Virtual ANS Version 3
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , ,

Virtual ANS 3 For iPad

Virtual ANS is a software simulator of the unique Russian synthesizer ANS – photoelectronic musical instrument created by Evgeny Murzin from 1938 to 1958. The ANS made it possible to draw music in the form of a spectrogram (sonogram), without live instruments and performers. It was used by Stanislav Kreichi, Alfred Schnittke, Edward Artemiev and other Soviet composers in their experimental works. You can also hear the sound of the ANS in Andrei Tarkovsky’s movies Solaris, The Mirror, Stalker.

The simulator extends the capabilities of the original instrument. Now it’s a full-featured graphics editor where you can convert sound into an image, load and play pictures, draw microtonal/spectral music and create some unusual deep atmospheric sounds. This app is for everyone who loves experiments and is looking for something new.

Key features:
* unlimited number of pure tone generators;
* powerful sonogram editor – you can draw the spectrum and play it at the same time;
* any sound (from a WAV file or a Microphone/Line-in) can be converted to image (sonogram) and vice versa;
* support for MIDI devices;
* polyphonic synth mode with MIDI mapping;
* supported file formats: WAV (only uncompressed PCM), PNG, JPEG, GIF;
* Audio Unit Extension (AUv3), Audiobus;
* many new features compared to version 2.3; see the full list: http://warmplace.ru/soft/ans/changelog.txt

Woodstepper Sampler Step Sequencer

Woodstepper Sampler Step Sequencer

The WoodStepper is a sequencer having both audio and midi out.
It consists of 4 independent 8-steps sequencers which can be linked to a 16, 24 or 32 steps sequencer.
Each step can send 4 midi messages (note on, CC, …) to 2 midi channels.
The audio part for each sequencer has a pitch (down) shifter, (Moog lowpass) filter with ASR envelope, saturator, amplitude ASR envelope and delay line which can all be set independently per step.
The audio sources can be the track audio, sampled audio or the built-in VCO.
The app can be used stand-alone (device audio input and output) or as a plugin in a DAW.
In this case it has to be inserted in an audio track and not in an instrument track as WoodStepper is still an audio effects plugin with additional midi input and output.

Traktor Dj 2 iPad

Traktor Dj 2 iPad

Whether it’s a few friends at a house party, or a few thousand in a warehouse, we want to make mixing tunes and playing sets something everybody can do. TRAKTOR DJ 2 is a DJ app without barriers; it’s free, SoundCloud Go+ integration means you have access to an endless track collection, and TRAKTOR’s song recommendations help you choose which one to play next.

STAY IN SYNC
Throw on a couple of tracks, and TRAKTOR DJ 2 keeps them on-time and in-tune. Because everything’s on-beat, you’ll have plenty of time to start mixing things up.

SOUNDCLOUD GO+
From chart toppers and guilty pleasures, to underground edits and bootleg bangers, SoundCloud GO+ integration means TRAKTOR DJ 2 packs a record bag that’s got it all. All your likes and playlists are available right in the app – just drag and drop any track you want into a deck and spin away.

SHAPE YOUR SOUND
Adjust the sound of your mix with EQs and a filter on each channel – this means you can cut the bass of one track, for example, and blend in only the vocals and higher frequencies for a smooth and creative mix. Effects let you manipulate your sound and twist up your tracks when things start getting groovy.

FREEZE MODE: REAL-TIME REMIXING
Hit the snowflake icon on TRAKTOR DJ 2 for iPad to freeze the waveform. The track will carry on playing, but you can tap directly onto the frozen section to play it like an instrument. It’s great for chopping up vocals, or for dissecting interesting drum beats to make them your own.

MADE FOR TRAKTOR KONTROL S2
TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 MK3 is our take-anywhere DJ controller. It’s made for TRAKTOR DJ 2, so you can plug and play straight away. TRAKTOR DJ 2 is also fully integrated with the TRAKTOR AUDIO 2 and TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1.

Features:

SYNC: Hit play, and TRAKTOR gets your tunes in sync.
MATCH: Get recommendations on what track to play next, based on what’s playing.
HOTCUES: A bit like bookmarks in a track – jump to breaks, vocal sections, or drops for live re-edits.
FREEZE MODE: Instantly slice a track into one-beat segments, and play them like an instrument.
FLUX MODE: Flux Mode means that the track’s relative position is never lost when mixing things up, so you’re always back on-groove after scratching or backspinning.
NUDGE TO BEATMATCH: Use the jog wheels, or nudge and stall the beat to beatmatch manually.
QUEUE LIST: Add tracks to a dynamic playlist that’s always at hand to plan your set on the fly.

Mozaic MIDI Creator

MIDI script app creator

Create your own MIDI plugins: MIDI filters, generative music tools, basic sequencers, MIDI control panels, chaos experiments… Let your imagination take you places.

Mozaic runs inside your favorite AU MIDI host, and gives you practical building blocks such as LFOs, pre-fab GUI layouts, musical scales, AUv3 support (with AU Parameters, transport events, tempo syncing, etc.), random generators and a super-simple yet powerful script language. Mozaic even offers quick access to your device’s Tilt Sensors for expressive interaction concepts!

The Mozaic Script language is designed from the ground up to be the easiest and most flexible MIDI language on iOS. A language by creatives, for creatives. You’ll only need to write a few lines of script to achieve impressive things – or to create that uber-specific thing that was missing from your MIDI setup.

Check out the Programming Manual on Ruismaker.com to learn about the script language and to get inspiration for awesome scripts of your own.

Mozaic comes with a sizable collection of tutorials and pre-made scripts which you can use out of the box, or which can be a starting point for your own plugin adventures.

Check out this cool example of a custom app designed in Mozaic:

Download Chordulator for free (requires Mozaic) https://patchstorage.com/the-chordulator/

Features in a nutshell:

– Easy to learn Mozaic Script language: easy to learn, easy to read

– Sample-accurate-everything: the tightest MIDI timing possible

– Built-in script editor with code-completion, syntax hints, etc.

– 5 immediately usable GUI layouts, with knobs, sliders, pads, etc.

– In-depth, helpful programming manual available on Ruismaker.com

– Easy access to LFOs, scales, MIDI I/O, AU parameters, timers

– AUv3; so you’ll get multi-instance, state-saving, tempo sync and resource efficiency out of the box

Mozaic opens up the world of creative MIDI plugins to anyone willing to put in a few hours and a hot beverage or two.

Practical notes:

– Mozaic requires a plugin host with support for AUv3 MIDI plugins (AUM, ApeMatrix, Cubasis, Auria, Audiobus 3, etc.)

– The standalone mode of Mozaic lets you edit, test and export projects, but for MIDI connections you need to run it inside an AUv3 MIDI host

– MIDI is not sound; Mozaic on its own does not make noise… so bring your own synths, drum machines and other instruments!

– AUv3 MIDI requires iOS11 or higher
