Bitheadz is offering an upgrade to its Voodoo sampling MIDI drum machine software. Version 1.2 will offer optimization for the G4 (Altivec), as well as several enhancements and new features.
Voodoo is software that plays samples and MIDI files. Samples and drum patterns can be triggered from the computer keyboard, a MIDI controller or a MIDI application running on the same CPU, with no additional hardware required. Functionality is accomplished within one window containing multiple drum pads. Samples are assigned to pads by dragging a sample from the hard disk to the pad. Clicking a pad displays its individual control parameters for pitch, volume, filter, pan, velocity, envelope, mute group and two effects processors. Up to four samples can be layered on a pad for switching with velocity or other controllers. It sells for $199.
Version 1.2 is in final beta now and should start shipping by May 5, according to the company. For more information, visit http://www.bitheadz.com.
