PPG Phonem Adds AU Automation
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

PPG Phonem lets the user create expressive vocal synthesis beyond anything ever heard before. With its advanced routing system every aspect of the voice can be controlled and modulated in any conceivable way. Anything from a quiet whisper to a scream. Use the intuitive text to speech tool to make Phonem say whatever you want.

What’s New
AU extension – parameter automation
AU extension – pages come back as saved in FullState
AU extension – All notes off command
AU extension – iPad Pro compatibility issues
User reported bug fixes

Although the PPG Phonem was originally designed to do just vocal synthesis, it turned out that the system was also capable of producing a wide range of universal synthsizer sounds. So we extended the parameter ranges and made everything accessible to the user, to take advantage of this fact.

Rozeta Audio Unit Automation
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,


Rozeta is a suite of MIDI sequencers and controllers that lets you explore a new, freeform approach to sequencing and controlling mobile music apps.

The app contains 9 MIDI Audio Units (a totally new feature in iOS11) in a single package, which can be loaded in compatible MIDI AU hosts (Kymatica AUM, Beatmaker 3, Sequencism).

Rozeta Arpeggio, Collider, LFO, Particles and X0X now allow selected parameters to be automated:
– by recording parameter changes from the plugin’s UI
– through exposed AU Parameters
– by sending MIDI CC commands

1) Rozeta Bassline: a monosequencer based on the popular Troublemaker sequencer. Obviously comes with all the randomization and mutation features. Up to 8 patterns per sequence, with Follow Actions. Transpose using MIDI.

2) Rozeta Rhythm: a euclidean drum sequencer with mutations per instrument and polyrhythms. Comes with configurable key mappings for many popular drum apps.

3) Rozeta X0X: classic TR-styles step sequencer for drum machines. Supports triplets, polyrhythms and mutations per channel. Optionally emulates the exact timing jitter pattern of the legendary TR-808

4) Rozeta LFO: a triple MIDI LFO generator lets you modulate CC parameters of your MIDI instruments. Apply amplitude modulation to each wave for more organic behavior. Optionally syncs to tempo.

5) Rozeta XY: a double XY Controller Pad for generating 4 simultaneous configurable CC controller streams per instance. Also features MOD wheel and PitchBend sliders.

6) Rozeta Arpeggio: adds a MIDI arpeggiator to any of your synths. Offers latch mode, shuffle and automatic tempo synchronization. Turn any incoming MIDI stream into an arpeggio on the fly.

7) Rozeta Particles: MIDI particle generator – generates a cloud of MIDI notes that create pseudo-random patterns when bounding off the walls.

8) Rozeta Cells: Polyphonic Step Recorder – record and play back polyphonic phrases and patterns.

9) Rozeta Collider (NEW): MIDI Hadron Collider – explore semi-repeating generative patterns and melodies.

Notes:
– these plugins do not run as a standalone app and require a compatible host to work
– MIDI is not sound. To make sound you’ll have to feed the MIDI into a synthesizer or instrument app. Bring your own synths!

KORG Module and the microKEY are the best possible combination for a mobile performance environment. With the new microKEY which supports a damper, or the microKEY Air which provides a wireless connection via Bluetooth MIDI, your iPad can transform into a high-quality sound module. In your room, in a practice studio, or performing on stage,, it’s easy to set up and immerse yourself in a superb playing experience wherever you are. Of course you can also use any MIDI keyboard that can connect to your iPad via Apple Lightning – USB camera adapter. The velocity curve function conforms the sound to your playing dynamics, so you’ll be able to perform comfortably using any MIDI keyboard.
