Bram Bos Perforator Rhythmic Gate AUv3
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Perforator is a rhythmic gating audio effect: it will creatively snip, cut, gap and filter incoming audio to create rhythmic patterns out of sustained sounds.

By tuning the slice envelopes you can create anything from classic staccato “trance gate” sounds to emulations of sloppy pumping sidechain compression.

Two gating mechanisms can be dialled in: an AMP EG gate (the traditional way of gating) and a 12dB/Oct lowpass filter which will rapidly carve away high frequencies from your sound to effectively silence them.

– AUv3 Audio Effect, works in all AU compatible hosts
– automatically syncs with your project’s tempo
– edit Left an Right channel independently
– built-in preset manager with a ton of factory presets
– all AU Parameters exposed for host automation
– user manual available on ruismaker.com
– Universal: works on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch
– Bonus Feature: AU MIDI output*

* AU MIDI: both envelopes (L+R) can send their values out as MIDI CC messages to mimic ‘parameter lock’ messages in other plugins/apps. Note: this feature requires iOS11+ and a host compatible with AU MIDI from effects.

FAC Maxima Adds Waveform Viewer
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Fac Maxima is an extremely useful audio utility effect. I use it in almost all of my projects. FAC Maxima is an audio effect designed to provide automatic gain control of your audio materials to ensure that the levels stay consistent and never exceed 0dB. It’s a clever combination of dynamic processors that can be set to provide a gentle transparent signal boost respecting the initial dynamic or significant colorised level maximisation. Thanks to a unique signal path, algorithms and a small set of parameters, FAC Maxima makes a complicated task easy.

What’s New:
• New waveform viewer: optional scales, mirroring, threshold line feedback, VU Meter Peak/Rms and general widget optimisation.
• Automatic setting of the startup view (small vs large). Can be changed if the host supports the view configuration management.

In addition to the classic final stage application, FAC Maxima excels on individual tracks too. With a few changes it’s easy to go from the common gain deviation compensation, e.g. for vocals, to drastical audio changes that will bring your audio material to new territories: boost reverb tails, flattenize drums… The applications are various and the possibilities are limitless.

• Get the final touch!
FAC Maxima definitely makes audio louder and that makes it an effective tool in many mastering engineers’ arsenals.

• Be creative!
Emphasis subtitle details, sometimes floor contains treasure, you will have a completely new listen to your old tracks! The audio background may indeed contain noise, but sometimes also “pearls” that may be revealed.

• Go further!
Tired by the advertisement boost, or important speech level variation in broadcasting? Use FAC Maxima to maintain the level constant. DJ’s may also benefit from the effects to normalise in real time the level of the mixed tracks.

As with all FAC products the interface has a unique sober look and provides a great user experience. FAC Maxima also brings a real-time multi-waveform graph having a 6s buffer of the audio material before and after operations, this will help on setting the right parameters and have a visual feedback.

Easy-to-use, this audio toolbox can do everything from simple filtering and “warmth” to full metal audio destruction.

Phasemaker FM Synth Audio Unit AUv3
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Phasemaker FM Synthesizer Audio Unit

6-Operator FM Synth on iOS, building on the legacy of the classic synthesizers that defined the digital era of the 1980s.

It also happens to be the first FM Audio Unit instrument (AUv3), offering tight integration in many leading mobile DAWs, such as Auria, Garageband, Cubasis, Modstep and AUM.

(Note: there is a known bug in the current version of Garageband which may cause compatibility issues with some AU plugins).

Frequency Modulation brings rich timbres and dynamic evolving sounds full of personality which are impossible to create with analog modelling. The 6-Operator architecture allows for lively multi-layered sounds with lots of expression and playability.

Phasemaker’s characteristic FM sound will add classic digital character to your mobile sonic arsenal which no other analog synth can bring.

System requirements: iPad 4+, iPad Mini 2+, iOS 9 or higher

– Audio Unit v3 compatible
– CoreMidi compatible standalone mode (with background audio)
