Audulus 2.5 Update Lets You Build Your Own Uber-Modules

audulus-nodesDeveloper Taylor Holliday has updated his modular synth, Audulus, to version 2.5. The update adds a new option, Custom Nodes, that lets you build your own uber-modules:

The Custom Nodes upgrade allows you to add customized user interface to Patch Nodes. A user interface element (Knob, Input, Output, Filter Graph, etc.) in a sub-patch may be shown on the Patch Node by selecting “Expose” from the element’s context menu. An element’s position on the Patch Node is determined by its position in the sub-patch.

Here’s Holliday’s intro video: Continue reading

Audulus Update Lets You Sync Patches Wirelessly Via ‘The Cloud’

Developer Taylor Holliday has released Audulus 2.4 for iPad and Mac – an update to the software modular that lets you sync your patches wirelessly via ‘the cloud’.

The update adds support for iCloud. You put together an awesome modular patch in Audulus on your iPad and it syncs wirelessly to iCloud. When you’re back at your computer and open up Audulus, your patches from iCloud are available.

“Audulus is the only synth I know of that syncs patches via iCloud,” comments Holliday. Continue reading

Audulus Update Lets You Create Advanced Polyphonic Modular Synth Patches

Developer Taylor Holliday has released Audulus 2.3 for iPad and Mac, updating the modular synth with new capabilities for creating polyphonic synth patches.

“Audulus is the only polyphonic modular synthesizer on iOS,” says Audulus developer Taylor Holliday. “And now with our souped-up polyphonic sub-patches in Audulus 2.3, we’re moving toward being able to express an entire polyphonic synthesizer within a sub-patch.” Continue reading

Effectus Adds 4 Stereo Effects To Audulus

affectus-audulusSunsine Audio has introduced a collection of four stereo effects for Audulus, Effectus.

Effectus contains 4 stereo effects ready for standalone or Audiobus use.

  • Shifter -Shifter contains a pitch shift section as well as a ring mod section. Both can be used independently or mixed together as well as mixed with the original signal.
  • Binary (Chop) and Binary (RIng) - Binary is an amplitude modulator or gate device, and comes in two flavors. Binary (Chop) allows exploration of slower speed stereo gating effects while Binary (Ring) brings the amplitude modulation into the audio range, producing ring modulation effects with a different tone than the “traditional” ring modulation in Shifter produces.
  • Mothra -Mothra is a sequenced and filtered reverb. Each input is individually fed through a network of distortion devices, simple low pass filters, and reverbs which are then delivered to a 16 step sequencer providing strange stereo and resonant spaces which can be “stepped” through.
  • Time Gap -Time Gap is a filtered stereo delay with cross feed between the left and right channels. A simple high pass filter is followed by three delay units with two resonant low pass filters placed between them, delays can be cross fed at two points in the signal chain.

Here’s a video demo of Effectus in action: Continue reading
