Babya Logic:
A 8-track MIDI sequencer
Draw Mode
This mode allows you to place and erase notes. To place a note, move
the cursor
to where you'd like the note to start and press and hold the left
mouse button.
Then drag the cursor to the right to the desired note length (each
column represents
1/16 note). Once you release the mouse button the note will be placed.
To erase
a note, move the cursor to the column where your note is and click the
mouse button. To see what instrument a note is, move the cursor to the
where the note is. The instrument number and name will be displayed
above the
music area on the left side.

Start / Insert Position Mode

Clicking on the music area in this mode places the red column. This
what part the song will start playing from when you press the play
button. Also
this is the position where notes will be added or erased when you use
the Paste
and Insert Space functions. You can also place the red column by
clicking on
the black bar above the music area while in any mode.

Select Area Mode

This mode allows you to isolate a specific area for editing. The
selected area
will be highlighted in blue. Click with the left mouse button and drag
to the
right to select an area. After an area is selected you can extend it by
to the right of the selected area. If you click to the left of the
area, you will deselect the previously selected area and start a new
Clicking anywhere in the music area with the right button while in this
will deselect everything.

Copy Selection

If there is an area currently selected (highlighted in blue), this
function will
copy that area into memory.

Cut Selection

This will cut out the selected area and copy it into memory.

Paste (Overwrite)

This function will paste from memory to the music area starting at the
red column's
position and overwrite the notes that were there previously.

Paste (Insert)

This will insert a space the size of the area to be pasted before
pasting it
and will not overwrite any notes.

Insert Space

You can insert one blank column at the red column's position with
this button.

Return to Start

This returns the red column and the screen's position to the
beginning of the


This plays the song starting from the red column. The song
automatically stops
when it reaches the last note.


Click this button to stop the song while it is playing.


This sets the tempo, or beats per minute, that the song is played at.
For example,
the default of 120 plays 120 quarter notes per minute, or 2 quarter
notes per
second. The range for Tempo is 20-300.


Select from 128 melodic instruments (0-127) and 47 percussive
instruments (128-174).
Selecting an instrument will change the current instrument for the
selected track. Next time a note is placed it will be in the newly
chosen instrument.
If there is a selected area (blue highlight), all notes in that area on
current track will be changed to the new instrument. Percussive
(128 - 174) do not change tone so it doesn't matter what row you
place them

Edit Track

Use these buttons to select which track you want to edit. You can only
notes on one track at a time. The notes of the currently selected track
be in front of all other notes and appear darker. All other tracks will
be dimmed.
You cannot edit a track that is hidden.

Hide Tracks

Use these buttons to hide up to seven tracks. When a track is hidden it
not be visible on the screen and cannot be altered in any way. This is
if you, for example, want to copy the baseline of a song but not the
You can temporarily hide all tracks but the baseline, copy and paste
it, then
unhide all tracks. You cannot hide the track that is currently selected


If you'd like your song to be in a higher or lower key, use the
Transpose function.
Clicking once will raise or lower every note one semitone. If you have
an area
selected in blue only those notes will be affected.

Use Alpha Blending

When this option is selected the red, blue and green highlighting bars
will be
semi-transparent rather than a crisscrossing pattern. This takes more
time and also may not work on some computers.

Reverse Notes

This reverses the song so that it is backwards compared to the
original. If an
area is selected in blue, only that part will be reversed.

Flip Notes

This basically flips your song upside down. The notes are still the
same distance
apart from each other vertically so they harmonize with each other, but
high notes are now low and the low notes are high. If an area is
selected in
blue, only those notes will be flipped.

BASS powered effects and applications

New effects provide a new vista in audio:
Using BASS, Babya Logic becomes even more powerful.

All-new effects and plugins include a cool spectrum display-and a live
version too, ASIO effects players with DSP and new export and recording
options like saving MP3 music to WAV and easy audio recording.

EAX and 3D effects make previewing a whole lot more sonic in Babya
Logic. Babya bRadio is included-with preset internet radio options that
will excite and entertain all of the family.

Have a 5.1 speaker system-now with Babya Logic 2's speaker tester, you
can test your speaker system with ease.

Even VST support is possible, as all the source code will be included
with the new plugin pack.

You can save local copies of the streams (for personal use as long as
you don't share it with others), unlike with iTunes.

Other new and enhanced features in Logic 2 include:
Babya Logic 2 comes with a fast audio extracter called Babya CD Audio
Studio that is designed to work in conjuction with Babya WaveBurner.

Like with Babya Logic 1.4, Babya Logic 2 bundles Babya iGrab-the easy
way to grab iPod music, without having to manually do it. This utility
will let you rip either a single song, or the entire music collection
of the iPod.

This utility will not hurt your iPod in anyway, nor modify its database
files or music.

Babya iGrab has some limits also: it can only read MP3 encoded music,
all other music will not be shown on the list ( eg. music purchased
from the iTunes Music Store. It can only grab either one song, or the
entire collection, not inbetween.

Babya iGrab will work with most iPods-including the latest fifth
generation iPod and iPod nano.

Babya Software Group's product manager for digital media, Alvin Novick
said about iGrab,"Babya iGrab is a fast and fuss-free application for
easily managing your music on a iPod."

Babya Software Group's A.A. Fussy noted about iGrab as well, "Babya
iGrab is a innovative application, allowing Apple iPod users to
effectively and efficiently copy music stored from their iPod onto a
computer for archival or playback purposes."

Babya Logic 2's improved feature set lets you be more tuneful:
Babya Logic 2 also features improved MIDI composition options in Babya
Logic Audio and 2 new and impressive looking audio spectrum viewers, a
realtime audio recorder and for the first time, ASIO effects.

Now produce iPod movies with Babya Logic:
Completely new to Babya Logic, Babya QuickTime Studio is a powerful
application which demonstrates how to use QuickTime 7's COM Control to
display and manipulate movies, using a familiar Apple QuickTime movie

To run Babya QuickTime Studio, your system must meet the minimum
requirements for QuickTime.
A Broadband Internet connection (DSL/Cable/LAN) is higly recommended as
If you don't have QuickTime already or you need to update it, download
QuickTime+iTunes bundle from: a
standalone setup file, ideal for network or for installing on a system
with a slow web speed (eg 56k).

This will install Apple's iTunes software which enables you to sync
exported videos from Babya QuickTime Studio to a fith-generation iPod.

Note for Mac users-you can run Babya QuickTime Studio on a Mac with a
Intel Core CPU with Boot Camp.

Babya QuickTime Studio has the following capabilities:
Standard QuickTime 7 features available in Babya QuickTime Studio are:
- Movie playback with a movie controller container
- Open, Open from URL, Close
- Cut/Copy/Paste/Undo
- Display movie info. such as duration, track types, track formats,

QuickTime 7 Pro features you can use in Babya QuickTime Studio are:
-Full Screen mode
- Export, Export with dialog
- Quicktime Event handling
- Fullscreen playback

Once you have a movie opened you can perform any of the various
operations on the movie using the File and Export menus such as export
to iPod , fullscreen etc.

Some of the operations utilize features or technologies that are
usually found only in the QuickTime 7 Pro edition-like full-screen. Now
Babya QuickTime Studio you can do this for free.

BASS enables the next-generation of previewing and generation of
high-quality audio in Babya Logic-some of the features of BASS include:

Powerful and efficient (yet easy to use)-you can sample & stream (MP3,
MP2, MP1, OGG, WAV, AIFF, custom generated, and more via add-ons), MOD
music (XM, IT, S3M, MOD, MTM, UMX), MO3 music (MP3/OGG compressed MODs)
music, & recording functions. All in a tiny DLL, under 100KB* in size.

On Windows, BASS requires DirectX 3 or above for output, and takes
advantage of DirectSound and DirectSound3D hardware accelerated
drivers, when available. On OSX, BASS uses CoreAudio for output, and
OSX 10.3 or above is recommended. Both PowerPC and Intel Macs are

New Mac synth-EVS1:
Babya EVS1 is a new synth from Emagic (part of Babya). EVS1 will be
available next month for both PPC & Intel Macs only.

EVS1 is the first Emagic branded synth from Babya's Emagic division.

Babya EVS1 i is intended to combine speech with music to produce the
classic Vocoder sound used by many artists including Kraftwerk and ELO.

The On-screen Parameters

Modulator File
The path to a sound file that contains the modulator waveform. This
would usually contain
a voice. Selectable with the Browse button.

Carrier File
The path to a sound file that contains the carrirer waveform. This
would usually contain music.
Selectable with the Browse button.

Output File
The path to a sound file that contains the output waveform. This file
will be created if it does not
already exist.

Window Length
The number of samples which will be analysed at a time.

Window Overlap
The number of samples that the windows will be overlapped as a
percentage of the window

Band Count
The number of frequency bands that the carrier will be modulated with.

Output Volume
The volume that the output will be scaled by.

Whether to normalise the output with respect to the carrier.


This channel vocoder works by analyzing the frequencies in the
modulator, splitting them into bands, finding the magnitude of each
band, and then amplifying the corresponding bands of the carrier by
that magnitude.

The modulator should simply be speech. It works best of you speak
very clearly and more slowly than usual.

The carrier should be some kind of frequency rich waveform. White
noise works well. Periodic white noise (i.e. a very short sample of
white noise) gives a "robot-like" sound. Another one that sounds good
is a synthesized string chord. This waveform will automatically be
looped. You can get interesting results by having the waveform change
over time.

Since what you pronounce changes over time, it would be pointless to
analyze the entire modulator waveform and excite those frequencies in
the carrier at once. Instead, the program splits the modulator into
"windows", which it processes one-at-a-time. The window-length
specifies how many samples are in each window. You will want at least
a few windows for every syllable. If this number is too large, the
output will be not be very understandable. If it is too small, you
will have other problems. Around 1/15th of a second (or the sampling
rate of the sound file divided by 15) tends to sound good, but
experiment to find the right value. To give you an example, anywhere
from 512 to 2048 is okay for a modulator with a sampling rate of 44.1
khz. If you half the sampling rate, you should half the
window-length, etc. The window-length must be a power of two due to
the technique that us used to analyze the frequencies.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the term "power of two," it
means a number that can be created by multiplying some number of two's
together. For example, the following numbers are the powers of two up
to 4096:

2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096

You get the next power of two by doubling the previous one.

Since the sound is processed in discrete windows, the output can
change very abruptly where it goes from one chunk to the next. This
is audible as a click. To remedy this, the program can have the
windows overlap and cross-fade between them. The window-overlap
specifies how many samples of overlap there are between windows.
1/8th of the window-length tends to be a good starting point, but
in many cases, one half of the window-length gives the best results.
This may not exceed half of the window-length.

In order to excite the frequencies in the carrier, the frequencies of
the modulator are split into bands. The larger your band-count, the
more the output will sound like the modulator. This number should
evenly divide the chunk-length for the best results. Somewhere
between 8 and 64 usually sounds best. The band-count may not exceed
half of the window-length.

If you find that the output is clipped (distorted) or is too quiet,
you can specify a value for the volume. Anything less than one will
reduce the volume, and anything greater than one will increase it.

While the defaults for the parameters generally produce decent
results, the best results will be achieved by changing their values.
The best way figure out all the numbers and what the best waveforms
are is to experiment. Have fun!
