S-Modular is the latest modular synth for iOS, but the first semi-modular

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Wed 18 Oct 2017 9:30 pm

Let’s face it, modular is very popular and it has been for quite a while now. In the mobile world we’ve had a few modular synths and some really spectacular ones in that group. Now we add a new app to the list. S-Modular is a semi modular synthesizer for your iPad. I’m not sure that I’ve seen an app that quite described itself that way before. S-Modular comes from the developer behind PRFORM, WubSynth and Synth Automata, although they have many more in their portfolio.

According to the developer:

S-Modular has been designed to have everything on one screen to make patching quick and easy. Drag from one jack port to another to make a connection, tap a plugged port to change the wires color instantly.

S-Modular has a unique and vintage sound quality, reminiscent of synthesizers from the 70s, warm and rich in character.

Here’s a quick view of the app’s features

  • Audiobus 3
  • IAA (Inter-App Audio)
  • 2x oscillators
  • 24db/oct ladder filter
  • Resonant hi-pass and low-pass filter
  • 2x LFO
  • 4 step cv sequencer
  • 4 track Mixer
  • Audio and cv spliter
  • 2x AHR envelope generators
  • Delay

I have to say that it looks really interesting and I’m quite tempted to go take a look and see what it’s like.

S-Modular costs just $3.99 on the app store now:

And finally here’s what it sounds like …

sequencism is a new sketchbook for creating short and simple tracks

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Tue 17 Oct 2017 11:18 pm

It’s always good to welcome a new app to the mobile music community, especially one that claims to be exactly for making ‘short and simple’ pieces of music. sequencism calls itself a music sketchbook tool, which is nice idea. According to its creator, the app is designed to provide a traditional user interface of track and piano roll editors, while taking advantage of the touch-screen capabilities of the iPad. It also includes other helper tools, such as chord helper tracks, which is a nice feature.

It’s also worth noting that apparently the main goal of this app is to work as a sketchbook, it is not recommended to use sequencism to produce complex songs or to play songs live on stage. Which is a fair warning I guess.

sequencism features:

• Simple track mixer and visual mixer (volume, pan)
• Multitrack editor: MIDI instrument tracks, chord helper tracks
• Support for SF2* and AUv3 instruments (*lightweight SF2 files only)
• AUv3 Effects
• Piano roll editor: add, move, copy notes within blocks
• MIDI keyboard, supports multiple scales, including user-defined scales
• Support for diatonic and chromatic chords
• Automatic transposing when changing chords or scales
• Supports Audiobus 3 and Ableton Link
• Support for MIDI keyboards, including Bluetooth keyboards
• Export to MIDI

Planned features for the future

• Undo, Redo
• Automation
• Import MIDI files (improve existing support)

AUv3 instruments requires iPad Mini 2, iPad 4 or newer.

sequencism is free on the app store:

AC Sabre 1.1.1 brings Audiobus 3 to this excellent iPhone performance instrument

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Tue 17 Oct 2017 10:45 pm

I’m not sure that I’ve actually managed to talk about AC Sabre since I’ve been at CDM, so now is a good time to introduce it ahead of talking about what’s new in the app. AC Sabre is essentially a full performance instrument in your iPhone. You can use it to control almost anything. The app is a wireless MIDI instrument and motion controller for anyone who’s interested
in electronic music production.

AC Sabre reads your movements with the built in gyroscope and accelerometer and translates them into musical actions. It lets you pluck invisible strings in the air while controlling up to 7 additional parameters, intuitively with your movements, via MIDI CC messages.

In the latest version there’s support for Audiobus 3, together with automatic Bluetooth advertising, zero-tap, auto-connection to iPad via new free “AC Central” app. Audiobus state saving both locally and to iPad via AC Central. Hands free mode now works when AC Sabre is in background.

So all in all a fairly substantial update. In there is mention of AC Central, the iPad companion app that’s free on the app store. AC Central is a free auto-connection hub for the AC Sabre Motion MIDI Instrument. AC Central takes the hassle out of getting connected to your favourite synthesizers, samples and other sound machines. Plus, combined with Audiobus 3 (separate purchase, well worth it!), you can save and recall your complex multi-app setups and MIDI mappings with the touch of a button…

expressionPad is a new free Synth/Sampler instrument, that was better than I expected

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Mon 16 Oct 2017 10:12 pm

Free apps can be great. Let me start with that, they can be great. Not all free apps are great, and sometimes they can hide expensive IAPs that you need to get even the most basic functionality. So I’m always slightly sceptical about a new app that I know very little about. So when I decided to download expressionPad I didn’t have high expectations at all. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I got the app open. To begin with the app’s interface seemed way to small to work on an iPhone 6s in portrait mode, but when you switch to landscape it becomes much easier to use entirely. As such I will be giving the app a bit more room on my iPhone and a bit more time to explore it.

So you might be interested to know just what this app is all about. Here’s the app’s description:

expressionPad is a new kind of musical instrument. Continuous multi-touch support means you can control pitch bend, dynamics, and modulation with each touch, even as you change notes.

We’ve created a flexible and intuitive interface so you can focus on music. Watch our video and see for yourself!

Tune your expressionPad in fourths, fifths, or in guitar tunings such as standard or Open C.

expressionPad features a built-in polyphonic synthesizer/sampler so you can start making music right away. Experience the flexibility of polyphonic portamento — an electronic music first!

Connect to your music studio via Core MIDI, Apple’s inter-app music protocol. With expressionPad, you can play Reason, Ableton Live, Logic, Garage Band, and Logic more expressively than ever!

A clean interface, a flexible synthesizer/sampler, and lightning-fast MIDI response. Push your musical ideas to new limits with expressionPad.

Turn ideas into songs, with a new feature in Ampify’s Groovebox app

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Thu 12 Oct 2017 11:47 am

The Groovebox app for iPhone and iPad already gave you a way of starting musical ideas quickly. A new update might help you make finished songs, too.

Since Ampify started out with their first app ‘Blocs Wave’, they’ve been doing everything that they can to make creating music on mobile a reality for a wider audience, and I think they’re doing a pretty good job of it. Arguably their app range contains some of the most popular entry level apps for getting going with making music. LaunchPad is an excellent example, and I’ve already mentioned Blocs Wave, which is equally accessible.

Their latest app, Groovebox, had a great start. It distinguished itself in a very important way. It enabled users to create music rapidly by giving them the ability to create semi-random patterns. That might sound simple, but it’s actually really important. It can give you the start without having to figuratively stare at a blank sheet of paper. It’s also really unique.

Now Ampify have taken Groovebox even further. They’ve added sections to the app so that you can create whole songs using Groovebox. ‘Song Sections’ help you build and arrange ideas quickly and easily. You can use instruments and patterns to make ideas, then easily structure your track by adding, moving and deleting sections with a swipe of your finger. On iPad a full screen section view shows you all your sounds. On iPhone a simpler section view shows you just what you need without cluttering up your screen.

New Features

  • Build bigger tracks with section on iPad and iPhone.
  • Sections can be added, reordered and removed easily
  • Switch sections at any time to Jam with your ideas
  • Simple iPhone section view removes the complexity of song arranging.
  • On iPad a full section view shows you all your sounds.
  • iPhone a simple section view shows you just what you need without cluttering up your screen.

Groovebox is still a free app on the store with a Pro IAP at $4.99, £4.99, €5.49. Each instrument also has a soundpack store. Soundpacks are either Drumpacks (with samples & patterns), or Presetpacks (with presets & patterns) costing $1.99, £1.99, €2.29 each.

Klevgränd brings advanced audio noise reduction to iOS with Brusfri

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Wed 11 Oct 2017 11:25 pm

Klevgränd has brought us a very wide range of iOS apps and Brusfri is yet another good example of this. Apparently Brusfri means “Noise free” in Swedish. Which I did not know before this.

Klevgränd describes Brusfri as

A highly advanced audio noise reducer, packed into a simple and straight-forward interface. It is very well suited for cleaning up noisy audio recordings, while retaining sound quality. Unlike many other noise reducers on the market, Brusfri doesn’t mess with audio phasing to suppress noise (a technique that often comes with audible side effects). Instead, multiple fine-tuned gates are used to silence unwanted noise.

Of course noise reduction can be useful in lots of situations, especially in the iOS worlds with mics that aren’t perhaps as good as they could be. One very useful feature in Brusfri is its “Learn” function. Press “Learn” during a couple of seconds of isolated noise to record a “profile” for noise. You could open Brusfri in any AUv3 compatible host, find a region in the recording that only contains noise and play it. Tap and hold the “LEARN” button for a short while (a second will be enough).
When the LEARN button is released, Brusfri starts reducing noise.

There are also parameters that affect the noise reduction algorithm:

  • ATK / THRS / REL (Attack Time / Threshold / Release Time)
  • Threshold – basically determines how much noise to be removed. A lower value means more reduction
  • Attack and Release sets the time it will take for the reducer to start working.
  • EDGE: Controls the reduction aggressivity. A lower value gives a smoother reduction.
  • HPF: Reduces low frequencies.
  • HIGH: Compensates high frequencies by boosting them.

NOTE! Brusfri is CPU intensive and iPhone 6S / iPad AIR 2 or better is recommended. We highly recommend freezing/bouncing tracks to reduce CPU usage. Brusfri is currently AUv3 only, which means it won’t work in stand alone mode. It must be used as a plugin

Brusfri costs $7.99 on the app store now (includes a 33% launch discount)

Audio Damage brings Axon 2 drum synth to iOS, complete with neural network sequencing

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Tue 10 Oct 2017 11:27 pm

With only a very recent iOS presence Audio Damage has already made a significant mark on the mobile community. Axon 2 is the 10th app that Audio Damage has brought to the platform in what seems to me to be a very short period of time.

As for the app itself it actually looks completely up my street. I’m a big fan of drum synths, and Axon 2 is a lot more than that. It’s a drum synth driven by artificial intelligence. Axon uses a modified artificial neural network as a sequencer, and has seven FM-based percussion voices, that are in effect a single 18-operator FM voice.

Audio Damage goes on to say:

If that sounds weird, you ain’t seen nothing yet. It is surprisingly intuitive once you get the knack of it, and is capable of all-new, complex rhythms that repeat in surprising ways. It often gets referenced as a “random sequence generator,” but there is nothing random in Axon; it is entirely determinative.

The sequencer features seven “neurons” that trigger a voice and send a pulse when they have received a predetermined number of pulses. You can wire the output of any neuron to the input of any other (with built-in loop detection to prevent runaway feedback), and in this manner pre-program the artificial neural network without having to go through a “learning” phase.

The seven individual drum voices, each triggered by its attendant neuron, are 2-operator FM voices in a configuration to best make percussion sounds, with additional FM and AM busses that all voices send to and receive from. Each voice has a HPF, distortion circuit, and white noise generator to provide a full range of percussion-oriented voicing individually, while interacting with each other in new and unique ways.


• Artificial Neural Network sequencer features seven neurons, and is easily programmed to create strange new repeating rhythms.

• Seven FM percussion voices that also buss together to create a single monolithic complex percussion synthesizer.

• Full mixer with pan, level, mute, and solo on each voice.

• Built-in stereo delay with X/Y pad control over feedback and filter frequency, for live playability.

• MIDI input, including Bluetooth MIDI, for driving Axon from DAW and hardware sequencers, and Virtual MIDI Output (standalone only) for driving other software with the Axon sequencer.

• Inter-App Audio, including transport synchronization, in standalone mode.

• Internal transport for non-synchronized playback.

• Resizable vector-based user interface.

• Drawn reciprocation dingle arm to reduce sinusoidal depleneration.

• XML-based cross-platform, human-readable preset system, with copy/paste, for easy transferring of your own presets and third-party offerings.

Please Note: This application will work fine on an iPad Mini, but the user interface may be difficult to use due to the size.

I have to say that Axon 2 looks pretty amazing, so I expect I’ll be spending a fair amount of time with it in the coming weeks.

QuantumSequencer approaches composition with an interactive creation process

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Tue 10 Oct 2017 11:02 pm

Or at least that’s what it says it does. The app comes from a developer who brought us midiSequencer back in 2014. The new app, which shows a striking similarity (at least in terms of its UI) to midiSequencer claims a very different approach to making or composing music. According to the developer:

Quantum is a performance midi sequencer which approaches music composition with an interactive creation processes – sometimes referred to as ‘noodling’

Where pattern or piano-role sequencers are good for music forms (intro/verse/chorus etc) or grid entry, Quantum’s approach is built around the idea of a step being the focus – think of the step as a single note or chord written on a music sheet then add a lot of extra notation (like probability of playing or ornamentation say).

These highly detailed steps are then aligned into sequences (think melodies) that loop. You can have any length up to 64, but these can be further split into 4 sub-sequences that have their own set of sequencer parameters (like tempo, play direction, transpose etc).

To enter step parameters such as note pitch, velocity, gated length etc, 16 general faders are available which allow you to draw, drag, select copy/paste, inc/dec & link together to edit values. These are also midi learnable (midi cc or nrpn) to allow you to use control surfaces or midi controllers.

To aid you with faster control Quantum has loop actions which you can program in to carry out tasks when a sequence loops – e.g. transpose, randomise, start or load another sequence etc.

With up to 24 sequences playing Quantum introduces a mixer page allowing you to blend midi velocities. Built on the MidiSequencer engine, midi FX, devices & Controllers are now possible per sequence.

So why would Quantum be good for your setup? There are many midi enabled IOS & hardware synths that produce exotic timbres if you send them fast & varied midi controls that you just would not hear with keyboard playing or slow tempo tunes. Also, Quantum, embraces experimentation in melody creation and by copy/pasting allowing quick setup of arpeggios & counterpoint tunes that you can create & manipulate on the fly!

note : This app sends midi information – you need to use it in conjunction with any midi enabled iOS synth app (e.g. Sunrizer) to hear sounds

Now this could be just the app you’re looking for if you are looking around for a new MIDI sequencer. But if you are searching you should probably also take a look at modStep at the very least, and also Genome MIDI sequencer too.

SynthScaper 1.2 takes experimentation even further

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Sun 8 Oct 2017 9:21 pm

SynthScaper is one of a number of more experimental sound apps from iMusicAlbum. As with the other apps in this series like FieldScaper and SoundScaper, each update brings a range of new experimental possibilities for you. This version of SynthScaper supports loop points and note/pitch info in wav files that gives you possibility to use a lot of ready loops from third-party samples libraries.

What’s more it includes new scenes, presets and samples, which is always useful in my opinion, with having an idea of how things work inside an app, especially in more experimental apps. It also supports loop points and note info in wav files. A low pass ladder filter and low pass distortion filter have been added in this version, as have mode 12/24 db for LP, HP, BP, BS filters.
There’s now a parameter to “Smooth” for LP and HP filters, and also a new parameter “Drive” for BP and BS filters.

There’s a few more new bits and pieces, here’s a quick run down …

  • Addition working mode for envelope generator.
  • MIDI control for sustain pedal.
  • MIDI controls for changing scenes.
  • Improved pitch / modifier on screen keyboard.
  • Built-in description updated.

And of course, no update would be complete without the obligatory range of bugs being fixed.

SynthScaper is an unusual application that’s great if you’re into more experimental sounds. If that’s you, then you should probably also check out FieldScaper and SoundScaper too, as I think they might be right up your street too.

SynthScaper costs $14.99 on the app store now:

Symphony Pro 5 is taking notation to the next level in iOS

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Sun 8 Oct 2017 5:30 pm

Notation has been around for a while on iOS and has been very useful to anyone who has a need for scoring. Symphony Pro has been around for 6 years now and has been continuously developed as an all round solution for notation on an iPad. In its latest incarnation Symphony Pro has really taken notation to the next level with support for the Apple Pencil for both writing & editing. What’s more it also now supports writing with touch and capacitive stylus. This is now the only paid feature in Symphony Pro, and this upgrade is a one-time purchase with free updates in the future.

Symphony Pro can now instantly convert pen strokes into all fundamental note objects, including stems, rests, beams, ties, and augmentation dots. The app can lasso a selection of notes and other musical elements.

Also in Symphony Pro 5 the basic instrumentation of the app has been updated. I never thought it was too bad in the first place, but now it boasts professionally sound-designed replacements to 36 of the orchestral, wind, and drum set instruments, as well as the piano. The latest version also sports improved expression playback, including tremolo, trill, glissando, crescendo, and more.

Whilst I appreciate the complexity of notation and just how this app has developed, I have to admit that some of it is lost on me. The latest version also introduces customize Rehearsal Mark text. You can now just double-tap the label in the score, then choose Edit Section Text.

There’s even more in this version. but without going into detail. Here are the headlines:

  • Score layout & Notation
  • Gesture Shortcuts for Touch & Apple Pencil
  • Score Symbols
  • Part Management
  • iPhone Universal app
  • Qwerty Keyboard Shortcuts & Accessibility
  • Drum Set Notation
  • Configure Meter & Customize Beam Groups
  • Tablature

Who doesn’t need a Vibrato Audio Unit in their iOS workflow?

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Tue 3 Oct 2017 9:17 pm

Aleksandar Mlazev has brought us quite a number of AUv3 iOS apps, including one of that I love the name of ‘Jack the Beat Maker‘. In his latest creation he’s brought us a classic vibrato and chorus effect Audio Unit AUv3.

Here’s a quick description of the app from Aleksandar:

With the “blend” slider you can gradually make it from pure vibrato to chorus by adding the original sound into the mix. Rate goes from really slow to space 12 Hz vibration sound. There is also a build-in reverb effect that is very useful if you use the app as a stand alone effect.

Vibrato is an Audio Unit Effect AUV3 and can be used inside GarageBand or other AU host apps as an effect plug-in. When used as stand alone app, it is adding effect to the audio input so you can play your guitar, bass or synth directly through the app if you have the connector to do so.

Vibrato controls:
– Rate – that is the vibrato speed
– Depth – this is how far the pitch is changed
– blend / chorus – that is the volume of the original sound so you can make it from pure vibrato when on 0 to classic chorus
– Reverb

It could be quite a useful effect, but then again you probably need to ask yourself just how many FX audio units you can reasonably have and actually make use of. That’s one of my issues with the explosion in audio unit FX apps of late. Sure, there are some very good ones, but I find myself going back to the ones I know and trust more often than not. It’s just human nature after all.

Vibrato – Audio Unit Effect is available on the app store and costs $1.99:

Audio Evolution Mobile Studio adds loads of new SoundFonts in a truly huge update

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Sun 1 Oct 2017 9:58 pm

Audio Evolution Mobile Studio is one of just a very few cross platform apps running on both iOS and Android. It’s even more unusual in that it actually started on Android and then moved to iOS later, which is a very odd sequence. In this update it has added a lot of new features and tweaks together with 20 new SoundFonts.

Here’s the full list:

* The graphics in the time line area are now drawn much faster (GPU accelerated)
* Added ToneBoosters Ferox tape-simulator plug-in
* Added count-in feature to Tempo dialog
* Reworked file browser: files now have a menu selection in front with sharing options etc.
* Added Stereo Widener effect
* After mix-down, the File browser now pops up to the MixDowns folder of the project
* 20 new soundfonts by Digital Sound Factory were added to the SoundFont shop, featuring many vintage synthesizers and orchestral instruments:
ARP 2600.SF2
ARP Axxe.SF2
ARP Solina Strings.SF2
Elka Rhapsody.SF2 (free!!)
Jupiter 8.SF2
Memory Moog.SF2
Orchestral Brass.SF2

Orchestral Small Section Strings.SF2
Orchestral Winds.SF2
Prophet 10.SF2
Prophet 600.SF2
Rhodes Electric Piano.SF2
Wurlitzer Electric Piano.SF2
Yamaha CP-70.SF2
* The soundfont shop now also contains the following discount packs, saving around 30% compared to buying the individual soundfonts:
Drum Kit pack
Orchestral pack
Synth pack 1 (7 of the new synths)
Synth pack 2 (8 of the new synths)
* Project templates: save project as a template and start a new project from a template.
* Added the option to load and save user presets for effects.
* Added an option to the settings to enable velocity for the virtual keyboard depending on the vertical touch position
* On the virtual keyboard screen, short tap on Sustain now toggles the sustain on/off. Long-tap will keep sustain for the duration of the tap.
* The soundfont dialog now scrolls to the current soundfont/bank/preset
* When several sound fonts were present, the default sound font was not always set to GeneralUser.sf2, which could lead to problems when importing MIDI files.
* The pop-up menu is now blocked when setting the time stretch point visually
* The rotation knob preference setting did not show the correct value. Solved.
* Automation wasn’t correct when playing loops. Solved.
* Swiping the area above the mixer now scrolls through the mixer channels
* Solved crash when undo-ing importing of a MIDI file
* Applying ‘Fade in/out’, Reverse or Pitch Shift on a trimmed clip would cause an exception and a clip with a negative or shortened length. Solved.
* Reduced CPU usage when displaying Toneboosters effects
* When a MIDI program change is encountered and the soundfont does not contain the preset number, the program change is now ignored. Previously, no sound would be produced.
* If a preset is selected in the instrument selection dialog, it will remove any program change from the first second of the MIDI track, to make sure the selected instrument will not be overruled.
* Solved a MIDI loop issue
* Zooming in Edit mode could start editing. Solved.
* Changed several effect parameters that control frequency to behave exponential (BandPass, LowPass, etc.)
* Editing a MIDI clip could result in the first event in the clip not playing. Solved.
* Solved a crash with arming a track in mixer view
* Changing the note length of MIDI events by using the white markers was not always quantised. Solved.
* The IAA play/stop state is now passed correctly

MultitrackStudio for iPad 2.8 brings iOS11 compatibility and a raft of other new features

Delivered... Ashley Elsdon | Scene | Sun 1 Oct 2017 7:52 pm

There aren’t a huge number of DAWs in the iOS world, but those that are have been established for a while, like Auria that started off in 2012, Cubasis from late 2012, and Multitrack DAW which started in 2009. So by comparison MultitrackStudio for iPad has been only ben around since early 2014, so it’s sort of a new kid on the block. Even so it has a fairly comprehensive feature set for an iOS DAW, and in the latest version it’s brought right up to date with support for iOS11 together with additional features and fixes.

Here’s the full list of what’s new:

• iOS 11: Can drop files on import dialogs, track editors, Convolutor pane, SoundFont Player pane and Matrix Sampler cells.
• Adding notes in pianoroll/score editors: you can now adjust the pitch of the new note by moving your finger vertically. Also applies to adding dots in midi controller editors, automation editors and Automated Fader effect.
• New “Follow” button. Editors don’t follow transport position if this button is off. You can use this if you want to apply some edits while the transport is running so you don’t have to worry about the editor moving to the next page unexpectedly.
• Pianoroll: ‘Split at transport position’ now also works when multiple notes are selected.
• Pianoroll/Score editors: ‘Split in equal parts’ now has ‘Other…’ option which lets you type any value.
• Pianoroll/Score editors: Repeat now also works if just a single note is selected.
• Drum editor: instrument selector now pops up after longtapping a name box. This is more consistent with the rest of the user interface than double tapping.
• Some (minor) MIDI editor improvements.
• Now uses AudioBus 3 SDK (no new features).
