Expressive AudioGenerator AUv3
Author View comments Tags Tags: , ,

Indie audio app developer auDSPr has created auGEN X. You can think of auGEN X in two ways: first, it is a handy utility for making audio test sounds, and second, it is a performable creative sound design tool. On one end use auGEN X to help set up, test, calibrate, and optimize your audio system. On the other end use it to create a wide variety of interesting sounds. auGEN X has a full-featured audio oscillator, a high quality noise generator, and an impulse generator. The simple yet powerful user interface is designed for fast, precise, intuitive control over your signals. auGEN X works both as a Stand-Alone App and as an AUv3 Audio Unit Extension.

I started making this App because as an audio electronics engineer I could not find a single audio generator that does everything that I require AND is an AUv3 Audio Unit. It has developed into a cool tool for exploring sound design. Our goal is for auGEN X to be one of your Essentials in your audio toolbox. We hope you enjoy it and we’re excited to see and hear the cool things that you do with auGEN X.

Here’s a little preview of NanoStudio 2, coming to iPad very soon!

Pre order now! https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/nanostudio-2/id1112601015?mt=8

NanoStudio 2 is a powerful music production environment for recording, synthesis, sampling, arranging, editing and mixing. It’s the successor to the original NanoStudio, an app held in high regard by musicians for many years for its usability, quality and productivity.
With six years development behind it, NanoStudio 2 builds upon the same design principles that made its predecessor so popular and then takes a quantum leap with a massive range of extra features and a new audio engine delivering truly professional sound quality. Everything is optimized for CPU efficiency, so complex projects with many instruments and effects are handled with ease.

Scheduled for the 7th of December – the app will be available for pre-order sometime tomorrow

This is a complete in-the-box solution to production, enabling you to develop your initial musical ideas right through to a final master with an intuitive workflow carefully designed to get things done.

NanoStudio 2 is a fully featured host for external Audio Unit (AUv3) instruments and audio/MIDI effects. A library of all your AU instruments and presets is maintained so they’re in one place – tagged, searchable and just as accessible as NanoStudio’s own internal instruments.
For composing and arranging there are powerful fully featured editors for songs, MIDI parts, automation and samples. All editors share a clean and consistent user interface which means you’ll be up to speed with them in no time.

Main features:

• Fully fledged song editor with tempo and time signature tracks, arbitrary track grouping/nesting, track lanes and no limit on the number of tracks in the song
• MIDI and automation editors
• A sample editor capable of efficiently handling audio files up to 2 hours long
• A mixer which also supports track grouping and nesting, unlimited insert effects, configurable audio and MIDI sends and pro-style latency compensation
• 11 built-in quality effects including reverb, sidechain compressor/expander, EQ with spectrum analysis, look-ahead limiter, delay, exciter, chorus, flanger and phaser.
• AUv3 audio or MIDI effects can be used in effect chains, just like internal effects
• Mixdowns up to 32 bit/96kHz and export file formats including wav, aiff, ogg and M4A
• Support for mixing down track stems in a single operation and/or just a region of the song
• Ableton Link support
• Sharing with the iOS Files app, Dropbox, AudioShare, iTunes File Sharing, AirDrop, email, and song import from your iTunes music library
• Built-in WebDAV server for full control and backup of your files
• 8 In-app purchase sound packs including multisampled acoustic instruments

Obsidian (synth):

• 3 oscillator 16 note polyphonic synth with stereo voices
• Each oscillator can use 7 different types of synthesis: Analogue, Wavetable, Phase Distortion, FM, Multi-Saw, Shaped Noise or Multisampled Zones
• An innovative spectral loop mode for samples
• 18 filter types including resonant analogue, clean digital, comb and formant
• Modulation provided by 5 envelopes, 5 LFOs and 10 macro controllers
• Effects chain with a reverb, delay and chorus/flanger/phaser
• 300+ Factory patches

Slate (advanced drum sampler):

• 32 pads with 4 internal effects busses and a final master output bus with limiter
• Each pad can use up to 3 split or layered samples and has its own filter, waveshaper, envelopes and voice grouping options
• 500+ factory samples ranging from multisampled acoustic drums through to cutting-edge electronic percussion and effects, arranged into 50 kits

Plans for 2019:

• Support for iPhone and iPad Pro
• A super-efficient convolution reverb
• Linear audio tracks in the song editor

Sugar Bytes Aparillo for iPad

Aparillo (The Cinematic Machine) is an advanced 16 voice FM synth tailored for complex sound structures , majestic motions, moving and evolving soundscapes and atmospheres that are perfect for film, TV or games.

It‘s not limited to the conventional fm sounds but also delivers a huge range of styles from basses to brasses, pads to leads to even percussion.

This is free to try. The cost to unlock all features is $17.99

••• SYNTH •••
It is based on two interacting FM Synthesizers capable of forming the most complex timbres. A clever arrangement of synthesis, wave shaping, filtering, FX and modulation unfolds into a serious sound design tool for epic sonic creation. Aparillo uses many parameters that can be modulated for individual adjustments PER voice. Each of the sixteen voices interact with almost two dozen targets in a variety of ways for a continuous transformation and to create endless rhythms and melodic progressions.

••• FX •••
The integrated effects include a free-signalflow Filter/Spacial Comb device, a polyphonic Auto Pan with multiple waveforms, the obligatory Delay, our finest Reverb algorithm, and a Sugar Bytes innovation, the Spacializer. This is a very special breed of delay based effect, which can work as a delay, reverb or tuned comb filter and can add room, plucked strings or even pinged percussion to your sound.

••• ORBITER ••
The superstar of Aparillo is the Orbiter, an instinctual “mass-controller” you move through Aparillo’s endless sonic universes for one-touch sound morphing.

Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Woodulator

I reviewed Woodman’s Woodulator back in October and well I fell in love with this app. This new update just made it even better.

Ver 1.1 Nov 21, 2018
– added Reverse mode to the Pitch shifters (more Craziness ! )
– added Sawtooth Up and Sawtooth Down to the LFO modes
– LFO modes can now be seen and toggled from main window

– fixed bug in gain calculation of Level rotaries

The Woodulator is a delay and pitch shifter inspired by analog bucket brigade delays. It also includes 2 versatile modulators.
Pitch shifting is obtained by increasing or decreasing the clock in the delay line and not by FFT calculations.

– Has 2 pitch shifters which can go up or down according to a harmonic scale or in chorus mode

– Modulator source can be internal LFO or external side chain

– Modulator destination can be pitch frequency, pitch amplitude, delay amplitude, panning. or feedback amount.
– Modulation of pitch frequency can be up, down or both.

– Delay line color can be set with LP/HP/BP filter and Saturation level.

– Includes HP and LP filters on the input signal

– Includes LP filter on pitch out signals.

– Pitch shifters have Reverse mode.
– BPM can be set, tapped or synced by the DAW host.

– LFO Square has slew-rate control. (control at 100% generates triangle waveform)

– LFO’s have convenient beat/bar timing popup.

– Delay and pitch signals can be panned L-R on a stereo bus/track.

– Delay and pitch shifter timing can be synced to the bar or re-synced manually (playing live)


– Presets can be stored in iCloud Drive (makes them available on all your devices).

– Presets can be switched with Midi Program Changes.

– Major controls can be set with Midi CC messages.
