Audulus 2.9 Brings Improved Memory Usage & More

Developer Taylor Holliday has updated Audulus for Mac & iOS to version 2.9.

The update offers improved memory usage, usability improvements and more.

Here’s what’ s new in Audulus 2.9:

  • Non-Modal context menu on iPad. The menu won’t interfere with turning a knob.
  • Reduced memory usage for making huge patches.
  • Updated AudioBus
  • Improved AudioUnit support on Mac
  • By user request: add a Toggle option for the Trigger node.

Audulus is a minimalist modular software synthesizer and effects processor. With Audulus, users can build synthesizers, design new sounds, or process audio. All with low latency real-time processing suitable for live performance.

audulus-iphoneAudulus for iOS is available on the App Store for $14.99. An iPhone 4s or iPad 2 is required. Audulus for Mac is available on the Mac App Store for $29.99. Mid 2010 or later Mac is required.

Audulus for iOS can be used as a stand-alone instrument or in conjunction with Audulus for Mac, for a round-trip workflow between platforms. Users can begin a patch on one platform and finish it on another – iPad, iPhone or Mac – since Audulus syncs user patches via iCloud.

  1. Blimey! The developer is highly commited to this app. Few apps get such constant updates

    Not only that, it’s a pukka app too:)

    Respect Taylor!

    1. I’d second that.

      The guy’s like clockwork, releasing updates every couple months and making solid improvements to an already great app. The consistent updates make me a rabid fan. How many apps ever get updated, let alone regular updates like Audulus?

      I refused to buy iMPC Pro, specifically because both Akai and Retronyms have a weak track record for addressing problems with their apps. There are a lot of developers that I’d put in the same boat. They make a big splash and then do NOTHING to fix their apps.

      Seriously – all Akai needs to do is get MIDI In/Out figured out and I’d be $20 poorer and happy about it.

      1. Forget the iMPC pro, what about their synthstation app?? That could have been great but the sequencing sux and they abandoned it without export ( I don’t call wifi transfer export lol)

        1. I forgot about that one!

          If I were an Akai product manager, I’d be sweating to get this stuff right, not doing it halfway.

          Companies can probably make a quick buck with stuff like iMPC Pro or t-pain apps. But in the long run, musicians are going to figure out which apps are professional and get updated, and those apps are going to get our money.

          People remember which companies abandon their stuff and which ones take care of their customers.

          People are still pissed about the original iMPC app, and won’t buy iMPC Pro as a result. And everybody that bought Kore is going to think twice before buying any NI hardware!

              1. So, yes the Retronyms were hired to make that app, considering it actually sold many many units, the fact that they put out many demo videos and that it took ages to make, how much exactly do you think they got paid by akai? Retronyms did all the work, of course they got paid top dollar, how else do you think they can afford to keep developing? It’s not as if tabletop is in the top music apps is it??

                Because their relationship with the mobile music community is poor, might have had an impact on the crowd funding for the hardware they are proposing.

                1. I’m not sure why Retronym’s relationship with the mobile music company is “poor”. Sure they started the IAP craze in music apps, but that was coming anyways. Besides, TableTop is a quality app IMO. It’s not like you buy it, and it crashes and the sounds suck. If they had the resources to update their apps on a regular cycle, they might. Taylor Holliday only has the one app to take care of.

  2. I’ve been thinking about picking up the desktop version of this for a while. Looks like a great feature set. Most of the sounds I’ve heard in demos though sound a bit “Chip-Tuney”. Any users have any thoughts on the quality and variety of sounds it can make?

    1. It’s a modular chris, means u can choose sine, saw, square or whatever to start signal with then model your sound based on that. U can make great bass on it, dreamy pads etc, its really flexible/ malleable to taste

      Kind of like an audio jigsaw where u make your own puzzle:)
