Chameleon Audio Unit Sampler For iOS

Chameleon is an AUv3 compatible sampler instrument plugin for your favourite DAW. The program can run as a standalone app in order to record audio samples from the internal microphone or professional audio interface. It also supports incoming Inter-App Audio connections for sampling directly from other iOS applications, however it is primarily intended to be used as an AUv3 Instrument plugin for applications such as Cubasis, AUM, Auria, Meteor, Gargeband etc. The plugin can additionally be loaded as an AUv3 effect in order to record audio passing through it from other AUv3 Instrument sources, which makes it a very versatile and useful tool.

So what is a sampler? A sampler is a device that allows you to imitate other instruments with just a few short audio snippits. Although it comes with a library of presets it also allows you to create your own. You do this by recording multiple audio clips and mapping them to the notes on a MIDI keyboard and Chameleon does the rest using a sophisticated pitch shifting algorithm to fill in the blanks. Recorded samples can either be layered or mapped freely over a 7 octave range and saved as individual presets. Presets are then organised into custom categorised banks which can be exported and shared with others.

Just think, you can sample all your favourite synth sounds and carry them around on your iPhone/iPad without the inconvenience of lugging heavy gear around with you. Sample anything from musical instruments to vocal snippits, drum machines or ambient noises. The possibilities are endless.

Recording is incredible easy. Just create a New Patch and press record. Chameleon will wait for you to play a note before recording begins. Once recorded press the LEARN button and tap the note range on the virtual or MIDI keyboard to map the sample. Repeat this as many times as required, tweak the settings and save your patch. Additionally you can setup loop points with the ability to apply crossfade.

Chameleon also has a quite sophisticated arpegiator which allows you to create complex mixtures of notes and chords with glide, hold and re-triggering options.

On board reverb, digital delay and chorus effects are available to give your samples a more polished touch. We also include 4 touch pads for quickly dialing in on a sound or for easy effect automation. Configurable touch ADSR and modulation options are available too.

Chameleon can also import audio samples using iOS Files integration or you can make use of Copy / Paste to quickly drop one of more samples into a patch. You can also freely edit samples using the built in tools such as normalise, fade in, fade out, crop, clear options etc.

You can run Cameleon as a standalone app and map external MIDI keyboards (Bluetooth MIDI support also included) and perform audio sampling outside of your DAW. This is provided for convenience since you can’t record input when hosted as an AUv3 Instrument plugin. As mentioned earlier you can also load the app as an AUv3 Effect plugin too which allows you to record directly from other AUv3 instruments.

Yes some DAW’s have built in samplers which only have the ability to playback libraries provided with the software. Chameleon allows you to built your own libraries of sounds and share them with others. There’s a budding rapper in you dying to get out and we have just the tool!

4Pockets Atomizer Glitch App

Atomizer glitch stutter pitch app

This is an AUv3 compatible audio effect which can be used as plugin with your favourite DAW such as Cubasis, Meteor, Auria, AUM or GarageBand. It supports a modern graphical interface and presets with stereo meters for monitoring signal levels.

Atomizer is a great plugin for adding beat synced glitch and stuttering, pitch shifting and various forms of filtering effects to your songs. The plugin splices incoming audio into samples divisible by the current tempo and allows you to play them as a continuous seamless loop blended over the original audio. You do this using the grid of vertical finger pads, each representing samples of increasing lengths. Simply tap and hold one of these pads to repeat the currently playing section of incoming audio. Slide your finger up and down to fade in and out the repeated sample. Slide left and right to increase or decrease the sample length of the currently playing sample.

A customisable digital delay section allows held samples to trail out on release, automatically syncing it’s delay times with the loop size (when set to Auto).

The second finger pad (XY pad) defaults to a LP/HP filter sweep, but can be configured to manipulate effects such as real time pitch shifting, panning, flanging, overdrive, bit-crunch and modulation effects.

The XY pad also supports multi-touch, allowing the play cursor to glide between your fingers at a specified speed. Press the HOLD button and you can then release your fingers and have them playback a set pattern. Use the FOLLOW feature to follow finger movements etc.

The envelope knob morphs between fade in and fade out envelopes and can be assigned to the XY Pad to add additional dynamics to the repeats. A configurable modulation section also allows you to automate panning or vibrato and assign various envelope shapes.

Atomizer is an incredibly fun way of adding background vocals, selective echoes, complex backings or just shear carnage to your mix! This is yet another great tool for those wanting to add a creative or experimental twist to any form of electronic composition, adding a few extra dynamics into your mix with very little effort.

NOTE: To record parameter automation in Meteor please ensure the appropriate tracks Controller Resolution is set to ‘Fine’.
