iProphet

Posted by Mikers On October - 1 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

arturia-iprophet-uiiProphet recreates the unique sound of the classic Sequential Circuits Prophet VS synthesizer. The Prophet VS’s rareness and classic digital sound make it a mainstay for those who can find them and a seemingly out or reach dream for those who cannot. The sound is purely classic crisp digital sound that easily stands on its own, but at the same time is the perfect compliment to the sound of analog synthesizers. It brings the crystaline vintage sound of four digital oscillators and allows sculpting them using a creamy & warm multimode filter. You can morph the sound of the 4 oscillators using the joystick or the vector mode and the vector envelope.

The iProphet is great for evolving pads, sharp leads and super punchy digital bass sounds and comes with over 500 presets created by some of todays best sound designers. You can also swap presets between iProphet and Arturia’s Prophet V synthesizer which allows you to work on the iPAD and finish in the DAW of your choice.

iProphet supports Core MIDI, interapp-audio as well as Audiobus technologies for perfect integration.

iProphet is also a Tabletop Ready app. You can use it exclusively or along side your favorite Tabletop instruments.

Dazibao

Posted by Mikers On October - 1 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (18)Dazibao is a polyphonic synthesizer programmed by an innovative interface : you create several tones, then you arrange them on several time lines. Dazibao will create automatically the corresponding wavetables and envelopes for filters, volume, pitch, vibrato, pan and so on. Add an organ tone, then a string tone, and Dazibao will produce the correct evolutive sound. Four modes help to create easily and quickly incredible sound evolutions this way.

Dazibao for iPad also includes an analog style drum box and bass line. Mix one of the seven types of noises with a sine oscillator, and you’ll create easily hundreds «TR like» or «Simmons like» sounds of percussions, including toms, snares drums, cymbals and bells. The bass synthesizer is an analog style one. The sequencer helps to create any kind of rhythms, from 2 to 64 steps, with any subdivision of the beat from 1/1 to 1/8.

At the end, in concert, you’ll load sessions. A session includes patches for the polyphonic synthesizer, and sequences. So, you’ll have immediately under your fingers several incredibles sounds added to drums and bass sequences to create a full and large sound when you play live.

Creating sequences which include variations of tones, or large pads with sounds traveling in the stereo space, or patches with a different sound evolution for each key has never been so easy : Dazibao offers many innovations in the user’s interface which will help you to create quickly and easily the most complex patches, or the most experimental drums patterns. You won’t miss matrix, sliders or jacks! You’ll just extend the capabilities of your musical imagination.

iSymphonic Orchestra

Posted by Mikers On August - 19 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (11)

This one isn’t exactly the cheapest music making app around, but if the teaser video below is any indication of the on board sounds, then this is your one-stop shop for an authentic sounding orchestra!

The ultimate orchestra sound app for sophisticated musicians, directed by Kurt Ader, designed as professional sound module for your iPad by connecting an external MIDI keyboard, using the Apple USB camera adapter or another adapter supported by Apple.¹

Listen to the demo video on our product website!

This app supports Apple’s “Inter-App Audio” System (requires iOS 7 or higher) and the “JACK Audio Connection Kit” (up to iOS 6.1.3) for audio & MIDI connections from/to other audio apps!

iSymphonic Orchestra was designed with the goal to deliver you superb, extremely realistic and stunning orchestra sounds, instantly with the first key being pressed by you on your MIDI keyboard. Just select a sound and you are ready for your live performance or for a boost of creativity while composing new songs. The sounds used in this app were explicitly recorded to fulfill these requirements and involved several months of recording and post processing under supervision of Kurt Ader and included a variety of innovative, new recording techniques. So far these sounds were only available to very few, famous movie composers. Now they are finally available for the first time to everybody. The supreme quality of these sounds, combined with the unique way they were recorded and assembled, gives us confidence that you haven’t heard anything comparable as of to date, even not on Mac or PC.

Sounds:
- 1. Orchestra Strings Spiccato & Legato
- 2. Orchestra Strings Slow 1
- 3. Chamber Arco Strings
- 4. Legato Orchestra Strings 1
- 5. Full Sordino Strings 1
- 6. Legato Orchestra

- App can keep running in the background, so you can play on your keyboard while e.g. using Safari or another app to display scores or surfing the Internet.
- Hermode Tuning: Makes the sound more brilliant by controlling the pitch of the notes in multivoiced music to better frequency ratios than with fixed tuning. This dynamic tuning imitates the tuning behavior of well educated musicians of i.e. orchestras and choirs.
- Supports Apple’s “IAA” system for audio & MIDI streaming between other apps (iOS 7 or higher).
- Supports “JACK Audio Connection Kit” for audio & MIDI streaming between other apps (up to iOS 6.1.3).
