csSpectral is a real-time, Csound-based, multi-effects processor featuring a Streaming Phase Vocoder and six other FFT-based spectral algorithms. The diverse collection of real-time DSP effects let you create unique textures and timbres by transforming your voice, instrument, or iTunes library.
csSpectral also supports Audiobus, allowing you to send and receive audio from other apps, making the processing possibilities nearly endless.
Sneak peak of the new Csound-based iOS app by Boulanger Labs, csSpectral. Check out this demo of Takahiko Tsuchiya (Lead Sound Designer) playing violin and Paul Batchelor (SpectralEQ Designer) playing Upright Bass. Their instruments are being processed by Christopher Konopka (Sound/Layout Designer) using csSpectral for real-time acoustic processing and spectral mutation.
Demo from the studio featuring the sampling techniques from the new Csound-based iOS app by Boulanger Labs, csSpectral. Deepak Gopinath (Lead iOS Developer) is using csSpectral to play back a simple beat and transforms the rhythms into a unique percussion track that morphs beyond glitch. This aspect of the app is well-suited for many applications ranging from advanced sound design for film to a mashup of your favorite track.
csGrain is a real-time audio processing and recording tool that lets you create new sounds and new musical textures by transforming your voice, your instrument, or your favorite songs from your iTunes library in subtle or dramatic ways – all with the power of CSOUND. Under the hood is a stereo granular sound processor and 10 additional professional audio effects – all realized through a single Csound orchestra that is simultaneously: rendering, processing, sampling, resampling, synthesizing, resynthesizing, playing, reversing, delaying, triggering, gating, compressing, limiting, chorusing, flanging, echoing, filtering, pitch-shifting, harmonizing, granulizing, and recording – in any combination – all in real-time, and all 100% being done with the power and exquisite sound quality of CSOUND – the world’s premier software synthesizer and signal processor.

iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle).
You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Sony Creative, Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
