.e., the X/Y modulation on each key)? I decided to not get a Block because I didn't think I'd use the MPE functionality much, but Tardigrain seems like the killer app for MPE (and special thanks to Jakob Haq for the awesome tutorial!! - )

  • Hey @Kiki_90291, there is no MPE support but I am thinking about picking up a seaboard block and implementing it. I kind of know how it works just need a bit of time I guess. :)

    Cheers for the tip.

  • @humbletune Could you please explain the elusive “set loop point” in tardigrain?

  • I just came here to share my excitement about this AMAZING, FREAKING, BRILLIANT, CLEVER, GENIUS, OUSTANDING and FUTURISTIC sounding app called “Tardigrain”.

    Bye :smiley:

  • @humbletune - that's awesome! I hope you can get it going - I think that would be an great addition. Truly an amazing app!

  • Love this app so much

    I just saw this thread and decided to buy the app. It’s so good, I can’t believe more people aren’t talking about this.
    Yes Mpe support would be over the top amazing. please do!
    Also, another idea would be ability to and send a midi cc signal out of the app to another app to control the other app via the key’s vertical slider in Tadigan
    thanks again for making this app

    I swear to god. People who do not create a folder when they zip files are detestable. Now ive gotta click 200+times just to delete this junk.

    Edit: not saying the files you posted are junk, theyre very usable. But they gotta go due to the violation of internet etiquette.

    Thumbjam and Geoshred are both MPE controllers; much less expensive than a Roli. Please do consider implementing MPE.

    Yup, happened to me too. That was the most painful minute I experienced all minute.

    #metoo; had to tap 200 times on small circles in Audioshare edit. Was mildly surprised/disappointed that AS did not have drag to quickly multi-select.

    The Legowelt files? It was in a folder when I downloaded to my PC. Does Audioshare handle zip files differently?

    @humbletune I maybe should have emphasised that my issue with the lack of preset sharing isn't down to being too lazy to import sample between Au and standalone and try to replicate settings, that's pretty tedious but something I've done for some patches. It's actually mostly because I use my phone as a field recorder for found sounds and lofi instruments recording and then I use it for portable sound design in Tardigrain etc. It's Nigh impossible to transfer a Tardigrain patch from phone to ipad. Soooo many steps. I found the equation just ate too much time to be something I can validate in my day to day. Really hope its possible to share patches between devices soon and also between Au and standalone. Would probably make this my most used synth...

  • @oat_phipps re: Legowelt zip - Open in AudioShare, but click do not unzip, then create a new folder in AudioShare, move the zip into that then unzip....
    I feel your pain, as I have done it so many times, so now it is second nature for me to do it this way!
    I have spent hours recording stuff and loading samples into Tardigrain, just getting lost amongst the Granular landscapes... love it!
    big respect @humbletune
    :)

    Haha I know that, but it’s too late now! I usually do it as a failsafe but I figured a sample pack like this with a ton of files would already be foldered out of user respect. In the end, it’s only a small deal, but it IS irksome.
