Fieldscaper

FieldScaper – Sound warp field recorder and scape constructor.

Igor Vasiliev maker of the amazing SoundScaper app has just announced a new app called FieldScaper a sound manipulation and experimentation app for altering field recordings on the fly.

Advanced field recorder combined with sound warp engine with a collection of ready to use dynamic presets for iPad and iPhone. Discover new ways to create and construct unusual and exciting sounds from any environmental audio recordings or samples recorded from other apps through Inter-App audio or Audiobus.

The main purpose of this advanced app is to shorten the way from recording samples to create spectacular soundscapes and in addition to use this app as glitch loop based effect in the real-time.

The FieldScaper consists of two main parts. The first part is the field recorder with special options for different ways of record environmental sound from microphone or record other sound sources. The second part is the scaper sound engine that with using dynamic presets can easily transform the most ordinary samples into something absolutely different. These parts connect with each other into one whole but you can use recorder or scaper separately.

The scaper sound engine contains three sample-based oscillators each with filters, delay, distortion and spatial mixer. The most of parameters can be assigned on individual low-frequency oscillators. With using the “Main effect” fader you can control several these parameters in different ranges. These features give you the abilty to create continuously changing, breaking and glitching sound forms and loop-based effects from ordinary samples of synths, guitars, voices or everyday sounds of the environment.

FieldScaper supports complete MIDI control for all faders, knobs and many buttons. You can change the parameters of oscillators, filters, delays and mixer by using any external MIDI controller or MIDI apps like sequencers. With the MIDI controllers this app becomes very comfortable to use at live performance.

SoundScaper Experimental Sound Design For iPad

SoundScraper experimental sound design app

The iPad Loops music app blog is proud to share news about SoundScaper by Igor Vasiliev

SoundScaper is an experimental sound mini lab for creating unusual soundscapes, atmospheric textures, drones, glitches and noises based on circuit bending ideas.

It manages to make some deep and complex DSP processing available to virtually anyone. I’m well impressed by both the concept and execution here. Immensely powerful, deep, and most importantly: musical – useful for sound design and composition. The diversity of textures and tones that are possible… very inspiring.

With this application you can easily experiment with creating new and unusual sounds from ordinary samples. For sound designers and those interested in creating ambient or experimental electronic music, with filtering and mixing of up to three oscillators, you can create excellent soundscapes, textures and drones for your music or for movie soundtrack or entertainment apps and games. With complete MIDI control this application is very comfortable to use for real-time sound creation and at live performance.

The oscillators, based on simulating schematics of actual 8 bit lofi sound playback chips, have circuit bending like controls that are ideal for making glitches, noises, crackles and granular sounds. Combined with the filtering and spatial mixing options, you can expand these sounds to deep and atmospheric textures. Finally you can add motion and continuous changes to your sounds via low frequency oscillators which can control the filter and mixer parameters.

Controls based on shorting and modifications of standard circuits of sound generating devices usually give random and unpredictable changes that can be very creative. The emulation of these kinds of controls within SoundScaper are very similar to the circuit bending principle but, additionally, have several advanced functions that are not easy to realize in actual devices. This allows you to make any changes in the virtual circuit on the fly and immediately hear the new sound without fear of the kinds of damage that might occur in a real device as a result of a failed modification.

Audio Mastering App For iPad

One year of Audio Mastering for iPad – A year ago the first version of Audio Mastering for iPad was released and to celebrate you get 50% off all apps by Igor Vasiliev !!

Although the first version had only the basic set of sound processing tools this was the first application for iPad that gives everyone the possibility to bring their final mixes to the next level.

The first Audio Mastering had four sections of audio processing – Ten-band graphic equallizer, Harmonic saturator, Three-band stereo imaging and Loudness maximizer (based on break-wall limiter). All controls were placed on the same panel. Three other panels contain File manager, Waveform view and Settings.

But already from the first version in the application have been implemented its main features – unique sounding, high quality audio processing algorithms and precise control of all processing parameters, things are essential for any mastering.

Even using a basic set of processing tools you could make your mixes brighter and more intense just by listening to them and slightly changing the parameters. This is a simple and easy way to make the sound better. The basic mode also available in the latest version.
