Real-Time Tape Echo Looper For iPad and iPhone
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Real-time tape echo looper for ipad and iphone

Echo Pad is a real-time Echo effect processor featuring a unique delay + sound on sound looper controlled by a multi-touch XY interface on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch device.

Use the built in mic on your headphones, plug in a guitar, microphone, synth, drum machine, iOS device, or whatever you want using an audio interface such as the Apogee Jam or MIC, or one of the many other compatible iOS and USB audio interfaces. (Verified up to date list of compatible audio interfaces below.)

Echo Pad was born out of love for tape echoes, sound on sound loopers and noisy, dirty analog delay pedals. Echo Pad excels at hands on warping delay tones and controlled feedback, and is not afraid to get loud.

Great for both live performance and sound design, Echo Pad was designed to have fun with the ability to sculpt a wide range of delay tones from subtle rhythms to heavy, dubbed out ambient swirls, to aggressive feedback explosions.
Who needs another whack, sterile digital delay to strum generic radio rock riffs with? No one.

Adding to the fun is a no frills sound on sound looper, perfect for quickly looping and layering guitar riffs or vocal melodies, glitching live audio input, building layered ambient soundscapes and more.
Loops can be quickly bounced to an audio file for sharing with other apps.

Echo Pad is a Universal app that supports Audio Copy/Paste (General Pasteboard) for quickly sharing loops and recordings created with Echo Pad with other audio apps, as well as playing back and processing pasted audio from other apps through Echo Pad’s effects. You can also export a loop or recording directly into the AudioShare file management app by using the “Export to AudioShare” functions. This exports your loop or recording directly into the AudioShare app without needing to use AudioCopy/Paste, for a super fast workflow.

Additionally, recordings and loops can be exported to iTunes FIle Sharing for access on your Mac/PC.

New features:

– Route main looper through FX. Record into the main looper, then process it. 🙂

– Paste audio into Main Looper. Paste audio to be automatically recorded and looped in the main sound on sound looper.

– Paste audio to scratch loopers. Paste audio from other apps to load directly into the scratch loopers using AudioPaste.

– Export/AudioCopy Scratch Loop to Pasteboard. Export and AudioCopy current contents of scratch loopers to the pasteboard.

– Export Scratch Loop to AudioShare. Export current contents of scratch loopers directly to AudioShare.

– New delay type: “Shimmer” octave up pitch shift delay, inspired by my favorite blue pedal (rhymes with ES-3).

Improvements:

– adjusted UI for better access of controls

– separate Import and Export menus

– delay hi pass/lo pass filter control (the red circle) is now controlled independently, no longer requires first finger to be onscreen.

– “Output L.P. Filter” replaces previous “Input L.P. Filter”. This now filters the master output, and can be modulated by the L.F.O.

Features:

* Realtime FX processor designed for live performance and sound design
* Multi-touch XY control of delay parameters for expressive control
* Sound on sound looper for creating layered loops on the fly
* Universal app
* Supports iPhone 5 screen
* supports Background audio
* Works with headphones as well as most iOS and professional USB audio interfaces including:
-Apogee Jam
-Apogee Mic
-iRig
-iRig iMic
-Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 (*requires external power thru USB hub)
– Apogee ONE (*requires external power thru USB hub)
– Apogee GIO (*requires external power thru USB hub)
– many more

Sharing/Exporting:
* Audio Copy and Paste for sharing loops and recordings made within Echo Pad, as well as playback and process pasted audio from other apps using Echo Pad in realtime. (General Pasteboard)
* supports NEW “Export to AudioShare” functionality.
Loops and recordings created with Echo Pad can be exported directly to the AudioShare app for easy audio file management.
* recordings & loops are exported to iTunes File Sharing for access on your Mac/PC

Sound design and Control:

* 4 delay types – Tape/analog echo, 8-bit, Rising, Reverse
* LFO assignable to delay time, input filter, volume. Great for subtle to extreme modulated echoes.
*Control delay time, feedback, and echo high pass and low pass filters with XY control. (dual touch, more gestures coming in updates.)
*Toggle slider control panels for access to full parameters.
* Save and recall effect settings.
*BPM sync for rhythmic delays.
*Tap tempo to set delay time and global BPM.
*Sound on sound looper for quickly capturing and layering sound.

Echo Pad is available for $2.99

Strange Attractor App Review
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Real-time Ambient Effects Processor For iPad

I decided to experiment with this app today and sadly I have been a bit let down. My plan was to use my iPad iO Dock as an audio interface so that I can send a stereo set of 1/4″ cables from a sound source (in this case a synth on my iPhone) into the iO Dock and then into the app Strange Attractor. The output from the iO Dock stereo pair of 1/4″ cables would then go into my mixer. Unfortunately this did not work. The app does not support audio input from the iO Dock. It only works with audio coming in through the headset mic or the internal microphone which means there is no way to get a stereo set of 1/4″ cables to a mixer and there is no way to get an isolated sound source into the app. I have sent the manufacturer a message with hopes that there is some kinda of setting that I’m missing but I kinda doubt it. I actually really like the sounds generated from this app and it has potential to be a really cool when used in a professional situation IMO if they fixed this issue.

Strange Attractor iPad App Review Set Up

Strange Attractor iPad App Review Set Up

Here is what iTunes says – Strange Attractor is a novel sound generator and effects processor based on chaos theory. At its heart is a feedback system which can spontaneously oscillate, or respond to incoming sounds, processing them into fractal sonic textures.

It generates a wide range of undulating sounds, controlled by touch, which slowly evolve in unpredictable ways. The sound is visualised as an ever-changing dynamic form.

Distort Delay Audio Effects For iPhone

Distort Delay Audio Effects For iPhone

Distort+Delay is a real-time audio processing application that adds high-quality distortion and delay effects to any incoming audio signal. Both acoustic and electric instruments produce excellent results. Performances can be recorded for later playback or sharing with friends. Good for Instruments and Djs!


Effect descriptions:

This app produces a wide range of effects, ranging from minor enhancement to wild modulations. The tube-style distortion effect allows for a variety of tones, from subtle warmth to heavy crunch.

An “8-bit” lo-fi crusher is also included. When active, the 8-bit lo-fi replaces the tube distortion and allows the control of both gain and phase. The result of this bit-crushing is similar to everyone’s favorite 80s-style video game console.

The delay effect works much the same as any guitar pedal: short delay-time produces a reverb-like sound; medium settings produce a slap-back echo; and larger delays create “spacey” sound textures. The included “hold” button allows for creative audio experimentation. Delay adjustments are smooth and can be heard as the familiar pitching effect usually associated with analog tape echoes.

Compression is included to help normalize microphone input. It can be toggled off for direct-input cable connections.

This application supports iPhone microphones, Apple-headphones microphones, dock-connector microphones, or guitar-to-iPhone cables.

Effects details:
– Distortion effects: classic tube and 8-bit lo-fi with tone and gain controls.
– Delay effects: 743ms maximum delay with variable feedback, and hold effect.
– Compressor: automatically normalizes microphone volumes.

Additional features:
– Capture your performances for future listening.
– E-mail your creations to your friends.
– Lossless AAC encoding is supported on iPhone 3GS+, iPod Touch 3rd Gen+, and iPad devices. Older devices will send WAV files.
