Virsyn Matrix Vocoder For iOS

Matrix Vocoder transforms your voice into an electronic instrument! The Vocoder was invented by Homer Dudley in the mid-30’s of the last century. Dudley worked at Bell Laboratories, and this is where the first Vocoder took shape.

The Matrix Vocoder is designed to properly simulate the classic analog Vocoder sound made famous e.g. by the music of the german band Kraftwerk. At there last world tour they used in fact the PC version of our Matrix Vocoder on stage !

The basic function of a Vocoder is characterised by an analysis of the input signal, usually speech but other type of inputs can also be very interesting. In a special filter bank, a spectral analysis is performed and signals are developed which follows the amount of spectral energy in each channel. Another part of the analyser tests if there are unvoiced or voiced sounds at any particular time and extracts the pitch of the voiced sounds.

The output section of the vocoder consists of a stereophonic synthesis filter bank which assembles the new synthetic speech from the characteristic filter envelopes from the analysis stage together with an external or internal replacement signal.

– 32 channel Filterbank with 8-pole Butterworth analog filters

– Stereophonic synthesis with analog modelled alias free oscillators.

– External carrier possible ( left channel = voice / right channel = carrier )

– Voiced/Unvoiced detection

– Pitch tracking

– Formant shift

– Matrix uses patchbay to connect analysis and synthesis channels.

– Pan position and level for each channel.

– 16 internal oscillators with unlimited voices for choir like sounds.

– Stereo wide panorama parameter for internal generator.

– Optional monophonic generator with Glide setting.

– Internal noise generator.

– Effect AudioUnit and Music Effect AudioUnit

– stand alone / Audiobus 3 / IAA

Playbeat groove randomizer app for iOS

Playbeat is a creative groove randomizer plugin that generates beats and patterns for you.

Unlike an ordinary step sequencer, Playbeat creates patterns using algorithmic and random procedures for generating notes by combining Steps, Pitch and Volume.

Load, or import your own sounds and generate up to four patterns simultaneously to get polyrhythms. You can generate as many patterns as you want and never get the same one twice. That’s because there is essentially an infinite number of different possible combinations.

New ways of creating grooves help to break new ground in music and sound design

Quick-fire Unique Rhythm patterns and discover New ways of creating beats on the spot.

Playbeat has been designed to promote music creation both in studio and live performance with a simple and convenient user interface. Endlessly variable and Endlessly interesting.

Playbeat comes also as AUv3 plug-in and supports Ableton Link for tight sync between apps on the same network and MIDI Support.

Digistix Drum Audio Unit For iOS

DigiStix Drummer is an AUv3 compatible drum machine / sampler plugin for your favourite DAW.

The program has a host of features which allow you to sample your own drumkits and trigger them either using a host application via MIDI or using the inbuilt pattern and song editor which automatically syncs tempo with your DAW.

There as so many great sources of professionally recorded drum kits these days which can be imported into DigiStix allowing you to build a catalog of your favourite sounds. Alternatively use the built in sampler to record your very own kits.

DigiStix has 16 assignable pads which can be quickly mapped to individual drum samples or recordings. Each pad has it’s own volume level, panning, reverb, delay, reverse and sample length settings. You can assign each pad to a mute group which allow for instance a closed hi-hat to mute an open high hat etc. Each pad can be assigned a one shot or looped sample. This enables you to import pre-looped samples at a specified BPM and have them play when a pad is pressed. You can also import up to 3 samples per pad and use in multi-sample mode which allows different velocity levels to trigger different pads etc.

One great feature of DigiStix is the ability to none destructively assign samples from different kits to the pads for live performance and song creation. We also provide an intelligent melodic mapping mode which maps selected samples over all 16 pads tuned to a selected key and scale.

The inbuilt sequencer allows patterns of up to 64 beats in length. Each pattern can have it’s own time signature allowing complex arrangements can be constructed. Up to 256 patterns can be chained together to make a soung which are saved independently of the kits. The pattern editor also allows you to enter 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16th note triplets as well as reverse sample and accented notes. We provide easy velocity editing with ‘draw in’ drum rolls etc.

DigiStix also features a 16 channel mixer, configurable digital delay, reverb, chorus / flanger, bit crunch, overdrive, 8 band EQ and digital filtering options (HP and LP filters).

Each drum pad can be mapped to an external MIDI trigger allowing external drum pads to be connected if you wish.

Features:

• 16 assignable Pads.

• Mix and Match different kits.

• Up to 64 beats per pattern.

• Songs up to 255 patterns in length.

• Reverse Mode, Triplets and Accents.

• Supports Mute Groups.
