SquashIt Multi-band Distortion For iPad
Author Comments Off Tags Tags: , , ,

Squashit-Logo

“Squashit by Klevgränd Produktion is a lovely multi-band distortion effect for iPad. Squashit is very rich sounding AND it supports IAA. I would recommend this app to anyone looking to add a really fat and rich sounding distortion effect to their audio chain. It’s very crunchy and warm and yet very tame in regards to how perfect the distortion sounds. The UI is very responsive. No digital clipping either! Just a really solid sounding distortion. There is also a free audio unit plugin with the exact same algorithms and UI.” Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle) – iPadloops.com

This audio effect filter provides an unique distortion algorithm and should be essential in every music producers toolset. SquashIt doesn’t sound vintage, it just sounds good. SquashIt is developed by musicians for musicians.
Features:

• SquashIt! is Inter app audio (IAA) compatible. This means you can use it with Garageband or other IAA compatible sequencers.

• Load / Save presets.

• Remembers hosts (will automatically load last used settings when a host connects)

• Low cpu usage

• Simple but yet powerful user interface

Squashit is available for .99 cents.

Voxen Voice Synthesizer For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Voxen Voice Synth

Voxen, the synthesizer different

*** Special introductory 50% discount ***

Voxen is a voice synthesizer. It lets you synthesize singing voices.
Any voice, not just the few voices that someone else designed into it.
Plus voices that no vocalist can sing.
No pitch shifting. No time warping.
Just good ol’ pure synthesis.

Voxen is based on the voice synthesis technology used by speech scientists and psychoacousticians around the globe. Even though it can be great fun to play with, it is not a toy. Voxen is intended for musicians, DJs and producers who are looking for new and different sources of sounds.

It’s time to set your aural imagination free…

Voxen Screen

FEATURES

- Eight note polyphony
- Keyboard range of more than ten octaves
- Three X-Y touchpads
- Twenty-eight vertical linear knobs
- Choice of dark or light background colour
- Eight choices of foreground colour
- Save and load user-defined patches

TECHNICAL DETAILS

For those who are interested in the more technical details, Voxen is a polyphonic formant synthesizer. There are three banks of knobs which control, respectively, the voice, the voice envelope and the formants. The six voice knobs control provide a modified Klatt 1989 voicing source. The ten voice envelope knobs control master amplitude and ADSR envelope for the voicing source and for a separate aspiration source. The remaining twelve knobs control the centre frequencies and bandwidths of the first four formants and the centre values and differences (spread) for a nasal formant/antiformant pair.

Each of the three X-Y touchpads controls a pair of parameters, f1 & f2, b1 & b2 and vibrato rate & vibrato depth.

Spectral tilt (or voice brightness) is controlled by the height you are touching the keys.

The overall aim of the user interface is to make it simple to control the many parameters in a live setting. The colours are based on the Solarized theme by Ethan Schoonover.

And if none of that made sense to you, don’t worry. You do not need to understand any of it to make cool sounds with Voxen.

Voxen is available for $7.99
