App Store Description

Skaka is a sample-based sequencer plug-in for shaken percussion instruments. What’s unique with Skaka is that its audio engine and sequencer handles samples with a defined musical start which makes it possible to set the intended timing of each shake in a natural way resulting in very lifelike rhythms.
The sequencer and sample player engine are built from the ground up to facilitate the needed parameters and features for a lifelike percussive sound. Each event added to any of the 12 independent sequencers can control multiple parameters such as pitch, velocity (as in how fast the instrument is shaken) and envelope. It can also be synchronized to the tempo and playhead position of a host application.
With full control over shuffle/swing amount, a complex humanizer settings panel, internal awareness of in and out shakes (yes, they sound different), using grids divided into triplets/quintuplets/septuplets, time fine-tuning and variable sequence lengths, Skaka can get very close to how a human percussionist would sound in almost any tempo without any use of degrading time stretching or similar techniques.
In addition to the 12 sequencers and their internal parameters, there is a reverb, a room simulator, and a high shelf filter.
Skaka comes with nearly 200 preset patterns covering most genres and styles.


USAGE

The main view shows 12 slots containing a sequencer and its parameters. These sequencers are started and stopped by MIDI Note On and Note Off (one for each MIDI note from C to B).
To reveal and edit a sequencer’s events and parameters, tap the sequencer overview (in the middle of each slot).
