FAC Bandit multiband multi effects processor

FAC Bandit is a multiband audio effect that splits the audio signal into three bands of frequencies defined by adjustable crossover points. Each band is processed independently by its own effect processor and the outputs are then recombined to produce the final effect.

Each frequency range is altered with different effects and settings that won’t sound the same if applied on the full frequency range. As you have probably realized, FAC Bandit is a wonderful and powerful sound design tool for designers who want to sculpt new personal, exciting and outstanding sounds. Either in a subtle way, without compromising the original tone, or in a more drastic way.

Features:

• Multiband effect processor
• DJ style bands isolator with crossover control
• Each single band provides its own effect with mix blending control
• Comes with built-in effects: Saturator, Lofi and Ring Modulator
• Extendable, more effect coming
• Include various presets for inspiration
• Suitable for any situation, going from subtle to drastic change
• iOS Audio Unit V3

StepBud MIDI Sequencer AU

AU midi sequencer app

StepBud is a MIDI Sequencer with Audio Unit AUv3 plugin, Audiobus and Ableton Link.

Add an unlimited number of steps to your sequencer.
Your steps appear with a LED and a fader on top of your screen.
You can change the active mode that your step faders displaying/controlling.
– Set the current note or chord in range of the scale and key you selected with respect the range of the octave you want to focus,
– Set the velocity, rate, gate time, modulation, pitch bend, portamento for each step,
– Try increasing the rate and repeat count your steps if you want to add more flavor.

Below the step faders, you have a master fader where you can control your entire sequencer. It has two modes which you can change from the settings strip on the bottom of the app.
– In copy mode, it assigns its value to each step.
– In shift mode, it shifts up or down each step.

If you want to go off-scale or try some crazy chords on some of your steps, or maybe on all of them, you can go to the Step Editor by double tapping the LED of the step you want to edit.

In StepBud’s powerful Step Editor, you can set your step’s notes either from the virtual keyboard or your connected MIDI keyboard. Don’t forget to enable MIDI in port of your MIDI keyboard or the you want to receive MIDI from the settings menu. You may also preview the selected notes by pressing the preview button in Step Editor for making sure you created the perfect sound for your particular step.

You can also toggle the steps you want to disable by tapping its LED.
If you long-press the LED, you can access a menu where you may copy/paste the steps around, remove them or edit them.

If you enable the lock mode from the settings strip on the bottom of the app, you may adjust each visible step fader on the screen by a single swipe gesture without having to lift your finger up.

Try to change your arppegio mode from the settings strip. You can sequence your steps up, down, up-down or random order.

StepBud is a MIDI sequencer app and it does not generate sounds itself. You need to route its MIDI out port in the settings menu to the audio app you want to sequence.

Please note that you need to have an iOS 11+ device and an Audio Unit host application such as AUM, apeMatrix, Cubasis, BeatMaker or Audiobus in order to use the StepBud as an Audio Unit plugin. And don’t forget to route StepBud’s MIDI out to the app or audio unit you want to sequence.

StepBud’s MIDI layer powered by free and open-source project AudioKit

Bleass Reverb with Filter and Ducker

The BLEASS reverb is a unique sounding plugin effect bringing your music production and live performances towards new soundscapes!

The BLEASS reverb is composed of 3 different stages:

1/ A first stage modifies the input source by correcting the gain and setting up early reflections pre-delay in order to re-create distant walls.
This first stage also contains a filter to modify frequencies. Switch between two different filter types:
– the Low-Shelf filter can reduce or boost your basses.
– the High-Pass filter cuts the low part of the signal and creates a resonant peak on interesting frequencies.

2/ The second stage offers a unique-sounding reverb with size modulation and length controls. It also contains a high frequency damping control in order to re-create plate reverb effects, as well as a freeze toggle button for infinite sound soaring and exploration.
This reverb offers also an X/Y panel which applies a set of fine-tuned frequency shifter as well as a wave shaper in order to mutate your reverb space on the go!

3/ The third stage offers a duck effect made of a compressor side-chained on the dry input in order to bring clarity to heavy kicks and basses

Finally, a dry-wet controller offers control over the reverb level.

All these features are shown within the factory presets, and you can save your own presets which will automatically carry over across different host apps.
All variables are exposed as AU parameters in hosts which support automation.
BLEASS reverb can also be used as a standalone app using headphones and mic or an external sound card.
