iAbyssal by AtmoSynth

Hardware manufacturer AtmoSynth just released iAbyssal! This Universal "virtual analog photo-synthesizer" is controlled by light from your iOS device's front-facing camera. AtmoSynth has been making experimental hardware synths for quite a while now, and this app is based on their hardware Abyssal synth from 2008.

iAbyssal arrives with Audiobus 3 and IAA! While these are welcome additions in any app, they're especially nice to see from a first-time iOS app developer!

iAbyssal iTunes Description:

* "Photocell" (frontal camera) calibration functionality for adjusting its sensitivity to different environmental light conditions.
* Can be used in low-light environments thanks to an inverse calibration feature.

* White noise generator.
* Two low frequency oscillators (LFO) which can modulate various parameters of the oscillator, noise generator and filter.
* One Filter with low pass and high pass mode and resonance (peak) control.
* Adjustable delay effect.
* Preset memory including many factory presets for using as a starting point and easily create your own sounds.

All drumsounds in Elastic Drums (besides the kick) were designed with the recent Futuristic Synths IAP. Mangling and FX on the drums are all internal fx of Elastic Drums, some of them mapped to the pads of the external midi controller.

All synth pads (Model15, Animoog) are sequenced by Xynthesizr in the background, also the piano (iGrand Piano) and the arpeggio (iSEM). Volume and filter cutoff are also controlled with the midi controller.

Whipping Girl - Find + Replace

Reader Isobel Morris joined forces with Matt Sweeney to form Whipping Girl! This duo explores some seriously challenging Pop-Punk territory and Isobella's gender transition, with a litany of iOS apps used on many of the tracks. The album began over 3 years ago before Isobella had come out as Trans. The album's growth and release coincides with her official name change this month!

I've been a serious student of singing for over 10 years, when I decided to move beyond just singing in the shower. This study has not made me a particularly good vocalist, but I am now an excellent judge of vocal qualities. I found it extremely fascinating to listen to the variations in her voice throughout this album. It's shrill at times, and I'd be lying if I said it was good, but it is incredibly brave throughout. I can't even imagine trying to do an album while hormones are playing merry hell on my vocal chords.
