– new Wow and Flutter slider emulates subtle pitch shifts that occur on vintage tape echoes due to slight mechanical tape speed fluctuations, worn tape, etc.

To access Wow and Flutter, touch and hold the BLUE control ring for 0.5 second. Touch and hold again to hide the panel of sliders.

Process live audio from nearly any input source, including Audiobus compatible apps, the built in mic, or a professional audio interface such as the Apogee Jam, Apogee MIC, iRig, and more.

Record and automate your effect parameter movements using the Motion Looper. Use the sound on sound looper to create layered soundscapes, capture samples, process and resample for creative sound design, and more. Use the “scratch loopers” to record or import an audio file and scratch it by manipulating the playback speed/direction by dragging. Export and share loops using AudioCopy/Paste, or share them directly to the AudioShare file management app. Connect your device to iTunes on your Mac/PC to access your recordings and loops in iTunes File Sharing.

Sugar Bytes Turnado

!!! introductory price !!!

Turnado is a revolutionary multi-effect tool, crafted especially for massive real-time audio manipulation. It combines unique and dynamic effects with the most intuitive and immediate control you can imagine. Just turn it on and crank it up. Take it to the stage and unleash Turnado’s true power. With instant access to eight effects and immediate control over key parameters, Turnado is guaranteed to cause devastation on the dance floor, shredding beats and crunking breaks to insane proportions.

Features at a Glance:
– 4 XY-Pads to control 2 Effects simultaneously (X,Y)
– Integrated Player (iTunes File Sharing, Music Library, Factory Loops)
– Integrated Recorder (div. Optionen: Start/Stop/Sync/Länge)
– Live Modus (Inputs & Outputs selectable)
– Audiobus Support (Sender & Filter)
– Audiocopy™ / Audiopaste™
– Full Midi Support (Virtual, Network, Extern)
– Midi Clock Sync
– Jack iOS Support
– Zoom

The idea is simple:
Turn a knob and the effect is on.
Turn the knob further to adjust effect parameters and apply modulations.
Turn the knob down and the effect is off.

With its instantaneous, one-knob, multi-parameter modulation features, Turnado will lay waste to the audio landscape. Giving you the power to crunch, chop, twist, mash and elevate your music to new levels, Turnado will have you creating wicked new sounds that will blow any crowd away.

Unlocking the power of your MIDI controller each effect requires only one knob to control it. Underneath this simplicity lies a matrix of effect parameters and modulation engines, all controlled by the main knob. This control matrix provides serious depth to the plugin and gives you the ability to create original and truly unique effect programs.

If the power of one-knob action still doesn’t rock your boat, the awesome “Dictator” mode will sink your battleship. It allows you to animate all the main knobs and run that animation with just one fader. That’s one fader, controlling up to 8 different effects, with potentially hundreds of parameter changes!

Turnado’s primary focus is on beat manipulation, so you will find lots of loopers, slicers and grain tools in the rack. Alongside these beat-mashing effects are an arsenal of distortions and filters as well as first-class delays and reverbs. With extensive modulation possibilities each effect can produce millions of unbelievable variations that can be morphed and twisted into something new every time you tweak those knobs.
Turnado will inspire you again and again, delivering completely new variations of your original sounds and grooves every time, so what are you waiting for…turn it on.

Turnado is available for $19.99
