RatshackReverb3 by Audio Damage, Inc.

Today Audio Damage, Inc. released RatshackReverb3, a modeled recreation of the classic analog effect unit Radio Shack Realistic Electronic Reverb. This is a unique part of musical history in that it was both commonly used and complete shit. As the iTunes description here notes; it isn't actually "reverb" at all. It simulates reverb by chaining together a series of delays. That's not to say that it isn't useful. I love this style of sloppy-verb.

A lot of attention has gone into this one. Even the inputs are circuit modeled so you can overdrive them! RatshackReverb3 is Universal on iOS and works with both Inter-App Audio and Audio Unit v3 hosts. Presets can be shared between the iOS and the $20 desktop version!

Contest: I have 3 copies to give away! Register and comment here for a chance to win. Get those entries in quick because I will close the contest early Saturday, to give the winners time to play with it this weekend!

RatshackReverb3 iTunes Description:

Ratshack Reverb is a detailed model of that classic of classics, the Realistic Electronic Reverb. Now, you can have the sound of everyone's first analog delay unit, without ever having to change batteries!

As anyone who has owned this unit (which is just about everyone...) knows, it was actually an analog delay, not a reverb at all, and we've done our best to exactly replicate the sound and quirks of the original. We've even modeled the distortion that occurs by running a line signal in to the mic inputs.


» Accurate analog "bucket-brigade" style delay model. Change the delay time, and the signal pitches accordingly.

» Both mic and line inputs modeled, for overdriving the delay section if desired.

» XML-based cross-platform preset manager, with copy and paste. (You can even move presets between the iOS version and the desktop version with Handoff.)

» Entirely vector-based resizable high-resolution user interface

» Both IAA and AUv3 versions included.

Introducing Oboe for Building Audio Apps on Android

After years of ignoring musicians, Android may finally be getting on track to provide Apple with some competition in this space. This year we've seen the release of n-Track's Audioroute, allowing for Inter-app Audio and MIDI on Android. Now Google themselves have stepped up to address the latency problem with Oboe. This is a C++ library that they promise will bring low latency audio processing to 99% of Android devices. There is even a demo app using Oboe with Ableton Link.

The official Android Developers YouTube Channel has some new videos to introduce the library. There's an example coding video for Making a Sound with Oboe, and embedded here is an introduction to the library.

Video Description:

Introducing Oboe, a C++ library for building high performance audio apps on Android! Oboe offers the lowest latency possible across 99% of Android devices. If you need to record or playback sounds in your app as close to real-time as possible, Oboe is designed for you. In this video, Don Turner (Developer Advocate for Android Audio) highlights the key features of the Oboe library, how it works under-the hood, and how to start using Oboe in your app!

RE-1 Tape Machine Universal Update

The popular RE-1 Tape Machine, from Numerical Audio, is now Universal with the addition of iPhone support! The update also includes some helpful additions like the option to apply a crossfade on exported loops.

What's new in RE-1 Tape Machine v1.1:

- Universal: added iPhone support
- UI: Added "What's new" dialogue
- UI: Added Sample export dialoge with options for applying a crossfade at the loop point and adjusting sample volume before writing it to disk
- UI: added info mode - when enabled, tapping any control will bring up a description of it's function as well as suggestions on how to use it
- UI: added support for drag n drop import/export of samples (works in Standalone and AU)
- Optimizations: improved drawing performance
- Optimizations: decreased install size
- Looping: When overdub is engaded, feedback only affects output from the second and third playback heads (this change was made to avoiding high pitched artifacts caused by modulating a delay time of 0hz)
- Fixed an issue where importing .wav files using uncommon format headers would crash the app or create static
- Fixed an issue where "link transport" and "time-stretch" buttons would not toggle properly
- Fixed an issue where restoring an ApeMatrix session with RE-1 inside would crash the plugin
- Fixed an issue where using wireless headphones would result in low quality mono audio
- Fixed an issue where changing the host tempo would cause time-streching to be calculated based on the previous, not the updated tempo
- Fixed an issue where loading the app in Garagageband would cause a crash (only relates to IAA, not AUv3)
- Fixed an issue where time-stretching would only be applied to samples loaded from audio files but not live recordings
- Fixed an issue where the right channel would behave differnetly from the left when applyin feedback in overdub mode
