Bram Bos WOOTT Logo

WOOTT is an Audio Unit plugin (AUv3 audio effect) inspired by the infamous OTT sound.

WOOTT uses a triple band dynamics algorithm with simultaneous downwards AND upwards compression, and adds a dedicated limiter to each band. So what’s all that techno mumbojumbo good for?

1. First, it slams all the loud, dominant aspects of your sound
2. Next it blows up all the subtle quiet bits that were hiding below

As a result, it’s perfect for:

– Blowing up average sounds to massive proportions
– Giving an aggressive sharp edge to synthesizer filters
– Bringing out subtle details and movement that would otherwise get lost in the mix (in a hamfisted way, though)
– Dusting off old breakbeat samples and loops
– Hyping specific aspects of your synth lines
– Making generally boring things more interesting

WOOTT features:

– AUv3 audio unit effect plugin
– Universal (all iPads and iPhones supported), iOS11+
– Runs in all your favorite plugin hosts: Cubasis, AUM, Beatmaker 3, Nanostudio 2, Garageband, etc.
– Multi-output (requires compatible host) for post-processing the individual bands
– Low-resource, so stack as many of them as you like – “[WO]OTT all the things!”
– Downwards *and* upwards compressors (a rare feature on conventional dynamics plugins)
– Smart soft limiter per band, adapts to its own band’s specific settings

Note: this is not a subtle effect. If subtle and minimal are what you’re after, this is not the droid you’re looking for 🙂

Scatterbrain Audio Splitter
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Audio splitter effect for iOS

Scatterbrain is a plugin audio effect (AUv3, Audio Unit), which chops up incoming audio into rhythmical steps and sends these slices out to multiple outputs in your plugin host.

You can sequence how the steps are scattered over the (maximum 4) different outputs, or leave that up to chance.

Scatterbrain records the incoming audio onto a hidden internal tapeloop. Using the buffer effects you can specify the probability of randomly triggering slicer or stutter effects for an extra seasoning of chaos and mayhem.

Note: to use the multi-out effect, this AUv3 plugin requires an AU host which supports multiple outputs. If the host does not support multi-out, only the first channel will work.

Also note that due to the multi-out nature of the plugin there is no meaningful standalone functionality. You will need a plugin host to make use of this plugin.

Bram Bos Mononoke App

Mononoke is an unconventional synthesizer, designed to compose evolving soundscapes and musical textures.

Feedback routing

What sets Mononoke apart from other synths is that its voices (4 in each section) can be routed back into each other in multiple ways, creating all sorts of overtones and pulsating resonant frequencies. Sometimes harmonic, sometimes weirdly atonal. Sometimes clear and delicate as icicles, sometimes harsh as metallic blades, sometimes soft as fresh snow. This interaction between voices helps fuse all layers together into a coherent musical landscape.

A tale of two engines

The synthesizer engines (each of the two sections has its own independent engine) have relatively simple controls, which influence a complex system of many invisible, interconnected LFOs. But this is not your bread-and-butter general purpose synthesizer: think of Mononoke as one huge FM synthesizer where each voice is an independently playable operator. Together all operators contribute to a single soundscape.

Expressive pads

Complex soundscapes can be created live, using the 8 performance pads which let you modulate each voice independently in several dimensions. Your interactions with the pads will also be sent out as MPE/MIDI (when loaded as an AU plugin in a compatible host) so you can record and tweak your session. The onscreen pads can be latched individually so some voices can be used as drones, while others as can be added and removed as extra sonic layers. The pads are fully integrated in the Audio Unit plugin.

Connectivity

Mononoke is designed as an AUv3 plugin, with advanced Audio Unit features such as MPE input and output (!), a fully exposed array of AU parameters for automation and all the connectivity and scalability you can expect from modern plugins.

The standalone mode is basic (just meant for jamming and creating presets) and does not offer any connectivity, so if you want to use Mononoke in conjunction with other apps and effects you’ll need to load it into a host, such as Garageband, Audiobus, AUM or Cubasis.

Summary:

– Audio Unit (AUv3) plugin

– 8 voice polyphony, 2 independent engines with 4 voices each

– Compatible with MPE (MIDI Polyphonic Expression) and MIDI

– MIDI Input and Output (only available when used as an Audio Unit plugin)

– Limited standalone mode for jamming (full screen, no connectivity)

– 8 independently tunable performance pads for expressive interaction

– Universal, fully scalable to any screen size, supports fullscreen mode in AU hosts

– Freely tunable voices, or quantized to semitones (with overall finetuning)

– iOS10 (MIDI/MPE output from the plugin requires iOS11) or higher

Also contains Mononoke Pads: an extra AUv3 MIDI controller plugin for playing MPE compatible synths using Mononoke’s pads. Note: this is a separate plugin which will be installed in your MIDI Plugin collection. Mononoke Pads requires iOS 11.

Mozaic MIDI Creator

MIDI script app creator

Create your own MIDI plugins: MIDI filters, generative music tools, basic sequencers, MIDI control panels, chaos experiments… Let your imagination take you places.

Mozaic runs inside your favorite AU MIDI host, and gives you practical building blocks such as LFOs, pre-fab GUI layouts, musical scales, AUv3 support (with AU Parameters, transport events, tempo syncing, etc.), random generators and a super-simple yet powerful script language. Mozaic even offers quick access to your device’s Tilt Sensors for expressive interaction concepts!

The Mozaic Script language is designed from the ground up to be the easiest and most flexible MIDI language on iOS. A language by creatives, for creatives. You’ll only need to write a few lines of script to achieve impressive things – or to create that uber-specific thing that was missing from your MIDI setup.

Check out the Programming Manual on Ruismaker.com to learn about the script language and to get inspiration for awesome scripts of your own.

Mozaic comes with a sizable collection of tutorials and pre-made scripts which you can use out of the box, or which can be a starting point for your own plugin adventures.

Check out this cool example of a custom app designed in Mozaic:

Download Chordulator for free (requires Mozaic) https://patchstorage.com/the-chordulator/

Features in a nutshell:

– Easy to learn Mozaic Script language: easy to learn, easy to read

– Sample-accurate-everything: the tightest MIDI timing possible

– Built-in script editor with code-completion, syntax hints, etc.

– 5 immediately usable GUI layouts, with knobs, sliders, pads, etc.

– In-depth, helpful programming manual available on Ruismaker.com

– Easy access to LFOs, scales, MIDI I/O, AU parameters, timers

– AUv3; so you’ll get multi-instance, state-saving, tempo sync and resource efficiency out of the box

Mozaic opens up the world of creative MIDI plugins to anyone willing to put in a few hours and a hot beverage or two.

Practical notes:

– Mozaic requires a plugin host with support for AUv3 MIDI plugins (AUM, ApeMatrix, Cubasis, Auria, Audiobus 3, etc.)

– The standalone mode of Mozaic lets you edit, test and export projects, but for MIDI connections you need to run it inside an AUv3 MIDI host

– MIDI is not sound; Mozaic on its own does not make noise… so bring your own synths, drum machines and other instruments!

– AUv3 MIDI requires iOS11 or higher

Ruismaker Noir

Ruismaker Noir is almost available to the public. Bram Bos is currently coding away but gives us a rough ETA of 1 week give or take a few days!!

Woot I was lucky enough to get a quick testflight sneak peak and I’m loving this app so much thanks. Here is a quick screen capture of an idea I started within minutes after downloading this app.

Just a quick screen record. Just used the free Roli Noise for additional high hats and percussion.
