Oriental-Strings-iPad

Oriental Strings is a professional sound module app for oriental keyboard players and for musicians who simply want to resemble the typical sound of the Middle East in their songs.

The sounds of Oriental Strings were exclusively recorded with players who are professionally dedicated to oriental style of music. Typical string instrument sounds for the arabic genre are covered by this app. Besides rather exotic instruments like the Chinese erhu, typical western string instruments were used as well, but since the players of the recording sessions are focused on oriental music, those western instruments sound completely different than you might be used to from western orchestra players.

– Polyphony up to 140 stereo voices.²
– Configurable audio latency down to 5 ms.
– Integrated effects with 18 presets.

– Supports “JACK Audio Connection Kit” for audio & MIDI streaming between other apps (up to iOS 6.1.3).

iSymphonic Orchestra

iSymphonic Orchestra sound app for sophisticated musicians, directed by Kurt Ader, designed as professional sound module for your iPad by connecting an external MIDI keyboard, using the Apple USB camera adapter or another adapter supported by Apple.¹

This app supports Apple’s “Inter-App Audio” System (requires iOS 7 or higher) and the “JACK Audio Connection Kit” (up to iOS 6.1.3) for audio & MIDI connections from/to other audio apps!

iSymphonic Orchestra was designed with the goal to deliver you superb, extremely realistic and stunning orchestra sounds, instantly with the first key being pressed by you on your MIDI keyboard. Just select a sound and you are ready for your live performance or for a boost of creativity while composing new songs. The sounds used in this app were explicitly recorded to fulfill these requirements and involved several months of recording and post processing under supervision of Kurt Ader and included a variety of innovative, new recording techniques. So far these sounds were only available to very few, famous movie composers. Now they are finally available for the first time to everybody. The supreme quality of these sounds, combined with the unique way they were recorded and assembled, gives us confidence that you haven’t heard anything comparable as of to date, even not on Mac or PC.

Sounds:
– 1. Orchestra Strings Spiccato & Legato
– 2. Orchestra Strings Slow 1
– 3. Chamber Arco Strings
– 4. Legato Orchestra Strings 1
– 5. Full Sordino Strings 1
– 6. Legato Orchestra
– 7. Staccato Orchestra 1
– 8. Staccato Orchestra 2
– 9. Tremolo Orchestra
– 10. Pizzicato Strings

General Features:
– Low latency disk streaming.
– Polyphony up to 140 stereo voices.²
– Configurable audio latency down to 5 ms.
– Integrated effects with 18 presets.
– 16 parts.
– MIDI velocity response curve editor to fine tune the feeling of your MIDI keyboard.
– App can keep running in the background, so you can play on your keyboard while e.g. using Safari or another app to display scores or surfing the Internet.
– Hermode Tuning: Makes the sound more brilliant by controlling the pitch of the notes in multivoiced music to better frequency ratios than with fixed tuning. This dynamic tuning imitates the tuning behavior of well educated musicians of i.e. orchestras and choirs.
– Supports Apple’s “IAA” system for audio & MIDI streaming between other apps (iOS 7 or higher).
– Supports “JACK Audio Connection Kit” for audio & MIDI streaming between other apps (up to iOS 6.1.3).
– Virtual on-screen piano keyboard with velocity support, scalable & scrollable.

MIDI Player / Recorder:

– Use the “Tempo Zoom” dial knob to i.e. slow down playback at any time and learn your favorite songs more easily.

Note: This app requires quite some hardware resources. In case there are problems with this app, please close apps in the background by double pressing the device’s home button, the list of active apps appears on the bottom of the screen, tap and hold one app icon in the list, then press the respective app icon “minus” corner to quit those apps.
