Optigan for iOS iPhone and iPad

This is the Optigan for iOS. The Optigan, short for Optical Organ, was a chord organ from the early 1970’s. It is remembered today for its unique system of sound reproduction using optical discs. These LP-sized film discs were optically encoded with 57 concentric tracks, which contained loops of musical combos playing chord patterns in different styles. Each disc contained a specific style of music (Bossa Nova, Big Band etc) which the user could control by pressing the chord buttons. Changing the discs was as simple as putting a new record on your turntable. Think of it as the 1971 version of GarageBand.

Despite this novel technology, the scratchy sound of the Optigan left a lot to be desired.

The iOptigan we present here truthfully recreates that lo-fi sound.

25 of the original 40 discs are included, the remaining 15 can be purchased individually or all together in the Complete Pak.

Specifications and Features:
• Disc loading rigth-side-up or upside-down
• Spring Reverb (virtual)
• Optical Metronome
• Audio Demo for each Disc
• MIDI in/out
• MIDI chord detection
• MIDI File Import
• Sequencer with Record and Playback
• Sharing for songs as Audio and MIDI File
• iTunes File Sharing
• Inter-App Audio
• Smart background audio

How To Sample With an iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Hello everyone! Dj Puzzle here as your guide and today I’d like to show you the basics of sampling with an iPad. This video is for those just starting out, those with very little knowledge of sampling on an iPad. I decided to use Beatmaker 3 because it’s one of the best sample sequencers for iOS in my opinion. We won’t dive deep into advanced sampling in this video perhaps I’ll publishing another one for that. I thought it would be fun to sample from a vinyl record for this one! This Polish jazz record from my collection was perfect because it has lots of isolated samples. I could have went on for a lot time grabbing sounds and playing with them but I wanted to keep the video under 25 mins. Perhaps there will be a part 2 in the near future. Let me know! I have a Patreon account and wanted to thank my patrons. I hope you find this video useful and thanks for the support!! 1900 subscribers so far whoo hoo!!

Elastic Drums More MIDI Control
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Elastic Drums is a music app showcasing an interactive drum kit, that enables to create a huge range of rhythmic grids, ranging from classical analog drumkits up to experimental soundscapes. It contains six channels of high quality synthesized drum sounds, a step sequencer and 4 effect channels. All important control parameters are automatable. The result: Elastic drum composition with a unique character.

What’s New Aug 11, 2018 Version 2.2

– Improvement: Micro Recording for Sample Player got improved, showing input level, etc.
– New (Midi): Mic record button can now be triggered via Midi and will show sample view
– New (Midi): Autom & velocity buttons can now be triggered via Midi
– New (Midi): Program Change via IAA should work now also
– Improvement: „Record audio“ will not overwrite existing audio files anymore, but create new ones with a date ending
– Improvement (Jam screen): Midi notes will always trigger an instrument, even with „trig“ > 0 and stopped sequencer

Features:
– 6 synth channels with 13 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone, sampler)
– 12 parameters for each synth engine
– automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
– 4 send effect channels with 2×13 mono effects and 2×11 stereo effects
– automation for all of the 8 possible effect parameters via xy pad
– master effects (stutter, delay, compressor …)
– 16 step sequencer for the 6 channels, each with it’s own tempo multiplier & length
– record audio and export to Soundcloud or Audioshare
– email audio recordings and presets
– Audiobus, Audiobus Remote, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Link support
– Midi learn/Midi implementation of the most important parameters

Because all sounds get generated in realtime, the app is cpu heavy! iPhones 5 and greater can handle it with no problem, on iPhone 4s effects 3 and 4 get switched off by the engine automatically to save some cpu power. iPhone 4 and iPad1 are NOT recommended!

Elastic Drums is published by MoMinstruments, the instruments app label of Mouse on Mars and friends.

Formante Formant Filter AUv3
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Formante is an AudioUnit AU3 compatible vocal filter plugin. You can simulate the formants and the vowels of a human voice, creating rich and mellow sounds; it can be applied to synthesizes, drums, guitars or any sound you want. Its parameters can be controlled by hosts or automated with the integrated drawable envelope (you can choose 16/32/64 steps resolution) and a BPM tempo control. Its filter engine has been already acclaimed in the vocal section of EGSY01 analogue synth, and we decided to publish it as a standalone filter due to users request.

PLEASE NOTE:
this is not a standalone app, but you need an AU3 compatible host like n-Track, AUM, Auria, Cubasis or Beatmaker3
