Yonac Software has released Galileo, a tonewheel and transistor organ emulator for the iPad and iPad Mini.
Galileo offers eleven unique organ types, three manuals, scanner vibrato/chorus emulation, percussion module, and settable organ parameters such as leakage, keyclick, attack & release, and more.
“We aimed to design a versatile, tweakable organ that can reproduce the sounds in Jazz, Rock, Gospel and Reggae classics, yet also allow a lot of room for customization and new sounds,” says Galileo engineer Jim Yonac. “We invested a lot of time into modeling the core components of the ‘Organ Sounds’, like in our new rotary cabinet simulator and our virtual-tube ‘Class A’ inspired preamp.”
Yonac Software has released Magellan Jr – a ‘professional analog modeling synthesizer’ for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Magellan Jr offers full FX rack, three oscillators, dual filters, multiple unison stages, extensive modulation matrix, arpeggiator, and a polyphonic step-sequencer. Magellan Jr and Magellan are completely compatible: presets, sequences and sound recordings are easily interchangeable.
It covers how to use virtual MIDI with other virtual MIDI capable apps (here demo’d with GeoSynth). It also looks at how to control a hardware synth, in this case a Korg microKorg, with Magellan’s MIDI Out feature. You can use Magellan’s arpeggiators, ChordMakers, and sequencer with the MIDI Out.
Magellan is available now in the App Store for US $9.99.
The video explores one of the more unique features of Magellan – the twin independent polyphonic synth engines. It covers: loading presets, foregrounding a synth, adjusting parameters, synth coupling, and other advanced settings.
Magellan is available now in the App Store for $4.99.
