New Effect, Woott, Makes Your iOS Synth Sound ‘Massive & Aggressive’

Developer Bram Bos let us know that he has released a new iOS Audio Unit multiband dynamics effect, Woott.

Woott is a “multiband dynamics plugin with simultaneous downward and upward compression”.

Bos says that what it does is slam the dominant parts of your synth sound and then amplify the quiet details to giant proportions. The result is that your sounds become ‘massive and aggressive’.

“It’s based on the OTT dynamics preset from Ableton, which has become a staple EDM/DnB/Neuro-production effect in the desktop world,” explains Bos. “I have used that as a starting point for creating something similar for iOS. So it’s not a 1:1 clone, but it will do the same things: make huge monstrous growling basses and leads, manipulate sampled breakbeats and loops, enhance timbral/filter movements in synth sounds, etc.”

Features:

  • AUv3 audio unit effect plugin
  • Universal (all iPads and iPhones supported), iOS11+
  • Runs in all your favorite plugin hosts: Cubasis, AUM, Beatmaker 3, Nanostudio 2, Garageband, etc.
  • Multi-output (requires compatible host) for post-processing the individual bands
  • Low-resource, so stack as many of them as you like – “[WO]OTT all the things!”
  • Downwards *and* upwards compressors (a rare feature on conventional dynamics plugins)
  • Smart soft limiter per band, adapts to its own band’s specific settings

Pricing and Availability

Woott is available now for $3.99 USD.

  1. As some have noted, part of the issue is in the pricing. We want Bram to thrive. Maybe this will be popular enough that it’ll be worth his while.
    In my case, it’s the kind of thing which will come in handy on occasion even though I wouldn’t have to get something like it if it weren’t for the Bos treatment. Instabought because I knew it’d deliver. Discovering some cool things to do with it, especially with (three-part) multi-out.

  2. Bram Bos had made a major impact on the iOS music scene with his innovative Rozeta MIDI suite and cool and great sounding FX. Even though I have way too many apps, Bram Bos releases are an insta-buy.

  3. With the amount of synths, effects, daws and midi iOS devices I’ve acquired thru the years utilitarian effects that add color and definition seem a lot more relevant to me at this point. Generally easy to use, generally sounds pretty good. Qualms- More specifically title presets. I’m a big proponent for creativity, but with utilitarian plug. Perhaps more utilitarian and specific preset titles. Dam I’m gettin old.
