April 06 2020 iPad Beatwave Shaper Altispace generative session Part IX of an exploratory series as I attempt to learn how to use screen recording software. This one used the excellent Beatwave app. The app is limited in how you can shape sounds (which are optional extra buys) but very neat if you need to generate some random notes or beats.

I start out simply by letting Beatwave do its thing with a synth patch and then add in Shaper and later Altispace. I spent some time checking out the interactions between the two external effects and the ones built into Beatwave. Closer to the end, I change over to a drum sample kit and really push the Shaper while messing with speeds both in the randomization as well as the overall tempo of the piece.
