Elastic Drums With Sampler Feature
(click to see sample feature up close)

Features:
– 6 synth channels with 12 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone)
– 12 parameters for each synth engine
– automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
– 4 send effect channels with 2×13 mono effects and 2×11 stereo effects
– automation for all of the 8 possible effect parameters via xy pad
– master effects (stutter, delay, compressor …)
– 16 step sequencer for the 6 channels, each with it’s own tempo multiplier & length
– record audio and export to Soundcloud or Audioshare
– email audio recordings and presets
– Audiobus, Audiobus Remote, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Link support
– Midi learn/Midi implementation of the most important parameters

Because all sounds get generated in realtime, the app is cpu heavy! iPhones 5 and greater can handle it with no problem, on iPhone 4s effects 3 and 4 get switched off by the engine automatically to save some cpu power. iPhone 4 and iPad1 are NOT recommended!

tines-electric-piano-for-ios

Tines emulates an electric piano. With internal effects like a stereo tremolo, a multiband distortion panel and a subtle roomy reverb Tines can sound like anything between a dreamy slick Rhodes to a nasty Wurlitzer. A finetuned velocity curve makes it a joy to play Tines on an external keyboard.

tines

Features:

• AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like Garageband, Cubasis, AUM etc.
• Tremolo depth and speed (XY pad) with phase offset
• Variable decay time
• Variable Air (room) amount
• Multiband distortion

Note: Tines in stand-alone mode does not support IAA, Audiobus or MIDI. You can play it using the keys at the bottom, but that’s it. We recommend using Tines with AUv3 compatible hosts.

iPhone 6 or later is recommended. iPad 4 or later is recommended.

jussi-klevgrand

Jussi is a synthesizer that emulates male voice vowels in a unique way. Thanks to a set of powerful parameters you can make Jussi sing anything from soft and airy choir-like vowels to hard and angry shouting.

Formants are controlled by playing with different velocity, which makes it fun and easy to play using a MIDI keyboard.

jussi-vocal-synth

Features:

• AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like Garageband, Cubasis, AUM etc.

• ADSR with ”Turn-in” and ”Turn-out” option (Turn-in and Turn-out affects the pitch and maps it to attack and release)

• Voice character XY pad (Intensity and Narrowness)

• Legato mode (glides between notes and velocity levels)

• Legato Hold mode (polyphonic legato when using a sustain controller, consult the documentation for more info)

• Throat emulation XY pad (Grain and Tonality)

• Built-in reverb

Note: Jussi in stand-alone mode does not support IAA, Audiobus or MIDI. You can play it using the keys at the bottom, but that’s it. We recommend using Jussi with AUv3 compatible hosts.

iPhone 6 or later is recommended.
iPad 4 or later is recommended.
