iPhone web app controlling machine track parameters.
Simple web app that randomizes the chosen machine track parameters trough WebMidi CC’s (MIDI Control Change).
Choose the machine you want and a track => instant random preset. Just save the pattern our save it as a preset.
This is a “soft” randomization. Tuning, Delay and LFO parameters are left out of the equation for quicker and more usable results. I’ll try to incorporate the LFO later. On some machines the LFO can be a big help. But randomizing it is pretty wild. So I will need to find only a few of the LFO parameters that will work or make it an option to select.

Limited compatibility. Check the WebMidi standard and use compatible web browser.
Testing the idea of sending MIDI CC to the Elektron Model:Cycles’s for chord machine “shape” change. You can test the app here https://wavesontable.com/chordmachine.html
There are “skips” in the changes of shapes from Maj to min caused be a delay in midi communication. Not sure if it’s possible to eliminate it. Recorded on iPad with camera app and connected Model:cycles trough USB sending the audio to the iPad.
Utility webapp useful for setting up some of the parameters on an old Line6 POD (first 1998 edition).
I remember that the users manual a book like brochure for my Line6 POD called POD pilot was such a cool thing. With all the pictures of the modeled gear and story behind it. Other gear, pedals had only a b/w copy of a manual or worst an pdf on a CD/link. This was very different in many aspects.
This small utility webapp is called POD 98′ navigator and should be useful for setting up some of the parameters on an old Line6 POD (first 1998 edition) that are not controllable trough the knobs and front panel switches.
I made this to control the reverb type switching from spring to hall. Also to work with the effect parameters. Mainly the Chorus 2 settings. I remember there was a cool “stopped” settings when you go to zero with the “predelay” parameter and everything else zeroed. It creates a cool stereo wide effect.
If there will be interest and time I may add more parameters. The main idea is to control the device from its knobs and use this only for the hidden controls. Maybe you use a Ctrl panel, your DAW, other Midi CC app. This is just more simple and you really don’t need anything else to install to run this.
On iOS i use the Web Midi browser (linked below) on PC a chrome browser.
New app is here. This one is oriented on the live use of the volca keys synth. The layout is geared towards mobile specifically iOS. This web app sends MIDI CC data trough connected midi interface to KORG Volca Keys synth for quick preset loading. The idea is to use previously captured patch data from volcakeyspatch app for 6 patches. Thanks to the app you will have a bank of your own 6 presets ready for quick loading to the volca synth.
Volca keys patch is a web app for controlling sound data of Korg Volca Keys synth. It offers a simple user interface in a web browser environment. Thanks to the webmidi standard (https://www.w3.org/TR/webmidi/) it works on supported browsers including mobile.
The basic idea is to control the sound with the onscreen controls and saving the results in form of “patchdata” as text file for later use. This can be done with a lot of apps, DAW’s etc. This is just the lightweightest version to me and hopefully will get some use by other users.
The random patch generator is especial fun for quickly getting very different sound out of the volca keys. By tweaking some crucial parameters like vco egint or lfo vco int to zero you get quickly some very usable sound. You can listen to results of quick random patch changes on my soundcloud here.
If you have some suggestions please comment here on wavesontable.com I have a few ideas to incorporate into the design like custom webaudio based lfo’s, obviously a better preset management, some midi filtering (using the Novation Launchkeys knobs for control) and tweaks to the random generation pattern.
It is a work in progress, but from version 0.1 its functional and a lot of fun if you have a volca keys some midiinterface and a web browser that supports the WebMIDI standard (Chrome is the best, on iOS I have successfully tested the free Web MIDI Browser).
