Additional in-app purchases include sound libraries and banks, synth and effects parameter editors, appearances, arpeggiators, sequences, and scales.

Fourteen synthesis engines along with twenty three audio effects are part of the complete package. All synthesizer, modulation, and effects parameter editing is supported to edit existing sounds, or create your own new ones. User banks can be stored to iCloud, allowing you to access your custom sounds from all of your iOS devices.

Standard MIDI file sequences are supported via the Document folder accessed via iTunes.

Synthesis engines:

AS-1 – analog model with three oscillators, ring modulator, two multimode filters, and portamento
DS-1 – sample playback with two stereo time-stretch oscillators, two multimode filters, and portamento
SP-1 – sample playback for AIFF or wave files
BW-1 – bowed string model with bow, position, and string parameters
CL-1 – clarinet model with breath, reed, mouthpiece, embouchure, and bore parameters
BR-1 – brass model with breath, mouthpiece, embouchure, and bore parameters
FL-1 – flute model with breath, embouchure, and bore parameters
EP-1 – electric piano model with hammer, tine, and pickup parameters
HS-1 – hammered dual string model with hammer, string, and filter parameters
GL-1 – glottal model with oscillator and two eight stage vocal tracts
FM-1 – eight oscillator frequency modulation with variable audio routings
VS-1 – four oscillator sampled vector synthesis
WS-1 – eight oscillator sampled wave sequencing
AS-2 – analog model with five oscillator, ring modulator, three multimode filter, and portamento

All synthesis engines include a complete modulation matrix. Modulation sources include MIDI controllers as well as the envelopes, LFOs, ramps, and random generators. Modulation destinations include volume and pan as well as synthesis engine specific ones such as the AS-1 filter cutoff, or CL-1 breath input. Modulation routings route a source to a destination by an amount with optional tables or smoothing.

  • 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, Acoustica, Xmix, and many more. Subscribe to our RSS feed below to get updated when new apps are posted.
