BASSALICIOUS Moog-like AU Monosynth For Funk
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

BASSalicious Audio Unit Funk Bass Synth

BASSalicious is a dedicated monophonic synth bass plugin with a single focus on sound. All of the synthesis and filters are custom tweaked with our own personality and our urban ear. When we first set out to produce BASSalicious, it came from a need we had. All of our plugins come from a musical need first. We noticed that there were a ton of synth bass libraries out there that focused solely on dubstep and wobble bass sounds, but not that much out there for the urban community and that pure synth bass classic sound. Sure there are the sample based ones, but you run into problems with samples when trying to produce a realistic glide effect that is so essential to urban synth bass music. The other thing we were dissatisfied with were the oscillators themselves. You see, in order to reduce aliasing, most wavetable synths reduce the bandwidth and filter out frequencies so it doesn’t alias. The problem with this is that you filter out the good stuff along with it. We figured out a unique compromise, where we can give you the full band of the wavetable, while at the same time reducing aliasing. Our method is very unorthodox, but it works, because the technology will always take a back seat to the sound, and not the other way around: “If it sounds good, then it is good.”

Dedicated monophonic synth bass synthesizer featuring the NEW iOS AudioUnit Version 3 plugin architecture.

– 21 VA Wavetable Waveforms with PWM
– 4 Oscillators
– AMP with 4 Modulators
– Circuit Modeled Filter Section with Velocity
– LFO with Aftertouch

Furthermore, we used an analog modeled filter that was approximated using real circuit designs. The complete topology was modeled with all of the aspects of the electronic components involved, and then converted over to source code. The result is a very organic sounding synth bass plugin, which has no hint of that cold digital wavetable sound. This is what we mean when we say it has an “organic sound.” This is what you hear in urban music. Each key piece has it’s own sound, color, and character to it. It’s not trying to be something else. It’s it’s own individual and we achieved this with BASSalicious. Remember the first time you heard Neo-Soul Keys® and your ears were suddenly opened to the sound you always wished you had, but could never achieve.

IAP:
The first oscillator is free. You will have access to all of the synth functions. After you purchase, you will get access to the other 3 oscillators as well as the 63 high quality custom synth bass presets.

AudioUnit Plugin:
As an added bonus, we have adopted the new AudioUnit standard, so now you can seamlessly use BASSalicious inside of your favorite iOS DAW as if it was apart of the sequencer. Presets that you make in the app and/or the plugin will be shared automatically.

The recommended iPad devices are the iPad 4th generation and higher, with the exception of the iPad 3.

Moog Model 15 Modular Synth For iPhone and iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Moog Model 15

The Moog Model 15 App is the first Moog modular synthesizer and synthesis educational tool created exclusively for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

* The Model 15 App requires iOS version 9.3 or later to work. *

Each facet of the Moog Model 15 modular synthesizer has been meticulously recreated in this application to ensure the power and transcendent sound quality of each module remains intact. The character, harmonic complexity and mystique of the Moog Model 15’s modules, from the legendary Moog 921–series oscillators and 904A Low Pass Filter, to the coveted 907 Fixed Filter Bank have been painstakingly preserved.

In order to develop the most immersive and expressive modular interface possible, the Model 15 App has been designed utilizing Apple’s new Metal advanced graphics engine. This ensures that all zooming, panning and modular patching throughout the application feels completely natural, something that would have been impossible otherwise.

The Model 15 App features both monophonic and 4-voice polyphonic operation is easily commanded via 4 seamlessly integrated controllers. Simple swipes and taps provide instant access to a traditional Moog keyboard, 1150 ribbon controller, 8-step sequencing arpeggiator and the award-winning Animoog keyboard with 22 built-in scales and polyphonic modulation capabilities.

Also included are extended features which expand the capabilities of the app beyond the traditional offerings of the hardware Moog Model 15. These include total MIDI integration, assignment for external control, use as a MIDI controller, dedicated Audio Bridge and MIDI Bridge modules, looping recorder module with overdubbing, a master ping-pong delay module and a new extension cabinet that includes additional amplifiers and voltage-controlled reversible attenuators that can be used for effects like ring-modulation.

Because the Model 15 App utilizes Apple’s Metal technology, only 64-bit devices are supported. Compatible devices include iPhone 5s or newer, iPod touch 6 or newer, iPad Air or newer, and the iPad Pro.

Swarmatron Type Synth For iPad RS-08 Ribbon Synth
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

RS-08 Ribbon Controller Synth for iPad

Folks already familiar with the Dewanatron Swarmatron synthesizer will feel at home with this new synth for iPad called RS-08. The RS-08 is basically like 8 Swarmatrons in one. Ok so here is a little info about the Swarmatron. The Swarmatronwas created to produce eight tones tuned approximately to one note, each tone slightly different in pitch to produce a complex and natural choral effect. These eight oscillators can be played with a single ribbon controller (variable resistor) to move the pitch center up or down. The span control expands the sound of a swarm of eight notes spread just a few cents apart into a wide chord of equidistant pitches spread over the entire spectrum. The player can “taffy pull” the resulting chord by using the span control and pitch ribbon in tandem. Swarms of sine waves evoke swarms of angels congregating. Swarms of sawtooth waves evoke the swarming of bees. The sound of a host of voices, earthly or unearthly, has a unique character recognized by the ear even when they are folded together in unison.


(Swarmatron)

NOW enter the RS-08. RS-08 is a unusual synthesizer loosely inspired by the compositions of György Ligeti (and in my opinion the Swarmatron). It is an eight oscillator ribbon mono synth with fine tunable chord memory. The XYPad allows smooth pitch control and immediate jump to play back of 8 “Chord Slot” Chord Slots are the saved, fine or coarse oscillators pitches. RS-08 has 8 Chord Slots. The XYPad allows instant call back of a chord slot making RS-08 a great synth for playing one finger chords, or rich and dense cluster chords, or super saw like textures. The XYPad combined with careful setup of “Chord Slot” and glide control can yield an interesting micropolyphony performances. So essentially we have eight Swarmatrons (chord slots) here and a choice of three different waveforms PLUS ADSR filter and effects. So it’s like a Swarmatron on roids.

RS-08 Ribbon Controller Synth

Some features I hope for in future updates:
MIDI
import your own wavetables

What’s New in Version 1.1.0

Audiobus 2 support (Requires iOS 8 or higher)
IAA support (Inter–App Audio)

Currently the features above are just a wish list sadly as this little app has some killer potential.
