MultiTrack AU App

MultiTrack Recorder Plugin App Store Description:
This is an AUv3 compatible Multi-Track Recorder plugin specifically designed for AUM and other DAW’s that don’t support audio recording capabilities.

MultiTrack can be used for a host of purposes such as a tool for recording and layering audio for export to other DAW’s , creating that perfect loop for other third party applications or recording vocal sessions to accompany you in AUM. Its uses are endless.

It features the ability to record up to 8 mono or stereo audio tracks per instance, with the ability to run multiple instances under the control of your host DAW. MultiTrack has the ability to run standalone using it’s own transport or synced to a host which allows synchronous control of multiple instances.

MultiTrack supports various recording modes including the ability to set punch in and out points for sample accurate recordings. Press the Host Sync in order to the advantage of the hosts transport controls or enable the remote button to enable host recording controls (great for NS2).

Use the Audio Pool window to quickly and easily import, export and perform mix-downs of audio clips. Quickly and easily move audio files using drag and drop to the time line or between the audio pool and the Files App. Imported audio is automatically converted to the projects sample rate. The audio pool also features the ability to copy and paste audio directly from the iOS pasteboard as well as preview and manage your data.

An intergrated 8 channel mixer allows you to control the level, pan and effect send levels. Although AUM allows some great routing options for third party effects, MultiTrack also includes an extremely CPU friendly beat synced delay and reverb which can be used where recording pre-effected instruments is not an option.

MultiTrack allows per clip volume level as well as being able to control start and end cropping and fade in/out on a clip by clip basis. All these operations are quick and easy to make using the touch screen alone.

Also included is the ability to perform operations such as splitting, normalising, reversing and time stretching of audio clips all with a multi-level undo built right in. A comprehensive set of selection, copying and duplication tools make editing a breeze.

Each track has it’s own mute, solo and metering which can also be used to monitoring incoming signal levels. Finally you have the ability to mix down a selected range of your song or create perfectly looped samples for use in other DAW’s , samplers and drum machines such as DigiStix.

Features:

○ 8 tracks per instance.
○ Mixer with level, pan and effect settings.
○ Mix mono or stereo clips on a track.
○ Built in CPU friendly delay and reverb.
○ Multi-level undo function.
○ Loop play and record modes (when not synced to host).

Vesuvius Sampler For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Vesuvius Sampler App

Vesuvius Sampler is a 10-part groovebox for the iPad that emulates the Korg volca sample from the Korg Volca series. Developed by Finegear using Korg’s open source SYRO SDK, Vesuvius is designed to help users select, prepare, sequence and upload their samples and pattern sets for their Korg volca sample.

As an emulation of the Volca Sample, it fully reproduces the features and interface of the original hardware unit. It brings to the iPad environment the intuitive sequencer and sampler and the same array of sample manipulations enhanced with an analog isolator and an assignable reverb effect.

More than just an emulation, Vesuvius also features sample importing, MIDI sync, MIDI mapping (and learning) as well as audio session recording in order to make it as usable as possible.

There is also a sample edit view which features browsing and import options (internal library, iTunes shared folder) as well as direct sample editing, further enabling you to load and edit any of your samples wherever they are!

To load samples and patterns on Volca hardware units, Vesuvius integrates Korg’s SYRO SDK and offers a complete solution that streamlines your workflow.

You can use Vesuvius as a standalone groovebox or just to prepare your sample sets and patterns for your Volca Sample. It is also a great app to discover the world of sampling and sample mangling.

Vesuvius iOS Sampler

Features:

– 10 part sampling groovebox
– Part assignable reverb
– Isolator equalizer on the master
– 100 sample slots per project
– Interface emulation: it works and sounds just like the hardware version!

Knorr Bass Exciter
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Knorr Bass Exciter App

Knorr is a plugin that adds intensity and edge to a monophonic low frequency audio source (like a bass). The algorithm adds overtones to an existing sound in a way that isn’t possible with ordinary distortion or filtering.

The Knorr Algorithm

The underlying algorithm uses a combination of filtering, amplitude- , and frequency modulation to process incoming audio. Although Knorr is developed with bass sounds in mind, it can be used on any monophonic sound source as long as there is audio content available in the low mids (and below).

**User interface**

XY Pad – Controls the bandwidth and amount of energy sent to the algorithm. Click and drag to move the marker.

Range (X-axis) – Sets a low pass filter frequency of the signal to be sent to the algorithm. Spans from 100 Hz to 1 kHz.

Level (Y-axis) – Sets the level of the low passed audio content.

Bite (SOFT, MEDIUM, HARD) – Alters the amount of intensity of the modulations.

Output – Sets the output level.

Bypass – Turns the effect on or off.

Frequency Response graph – Shows the frequency response of the internal modulation signal.

Note that Knorr is a AUv3 only and and needs to be launched via a AUv3 compatible host like GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria or similar. It will not work as a stand alone application.
