Propellerhead has released ReBirth 1.2 for the Apple iPad. Version 1.2 adds WIST (Wireless Sync-Start Technology developed by Korg). WIST uses a Bluetooth signal to simultaneously start two compatible iPad or iPhone apps. The free update to current owners is available now from the iTunes AppStore.
ReBirth 1.2 users can perform with a friend or expand their iPad/iPhone ensemble by using two units at once, expanding the ways they can create and perform music on their mobile devices. Mix and match ReBirth with TableTop, iMS20, iElectribe and other compatible apps in new dynamic ways.
Korg’s WIST allows for wireless sync-start between compatible apps on nearby iPads and iPhones. You can now sync with your friend’s device to create a dynamic live performance using two WIST-compatible apps.
By enabling WIST on one device to connect to another via Bluetooth, the initial iPhone or iPad will be treated as a Master for start-sync and tempo. The 2nd device will Slave to the Master settings. You’ll be synchronized and ready to jam!
