Using DAW LP as an instrument

There are plenty of videos demoing DAW LP as an effect but what about using it as an instrument!? I’ll show you how you can turn it into a cool glitchy “Perplex On” inspired soundscape in AUM. Make those random turntables scratches sound like glitched out percussion hits and hats.

Sound Design Making Synth Drums

Learn how to make drums in a synthesizer on an iPad

The following video tutorial will show you how to make drum sounds in a synthesizer. Drums immediately came to mind when asked to make presets for Audiokit Synth One. I just had to make a kit for folks who like to use synth drums like I do. The following sound design tutorial will get you started designing your own drums in a synthesizer in this case Synth One. This information works across the board so you can use this information on your favorite synth. I also formatted the kit for Patterning 1 and Patterning 2 so go ahead and grab that kit from the Patterning kit cloud. I highly recommend getting Patterning if you don’t have it already.

I hope you learn something from my video! Thanks for watching and please check out my Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/djpuzzle

Strange Agency Soup Granular

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.
