We've barely had time for the haze of New Year to pass and WaveDNA have released version 1.3 of their beat/rhythmic generation software, Liquid Rhythm. Check out the new features below.
WaveDNA is excited to announce a major feature-packed update to Liquid Rhythm and Liquid Rhythm Intro, featuring workflow improvements and a set of entirely new tools to expand Liquid Rhythm's toolset in fun and flexible ways.
Major New Features:
- The BeatForm Shifter - The new BeatForm Shifter is a simple tool designed to work within selected regions to shift BeatForms to either left or right, allowing users to quickly try subtle new variations and experiment with a BeatForm combination.
- The BeatForm Tumbler - The new BeatForm Tumbler is a powerful and addictive dial interface designed to tumble through the BeatForms in the BeatForm Palette. Target any part of a beat and make four-bar loops more musical without spending hours manually moving notes.
- The Velocity Shapers - Liquid Rhythm's velocity controllers allow you to set a random range on velocity over a selected set of notes. Now, you can apply increasing and decreasing velocity 'shapes' to the notes in each '˜building block' of rhythm (BeatForms), a powerful update that helps create dynamic changes in your track for a more humanized feel.
Improvements and Updates
- Added key command to switch between '˜pencil' and '˜paint' Note Editing modes.
- ReGroover renamed to GrooveMover
- In Max-For-Live bridge mode (a.k.a. Liquid Clips), selecting the Arranger's channel header will now select regions in the Arranger (as a shortcut).
- Panels in the Molecule Tools bar will now remember their expand / collapse states for each time Liquid Rhythm is launched.
- Moving notes around the Arranger will cause a BarForm pattern to appear as a ghost in empty regions.
- Modifying MIDI Maps is now easier: Input devices can be changed and input channel IDs can be renumbered.
- Shift-clicking on a BarForm in the BarForm list will insert that relatively indexed BarForm into each selected region according to the instrument type in that track.
- Tempo can now be MIDI mapped (and controlled with a MIDI device).
- MIDI mappable commands were broken after 1.2.3 and are now are fixed in 1.3.0
- Fixed a crash that would occur when using the BeatBuilder's '˜Suggested List' when a region in the Arranger had been BarForm swapped.
- Fixed issues connecting to the audio engine
- Activation codes would sometimes be invalid if entered with leading / trailing blank space
- In some instances, BeatWeaver would glitch when a region was selected and moved
- In some instances, BeatWeaver would glitch when a BarForm was swapped in a region that was duplicated.
- Fixed bug when selecting multiple notes and dragging to change relative velocity.
- Fixed a bug that would cause the undo history to not be saved when running as a plugin
- Fixed a bug that would cause the audio engine to linger if the user force quit the application launcher.
