Music Creation Software
Ignite includes over 275 instruments, many of which are taken from our renowned instrument collections - including Strike, Structure, and Velvet. All sounds have been optimized to load quickly, and the editing controls are automatically mapped to your Ignite supported keyboard. These extraordinary sounds include keyboards, drums, percussion, basses, guitars, synths, strings, brass, and woodwinds.
In addition to hundreds of onboard instruments and extensive MIDI control, Ignite supports two tracks of simultaneous audio recording, such as guitar and voice, a stereo workstation, bass and guitar, etc. Effects can be added to any audio track, and time stretching--powered by Radius from iZotope--is also provided.
Ignite features Smart MIDI technology to help jump-start your ideas and enhance your music-making skills. The Chord Player generates a chord pattern from a single key, while the Phrase Player can provide a single-voice line to add to your composition. Both the Chord and Phrase player include dozens of patterns in modern music genres - these aren't canned, boring MIDI patterns. Tailor the performance of these Players by adjusting feel, speed and intensity. The Flexible arpeggiator plays held notes individually, either as a musical flourish or in a rhythmic pattern.
Ignite features instant Integration with Select Alesis, AKAI Professional, and M-Audio Keyboards: simply connect any Ignite supported keyboard or controller to your computer, and Ignite provides seamless integration. The keyboard is automatically detected and controls are automatically mapped when connected to your computer. Swapping keyboards? The controls are automatically updated and mapped. Open the SPECS tab for an up-to-date list of Ignite supported keyboards.
Share your latest creation with friends, fans, and family - or collaborate with other musicians - by taking advantage of direct uploads to SoundCloud. Plus, you can export your individual audio (WAV) and MIDI files, which can then be imported into any computer-based recording software - including Pro Tools.
New in Ignite Version 1.4.1:
- MIDI Learn Mode maps Ignite 1.4.1 to your favorite keyboard controller
- Numerous optimizations
- Capture your ideas quickly and make music - without getting bogged down with technical jargon and complicated steps.
- Record vocals, guitar or any audio input source. Ignite supports stereo audio recording and playback using ASIO, Core Audio and WASAPI audio interfaces.
- Individual musical ideas are captured as phrases and are placed in the Arranger. The Arranger is an organic "stage" where you can organize your music ideas and phrases in whatever way make sense to you.
- Clips can be any length, and don't have to be aligned into a pre-determined structure (such as tracks and lanes). Multiple Clips can be played back together, or even grouped to create more complex phrases and song sections.
- Clips and Multi-Clips can be quickly duplicated in the Arranger using a few simple commands, making it easier to experiment and audition new ideas.
Instant Integration with Ignite-Supported Keyboards
- Ignite will instantly recognize any Ignite-supported keyboard controller from Alesis, AKAI Professional, or M-Audio once it is connected to your computer.
- Key parameters will be automatically assigned, or mapped, to the front panel controllers. The on-screen image labels the controllers with their current parameters, providing visual reminders.
