AudioKit D1 PCM Synthesizer

Epic 64-voice Virtual Analog / PCM iPad Synth. Inspired by the Digital Synths of the 80s and 90s – 100% of proceeds from this app go to support the AudioKit open-source project & AudioKit Synth One.

What’s new in Version 1.0.4

LOADS OF MICROTONALITY FEATURES ADDED:
+ Digital D1 can now open Scala Files: On your iPad select a link to a Scala file ending in “.scl” and you will see “Copy to Digital D1” as an option.
+ You can now use AudioKit Synth One to send Scales to Digital D1!
This functionality is kind of like Ableton Link, but, for Tuning.
How does this work? Go to the “Tune” panel in Synth One. There’s a new button called “TuneUp” (starting w/ version 1.0.3), click on that to open D1. You can also share master tuning setting.
+ New “Back” Button & Scale “Reset” buttons in D1 when using a scale from another app.
+ NEW Master Tuning knob on the bottom of the “FX” panel in D1 It goes from 432 to 440. If you want a wider range, you can set the tuning from Synth One

+ D1 now loads last used preset when restarted
+ Under the hood: Over 3,000+ lines of code have been re-worked as we fine-tune AUv3.
We are working every single day of the week on it. And, won’t rest until we get it to you. We’re in it for the marathon. We’ll always be updating and adding cool stuff to Digital D1.

ONE MORE THING: If you were an early adopter of D1, we have a special gift. Your copy of Digital D1 will be upgraded to the Platinum Edition in this update. Meaning, you’ll get all future sound expansions free for life. We’ve got a few great expansions planned this year. And, you’ll get every one of them for free as a thank you for your early support and patience.

WaveShaper synthesizer for iOS

EG WaveSHAPER is the first synthesizer that lets you create your sound with a finger.

Draw the waveform on the screen or shape a builtin one, mix it with a classic analog oscillator and a sub oscillator and automate all the knobs with 2 drawable LFOs and 2 ENVs

HYBRID WAVESHAPING ENGINE
‘Waveshaping is a synthesis-and-transformation technique that turns simple sounds into complex sounds’

2 wavetables can be designed and morphed to create unique and dynamic sounds under your finger, choosing the morph attack and release; complex spectra can be created waveshaping the oscillator and introducing non linear distortion, rich harmonics and a tube-vacuum behaviour.
The hybrid Waveshaping/Wavetable engine lets you combine a wavetable oscillator with a classic oscillator and a sub oscillator, to add additional sound layers and depth.

LFOs & ENVs
2 Lfo and 2 Envelopes with indipendent time can be assigned to virtually any of the synth parameters. They can also be graphically designed with the touch of your finger or you can choose among the builtin envelopes.

OTHER FEATURES
– Hybrid Wavetable/Waveshaping engine
– Draw your wavetable oscillator with your finger
– 100+ presets (Pad, Lead, Bass and Fx)
– 30+ builtin waveforms to use and modify
– 2 LFOs and 2 ENVs assignable to any parameter

New Korg Electribe Wave iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Korg Electribe Wave For iPad

Korg announced Electribe Wave which is marketed for EDM producers. It comes with a hefty amount of aggressive sounding wavetables and cool motion automation to achieve some wicked Dubstep and Drum and Bass type growls. There aren’t a whole lot of presets (only 25) but there are quite a bit of drum samples. It is not an audio unit nor is does it support IAA. You can not import your own wavetables and samples either perhaps in a future update. There is also a Koass pad type X/Y pad.

The next evolution in music software. Powerful wavetable sound. The next generation ELECTRIBE produces state-of-the-art dance music.

The ELECTRIBE series first appeared in 1999. Since then each generation has inherited the iconic, intuitive operability of the original while incorporating the most up-to-date sounds and styles.

The ease of use, accessibility, sound and musicality of the ELECTRIBE reach new heights in this latest software version which features a powerful wavetable sound source, a “Quick Input” sequencer and a convenient chord pad that allows you to play a chord with one finger. Even if you aren’t a musical virtuoso, with ELECTRIBE Wave you can create state-of-the-art dance music like EDM, Future Bass, and Trap.

• Powerful wavetable sound suitable for the latest in EDM
ELECTRIBE Wave has a sound wavetable featuring sounds widely used in the latest music creation. Unlike a PCM synth, the wavetable allows you to repeatedly play fragments of short waveforms, and change the waveform position during playback. By combining the wavetable (which features a rich variety of presets) with a powerful filter and two modulation units, you can create an infinite number of innovative and sharp sounds that cannot be produced using standard PCM synths. Even without a deep knowledge of synthesis techniques, the carefully selected parameters make it easy to craft your sound.

• Improved user interface for quick composition
The familiar 16-step pad in the ELECTRIBE series enables speedy rhythm production. The ELECTRIBE Wave also features a new keyboard to play chords and scales. Even without musical knowledge, you can have fun making tracks without worrying about wrong notes. The sequencer features Groove, which can be used to breathe life into rhythm parts, as well as a special keyboard to enable smooth step input for synth parts on the graphical user interface.

• Convenient chord pad that allows you to play a chord with one finger
ELECTRIBE Wave features a chord pad that allows you to play chords with one finger. If you use the “Fetch” function, it will automatically extract the chords from the song that you are in in the middle of creating and assign those chords to the pad for fast and easy song creation. You can also easily assign and save your favorite chords. In addition you can use the arpeggiator to create new phrases!

• Motion Sequence records and plays temporal changes in sounds and effects
The ELECTRIBE series introduced a powerful motion sequence function that remembers and reproduces the movements of the knobs. ELECTRIBE Wave now offers this function for the synthesizer/drum parts so you can create a flow of sound overflowing with originality. If you use the built in KAOSS PAD you can change the sound to drastically with a single fingertip, easily storing and reproducing temporal changes. Remember the wave table POSITION to make real time minute changes to the sound performance.

• Song mode can combine patterns into finished songs
Use song mode to create a new track by simply arranging the order of existing patterns. Using only the ELECTRIBE Wave, you can take a song all the way from inspiration to completion. With audio file export, you can send a complete song or individual patterns to your favorite DAW, or upload to services like SoundCloud.
