Fluxly Sound Design App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Fluxly sampler sound design tool

Fluxly is a musical physics looper where you create new instrument scenes by moving and spinning colorful Fluxum sound sample players. Fluxly brings a whole new approach to knob twiddling and sound making. Now compatible with Audiobus.

You can choose from a bank of built-in sound samples, or record your own samples and play them back in either direction at any speed. By touching two Fluxum and pushing them together you can link them into looping gear train machines. You can also enable movement and let the built-in physics engine take over as the Fluxum bounce around the instrument for random sonic fun.

Recording can be done right in the app, and loops can be up to about 10 seconds long. You can also customize all of the sounds in Bank 1 by using iTunes and the filesharing features of your iPhone or iPad to upload any sound samples from your computer.

Elastic Drums More MIDI Control
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Elastic Drums is a music app showcasing an interactive drum kit, that enables to create a huge range of rhythmic grids, ranging from classical analog drumkits up to experimental soundscapes. It contains six channels of high quality synthesized drum sounds, a step sequencer and 4 effect channels. All important control parameters are automatable. The result: Elastic drum composition with a unique character.

What’s New Aug 11, 2018 Version 2.2

– Improvement: Micro Recording for Sample Player got improved, showing input level, etc.
– New (Midi): Mic record button can now be triggered via Midi and will show sample view
– New (Midi): Autom & velocity buttons can now be triggered via Midi
– New (Midi): Program Change via IAA should work now also
– Improvement: β€žRecord audioβ€œ will not overwrite existing audio files anymore, but create new ones with a date ending
– Improvement (Jam screen): Midi notes will always trigger an instrument, even with β€žtrigβ€œ > 0 and stopped sequencer

Features:
– 6 synth channels with 13 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hihat, clap, tom, wobble, fm, fm4, square, grain, synth, drone, sampler)
– 12 parameters for each synth engine
– automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
– 4 send effect channels with 2×13 mono effects and 2×11 stereo effects
– automation for all of the 8 possible effect parameters via xy pad
– master effects (stutter, delay, compressor …)
– 16 step sequencer for the 6 channels, each with it’s own tempo multiplier & length
– record audio and export to Soundcloud or Audioshare
– email audio recordings and presets
– Audiobus, Audiobus Remote, Inter-App Audio and Ableton Link support
– Midi learn/Midi implementation of the most important parameters

Because all sounds get generated in realtime, the app is cpu heavy! iPhones 5 and greater can handle it with no problem, on iPhone 4s effects 3 and 4 get switched off by the engine automatically to save some cpu power. iPhone 4 and iPad1 are NOT recommended!

Elastic Drums is published by MoMinstruments, the instruments app label of Mouse on Mars and friends.

Synthscaper Adds More Samples
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

Synthesizer specially designed for creating and experiments with ambient soundscapes in wide range from noises to melodic instruments and everything in between. You can construct melodic pads or atonal soundscapes from different kind of built-in or downloaded samples by using all power of multi-layered oscillators, chains of filters and effects, envelope generators and low frequency oscillators. Or just use predefined scenes and creating your own scenes from library of oscillators presets. Very flexible settings of each module give you a great opportunity for creating unique and colorful sounding from usual instruments or natural samples and adding automated changes and spatial effects for an endless variations. Different ways of assigning screen and MIDI keyboards to the oscillators provide very advanced features to control the sound. The on-screen keyboard is adapted to create special effects and varying the continuous textures and drones. The Designer tool using the neural network generates new presets based on already existing by adding some random variations and checking the result so that the new preset remains similar to the selected pattern.

What’s New:
1.4 Mar 13, 2018

This update adds Designer tool to iPhone version. This tool is intended to automatically generate and tweaking new presets and scenes. With using neural network the Designer generates new presets based on already existing by adding some random variations and checking the result so that the new preset remains similar to the selected pattern.

Also in this update:

● Added new scenes and presets.
● Added a lot of new samples in built-in library.
● The Designer tool available for iPhone version.
● Improved the option autotune for samples.
● Optimization for use on iPhone X.
● Audiobus SDK updated.
● Several minor bugs were fixed.

This is one of my all time favorite essential synth apps. It’s a synth/sampler like no other. Very deep and complex but simple enough to get fast results by just using a few tweaks. Runs on both iPad and iPhone.

Main features:

● Three independent oscillators.
● Three layers for each oscillator.
● Six voices for each layer.
● Six envelope generators.
● Six low frequency oscillators.
● Separate arpeggiator for each oscillator.
● Designer tool for generate scenes and presets.
● General processing of level, balance, LPF, HPF for each layer.
● Three slots for filters and effects after each oscillator.
● Twenty additional selectable filters and effects.
● Set of different kind of filters and effect modules.
● Spatial mixer with two different sound space.
● Screen keyboard adapted for continuous drones and soundscapes.
● Predefined set of keyboard scales and custom scales.
● Full screen, double and split features for screen keyboard.
● Options of screen keyboard for pitch, continuous, modify, velocity.
● Supports for two virtual and two MIDI keyboards at the same time.
● Flexible assigning keyboards and controls to the oscillators.
● Two main effects controls can combine several parameters.
● Uploading samples thru Dropbox, Web access, clipboard.
● Auto and manual tuning of samples with frequency analyzer.
● Set of predefined and ready-to-use scenes and presets.
● Built-in library of samples of instruments, synths, noises, etc.
● Possibility to pack and share scenes and samples as single file.
● Supports loop points and note info in wav files.
● Detailed application description (built-in and PDF file).
● Inter-App audio compatible (with transport and BPM controls).
● Supports Audiobus 3 with “State Saving” and MIDI features.
● Supports Ableton Link.

Requirements:

Recommended at least iPhone 6 / iPad Mini 4 / iPad Air 2 and higher.
