CHAiOS Synth 2

CHAiOS SYNTH 2 is a synthesizer/melody generator that creates unique melodies with just one tap!
Place your finger on the main screen and a melody is generated by the CHAiOS algorithm.
If this melody sounds good, it can be looped and the sound can be tweaked using a number of parameters and effects. Or just swipe your finger and CHAiOS SYNTH 2 creates new melodies.
The options to modify the sound are carefully selected to work well together and provide a creative and fun workflow.

CHAiOS SYNTH 2 is a further development of the free and easy-to-use CHAiOS SYNTH, which was formerly developed at the University of Applied Sciences Duesseldorf. The new version is beefed up by a number of new features and improvements. Now CHAiOS SYNTH 2 has become a full professional synthesizer while staying as intuitive and uncomplicated as its predecessor.

With support for Inter-App Audio and Audiobus CHAiOS SYNTH 2 can be used together with other audio apps on iPad.

What’s New in Version 2.1

Introducing the new feature “SETS”: It’s a very easy and convenient way to store your sounds, loops and beats in up to eight sets. Use “SETS” to come back to the sounds you’ve created even after restarting CHAiOS SYNTH 2 or save different parts of your song and switch between them even while playing!

Watch this video to see how to use “SETS”:

Main features:
– 16 Step melody generator with unique random algorithm
– Wavetable oscillator with three different waveforms
– VA lowpass filter with variable resonance and cutoff frequency
– Delay- and reverb-effects
– ADSR envelopes for controlling amp and filter frequency
– Support for Audiobus and Inter-App Audio

DM2 Drum Machine

DM2 is an advanced Synthesis Drum Machine. It has been made by the core team that brought you DM1, one of the first Drum Machine for iPad, that won an Apple Design Award in 2012. Special 40% OFF price for the first week!

DM2 brings a new approach to Drum Synthesis with a powerful and easy to use graphic editor to create and manipulate sound. It it packed with ready-made factory Drum Kits. You can mix and match any sound from any drum kits to any track of your song. Play a song and load any drum kits (from factory kits or from any other songs) to listen to a completely new song every time.

As electronic musicians ourselves, we, at Audionomy, have developed DM2 with the intention of delivering the perfect mix between fun playability and powerful sonic capacities. We always keep in mind the importance of a beautiful design with the right balance of powerful abilities while avoiding clumsy interfaces.

DM2 offers 6 main sections:

1 – THE STEP SEQUENCER takes advantage of the iPad multi-touch screen for fast and creative patterns drawing. The Sequences handles 16 or 32 steps patterns and is polymeric (just gently tap and drag the blue handle at the right end of each track).

2 – THE DRUMS PAGE is a powerful graphic Audio Synthesis editor. Play, experiment and discover new sounds with the 6 graphs. Tap the little magnifying glass each title bar, it will expand the graph to a bigger size for extra precision.

3 – THE PADS PAGE simply lets you play and record any beat that tickles your fingers, with automatic quantize so that you don’t miss a beat. With a Beat Repeat effect for extra fun.

4 – THE MIXER PAGE for quick and subtle sound mixing of your drum kits. Large and spacey so that you can get the big picture. Pan and Solo included.

5 – THE FX SECTION offer a powerful Quad Pads Effect processors. Refine or super charge your sounds with this powerful Master effect chain.

6 – THE SONG PAGE allows you to quickly build a song with the patterns you have created. Just drag and drop the patterns onto the timeline. Each pattern in a song can be repeated for compact Song composition.

iConvolver Convolution Reverb For iPhone and iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,


iConvolver is an app for conveniently utilizing convolution reverb on an iOS device. Convolution is an effect that adds sampled reverberative properties to a sound to recreate the original properties of that sound. The data of these reverberative properties are called the Impulse Response(IR), and can record the properties of not only acoustic space but also from such things as hardware and speakers. By recording the properties of reverberation from acoustic spaces such as halls and studios, high grade hardware reverb, spring reverb, speaker cabinets and microphones, etc. to Impulse Response files, they can be reproduced in iConvolver.


As iConvolver comes with several Impulse Response files included, you can immediately test out those sounds.


***Main features***
+ Equipped with an original convolution engine.
+ Actualization of zero latency.
+ Compatible with external Impulse Response files(WAV/AIFF formats(1ch,2ch,4ch)). Open In is compatible with Zip files, and can extract Zip files as well. (Not compatible with password-protected Zip files)
+ Equipped with low pass and high pass filters for adjusting reverb sound.
+ Can be used in combination with other apps compatible with Audiobus and Inter-App Audio. Standalone operation also possible.
+ A universal app that can be used with both iPhone/iPad.
+ Comes with several original IR files(over 100) included.

***Main uses***
For recreating reverb, acoustic space, speaker cabinet sound, etc.

***Regarding hardware compatibility***
iConvolver by its nature requires a relatively heavy CPU load.
Devices with 64 bit CPU recommended.
iPhone 6 and above, iPad Air 2 and above are especially recommended.
By increasing the audio buffer size, and shortening the utilized IR, the memory load can be lessened.

Moog Model 15 Modular Synth For iPhone and iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Moog Model 15

The Moog Model 15 App is the first Moog modular synthesizer and synthesis educational tool created exclusively for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

* The Model 15 App requires iOS version 9.3 or later to work. *

Each facet of the Moog Model 15 modular synthesizer has been meticulously recreated in this application to ensure the power and transcendent sound quality of each module remains intact. The character, harmonic complexity and mystique of the Moog Model 15’s modules, from the legendary Moog 921–series oscillators and 904A Low Pass Filter, to the coveted 907 Fixed Filter Bank have been painstakingly preserved.

In order to develop the most immersive and expressive modular interface possible, the Model 15 App has been designed utilizing Apple’s new Metal advanced graphics engine. This ensures that all zooming, panning and modular patching throughout the application feels completely natural, something that would have been impossible otherwise.

The Model 15 App features both monophonic and 4-voice polyphonic operation is easily commanded via 4 seamlessly integrated controllers. Simple swipes and taps provide instant access to a traditional Moog keyboard, 1150 ribbon controller, 8-step sequencing arpeggiator and the award-winning Animoog keyboard with 22 built-in scales and polyphonic modulation capabilities.

Also included are extended features which expand the capabilities of the app beyond the traditional offerings of the hardware Moog Model 15. These include total MIDI integration, assignment for external control, use as a MIDI controller, dedicated Audio Bridge and MIDI Bridge modules, looping recorder module with overdubbing, a master ping-pong delay module and a new extension cabinet that includes additional amplifiers and voltage-controlled reversible attenuators that can be used for effects like ring-modulation.

Because the Model 15 App utilizes Apple’s Metal technology, only 64-bit devices are supported. Compatible devices include iPhone 5s or newer, iPod touch 6 or newer, iPad Air or newer, and the iPad Pro.
