If you’re looking for a granulator then Moonshine AU could be just what you’re after

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Mon 12 Feb 2018 11:41 pm

Luis Felipe Vieira Damiani has brought us quite a few unusual AUv3 plugins for iOS. Apps like Nimbus AU, Ringabell AU, and Csound on iOS app RunloopSound. Now he’s brought another AUv3, Moonshine AU.

This is a stereo granulator effect that works both as an AUv3 plugin, and as a standalone iOS app. If you’re not familar with the term, granulation is the process of taking tiny snapshots of your sound at random deviations from a certain position in time, then combining those grains to form anything from rhythmic patterns to dense and involving clouds of sound.

The effect can also add some shimmer to a vocal track, act as an out-of-the-box guitar delay, or be used to transform synth sounds into the most uncanny and very interesting pads.

Moonshine AU features 13 parameters per channel, including four parameters to automate the interval at which grains are triggered, in a total massive 26 parameters to tweak and make totally original sounds. All that within the comfort of your preferred digital audio workstation on iOS.

Moonshine AU is a universal app and costs $5.99:

Aleksandar Mlazev brings us another new FX app, here’s REMAKE a multiband effect

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Mon 12 Feb 2018 11:08 pm

From prolific app creator Aleksandar Mlazev comes another iOS FX app that works as a stand alone or as an AUv3 plugin in a host of your choice. This latest creation from Aleksandar is Remake.

This new app is a multi-band effect designed for a rich and crisp sound. The input signal is split into 3 parts. Then resonances are added to the low frequencies (under 100Hz) and at the same time two harmonic voices are added to the mid frequencies only.

One unison voice and one on perfect fifth interval. These 2 voices have their own positions in the stereo field. Then the original mids are mixed with the additional voices and the signal goes through warm and gentle overdrive / gain booster effect with a gain control. The high frequencies of the sound are sent through slight vibrato effect. All these signals are finally mixed on the output to form the result sound.

The effect can work as a stand alone app and as an audio unit AUV3 plug-in.

The app features these controls:

  • Bass Vibe – amount of resonances on the low frequencies
  • Mid Gain – gain on the midshipmen’s
  • Voices – level of the additional mid voices
  • Reverb

Remake is available on the app store and costs $1.99:

GMR to Extend Commercial Radio Interim Licenses Until September 30, 2018

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Mon 12 Feb 2018 6:26 pm

On Friday, the Radio Music License Committee issued a press release that states that Global Music Rights (“GMR”), the new performing rights organization that collects royalties for the public performance of songs written by a number of popular songwriters (including Bruce Springsteen, members of the Eagles, Pharrell Williams and others) has agreed to extend their interim license for the performance of their music by commercial radio stations until September 30, 2018. The notice says that GMR will be contacting stations that signed their previous extension (through March 30 – see our article here) about such an extension. If you don’t hear from GMR, the RMLC suggests that you reach out to them about this extension.

As we have written before (see our articles here and here), GMR and the RMLC are in litigation over whether or not the rates set by GMR should be subject to some sort of antitrust review, as are the rates set by ASCAP, BMI and even SESAC (see our article here on the SESAC rates). In the interim, there is no license to play the GMR music outside the Interim license offered to all commercial stations, or individually negotiated licenses with the company. Commercial stations that play GMR music should either have a license or should discuss carefully with counsel their potential options and liabilities if they continue to play GMR music. Do not ignore the potential liability as, under Copyright law, there are substantial “statutory damages” of up to $150,000 per song, for infringement. Noncommercial stations are not covered by this license being offered by GMR to RMLC members, as public performance royalties for noncommercial broadcasting are set by the Copyright Royalty Board (see our article here). Those stations should also discuss their obligations for royalties under the CRB decision with their counsel.

LPTV and TV Translator Displacement Window Announced – April 10 through May 15

Delivered... David Oxenford | Scene | Mon 12 Feb 2018 6:21 pm

The FCC on Friday issued a Public Notice announcing that LPTV stations and TV translators displaced by the Incentive auction and repacking of the TV band will have an opportunity to file for replacement channels for the ones on which they currently operate in a window that will run from April 10 through May 15.  This is for LPTV and TV translator stations that operated on channels above channel 37, which will no longer be part of the TV band after the post-Incentive auction repacking of TV stations is complete. Also filing will be LPTV stations and TV translators that operate on channels in the core TV band on which full-power stations have been relocated as part of the post-auction repacking. Stations planning to file in this window also need to take into account improvement applications filed by full-power stations in the windows held during the latter part of 2017 (see our articles here and here on those windows). The Public Notice offers access to an FCC tool that will help LPTV and translator station operators locate available channels in the area in which they operate.

The Public Notice for the most part simply announces the dates, as the FCC had promised 60 days prior notice of the opening of the window.  The procedures to be followed during the window were set out in a Public Notice released last May, which we summarized here. So if you operate translators or LPTV stations which were precluded by the repacking, start preparing now for the window.

Miss Nord Modular? This hack runs your patches as free software

Delivered... Peter Kirn | Scene | Mon 12 Feb 2018 5:26 pm

The Nord Modular G2 is one of electronic music’s most beloved departed pieces of gear. Now it gets a second lease on life, for free – with Csound.

You’d be forgiven for not knowing this happened. The work was published as an academic paper in Finland last June, authored by three Russian engineers – one of whom works on nuclear physics research, no less. (It’s not the right image, but if you want to imagine something involving submarines, go for it. That’s where I want my next sound studio, inside a decommissioned nuclear sub from the USSR, sort of Thomas Dolby meets Hunt for Red October. But I digress.)

Anyway, Gleb Rogozinsky, Mihail Chesnokov, and Eugene Cherny, all of St. Petersburg, had a terrific idea. They chose to simulate the behavior of the Nord Modular G2 synth itself, and translate its patch files into use as Csound – the powerful, elegant free software that has a lineage to the first computer synth.

The upshot: patches (including those you found on the Web) now work on any computer, Mac, Windows, Linux, and Linux machines like Raspberry Pi – for free. And the graphical editor that lets you create Nord Modular patches just became a peculiar Nord-specific editor for Csound. (Okay, there are other visual editors for Csound, but that’s still cool, and the editor is still available for Mac and Windows free from the original manufacturer, Clavia.)

And best of all, if you have patches you created on the Nord Modular, now they’ll work for all eternity – or, rather, at least as long as human civilization lasts and keeps making computers, as I’m pretty sure Csound will remain with us for that. Let’s hope that’s… not a short period of time, of course.

Read the paper here:

pch2csd: an application for converting Nord Modular G2 patches
into Csound code
[Proceedings of the 14th Sound and Music Computing Conference]

Then give it a go – all you need is a machine that runs Python and copy-paste a couple of lines of code:

Nord say they have no plans to bring back the hardware, but check the updates software on their site:

FAC Chorus 1.3 brings more features to this excellent chorus

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Mon 12 Feb 2018 12:05 am

If you don’t know FAC Chorus, it’s a quite versatile chorus effect emulation designed to simulate the characteristics of classic chorus modules with the flexibility of customising the parameters of the main components involved in the signal path, all wrapped up in a handy iOS app.

FAC Chorus works by the effect being built upon two individual delay line paths controlled by common parameters. The behaviour of each delay signal path is defined by the chorus type parameter. Thick type means warm characters and emulates the behaviour of the BBD. Clean type, as the name says, provides a cleaner sound with a larger modulation.

FAC Chorus is suitable for any situation requiring chorus effects and can go from subtle to drastic changes, the factory presets provide an overview of the sonic panel you can obtain.

Here’s what’s new in version 1.3:

  • Addition of a new BBD character (THICK is now noise free)
  • Support of the view configuration management
  • Input source button has been moved to the left bottom corner (main app only)
  • Minor improvements and bug fixes

FAC Chorus costs $3.99 on the app store now
