Hexaglyphics Noise Generator For iPad

Hexaglyphics is a 13-bit noise generator with an interface based on an original alphabet for hexadecimal values. It can turn gestures into a wide range of noise sweeps, beeps, zaps/clicks, squarish oscillations and abstract sounds.

– Multitouch control zone with frequency of the noise oscillator on the x axis and (linear) amplitude on the y axis. The data of multiple touch are used consecutively each oscillator cycle. Every sample generated is visualized in this control zone, white are positive values and grey are negative values.
– Multitouch filter bar: Bandpass filter when you use one finger or Lowpass/Highpass combination when you use two fingers. Filters frequencies are not smoothed so with the right fast gestures you can execute some kinds of strange clicky sounds.
– Subsonic sine generator for subs and 808-ish kicks. You can deactivate/reactivate the sub sine interface by pressing the channel button more than 2 seconds and then releasing it.
– Buttons for selecting one of five different tone generation modes.
– Latch button for holding down the touched points even when you raise your fingers, useful for further processing the sound using external effects or plugins. You can latch everything or just the filter bar. When “latch all” mode is active a button appears at the right of the filter bar for clearing the latched touch points.
– Three performance mode: Standard for normal gated playing, Click mode for generating one-frequency-cycle clicks and Hybrid for generating click with a single touch and long sounds with multi-touch.
– Three output channel modes: Mono, Stereo (sub is always mono) and Split (noise on the left and sub on the right, useful for using different channels on a mixer).
– Audiobus 2 and Inter-App Audio support.

PHOTOSENSITIVE SEIZURE WARNING:
A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in this app. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these “photosensitive epileptic seizures” to occur. Please do not use this program if you think you may be affected, and discontinue use if the app causes any discomfort.

A NEW APPROACH TO MAKING MUSIC
A glass surface becomes unbelievably musical with NOISE, which lets you make and shape sounds by drumming the screen, gliding your fingers along it, pressing into it, and lifting off. You create music through intuitive gestures on a series of easy-to-navigate interfaces.

A HIGH-POWERED MUSICAL SKETCHPAD
Not only can you perform music with NOISE. You can also produce. Start by choosing from custom-made sounds that range from to string sections to crunchy hip hop basses. Record basslines and melodies as loops of varying lengths. Mix and match your loops to build amazingly multi-layered songs — all within the app. Then export your project to desktop studio software and refine your musical idea further.

500 SOUNDS — AND GROWING
The ever-growing library of NOISE sounds include powerful percussion, sparkly synths, magic flutes, head-banging guitar leads, rousing orchestrals, and stunningly life-like acoustic strings and brass. World-renowned artists like Pharrell, Grimes, RZA of Wu-Tang Clan, Steve Aoki, and Rudimental have also created customized packs of their signature sounds. 35 sounds are completely free, and hundreds more are available through in-app purchases.

ROLI BLOCKS TAKES YOUR MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL
The power of NOISE expands when you connect to ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music-making system. Pairing wirelessly, NOISE becomes the sound engine for the Lightpad Block and Seaboard Block controllers. Apply the musical gestures you’ve learned in NOISE to the pressure-responsive silicone surfaces of BLOCKS — and be even more expressive. Watch films and learn more about BLOCKS on ROLI.com.

Brusfri Noise Reducer App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Brusfri* is a highly advanced audio noise reducer, packed into a simple and straight-forward interface. It is very well suited for cleaning up noisy audio recordings, while retaining sound quality. Unlike many other noise reducers on the market, Brusfri doesn’t mess with audio phasing to suppress noise (a technique that often comes with audible side effects). Instead, multiple fine-tuned gates are used to silence unwanted noise.

*Brusfri means “Noise free” in Swedish.

IMPORTANT! Brusfri is currently AUv3 only, which means it won’t work in stand alone mode. It must be used as a plugin with Garageband, Cubasis, Auria, AUM, AudioBus 3 (not AudioBus 2) or any AUv3 compatible host. If you’re not sure what AUv3 is, do not buy this app.

Here are some examples of sound conditions that Brusfri handles well:

* Guitar amp
* Noisy vintage gear
* Boosted pre-amp
* iPhone/iPad and external mic hiss
* Room reverb removal
* Fan noise
* Background ambiance
* Mains hum / Electric hum

Press “Learn” during a couple of seconds of isolated noise to record a “profile” for noise.

Use:

Open Brusfri in any AUv3 compatible host.
Find a region in the recording that only contains noise and play it.
Tap and hold the “LEARN” button for a short while (a second will be enough)
When the LEARN button is released, Brusfri starts reducing noise.

There is also a bunch of parameters available that affects the noise reduction algorithm:

ATK / THRS / REL (Attack Time / Threshold / Release Time)

Threshold – basically determines how much noise to be removed. A lower value means more reduction

Attack and Release sets the time it will take for the reducer to start working.

EDGE

Controls the reduction aggressivity. A lower value gives a smoother reduction.

HPF

Reduces low frequencies.

HIGH

Compensates high frequencies by boosting them.

NOTE! Brusfri is CPU intensive and iPhone 6S / iPad AIR 2 or better is recommended. We highly recommend freezing/bouncing tracks to reduce CPU usage.

NOISE is a free app that makes music mobile, so you can play and learn music anywhere you take your connected device. Using simple, easy-to-learn gestures, you can create beats, melodies, and songs with a huge library of sounds. Play NOISE on your phone or tablet, and extend its musical powers by pairing NOISE with ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music studio. NOISE was developed by music technology pioneer ROLI.

What’s New in Version 2.5.1
Introducing Mixing!
– Control the level of your tracks on screen or turn your Lightpad into a bank of faders
– Access the mixer by tapping on the Volume icon whilst in the song view or configure your Lightpad in My Studio

Bug Fixes:
– Synth presets could be pitched up if iDevice changes sample rate
– Occasionally synth presets would be silent when running other apps in the background
– Clips could get deleted when using the undo button

A NEW APPROACH TO MAKING MUSIC
Your touch screen becomes a real musical instrument with NOISE, which lets you shape sounds by drumming the screen, gliding your fingers along it, pressing into it, and lifting off. You make music through intuitive gestures on a grid of colorful pads. Each pad is a particular instrument or a note in a scale.

AN INSTRUMENT AND A STUDIO IN ONE
NOISE makes you both a performer and a producer. Start by choosing from custom-made sounds that range from bongo drums to string sections to zithers. Shape those sounds into beats and melodies, and record them as loops. Then mix and match these loops and build amazingly multi-layered songs.

DESIGNED FOR LEARNERS
If you love listening to music but don’t think you can play an instrument, NOISE may change your mind. It’s a fun, interactive learning tool. In Learn Mode, just trace illuminated Light Trails to learn how to shape beats and melodies. Choose from one of 15 scales, and the notes of that scale light up on the grid. Turn on Hide Mode to always stay in tune — it hides notes that not in the key. Use Snap Mode to stay in time — it snaps your performance to the tempo.
