TRACE:Trace is a versatile sequencer for sample based music creation.It´s a drumcomputer, groovebox, sample animator and metronome with onboard effects and live performing skills.Use it to produce rhythms, complete playbacks, atmospheric soundtracks, etc..It comes with a really special sequencer which is priority driven, means: One channel trigger at a time to create unusual patterns with automatic generated death notes, unless you set channel swing/shift to on.Do not have to preprogram any sequence.Just dial in the pattern length and tempo, choose a sample and divisor for each channel and let it swing.Create a song with the arranger and synchronize your patterns and selected channel delays to the global song speed.Play your animated samples, patterns and songs live with multiple realtime FX options per channel/group and use the internal recorder to tape your session to wav.Each channel includes:Beat divisor: 16 divisors, including different subdivisions of 1/4 note. Changes happen on the fly, with preview.Sound:Make your selection out of the provided onboard sounds and import your own samples and soundbanks to dial in your favorite tone.Changes happen on the fly, with preview. Volume:Set the volume for each channel.Solo/Mute:Select channel solo or mute a various number of channels and controll this group with just one button.Swing/Probably:Bring your beats up to life and build spacy rhythmical sculptures, jazzy grooves and audio landscapes. Includes negative swing.RSP:Reverse sample playback (with group option: reversal).Shortener:Divide the sample length by different factors (with group option: undo).Effects:Play your soundfiles with a fully featured Delay, a really weird Ring Modulator, Bit Crusher and Varispeed, find the right place in the stereo field with Panorama and let your 2 track output sound wide and airy.IN SONG MODE: DISPLAYING UPCOMING PATTERN.IN PATTERN MODE:HOLD = CHOOSE NEXT PATTERN KLICK = START THIS PATTERN AFTER ACTUAL LOOP IS FINISHED.HOLD = TEMPO SYNC ON NEXT PATTERN CURRENT STEP VALUE ACTUAL PATTERN NEXT PATTERN.RERUN STATUS IN SONG MODE CURRENT RERUN DIVISOR - KLICK = CHANNEL SOLO - HOLD = LOAD DIVISOR X/1,2,3,4,6,8 = TIMES PER LOOP (x/1=1) 1/2,4,6,8,16,32 = TIMES PER TEMPO (1/4=1) (AT 60 BPM: 1/4 MEANS 60 x PER MINUTE,Â 1/8 MEANS 120 x PER MINUTE, AND SO ON)SD/3,5,6,7 = 1/4 BEAT SUB DIVISION.- KLICK = MUTE/ASSIGN TO GROUP - HOLD = LOAD SAMPLE (FIRST 3 SIGNS) CHANNEL LEVEL INDICATOR - CHANNEL ASSIGNED = SET VALUES OF SWING AND PROBABLY FOR THIS CHANNEL.SWING 1/n = MOVE EVERY 2ND STEP 0% = NO SWING 100% = ON NEXT STEP -100% = ON PREVIOUS STEP SHIFT x/n = MOVE ALL STEPS 0% = NO SHIFT 100% = ON NEXT STEP PROBABLY = SAMPLE PLAYBACK PROBABILITY 100% = EVERY STEP WILL BE PLAYED 0% = NO STEP WILL BE PLAYED.PRIORITY PLAYBACK (ONE CHANNEL AT A TIME) >>> IS FROM LEFT TO RIGHT>>> IF SWING/SHIFT IS OFF = NO PARALLEL PLAYBACK ON NEXT CHANNEL (MEANS:IF THERE IS THE SAME DIVISOR, THERE´S NO SOUND!

VISUAL:Visual is a simple to use optical metronome with an extreme contrasty pulse and different methods of apportionment within the display. Set your tempo, time signature and color preferences, press start and be guided. Display changes between your favorite group colors or gap (no action on beat). You also can store patterns and make songs with the arranger. Visual is a multifaceted metronome, so you can address the display, torch (4 stage), vibration (4 stage, android only) and sound. Every combination is possible. The big plus of an optical metronome + you can stop follow and come back later + unharmed your acoustic perception + no headphones required + multiple person use Use it alone or with your whole band, Visual will be „loud“ enough.TIME SIGNATURE- SET THE NUMBER OF BEATS BETWEEN 1 AND 64 (OR HOLD DOWN ANY BEAT TO SET) - SET THE BPM-FACTOR: 1=QUARTER /2=HALF / 4=CURRENT / 8=DOUBLE / 16= QUAD TEMPO VIA SEGMENT: - TAP OR SWIPE UP EACH SEGMENT TO INCREASE - SWIPE DOWN TO DECREASE - HOLD TO NEUTRALIZE. VIA TAP BUTTON: - TAP IN THE TEMPO - HOLD TO START SEQUENCE - HOLD AGAIN TO STOP. COLOR: - SELECT THE GROUP COLOR FOR EACH GROUP (I/II/III/IV) VIA STEP THROUGH THE BUTTON - ASSIGN ONE OF THIS GROUPS AND GAP (BLACK) TO EACH BEAT IN THE SEQUENCE VIA STEP THROUGH. DISPLAY ANIMATION: COMPLETE - KLICK TO CHOOSE, DIVISION IN STRIPE ORDER - KLICK TO CHOOSE - HOLD TO SET APPORTIONMENT, DIVISION IN CIRCLE ORDER - KLICK TO CHOOSE - HOLD TO SET APPORTIONMENT. STORAGE: PATTERN: DOUBLE KLICK = LOAD PATTERN KLICK = ASSIGN TO CONTROLS. SONG: DOUBLE KLICK = LOAD SONG - KLICK = ASSIGN TO CONTROLS. ZEITMASCHINE: DELAY TIME MODE:Zeitmaschine is a delay time calculator with all divisors and multipliers relative to the time measurement you have done.Calculate delay times in milliseconds (ms) and beats per minute (bpm). Set the desired tempo via the tab-button, or write it down in ms/bpm, all options will be computed and a huge amount of 21 matched delay times will shown up at once, including dotted and triplet values.Take these determined times and put it to the delay time display of your effect or sound device, use it to set the right attack and release times of your dynamics (compressor/gate) in addiction to the song tempo, or just convert ms to bpm and vice versa. Works with virtual-, 19“-, or stage devices (display needed).Zeitmaschine is a pretty quick app, brilliant for live engineering, where you can choose the perfect delay time in seconds, without scrolling the knobs of your FX-device back and forth. On the other hand you got an ultimate overview of alternative delay times, that´s great for doing experiments while mixing a track in a recording studio or in your DAW. You can use it on drums, vocals, guitars, ….you name it, and give them a complete new rhythmical structure.CONVERTER MODE: Convert time related values between sampling rate, sample value and frequency (Hz) assigned to bar, ½, ¼ (current), 1/8, 1/16, 1/32 beat length.FILESIZE MODE: Set the duration, bit depth, sample rate and channel number and get the filesize information for uncompressed files. Add the kbps rate to get the filesize for compressed files.DELAY LINE MODE:Set the distance to main P.A. in meter or feet, add the temperature in Celsius or Fahrenheit and get the right delay times to delay the main P.A. to the backline and the line P.A. to the main P.A.DELAY TIME MODE:The segment displays are active. Tap or swipe up each segment to increase the value (+1).Swipe down to decrease the value (-1). Hold each segment to neutralize (0). The input or feedback of the tap-button is allways based on a 1/4 time signature and not changeable. The numerical display depends on the divisor/multiplier setting. With the divisor/multiplier controller you can choose a factor between 1/256 and 4/1 in addiction to the ms/bpm input you´ve done and set all values automatically in relation to this divisor/multiplier.With reference to the adjustments you´ve done, there's a list of 18 values. Those displays are not active.CONVERTER MODE: With the sample rate controller you can choose a rate between 8000 Hz and 192000 Hz in addiction to the ms/bpm input you´ve done and set the sample values in relation to this sample rate. With reference to the adjustments you´ve done, there's a list of 6 values for each: ms, samples and Hz.FILESIZE MODE: Set the bit depth between 8 bit and 32 bit. Set the sample rate between 8000 Hz and 192.000 Hz. Set the channel number between mono and 32 channels. Set compression between 96 kbps and 320 kbps.DELAY LINE MODE: Set the temperature between 50 and -20 degrees Celsius/ 122 and -4 degrees Fahrenheit to determine the sonic speed. Set the distance (select meter or feet) between the backline and the main P.A.Set the distance between main P.A and delay line P.A. If you set a delay between backline and main P.A., you have to add both delay times to set a correct delayed line P.A. Note: Be sure to add at least 10 ms to compensate the Haas-Effect.
