No matter what style of music you write Outta Bass has something to offer you.
The philosophy behind Outta Bass is twofold:
Firstly the interface of an instrument is just as responsible for the sound as the actual sonic components. The challenge was finding how to cater for large control surfaces that work best with fingers on a touchscreen, for a large number of parameters, on something as small as 9.7" in size, without hiding anything, that was also fluid and intuitive to use.
Secondly with synths, we've long moved past the point of just playing keys on a keyboard. Lets play everything, easily record it in a DAW, edit it, chop it, merge it, loop it.
From these principles Outta Bass was born, featuring a fluid, modular interface designed from the ground up for a touchscreen allowing you to drill in deep when needed and be adapted for your own workflows or performances. Tweaking parameters is easy as they all support coarse and fine adjustments and can be played and recorded via MIDI just like notes and then further manipulated in your favourite DAW. Additionally simple sequences can be setup and played across the keyboard, automatically staying in one of the over 300 musical keys.
At the end of the day a synth is all about the sound. Outta Bass has a distinct raw and edgy sound that can be tempered for a pure electronic piece or pushed hard to be right at home in the grungiest rock. Sample sounds of presets are in the App Previews, on the Outta Bass website and you'll also find them in videos on twitter, facebook & you tube.
I really enjoyed creating this app and I hope you'll enjoy it too.
