KRFT Now With MIDI Out
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

KRFT is a modular instrument for expressive music production that we built to challenge the two decade old paradigm of the multi-track DAW.

Designed from the ground up with a focus on live experimentation and expressive interactions, KRFT will inspire you to make music that would normally be out of reach.

Rather than being confined to a fixed interface KRFT lets you create a surface that suits your musical needs whether you’re building an experimental groove box or composing an entire track.

Soniface is great for creating ambient music. Combine synth sounds, visual patterns & drum rhythms. Get on a sensual journey…

EXPLORATION & EXPRESSION
With Mazetools Soniface you can create various styles of electronic music. Based on common aspects of music production and notation the app guides you towards a visual music composition.

HOW THE GRID WORKS?
The framework of action is a grid that works audiovisual. Each line represents a single note. Shining lines are showing playing tones. Get information about all functions through an integrated manual.

X-Y CONTROLLERS & MULTI-TOUCH
Explore the circular editing interface with its sound and visual effects. Use of multi-touch gestures for altering them.

DYNAMIC SOUND MODULATION
Merge sound and geometric shapes! Draw freely with your finger circuits to modulate the sound wave. Do the same to create automation curves and let the sound effects vary.

RHYTHMICAL MELODIES
Explore the arpeggiator interface and let the grid play a sequence of notes automatically.

GROOVE DRUM SEQUENCER
Tap the drum steps into 3 circles to set bass drums, snares and hi-hats. Adjust each envelope, pitch and noise level and automate them afterwards.

LIVE MODE & SPECIAL VISUALS
Create different patterns to create songs. Add a special kaleidoscope visual to highlight a pattern.

FILE LIBRARY
You can store your creations in different ways. Collect single Mazes or whole sets and add them immediately. Add one set into another and extend your playing time.

Echo Pitch Audio Effect With Audiobus
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Echo Pitch pitch-shifting multi-delay for iPhone. Echo Pitch has 4 delays where each delayed signal can be pitched one octave up or down in 1/2 steps, and can function as a 4 voice harmonizer. Echo Pitch also has a built-in looper, amp simulator and reverb. Each of the four delays can be routed into the other for incredible, swirling, ambient washes and otherworldly sounds.

What’s New in Version 1.2
-status bar is now hidden for better appearance, particularly when using Audiobus
Thanks everyone for all the positive feedback and feature requests.
We’ll keep the updates coming!

Echo Pitch works best with an iOS audio interface, such as the Fender Slide or iRig. Echo Pitch is also Audiobus and Inter-App Audio compatible (for IAA, launch Echo Pitch first).

Klevgrand Syndt Synthesizer For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Syndt is a high quality polyphonic synthesizer with a lot of possibilities. The oscillator waveform can be morphed between pure sine to pure square and supports alternation of pulse width. Both the shape and pulse width can be modulated by two independent LFOs. Finetuned low pass and high pass filters combined with a separate filter attack setting (optionally based on velocity) makes possibilities to create some raw and interesting sounds.

The additional LFO can be shaped exactly as the oscillator, and optionally controls filters, gain and pitch (using a modulation wheel or just automatcally). This LFO can be synchronized to a AUv3 host.

Globally there’s a nice stereo chorus, ping pong stereo delay (that also can sync to a AUv3 hosts bpm) and EQ.

Key features:

* AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria, AUM etc.
* 70 professionally made presets
* XY pad based oscillator and LFO (PWM on the X axis and morphs between sine and square on the Y axis)
* Independent mini-LFO (sine only) for each axis of the oscillator XY-pad.
* LP / HP filter with resonance
* LP Filter can be velocity sensitive
* LP Filter has an optional attack time
* LFO can affect LP filter, HP filter, gain level and pitch
* LFO has an optional attack time
* LFO can be syncronized with an AUv3 host (AUv3 mode only!)
* Ping pong stereo delay (optionally syncs to host)
* Stereo Chorus
* Three band EQ
* Legato mode with glide speed parameter
* Pitch bend range

Important: Syndt 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 Syndt with AUv3 compatible hosts.

OBS! Syndt oversamples the signal and uses sophisticated DSP features which makes it consume quite some CPU. An iPad AIR 2 or better is recommended if you’re planning to use many voices simultaneously.
