Ruismaker FM

Following up on the success of Ruismaker, here’s her crazy twin-sister, designed for people who want to design their own percussion sounds from scratch.

Ruismaker FM’s flexible synthesis engine lets you create anything from snaredrums, kickdrums and spacy toms to weird and unconventional percussive sounds and effects.

Works conveniently inside your sequencer and Audio Unit Instrument hosts so you can focus on making electronic music without app switching and screen juggling like before.

*IMPORTANT* Audio Units are plug-ins that need a compatible host app to work. Ruismaker FM has been tested to work beautifully with Steinberg Cubasis, Apple Garageband, Modstep and AUM.

Ruismaker FM

– Audio Unit Instrument (AUv3): making music on iOS doesn’t get more convenient
– Use Ruismaker FM’s flexible FM synth engine to create thousands of sounds
– Comes with loads of factory preset sounds as examples
– Does not use any samples; all sounds are synthesized in realtime, on the fly
– Light on the CPU, so you can run lots of instances simultaneously
– Has an extra compact 4″ UI mode; especially for iPhone SE and iPhone 5S
– Fully automatable parameters (requires host support)
– Fully MIDI controllable using MIDI CC
– Download the advanced guide on ruismaker.com for more details about parameter automation, available instruments and MIDI implementation

iOS Audio Units are supported on iPads (iPad 4, iPad Mini 2 and up) and iPhones (iPhone 5S and up) with iOS 9 and higher.

iSEM Oberheim SEM iPad

iSEM is a recreation of the classic 1974 Oberheim SEM (Synthesizer Expander Module), one of the world’s first self-contained synthesizer modules and the first to bear the “Oberheim Electronics” name. Based on the TAE® technology found in our Oberheim SEM V software, iSEM brings back the sound and special characteristics of this iconic synth in an sonically accurate and expanded touch-based emulation.

This extremely popular synthesizer by Arturia is now an AudioUnit plug in. iSEM is compatible with iPad 2 and later, iPad with Retina Display and iPad mini.
Apple’s Inter-App Audio connectivity, AudioBus, Korg’s WIST and Apple’s CoreMIDI are all supported.

**CURRENTLY HALF PRICE FOR A LIMITED TIME

The iSEM is a powerful instrument capable of producing a wide range of warm analog sounds. Reproducing the unique SEM architecture, with its oscillator sync, characteristic filter shape and specific envelope response, the iSEM is able to generate the fat basses that have made the Oberheim brand so popular. Thanks to its simple and clever PW and pitch modulations, it is also very easy to produce moving and lively leads.

Its remarkable 12 dB/oct multimode filter is a real blast from the past, becoming an awesome weapon in the context of current electronic music. This unique module can instantly tailor your sound to fat, crisp, or spectral textures with access to all the nuances in between…

iSEM comes with over 500 sounds that you can browse through and play. You can also easily create your own sounds with the easy to use interface.

Play iSEM’s numerous sounds from the iPad keyboard or control iSEM from a MIDI keyboard or other app via CoreMIDI and integrate it into your studio or live performance.

If you are an owner of of the Arturia SEM V software on your Mac or PC, you can even import and export sounds between your laptop or desktop SEM V and iSEM.
