Ruismaker FM Ver 2 With Sequencer
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Here comes the the crazy twin-sister of Ruismaker, designed for people who want to design their own percussion sounds from scratch. Ruismaker FM’s simple, yet flexible synthesis engine lets you create anything from snaredrums, kickdrums and spacy toms to weird and unconventional percussive sounds and effects. Ruismaker FM is a unique drumsynth plugin (i.e. it does not use samples), which is coupled with a creative Euclidean sequencer when run in standalone mode.

What’s New in Version 2.0
Completely overhauled the app:
– added a cool standalone Euclidean sequencer mode (with Ableton Link, MIDI Clock, WAV export etc.)
– upgraded the synth engine
– added a preset manager to the AU plugin
– many more little touches and improvements!

The plugin is fully AUv3 (Audio Unit Extension) compatible:
– Audio Unit Instrument: making music on iOS doesn’t get more convenient
– Each sound is modeled using authentic analog and FM algorithms;
– Comes with dozens of unique customizable models
– Does not use any samples; all sounds are synthesized in realtime, on the fly
– Light on the CPU, so you can run lots of Ruismaker FMs simultaneously
– Fully automatable parameters (requires host support) and MIDI CC controllable
– Has its own preset manager

The standalone sequencer is refreshingly different:
– Program patterns using Euclidean algorithms
– Powerful random feature and mutation probability settings per channel
– Syncs with Ableton Link or MIDI Clock
– Exports WAV and MIDI
– Compatible with Audiobus 3 (including MIDI IN/OUT mode)

Ripplemaker Modular Synth For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Bram Bos tease use with another video for their newly designed modular synthesizer “Ripplemaker”. Bram Bos brought us Ruismaker analog drums, Ruismaker FM drums, Phasemaker, and Troublemaker synth for iOS. They are now working diligently on a new synthesizer with modular patching capabilities and a built in sequencer. The original Ruismaker started its existence as a hardware drum machine, but is now available as an Audio Unit Instrument for mobile DAWs and sequencers. And the family is growing steadily.

Bram Bos’ Ruismaker plugins are about authenticity: everything you hear is synthesized in real-time by emulating classic electronic circuitry – giving your music that little bit more soul, and offering lots of useful control over the sound of your music without complicating your workflow.

The following videos demonstrate their new synth Ripplemaker. Release date TBA

Ripplemaker is a modular “West-Coast synthesis” playground, inspired by synths such as the 0-Coast, Phenol and the Kastle. Following the experimental synthesis philosophy of people like Buchla and Serge, west-coast synthesis offers a very different approach from the traditional subtractive methods of Moog synths. It’s much more about experimenting with additive timbres (hence the absence of a conventional filter) and the manipulation of CV signals. This video shows a typical generative patch concept called “Krell” (inspired by the soundtrack of the movie “Forbidden Planet” ‘composed’ by Louis Barron). It’s self-generating, so no sequencers or triggers are used here. But obviously Ripplemaker will be fully AUv3 compatible so you can do slightly more conventional/musical patches with it 😉

Bram Bos Troublemaker Review Tutorial
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Acid Techno is easy with Troublemaker by Bram Bos. A TB-303 inspired audio unit synthesizer with step sequencer. In this video I will 1) Show you how to create a pattern in Troublemaker and export the midi into Cubasis 2) Use Troublemaker in Cubasis as an audio unit 3) Run Troublemaker through Squashit multi band distortion. I hope you enjoy it! PS – 600 subscribers!! Thank you for the support over the years.

Note: Troublemaker requires iPad 4/Mini 2/iPhone 5S/iPod Touch 6 or higher

Introducing Troublemaker: this is not a 303

The legendary TB-303 has magical properties; it is filled to the brim with analog shimmer. Its output jack is a gateway to a parallel universe and when you twiddle the filter knobs an army of highly trained pixies chisel the square waves from freshly harvested unicorn souls. So if you want a TB-303, you should buy a TB-303. But if you’re after *that sound* Troublemaker will give you everything you need in spades.

Troublemaker sports a carefully crafted diode filter emulation and among the available oscillators are the typical raspy, nasal sawtooth and rubbery squarewave with its oddball shape and shifting pulsewidth.

It also has the wow.

Troublemaker is fully Audio Unit (AUv3) compatible, so you can go wild running multiple instances in your favorite DAWs.

It also has:
– Ableton Link synchronization,
– MIDI CC mapping,
– Core Midi, Virtual Midi, Bluetooth Midi input,
– Audiobus support
– Exports MID and WAV files from the standalone sequencer

And unlike the TB-303, it can actually sound like a bass guitar 😉
