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;

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Magix Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
