screen480x480 (1)Muckraker is an abstract audio distortion effect to annihilate your sound. Add a gentle fuzz to your guitar or blast your synth harmonies into brutal white noise. Use with the built-in mic or an external instrument interface, or connect to other compatible music apps such as GarageBand via Inter-App Audio or Audiobus.

Easy does it: a little muckraking goes a long way!

Note: Muckraker starts out muted for a good reason. It can feedback like — well, some very feedbacky thing. If you don’t hear anything, check the mute button.

Harmonics Wheel

Posted by Mikers On August - 28 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen640x640Harmonics Wheel is a complete music theory system as well as being a playable instrument laid out in a logical and easy to play format. It’s based on the harmonic and sub harmonic series, which are the basis of all music. It is a powerful tool for learning the basic relationships between harmonics, roots, chords, scales and the cycle of 4ths and 5ths.

Harmony can be viewed in several ways. Many musicians favor the chord progression method where each harmony within a song is represented by a chord symbol. While this method works it has a major drawback in that it does not show the key modulations of the music. Chords can change as often as every beat but the keys that the music modulates through move much more slowly and can cover several measures. Harmonics Wheel utilizes the “key” approach, which makes improvising much easier.

A common chord substitution method in jazz is to modulate to the complimentary key a flattened fifth away from the main key at will. Harmonics Wheel makes this easy by having both the Main Key and the Complimentary Key available at all times on separate “playbars” that are mirror images of each other. Utilizing the “Harmonics Wheel Pie” key changes can be effected instantaneously while simultaneously playing the “playbars”.

With very little practice one can become adept at playing the “playbars” and “harmonics wheel pie” producing exciting and complex harmonic and melodic structures that would take many years of practice and theory training to accomplish on a traditional keyboard or fretboard.

The record function in “Harmonics Wheel” enables users to keep their compositions and play them back in any order at will instantaneously.

“Harmonics Wheel” includes a Drum Machine and a “Randomizer” that greatly enhance the users compositions and add to the enjoyment and learning capabilities of the app.
– 12 Instruments — Piano, Vibes, Acoustic Guitar, Rhodes, Piano/Strings, Buzz Synth, Bell/Strings, Guitar/Strings, Orchestron, Clavisk, Resoslide, and Harp

Tap Delay

Posted by Mikers On July - 30 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Back in the “old days”, producers and engineers created delay and echo effects using tape machines. Tap Delay combines the warm sound of vintage tape echo machines with a modern, step sequencer-like tapped delay engine which continues the tradition of the tape echo machines into the 21st century.

#### Intro offer 50% off #####

• Compression and Saturation
• Tape hiss
• Tape head bias
• Wow and Flutter (Tape speed instability)
• Smooth speed / delay time changes

Three feedback filters with hipass/lowpass and bandpass characteristic simplify the creation of authentic dub echo effects.

The built-in Limiter allows for endless feedback sounds.

Use live input from any source – Microphone, Guitar, Audiobus and Inter App Audio – or take a song from your iTunes library for processing.


• Multi-tap delay machine
• 24 taps for rhythmic delay effects
• Tape simulation ( Saturation, Noise, Flutter )
• Alias free tape saturation through oversampling.

screen480x480 (11)With Audiobus Remote, transport your Audiobus-compatible music apps’ controls onto a second iPad or iPhone: it’s a second screen for your Audiobus session, powered by Bluetooth LE and Apple’s iBeacon technology.

— Audiobus Remote requires iPad 3, iPad Mini, iPhone 4s, iPod Touch 5th Generation and newer devices —

Start Audiobus Remote for the first time, then simply hold it near your other iPad or iPhone running Audiobus: the two devices will pair immediately, and you’ll see the apps running on your Audiobus device appear on Audiobus Remote’s control surface. You will see all the Audiobus Connection Panel controls you’re used to, including app switching, transport and record controls.

Apps can also define Remote Triggers, providing access to app-specific functions within Audiobus Remote. For example:

– Record or toggle individual loops in Loopy HD.
– Trigger drum samples in DM-1.
– Move between presets in Bias FX and JamUp.
– Change presets and adjust effect controls in Holderness Media’s effects apps including Johnny and Caramel.
– Trigger individual sections in Sector, and switch modes.
– Play a mini version of SoundPrism Electro in Audiobus Remote.

All this on a second screen, while you can stay focused in one app on your main device.

screen480x480 (10)midiLFOs is a MIDI controller app that sends modulation control data to other music apps and external synthesizers. It consists of four independent LFOs that are used to send 7 bit MIDI CC messages in repeating Low Frequency Oscillating patterns. The LFOs can be the various standard shapes (sine, saw, triangle, square, sample and hold) but can also modulate each others amplitude and rate to create even more interesting shapes.
midiLFOs does not make music or sound by itself, it controls other MIDI capable synth apps and devices in your studio. You can use it to modulate the filter cutoff frequency of your favorite synth app, the pan position of the hi hats in a drum machine app, the feedback amount of a delay effect, or the pitch of an external hardware synthesizer. Or you can do all four at the same time.
midiLFOs features:
– Four independent LFOs that send 7-bit MIDI CCs
– Easily configure CoreMIDI port, channel, CC# per LFO
– Easily adjust shape, rate, offset, lag per LFO
– Modulate the rate and amount of an LFO using other LFOs
– Sync LFOs to MIDI clock
– Map trigger, LFO rate, and modulation amount values to incoming MIDI
Designed to be easy to configure and use, midiLFOs gives you a quick to configure and easy to use MIDI LFO controller toy with some nice extra features that also make it a useful pro music studio tool.

Posted by Mikers On July - 4 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

Berlin based inaudiomux_screenshot1die development team, Zerodebug, have made life 10 fold easier for iOS music makers wanting a slick solution for getting their iOS device to talk to their Mac/PC. As the app name’s suggest, midimux and audiomux make it possible to send and receive either MIDI and audio information simply through the use of a standard iOS USB data sync cable, which hasn’t always been the easiest thing to do up until these apps came along.

Only a few months after its release, and v.2 of audiomux has arrived, with a handful of enhancements and new features.

Now it’s easier than ever to integrate your iOS apps into your music production environment, just like you would use a plugin.

Features of v2:

* stream audio from your iDevices to your Mac or Windows PC.
* VST & AU support make it extremely easy to integrate iOS apps directly into your DAW.
* stream from/to and between multiple devices at once, while using up to 8 seperate stereo channels per device.
* IAA & Audiobus integration ensures immediate compatibility with countless iOS music Apps.
* IAA & AB Mixer with controls for volume, mute & monitor.
* Send channels to easily route apps & effects.
* On Mac, a virtual audio device is created for every iDevice connected, making it easy to record incoming audio data wherever you need it.
* low cpu usage – so you can keep using all your apps
* very low latency via USB

To get the complete lowdown on both of these apps, hit the official page – http://www.audiomux.net/
