Oriental Strings For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Oriental-Strings-iPad

Oriental Strings is a professional sound module app for oriental keyboard players and for musicians who simply want to resemble the typical sound of the Middle East in their songs. Connect an external MIDI keyboard to your iPad by using the Apple USB camera adapter or another adapter supported by Apple, or launch Oriental Strings as virtual instrument directly within your favourite DAW app on your iPad!¹

This app supports Apple’s “Inter-App Audio” System (requires iOS 7 or higher) and the “JACK Audio Connection Kit” (up to iOS 6.1.3) for audio & MIDI connections from/to other audio apps!

The sounds of Oriental Strings were exclusively recorded with players who are professionally dedicated to oriental style of music. Typical string instrument sounds for the arabic genre are covered by this app. Besides rather exotic instruments like the Chinese erhu, typical western string instruments were used as well, but since the players of the recording sessions are focused on oriental music, those western instruments sound completely different than you might be used to from western orchestra players.

32 Sounds are included with this App:
– Chinese Erhu 1 – 3
– Chinese Erhu Trill
– Turkish Strings 1 – 4
– Arabian Strings 1 – 3
– Tremolo Strings 1 – 5
– Spiccato Strings
– Oriental Spiccato Strings
– Oriental String Quartet 1 – 3
– Oriental Staccato Strings
– Arabian Solo Strings 1 – 3
– String Quartet
– Oriental String Ensemble 1 – 5
– Slow Oriental Strings

There is no in-app purchase in this app. So all sounds and all app features are immediately available to you as one buy.

General Features:
– Scale tuning editor, which allows you to adjust the standard well-tempered scale to all kinds of oriental scales (save and restore them as presets at any time).
– Low latency disk streaming.
– Polyphony up to 140 stereo voices.²
– Configurable audio latency down to 5 ms.
– Integrated effects with 18 presets.

– MIDI velocity response curve editor to fine tune the feeling of your MIDI keyboard.

– Supports Apple’s “IAA” system for audio & MIDI streaming between other apps (iOS 7 or higher).
– Supports “JACK Audio Connection Kit” for audio & MIDI streaming between other apps (up to iOS 6.1.3).
– Virtual on-screen piano keyboard with velocity support, scalable & scrollable.

The touch controls means that I can actually PLAY the effects – say I’m playing a guitar solo, I’ll lean over and noodle with it and create some wacky guitar sounds. This app is just so creatively inspiring and fun to use.” – Adrian Belew.

Phase84 Phase Distortion Synthesizer For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Phase84 Phase Distortion Synth For iPad

Phase84 is a next generation phase distortion synthesizer. It fuses gritty digital sounds with traditional analog punch.

+++++
Phase84 is a Tabletop Ready App. Combine Phase84 with drum machines, sequencers, effects, and more inside Tabletop — a free modular music app for iPad.
+++++

Phase84 is an extremely capable synthesizer and features over 110 presets, containing all sorts of basses, leads, pads, bell tones, sweeps, atmospheric sounds, pseudo-realistic tones, and more. While you don’t need to know much about synthesizers to get a lot out of Phase84, experienced synth tweakers will be thrilled at the sheer variety of unique sounds that can be produced with this incredibly versatile synth.

So What’s Phase84 All About?

Phase84 is what’s known as a Phase Distortion synthesizer. This form of waveshaping synthesis has its roots in Casio’s brilliant CZ line of digital synthesizers from the 80s. It is designed to have the warmth of a subtractive (analog) synthesizer, yet be capable of the squelchy tones and sharp attacks of an FM synth. Phase84 in particular can create warm pads, glitchy sounds, dirty basses, filthy sweeps, screaming leads, and anything in-between.

For those familiar with the typical Moog-like (or iMini-like!) synthesis, think of the “shaper” as being synonymous with “brightness” or “filter cutoff”.

Features:
More than 100 presets.
MIDI support.
inter-App Audio support.
Advanced Keyboard section.
Expressive Perform Mode with Groove Gate.
Tabletop Ready App.
Precision Knob mode.
Phat, naturalistic unison feature for super thick pads and sweeps.
Oscillator Section: 9 Params, 2 General-Purpose Oscillators, 1 Formant Oscillator.
Mix Section: 8 Params including Delay Amount and Pulse Width.
Envelope Section: Amplitude and Shaper Envelopes. Fully visualized and interactive ADSR plus special Fade Param.
Delay/Filter Section: Stereo delay with loss modeling and a punchy overdriven analog-style filter.
3 LFOs: More flexible than your average LFO, this has 4 waveforms, optional delay and repeat count, and can go into the audible frequency range.

Phase84 is available for $12.99
