Software Description

Tu2 is a phrase sampler which means it will make music and sound out of samples you feed it.


Tu2 will stack samples, loops and soundbites for you. You can slice 'n dice them, mutilate them, filter them, remix them, put effects over them and while you're at it you have the freedom to put your own personal sonic sauce over the outcome.

Additionally, it comes with:

  • a drumcomputer (Rage2)
  • an analog modeling synth (Amber)
  • a virtual sampler (Bliss2)
  • an FM synth (Halo)
  • an integrated sample editor
  • a drag 'n drop Variator
  • MP3 export

NEW: pattern monitoring added, Mute/Solo functions added. Lotsa fixes and optimizations

am I the only one who can't stop using Tuareg?

...it's been 5 years since i started using Tuareg FAT 1.5.
I don't think there's a music software that's so easy to use. I was disappointed with Tu2 so i never stopped using Tu 1.5. I've tried using other software like Fruity Loops and other programs but Tuareg is the one i keep using.

I love doing music with this program, Bram Bos is a genius. Yes, the program has a lot of bugs, but that doesn't stop you of creating killer sounds and great songs/remixes/anything.

Much respect from Chile. :)

i tried it once, I'll never let it go

I used to sampler with this software and it was OK, let me see if it's the sameo' shit, Viva México putos

???????

i downloaded tu2 and how do i open it or what web sight.tell me something

Tu2 version 2.2 Now Online

It's available here and on my site.
New features include a floating
sequencer etc. Some bugfixes, like
the very annoying file save-bug.

Cheers,

Bram

Tu2 keeps crashing...

Can anyone give advice on this. I can't even play any samples. I see the potential in Tu2, but if all it's gonna do is crash then I don't want it. I got several dozen other sampler programs that I've had for a couple of years and never had any problem with. I downloaded and tried 100's of programs over the past few months, this is the only one that messes up. I also notice that a couple other people in here are saying the same thing. What's the deal, is there a bug?

Tried the new vesion?

: What's the deal, is there a bug?

I had a bug too in the first version, but the
new update has fixed it for me. No more problems.
Also.. have you tried changing output drivers?

HTH!

bram really screwed us this time

i spent an hour working on something and saved it. When I returned to it, it only had the first 4 mesures saved.
So I figure, slight bug, no big deal,and continued to work on it for 3 more hours.
It didnt save a thing.
There is also a bug in the volume controls.I dont know if every copy has these bugs, but damned if i pay money for an access code thats meaningless.
Tuareg 1.5 is one of the best freeware progs I ever downloaded and i had high expectations for tuareg 2, which for a freeware version , was very disapointing.
Id like to know if anyone else is experiencing any of these problems so i know if I got a really messed up prog.

Re: (you) really screwed (yourself) this time

I have one thing to say in response to this 'screwed us' post.
That program that your using that is 'representing' the be-all end-all of what Tuareg can/will do ... is a FRIGGEN BETA YOU MORON!.... BETA...

ok i feel better now.

Re: bram really screwed us this time

You stupid little person, what an ignorant, slanderous and hurtful header....man the last thing Bram Bos would have on his mind is *screwing* you....

why don't you find out what you're mouthing off about before you set out to belittle
the FREE offerings from a 21st century legend,

not impressed

ricky

Re: bram really screwed us this time

I can't believe you seriously posted that pile of trash! How on earth did you 'get screwed'? Bram is an independant developer working out of his house in his spare time. The fact that *you* had a save bug on *your* system by no means that it is universal OR crap.

Have you tried sending a bug report to him with your system information (CPU speed, mobo, OS, ram amounts etc.)? Or was it just easier to come here and bitch? As far as I know Bram is one of the most responsive programmers out there to issues like this. Why don't you go somewhere and be constructive before just blowing off steam?

There is an entire mailinglist set aside for his programs and users of his programs. If you head over to Yahoogroups and look up the Tuareg list and join, you might learn a thing or two.

I for one, (assuming you have some useful input to bring instead of just whining) would be happy to see you over there. There is an incredible number of positive people there busy using Tu and other proggies (mostly Tu ;)) to make music. Come visit!

Re: bram really screwed us this time

Ignore this guy Bram... he's a complete ass. Taureg is the absolute best thing on my hard drive as well. I have used it for a number or professional releases and haven't had a single moment of regret purchasing the original over 2 years ago. As a matter of fact I recommend it to every friend I have that plays music.

Re: bram really (didn't) screw us this time

I have been using Tuareg for over a year (the full version), and I have never regretted spending the measily $35 for the program. In fact, I think Bram should charge more for his work, simply because it's one of the most useful programs sitting on my hard drive.

If you were ranting about the latest Microsoft release, I would probably agree with you wholeheartedly (although I shouldn't waste my time complaining when I could be making music). It is considered socially-acceptable to gripe about large corporations who should know better than to release faulty software. But we're talking about ONE PERSON, a rather young person at that, who is putting his whole being into making these innovative and unique applications. And as I said before, this particular application is one of the most useful on my PC.

Say you find another bug in the future. Instead of complaining to the world about it to satisfy your need to complain, why don't you let Bram know so he can fix it? He isn't Microsoft or Sun and probably can't afford a whole room full of software testers, and you would be adding to the development, not subtracting from it.

Although Bram designed the free version of Tu2 to be able to save your work (and 2.0 didn't for some reason), I am shocked and amazed that he actually has spent time fixing this bug. So many 'freeware' apps and demos will not let you save your work anyway.

So pay the $35 and use it. It might open your eyes once you discover how useful it really is, and you might find something better to do than post premature complaints on the net.

Lastly, I invite you to DL my latest song done in Tuareg. I'm no Alex Patterson, but the least I can do is back up my appreciation for Bram with a bit of my own music to prove the worth of Tu.

Cheers,
Bruce

How did I screw you?

So there was a minor bug in the first release.
Happens to 99% of the software on this planet.
I've fixed it. v2.1 is out. But man... you're
complaining about something I am giving away for
FREE! You sure are an example of how cheap-ass
the world has become.

Re: How did I screw you?

well, i didnt expect to get that many responses.
i didnt mean to insult you bram. I'm not some jerkoff who wanted to bitch about a bug because i had nothing better to do.I value every peice of music i create and when i lose something i made i get a little angry, surley you of all people could understand that.
you have my apologies, i guess i didnt see it your way.
I actually love tuareg.As a matter of fact, thats pretty much all i do with my spare time.Your program changed my life in a way, so i hope i didnt piss you off or anything.

Re: How did I screw you?

yeah bram, your such a big jerk spending countless hours working on an awsome app and then just giving it away for free... man i hate people like you..

Tuareg Must Have a Bug! Help!!!

I love this software, it is the bomb. I'm using the free version, learning how to use the program, before I get the registered versiom. But every time that I switch to Rage Or Bliss, My computer Crashes. I get a fatal error, then when I try to recover by pressing any key to get back to windows and the program, My video screen get's all fuzzy and ziz-zaggy. You can't even see clearly, or even operrate the program when this happens. If anyone has had the same problem or similar, please tell me what I can do to stop this crazy thing from happening. I love the program, but I have never been able to use the Rage or Bliss features. Please Help!

To know the training manual now

Hello dear,
I want to know the training manual for the entomology now.

Finally... Get paid for your MP3 downloads!!

I'm so sick of seeing bands and musicians having to give their music away!! No other trade is expected to do this. Our tools cost more than everyone else's!! A new Les Paul costs more than a new 1.5 gig desktop!! Yet WE are expected to just hand it all over. Do REEALLY think these Napster hearings are going to benefit the independant artists?! Not likely!! Well... After getting a "royalty check" for ninety-five cents, after having the top three downloads at a major MP3 site for three months, I'd finally had enough!! So I took up programming and hooked up with one of the world's top audio software programmers and we did something about it!!

We are proud to announce the release of PayWave. This incredible new software allows bands and musicians to demo their MP3 files for a limited number of plays. No one can pirate the tracks because the program disables their system's record function during playback. No on can play the track on another player, because the program converts the song into a non-audio file format that will only play on the embedded player until the song is paid for. To find out more and download a free demo, just go to www.tym2.com
You can also get a free multitracker just for checking it out!!
We'll be posting the software on the site later this week, but I wanted to start getting the message out. We can finally take control of our destiny!! This is an opportunity for ALL ONLINE MUSICIANS!!!!!!!! SPREAD THE WORD!!

Re: Finally... Get paid for your MP3 downloads!!

Great idea..The anti-piracy will keep MOST people out. But somebody can use an external recorder hooked up to the soundcard to pirate music... The PayWave will keep MOST people from pirating music but not all. I may try out the program being a musician myself. how do you send mp3s in ?

TELL ME HOW DO I JUST GET NORMAL BEATS ON THE TUREG.THEY HAVE THE WACKEST BEATS.DONT GET ME WRONG,THE MACHINE IS THE BEST,BUT HOW DO I GET THE KEYBOARD TO SOUND LIKE A NORMAL KEYBOARD? PLEASE TELL ME HOW.THANX

Re: CONFUSION

You have to import your own sounds and create your own beats with the Rage. As for Bliss, its just a step sequencer, you can't really get it to act like a normal keyboard. But you can put your own wav files into it.

bugger it

When I try to access menus while music is playing, they popup and dont do anything.Then my pc crashes.This has happened twice.Is it just me or is there a bug in the program?

Re: bugger it

: This has happened twice.Is it just me or is
: there a bug in the program?

I have made numerous tracks with it without
having problems. I am using 1.5, the Fat version.
No bugs found so far. Could it be a problem
with your sounddriver? A friend of mine solved
his problems by changing the pref-settings from
MME to Directsound. Hope that helps you!

Rob

Cant get it to make any sounds

I know this is supposed to be all easy and fast to use and i ve used alot more complex programs than this but for some reason this program aint happening for me. Any advice? please respond to email

Try this...

How about pressing the button called "PLAY"
and then just clicking around? You should
be hearing something then. But seriously...
are you assigning any sample to any channels?
That's the only thing you need to do to
start making sounds! Channels are the bright
green colored bars with the three dots in 'em.

Good luck!
