RETRONYMS CREATES A UNIVERSE OF MUSIC EXPLORATION WITH THE RELEASE OF LOOPERVERSE

San Francisco, CA USA (March 31, 2017) – Retronyms, pioneers of pro music production, performance, and expression on multitouch platforms, have released Looperverse today. Looperverse is the ultimate loop recording/performance system for iOS. It’s the result of a multi year collaboration between Retronyms and Cycling ’74, creators of MAX/MSP. The Looperverse product lineup includes a wireless stomp pedal and an app for iPhone and iPad. more…

Looperverse merges the classic pedal-based live looping workflow — utilized by Ed Sheeran, DubFX, DJ Quest, and more — with powerful multitouch editing features. Including an array of advanced tools, Looperverse makes recording, editing, and customizing loops simple. Continuously record up to 16 tracks worth of content, and immediately edit them. The 16 track loop recorder includes sound-on-sound, overwrite, and next track modes. Musicians can adjust track sends to the built-in delay and reverb effects, as well as adjusting pan, gain, mute, and solo in the mixer. Looperverse features advanced waveform editing, pitch shifting, time stretching, live reverse, extensive undo/redo, and time signature support. These features allow musicians to limitlessly modify their scenes and explore phrases and riffs.

The Looperverse app connects your music to the iOS music ecosystem. Inter App Audio and AudioBus support ensures that you can record any virtual instrument. Looperverse also supports Ableton Link, allowing musicians to lock tempo with Ableton Live or apps on other devices. AudioCopy support allows musicians to quickly publish music on SoundCloud, copy and paste from hundreds of compatible apps, and choose from millions of loops and sounds available in the Content Store.

The app is integrated and enhanced with the Looperverse pedal, which provides 6 premium quality switches pre-mapped to undo, redo, clear, tap tempo, record, and playback. Each setting is fully customizable, so users can remap to their liking. It can be controlled from users’ iOS devices and will work as a standalone pedal with any device that supports MIDI. Because the Looperverse pedal supports the Bluetooth (BTLE) MIDI standard, it’s compatible with virtually any software on any device.

Virsyn BandShift Frequency Shifter App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

BandShift is a multi-band auditory filter and frequency shifter taking a new approach to manipulate the pitch of complex sound sources in realtime. The well know analog Bode frequency shifter shifts all frequencies in an input up by the same amount and thereby alters their harmonic relation and tends to produce inharmonic results. But it’s perfect in dealing with transients and sounds smooth even with high amounts of down pitching.

BandShift splits the spectrum in 27 bands and applies a different amount of frequency shifting to each band emulating a harmonic pitch shifting. This gives you perfect pitch shifting for all kind of drum sounds over a vast shifting range of +/- five octaves without disturbing the transients or introducing metallic distortions. The extreme range of shifting gives you access to a vast field of unknown sonic territory.

The possibility to apply different shiftings on each band gives you exciting possibilities: Suppose you have a drum loop which is perfect, but the bass drum is a bit too high or too low to fit in your mix then you can easily get the bass drum shifted a bit down and the rest of the spectrum remains unchanged. But it’s applications are not limited to drum sounds, they’re only limited by your imagination.

Features:

• Multi band bode frequency shifter
• Linear phase filter bank with 27 bands
• AudioUnit for AUv3 compatible hosts.
• Inter-app audio compatible effect.
• Audiobus 2 compatible with state saving.
• Apply effect to any song in your iTunes library.
• MIDI Learn for X/Y Pads
• Low latency live usage with mic and headphones.
• Audio recorder
