Here’s what they have to say about it:
How many times have you touched a great music app on iOS only to realize it’s limitations begin at the first touch? It sounds great, but capturing and utilizing the sounds for DAW can be tedious and frustrating.
Musicians need flexibility and platform unity, so that the time spent musing around on iOS, actually becomes time invested in your next hit tune. The Votan Platform fills this gap with a series of innovative and future thinking technologies.
The Votan Platform is engineered as a dual-use solution over both platforms (iOS / DAW). Everything you design on iOS will be available in your DAW. The Votan Platform takes care of everything in between. Like magic, everything will be in perfect sync.
Developer Yuri Turov has released Xynthesizr, a free software synth that combines matrix sequencing, generative music features & a full-fledged synthesizer.
With its synthesizer and morphing features, Xynthesizr can be a classic ToneMatrix, an arpeggiated synth, a soft ambient generator, a drone machine and more.
Virsyn has introduced Cube Synth – a new software instrument designed to combine the power of additive synthesis with easy editing and morphing capabilities.
Here’s what Virsyn has to say about Cube Synth:
Intelligent sound morphing capabilities enables you to easily create complex evolving sound scapes, vocal phrases or stunning rhythms simply by choosing up to four sound sources from a predefined set. Then add one of the predefined envelopes and a unique, complex sound preset containing thousands of parameters is created! If you want to dive deeper into the inner secrets of this synthesis monster you can manipulate each parameter individually to get precise control over the sound. A number of high level parameters such as Brightness and Harmonic spread control hundreds of synthesis parameters in a way modeled after the inner workings of natural instruments.
Cube Synth gives you also a new method of getting randomly generated sound patches in a way you never experienced before: roll the dice! Every single try gives you a new unique sound patch, really every try, promised?
Here’s a demo of Cube Synth in action: Continue reading
One Red Dog Media has released Arctic Pro Synthesizer – a new software synth & vocoder for iPad.
Arctic Pro is a modern subtractive synthesizer for the Apple iPad that does not aim to model or re-create vintage synths of yesteryear, but instead is designed to offer “a rude, rough, bold and tough palette of sound”.
That palette of sound includes two HyperOscillators, a sub oscillator, dual filters, easy to re-order master effects and a vocoder. Presets are designed by sound designer John ‘Skippy’ Lehmkuhl, who has contributed to the sound design of Korg synths since the M1.
Here’s a video introduction to Arctic Pro: Continue reading
