LiquidSonics Mobile Convolution is a true-stereo reverb processor for use with Audiobus and Inter-App Audio hosts. It allows impulse responses to be stretched, cropped and envelopes to be applied for shaping the sound of a reverb in a very natural and musical way. A configurable pre-delay provides the ability to push a reverb back into a sound-field or to creatively add rhythmic delay effects.
With the high, low and peaking audio filters you can make adjustments to a space’s frequency spectrum, rolling off lows, highs or accentuating specific frequencies of interest with the variable gain and width control of the peak filter.
Stereo and true stereo impulse responses up to 90 seconds long can be loaded with very low input/output delay (latency). Mobile Convolution uses the same great LiquidSonics convolution engine that powers the desktop plug-ins which are used in both home and professional studios worldwide every day.
A collection of true stereo impulse responses is provided, and external impulse responses can be added quickly and easily via Open-In… support in apps like Mail, Safari and Dropbox, or downloaded directly from within the app.
Internal preset save and recall is provided, as well as Audiobus state-save recall support.
SPACEVIBE – is a multi-oscillator phase distortion module with delay and rotary effects. With up to 4 seconds of delay time, you can craft some interesting soundscapes. Sounds vary from clean tones with that 70’s sci-fi feel to distorted sonic chaos.
– Create music by moving your fingers around the Frequency and Noise graphs.
– Control space and vibe knobs directly from the Frequency and Noise graphs for increased control and sound possibilities.
– Adjust Frequency and Noise maximum values by pinching the Frequency and Noise graphs.
– Record your performances and share them via e-mail.

iLift:REMIX — Slow down music, change the key, and loop Developer: Rosano Coutinho
Make the comparison with your own ears. This music player makes it easy to independently change your music’s key and playing speed and remove or extract specified sounds, while preserving an overwhelming audio quality that cannot be matched.
Recommended for: ・ Musical instrument practice. ・ Making karaoke tracks. ・ Musical transcription. ・ Creating audio tracks for dance practice. ・ Learning foreign languages by listening to podcasts. ・ Efficiently gathering information from podcasts. ・ Audio-typing comfortably.
With usual audio equipment, large changes to key and playing speed typically result in a heavy degradation of the audio quality. However, by using our company’s “PhaseGear” technology, this app succeeds in reducing audio degradation to its utmost minimum. The result is surprisingly natural-sounding audio.
============== [ Main Features ] ==============
▼ Change playing speed [Time stretch] Change the playing speed without affecting the key (0.00x – 4.00x).
▼ Change key [Pitch shift] Change the key without affecting the playing speed (±24.00 semitones).
▼ Change voice [Formant] Apply changes to voices (±24.00). Includes the [Correction] function which restrains voice alterations caused by changing the key.
▼ Remove / extract sounds [Audio masking] Visualize the audio and remove / pick out sound from a specified band. Obtain exceptional audio quality thanks to a new technology preventing mixing in rhythm sound. * Depending on the musical structure, it might not be possible to obtain the desired results.
▼ Analyze audio and display chords [Musical scale analysis] Analyzes music as it plays and displays the musical scale on a keyboard. Also allows on-screen display of inferred chords.
▼ Output the modified audio [Export (*Add-on)] Output the audio data file with modified key, sound masking, etc. The exported file can also be used with a PC or other device. * This function must be purchased as an add-on.
I am totally blow away by this new app! It may not be affordable for everyone, but if you work with microphones in a professional studio/live stage environment on a daily basis, this would surely be an indespensible tool!… If you’ve purchased it, I’d love to hear your thoughts on how the app runs and what are the pros and cons…..Read on for the official blurb -
Arapolarmic is an innovative tool for the professional audio industry for monitoring the directivity of microphones and have a database with its technical characteristics (miclibrary) always with you.
Arapolarmic makes possible for the first time the visualization of the microphone and its polar pattern, integrated within its audio environment (microphone set and sound sources) using Augmented Reality technology, providing visual reinforcement in making decisions for positioning of microphones on any set.
Arapolarmic shows the polar pattern of the microphone models that are included in the miclibrary of your device in real time. The position and orientation of the microphone is captured through the camera of your iPad, which is then overlapped over its polar pattern, allowing the user to view through the screen its orientation and position. This feature permits the user to see immediately the polar pattern of the microphone relative to the sound sources.
It is a very useful tool for teaching audio, recording studios, microphone sales, sound engineers, music producers, musicians…
The system integrates a database with a library of microphones. The data sheet of each microphone’s model is quickly available without an internet connection. The fast access to the data makes Arapolarmic a reference tool for querying the technical specifications of professional microphones.
The new versions, also improve recognition system computer vision system, will include new features and new microphone models, also the most requested by users Arapolarmic, expanding the library of microphones and, therefore, the tool.
Requirements of the computer vision system: Lighting: - It is recommended to work with indirect or diffused light. - The system operates under variable lighting conditions (cold, warm, strong, faint…) but a certain amount of light is necessary for the camera to detect the microphone. - Avoid working under backlight conditions. - Direct light to some microphone’s body models might cause reflections that could confuse the computer vision system (CVS). - Conditions of fluorescent flashing light might cause less reliable tracking process (CVS). In this case, enhancing of the lighting conditions might improve the process.
Matching process - Arapolarmic requires some user interaction in the matching process. The proper matching of the virtual and real microphones before initializing the process of automatic matching is determinant in keeping the polar pattern aligned and on the right position. This process requires certain level of practice from the user.
The first Arapolarmic version requires working with soft movements while slowly moving away.

GliderVerb is a “Reverberator with Glissandos” simulating a room gradually changing its shape. It is an expanded version of an algorithm created by James McCartney for his Supercollider 2 programming language.! The original algorithm had no user-variable parameters: this device adds a series of parameters to create a wide palette of effects; from evolving reverberations to granular disintegration to smooth resonances.!

What is the convolution reverb?
Briefly, convolution reverb is based on a process that digitally ‘captures’ the reverb characteristics of another reverb effects unit or the reverb response of a real acoustic space. It is based on the mathematical convolution operation, and uses a pre-recorded audio sample of the impulse response of the device or space being modeled. The process of convolution multiplies each sample of the audio to be processed (reverberated) with the samples in the impulse response file.
● More than 200 samples of factory presets from different devices. ● High-quality and fast convolution algorithm with 64 bit operations. ● Wide range of reverberation types such as plates, springs, halls, rooms, etc. ● Preset hotkeys with possibility to save current sample and all its parameters. ● Convenient choice sample by device name, by reverb type or in complete list. ● All processing parameters are stored for each sample. ● Pre/post parametric equalizer with cut-off filters. ● Possibility to construct the envelope (like ADSR) for device sample. ● Adjusting stereo width and modulation for reverb output. ● Additional mode ‘reverb only output’ for use with mixing consoles. ● Possibility to upload additional samples in different audio formats. ● Uploading samples through Web access, audio clipboard, from another app and iTunes. ● Detailed application description with an overview of famous reverb equipment. ● Different color schemes available for the user interface.
