Strange Agency Soup Granular
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Strange Agency (makers of Curtis, MegaCurtis, and Donut) are back this time with Soup Granular a cool new granular audio manipulation tool.

Retro Future

Inspired by the oil can delays of the 60s and our previous granular explorations, Curtis™ and Spunk™, Soup brings you a virtual magnetic fluid that you can record onto, slosh around, and play back from. You can use it as a unique delay effect or more like a granular synthesizer, concocting your own wholly novel sounds.

Quantum Sound

Soup breaks up recordings into individual sound quanta with which you can interact as if they made up an audio fluid. They can be played linearly or randomly, forward, backward, or even sideways. They can, moreover, be stirred together, giving a whole new meaning to mixing sound.

Sounds Touching

Not only is this an extremely visual audio experience, it’s terrifically tactile as well. With support for multi-touch, Soup lets you get in there and mangle the fluid in a way that’s simply not possible with knobs and faders.

Audio Palette

Soup will let you literally paint with sound. You can record external sounds through the microphone or import WAV files, slathering sound over the virtual fluid. Then your fingers can become play heads, reading back the sounds from any position, or multiple positions at once.

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).

SoundScaper

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

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 to use for real-time sound creation and at live performance.

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 feature give you the possibility of smooth changing all parameters from current scene to another in auto or manual modes. Morphing is not only changes the scene but also generates new sounding and effects in process of transition between them. This is realtime instrument that adds new ways of experiments with soundscapes creation.

What’s New in Version 1.5

● Significant additions to morphing function.
● Controls of filters combined with delay added to morphing panel.
● Small improvement of scaper sound engine.
● Minor bug fixes.

iterator Real Time Glitch App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,

iterator real time glitch app

iterator is an inspiring sample based musical instrument with a stylistic interface. The premise is simple: The x-axis controls the sample playback position. The y-axis controls the repeat speed. The result is surprisingly musical. Great for creating 90s style glitched out soundscapes and music like Opal or Microstoria.

Create your own soundscapes using any of the built-in 75+ samples from over 25 artists, including Richard Devine, Parallel Worlds, Toppobrillo, Atomic Shadow, and many more. Or, supply your own .mp3s through iTunes.

Kyma Controller App For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Kyma Controller App For iPad

Kyma Control is the Swiss-army-knife of controllers for the Kyma Sound Design Workstation, providing four of the most popular Kyma controller-modes in one, wireless multi-touch package: a bi-directional mirror of Kyma’s Virtual Control Surface, a multi-touch pen/tablet controller, a standard and a Tonnetz keyboard, accelerometer controls, and compass heading for using direction as a control.

For use in the studio, on stage, in the lab, at home, or in classroom, Kyma Control frees you from having to sit in front of your laptop; put yourself inside the sound field and perform your Sounds in an expressive, intuitive manner using your hands and gestures.

What’s New in Version 1.1.1

This version adds support for two dimensional faders, and buttons and switches with distinct on and off labels. The standard and Tonnetz keyboards are now on separate tabs, the keyboard range indicator now includes keyboard rounding mode selector, and the Volume control faders are now longer. This version is compatible with iOS 5.


FEATURES

• Auto-mapping, bi-directional multi-touch mirroring of Kyma’s Virtual Control Surface (VCS)
• Pen/tablet surface tracking as many as 11 fingers with color trails to help you track finger position
• A keyboard for sending !KeyDown and either continuous or discrete values for !KeyPitch & !KeyTimbre
• A Tonnetz pitch-space with configurable vertical and horizontal intervals
• Pitches can be rounded to equal tempered pitch, rounded only on !KeyDown and continuously variable after that, or, in Strum-mode, triggered when your finger passes by the key
• Trigger or control Sounds with the iPad’s accelerometer measurements in the X, Y, Z directions, as well as controls corresponding with Pitch, Roll and Yaw
• Compass heading from the iPad’s magnetometer tells you which way the iPad is pointing so you can use it for panning and other controls

REQUIREMENTS

• iPad
• Symbolic Sound Kyma X.77 (or newer) with Paca(rana) Sound Computation Engine
• WiFi connection to network accessible to the Paca(rana)
