Screen Dumps Of RavelNotes In Action
Using theMidi Configuration Panel: In this case, sound module nr. 2 plays on both internal
sound and on Midi channel 2, and 1 and 4 on internal sound only. Pitch bend is directed to
Midi channel 3 and modulation to Midi channel 2 here. Below, the guitar keyboard is visible.
It has 11 strings tuned EADGB E ADGBE. Impossible on a real guitar, on this “fretboard”
you can tap more than one note on the same “string” simultaneously! The keyboard is much
longer than the available screen space, but like all other notedrones, you can move it around
Four synths configured here to be running in the background, controlled via Core Midi
by RavelNotes. In this case the apps are: Waldorf Attack (drums on Midid channel 10),
Arturia iMini, Arturia iSEM, and Arturia iProphet !
If you make notedrones send to Midi channel 10 here, they play on the drumkit of
Arturia Attack. (see its row of drum sounds in the image above)
Normally, one would have each synth to listen on a separate Midi channel to RavelNotes.
However, nothing can stop you having multiple synth apps listening to the same Midi channel.
(Well, except of course for the hardware limitations of the iPad type you are using)
You can also play “stand alone” that is without other apps by using the internal
General Midi sound presets of RavelNotes itself.
Notes & chords: drag them from the toolbar to any position the workspace.
To deleted them simply drag them back under the toolbar.
Several keyboard templates are included. After getting used to these, in most cases one
can play much faster and easier than on traditional keyboards, which are preset to the C-key..
This one here is orthogonal which means that you can easily switch tonal keys for instance
to play a certain melody in C# instead of C just use the same positions moved one place
to the right.
Here, three notedrones are selected. You can copy, cut, paste, transpose and even join
selected notedrones into a custom chord. Also unpack selected chords to individual
notes. On the left here are chords playing on sound modules 2 and 3. If you move
notedrones on top of each other they play simultaneously when touched.
