K7D Tape Delay Effect For iOS

K7D is a powerful and affordable, vintage tape delay effect plugin for iOS. K7D recreates the hardware echo machines of the past using Imaginando’s signature style of obsessive analog emulation, but with an enhanced level of control from a sleek, modern interface. Using this approach allows a whole new world of creative possibilities, while still retaining a warm, full-bodied analog sound, bursting with character and personality.

To give K7D it’s distinctive analog flavour, we studied and analysed the tiny details of what makes classic hardware delays great, and painstakingly recreated every subtle nuance for a fantastically authentic sound.

Available as a standalone app and audio unit plugin, you can use it digital audio stations for iOS such as Garage Band, AUM, Cubasis, Auria, Audiobus, etc.

Features

– 1ms to 1 sec. dual playhead analog modeled delay with noise, tape distortion and mechanical vibration models
– Modeled microphone input with pre-amp saturation
– Normal and Ping Pong modes
– Optimized gain staging and saturation algorithms for very musical results
– Delay time spread between heads and stereo width control
– High pass and Low pass filter on feedback path
– Powerful LFO bipolar time modulation with multiple waveforms (sine, triangular, saw, square, sample and hold and filtered sample and hold) and possibility of inverted LFO phase on second play head (for added stereo imaging)
– Delay time syncable with BPM
– Possibility of delay time modulation via incoming midi notes
– Oscilloscope visualisation of audio waveform and LFO waveform
– Built-in patch manager
– Audiounit compatible

Kymatica AUM Update!
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Kymatica just updated AUM – Audio Mixer with a whole bunch of MIDI improvements! There is a new MIDI channel strip to hold MIDI-only AUv3 plugins. There are a lot of features in AUM that can now be controlled via MIDI. The update also includes Ableton Link 3 start/stop support.

MAJOR NEW FEATURES

• Finally, updated to Ableton Link 3 with start/stop support!
• Add new “MIDI strip” channel type to hold MIDI-only AU plugins.
• Allow importing channels from another session. (Tap IMPORT add-button, or long-press a session file and choose ‘Import channels’)
• Allow easy duplication of channel strip.
• Allow loading sessions via MIDI actions. Its configuration is saved globally instead of in the session.
• Add MIDI program change as recognized MIDI control messages.
• Add MIDI ctrl for tap tempo.
• Add MIDI action ‘Show Plugin’ for AUv3 nodes.
• Add MIDI actions for AUv3 preset-loading.
• Avoid stuck notes when bypassing/disconnecting MIDI sources or changing MIDI destination filter/transpose
• Show AU contextName (if set) in plugin title and as node icon subtitle, long-press AU plugin title bar to edit.

IMPROVEMENTS

• Re-apply preferred samplerate on audio interface route change.
• Remember preferred sample rate on app launch.
• Save preferred instead of current sample rate in session.
• Bring keyboard to front if currently behind the plugin window when tapping plugin window keyboard button.
• Send error string to Audiobus if preset load failed.
• MIDI matrix: highlight source and dest on touch-down.
• Support upside-down portrait on iPhone.
• Improve display of long names in MIDI control table.
• MIDI learn consistency: always ignore the message that triggered the learn.
• Tweak node param-knob and menu button layout for consistency.
• Only update latency compensation on node-bypass if the node has latency.
• Save project: save when tapping Return on keyboard.
• Various minor UI and layout tweaks.
• Keep connections to MIDI Control from permanent MIDI sources on load/new session.
• Minor optimizations for MIDI Control.

BUGFIXES

• AUv3 Transpose: ignore extra bytes in note messages (hello Thesys).
• Clear MIDI matrix when loading session so it isn’t keeping connections from previous session.
• Don’t crash when trying to MIDI-control parameters of a crashed AU plugin.
• NodePicker: avoid keyboard on iPhone.
• NodePicker: fix memory leak if dismissed while in search mode.
• NodePicker: hide ‘remove slot’ button while searching.
• NodePicker: hide search if collection empty.
• Make sure we don’t free MIDI sources/destinations too early. Hopefully avoids rare crash…
• Improve MIDI safety when AU plugin was invalidated (crashed).
• Update MIDI matrix correctly if visible while loading session.

Free Stereo Widener AU
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , ,

Free Stereo Widener App

This is an audio unit plugin that puts a small delay between the left and right channels.

Why would you want to do that? Here’s why:

We recently saw a video interview of a very famous guitarist in which his guitar was delayed a few milliseconds in the right channel. It may have been caused by unusual microphone placement, or perhaps it was just an error on the part of the person who recorded the video. Whatever the reason for it, it sounded great. He was playing into a vintage amp with no other reverb or delay, but the sound had a wide stereo image that didn’t sound electronic or artificial and didn’t distort the natural sound of the amp.

With most delay effects it’s not so easy to get a precise, very small delay on just one channel, but this app does it with just one simple control.

In case you need to modulate the effect, this plugin smoothly transitions between different delay time settings, causing a pitch shift while the delay time is on the move toward its new setting.

This plugin is simple, so we are giving it away for free. Enjoy!
