BLEASS Released

BLEASS was released yesterday as a new groovebox, with 2 drum tracks and 2 mono synth tracks. I believe the name is pronounced like a bleating sheep trying to say, "Bliss." The app arrives with Ableton Link and Audiobus, as well as MIDI In/Out support. Many of you will be annoyed by the app being locked in portrait mode on iPad, while nearly all of you will be offended by the subscription pricing of €7 per month.

BLEASS iTunes Description:

Fed up with standardized presets and instruments? Feel lost in overcomplex filters and effects? Don’t wanna sound like everyone else? BLEASS is just the right instrument for you: it unleashes your inner musical creativity by bringing music production and performance to its very core: play, perform, compose beats and melodies in a new yet intuitive way thanks to its multitrack sequencer, synthesizer and drum machine.

BLEASS is the first iOS music instrument invented for both iPhones & iPads to bring instant musical bliss with almost limitless possibilities: its powerful realtime audio engine has been designed to let you go deep in the shaping of electronic sounds without being limited by factory presets.

Record, import and edit your own samples and make sick beats out of the 16 steps sequencer with customizable filters and grooves.
Customize endlessly your mono synths by tweaking the filters, envelopes and LFO !

Record/Edit/Start/Stop/Copy/Paste your patterns as you feel like, build and arrange your song on the fly, apply reverb or delay effects, and let the music live!
Thanks to its unique slider controls and long-press ergonomics and its unique wild sound, BLEASS almost feels like an electric guitar.

BLEASS supports Ableton Link, Audiobus and Inter-App Audio and also works in complete synergy with all of your studio soft- and hardware gear using MIDI IN/OUT and SYNC features.

All musicians will enjoy using BLEASS for its intuitiveness and musical potential, making music composition and live performance feel completely uninhibited.

The Sound Test Room has posted a video already. Embedded here is the official demo for BLEASS.

St Just in Roseland Organ by Omenie Limited

Mellotronics M3000 developer Omenie Limited released St Just in Roseland Organ. This is a wavetable synth designed to faithfully recreate the organ found at St. Just in Roseland church. It is unclear what, if any, inter-app connectivity is available, but it definitely supports hardware MIDI input.

Update: Reader Laarz commented here with a note that the app supports IAA and Audiobus!

St Just in Roseland Organ iTunes Description:

This is an accurate reproduction of the organ in St. Just in Roseland church, Cornwall.

The original organ features 2 manuals and a 32-note pedalboard, 22 stops, a rich selection of couplers and a tremulant on the Swell division. The full complement of stops, couplers and tremulant is in place in this digital recreation. Additionally 8 programmable pistons are provided to allow one-touch access to frequently-used registrations. A high quality reverberation engine is provided in the app, and the reverb controls, overall instrument volume, swell, crescendo and the pistons may all be controlled by an attached MIDI controller.

By exploiting Wavetable Trajectory Synthesis rather than sample replay, this app is tiny, yet manages to capture all the beauty and the subtle nuances of the organ.

Note that this version of the app does not contain a playable on-screen keyboard, so attached USB MIDI controllers are required to play the organ.

Privacy Statement : this app does not access any of the personal data on your device.

YouTuber Mark Ireland provides an excellent sounding demo of the new app.
