Sound-Editierung

Erstelle am Bildschirm neue Sounds oder wandle existierende Klänge ab. Menüs waren gestern: Alle benötigten Parameter sind direkt erreichbar. Einstellungsänderungen werden interaktiv zwischen der MODALapp und deinem Modal-Synthesiser abgeglichen, um sie sofort überprüfen zu können. Von der Wellenformanwahl bis zu peniblen Filterkorrekturen, dem Direktzugriff auf Modulations-Slots und den schnellen Zugang zum Sequencer und seinen Animations-Spuren – hier lässt es sich zügig arbeiten. Da die MODALapp auch iOS- und Android-kompatibel ist, können Änderungen und Beeinflussungen mit intuitiven Bewegungen auf dem Touchscreen durchgeführt werden.

Patch-Verwaltung

Nicht alle Verwaltungsansätze sind gleich anwenderfreundlich. Bei Modal steht dagegen jederzeit die absolute Kontrolle über Dein Sound-Arsenal im Mittelpunkt! Ändere die Sound-, Sequenz- und Effektketten-Reihenfolge im komfortablen Drag & Drop-Verfahren, um live und im Studio zügig arbeiten zu können. Importiere und exportiere einzelne Sounds oder ganze Bibliotheken – die MODALapp sorgt dafür, dass es von jeder Kreation ein Backup gibt. Statt den Workflow nur zu erleichtern, setzt die MODALapp neue Maßstäbe für die unbürokratische und gleichzeitig effektive Sound-Verwaltung.

DAW-Integration

Produzenten und Komponisten empfehlen wir MODALplugin. Es verlagert den MODALapp-Bedienkomfort auf ein VST3- (Windows) oder AU/VST3-Umfeld (macOS) innerhalb einer DAW. Das MODALplugin bietet alles, was man als Produzent benötigt, darunter die einfache Automatisierung der MODALplugin-Parameter innerhalb eines Songs, das Laden der Sounds bei Aufrufen eines DAW-Projekts usw. Mit dem MODALplugin lässt sich Deine Kreativität nochmals erweitern!

Plattform-Kompatibilität

Bei Modal Electronics halten wir uns nicht mit der uralten Debatte Mac vs. PC auf – warum nicht mit jeder gängigen Plattform arbeiten? Aus diesem Grund ist MODALapp mit praktisch allen Computer- und Mobilgeräteplattformen kompatibel, einschließlich MacOS, iPadOS, iOS, Windows und Android.

Kinderleichte Updates

Nichts ist so nervtötend wie ein Update, wenn man gerade einen genialen Einfall hat. Daher räumt die MODALapp auf mit SysEx-Programmen und MIDI-Files von Drittanbietern und erlaubt es Anwendern, ihren Modal-Synth direkt mit der App zu aktualisieren. Möchtest du die Werkseinstellungen später wiederherstellen? Mit der MODALapp lässt sich dies kurz und schmerzlos realisieren. Daher erinnern wir gerne daran, Deine bis dahin intern gespeicherten Sounds vorher zu archivieren.

Schmerzlose Systemeinstellungen

Mit der MODALapp können Systemparameter schneller eingestellt werden. Ob MIDI-Kanäle, die Auswertung von MIDI Clock-Signalen, Aftertouch- und Anschlagansprache, MPE-Funktionen oder weitere übergreifende Parameter – alles kann schneller und effektiver eingestellt werden!
