Rhythm Necklace v1.0.5 iOS-ICPDA
A rhythm is a repeating pattern of musical events in time. Western notations indicates these events with notes of different duration, placed on a line. Another way to represent rhythm is to position those events on a circle, with the distance between the events corresponding to the space between those events in time. This representation is called Rhythm Necklace notation, because the pattern of note events resembles beads on a necklace. This notation makes it easy to see rhythmic properties like symmetry and spacing, and it’s especially helpful for seeing where one rhythm is simply a rotation or a reflection of another.

Make music with shapes. Rhythm Necklace is a sequencer for composing rhythmic loops.

See music from a new perspective with Rhythm Necklace, the playful yet powerful tool for improvisation and composition. Tap, flip and rotate simple shapes to explore complex polyrhythms. Gestural control of beat distribution algorithms allows for the step-by-step generation of rhythmic shapes. Layer intricate beats in a matter of minutes, then save them for later or export to MIDI.

Build rhythms on up to four necklaces.
Adjust the length of each individual cycle to quickly create complex rhythmic ratios
Use a collection of Audiok.info rhythm building algorithms and geometric transformations to create and morph your rhythm.
Tap your tempo, use a slider for transitions, or manually type the global speed of your song
Choose from a variety of pitched sounds and percussive sample sets.
Quickly modulate between notes in four musical modes (pentatonic, major, minor, chromatic) and five octaves.
Customize the attack and panning of sounds to suit your composition
Save your sessions and export them as midi.
E-mail copies of midi sessions to yourself. These can be opened and edited on most DAWs.
Midi in/out allows you to fully customize your sounds and record your compositions in real time within an external DAW environment.
The term ‘rhythm necklace’ is used in music to refer to circular representations of repeating patterns. By thinking about rhythms as shapes rather than a linear timeline, it’s easier to see geometric properties that make them enjoyable, such as evenness and symmetry. Often, even subtle changes to the visual interface can completely transform how a rhythm sounds. Rhythm Necklace is a tool for both advanced and novice musicians alike, as well as anyone who wants to think about rhythms in a new way.

This technology enables you to get an improved sound rendering and to fully enjoy the structuring and the rhythmic effects.

For more complex tracks and if the automatic analysis isn’t enough accurate, you can also manually adjust the BPM of each track. Use the ‘Tap Mode’ to spot the right tempo by tapping out the rhythm to align each times with the beatlist, or use the dedicated spectrum to visually adjust the tempo. The more accurate you can be, the better audio result you will get. 100% success!

And for more convenience, edjing Pro automatically saves your settings, BPM, cues and loops so they can be loaded for the next reading.

Create a brand new kind of beatbox! Freeze a specific part of the spectrum and replay each time of this part in any order you like. The feature enables you to freeze an audio sequence from a specific part of the track to play the frozen beats that are synchronized on the rhythm. Guaranteed success!
