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.

Roli Noise Hip Hop Jam

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.

ROLI BLOCKS TAKES YOUR MUSIC TO THE NEXT LEVEL

BUY ROLI Lightpad Block

The power of NOISE expands when you connect to ROLI BLOCKS, the modular music studio. Pairing wirelessly, NOISE becomes the sound engine for Lightpad Block and Seaboard Block. Learn more about BLOCKS on ROLI.com. On the pressure-sensitive surfaces of these Blocks, you can shape sounds and play songs in a way that is similar to the experience of playing NOISE on an iPhone or an iPad. But you can be even more expressive.

ZhSH Noise Music App For iOS
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

ZhSH is a sound design audio effect for producing heavy noise music by means of distortion.

Noise-centered and barely musical audio-effect application.
Treat it like Self-a-Fuzz small brother.
ZhSh can work as left-field distortion pedal or audio texture creator: generate and filter mix of white and pink(flicker) noise to fill night with pleasant sounds or use resulting sounds to blend-mix-shape your audio-input to add distortions.

Features:
+ White and Pink noise generator
+ Filter eq9 to gate noise
+ Pitch detector for eq9
+ Mutonic with 5 components
+ Output pure, filtered or blended audio
+ Presets system
+ Audiobus and IAA
+ Randomizers for every parameter
+ Oscillographs
+ Occasionally universal

Minimum requirements: iPhone 4s and iOS 8.

Use headphones or connect to other apps to avoid possible audio feedbacks.

App is free for a limited time. Let’s make some noise 🙂

Soundscaper Offers New Ways To Control Morphing
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

SoundScaperSoundScaper is an experimental sound mini lab for creating unusual soundscapes, atmospheric textures, drones, glitches and noises based on circuit bending principles.

With this application you can easily experiment with creating new and unusual sounds from ordinary samples. For sound designers and those interested in creating ambient or experimental electronic music, with filtering and mixing of up to three oscillators, you can create excellent soundscapes, textures and drones for your music or for movie soundtrack or entertainment apps and games. With complete MIDI control this application is very comfortable and powerful instrument to use for real-time sound creation and live improvisation.The oscillators, based on simulating schematics of actual 8 bit lofi sound playback chips, have circuit bending like controls that are ideal for making glitches, noises, crackles and granular sounds. Combined with the filtering and spatial mixing options, you can expand these sounds to deep and atmospheric textures. Finally you can add motion and continuous changes to your sounds via low frequency oscillators which can control the filter and mixer parameters.

The “Morphing scene” option gives you ability of smooth switching between scenes, applying multifunctional filters and changing oscillators parameters during morphing process. Using these features you can add a new dimension to the existing scenes varying them in the real time.

What’s inside:

soundscaper

  • Three sample-based oscillators with control based on circuit bending principles.
  • Three Low / High / Band – pass filters and two range delay for each oscillator.
  • Spatial mixer / reverb with side and distance for each sound source.
  • Three low frequency oscillators for automation mixer and filters.
  • Possibility of generating parameters for each oscillator randomly.
  • Scenes for storing all parameters of oscillators, filters and mixer.
  • Morphing with smooth changes scenes with additional effects in real-time.
  • Built-in library of natural samples grouped by categories.
  • Set of ready-to-use presets for oscillators.

 

Additional features:

  • Advanced control panel for all faders and rotary knobs.
  • Individual equalizer and reverb options for each sound source in the spatial mixer.
  • Complete MIDI control for all faders, knobs and most other elements.
  • Uploading samples through Dropbox, Web access, clipboard and from other apps.
  • Different color schemes available for the user interface.
  • Detailed application description (also in signle PDF).
  • Supports Audiobus with “State Saving” feature.
  • Inter-App audio compatible.

Requirements:

Fourth generation of iPad and higher is recommended (especially with Inter-app audio and Audiobus).
