Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,


FieldScaper – Sound warp field recorder and scape constructor.

Igor Vasiliev maker of the amazing SoundScaper app has just announced a new app called FieldScaper a sound manipulation and experimentation app for altering field recordings on the fly.

Advanced field recorder combined with sound warp engine with a collection of ready to use dynamic presets for iPad and iPhone. Discover new ways to create and construct unusual and exciting sounds from any environmental audio recordings or samples recorded from other apps through Inter-App audio or Audiobus.

The main purpose of this advanced app is to shorten the way from recording samples to create spectacular soundscapes and in addition to use this app as glitch loop based effect in the real-time.

The FieldScaper consists of two main parts. The first part is the field recorder with special options for different ways of record environmental sound from microphone or record other sound sources. The second part is the scaper sound engine that with using dynamic presets can easily transform the most ordinary samples into something absolutely different. These parts connect with each other into one whole but you can use recorder or scaper separately.

The scaper sound engine contains three sample-based oscillators each with filters, delay, distortion and spatial mixer. The most of parameters can be assigned on individual low-frequency oscillators. With using the “Main effect” fader you can control several these parameters in different ranges. These features give you the abilty to create continuously changing, breaking and glitching sound forms and loop-based effects from ordinary samples of synths, guitars, voices or everyday sounds of the environment.

FieldScaper supports complete MIDI control for all faders, knobs and many buttons. You can change the parameters of oscillators, filters, delays and mixer by using any external MIDI controller or MIDI apps like sequencers. With the MIDI controllers this app becomes very comfortable to use at live performance.

Free Tascam PCM Recorder For iPhone

Free Tascam PCM Recorder For iPhone, iPod, and iPad

TASCAM PCM Recorder is a free stereo recorder for iOS devices. It supports up to 12 hours of recording, using the built-in microphone or connected USB devices like the TASCAM iM2 stereo microphone. EQ, limiting, Soundcloud support and more make this a full-featured professional recorder.


Recording is now possible in iOS 5.x when the device is locked (because of the auto-lock function or pressing the On/Off Sleep/Wake Button).
In order to prevent unexpected feedback noise, the speaker button is automatically turned OFF when recording or in recording standby. In the previous version, the speaker button stayed OFF after recording (or standby) ended, but in this version, the speaker button is turned ON again if it was ON beforehand.
Operation has been confirmed with the TASCAM iM2 Stereo Microphone and TASCAM iU2 Audio/MIDI Interface.
In order to protect the recorded data, recording will automatically stop before the iOS device stops when the remaining battery charge becomes less than about 15%. In addition, if recording is started when the remaining battery charge is near 15%, a low battery warning appears on screen.

New Features:

Automatic detection of stereo input sources such as the TASCAM iM2
Mono L mode added
Smooth ramp up/down at the start/end of a recording
New Limiter matches TASCAM DR hand held recorders
Input/Output level sliders now go up to +12dB, with no zipper noise
More accurate meters
