Elsa Sampling Keyboard App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Elsa is a retro style sampling keyboard with tempo based looping. Record, save, load, reverse samples with a multi octave on screen keyboard or plug in your core midi device of choice, soft- or hardware. Elsa comes with three built in effects, a reverb, a resonant filter and a sample rate/bit crusher. Samples are looped in three different modes, one off, forward and/or forward-reverse. The start and end of playback also comes in three modes, one set of start and stop for all, one set per note and/or one set per octave, allowing for many different types of samples. Additionally at playback time, sample length can also be controlled by a set of sample dividers, 1-8.

What’s NEW:
1.8Nov 3, 2018

VirSyn AudioLayer Sampler

VirSyn AudioLayer Sampler For iOS

AudioLayer satisfies the most sought after gap for contemporary music production on iOS devices. AudioLayer is a full featured open standard audio multi-sampler pushing the boundaries beyond what has been available even in the desktop music production worlds. And all this integrated in all relevant iOS production environments especially the emerging AUv3 AudioUnit standard.

– SSE – Streaming Sample Engine –
The ultra efficient Streaming Sample Engine SSE is capable of playing hundreds of voices of big multi-sampled instruments even in strictly resource limited applications like using multiple instances of AudioLayer in AudioUnit host environments. Innovative features like Sub Sample Looping for perfect loops even in the audible range extend the range of applications even further.

– Perfect iCloud integration* –
The consequent usage of the open file structure of the Files app makes organising even large sample libraries a breeze. Sample recordings and Instrument designs made with AudioLayer are seamlessly available across all your devices and desktop. Even more this opens up new forms of collaborations with musicians all around the world to share your creations and work together.

– Multi Scope Editing –
To support the creation of complex multi-sampled instruments AudioLayer allows you to use a hierarchical structure of Layers and Zones each with it’s own sound manipulation parameters. A unique element of AudioLayer is the possibility to decide for each Zone at which Scope level your editing apply: For the all Zones in the Instrument, for the Layer only or individually for this Zone only. This opens a whole new world of creative options for sound mangling. For sound manipulation you can use a full set of Filters, Envelopes and LFOs to shape the pitch, timbre and level of the sound of each Zone.
SIS – Seamless Instrument Switching
The unique architecture of the Streaming Sample Engine allows for instant loading of even complex instruments and makes this switching from one Instrument to the next without cutting off the sound! And this includes of course also different effect setting

– Easy Design Workflow –
The built in audio sample recorder let you create Instruments on the fly in seconds. The Music Effect AudioUnit / Audiobus effect plugin of AudioLayer let you record multi-samples semi automatically directly inside your preferred host and instantly create an Instrument with the help of several Auto mapping options available. This includes file name based mapping of key ranges and velocities and automatic pitch detection. For the creatives we’ve also integrated a special “Single Cycle Waveform” detector making the use of this special files a breeze.

*App works also without iCloud, but less convenient.

Integration

• Stand-alone App
• AUv3 AudioUnit Instrument and Music Effect
• Inter App Audio
• Audiobus 3 Input/Effect with state saving support.
• Audio recorder with share function.
• Ableton Link compatible.

WerkBench Sampler Sequencer For iPad

WerkBench Sampler Sequencer For iPad

Werkbench arrives with a wicked new update! At the heart of WerkBench are two step sequencers that can sample sounds directly into rhythms and then warp those sounds with synthesizer type controls and high-quality audio effects.

What’s New in Version 3.1.0
**We added Ableton Link and Kymatica AudioShare support!**
-Ableton Link’s technology let’s you easily sync WerkBench with other apps and the rest of your studio. No computer or additional software required, It just works. It’s amazing. Thanks Ableton.
-AudioShare support allows easy transfer between WerkBench and the popular audio editing/managing app AudioShare by Kymatica. WerkBench can now open all types of audio files into the importer.

**We implemented a better ‘initialize’ option**
Previously, there was no way to start over completely from scratch. Now you can choose ‘New session’ via the folder button.

**We implemented a better AudioBus control panel**
-Brought back the play toggle.
-Added a record button. Now you can temporarily disarm recording while working on sounds in another app and then re-arm your steps without having to switch back to WerkBench. Saves you some clicks!

**We fixed some things!**
-Step editing knobs now default to sensible values and are easier to control.
-Some buttons were hard to tap.
-Got rid of a click that would happen in the envelope with long low sounds.
-Saved loops now recall their first and last step correctly.

WerkBench features:

–“Fancy Controls” (pitch, lowpass filters, highpass filters, envelopes, and more!)

–Edit the level, pitch, pan, low-pass filter, high-pass filter, envelope attack & decay, echo send, reverb send, and bit crusher effects independently for each of the 128 steps!

–All of these settings can be: performed and recorded in real-time, randomized, or programmed on the sequencer grids.

–Individual sequences can have arbitrary start and end points (they can even run backwards and be any length up to 16 steps)

–Chain sequences to build longer loops (1 – 128 steps!).

–Modeled tape echo for spacey effects with a sweet real-time visualizer, tempo sync, and free running modes.

–Reverb with fully sweep-able controls for decay, color (tone), and mix.

–Save and load loops or whole sessions of 8 patterns.

–Share loops between devices easily via airdrop, iTunes, e-mail, etc.

–Import wav files to chop up with our editor (the editor also works as a granular synthesizer!!)

–Export loops and recordings via Audio Copy, iTunes file sharing, and email.

–MIDI sync and MIDI note modes. Each of the 128 steps can be triggered on its own MIDI note.

–User-programable scales per side.

Soundfruuze Granular Manipulation App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

‘soundfruuze’ is an exprerimental live sampler / looper / granular and FFT scrub effect. It records live audio (10 seconds) and allows you to manipulate it with special controls.

The interface is divided into five “lanes”, sound is produced by touching the lanes. Each lane can be set up to use different effect and has various control parameters mapped to the touch position:

Scratch

Most basic lane type. You can control the volume of the resulting sound and smoothness of the position interpolation. Lesser smooth value produces the sound with more high frequencies.

Granular Freeze

Allows you to select the sound at some position and use both horizontal and vertical coordinates of touch as 2 independent parameters. You can control volume, playback speed (pitch) and the grain size.

Granular Scrub

This type of lane is very similar to granular freeze but it allows to change the position of the grain after its start.

FFT Freeze and FFT Scrub

In both FFT types of lanes another algorithm is used to process sound. In both FFT Freeze and Scrub sound is analyzed with the FFT transform and divided into frames. FFT Freeze allows you to select the frame at the desired sample position and to play it making the sound “freeze” at this point.

Looper

This lane type allows you to make loops / repeat large grains of sound. When you touch a looper lane, a new looper control is created and is kept there until you turn it off with the red ‘close’ button. You can change loop speed, volume, size and position for each loop individually or for all loops on one lane together using additional controls.
