No need to lug out the amp; no more neighbors yelling for you to “turn it DOWN…!” Just a super-compact practice rig you can use with your headphones to rock wherever you are, whenever you want.

Tuck your iPhone into a pocket and you’re playing without being tied down (excellent for practicing windmills from atop your coffee table).

Turnado and DSI Tempest Jam
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Sugar Bytes Turnado

Hello everyone. Here is a simple little set up for adding subtle fills and effects to a hardware jam. I used an iTrack dock, iPad, Sugar Bytes Turnado, Big Sky, and Dave Smith Tempest. Please subscribe to my channel. I hope you enjoy the tune!

Turnado is a revolutionary multi-effect tool, crafted especially for massive real-time audio manipulation. It combines unique and dynamic effects with the most intuitive and immediate control you can imagine. Just turn it on and crank it up.

Take it to the stage and unleash Turnado’s true power. With instant access to eight effects and immediate control over key parameters, Turnado is guaranteed to cause devastation on the dance floor, shredding beats and crunking breaks to insane proportions.

Features at a Glance:
– 4 XY-Pads to control 2 Effects simultaneously (X,Y)
– Integrated Player (iTunes File Sharing, Music Library, Factory Loops)
– Integrated Recorder (div. Optionen: Start/Stop/Sync/Länge)
– Live Modus (Inputs & Outputs selectable)
– Auria Plug-In
– Inter-App Audio support
– Audiobus support
– AudioCopy/AudioShare import
– AudioCopy/AudioShare/Soundcoud/Dropbox export
– Full Midi Support (Virtual, Network, Extern)
– Midi Clock Sync
– Zoom

The idea is simple:
Turn a knob and the effect is on.
Turn the knob further to adjust effect parameters and apply modulations.
Turn the knob down and the effect is off.

With its instantaneous, one-knob, multi-parameter modulation features, Turnado will lay waste to the audio landscape. Giving you the power to crunch, chop, twist, mash and elevate your music to new levels, Turnado will have you creating wicked new sounds that will blow any crowd away.

Unlocking the power of your MIDI controller each effect requires only one knob to control it. Underneath this simplicity lies a matrix of effect parameters and modulation engines, all controlled by the main knob. This control matrix provides serious depth to the plugin and gives you the ability to create original and truly unique effect programs.

If the power of one-knob action still doesn’t rock your boat, the awesome “Dictator” mode will sink your battleship. It allows you to animate all the main knobs and run that animation with just one fader. That’s one fader, controlling up to 8 different effects, with potentially hundreds of parameter changes!

Turnado’s primary focus is on beat manipulation, so you will find lots of loopers, slicers and grain tools in the rack. Alongside these beat-mashing effects are an arsenal of distortions and filters as well as first-class delays and reverbs. With extensive modulation possibilities each effect can produce millions of unbelievable variations that can be morphed and twisted into something new every time you tweak those knobs.
Turnado will inspire you again and again, delivering completely new variations of your original sounds and grooves every time, so what are you waiting for…turn it on.
