Expressive AudioGenerator AUv3

Indie audio app developer auDSPr has created auGEN X. You can think of auGEN X in two ways: first, it is a handy utility for making audio test sounds, and second, it is a performable creative sound design tool. On one end use auGEN X to help set up, test, calibrate, and optimize your audio system. On the other end use it to create a wide variety of interesting sounds. auGEN X has a full-featured audio oscillator, a high quality noise generator, and an impulse generator. The simple yet powerful user interface is designed for fast, precise, intuitive control over your signals. auGEN X works both as a Stand-Alone App and as an AUv3 Audio Unit Extension.

I started making this App because as an audio electronics engineer I could not find a single audio generator that does everything that I require AND is an AUv3 Audio Unit. It has developed into a cool tool for exploring sound design. Our goal is for auGEN X to be one of your Essentials in your audio toolbox. We hope you enjoy it and we’re excited to see and hear the cool things that you do with auGEN X.

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Magix Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Acoustica, Xmix, and many more. Subscribe to our RSS feed below to get updated when new apps are posted.
