nu desine updates free AlphaSphere to v1.3.0                  03rd April 2014

nu desine has announced that AlphaLive version 1.3.0 is now available.

"AlphaLive™ is a standalone application that enables the AlphaSphere to operate as a number of common devices found within electronic music production. Presented with an attractive and intuitive interface, the software allows you to program the functionality of the AlphaSphere to a highly customized level, ultimately creating an expressive electronic musical instrument and controller that is perfect for composition, performance, and production."

New features:

  • AlphaSphere LED Configuration and Control – The RGB LED inside the AlphaSphere can now be completely customised – change the colour/brightness, make it flash in sync to AlphaLive’s clock or an external MIDI Clock, as well create completely custom colour changes and animations using external MIDI CC messages. Some LED settings can be controlled with pads (via Controller Mode) or elite buttons. 

  • MIDI Dynamic Channel Mode – This is a useful new feature that allows MIDI channels to be dynamically applied to pads when they are pressed, giving each pad a unique MIDI channel. This can be used to create polyphonic pitch bend, as well being an alternative to polyphonic aftertouch when it is not available, allowing notes to be modulated individually.

  • MIDI Clock – You can now send MIDI Clock messages to sync external MIDI software/hardware with AlphaLive’s clock, or you can receive MIDI clock messages to sync AlphaLive to an external MIDI source.

  • Pressure Latch Mode – This mode allows you to ‘latch’ the pressure value of a pad. This feature will be most useful when wanting to control a MIDI slider/dial in a more conventional way, without the control going back to zero when you release the pad.

  • Added a ‘View’ menu that includes some shortcuts for viewing different displays and interface elements within AlphaLive.

  • You can now change the text of the pads on the Pad Layout section to display pad contents rather than just pad numbers. Change this via the Preferences pane. Please note that this feature is still in beta mode.

  • A new option that sets only the most recently pressed MIDI pad to have control of any type of MIDI channel pressure data (channel aftertouch, pitch bend, mod wheel or CC data) of a particular channel at any time. This option will prevent the glitchy/jumpy effect caused by pressing multiple pads set to the same MIDI message. Access this option via the Preferences pane.

Minimum System Requirements Mac Intel machine running OS X 10.5 or later Windows XP SP3 or late.
