Pitch Drift Free Cassette Vibrato Effect
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Free vibrato app for iOS

Pitch Drift is a free AUv3 cassette style vibrato effect plugin by Baby Audio that introduces organic-sounding pitch fluctuations. It can range from subtle instabilities that make your instruments sound more natural and less sterile – to intense pitch drifting that will make your tracks clearly out of tune.

Controls:
Pitch Drift lets you control the depth and speed of the pitch fluctuations in a simple interface. It is powered by the “Drift” algorithm in Baby Audio’s Super VHS plugin and offers the same natural and pleasing fluctuation effect.

Inspired by real instruments:
One of the appeals of acoustic instruments is that they are never 100% in tune 100% of the time. These subtle pitch fluctuations compound when you bring multiple instruments together in a mix, making the music sound richer and more dynamic.

However, in the computer-era this concept is sometimes lost. Pitch Drift makes it fast and easy to break the spell of digital pitch perfection and get your tracks to vibrate a little more. It generally works best at subtle levels on sustained tonal instruments or entire mix busses. As a rule of thumb, the less sustained your source is, the faster you want the speed parameter to be set.

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!

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 Echo For iPad

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.

TimeVerb-X Type 4 Reverb App
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

TimeReverb-X

TimeVerb-X is a new plugin from GSi that combines GSi’s “classic” Type4 spring reverb, first released in 2008, and a new algorithmic digital reverb. The “Type4” spring reverb emulation was originally inspired by an Accutronics reverb tank type 4, like those used in classic Hammond organs of the A100 series, also used in many famous electric guitar amplifiers. The digital reverb, instead, was first developed for the GSi Gemini sound module, but was also included in some Crumar hardware instruments. Both effects have been slightly expanded and further improved for the release of TimeVerb-X, as the spring reverb now features a self-oscillating feedback decay adjustment and a stereo width knob, and the digital reverb includes the early reflections section that was missing in the original project. Both reverbs put together make up a great sound when working in parallel, and create some interesting atmospheres when working in series.

TimeVerb-X app

TimeVerb-X app

TimeVerb-X main features:

– Spring reverb “Type 4” with feedback and stereo operation
– Digital reverb with pre-delay, early reflections and room size adjustment
– Built-in programmer with unlimited number of Programs (comes with 16 factory Programs)
– Integrated user’s manual
– Comes with AUv3 extension
