Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ will be released in Europe and Australia on August 15th!

July 25th, 2013

We are pleased to announce that the European version of Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ has passed all Nintendo testing and is due to be released in those territories on August 15th. That includes the UK, all of Europe, and Australia!

We are very excited to finally release in Europe and Australia! We can’t wait to hear what kind of music you can make!

Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ will be available as a download for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DSi game systems in the Nintendo eShop or Nintendo DSiWare store. The price in Europe will be 10 euros, or 1000 Nintendo Points.

Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ is the most full-featured music sequencer / solo instrument available for Nintendo game platforms, designed for creating and playing music live. It includes a traditional drum grid and piano-roll style sequencer, a solo mode with 10 different variations for playing instruments live, a drum screen for playing drums, a mixer screen for controlling levels, and a pattern mode for arranging loops and chord changes to form complete songs.

It contains many synthesis capabilities like ADSR envelopes for volume and pitch, a powerful vibrato/arpeggio feature, and per-track echo.

The buttons can be redefined to change the key and scale of your sequences, and/or jump to different loops or different sections of the pattern (song), a feature that is unique among music software programs on any platform.

There is a full set of editing features for copying notes and beats that is not available in any other Nintendo music tool.

For these reasons, we believe that Rhythm Core Alpha 2™ is the most powerful music program on any game platform, and the most compelling program for the creation of live music.

New demo song: Babydoll!

July 19th, 2013

In preparation for tomorrow’s show, I’ve entered a “new” demo song, a version of my first hit “Babydoll”. I’ve been told it sounds a little like a folk version of Morrissey put in a blender on “Puree”. It runs along at a nice 224 BPM, so it goes by pretty quick. I might remix it a bit later, but it is here for you to enjoy today!
