At ANR we love new technologies help with the music creation process. Audiomodern got in touch with us to announce the release of “Riffer”, a smart and modern MIDI riff-generator that creates random patterns for your software and hardware instruments.
Riffer is available now in AU and VST formats for Windows and macOS. There is also an app available for iPad, Riffer for iPad. We haven’t had a chance to test Riffer yet, but it seems right up our alley. We’ll have more on this, stay tuned.
According to the company, Riffer is designed to feed anything that accepts MIDI signal, software & hardware. You can choose from 50+ scales, set pattern complexity, steps, start and end points, pitch, transposition, motion, measures, and much more to serve as the inspiration for your musical masterpieces.
Built both for studio and live performance
Riffer allows the generation of fresh ideas, sequences, melodies, riffs and musical patterns. You can then manipulate and turn them into something of your own, or, let the software run endlessly using the infinity mode for a completely random score.
Users can export the MIDI data using a simple drag and drop process to their DAWs. When using the app version, you can send MIDI over Wi-Fi, or select CoreMIDI for inter-app communication and feed any compatible hardware device.
