Ripplemaker

552x414bb (1)Ripplemaker: a West Coast Flavored Modular Synth

The freedom and versatility of a modular synth in a stylish mobile package.

In typical West Coast fashion the available modules, such as complex oscillator, lowpass gate, FM, mathematical utilities and slope generator, are designed for exploration and experimentation. The virtual patch cables will let you take your sound wherever you want to take it, from morphing basslines to evolving generative drones.

A modular playground
Even if you’re not familiar with modulars, wavefolders or control voltage you can dive right in, because all modules are prewired; offering a powerful monosynth without using a single cable. Then whip out the virtual cables and start patching. Ripplemaker is designed for fun – big enough to lose yourself into, yet intuitive enough to not get lost.

Standalone sequencer goodness
Sometimes you want to get away from your DAW and just play. That’s why Ripplemaker, beside being an AU plugin, also comes with a standalone sequencer app that helps you get creative. It has a random pattern generator with scale locks, a realtime probability-based mutation engine and it syncs with your other apps and hardware via Ableton Link or MIDI Clock.

Download the user manual on www.ruismaker.com

Connectivity beyond cables: obviously in a modular synth it’s all about cables. But Ripplemaker takes connectivity to the another level:
– AUv3 (Audio Unit Plugin) Extension for use in iOS DAWs
– Universal design (works on iPad 4+, iPhone 5S+, iPod Touch 6G+)
– CoreMIDI, Virtual MIDI, Bluetooth MIDI,
– Audiobus 3, including AB3 MIDI IN+OUT and State Saving
– Ableton Link
– MIDI Clock Sync
– WAV export, MIDI file export, AU preset export
– Ready for iOS11 Files access

Neo-Soul Keys Studio

Posted by Mikers On September - 21 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

552x414bb (9)Neo-Soul Keys® Studio is a 100% FULL recreation of the desktop version. This version contains every single preset, effect, and functionality as the desktop version, which costs $199.99. In fact, any preset you make on the desktop is 100% compatible to the iOS version. Amazingly enough, we were able to include the full functionality of the popular desktop grade Vintage Keyboard FX Suite, by Overloud™ built into the library.

Description:

Neo-Soul Keys® Studio is the #1 electric piano application for iOS. These are some of the most realistic, organic, and warm sounding electric pianos ever created. We pride ourselves on the intangibles. By intangibles, we mean: grit, dirt, release, bark, mechanics, bumps, clanks, and all of the electromechanical goodness that makes up an electro mechanical piano. Without such great detail, your electric piano can be very sterile, lifeless, and without character. Alternatively, don’t be mistaken–Our EPs can sound as clean and clear as a whistle, but you are always welcome to dial in as much dirt as you want.

When you first play our electric pianos, you will immediately hear a very distinct difference from any other electric piano you’ve played. Terms like warmth, vintage, phat, weighty, and vibey are many of the words often used when describing the sound of Neo-Soul Keys®. When you first play this thing in the studio or live, you will hear your speakers fill the room with a very reminiscent vintage and old school sound of the ’70s. All of this is because we didn’t just sample the DI of our pianos. We used the same vintage and boutique equipment the top studios use, to create the COMPLETE electric piano sound and experience.

See what the late-great George Duke has said about Neo-Soul Keys® and why he chose to use it live, rather than a real electric piano:

“I also incorporated one called [Gospel Musicians] Neo-Soul Suitcase, because that has a little more grit and meat on it for certain types of sounds. There’s another that’s pretty smooth, and it’s also a Scarbee thing but it’s toned down; it doesn’t have a lot of attack. As a matter a fact, I’m using that sound on “Brazilian Love Affair.” When I go into playing more funk, I might use Neo-Soul Keys, which has a lot of attack….” (Keyboard Magazine, Aug. 2013).

What’s New in This Version:

• New Clav.
• 13 New Suitcases.
• 10 New Stage EPs.
• 14 New Wurli EPs (New RARE Wurli 300 (This Model was only
available in Germany and came in a wooden cabinet). It was
based upon the 200, but with added speaker and the same
amp as the 206).
• All EX5 EP Factory presets.
• New Clavinets.
• 22 New EP Timbers.
• 30 New Mechanical FX.
• 12 New FM Tines, and hybrid EPs.

Highlights:

• AUv3
• 4.0 GB Lossless compression (Sample Size 11GB)
• 88 Distinct Electric Piano Timbres
• 60 Dedicated Mechanical FX
• 126 High Quality Presets
• Featuring Overloud’s Vintage Keyboard FX suite integrated and
specifically tweaked for iOS.

• Optimize preset system with better saving options and a search
function
• New vintage modeled Master Limiter with a smooth and transparent
soft limit and tube saturation.
• Keyboard Follow (K.Follow) for Decay
• Each mechanical effect has a dedicated:
* ADSR
* Velocity Curve
* Velocity Amount
* Keyboard Amount
* Gain and Volume

Phosphor 2

Posted by Mikers On September - 21 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

552x414bb (7)Phosphor is an unique instrument modeled on the alphaSyntauri, a vintage digital additive synth from the early 80s. The original alphaSyntauri required an Apple //e to operate, but we’ve gone ahead and eliminated the middle-man, and now you can have this classic digital synth in your iOS device, no 5.25″ floppy drive necessary!

Featuring two additive oscillators (with the original 16 partial complement of the alphaSyntauri, or optionally with 32 or 64 partials), each with its own amp envelope, Phosphor’s topology closely follows the alphaSyntauri, while adding many modern features such as full velocity control, a much more extensive modulation routing system, tempo synced LFOs, a pair of delays, and two monophonic modes. The noise and oscillators are able to work in the original alphaSyntauri “low-resolution” modes, or can be run in modern high-resolutions. Phosphor can accurately model the original sounds of the alphaSyntauri, yet still provide new paths for sonic exploration.

Features

• Two complete oscillator/envelope sections modeled on the original topology of the alphaSyntauri.

• Each set of partials can run in “lo-fi” mode, emulating the gritty digital voicing of original, or in a modern mode for alias-free sines.

• The noise can be either “lo-fi” digital shift-register noise per the original, or modern white noise.

• Two complete delay sections with LP/HP filtering and cross-feedback.

• Two tempo-syncable LFOs with multiple modulation destinations.

• A large complement of presets included that show off the extensive sound generating capabilities of Phosphor, including some famous alphaSyntauri presets directly ported from the original.

• XML preset system, with copy-to-clipboard, for sharing presets in forums and with your friends.

• AudioUnits V3 version for use in all AUv3 hosts, like AudioBus 3, AUM, BeatMaker 3, Cubasis 2, GarageBand, etc.

• Standalone version (with full single-panel UI) with Inter-App Audio and BlueTooth MIDI capability.

PPG Infinite

Posted by Mikers On September - 21 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

552x414bb (3)At the end of the 70s Wolfgang Palm developed wavetable synthesis. This was very successful and used by many synthesizer companies in the 80s and 90s. But this technology has its limitations. The main reason is that all sounds are harmonic. In nature this does not happen very often. Many sounds like a piano string have small offsets from the harmonic frequencies. This is even stronger in sounds like bells or percussion.

Infinite overcomes this limitation.
The frequencies of the overtones created by Infinite can be totally freely defined. So the sounds it produces are totally free in the frequencies of their overtones. This means that each partial wave can have an arbitrary frequency.
Moreover it is possible to move these overtones independently during the duration of a note.
Another important part of most natural sounds is noise. Be it a flute or when a drumstick hits the drumhead – and this all can be reproduced in Infinite.
Furthermore the noise source can be used to modulate the tonal part which results in very powerful effects.
Besides these new digital features, we still have the typical 24db Lowpass filter, 2 VCA with stereo out and effects. All this is controlled by 10 envelopes, 4 LFOs and a modulation matrix.

Key Features:
• New system which can synthesize harmonic and inharmonic sounds
• Morpher – X/Y controller which morphes 5 user selectable sine resources
• Noiser – X/Y controller morphing 3 noise resources and performing modulations
• Molder – acts as a digital filter with any amaginable filter sweeps
• Two detail editor pages for the Sine resources featuring a 3D display
• Import WTS and TCS files from the iPad WaveGenerator and WaveMapper
• Import Phonem utterances and use them in the Infinite Molder
• Versatile matrix system – allowing 16 sources to control 40 parameters
• 10 Envelopes, for control of filter sweeps, waveform, noise and many modulations
• 4 LFOs which can be freely routed via the matrix
• Delay/Reverb effect
• Overdrive/Distortion effect
• A/B compare your edited sounds
• AU extension – run multiple Infinite instances in AU hosts
• IAA – inter-app audio support
• Audiobus 2 with statesaving
• Export audio to AudioShare
• Preset browser with new listing filters
• Directly accessible context help for each module
• Freely configurable schematic keypads
• 4 Keypads play modes: Poly, Mono, Legato and Multitrigger
• 4 MIDI modes: Omni, Poly, Mono, and Voice-Per-Channel

KORG iMono/Poly

Posted by Mikers On September - 21 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

520x293bb (1)The Mono/Poly analog synthesizer appeared in 1981 at the same time as the acclaimed Polysix. Not only was it a fat-sounding four-VCO monophonic synthesizer, it featured a revolutionary design that allowed it to also be used as a four-voice polyphonic synthesizer, which helped cement its legendary status.

The long-awaited “KORG iMono/Poly” iPad/iPhone app completely reproduces all features of the original Mono/Poly. Four VCOs and a rich array of modulation allow a wide range of detailed sound design. New functionality such as two multi-effects units and eight virtual patches are also provided. In addition, the seamless integration that you expect from KORG’s iOS apps will fit perfectly into your music making process. The Mono/Poly has been reborn for today’s world, bringing you a unique and legendary sound.

* Due to differences in CPU speed of iPads / iPhones, iPad 3rd gen/2/iPad mini/iPhone 4s are not supported, only iPad Air/iPhone 5s or later is recommended.

[ Features ]

• Deep 4VCO sound. A complete reproduction of the classic Mono/Poly
The Mono/Poly synthesizer featured four VCOs, a dedicated envelope generator for the VCF, and also sync and cross-modulation, earning it a reputation for its detailed sound-shaping potential and its distinctive character.

• Powerful virtual patches, and the latest presets to catch the scene
Eight virtual patches provide the ultimate expansion of the Mono/Poly’s distinctive sound-design potential. Two multi-effect units are also provided, allowing you to create complex and broad-ranging sounds with complete freedom.

• Quick access to all panels
Although iMono/Poly provides a vast number of parameters, it’s designed with a screen structure that provides quick and seamless access to all of them. With a single tap, you can rotate between the main synth & key assign screen and the virtual patch & effect screen. There’s no need to open individual screens for specific functions, or to move back and forth between them.

• Produce music in conjunction with KORG Gadget
iMono/Poly can be used in conjunction with “KORG Gadget,” the music production DAW app that has won numerous prizes within Japan and around the world. When you install both apps, iMono/Poly appears as the “Montpellier” gadget within KORG Gadget.
