Bent FM

The iPadloops music app blog is proud to announce news by Mayank Sanganeria.

bent.fm is a full FM model of a circuit-bent synthesizer. bent.fm allows the user to tweak classic circuit bending modifications like fine and octave-decimated clock bends, and experiment with more esoteric bends. Circuit-bent distortions and algorithmic sequences can be created by (im)proper connections on the bend matrix. Reroute digital serial information through the base chip set (a numerically controlled oscillator) and extra logic gates (NAND and XOR, binary counters), and experience architecture-level bit crushing. For anyone interested in circuit bending, glitch sounds, industrial music, and post-procedural art.

Bent-FM

What’s New in Version 1.5
• bent.fm is now a Universal App
– iPhone version lets you control 1 oscillator
– iPad version lets you control 2 oscillators
• Updated to Audiobus 2.2.1
• MIDI keyboards supported for pitch input!

– AN2015 features virtual analog modeling like the AN1x. It also features a drum part that can keep the beat going while you perform and control the main synth part.

● Use case 1: Enjoy it as a standalone iOS app
There are 2 modes available, SYNTH mode and Drum mode that work at the same time, e.g. when drum phrase is playing, Analog sound can be selectable and playable with the drum phrase, and vice versa without stopping ongoing music.

Cryptoclash Generative Vowel Synth For iPhone

“Cryptoclash is a strange generative synthesizer, which translates letters into sound. By typing in a string of up to 20 letters (a-z), you set up the states of the sound engine, which are represented as roaming particles. Every time they collide, things can change. Use the accelerometers to change gravity, and tap on a ball to give it a velocity boost. Each time you choose the source string, you create a new sounding patch. Some sounds are noisier, and others more meditative; keep exploring and you’ll hear interesting new tuning systems (such as 26 notes per octave), and different amounts of synthesizer feedback.”

The description makes it look good. I put it to the test in the video below. Kinda lame but hey it’s free if you have a couple minutes to waste check it out.

“The central idea behind this work is that of the musical cryptogram, where letters are turned into notes; but the sound engine here avoids such a direct and obvious mapping for a combination of physics engine (thank you Box2D), live coding, sonification, finite state machines, Markov models and feedback FM.”

CryptoClash is NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Brother Synthesizer App For iOS

Brother is the brainchild of IDM producer and programmer ERik aka Humble from Norrköping, Sweden. This is a polyphonic cleaner brother of shapesynth, which comes with 4 preset waveforms. It is both capable of running on its own with background audio and core MIDI or as a slave to shapesynth. Brother comes with a kind if quirky sequencer loading tweets and converts them into sound, endless source of compositions. Capable of exporting to send with email, upload to soundcloud and MAPI audio copy.

Version 1.4 now universal app for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.

+++ Adding Oscilloscope. Comes in two modes, normal and red/cyan colour anaglyph.
+++ Navigation bar default bug fix.
+++ Minor graphic bug fix.
+++ NEW slave algorithm. Now works between devices using bonjour and tcp.
+++ Saving tweets.
+++ Adding blank space silence mode.
+++ Setting for base octave.
+++ Introducing the Paul Collins navigation bar shift. Tadah! 🙂
+++ Polyphonic.
+++ Sine, Square, Triangle and Saw.
+++ Double Delay.
+++ Background Audio.
+++ Core MIDI.

S709 Synth For iOS

S.709 is a synthesizer that uses four multitouch points on the screen and the accelerometer to give a large amount of control over a sine wave output. It’s good for creating strange noises and sound design.

Controls
——-

Orange – Volume and Pitch (radius control pitch range)
Pink – Ramp speed and note length
Blue – Delay Length and Pitch (hold down for delay)
Green – Delay Filter and Feedback

Accelerometer controls pitch and wave shape.

S.709 is NO LONGER AVAILABLE

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements.
