Cinemax has announced that Rytmik Ultimate, it’s tool for chiptunes and old-school gaming music creation, will be released for Nintendo 3DS, Apple iPad, and Windows PC for $17.99 on December 10th.
Rytmik Ultimate is a tool that claims to be a “powerful pocket music station allowing you not only to play with samples and musical instruments but also to mix them together, shape them and create music clips or tracks for your Friday night set-list.”
Rytmik Ultimate will allow you to share your songs with other users through the “Rytmik Cloud”. Rytmik can serve as a music player of songs uploaded on “Rytmik Cloud.” With it, and on top of that, users may exchange their songs and cooperate on their composing. Another new feature, which is also the most desired one among fans, is exporting and saving music to a local storage. Once your work is complete, you can save it in WAV format.
Another new feature, since the last game in the series, is the ability to export and save music to local storage. Once your work is complete, you can save it in WAV format. This was one of the most requested additions by fans, according to the developer. Also, every instrument is now a wavetable synthesizer. With the advanced effect module, you have more power to shape sounds with the ADSR envelope, vibrato, portamento, noise shaper or digital delay. In addition to that, the drawable waveform synth module allows a user to draw and modify their own wave. Thus, giving players the ability to use it as a sample oscillator – with that you can use Rytmik Ultimate as a sonically unique chiptune synthesizer.
Rytmik Ultimate will come with a library of more than 750 instruments. It contains the libraries of the previous Rytmik series and adds a brand new set of samples ranging from deep dubstep kicks, basses to cutting synth leads, and special effects.
To sum it up these are the features the tool will be offering:
- Share your songs via Rytmik Cloud
- Export your music in the WAV format
- More than 750 musical instruments
- A drawable waveform synth module
- Advanced effects like the ADSR Envelope, Digital Delay, Noise Shaper, Sample Offset and Loop Definition and more
- Almost every effect parameter can be modulated via the step sequencer
