screen480x480 (3)Figooroo is a simple yet powerful editor for Figure songs. It’s able to import, modify and export .figure files. It doesn’t produce sound, but it allows you to:

• open up to 4* songs at once
• copy instruments, patterns, tweaks (defaults & motions), mixer levels between songs
• join songs together
• shift songs with or without wrapping
• resize songs by trimming/repeating bars or shrinking/stretching them
• convert rhythms to notes
• email songs or open them in other apps at any time

*There are 2 slots (A & B) with each one able to hold 2 songs.

By switching from one slot to another and alternating between shift, resize, copy and join, you can combine songs in many ways.

Converting rhythms is a very useful function allowing you to alternate between different rhythms in the same song and also slowdown/speed-up a song keeping the rhythm intact.

8 bar songs are too short for you? In Figure you can simulate a 16 bar song by halving the tempo, but the rhythms are also slowed down, making them more or less useless. Now, with Figoroo you can take two 8 bar songs recorded at normal tempo (even with different rhythms), resize each of them to 4 bars and join them together. All you have to do is open the new song in Figure and halve its tempo.

Wanna record those perfect notes in Figure, but the song is too long and you have to wait yet another 30 seconds for another chance? Why not open the song in Figooroo, split it into pieces, open a piece in Figure, record the notes and then go back to Figooroo to join the pieces together.

Recording really really fast arpeggios is not easy in Figure, but Figooroo can help you achieve that. Record a song in Figure and open it in Figooroo to shrink it to fewer bars, thus increasing its playback speed.

You can also loop certain sections of the song and do many other things that you’ll discover along the way.

MonoStereo Synthesizer

Posted by Mikers On February - 5 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480MonoStereo Synthesizer is a free full-featured analog mono synth with oscillator panning.

Why another mono synth?
Well, because I thought it would be fun to make one! This one does have one thing you rarely find, and that’s oscillator panning. With this you can create some nice effects using an LFO for the pan and also create wide stereo lead sounds easily!

The synth is completely free with no in-apps. If you feel the need to pay something for it, go see a gig by a local band! If that doesn’t cover it, buy their t-shirt! (or their CD if you have one of those CD-players we used to have 3 years ago)

* Minimalistic size, fast loading time and CoreMIDI Support!
* 3 Oscillators with customisable waveform (sine, square, saw), phase, level, detune and pan
* Lowpass and Highpass filters
* 2 LFO’s with customisable targets from filter values to oscillator panning and detune
* Filter and Amp Envelopes
* Portamento (almost named that ‘Glide’ but came to my senses. Portamento is portamento!)
* Delay and Chorus effects (very basic, I know)
* A few presets
* Saving and loading your own sounds
* Virtual keyboard

What’s New in Version 1.1

– New completely updated interface!
* All sliders replaced with knobs
* New visual style
* Smaller version of the keyboard available always at the bottom of the screen!

Motion Synth

Posted by Mikers On January - 11 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

AUUG Motion Synth - standalone synth - 269

This is one of the coolest controllers I’ve seen for awhile. Although the app is free, it’s the physical controller that you’re gonna want to get your hands on, literally!

The AUUG Motion Synth transforms your iPhone or iPod touch into a new kind of musical instrument.

Your iPhone or iPod touch becomes an expressive controller that lets you play notes via touch and shape their sound through motion.

Select “Settings” > “Help / Upgrade” > “Quick Start Guide” in the Motion Synth App for instructions on how to get set-up to make sound.

Play any sound:

The AUUG Motion Synth tracks your movements and screen touches to ‘play’ other iOS sound apps, giving you access to a vast array of sounds and effects.

You can also play external devices like hardware synths or vocal harmonizers as well as control audio or visual software on a laptop (via wifi or cabled connections).

Use the Motion Synth App by itself or with a Motion Synth Grip:

The Motion Synth App has two modes:

1) Single-key mode: This Motion Synth App mode allows you to quickly engage with motion-based music control, and includes setup instructions for motion-controlling GarageBand (while GarageBand runs in ‘background mode’ on your iPhone/iPod touch). Note: Garageband is now free for most iOS users.

Select “Settings” > “Help / Upgrade” > “Quick Start Guide” in the Motion Synth App to get started using the Motion Synth with Garageband.

2) Multi-key mode: This Motion Synth App mode is designed to work with the AUUG Motion Synth Grip: a physical holder that securely attaches your iPhone or iPod touch to your hand, thereby improving the dexterity and accuracy with which you can trigger notes via the touch screen.

CZ Touch

Posted by Mikers On January - 6 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (13)CZ Touch is a patch editor for the Casio CZ series of synthesizers. If you have a CZ-101, CZ-1000, or CZ-5000 then this is the editor for you! CZ Touch gives you touch-based control over all of the voice parameters on your CZ synthesizer. Just make a change on the screen, and the change is instantly sent to your synthesizer.

CZ Touch especially shines in giving you direct, easy control over the 8-stage envelopes on your synth. No more menu diving to create a complex envelope.
Here are some more features:

* Save patches to your iOS device, with names
* Share/export your patches via email: patches are saved as sysex files that can be transmitted to your synthesizer by a sysex program.
* Copy/Paste envelopes between DCO, DCW, and DCA
* Create random patches
* Copy the current patch from your synth to your iOS device, for further editing

Use this app either with a MIDI adapter for your iOS device, or via a wireless MIDI connection to your Mac or PC, with your CZ synthesizer connected to your Mac or PC via MIDI.

* A Casio CZ synthesizer (CZ-101, CZ-1000, or CZ-5000)
* A MIDI adapter for your iOS device, OR a Mac or PC connected to your CZ via MIDI and a wi-fi connection between your Mac or PC and your iOS device.

NOTE: This app does NOT make any sound! It’s just an editor for your Casio CZ synthesizer. If you don’t have a Casio CZ synthesizer, this app won’t do anything useful for you.

This app is not affiliated or endorsed by Casio. It’s just an app I made to fill a need!

screen480x480 (1)New concept of electric music instrument/sequencer.
A tube synth consists of several key wave forms which are smoothly connected.
Its shape is formed by key waves which are converted in polar-coordinates.

– adjustable Interval duration of each key wave.
– adjustable pitch and amplitude at each key wave.
– Variety of interpolation methods to form waves.
– Adding harmonics and subharmonics with weight.
– Adding reverb.

– Audio bus or Inter-App Audio is NOT implemented yet (under construction)
– No midi input or output.

Some waveform with rapid changes in sound pressure could be damaging to your ears at high amplitudes or for long periods. Please avoid using earphones or headphones when editing waveforms.

screen480x480 (16)Phase84 is an extremely capable synthesizer and features over 110 presets, containing all sorts of basses, leads, pads, bell tones, sweeps, atmospheric sounds, pseudo-realistic tones, and more. While you don’t need to know much about synthesizers to get a lot out of Phase84, experienced synth tweakers will be thrilled at the sheer variety of unique sounds that can be produced with this incredibly versatile synth.

So What’s Phase84 All About?

Phase84 is what’s known as a Phase Distortion synthesizer. This form of waveshaping synthesis has its roots in Casio’s brilliant CZ line of digital synthesizers from the 80s. It is designed to have the warmth of a subtractive (analog) synthesizer, yet be capable of the squelchy tones and sharp attacks of an FM synth. Phase84 in particular can create warm pads, glitchy sounds, dirty basses, filthy sweeps, screaming leads, and anything in-between.

For those familiar with the typical Moog-like (or iMini-like!) synthesis, think of the “shaper” as being synonymous with “brightness” or “filter cutoff”.

More than 100 presets.
MIDI support.
inter-App Audio support.
Advanced Keyboard section.
Expressive Perform Mode with Groove Gate.
Tabletop Ready App.
Precision Knob mode.
Phat, naturalistic unison feature for super thick pads and sweeps.
Oscillator Section: 9 Params, 2 General-Purpose Oscillators, 1 Formant Oscillator.
Mix Section: 8 Params including Delay Amount and Pulse Width.
Envelope Section: Amplitude and Shaper Envelopes. Fully visualized and interactive ADSR plus special Fade Param.
Delay/Filter Section: Stereo delay with loss modeling and a punchy overdriven analog-style filter.
3 LFOs: More flexible than your average LFO, this has 4 waveforms, optional delay and repeat count, and can go into the audible frequency range.
