A Noise Machine

playlist_add Wishlist

iTunes Description:

An experiment in touch based controls of pitch and volume for multiple tones resulted in an app that's fun to interact with, and produces a wide range of different sounds and textures.

Drag some dots into the work area and carefully position for controllable out of phasing, or shake the device to randomize the whole mess.

Use touch to position up to 40 tones in the work space
Slider controls for motion setup
Pause so you can grab the fast moving ones
Save/load your compositions (can they be called that?)
Auto save/load of active composition when exiting/starting app
Shake device to randomize all active tones
Individual tone randomization option

Drum Circle Jam

playlist_add Wishlist

iTunes Description:

Create your own drum loops from over 50 drum sounds arranged in 9 sets: Dumbek/Darbukka, Djembe, Tabla, Conga/Tumba, Timbale, Jazz, Techno, Traps, and Street Sounds. There are 16 setups to store your loops. Each setup can have up to 9 tracks. Loops contain 1-16 beats. Beats can be subdivided into quarter notes, eighth notes, eighth-note triplets, or sixteenth notes.

Compressor

playlist_add Wishlist

iTunes Description:

Multiband Compressor brings your audio track to life, adding impact and character to everything from bass and drums to an entire mix. It affect the most basic aspect of sound: Volume.

Upload your music files via wifi (via web browser, no separate software needed!)
Audiocopy and paste are supported as well, so interaction with a growing group of apps like Fourtrack and DopplerPad is ensured.

Internal calculations are done in 64 bit floating point, the industry standard in digital sound processing. During conversion to 16 bit (CD quality) you have the option of dithering the sound to reduce artifacts and lower the noise level (noise shaping).

Threshold determines the volume at which compression kicks in.
Simply put, when a signal’s level exceeds the set threshold, the compressor activates and begins lowering the volume.

Ratio determines how much the compressor will lower the volume once the threshold is exceeded.
For example, if a compressor’s ratio is set to 6:1, then when the threshold is exceeded by six decibels, only one decibel will pass above the threshold.
At the highest settings, a compressor turns into a limiter, which serves the same essential function, but in a much more extreme manner.

The attack parameter controls how quickly the processor lowers the volume after the threshold is exceeded. Fast attack means that compression will be instantaneous, while slow attack means the compression is increased gradually, allowing for more variations in the signal than the fast setting. Attack should be adjusted according to the type of audio material you are using.

Once the signal passes back below the threshold, the release parameter determines how long it will take for the compressor to stop manipulating the volume. Short release times will make the compression more flexible and able to adapt to the input signal, but may cause fast changes in gain that may sound unpleasant. Longer release times produce a more even signal with less distortion, but make it harder to maximize the overall compression because small variations in signal level will be ignored.

Gain controls the amount of volume to be added to the signal. The gain should be adjusted to normalize the signal.

Solo will only play the current band and mute the others.

Bypass plays the music file without any compression or gain at all.

The peak display shows output levels. Dark blue lines represent the original file. Light blue lines show the amounts of gain applied and red lines indicate values above 0dB that cause clipping.
The refresh rate of the peak graph can be reduced for older devices so the CPU can keep up with all the intensive tasks that happen in real time.

To set gain and cutoff frequency of each band, use the three band equalizer on top of the screen. To select a specific band: double tap the equalizer band you wish.
Threshold, ratio, attack and release are band specific. Gain is global.
Next to the threshold a real time histogram shows the peak distribution to help find optimal threshold and ratio levels.

Once you decide to render your file, make sure to select dithering on in the settings screen. You can also select the amount of noise shaping psycho acoustic modelling of the noise floor.

The Synth

Nanoloop's FM synth offers a maximum of flexibility within a small set of parameters. It comes with a stereo modulator detune effect and covers the typical clean bells and Rhodes-like sounds, spheric pads, thick beats and basses.


The Sequencer

The stepsequencer visualises the rhythmic structure in a compact 4x4 square matrix, making it very easy to lay out patterns.


The Sampler

Besides A/D envelope, loop function, start offset, tune and fine tune, the puristic sampler comes without effects. You can record up to 6 seconds via microphone or copy samples via iTunes.


Share

With nanoloop for iPhone, you can send your saved projects to other nanoloop users and your own PC via e-mail. If nanoloop is installed on the recipient's iPhone / iPod, she/he can simply tap on the file name in the received e-mail to start nanoloop and import the attached file so that it is available for editing. This makes collaboration very easy, multiple users around the world can work on the same project by simply e-mailing the file.


Export

Songs can be exported to a WAV file that is accessible via iTunes (simply drag & drop files in finder). The exported file is also copied to the clipboard so that it can be pasted in other apps that support pasting audio. If a file sharing app like Dropbox is installed, you can upload the file there.
