Densitygs has announcediDensity for iPad – a new software synth that brings all the granular synthesis tools of Density/Pulsaret (Mac/Win standalone) to the iPad.
iDensity is real-time software designed for asynchronous sound file granulation, a ‘granular playground’, able to generate a wide range of usual and not so usual effects:
recording and manipulation of buffers
complex scrub pad exploration
dynamic envelope shape
iDensity allows you to record audio directly with your iPad mic and load up to nine built-in sound sample or add your own WAV, AIFF, CAF, MP3, M4A or MP3 files via iTunes.
With iDensity it is also possible to record the stereo output (of granulation) into the documents folder while scrubbing in the wavepad or moving granulation parameters in real-time. The mixdown/audio results can then be syncronized with/in iTunes.
Greg Surges’ USB-Octomod is an interesting new USB device which allows the generation of computer-controlled analog synthesizer control voltages, in the range of approximately +/- 5V.
Using a small open-source and cross-platform host application, you can control the 8 output channels of the Octomod through a simple OSC interface. The OSC interface lets you control the Octomod from a variety of software. Continue reading →
