Sugar Bytes Brings Aparillo FM Synthesizer To iPad

Sugar Bytes has announced Aparillo for iPad – an advanced 16 voice FM synth, tailored to complex and evolving sounds.

Aparillo – previously available for Mac & Windows – is based on two interacting FM synthesizers. capable of creating complex timbres.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

A clever arrangement of synthesis, wave shaping, filtering, FX and modulation unfolds into a serious sound design tool for epic sonic creation. Aparillo uses many parameters that can be modulated for individual adjustments PER voice.

Each of the sixteen voices interact with almost two dozen targets in a variety of ways for a continuous transformation and to create endless rhythms and melodic progressions.

The integrated effects include a free-signalflow Filter/Spacial Comb device, a polyphonic Auto Pan with multiple waveforms, the obligatory Delay, our finest Reverb algorithm, and a Sugar Bytes innovation, the Spacializer. This is a very special breed of delay based effect, which can work as a delay, reverb or tuned comb filter and can add room, plucked strings or even pinged percussion to your sound.

The superstar of Aparillo is the Orbiter, an instinctual “mass-controller” you move through Aparillo’s endless sonic universes for one-touch sound morphing.

  1. More awesome sauce. Been using the vst since it came out, thanks for the iOS version.
    Between this and the upcoming Aphelian Labs release, more sound creation sonic heaven.

  2. Well that’s the most interesting synth I’ve seen in a long time.

    Just watched the video and my mind is spinning. I’m afraid to download this, because I think I’d be captivated and perplexed for months.

    Nice work, Sugar Bytes.
