Sunvox Update

Sunvox updates are always big, and developer Alexander Zolotov is keeping up the pace with this one!

Update Highlights:

  • now XM and MOD files (formats of old trackers) can be loaded without the converter, through the Main Menu -> Load Song; you can find hundreds of these files on this site: modarchive.org; 
  • added autorepeat mode for the following buttons: HLD (clear current note), OFF (insert Note OFF), INS (insert), BCK (backspace); 
  • added eight layers for the modules; for example you can place some complicated drum chain on the first layer, and all other synths - on the second layer; layers can be visible together or separately; 
  • new function "Scale" in the Module menu: use it if you want a smaller or bigger module size for the current project; 
  • new module - WaveShaper; 
  • new module - MetaModule; with this module you can include some external .sunvox song to your project and use this song as synth or effect; * new option "Smooth frequency change" in the Analog Generator; enabled by default; disable it if you want to use arpeggio effect 08; 
  • velocity map in the MultiSynth module; * maximum number of pattern tracks has been increased from 8 to 16;

Cat Synth (Powered by Impaktor)

Aaron Apter was one of the winners in my recent Impaktor promo-code give away on Twitter. Aaron also has a camera and a cat.

Video description:

My cat Vincent is actually a synthesizer. A fluffy, orange synthesizer. I'm using Impaktor, which captures Vince's acoustic impulses and uses them to excite various sound modules. With the aid of my iPad, Vinny and I kick out some jams.

Noisepad Gets Big Update

Man there are a lot of apps out there. I hadn't even heard about this one until I saw the update news for it on Palm Sounds.

I like the minimialist interface of this beat maker. They try to hit you up to buy IAP loops, but I double-checked and you can import your own via iTunes file-sharing.

Update Highlights:

• Organize samples
- Organize samples into Soundbanks, drag 'n drop them onto buttons and swap them around
- Create as many Soundbanks as you like
• Sequencer / Record
- Real-time sequencer: record your beats on the fly
- Record up to 12 patterns, each with own variable length
- Export pattern to WAV file
