Wilsonic Adds Audiokit Integration
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Ervin Wilson app

Wilsonic is your portal to new musical universes. Ervin Wilson’s 65 years of tuning research and discovery are now at your fingertips. By touching, hearing, and feeling Wilson’s designs you can intuitively break free of the limits of the 12 note scale used by historical musical instruments such as the piano and guitar to pioneer new music never-before heard by mankind.

UPDATE 1.8.1 Jan 8, 2019
* “AudioKit TuneUp”: Wilsonic can now share tunings with AudioKit Synth One (free) and Digital D1 Synth (paid):
Select the Wilsonic “Instrument” popover and choose Synth One or D1. If you have the app installed and running it will load the tuning.
Synth One will save the tuning in the User Tuning Bank.

No previous knowledge of music theory is required. These tonal worlds are based on an entirely unique mode of thought that has little to do with historical musical thinking.

The app features Wilson’s most profound scale designs. Your hands and ears naturally find new melodic patterns and harmonies that touch on those feelings and emotions you couldn’t find before. When you find that perfect scale export it as a Scala file to tune up your favorite software synthesizers. Share your favorite scales with your friends. This version of Wilsonic has the scales “Moments Of Symmetry”, Co-Prime Grid, Tetrany Major, Hexany, Tetrany Minor, Mandala (Hexany Stellate), Tetradic Diamond, Hexany Diamond, Aggregate Rotations of Euler Genus 4, Eikosany, Partch 43, Harmonic Spiral, Highland Bagpipes, and Recurrence Relations.

Wilsonic is Audiobus 2.3.x compatible.

New Synth EG WaveShaper
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

WaveShaper synthesizer for iOS

EG WaveSHAPER is the first synthesizer that lets you create your sound with a finger.

Draw the waveform on the screen or shape a builtin one, mix it with a classic analog oscillator and a sub oscillator and automate all the knobs with 2 drawable LFOs and 2 ENVs

HYBRID WAVESHAPING ENGINE
‘Waveshaping is a synthesis-and-transformation technique that turns simple sounds into complex sounds’

2 wavetables can be designed and morphed to create unique and dynamic sounds under your finger, choosing the morph attack and release; complex spectra can be created waveshaping the oscillator and introducing non linear distortion, rich harmonics and a tube-vacuum behaviour.
The hybrid Waveshaping/Wavetable engine lets you combine a wavetable oscillator with a classic oscillator and a sub oscillator, to add additional sound layers and depth.

LFOs & ENVs
2 Lfo and 2 Envelopes with indipendent time can be assigned to virtually any of the synth parameters. They can also be graphically designed with the touch of your finger or you can choose among the builtin envelopes.

OTHER FEATURES
– Hybrid Wavetable/Waveshaping engine
– Draw your wavetable oscillator with your finger
– 100+ presets (Pad, Lead, Bass and Fx)
– 30+ builtin waveforms to use and modify
– 2 LFOs and 2 ENVs assignable to any parameter
– FX: Reverb, Delay and EG Crush
– Detune osc to create huge unison sounds
– FM and Noise with configurble FM Ratio and Noise eq
– VCF and Reso filters
– Complete presets management with export and share
– Core MIDI: MIDI in, MIDI CC, MIDI channel pressure control
– AU3 with full knobs parameters automation
– Universal for iPad & iPhone
