FAC Medusa Compressor For iOS

Compressors are probably the most used audio processors and you surely know what it’s all about and how it can help to control the dynamic range of your audio signal. So let’s get straight to what makes FAC Medusa a new versatile and characterful compressor!

FAC Medusa combines different dynamic processors into a single and easy to use unit, the input signal flows along the following stages:

1) “Pre-amp with tone control and saturation circuit” The input signal is split into three bands of frequencies (Low, Mid and High) according two adjustable crossover points. Setting the level and the saturation amount of each frequency band will definitely make the effect more natural or characterful.

2) “Compression” In addition to the usual controls you may expect, FAC Medusa also provides two types of compression. Downward compression, which is obviously the most common, decreases the level of audio signal above the threshold. And also Upward compression which is less known, despite powerful, and increases the level of audio signal below the threshold. The compression can operate either on the SUM of the frequency bands (L+M+H) or on each frequency band coming from stage 1.

3) “Parallel compression and Brickwall limiter” The master Brickwall limiter is optional and will ensure that the output of stage 2, possibly blended with the original audio signal, remain under control. The limiter comes with threshold and release time controls.

As you have realized FAC Medusa has many faces: gentle, natural, or aggressive and colorful. Choose the one you want and be prepared for an exciting sound design experience. Whether you are a budding music producer or passionate amateur musician in any genre, you will definitely find a happy use for it!

Dark Halloween Soundtracks

Dark Halloween Soundtracks

Soundtrack Loops presents Dark Halloween Soundtracks Horror Musicscapes & SFX. Soundtrack Loops is in the habit of observing Halloween with annual sonic offerings, and they do it in style. Dark Halloween Soundtracks is a wonderful dark ambient cinematic music production resource that fits right in with the best assets in its class. Deep, wide, and lush, these sounds take their time to unspool sustained moments of dread, awe and dark majesty, with an occasional nod toward the bizarre and surreal. The 81 loops are timed in a range of midtempo BPM; many are beatless and long enough to be used in sound beds. The included 19 one shots have truly remarkable 3D sonics that deliver impact sounds with discrete components positioned in space and independently moving through space to create hyper-realistic, wide-open shimmering effects that leave plenty of room for clear dialog and other music and sound elements. Here we’re reminded that certain Soundtrack Loops content occupies a sweet spot between Foley and music, and this in itself is refreshing and inspiring. Similarly, Dark Halloween Soundtracks has a deep musicality built into its sound effects—really useful when it comes to dark ambient soundscapes, subliminal rhythms, and creating well-paced music on soundstages where everything works together with plenty of space to spare. Available in ACIDized .wav and Apple-looped .aiff format for Garageband

Vintage Rack Effects for iOS

Vintage Rack Effects for iOS

Igor Vasiliev announces his latest app with an intro price until the first major update.

VintageRack is a minimalistic and convenient multi-effect application that contains modules realistically simulating notable retro gear from the early digital age with their natural lo-fi and warm aesthetics. Most of the effects in this application have been inspired and based on the principles of actual hardware from the 70s and 80s, which is great for giving the sound of any instrument the nostalgic and emotional mood of old recordings.

This application has a clean and intuitive user interface with a well-considered structure. All controls are located on the main screen, which is divided into seven slots for processing (effect) modules. The first slot contains the module for controlling the input, the last one is for controlling the output. Each of the five slots in between are designed to use one of the effect modules. The input signal passes from the first to the last slot and is then sent to the output.

Each slot has a Master Fader that controls the presence of the effect, and a Mute button that smoothly turns the effect on and off. These controls are available to be assigned to a MIDI controller, or to use as audio unit parameters regardless of the type of module in the slot. Also in each slot, there is a Parameters button that opens a panel of additional parameters for each module. Additional parameters of modules are kept to a minimum and represent the most suitable use cases.

The key idea behind application control is to first adjust the parameters of modules, and then use only the Master Fader to change the presence or depth of the effect and the Mute button to turn it on and off. Everything is geared towards fast and easy use.

Another great feature of VintageRack is the ability to set a lower bit depth of processed signal, typical for early digital devices, both for the entire path and for individual modules. As with these devices, this application simulates pre- and post-processing of the analog signal both before and after the digital circuits with the addition of companders, emphasis and filters, which makes the sound similar to the real devices.

Effect modules:

– Analog-style compressor.
– Three band equalizer typical for mixing consoles.
– Classic and reverse delays with modulation feature.
– Two modules of Chorus simulating two well known devices.
– Two modules of Flanger with different options and tones.
– Two modules of Phaser with various sound character.
– AutoWah with several filters based on envelope generator.
– Combined effect of Tremolo and Vibrato with separate rate.
– Ring modulator with additional modulation of carrier.
– Two types of Fuzz with modulated filters.
– Simulation of one of the early digital reverbs.
– Input slot contains Noise gate and Automatic gain control.
– Output slot contains tape-style saturation and three general types of tonestack.

VintageRack is a universal application for iOS and macOS. It can work on iPhone and iPad as well as Mac / MacBook with M1 chip (and later). VintageRack works on iPhone and iPad standalone, as an Audio Unit or Inter-App Audio module, and supports Audiobus and Ableton Link. On MacOS, VintageRack can works both as a standalone application and as an Audio unit (AUv3) with DAWs and audio unit hosts like Ableton Live, Logic Pro, GarageBand, MainStage, Cockos Reaper, Plogue Bidule, Hosting AU, and other hosts that support AUv3 plugins. All application features are available on iOS and macOS, including MIDI support (with a MIDI learn option) and audio unit parameters. VintageRack has a built-in detailed description of all parameters also available as PDF file on the application site.

GS-201 Tape Delay  for iPad

GS-201 Tape Delay for iPad

Guido Scognamiglio (Genuine Soundware and Instruments) announces GS-201 for the iPad. The legendary Space Echo in your iPad.

Please note: this is an AUv3 plugin that can be used with compatible host Apps.

GS-201 Mark II is the evolution of a project that began in 2007 with the release of the old version of GS-201, which evolved into a mark II version in 2019 and has now landed on the iPad platform. The aim is to capture the magic of the famous Space Echo tape delay and make it available to everyone. It’s not an easy task, but the experience gained over the past 15 years in audio DSP development has helped us achieve a result that can sometimes fool even ourselves.

This iPad version of the GS-201 Mark II contains only the basic controls found on the original Space Echo, with no additional editing parameters. If you want to eliminate tape hiss, if the tape splice glitch is bothering you, if you don’t like wow and flutter, or need host tempo sync, you are definitely looking for a different plug-in. If, on the other hand, you want to relive the experience of dealing with an original Space Echo, with all its pros and cons, you are in the right place.

Trooper synth from Yonac


SPECIAL INTRO PRICE for a limited time!

Thick basses, buttery leads, feathery pads — Trooper is a total synth explosion that crams it all and more in a neat little package. It sounds HUGE, yet tweaks easy. It’s coated in analog “fat,” yet bursts with tonal surprises nestled across its controls. Get ready for an all-out sonic assault, because Trooper is here and it’s our meanest, beastliest, user-friendliest synth yet!

Many of Trooper’s parameters are meant to interact and meld together in novel ways. For example, the oscillator volumes —beyond just acting as mere blend knobs— vary the characteristics of the basic signal depending on how far they are “pushed”. The emphasis is on providing warm and round basic tones with lots of variable harmonic content.

The primary oscillators are backed by an audible LFO that is both a sound source and a wide frequency range modulator. This lets FM-based sounds to combine with traditional waveforms. A pink/white noise generator helps out pads and percussions, and insidiously changes tonality when added in small amounts.

A new filter implementation complements the pugnacity of the signal generators. In its middish settings, the resonance can be characterized as “throaty.” The filter is capable of self-oscillating, and can be controlled via the keyboard. The mated ADSR envelope is shaped to provide tonal ‘immediacy’ and smooth frequency shifts. The amount knob has a wide range that changes the feel and shape of the envelope, especially when pushed above the mid-level.

The output stage features a virtual VCA that imparts tones colloquially termed as “fat”. Extra modulation is provided by a non-audible LFO and a dedicated envelope. The LFO offers numerous wave shapes, BPM syncing, and key tracking. Its output is controllable via the mod wheel, velocity, or aftertouch.

The Esprit parameter helps deploy some of the Trooper “special sauce.” Highly interactive with the stages preceding it, Esprit is known to be handy in tightening up bass tones, and in adding the “je nais se quois” to presets at large. The Get6 parameter is a one-touch ticket to big, mix-filling synth sounds. So whenever you’re lost in an empty mix…it’s got your six.

The arpeggiator inspires rhythms with five algorithms, variable note value, octave range, and gate. The “Texturizer” purveys a wide range of modulation effects that include chorus, flanging, variable comb, resonant delay, and stereo imaging. The BPM-syncable two-tap delay has time and feedback controls per channel, and is tuned a little darker than our usual offerings. Trooper can run in monophonic or polyphonic mode, the latter providing up to 12 voices. Legato is available in either mode.

The robust MIDI implementation also includes MPE support, and the synth is able to I/O MIDI performance data. The “MagTouch” virtual controller lets you to play and record (in AUv3 hosts so enabled) over the MPE protocol. MIDI learn is made easy via a visual interface, and users can save, patch-link, and share MIDI CC maps. Bluetooth MIDI input is also supported.

The AUv3 implementation lets you to run multiple instances of Trooper in DAWs. Trooper’s fluid UI accommodates a wide variety of screen sizes and view configurations. Feature navigation is designed to be nonintrusive so that parameters can be accessed easily. The iPad implementation supports portrait layout, so that pretty much all is on one screen.

Included are over 250 presets that range from deep basses to weird so-and-so’s, stopping by many other sounds along the way. The powerful YPAT2 system helps you save, catalog, and share presets with ease.

The standalone app provides a “Tapedeck” to record, save, and share your ideas on the quick. It features a built-in looper, and a metronome with configurable time signature. The standalone also features tap tempo, and MIDI clock syncing. DSP is in high resolution 64-bit, with native processing at up to 96kHz.
