Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

SunVox iPad App

SunVox is the most powerful music creation tool for iOS. It is a small and fast cross-platform modular synthesizer with pattern based sequencer (tracker).

v1.9.4 (29 jul 2018):

* user files are now available through the Files app;
* partial USB/Bluetooth keyboard support (no key release, no Home/End, no F1/F2/…);
* improved iPhone X display support;
* sound engine optimization;
* indicating the modules whose controllers are tied to the MIDI;
* additional slider for scrolling the controllers when there is not enough space on the screen;
* spectrogram has been added to the to the spectrum analyzer;
* detailed settings of the spectrum analyzer are now available through the main menu -> Preferences -> Modules;
* Amplifier: new controller “Gain” for high amplification (x100, x1000 and higher);
* Analog Generator: new option “True zero attack/release” – turn it on when you need a very fast (instantaneous) zero attack or/and release;
* Analog Generator: new waveforms: “noise with spline interpolation (sampler)”, “white noise”, “pink noise”, “red noise”, “blue noise”, “violet noise”, “grey noise”;
* Compressor: new mode “peak zero latency” for compression/limiting without delay; modes “peak” and “RMS” operate with a delay of 1 ms;
* Distortion: new types: “foldback2”, “foldback3”, “overflow”;
* GPIO: max number of pins is increased to 256;
* LFO: new waveform “random interpolated” (same as random (5), but with a smoother transition between the signal levels);
* DrumSynth: three additional panning controllers for the bass, hihat and snare;
* Kicker and DrumSynth: panning controller can now be set locally (for each note separately);
* Kicker: “Boost” (old name – “Vol.addition”) controller works again after it was accidentally broken in SunVox 1.6 🙂 (base SunVox version in the project properties must be 1.9.4 or higher);
* Timeline: new function “set restart position” – use it to change the position which the project should restart from after the project end;
* pattern effect 03 (slide to note): default speed value (XXYY) is 256 (100 in hex);
* new pattern effect 24: take a note from line XXYY on the same track; if the note to the left of the effect is specified, it will be used as the transposition value (relative to C5: c5 – one semitone higher, C4 – one octave lower, etc.); if the module number is missing, then the module number from line XXYY will be used;
* new pattern effect 25: take a random note from the range of lines XX..YY (inclusive) on the same track;
* new pattern effect 26: take a note from track XXYY on the same line;
* new pattern effect 27: take a random note from the range of tracks XX..YY (inclusive) on the same line;
* new pattern effect 28: take a note from line XXYY on track 0;
* new pattern effect 29: take a random note from the range of lines XX..YY (inclusive) on track 0; see example “pat effect 29 random note from trk0”;
* module remapping: “pattern” button has been added;
* dialog window shortcuts: Y or ENTER = first button on the left; N = second button; ESC = cancel; 1…9 = buttons from left to right;
* if you enter the file name “exporttest” when exporting to WAV, the SunVox engine speed test will be performed (without saving to disk);
* new keyboard shortcut: CTRL + SHIFT + N – new project;
* new keyboard shortcut: SHIFT + F10 – play from the pattern cursor;
* new instruments: keyboard/NR SuperSaw (lo-fi), analog11, analog12, pads/analog_distorted2, wind/NR Sax;
* new instruments and effects from other users (see the instruments and effects folders);
* new simple examples: idm, pat effect 29 random note from trk0;
* various small changes and improvements;
* updated version of SunVox library for developers;
* bug fixes.
* MultiCtl: new controllers “Response” and “Sample rate” to smoothly change the output value; response=1000 – immediate change; response 1000 – smooth change; optimal sample rate = 150Hz, please avoid higher values without the urgent need;
