Foldr Distortion Audio Unit
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

FoldR is a simple Wave Folding Audio Unit Extension by the makers of Layr. Wave Folding is an interesting distortion effect that adds harmonics to the original signal by folding the waveform back on itself when it exceeds a clipping threshold.

FoldR is great for adding spice to monophonic synth leads and rhythmic, tempo based modulations can turn drum loops into totally new entities, while long, slow, free running modulations are perfect for dirty ambient drones.

FoldR lets you set the folding thresholds and modulate the folding amount and symmetry with tempo based or free running modulators. FoldR also includes a wave shaper to add even more interest.

There is also a short built-in manual and a selection of colour themes.

Distort Delay Audio Effects For iPhone

Distort Delay Audio Effects For iPhone

Distort+Delay is a real-time audio processing application that adds high-quality distortion and delay effects to any incoming audio signal. Both acoustic and electric instruments produce excellent results. Performances can be recorded for later playback or sharing with friends. Good for Instruments and Djs!


Effect descriptions:

This app produces a wide range of effects, ranging from minor enhancement to wild modulations. The tube-style distortion effect allows for a variety of tones, from subtle warmth to heavy crunch.

An “8-bit” lo-fi crusher is also included. When active, the 8-bit lo-fi replaces the tube distortion and allows the control of both gain and phase. The result of this bit-crushing is similar to everyone’s favorite 80s-style video game console.

The delay effect works much the same as any guitar pedal: short delay-time produces a reverb-like sound; medium settings produce a slap-back echo; and larger delays create “spacey” sound textures. The included “hold” button allows for creative audio experimentation. Delay adjustments are smooth and can be heard as the familiar pitching effect usually associated with analog tape echoes.

Compression is included to help normalize microphone input. It can be toggled off for direct-input cable connections.

This application supports iPhone microphones, Apple-headphones microphones, dock-connector microphones, or guitar-to-iPhone cables.

Effects details:
– Distortion effects: classic tube and 8-bit lo-fi with tone and gain controls.
– Delay effects: 743ms maximum delay with variable feedback, and hold effect.
– Compressor: automatically normalizes microphone volumes.

Additional features:
– Capture your performances for future listening.
– E-mail your creations to your friends.
– Lossless AAC encoding is supported on iPhone 3GS+, iPod Touch 3rd Gen+, and iPad devices. Older devices will send WAV files.
