Audio Damage has ported its recently updated Replicant 2 buffer effect to iOS.
Replicant is essentially a randomized looper/buffer reverse, with a randomized stutter effect inside the loop. Replicant is capable of simple delay and panning effects, all the way up to “instant Autechre” beat mangling,
The iOS version is essentially the same effect as the desktop version, but at about 1/10th the price.
- Tempo-based delay and looping effects, from 1/128th note to an entire measure.
- Stutter adds further subdivisions, down to a 1/16384th note (otherwise known as a “tone”.)
- Seven independant randomization controls, for subtle changes or extreme aleatoric madness, including a global randomize button.
- “Hold” feature, to store a random sequence you like.
- Resonant low-pass and high-pass filters that change over time.
- Pan position that changes over time.
- Two separate direction modes, for entire events or individual repeats, with randomization.
- Front panel triggering of loop events for live playing of effects.
Audio Damage notes:
“Replicant 2 is a tempo-based effect, and requires a host that provides transport information. A standalone application is supplied, but it requires an Inter-App Audio connection to a host with a transport to work. We strongly advise using the (identical) AUv3 instead. Ableton Link will be added in the near future for true standalone operation.
Also note that AudioBus 3 does _not_ provide transport information. Hence, Replicant will not work correctly in AudioBus 3. We recommend BeatMaker 3, AUM, Cubasis, ModStep, GarageBand, and similar AUv3 hosts that have a transport.
And finally, we have made an iPhone version available for cross-compatibility, but note that the controls are very small. It can be difficult to use in this context, and we do not recommend it.”
