Modular Synthesizer

Posted by Mikers On September - 17 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (2)Modular, the ultimate synthesizer that will revolutionize your sound.

• High fidelity virtual analog synthesis using band limited oscillators and oversampled filters
• Audiobus and background audio modes
• CoreMIDI control with external devices or internal sequencers
• Beautifully rendered graphics
• Dynamic workspace with intuitive navigation
• 10 octave keyboard with classically styled arpeggiator
• Extensive in app help with detailed module descriptions and guides
• Record and export live performance to Soundcloud, Sonoma Audio Copy, email and iTunes file sharing

Modular is a powerful sound design tool which allows you to build your own custom synthesizer by connecting different sound modules together. By separating each synthesis process, modules can be connected in any way. You are no longer limited to fixed synthesizer design, you are now in full control of your sound. This is the beauty and power of modular synthesis. Whether you are a professional musician or a beginner who just loves sound, modular offers you an incredibly powerful synthesizer experience.

Modular looks, acts, and sounds like a hardware modular synthesizer to give you features that musicians want such as pulse width modulation, oscillator sync, 4 pole ladder filters, and 1v/oct filter tracking. Traditional modular systems are expensive and out of reach for the average artist. Modular is here to bridge that gap and allow everyone the opportunity to use these powerful synthesizers.

Modular provides modules in every category for free. Enough to build a vast array of sounds. Buy only the modules you need or get the bundle which includes all modules including future modules. Owning a module means you use as many as can fit in the modular rack. You want to build a monster 6 oscillator synth? You can.

What makes modular special is the audio and visual experience you have with it. Beautifully minimal menu systems and interface along with ultra realistic synthesizer graphics are just the beginning. The real beauty is not what you see, but what you hear. Pristine and punchy oscillators that sound great, even at the extreme ends of the frequency spectrum. It starts with band limited oscillators. Not just traditional methods of band limiting, but band limiting that enables each note you play to have the maximum number of harmonics without distorting.

Every detail of the audio has been analyzed to provide you the most amazing sound possible such as buttery smooth filter sweeps and resonance so stable you can use the filter as an oscillator!

Modular goes a step further with connectivity and supports Audiobus, Soundcloud, CoreMIDI, as well as Sonoma Audio Copy so that your music making workflow is streamlined and integrated.

Arctic Pro Synthesizer / Vocoder inbound

Posted by Mikers On September - 17 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

Arctic Pro Synthesizer / Vocoder is a modern subtractive synthesizer. It does not aim to accurately model or re-create vintage synths of yesteryear. Instead Arctic Pro offers the contemporary synthesist a rude, rough, bold and tough palette of sound to get stuck into. Including two massively fat HyperOscillators, dual filters, and easy to re-order master effects. While the Vocoder, used in conjunction with a suitable microphone, adds an extra dimension to your musical performance.

HyperOscillatorsarcticpro_02

Combine two HyperOscillators and one Sub Oscillator for some seriously fat sounds. Layer up to 8 oscillators in unison to create very thick and powerful tones. Spread detune and Mix these separate oscillators in real-time. More than just a “SuperSaw” – it’s also a Super-square and Super-triangle.

Powerful Presets The factory presets have been exclusively designed by legendary sound designer John ‘Skippy’ Lehmkuhl. John has worked as a professional sound designer since 1988 for Korg – making patches, combinations, drum kits as well as creating the sample data for almost every synth Korg has released since the M1. If you have owned one of these historic synthesizers you have heard John’s presets.

SampleTank gets all stringy

Posted by Mikers On August - 31 - 2013 ADD COMMENTS

IK Multimedia, the leader in mobile music-creation apps and accessories for iOS devices is pleased to announce a new version of SampleTank, the premium virtual instrument and sound module for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The new version gives mobile musicians access to the world-class orchestral and choir sounds of Miroslav Philharmonik – Mobile Edition, plus adds sound-library management, so musicians can easily add, delete and re-download complete collections of instrument categories, as needed.

The Miroslav Philharmonik – Mobile Edition for the SampleTank mobile app is available as an in-app purchase, and is derived from the insanely popular Miroslav Philharmonik standalone app and DAW plug-in for Mac/PC that’s used in studios around the world. These famous orchestral instrument sounds and textures have been heard in hundreds of Hollywood movie scores, and in compositions from some of the top performing pros like Serj Tankian (System of a Down), J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Sean Kingston and Lana Del Rey, to name a few. Miroslav Philharmonik features instruments that were beautifully recorded at the Dvorák Symphony Hall in Prague by Miroslav Vitous with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. These sounds have a texture, warmth, and beauty that is considered “the standard”, and is unrivalled in the virtual instrument world.

The Miroslav Philharmonik – Mobile Edition for SampleTank includes 100 orchestral sounds and textures with multiple instrument performance styles, including 5 orchestral ensembles, 39 string instrument sounds (violin, viola, contrabass, cello and harp), 15 brass instrument sounds (trumpet, trombone, French horn and tuba), 12 woodwind instrument sounds (flute, bass flute, piccolo, clarinet, bass clarinet, oboe and bassoon), 4 vocal choir ensembles, 1 cathedral organ sound, 1 celesta sound set, 10 orchestral synth pads, and 13 orchestral percussion sounds.

The version 1.6 update of SampleTank for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch also gives musicians a sound-management feature that provides the ability to add or delete sound-library collections with a single click, thus freeing up space as needed on their device for recordings. If a user deletes a purchased library and later wishes to reinstall it, it can be easily accomplished via the in-app restore feature. The version 1.6 update of SampleTank also adds stunningly clear iPad Retina Display graphic support the newer iPad models. The Miroslav Philharmonik Mobile Edition – along with future downloadable sound collections – requires iOS 6 or later, although the app itself will still work fine with iOS 5.

SampleTank for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is a complete professional-quality virtual instrument and sound workstation that allows musicians to use a portable keyboard/MIDI controller like iRig KEYS, or any MIDI keyboard controller with a MIDI interface like iRig MIDI, to create and perform with studio-quality instruments and sounds on the go. SampleTank is also Audiobus compatible, so it can be used with other mobile recording and DAW applications like GarageBand, AmpliTube and VocaLive for creating music on the go, anytime and everywhere. SampleTank is compatible with iPhone 3GS or later, iPod touch 4G or later, and any iPad model.

Pricing and Availability
SampleTank 1.6 for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch is available now as a free update on the App Store. The Miroslav Philharmonik Collection is available as an in-app purchase for $19.99/€17.99. Additional instrument collections will also be available soon via in-app purchase.
