Besides the usual fixes and stability improvements, this v1.8 release also includes two major technical implementations that made possible 

  1. Keyboard Splitting
  2. Chord Memorizer

It will take quite a while to explore all the new possibilities and achievements unlocked here, to be honest, but first internal tests showed that the latest processing circuit …

… is now capable of so much more techniques! -- Here's a first review:

1. Keyboard Splitting
You can now split the input- and/or output-keyboards into as many mute zones as you desire (yes, it works for both sections, INPUT & OUTPUT, separately). To reveal these mute keys click on the "INPUT" or "OUTPUT" label to the left …

… and then simply 'click' or 'clickswipe' the keys you want to mute.

Note: The OUTPUT keyboard provides both, black and white key muting, with the INPUT keyboard there can be only white keys muted -- and also, the INPUT mute keys are only active when POWER is ON (=tranposing enabled). Mute keys are not part of the database and therefore will be forgotten when closing the app again.

These keyboard splittings literally open the door to a new world of transposing methods -- especially when using them in combination with the already existing 'new instance' feature. So eg, two different instances can be configured that way, that they will react simultaneously to the same MIDI source …

Multiple Instances MIDI Processing AutoTonic v1.8 Routing Scalereharmoization

Note: New 'Instances' of AutoTonic can be opened by clicking on the little double-square icon on the bottom far right. With every newly opened instance the INPUT and OUTPUT scrollwheels (=MIDI channel numbers) will count a step higher. Channel #1, #2, #3, etc, … so remember to correct the MIDI channel #numbers in case you want them to listen to the same source/send them to the same signal destination.

Depending on the combination and arrangement method of the provided implementations (Mute keys, Instances, Channel Numbers, Active Input/Output Ports, Stackings, …) you can achieve now the ultimate complex processing performances. As always, creativity is your only limitation, but here's just a few thoughts what you could do now with the 'Keyboard Splitting' …

  • Use Zones (eg, Left Hand triggers Chords -> Right Hand does 'Solo')
    • Create your own 'MIDI Channel' Zones (Multi-Instrument Triggerings)
    • Create Mappings that will dynamically morph while playing
    • Set up 'grace notes' that can be triggered completely independent
    • Use 'Feedback Loops' to automate harmony switchings
      • Create Overtone Scales that will vary from octave to octave
      • Use scales that will be played ascending/descending differently
        • And many more …
          2. Chord Memorizer:
          It is now possible to store different Chord-Stackings (=the "x" and "o" variables) into different Headers …
          AutoTonic Realtime Chord Switching MIDI Software Processing App Scales Chords Scalereharmonization
          … that means you can have a first Header (1) with for example "xoxx" and then set up a second Header (2) using another stacking like for example "xox" and then recall the stacking in realtime, while playing.

          So not only can you easily play alternating chord inversions that way …

          1. xooxox
          2. xoxox
          3. xoxoox

            etc,
          … but it also allows of the most colorful and complex harmony switchings thinkable of. Anything from two intervals, up to triads, fourths or even complex patterns like "oxooooxooxoxooxxox" can be used and mixed together live now -while performing- and all truly modal in any key/in any scale/with any of the 24,576 available scales.

          Note: "x/o-Stackings will be only stored permanently into a Header when SCALE=Locked" … similar to "PitchCorrection+/- is only stored when TONIC=Locked".

          --> Since many of the new possibilities with this update are not obvious at first sight, it will require some time and experimenting to really expose them and to be able to provide tutorials etc, simply stay connected … with AutoTonic there's always something in the oven.
