Lofionic Duplicat Icon

Lofionic Duplicat is a warm and lush tape delay effect for iOS, supporting AudioUnit Extensions, Inter-App Audio and Audiobus.

In addition to the Swell and Sustain controls found on the hardware equivalents, Duplicat introduces a tape Speed control, for fine tuning the rate of delay in realtime, and a tape Effect control which emulates the deteriorating effect of using worn tape by gradually introducing degradation to the feedback.

Duplicat is perfect for adding lush, organic sounding delay to your mixes ranging from trashy lo-fi grungy tones, through psychadelic swirls, to subtle slap-back.

Electro Harmonix Mini Synthesizer App For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

EHX Mini Synthesizer

Electro-Harmonix, a pioneer since 1968 in the field of sound effects pedals for musicians, has produced an app which is a faithful digital re-creation of their circa 1980 analog cult-classic, The MINI-SYNTHESIZER.

Available for iPad and iPhone (IOS version 8.0 or later), the EHX MINI-SYNTHESIZER accurately delivers all the vintage synth sounds of the original plus modern updates.

EHX President and Founder, Mike Matthews stated: “Fans of vintage synths will appreciate the apps ability to recreate the original’s warm analog sounds and deep funky bass, but because it’s so affordable ($2.99 for phone, $4.99 for tablet) and user-friendly, parents, educators and non-musicians will love it, too.”

The MINI-SYNTHESIZER app comes with 22 presets and the ability to store an almost unlimited number of user presets programs.

Electro Harmonix Mini-Synthesizer App

Intuitive, flexible and powerful control are provided by the MINI-SYNTHESIZER’s 12 sliders and nine switches. Here’s a breakdown of the user interface:

OSC Section
– PITCH slider lets the player raise or lower the pitch of the note by +/- 1 octave
– SUB-OCTAVE slider introduces a note one octave below what’s being played for extra bottom
– OCTAVE UP switch causes the note being played to jump up one octave.
– TUNE knob lets the player tune the MINI-SYNTHESIZER to other instruments and sound sources over a +/- 50 cents range.

FILTERS Section
– PHASE RATE slider adjusts the speed of the phase shifter
– FILTER START sets the start frequency of the filter sweep
– FILTER STOP sets the stop frequency of the filter sweep
– SWEEP RATE controls the speed of the filter sweep
– PHASE switch turns the effect on/off
– 2X FILTER switch changes how the audio passes through the filters (either in parallel or in series)
– Q switch sets the amount of resonance on the filter sweep
– RETRIGGER switch turns the filter retrigger on/off

DELAY Section
– TIME slider adjusts the delay time up to two seconds
– FEEDBACK controls the number of echo repeats
– BLEND adjusts the mix of the original signal and the echo repeats
– DELAY switch turns the effect on/off

REVERB Section
– AMOUNT slider adjusts the reverb effect level
– BLEND slider controls the mix of the wet and dry signals
– REVERB switch turns reverb on/off
– REVERB>DELAY switch lets the user place either Delay or Reverb first in the effects chain for a variety of cool sound effects.

MISCELLANEOUS CONTROLS
– VOL (Volume) slider adjusts the MINI-SYNTHESIZER’s overall sound output level
– POLY/MONO switch toggles between polyphonic (four notes can be played simultaneously) or monophonic (only one note can be played at a time) modes
– PRESETS pop-down menu displays the presets available and allows the user to instantly select one
– HORIZONTAL slider lets the player adjust the keyboards sounding range over an expansive eight-octave range.
– RIBBON Interface lets the player perform portamento (glide up or down to pitch), vibrato and other expressive playing.

The easy-to-use Electro-Harmonix MINI-SYNTHESIZER App is loaded with great sounds and features and is sure to appeal to serious musicians and non-musicians alike.

BASSALICIOUS Moog-like AU Monosynth For Funk
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

BASSalicious Audio Unit Funk Bass Synth

BASSalicious is a dedicated monophonic synth bass plugin with a single focus on sound. All of the synthesis and filters are custom tweaked with our own personality and our urban ear. When we first set out to produce BASSalicious, it came from a need we had. All of our plugins come from a musical need first. We noticed that there were a ton of synth bass libraries out there that focused solely on dubstep and wobble bass sounds, but not that much out there for the urban community and that pure synth bass classic sound. Sure there are the sample based ones, but you run into problems with samples when trying to produce a realistic glide effect that is so essential to urban synth bass music. The other thing we were dissatisfied with were the oscillators themselves. You see, in order to reduce aliasing, most wavetable synths reduce the bandwidth and filter out frequencies so it doesn’t alias. The problem with this is that you filter out the good stuff along with it. We figured out a unique compromise, where we can give you the full band of the wavetable, while at the same time reducing aliasing. Our method is very unorthodox, but it works, because the technology will always take a back seat to the sound, and not the other way around: “If it sounds good, then it is good.”

Dedicated monophonic synth bass synthesizer featuring the NEW iOS AudioUnit Version 3 plugin architecture.

– 21 VA Wavetable Waveforms with PWM
– 4 Oscillators
– AMP with 4 Modulators
– Circuit Modeled Filter Section with Velocity
– LFO with Aftertouch

Furthermore, we used an analog modeled filter that was approximated using real circuit designs. The complete topology was modeled with all of the aspects of the electronic components involved, and then converted over to source code. The result is a very organic sounding synth bass plugin, which has no hint of that cold digital wavetable sound. This is what we mean when we say it has an “organic sound.” This is what you hear in urban music. Each key piece has it’s own sound, color, and character to it. It’s not trying to be something else. It’s it’s own individual and we achieved this with BASSalicious. Remember the first time you heard Neo-Soul Keys® and your ears were suddenly opened to the sound you always wished you had, but could never achieve.

IAP:
The first oscillator is free. You will have access to all of the synth functions. After you purchase, you will get access to the other 3 oscillators as well as the 63 high quality custom synth bass presets.

AudioUnit Plugin:
As an added bonus, we have adopted the new AudioUnit standard, so now you can seamlessly use BASSalicious inside of your favorite iOS DAW as if it was apart of the sequencer. Presets that you make in the app and/or the plugin will be shared automatically.

The recommended iPad devices are the iPad 4th generation and higher, with the exception of the iPad 3.
