Tutorial: Relaxation App Combo
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

I recently went to NAB in Vegas and my hotel was right off of Fremont street (downtown old Vegas). It was so noisy until about 3:30 am and I just could not sleep so I decided to have a bit of fun and create my own white noise ambient relaxation app combo. Ear plugs just didn’t work it was that bad. The white noise was inspired by my little 7 month old daughter we use white noise with her when she sleeps to drown out all the other noises like creaky floors helicopters, and police sirens (big city noises in Los Angeles). I thought to myself hey how can I create a fun white noise project in AUM on my iPad. I threw in a nice ambient melody generator for an additional relaxation element. The result, my “dream machine”. The following video shows you how you can make your very own “dream machine” hehehe

AUM as a host https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/aum-audio-mixer/id1055636344?mt=8&at=10laUK

Bram Bos Kosmonaut Multi Tap Delay
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

*** Note: this is an Audio Unit Effect Plugin (AUv3) which requires a compatible host or DAW to work. ***

Kosmonaut is Multitap Delay with a twist. In addition to adding echoes to your audio, it packs a bunch of extra tools to put your music in space:

– Tape looper with with variable sound-on-sound decay level
– 4-Tap Delay (placed in series for complex feedback loops)
– LP/HP filters with LFO
– Autopanner
– Ambiance Generator
– Haas Effect Processor (aka ‘wavefront precedence effect’)

All features are demonstrated extensively in a ton of factory presets, and you can easily add your own user presets, which will automatically carry over across different host apps.

All variables are exposed as AU Parameters in hosts which support automation.

It also has a smart Random-feature, which may come up with usable results 🙂

Rozeta Collider Audio Unit
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Rozeta is a suite of MIDI sequencers and controllers that lets you explore a new, freeform approach to sequencing and controlling mobile music apps.

The app contains 9 MIDI Audio Units (a totally new feature in iOS11) in a single package, which can be loaded in compatible MIDI AU hosts (Kymatica AUM, Beatmaker 3, Sequencism).

What’s New in Version 1.0.6
To celebrate the New Year, I’m introducing: Rozeta Collider – MIDI Hadron Collider
This plugin is useful for exploring semi-repeating generative phrases and patterns. Compared to Rozeta Particles, the Collider plugin will sound less random and more predictable, while still mutating and surprising due to its colliding MIDI Hadrons.

Other changes in this update:
– Rozeta X0X now supports accents
– Bassline, Rhythm and X0X now reset to the first pattern when rewinding in stopped mode
– Slightly improved timing accuracy in all plugins
– Added more scales
– Added more drum keymap templates
– Lots of minor fixes and improvements

1) Rozeta Bassline: a monosequencer based on the popular Troublemaker sequencer. Obviously comes with all the randomization and mutation features. Up to 8 patterns per sequence, with Follow Actions. Transpose using MIDI.

2) Rozeta Rhythm: a euclidean drum sequencer with mutations per instrument and polyrhythms. Comes with configurable key mappings for many popular drum apps.

3) Rozeta X0X: classic TR-styles step sequencer for drum machines. Supports triplets, polyrhythms and mutations per channel. Optionally emulates the exact timing jitter pattern of the legendary TR-808

4) Rozeta LFO: a triple MIDI LFO generator lets you modulate CC parameters of your MIDI instruments. Apply amplitude modulation to each wave for more organic behavior. Optionally syncs to tempo.

5) Rozeta XY: a double XY Controller Pad for generating 4 simultaneous configurable CC controller streams per instance. Also features MOD wheel and PitchBend sliders.

6) Rozeta Arpeggio: adds a MIDI arpeggiator to any of your synths. Offers latch mode, shuffle and automatic tempo synchronization. Turn any incoming MIDI stream into an arpeggio on the fly.

7) Rozeta Particles: MIDI particle generator – generates a cloud of MIDI notes that create pseudo-random patterns when bounding off the walls.

8) Rozeta Cells: Polyphonic Step Recorder – record and play back polyphonic phrases and patterns.

9) Rozeta Collider (NEW): MIDI Hadron Collider – explore semi-repeating generative patterns and melodies.

Notes:
– these plugins do not run as a standalone app and require a compatible host to work
– MIDI is not sound. To make sound you’ll have to feed the MIDI into a synthesizer or instrument app. Bring your own synths!

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)
