Echo Pitch Audio Effect With Audiobus
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Echo Pitch pitch-shifting multi-delay for iPhone. Echo Pitch has 4 delays where each delayed signal can be pitched one octave up or down in 1/2 steps, and can function as a 4 voice harmonizer. Echo Pitch also has a built-in looper, amp simulator and reverb. Each of the four delays can be routed into the other for incredible, swirling, ambient washes and otherworldly sounds.

What’s New in Version 1.2
-status bar is now hidden for better appearance, particularly when using Audiobus
Thanks everyone for all the positive feedback and feature requests.
We’ll keep the updates coming!

Echo Pitch works best with an iOS audio interface, such as the Fender Slide or iRig. Echo Pitch is also Audiobus and Inter-App Audio compatible (for IAA, launch Echo Pitch first).

Klevgrand Syndt Synthesizer For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Syndt is a high quality polyphonic synthesizer with a lot of possibilities. The oscillator waveform can be morphed between pure sine to pure square and supports alternation of pulse width. Both the shape and pulse width can be modulated by two independent LFOs. Finetuned low pass and high pass filters combined with a separate filter attack setting (optionally based on velocity) makes possibilities to create some raw and interesting sounds.

The additional LFO can be shaped exactly as the oscillator, and optionally controls filters, gain and pitch (using a modulation wheel or just automatcally). This LFO can be synchronized to a AUv3 host.

Globally there’s a nice stereo chorus, ping pong stereo delay (that also can sync to a AUv3 hosts bpm) and EQ.

Key features:

* AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria, AUM etc.
* 70 professionally made presets
* XY pad based oscillator and LFO (PWM on the X axis and morphs between sine and square on the Y axis)
* Independent mini-LFO (sine only) for each axis of the oscillator XY-pad.
* LP / HP filter with resonance
* LP Filter can be velocity sensitive
* LP Filter has an optional attack time
* LFO can affect LP filter, HP filter, gain level and pitch
* LFO has an optional attack time
* LFO can be syncronized with an AUv3 host (AUv3 mode only!)
* Ping pong stereo delay (optionally syncs to host)
* Stereo Chorus
* Three band EQ
* Legato mode with glide speed parameter
* Pitch bend range

Important: Syndt in stand-alone mode does not support IAA or MIDI. You can try it out using the keyboard at the bottom, but that’s it. We recommend using Syndt with AUv3 compatible hosts.

OBS! Syndt oversamples the signal and uses sophisticated DSP features which makes it consume quite some CPU. An iPad AIR 2 or better is recommended if you’re planning to use many voices simultaneously.

Ondes Ribbons Electronic Instrument
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Inspired by early electronic instruments such as the Ondes Martenot and the Theremin, Ribbons (formerly “Ondes”) emulates the fluid playing style of those classic instruments with an interface and synthesis engine firmly grounded in the present day.

Whether you’re gliding through melodies & chord changes or creating dense polyphonic sci-fi soundscapes, Ribbons is an instrument unlike any you’ve played before.

What’s New in Version 1.2
• Ondes is now “Ribbons.”
• Super relaxing new color scheme.
• Wondrous new icon.
• Updated to latest version of Audiobus.

•••• Expressive Playing Surface ••••

Slide freely between notes, Ribbons doesn’t limit you to the keys on a keyboard.
Adjustable note snapping for ultimate flexibility in playing style and ease of use.
Use the hold function to sustain notes while you take an epic solo on top.
Vertical movement can be mapped to volume and synthesizer parameters, adding dynamic possibilities to your music.
More polyphony than you have fingers!
Adjustable keyboard range and size.
Guidelines help you play in key. Choose from common scale types in any key or create your own.
Alternate tuning systems let you explore the world of microtonal sound!

•••• Unique Synthesis Engine ••••

Morphing wavetable oscillator with five wavetable sets.
Swarm oscillators! Two extra oscillators can be detuned and lag behind to create new textures.
Wavetable modulation sources include Y-Axis, sine wave, noise, circle, and ADSR envelope.
Resonant low pass filter.
Filter modulation sources include ADSR envelope, sine wave, and Y-axis.
Amplifier section with master volume, Y-axis control, and ADSR envelope.
Y-axis can be mapped to control the rate and depth of wavetable and filter LFOs.

•••• Effects ••••

Large selection of reverb types with adjustable amount.
Delay effect adjustable level, feedback, time and filter.

•••• MIDI ••••

Use Ribbons as a MIDI controller to control your favorite software and hardware synths. Map each touch to a unique MIDI Port/ Channel for polyphonic pitch bend. Because of Ribbons’ unique pitch bend capabilities, it isn’t like other controllers, so make sure to read the instructions to learn about how to get the best results.

•••• Inter-App Audio ••••

Record directly to Garageband and other audio apps on your iPad using Inter-App Audio or Audiobus.
Built-in Inter-App Audio transport allows you to control a host app’s play, record, and rewind buttons.
Supports Audiobus State Saving.

•••• Beautiful Design ••••
Visualization of synthesis parameters makes for fun and intuitive editing of parameters.
Clutter free screen lets you focus on making music.

Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Dhalang Microtonal Groovebox is a standalone music software accessible use of alternative tuning systems in electronic music composition, production and performance. Dhalang offers internal synthesizers and samplers with multitrack mixing and effecting possibilities that can be controlled with internal sequencers, touch screen or standard MIDI input. In addition to it’s traditional multitrack piano roll editing and sequencing, Dhalang also features several generative and algorithmic methods for more experimental sequencing of ((micro)tonal) music.

What’s New in Version 3.0

Audiobus 3

Synths:
– Envelope modes for analog synth: Rising (old) and Diving (new).

Sequencing:
– Vector and Matrix views update from state machine changes (in Instant mode)
– State machine state delay countdown shown also as number.
– When a vector turns off on a state change, it sends note off message to it’s target synth.

Other:
– New engine sample rate: Amiga NTSC Frequency.

Features in short:

– Various preset tuning systems and scales with a custom tuning editor.
– Analog-style, physically modelled, additive and FM method monophonic and polyphonic synths,
– Audio sample player with mini granulizer and audio data auto-segmentation.
– Piano roll and control automation sequencers.
– Algorithmic/generative sequencers: vector, matrix and particle.
– Mixer with four stereo buses and many sound effects.
