This is a mono instrument. One is probably all you need. But, it can be stacked with AU hosts

Express yourself. Create your signature sound. Simple controls allow you to easily sculpt your own bass or kick sound.

FAQ – LIMITED EDITION APPS

What happens if I get a new iPhone or iPad?

The limited edition apps you have already acquired will remain in the app store so that you’ll always be able to download them as long as you have the same iTunes account.

What happens after the “app drop” release time is over?

The apps will remain in the App Store so that you may download updates. After the “app drop”, the price in the app store will go to the maximum price tier. As long as you keep the same iTunes account, you may download updates and copies to new devices for free!

Will the apps still be updated?

The apps will be updated for new iOS versions, to ensure that your limited edition apps continue to work as iOS technology progresses.

Will the apps support iPhone?

We will try to make most of these apps universal. We’re planning a free universal upgrade to the Bass 808 Synth. While the app is currently iPad only, an iPhone version is on the way and will be available while the app is still on sale.

Join the fun! 🙂

Bram Bos Mononoke App

Mononoke is an unconventional synthesizer, designed to compose evolving soundscapes and musical textures.

Feedback routing

What sets Mononoke apart from other synths is that its voices (4 in each section) can be routed back into each other in multiple ways, creating all sorts of overtones and pulsating resonant frequencies. Sometimes harmonic, sometimes weirdly atonal. Sometimes clear and delicate as icicles, sometimes harsh as metallic blades, sometimes soft as fresh snow. This interaction between voices helps fuse all layers together into a coherent musical landscape.

A tale of two engines

The synthesizer engines (each of the two sections has its own independent engine) have relatively simple controls, which influence a complex system of many invisible, interconnected LFOs. But this is not your bread-and-butter general purpose synthesizer: think of Mononoke as one huge FM synthesizer where each voice is an independently playable operator. Together all operators contribute to a single soundscape.

Expressive pads

Complex soundscapes can be created live, using the 8 performance pads which let you modulate each voice independently in several dimensions. Your interactions with the pads will also be sent out as MPE/MIDI (when loaded as an AU plugin in a compatible host) so you can record and tweak your session. The onscreen pads can be latched individually so some voices can be used as drones, while others as can be added and removed as extra sonic layers. The pads are fully integrated in the Audio Unit plugin.

Connectivity

Mononoke is designed as an AUv3 plugin, with advanced Audio Unit features such as MPE input and output (!), a fully exposed array of AU parameters for automation and all the connectivity and scalability you can expect from modern plugins.

The standalone mode is basic (just meant for jamming and creating presets) and does not offer any connectivity, so if you want to use Mononoke in conjunction with other apps and effects you’ll need to load it into a host, such as Garageband, Audiobus, AUM or Cubasis.

Summary:

– Audio Unit (AUv3) plugin

– 8 voice polyphony, 2 independent engines with 4 voices each

– Compatible with MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression) and MIDI

– MIDI Input and Output (only available when used as an Audio Unit plugin)

– Limited standalone mode for jamming (full screen, no connectivity)

– 8 independently tunable performance pads for expressive interaction

– Universal, fully scalable to any screen size, supports fullscreen mode in AU hosts

– Freely tunable voices, or quantized to semitones (with overall finetuning)

– iOS10 (MIDI/MPE output from the plugin requires iOS11) or higher

Also contains Mononoke Pads: an extra AUv3 MIDI controller plugin for playing MPE compatible synths using Mononoke’s pads. Note: this is a separate plugin which will be installed in your MIDI Plugin collection. Mononoke Pads requires iOS 11.

Audio Damage Continua Synth For iOS

Continua is a three-oscillator / dual-filter six-voice virtual analog synth, with fully polyphonic modulation sources and built-in custom-designed effects, for everything from complex, evolving chill-out soundscapes to New Wave synth stabs

Full PDF manual available at the Audio Damage website.

• Standalone Version w/ IAA and AUv3

Your Continua purchase comes with a standalone version (with Inter-App Audio) and an AudioUnit V3 for using with an AUv3 host like GarageBand, Cubasis, or AUM.

• Three Flexible Oscillators

Continuously variable morphing waveform, with warp, shape, and skew controls.

• Dual Morphing Filters

Filters can be used in serial or parallel modes, and morph from lowpass through bandpass and highpass to notch in 2-pole and 4-pole configurations.

• Noise Source

Noise source features a “color” control that affects tonal characteristics of the noise.

• ADSR x 2

Continua has two ADSR-style envelope generators, with curve on attack, decay, and release.

• Flexible Envelope Generator (FEG) x 2

The two FEGs are arbitrary function generators, with up to 99 steps, curve and step level control, arbitrary loop points, and host tempo sync.

• Flexible Low-Frequency Oscillator (FLFO) x 4

The four FLFOs utilize four controls (phase, shape, skew, and warp) to access a virtually limitless palette of waveforms, and feature host tempo sync and retrigger.

• Sample And Hold

The S&H mod source can sample noise (random) or any of the other mod sources, at either a user-defined rate or a musical division, and includes built-in smoothing and distance limit (for a “walk” effect).

• Modulation

Every knob in Continua is a mod destination, with a very fast and simple assignment matrix access with a right-click on the knob (double-tap on iOS).

• Tuning Tables And Global Tuning Offset

Re-tune Continua to new intonations and temperaments using the open-source and easy-to-use TUN file format. A global tuning offset (default to A=440) allows you to easily retune the entire synth to match a different A frequency without using a tuning table.

• MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression)

Continua understands both “legacy” MIDI and MPE. Use your Linnstrument, Roli Seaboard, Haken Continuum, Madrona Labs Soundplane, or Sensel Morph (among others) to directly access per-note pressure, pitch bend, and modulation.

• Per-Instance Settings

Continua utilizes a per-instance customization method: set MPE mode, aftertouch smoothing, pitch bend range override, tuning table, and global tuning offset for each instance in your DAW, with an option to save any state as your global starting point.

• Factory Presets

Continua comes with a substantial collection of factory content, including Designer Presets from Red Means Recording, Glitch Machines, Red Sky Lullaby, and SonalSystem.

• Cross-Platform Preset Format

Continua utilizes an XML-based preset manager. Work between multiple systems without troubles, make a preset on your desktop machine and paste it to the iOS version with Handoff, easily share your creations with your friends, or make a preset bundle to sell.
