Guitarscaper Generative Mood App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Guitarscaper is a generative music app and virtual instrument that’s easy on the ears and fun to play. Launch the app, and with a single tap of the auto-play button, guitarscaper will create evolving and ambient guitar-based soundscapes that are unique every time.

While all of the guitarscaper sounds originated from a single electric guitar, many have been extensively processed to create an “impossible guitar” that can morph between orchestral-type swells and ethereal choir-like sounds. Think of it as guitar DNA taken to the next level!

Guitarscaper in auto-play mode is the perfect companion for relaxing, studying or providing non-intrusive headphone music at work or on your commute. You can even set a timer so you can fall asleep to its gentle and soothing tones.

You can also play guitarscaper as a virtual instrument using the dedicated keypads and performance loop recorders, and tailor the sounds with built-in reverb, delay and “character” effects parameters. And while you’re playing, guitarscaper can lend a hand by adding auto-accompaniment parts and even provides hints for notes it thinks might sound good depending on which notes you play!

As a sample-based instrument, guitarscaper currently supports two “moods” – a light mood, based on the E major / pentatonic Yo scale, and a sad mood, based on the Em pentatonic scale.

Please note that guitarscaper is not a chromatic or MIDI-compatible instrument, and it is unlikely to become one.

You can also record and process the audio output of guitarscaper using any Inter-App Audio host that supports IAA Generators.

You are free to use guitarscaper in your own recordings or live events and installations on a royalty-free basis. All I would ask for is a simple credit that includes the name of the app – “guitarscaper”.

I hope you will agree the guitarscaper interface, while minimalist and a perhaps a little cryptic initially, will eventually become very easy to use. Please do take the time to read the quick-start guide which can be found on the guitarscaper.com website. This is also the best place to ask questions, get technical support or report any issues.

Lo-Fly Dirt AU Distortion Effect
Author View comments Tags

An audio coloration utility plugin featuring individual modes for classic emulation of some iconic music production tools. This tool is meant to bring character, or “dirt” to your incoming audio signals.

Lo-Fly Dirt installs as an Audio Unit effect for hosts that support the format such as Audio Bus, Beatmaker 3, Garage Band, Cubasis, AUM, etc.

Default Mode:
Adds subtle character of the input sound. Simple saturation and light, preset compression are added to the overall sound bringing out unique tones & textures of your source audio. The wet/dry knob at the 100 or full position would leave source audio “warmed up.”

60 Mode:
This preset mode is based on some of our favorite characteristics of an iconic drum machine. Activating this button should invite you to 12 bit nostalgia immediately boasting tasteful saturation, small amounts of compression, and a more rounded high end. Great on drums.

404 Mode:
One of our favorites, this mode is the only mode that should add subtle low-pass filtering to the input signal. This mode will apply low pass filtering at 12db per octave around 11.6Khz. The wet/dry knob will continue to filter the sound to no more than 200Hz. The signal will benefit from some additional signal boosting with minimal make-up gain and small amounts of bit rate reduction, or “dirt.”

1200 Mode:
Also built around our love for another iconic drum machine, this mode brings great punch, character, and dirt to any signal it treats. Especially useful for drums and percussion based audio.
more punchier variation of the 60 mode. Enjoy 12 bit goodness by default, but additionally a boost the signals character by our dirt and boost in the low-mid frequencies.

8 Bit Mode:
Simply put, this mode brings back the classic sound of a legendary game console. We’ve added a bit of punch to the incoming signal and you’re able to blend it with great 8 bit artifacts that will allow for some brand new creations…and fun!

SK- 5 Mode:
Also built off the things we love about the classic 8 bit sound, but with a twist…this mode adds HP filtering and punch! Instant dirt is applied when this mode is activated, high pass filtering and punch is applied as you move the signal from dry to wet. The HP filter is set to cutoff at 300Hz.

Future Sonic Reverser Delay AU
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

A stereo delay effect with LP/HP filter, can be used as an audio unit or as a standalone application. The Reverser Delay is a crystal-clear stereo delay comprised of independent left and right delay channels giving the user separate control over the delay time and feedback for each channel. Each channel also has a dedicated filter to sculpt the tone of the repeats, with the option of switching between high pass and low pass.

However, the crown jewel of the Reverser Delay is its reverse feature which allows for either the left or right delay channels (or both) to be reversed allowing for sonic experimentation not capable on a typical delay unit.

The Reverser Delay makes experimentation simple with an easy to understand user interface. But if users aren’t sure where to start, they can jump straight in and explore the Reverser Delay’s factory presets for inspiration.

Features:

– Stereo delay effect with delay offset, reverse mode, feedback and mix
– Tape-like resyncing of delay offset
– Per-channel state variable filter, offering low pass and high pass modes
– Mono or stereo input
– Clean and simple design
– Runs on both iPads and iPhones
– Selection of factory presets (available when run in an Audio Unit host)

Neo Drone Virtual Theremin
Author View comments Tags

neo Drone is innovative theremin like synthesizer. The pitch of the oscillators is controlled by moving your hand in the air without touching the device. The hand is tracked by the front face camera.

The algorithm behind was made by me on the second Music Hakathon in Sofia.
You can control the range of the synth by adjusting the light sensitivity, but the app is not working in dark environments. The tonal range is 2 and a half octaves and you can play in legato and staccato mode.
The touch area of the device is working as a kill switch so you can produce these talking synth sound.

Features:
– play without touching the device
– kill switch
– 2.5 octaves
– adjust camera range with light sensitivity slider
– core midi – so you can add USB midi keyboard to the show
– nice and fat sound
– visual color indicator for the playing note
– legato and staccato mode
