What’s new in Ondes version 1.1?  A lot!

SWARM OSCILLATORS

Two extra oscillators to thicken the stew.  Detune them and tell them lag behind to create a swarm effect. 

HOLD BUTTON 

Press the ‘hold’ button to sustain notes indefinitely.  Play melodies over top or move the sustained notes around. 

MIDI Mode

You asked for it… You can now control other synths and electronic instrument with Ondes using MIDI.  Tuning systems and all.  Please read the instructions though — there are a few things you should know about first!

NEW MODULATION PARAMETERS

The Y Axis can now control more parameters!

Assign the Y Axis to control wavetable LFO rate & depth.

Assign the Y Axis to control filter LFO rate & depth.

Adjust the Y Axis to control volume from -100% to 100%

INTER APP AUDIO TRANSPORT

Using Ondes as an instrument in Garageband or other DAW just got easier!  You can you control the play, record, and rewind buttons from right inside Ondes.  

KEYBOARD RANGE 

Choose between small (1.5 octave) and large (2.5 octave) range for the keyboard.

SNAPPING 

New “Scale” and “Chromatic” snapping modes. 

SCALES 

In the mood for some modes?  How about the “prometheus” scale?  Choose from a bunch of pre-loaded scales or create your own.  Save and reuse your custom scale types! 

TUNING SYSTEMS 

Put all that microtonal space to good use with alternate tuning systems.  Choose from experimental and traditional tuning systems such as Just Intonation,  Pythagorean, and Highland Bagpipe tuning.  Create your own tunings or import & export .scala files.  (Some limitations apply)  

TUNING REFERENCE 

Ever feel like A440 isn’t right for you? How about A415?  That’s more like it.
