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.

audiomux v.2 arrives

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/

Here’s a demo of the apps running

screen480x480 (26)iThereal for iOS is a multi-function Inter-App Audio App, virtual Theremin and MIDI controller, and an expanded Theremin instrument that allows for more modern Theremin gestures.

In many senses it is a classic Theremin but it has the freedom to incorporate newer techniques for playing and interfacing that were unavailable in its predecessor.

With iThereal iOS, the original Theremin’s interface of proximity to the instrument’s antennae has been replaced with a sophisticated use of touch gesturing and the ability to use an iOS device’s internal Gyroscope to influence pitch and volume.

Using iThereal as a MIDI controller allows the performer to incorporate gesturing and Gyroscope functions to control almost any voice available through Inter-App Audio Hosts (such as GarageBand). Connect your iOS device through Wi-Fi or MIDI cable to send raw MIDI data using iThereal to a device that reads MIDI.

-Turn on ‘Vibrato’ in real time to color your sound without disturbing your musical decisions, choosing both depth and rate of modulation.
-A new feature we call ‘Discrete Portamento’ gives the effect of a real-time sequencer whose sequence is modified by the choice of your notes.
-Using GarageBand your instrument can be modified to include effects such as Reverb, Echo, etc.
-A thoroughly customizable User Interface.

iThereal iOS frees the musician to explore a sonic tapestry of unlimited possibilities.

screen480x480 (25)apeDelay – Implements up to 2048 Stereo Spectral Delay lines with Feedback. The algorithm is based on the STFT (i.e. Short Time Fourier Transform) analysis/re-synthesis. The audio signal is converted in abstract ‘Frequency Domain’, where is manipulated and transformed back again in ‘Time Domain’. You can draw three shapes for the Times, Feedbacks and Panning. This is achieved from the multi sliders, who provide a great tool to manage the huge numbers of parameters. You can also benefit of more advanced spectral manipulations like the Spectral Blur, Granulate, Bins Decimator and Freeze.

– Audiobus and Inter-App Audio support (sender and FX)
– Built In Stereo Sampler with varispeed and scrubbing

i-jingle webcaster

Posted by Mikers On June - 25 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (24)iJingle WebCaster is the latest and greatest addition to the iJingle product family.

For this new App we’ve taken iJingle PRO as the basis and added extensive PLAYLIST and SHOW PLANNING capabilities, creating iJingle WebCaster, to be used by Broadcasters, Podcasters and Live Sound Engineers.

If you’re On-air or engineer Live sound…

iJingle WebCaster is a soundboard style jingle player, great for any type of on-air or live situation. The extensive arranger and playlist creation features allow you to prepare parts of your show in advance or even create them on the fly. Select them from the preset bar and press play, pause or skip ahead.

If you’re preparing a Show or Podcast…

iJingle WebCaster’s Show Planning allows you to pre-plan your Show or Podcast in great detail. Use the arranger to set the total time for your show, add music items (jingle, fx and/or intro music) and non-music items (presentation, interview, etc.). When you’re ready to record your show, just push play and off you go. The time line informs you about what’s playing, what’s coming and even shows you documents and websites you’ve linked to show items, right on the main screen.

If you’re pre-recording a radio show or podcast…

iJingle WebCaster has voice-tracking. This means that you can create a complete show, right on your iPad. Plan your show by adding audio elements to the arranger and then record your voice on the segments you need. Easily edit your voice bits and tweak the arrangement and save the whole show as one file, ready to be distributed.
