Kronecker Update Adds Microtuning!

Kronecker is a synthesizer with a mechanism to make sounds many times like a rhythm machine each time you press a keyboard. In addition to synchronizing the trigger speed to the tempo, you can gradually increase the speed or slow it down after pressing the key. This makes it possible to produce synthesizer sounds like bouncing balls and clockwork toys. Kronecker has four emitters that emit sound particles made from FM tones and noise. At the emitter you can specify at what timing the sound particles will be triggered. You can also add effects such as the pitch and tone of particles gradually changing. Particles emitted by the emitter can be processed with two resonators, and you can reproduce sounds like particles jumping on strings and pipes. Kronecker works not only on the iPad but also on the iPhone. It also supports Audio Unit Extensions (AUv3), so you can plug in to AUv3 compatible host. For each screen size, different layouts are designed to be easy to use and intuitive.

Version History 1.1.0 Jun 26, 2018

FM Player DX Synth Update
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Beautiful Free iPad instrument featuring the classic sounds of famous 80s FM Synthesizers.

AWESOME FEATURES:
• Faithful recordings of famous classic presets from original retro 80s FM Synthesizers
• Over 65+ presets included, completely free!
• Beautiful Reverb, Auto Pan, Bit Crush, Stereo Fatten, and more!
• MIDI in (Play with a MIDI Keyboard)
• Low-pass Filter: Cutoff, Rez, and Filter LFO
• Analog Tape Style Ping-Pong Delay
• Attack/Release envelopes
• GREAT for playing Live with a Keyboard: MIDI Mod Wheel, Pitch Wheel, Program Change, Velocity sensitive sounds, and Sustain Pedal support already added
• Audiobus 3 support. Use these amazing sounds w/ other apps that support AB3 audio & midi. We love Audiobus!
• Basic Inter-App Audio (IAA) integration to work with GarageBand.
• All Knobs have MIDI Learn!

NOTE: This app is intended to be a live instrument controlled with a MIDI Keyboard. The IAA integration is very basic. Thank you. The app does NOT work well with iOS DAWs like Cubasis. We are working on future apps that will work better in DAWs using AUv3.

What’s New:

V1.1.4: New warm tube-drive algorithm. The “Overdrive” knob gives you some nice crunch. Turn it up halfway, and turn on the Auto Panner for a nice “Rotary Speaker” effect. It adds character while retaining the sonic characteristics of the source tone. This is great for a nice, vintage EP drive. BTW, thanks for all the emails. We are still working on FM Player, and have many more free upgrades planned… Stay tuned! And, please tell your friends! 🙂 You can reach me directly at matthew@audiokitpro.com

Includes all the v1.1 stuff: ATTACK & RELEASE knobs. Plus, beautiful new MIDI velocity handling. Why so much attention to detail? You’re a musician who cares about sound quality. This free update gives you a dramatic increase in realism while playing with a MIDI keyboard. Please leave a good review, We’re still working on FM Player. We think you are all GREAT and we appreciate all your kind words

• We spent weeks coming up with beautiful velocity curves individually tailored to each sound. This was done with code. Meaning, we did not increase the storage space!
• Better MIDI keyboard velocity. Each preset has a unique velocity response, inspired by the original hardware.
• We found that Attack/Release controls are the most useful envelopes for a sample-based instrument like FM Player. Turn up the Release knob all the way for beautiful and floating sounds.
• We updated the GitHub source-code repo with these new Attack/Release controls. Plus, there is a new programming tutorial video on our website, audiokitpro.com
• We are all volunteers, working hard for you. We do not get paid anything. And, we make FM Player free so musicians all over the world can enjoy it!

Baervaag FM Synthesizer For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

!!!OBS!!! Current price is an intro price and 35% off !!!OBS!!!

Baervaag brings FM synthesis to the masses! An easy to use but still powerful and tweakable synthesizer, accessible to everyone. Several parameters are sensitive to velocity which makes Baervaag very expressive and fun to play.

The additional LP filter, ”Wobbler”, and a simple stereo chorus makes this synthesizer versatile and a joy to tweak.

Noteworthy features:

• AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria, AUM etc.

• 77 handcrafted presets created by professional musicians

• FM Feedback, Filter, ADSR Attack and Volume can be modulated by velocity

• Oscillators can be shaped between sine, square and PWM

• One ADSR for each oscillator.

• Controllable wobble factor that adds analogue unpredictability.

Important: Baervaag in stand-alone mode does not support IAA or MIDI. You can try it out using the keyboard at the bottom, but that’s it. We recommend using Baervaag with AUv3 compatible hosts.

iPhone 6 or later is recommended.
iPad Air 1 or later is recommended.

Frum Four Oscillator FM Drum Synthesizer For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Frum iOS FM Drum Synthesizer

Frum is a radically new FM Drum Synthesizer, incubated after many years of research and development into FM synthesis. You may imagine FM sounds to be clear and harmonic, but those are just the start of the possibilities FM has to offer. More potential is unleashed by harnessing the unlimited, free power of complex sound waves.

Traditionally, FM synths are overwhelming, with too many parameters to control the sound texture. Frum bundles many of these parameters together in the BUG button, offering entirely new textures each time the button is pressed. It’s easy to find and tweak these sounds to make drums, other percussion, fat bass, organic noises such as insect songs, environmental sounds, human screams, as well as all sorts of intriguing melodies.
