Soniface is great for creating ambient music. Combine synth sounds, visual patterns & drum rhythms. Get on a sensual journey…

EXPLORATION & EXPRESSION
With Mazetools Soniface you can create various styles of electronic music. Based on common aspects of music production and notation the app guides you towards a visual music composition.

HOW THE GRID WORKS?
The framework of action is a grid that works audiovisual. Each line represents a single note. Shining lines are showing playing tones. Get information about all functions through an integrated manual.

X-Y CONTROLLERS & MULTI-TOUCH
Explore the circular editing interface with its sound and visual effects. Use of multi-touch gestures for altering them.

DYNAMIC SOUND MODULATION
Merge sound and geometric shapes! Draw freely with your finger circuits to modulate the sound wave. Do the same to create automation curves and let the sound effects vary.

RHYTHMICAL MELODIES
Explore the arpeggiator interface and let the grid play a sequence of notes automatically.

GROOVE DRUM SEQUENCER
Tap the drum steps into 3 circles to set bass drums, snares and hi-hats. Adjust each envelope, pitch and noise level and automate them afterwards.

LIVE MODE & SPECIAL VISUALS
Create different patterns to create songs. Add a special kaleidoscope visual to highlight a pattern.

FILE LIBRARY
You can store your creations in different ways. Collect single Mazes or whole sets and add them immediately. Add one set into another and extend your playing time.

Klevgrand Syndt Synthesizer For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Syndt is a high quality polyphonic synthesizer with a lot of possibilities. The oscillator waveform can be morphed between pure sine to pure square and supports alternation of pulse width. Both the shape and pulse width can be modulated by two independent LFOs. Finetuned low pass and high pass filters combined with a separate filter attack setting (optionally based on velocity) makes possibilities to create some raw and interesting sounds.

The additional LFO can be shaped exactly as the oscillator, and optionally controls filters, gain and pitch (using a modulation wheel or just automatcally). This LFO can be synchronized to a AUv3 host.

Globally there’s a nice stereo chorus, ping pong stereo delay (that also can sync to a AUv3 hosts bpm) and EQ.

Key features:

* AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria, AUM etc.
* 70 professionally made presets
* XY pad based oscillator and LFO (PWM on the X axis and morphs between sine and square on the Y axis)
* Independent mini-LFO (sine only) for each axis of the oscillator XY-pad.
* LP / HP filter with resonance
* LP Filter can be velocity sensitive
* LP Filter has an optional attack time
* LFO can affect LP filter, HP filter, gain level and pitch
* LFO has an optional attack time
* LFO can be syncronized with an AUv3 host (AUv3 mode only!)
* Ping pong stereo delay (optionally syncs to host)
* Stereo Chorus
* Three band EQ
* Legato mode with glide speed parameter
* Pitch bend range

Important: Syndt in stand-alone mode does not support IAA or MIDI. You can try it out using the keyboard at the bottom, but that’s it. We recommend using Syndt with AUv3 compatible hosts.

OBS! Syndt oversamples the signal and uses sophisticated DSP features which makes it consume quite some CPU. An iPad AIR 2 or better is recommended if you’re planning to use many voices simultaneously.

Inspired by early electronic instruments such as the Ondes Martenot and the Theremin, Ribbons (formerly “Ondes”) emulates the fluid playing style of those classic instruments with an interface and synthesis engine firmly grounded in the present day.

Whether you’re gliding through melodies & chord changes or creating dense polyphonic sci-fi soundscapes, Ribbons is an instrument unlike any you’ve played before.

What’s New in Version 1.2
• Ondes is now “Ribbons.”
• Super relaxing new color scheme.

Use the hold function to sustain notes while you take an epic solo on top.
Vertical movement can be mapped to volume and synthesizer parameters, adding dynamic possibilities to your music.
More polyphony than you have fingers!
Adjustable keyboard range and size.
Guidelines help you play in key. Choose from common scale types in any key or create your own.
Alternate tuning systems let you explore the world of microtonal sound!

•••• Unique Synthesis Engine ••••

Morphing wavetable oscillator with five wavetable sets.
Swarm oscillators! Two extra oscillators can be detuned and lag behind to create new textures.
Wavetable modulation sources include Y-Axis, sine wave, noise, circle, and ADSR envelope.
Resonant low pass filter.
Filter modulation sources include ADSR envelope, sine wave, and Y-axis.
Amplifier section with master volume, Y-axis control, and ADSR envelope.
Y-axis can be mapped to control the rate and depth of wavetable and filter LFOs.

Large selection of reverb types with adjustable amount.
Delay effect adjustable level, feedback, time and filter.

•••• MIDI ••••

Use Ribbons as a MIDI controller to control your favorite software and hardware synths. Map each touch to a unique MIDI Port/ Channel for polyphonic pitch bend. Because of Ribbons’ unique pitch bend capabilities, it isn’t like other controllers, so make sure to read the instructions to learn about how to get the best results.

•••• Inter-App Audio ••••

Record directly to Garageband and other audio apps on your iPad using Inter-App Audio or Audiobus.
Built-in Inter-App Audio transport allows you to control a host app’s play, record, and rewind buttons.
