Described as a “complete self-contained Looping, Sampling and Sound design software”, Cantor is a versatile tool designed to be usable for musicians who “don’t like computers”.
The software packs an epic amount of features for musicians to use across their practice, producing, jamming and performing sessions. To start, Cantor features 32 easy to use effects that you can combine across eight effect processors for some serious sonic exploration. All synchronisation and quantization options are defined as fractions for you to generate Polyrhythms.
The program also allows you to make music across eight stereo looping tracks. There’s a quick sampler that grabs incoming sound and maps it to your keyboard, and loop sizes can run anywhere from samples to minutes. Cantor also boasts a growing collection of in-house synths, as well as VST/AU plugin support for you to connect third-party instruments.
As for recording, simply press on a single button to record the entire session. Multitrack recording is available as well, and all loops can instantly be bounced down.
Cantor is currently available for Mac-OS only, though a Windows build is in the works.
And the best part? The app is completely free and financed entirely by donations.
