    Pre-orders are now open!

    https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/gestrument-pro/id1105890031?ls=1&mt=8&at=10lJXr&ct=gp

    The pre-order sale price is $8.99. The release is scheduled for 25 september, at the full price of $16.99.

    After release, we will also make a bundle with the old and new Gestrument so that users who bought the original Gestrument can get the new one at a discount. (The price you paid for old Gestrument is subtracted from the bundle price, so the discount depends on if you bought it at full price or during a sale, etc).

    Great been beta it and have the old version so a bundle no brainer.

    Congrats! the instrument samples are awesome. Really great for standalone and as a sequencer for other apps. This will be a massive hit.

    What kind of instrument samples does it have. Do you mean real instruments like orchestral etc ?

    It has samples split into different genres as it were. It has electronic, a live band set up (guitar, bass, keys, drums etc..) a selection from a orchestra. It ain't massive and all encompassing but focused and concise. In fact the samples were a pleasant surprise to me because they are very usable in the context of this app. I was just thinking about the midi sequencing ability beforehand.

    Thanks. Sounds like a lot of fun

    Agree, especially with the orchestral samples. I find myself using the onboard sounds rather than going out to the myriad of sound source apps I own. The whole thing "just works".

    Wow that’s a serious endorsement. Do you use it like that in a recording capacity as an IAA or as a live jam

    Both, but mostly as a live jam in the early days because it's so damn fun and mesmerizing. The looping feature just opens up so many possibilities because you get a groove going or an ambient base layer (or 3 or 4) established and then "jam" with the wide variety of types of sounds you have within the app. This is one where it just feels right to concentrate efforts in one place, but admittedly, the approach they've taken here matches the sounds I hear in my head (mix of orchestral, electronic, ambient, etc). For those who create a very specific type of EDM, it may not appeal in the same way (but could still work as a controller).

  • Preordered and done. This is the greatest.

    Can’t wait. 👍

  • I'm on the beta - haven't had much time to test it what with one thing and another, but it's a different beast to the original. Can't remember what I paid for the original but $8.99 for the pre-order is a bargain.

    Happy, anxious and eager to pre-order BUT as a previous 'owner' should I instead wait to benefit from the previous buyer discount? Bit puzzled.

    It looks like the current price of the original Gestrument is $6.99, so the presale would appear to be the better deal. I don’t recall what I paid for the original either, but I feel like it’s been on sale for a discount several times.

    I’m all in on the pre-order. I’ve used the original exclusively on several tracks, and the beta was inspiring.

    From About 8:00 into... one can only imagine having IBassist and Future Drummer synced to this thing... just amazing...

    Thanks..

    Danke Boss.

    I need to revisit the original, but the new one I’m sure is much more user friendly. I had a quick go earlier, triggering a couple of synths with it, and came up with a rather lovely thing. No idea what I’m doing, but it sounded good.

    I tend to avoid apps that take the hard work out of making music - I like to suffer for my art - but you can strip it back and just get it to play apps and scales, for example.

    If you like the original you’ll be happy with the new one.

  • I've preordered, even though it violates my 'nothing but AUv3' rule. I'm in the beta program, and it's a fascinating app.

  • Pre-ordered! Looks like fun!

  • Oh man this looks like the new king for generative stuff. Drooling at the easy transposition on the fly. Sold!

    As a beta tester I have to warn people that this intro price is a giant bug, I haven't got to importing audio or midi out yet, the onboard sounds are very easy to get lost in. Can't fault anything else so I trust the developers will fix this problem!

  • @BlueGreenSpiral said:

    Indeed, a steal at the intro price. Grab it while it's hot!

  • I don’t do pre-orders, it’s a ridiculous concept.

    I pre-ordered this one.

  • As a MIDI controller, what are the differences between this and the original Gestrument?

  • I think they have a place when you get half off, or save some money at least. Otherwise, yes, it seems ridiculous

  • @thesoundtestroom said:
    Here is that
    Pre Release look I mentioned earlier

    Thanks for the preview! Just thought I'd mention the reason why your input did not seem to do much in some of the presets is because the instruments were all playing back loops. We might need to be clearer in the descriptions pop ups that many are more showcasing "finished songs/ideas" and that in order to freely play on them you would need to tap the "Clear" button which clears all loops. Also, we should probably make a few more presets that are more instantly playable without a bunch of loops going on. ;)

    Maybe we can get a ‘pre-release’ so we can test this bug too..

    I guess $8.99 is a bug...

    Bought...
