FLUX:FX play

Posted by Mikers On December - 2 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen640x640‘FLUX:FX play’ is a creative multi-effect processor app for the iPhone and iPod that lets you ‘play’ your effects, designed in conjunction with acclaimed musician Adrian Belew. Built on the same award-winning audio platform as the master iPad app, ‘FLUX:FX play’ is perfect for creative musicians and sound designers to manipulate an audio signal into something entirely new, both in the studio or on stage. Guitar, vocals, bass, synth, drums, DJ setup, violin… basically ANY instrument or sound source can be processed in real-time by ‘FLUX:FX play’, and there are 282 performance presets to choose from.

Important note, PLEASE READ: the main difference between ‘FLUX:FX’ and ‘FLUX:FX play’ is that the iPhone version does not contain the full deep editing features for the effects and sequencer. It CAN however share the exact same performance presets, and so you can in fact create custom presets on your iPad version and import them into ‘FLUX:FX play’ via Dropbox. This app is compatible with iPhone 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus and iPod Touch 6.

Some key features of ‘FLUX:FX play’ –

TRULY CREATIVE EFFECTS: 31 studio-quality effects built-in. Up to 5 are chained together within the many performance presets for maximum aural impact. 282 performance presets are included in the app, ranging from subtle, transparent & traditional through to ‘way out there’, obnoxious & destructive.

POWERFUL SEQUENCER: A step sequencer is programmed into many of the performance presets, adding a completely new and fluid dimension to the sound.

TRANSPARENT INTERFACE DESIGN: ‘FLUX:FX play’ has a beautiful, minimalist interface with easy-to-use controls that are MADE to be touched. And swiped, and dragged, and tapped. No fake road-worn pedal graphics or tiny dials here.

MADE BY EXPERTS – conceived and created via the combined talents of guitarist extraordinaire Adrian Belew, audio software developers ElephantCandy and mobile specialists MOBGEN°.

PLAYS WITH EVERYTHING – Audiobus compatibility, Inter-App Audio compatibility, MIDI, virtually all the audio interfaces.

COMPLEX SOUND, RIDICULOUSLY EASY TO USE – chopping, shaping, crushing and looping – ‘FLUX:FX play’ can take you from subtle modulating echoes through to wrecking-ball destruction, all with a swipe of a finger.

ULTRA LOW LATENCY – ‘FLUX:FX play’ features very low-latency settings to give truly professional performance capabilities.

There are 31 individual effect blocks that come built-in to the ‘FLUX:FX play’ engine:
Plus an optional master LIMITER.

screen480x480 (1)Advanced field recorder combined with a sound warp engine and 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.

Field recorder:

● Loop based mode for recording and processing in real-time.
● Auto start record when input signal appears.
● Auto stop record when silence or by time.
● Record timer in seconds or measures.
● Monitoring input signal with different modes.
● Automatic gain control of input signal.
● Predefined filters for input.
● Noise gate on the input.

Scaper sound engine:

● Three sample-based oscillators with complete processing.
● Low-pass, high-pass and band-pass filters with resonance.
● Two range delay with smooth time change and additional modes.
● Spatial mixer/reverb with side and distance.
● Wide range of oscillator clock speed change with reverse.
● Distortion effect based on masking sample address (like circuit bending).
● Distortion effect consisting of lofi, overload, noise and ring modulation.
● Individual LFO for variable parameters of oscillators and filters.
● The “Main effect” function for control several parameters simultaneously.
● Presets for save all parameters of oscillator and filters.

Additional features:

● Predefined presets with wide range of effects.
● Convenient file manager with groups of files by name or date.
● Complete MIDI control for all faders, knobs and other modes.
● Possibility to download additional samples in different audio formats.
● Uploading samples thru Web access, clipboard, from another app and iTunes.
● Different color schemes available for the user interface.
● Detailed application description.
● Supports Audiobus with “State Saving” feature.

Esspresso – professional de-esser

Posted by Mikers On October - 8 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (4)This audio effect is an advanced de-esser with an intuitive user interface. The uniqueness of Esspresso is that the detection frequency range isn’t coupled with the suppressors frequency range. That means you can listen to a specific frequency and compress another one, which is often what you’ll want from a professional de-esser. With a fast and accurate frequency response view, you will easily get full control over annoying S-sounds that ruin the mix.

Noteworthy features:

• Audiobus 2 compatible (works in iOS9)
• Inter app audio compatible (IAA)
• Detector sensitivity gain
• Visual reduction RMS
• Visual detector RMS
• Suppressor can work as allpass, bandpass and highpass
• Load / Save presets
• Documentation

Note! Esspresso consumes quite a bit of CPU power and iPad 4 or later is recommended.

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
