Sculpt samples and sequence them in real time. Ton brings a classic step sequencer and an advanced audio engine to your iPad, enabling you to create rich and modulated rhythmic sequences. WORKFLOW • Build rhythmic sequences using the step-sequencer, or play live using the drum pads • Add movement to any sequence using PARAMETER LOCKS: any step can be assigned specific parameter values (pitch, saturation, volume…), a feature that can be used creatively to build melodies, add variation and make the overall sound feel more natural and organic • Store your beats in PATTERNS, and recall them with a single tap immediately, without ever going out of tempo • Use Ton in various setups, thanks to Audiobus and Ableton Link integration AUDIO ENGINE • Mutate samples using the provided parameters • Each track has its own multimode resonant filter, saturation effect and amplitude envelope • Glue everything together using the Delay and Reverb master effects TECH SPECS • Unlimited parameter locks • 6 tracks per project • 1 multimode resonant filter per track • 1 saturation effect per track • 1 sequence per track, up to 4 bars long • Delay and Reverb send effects • 16 patterns per project, with store/recall behavior • Up to 128 samples per project • Ableton Link integration • Audiobus integration • Inter-App Audio integration • Sample-level timing accuracy • Sample import from iCloud, Dropbox, AudioShare and iTunes File Sharing (in-app purchase) • Tempo from 20 to 999 BPM
Really like the workflow of Ton. The parameter locks for each drum step is very much like an Elektron type machine and is a winner. Very cool, quick and creative to work with. For example, you can parameter lock the pitch, decay, FX send, pan, level, etc. for each step of a sample in a pattern. I recently discovered you can even parameter lock a different sample into each drum step of a pattern! I do not know of any other drum machine on iOS that can do this. Excellent work developer! Abelton Link allows realtime jamming with other apps. It does not come with many samples but Ton provides easy import of user samples from iCloud, AudioShare, and Dropbox. This alone is worth the price of admission. If the developer continues to update Ton with more factory sample content and features, it could become the go to drum machine for those seeking that Elektron drum sequencing vibe without the price tag.
This is a hidden gem! I’ve never been able to work with anything that had parameter locks before - loving this feature! 😍 Would be amazing if we could load an Auv3 fx app into the reverb and delay slots, to bypass the internal fx and use our fav fx apps inside Ton for send 1 and 2. Would also like to sync changing patterns to start on the downbeat of the next bar as an option. GREAT APP, Thanks for this beast! 🤓👊
Really, the app has a nice interface but that’s pretty much it. It’s capabilities are very limited. Maybe in 2010 this would be an app to play with for a day or two...not it 2019. In response to the developer’s reply. The app needs: ***Basic MIDI implementation with IN and OUT ***adjustable step number. Only 16 steps are currently possible. Yes, workaround is to use multiple bars and increase tempo but that is not convenient as you can’t see all the steps on one page ***better / easier polyrhythmic patterns creation and swing ***better tempo adjustment, currently it takes endless spins of the wheel to double the tempo *** tap tempo. No tap tempo in an app that is advertised as a real time / live performance app?? ***basic sample management functionality such as trimming and sample reversing ***mixer. Currently volume, reverb, etc parameters can’t be quickly adjusted globally per track ***record mode in which performance can be recorded (hitting pads creates steps in real time) ***audio export functionality and MIDI export ***start & stop functionality when used as an IAA with AUM and Audiobus
This thing is absolutely fantastic, can’t believe it’s free. I was searching high and low for something like this but I’m still searching because I need it as an AU. Great interface, uncluttered, gives me just the controls I want to tweak for drum samples.
So they changed the interface. No big deal! It's the parameter locking in an easily accessible package that makes this fun. It would be nice to see separate outs in AUM or other host. Otherwise, I like it.
