Kronecker Synthesizer by iceGear, Inc.

iceGear, developer of Redshrike, Mersenne, Lorentz, Laplace, and Cassini, has released another innovative synthesizer for iOS! Kronecker is a "clockwork" synthesizer driven by rhythmic patterns. Using 4 FM synthesis generators, called emitters, you can specify when each will trigger inside of the clockwork mechanism.

This isn't just FM synthesis though, as each emitter can be processed through two resonators. This combination is somewhat similar to the synthesis engine in Mersenne... but not really. Kronecker is definitely its own beast, as you can hear in the demos below.

Kronecker arrives as a Universal iOS app; with AUv3, Inter-App Audio, Audiobus, and Ableton Link support!

Kronecker Synthesizer iTunes Description:

Kronecker is a synthesizer with a mechanism to make sounds many times like a rhythm machine each time you press a keyboard.

In addition to synchronizing the trigger speed to the tempo, you can gradually increase the speed or slow it down after pressing the key. This makes it possible to produce synthesizer sounds like bouncing balls and clockwork toys.

Kronecker has four emitters that emit sound particles made from FM tones and noise. At the emitter you can specify at what timing the sound particles will be triggered. You can also add effects such as the pitch and tone of particles gradually changing.

Particles emitted by the emitter can be processed with two resonators, and you can reproduce sounds like particles jumping on strings and pipes.

Kronecker works not only on the iPad but also on the iPhone. It also supports Audio Unit Extensions (AUv3), so you can plug in to AUv3 compatible host. For each screen size, different layouts are designed to be easy to use and intuitive.

## Key Features
* Universal App
Optimized for both the iPad and the iPhone.

* Audio Unit Extensions (AUv3)
You can use in a host application that supports Audio Unit such as GarageBand.

* Inter-App Audio
You can stream live audio directly to other Inter-App Audio host applications.

* Audiobus support
You can stream live audio directly to other Audiobus-compatible apps. See for more information.

* Ableton Link
Ableton Link is a new technology that synchronizes beat, phase and tempo of Ableton Live and Link-enabled iOS apps over a wireless network. See for more information.

- Core MIDI, Virtual MIDI, Inter-App Audio MIDI input
- MIDI Clock synchronization
- MIDI Controller Mapping

* Programmable Arpeggiator
You can easily create your own pattern.

Doug Woods has already posted his thesoundtestroom demo for Kronecker. Embedded here is the official reveal from iceGear.

Audio Dev Interview: Andy Bull, creator of LayR iOS Synth

Developer Matthew Fecher interviewed Andy Bull, the man behind the epic LayR synth! Andy let it slip that the price for LayR will be going up later this month, so you should definitely snag it now if you haven't already!

Video Description:

Andy Bull has had an amazing career. Before the internet was even invented, he started out writing software for the world famous Akai Samplers, including the MPC. Read more to see some highlights...

And now, he's using his decades of experience as an engineer and musician to make amazing apps like LayR, an awarding winning iOS Synth that sounds LUSH.

"Don’t let people put you off your vision. Develop a thick skin for criticism. Learn the technical aspects as you go instead of feeling like you need to 'get it all' before you begin". — Andy Bull
