Filtatron Update Adds AudioBus, Jack

moog-filtatronMoog Music has updated Filtatron, its realtime audio filter and effects app for iOS, adding AudioBus, Jack support and more.

Here’s what’s new in Filtatron 1.2.0:

  • Audiobus and JACK support. Filtatron can act as a source, a destination, or a filter for audio from other compatible apps. (for audio IN to Filtatron, be sure to turn up the LINE level knob to hear it)
  • MIDI mapping for almost every parameter. Use hardware controllers or external sequencers to control Filtatron remotely. Check the MIDI menu on the ‘About’ page.
  • Share files from the Samples directly to SoundCloud
  • Now supports both Landscape and Portrait orientation on iPad
  • New full-screen artwork for iPhone 5

Moog Filtatron is available in the App Store.

  1. I’ve midi mapped every parameter on my controller. Going to make a faceplate for this. Ultimate plan is to make a dedicated hardware controller, possibly even containing my iPhone when I upgrade. iFooger? 🙂

      1. well if you got an iphone or ipad already it’s a no brainer. its certainly no Moogerfooger, but you can have your fair share of fun with it. This will cost you $1.99 a Moogerfooger costs a lot more… more like $300…

  2. ha ha just tested the lanscape mode ….. are you kidding me?

    now its a small portrait oriented app in landscape mode with 1/3 unused balck space left and right

    a bit like the turnado landscape mode where you cant go fullscreen in edit mode hehe

  3. although i was very pleasantly surprised to see this, and it is great,
    it does seem that only bare necessities were implemented.
    it is nice very nice tho.

  4. Well, I think it sounds great. Midi control is great. I wanted that more than any other features, including Audiobus (although that is a great addition, albeit rather basic in implementation).

    There’s very few parameters I can’t control with MIDI, so that’s great. I’ve mapped all 30 available parameters to separate hardware controls on my control surface. The only ones you can’t map (I think) are: sample record, VCO pitch lock, tap tempo and VCO trigger (when you’ve enabled release). I suppose the last one might respond to MIDI notes, but I’ve not tried it yet. Also my controller only sends 7-bit MIDI CCs so I don’t know whether Filtatron supports higher resolution MIDI messages (is that 14-bit?).

    As for the Moogerfooger suggestion, yes I’d love one that did everything Filtatron does, especially the sample manipulation and mixing 3 sources, the hi/lo filter with LFO and ENV follower, the delay with modulation, the pitch controlled VCO and the distortion.
