Self-a-Fuzz by Savelii Kaliupanov

Reader Savelii Kaliupanov, developer of Degulator, just released Self-a-Fuzz! This new distortion effect can be used in Audiobus, or Inter-App Audio, and includes MIDI-in for controlling the drone and filters. Self-a-Fuzz is self-described as being hard to setup, and actively warns against its difficulty in the iTunes description! Fortunately there is a detailed manual, with SoundCloud examples of some of the many effects possible in this distortion app. It is also the first app to use Confused Travolta on the official site to illustrate complexity.

Self-a-Fuzz iTunes Description:

Launch discount for several days only.

This is not a easy to setup app, it would be hard to understand.
If you seek for “make it great” button - this is not.
I wish you think twice before buying this app, read manual and explore examples.
And write me a line if you have any struggles.

Self-a-Fuzz its a distortion audio effect, pretends on the name of the dirtiest distortion ever. It uses noise-shaping and couple overdrives to bring unusual disturbance into your instruments.
As source of noise for shaping you can use white/pink noise generators, input itself and mighty drone unit with 5 oscillators and pitch detection. You can filter your noise with bypass, VCF and 10-line equaliser.
Shaping-modulation unit have 11 methods to mix up signals and kick dramatic changes to source.
After this you also can drive your input and/or mix it with shaped input and/or filtered noise.
And off course it have randomisers!

+ Audiobus and IAA
+ audio in background if connected to IAA or Audiobus
+ white/pink noise generators
+ Clean input as noise source
+ Drone with sinus, saw, square, triangle and table oscillators
+ Bypass, VCF and 10-line equaliser
+ 11 types of signal mixing to combine
+ 4 overdrive
+ Lowpass and limiter on output
+ Pitch detection for drone
+ 4-voice polyphony synth
+ MIDI-in to controll drone and filters
+ Internal keyboard for setup drone chord
+ presets system
+ Recording to wav
+ Audioshare export and copy to clipboard
+ Many randomisers with different deep to mess up setup
+ 8 live monitors to look on sound

Go to to know more, hear and see examples and tutorials.
If you ignore this suggestion, i promise, you’l feel yourself like John Travolta in famous gifs - completely lost.

Thank you.

Accordo by Tangible Instruments

Charlie Lesoine wrote in to let me know about his new app Accordo. This app is inspired by the highly collectible Suzuki Omnichord, offering a similar workflow in which you pick a root note and then "strum" through a selection of available chords. The app arrives bare-bones without MIDI or Audiobus, but he assures me that, "those and other features are planned for the near future in an update." Ordinarily I would be skeptical of a first-time developer, but these are the guys that brought us the arpeggio hardware device.

Accordo iTunes Description:

Accordo is a retro inspired chord machine in the vein of the Suzuki Omnichord. Select the root note from the keyboard and choose from 8 different chords, then use the strum strip to play the chord just like an autoharp. Includes a built in rhythm machine and adjustable effects like wah and reverb.

Features & Adjustable Settings:

• Use the strum strip to strum chords or use chord buttons for full chords
• Built in rhythm machine with 10 drum patterns
• Combine chords. For example, hold down the "min" and "7th" buttons for a minor 7th chord.
• Separate tone shaping for chord buttons and strum strip.
• Volume balance between chord buttons and strum strip
• Sustain length for strum strip.
• Reverb for both chords and rhythm machine.
• Master volume
• Rhythm volume
• Tempo for rhythm machine
• Swing for rhythm machine
