IceGear Lagrange Synthesizer Audio Unit

Lagrange synthesizer has two oscillators, a noise generator and two filters that can be selected from various algorithmic models. You can choose from 20 different routings to connect these modules. With this feature, Lagrange makes it possible to create a variety of tones in short steps.

Lagrange works not only on the iPad but also on the iPhone. It also supports Audio Unit Extensions (AUv3), so you can plug in to AUv3 compatible host. For each screen size, different layouts are designed to be easy to use and intuitive.

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. That finally gives you unlimited control over new grounds of sound manipulation.Aparillo for iPad will seamlessly integrate with your mobile studio setup.

We built in MIDI support (Virtual, Network, External, Bluetooth), Audio Unit v3 and Ableton Link.
Syncing your presets to use them accross other devices couldn’t be easier with iCloud.

Enjoy Aparillo, the more you dig into it the more you fall in love with it!

• Standalone & Audio Unit v3
• FM Synthesizer with 16 Voices
• Formant Shifting, Wave Folding & Shifting
• Multi-Mode Filter with Spacializer
• Orbiter for one-touch Sound Morphing

Ruismaker Noir

Ruismaker Noir is almost available to the public. Bram Bos is currently coding away but gives us a rough ETA of 1 week give or take a few days!!

Woot I was lucky enough to get a quick testflight sneak peak and I’m loving this app so much thanks. Here is a quick screen capture of an idea I started within minutes after downloading this app.

Just a quick screen record. Just used the free Roli Noise for additional high hats and percussion.

Sunvox Update Is Huge
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

SunVox iPad App

SunVox is the most powerful music creation tool for iOS. It is a small and fast cross-platform modular synthesizer with pattern based sequencer (tracker).

v1.9.4 (29 jul 2018):

* user files are now available through the Files app;
* partial USB/Bluetooth keyboard support (no key release, no Home/End, no F1/F2/…);
* improved iPhone X display support;
* sound engine optimization;
* indicating the modules whose controllers are tied to the MIDI;
* additional slider for scrolling the controllers when there is not enough space on the screen;
* spectrogram has been added to the to the spectrum analyzer;
* detailed settings of the spectrum analyzer are now available through the main menu -> Preferences -> Modules;
* Amplifier: new controller “Gain” for high amplification (x100, x1000 and higher);
* Analog Generator: new option “True zero attack/release” – turn it on when you need a very fast (instantaneous) zero attack or/and release;
* Analog Generator: new waveforms: “noise with spline interpolation (sampler)”, “white noise”, “pink noise”, “red noise”, “blue noise”, “violet noise”, “grey noise”;
* Compressor: new mode “peak zero latency” for compression/limiting without delay; modes “peak” and “RMS” operate with a delay of 1 ms;
* Distortion: new types: “foldback2”, “foldback3”, “overflow”;
* GPIO: max number of pins is increased to 256;
* LFO: new waveform “random interpolated” (same as random (5), but with a smoother transition between the signal levels);
* DrumSynth: three additional panning controllers for the bass, hihat and snare;
* Kicker and DrumSynth: panning controller can now be set locally (for each note separately);
* Kicker: “Boost” (old name – “Vol.addition”) controller works again after it was accidentally broken in SunVox 1.6 🙂 (base SunVox version in the project properties must be 1.9.4 or higher);
* Timeline: new function “set restart position” – use it to change the position which the project should restart from after the project end;
* pattern effect 03 (slide to note): default speed value (XXYY) is 256 (100 in hex);
* new pattern effect 24: take a note from line XXYY on the same track; if the note to the left of the effect is specified, it will be used as the transposition value (relative to C5: c5 – one semitone higher, C4 – one octave lower, etc.); if the module number is missing, then the module number from line XXYY will be used;
* new pattern effect 25: take a random note from the range of lines XX..YY (inclusive) on the same track;
* new pattern effect 26: take a note from track XXYY on the same line;
* new pattern effect 27: take a random note from the range of tracks XX..YY (inclusive) on the same line;
* new pattern effect 28: take a note from line XXYY on track 0;
* new pattern effect 29: take a random note from the range of lines XX..YY (inclusive) on track 0; see example “pat effect 29 random note from trk0”;
* module remapping: “pattern” button has been added;
* dialog window shortcuts: Y or ENTER = first button on the left; N = second button; ESC = cancel; 1…9 = buttons from left to right;
* if you enter the file name “exporttest” when exporting to WAV, the SunVox engine speed test will be performed (without saving to disk);
* new keyboard shortcut: CTRL + SHIFT + N – new project;
* new keyboard shortcut: SHIFT + F10 – play from the pattern cursor;
* new instruments: keyboard/NR SuperSaw (lo-fi), analog11, analog12, pads/analog_distorted2, wind/NR Sax;
* new instruments and effects from other users (see the instruments and effects folders);
* new simple examples: idm, pat effect 29 random note from trk0;
* various small changes and improvements;
* updated version of SunVox library for developers;
* bug fixes.
* MultiCtl: new controllers “Response” and “Sample rate” to smoothly change the output value; response=1000 – immediate change; response 1000 – smooth change; optimal sample rate = 150Hz, please avoid higher values without the urgent need;
