Bark Filter Multi Band Filter / Compressor
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

The multi band filter in Bark takes the approach to match the reception characteristic of the gate where all sounds must pass through: the human ear. The ear behaves as if it contains a bank of filters, each filter passing frequencies within their respective critical band. Two tones apart more than the frequency dependant critical bandwidth are perceived as separate tones. For this reason Bark contains a filter bank with 27 very steep bandpass filters matching the critical bandwidth characteristic of the human ear. In fact, the human ear have also its own built in multi band compression system which are based on the critical bands.

Why the name Bark ? The Bark scale is a frequency scale on which equal distances correspond with perceptually equal distances. Above about 500 Hz this scale is more or less equal to a logarithmic frequency axis. Below 500 Hz the Bark scale becomes more and more linear.

Multiband compressors can act differently on different frequency bands. The advantage of multiband compression over full-bandwidth compression is that unneeded audible gain changes or “pumping” in other frequency bands is not caused by changing signal levels in a single frequency band. Bark can act both as single band compressor and with up to 27 bands in multiband mode by linking critical bands.

The linear phase filter bank with its steep filter slopes can be used for unusually pronounced filter effects too…

Midiflow For Audiobus 3 Midi Filter
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Get the full package of MIDI sender and effect apps for Audiobus 3. Modify MIDI data coming from other apps or external MIDI devices to create interesting effects and take your performances to a new level.

+ Play multiple synth apps at the same time
+ Control effects with the motion of the device
+ Split your keyboard to play multiple sounds
+ Filter and remap note velocities
+ Remap notes to a scale or eliminate wrong notes
+ Randomize notes and timing
+ Transpose notes (*)
+ Monitor MIDI data (*)

(*) Make sure to get the free apps ‘Midiflow Transposer’ and ‘Midiflow Monitor’ to make your set complete.

NOTE: These apps require Audiobus 3.

MIDIFLOW KEYBOARD allows you to perform music with multiple synth apps at the same time. Use the piano or scale layout to play single notes, and select the chord keyboard for accompaniments.

MIDIFLOW MOTION lets you control effect parameters of other apps – in a way that no touch screen can replace – by moving the device. Set any kind of MIDI command like volume or modulation as output and fine-tune it to the exact motion range you want to perform with. You can even control multiple effects simultaneously.

MIDIFLOW SPLITTER lets you create split and layer configurations in an easy but powerful way. If you play your synth apps with an external keyboard, it is an essential tool for you. Thanks to Audiobus State Saving, everything can be saved and recalled when your show is about to start.

MIDIFLOW LIMITER is a filter and remapper for note velocities. Filter out notes that are too loud or too quiet, or remap them to different values. Use multiple instances to create velocity layers, which trigger different sounds based on the notes’ velocity.

MIDIFLOW SCALES lets you filter out unwanted notes or remap them to a scale. Thin out tracks from a sequencer to create a reduced variation. Prevent wrong notes when playing on a keyboard. Generate harmonies by using the app in combination with Midiflow Transposer.

MIDIFLOW RANDOMIZER can be used to add a human touch to note sequences or to find inspiration. Randomize notes, note velocities, and timing just by specifying a desired range of variations. With the help of Midiflow Scales, you can keep your randomized notes in harmony.

MIDIFLOW TRANSPOSER lets you shift notes by octaves and half-tones. This is useful if you want play an external keyboard in a different tone. You can also use it to create harmonies, i.e. create a second voice in an interval.

MIDIFLOW MONITOR shows you what MIDI is doing in your Audiobus setup. Just add it into one or more MIDI effect ports and the app will print what is going through. This can help you find problems or just understand how MIDI works.

Kuvert Envelope Shaper App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Kuvert Envelope

Klevgränd Produktion AB has done it again, another awesome app is among us. Kuvert allows you to draw five different envelopes. These envelopes control different effect parameters, and can be drawn freely or onto a grid. The envelopes are looped, while the incoming audio isn’t (unless you’re feeding it looped material of course). This is a powerful & fun way of altering your sounds to a whole new level, sometimes not even recognizable! Thanks to the looping nature of the plug-in, it will fit very well into any musical context. One way of using it would be to revitalize any looped material within a few seconds.

Noteworthy features:

• Volume envelope
• Low cut filter envelope (with resonance)
• High cut filter envelope (with resonance)
• “Glitch” envelope (alters timing)
• Delay send envelope (with tempo synchronised time, filter and feedback
• IAA (With tempo sync if host sends it)
• MIDI clock sync
• Load / Save presets
• Audiobus
• Documentation (on the product web page)

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 Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements.
