Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Echo Pitch pitch-shifting multi-delay for iPhone. Echo Pitch has 4 delays where each delayed signal can be pitched one octave up or down in 1/2 steps, and can function as a 4 voice harmonizer. Echo Pitch also has a built-in looper, amp simulator and reverb. Each of the four delays can be routed into the other for incredible, swirling, ambient washes and otherworldly sounds.

What’s New in Version 1.2
-status bar is now hidden for better appearance, particularly when using Audiobus
Thanks everyone for all the positive feedback and feature requests.
We’ll keep the updates coming!

Echo Pitch works best with an iOS audio interface, such as the Fender Slide or iRig. Echo Pitch is also Audiobus and Inter-App Audio compatible (for IAA, launch Echo Pitch first).

Sugar Bytes Unique Synth For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Unique was made for fun and vibes: Analogue sound, intense modulation and a killer set of features, delivering an amazing sonic spectrum that’s full of character: Classy sounds, powerful, warm… sometimes gritty.

Each of the 2 oscillators offers a selection of 5 waveforms: sawtooth and pulse waves are here, along with noise, triple saw and triple FM waves. There’s also an additional sub-oscillator strapped into the master section for added oomph.

The internal controllers will bring in the dynamics: an LFO and an envelope, there’s a recordable XY field & a sequencer. Use these to modulate any knob – a simple long tap will do.

The sound springs to life when it hits the filter section. Needless to say, analogue high-pass, low-pass and band-pass varieties are in place, along with a comb filter.

Standards aside, the actual intention behind this project, the Vowel Filter, also became its outstanding feature: string together two or four vowel formants and play them back in a multitude of ways.

Once you’ve built your sound, there’s tons of sound polish in two chained multi-effect units.

Features:

• Sawtooth, Triple Saw, Pulse, Triple FM, Noise with tonal Filter, Sub Sine
• 5 Filters with 5 Modulators each
• Duophone Arpeggiator
• Vowel Filter
• Two Effect Sections
• Ableton Link Kit & AudioBus
• MIDI Learn & Host Automation
• 300 groovy presets by various artists
