Maria Calfa-DePaul - In a Mellow Way

Reader Maria Calfa-DePaul used the new Mellowsound app on this orchestral performance!

Video Description:

bought the upgrade for this app for $3.99 and I think it's well worth it. It's got an easy interface and it has a record feature where you can overdub to a new recording so that means you can layer it much like an old school reel to reel or 4 track. there's no undo so it requires just hoping for the best. Each iteration can be sent to another app. I sent them to Auria and just arranged the separate tracks together to complete the song. I used footage from outside of my house for the video and put it all together in Luma Fusion for iPad. I used my iPhone 6s to capture the footage and my iPad Pro for the editing. Thanks for watching.
As always many of my original songs can be downloaded on bandcamp or iTunes. Thanks for watching and supporting my music like share and subscribe if you can.

Ruismaker Noir by Bram Bos

Bram Bos brings us another iOS drum synth with the release of Ruismaker Noir! While it has been designed with drums in mind, it is open-ended enough to allow for some other explorations into rhythmic bass sounds. Ruismaker Noir is Universal, with support down to iOS 10, and arrives with AUv3.

Ruismaker Noir iTunes Description:

A different kind of drumsynth. Ruismaker Noir presents a hybrid approach between synthesized drums and rhythmic bass sounds - coming together in the fully integrated step sequencer. Throw in a nasty, dirty personality and you get something really new for the iOS platform.

Although Noir has a monophonic synthesis engine, the clever interplay with the sequencer and plethora of pitch/velocity modulation options can make it sound like many different sounds are playing, seamlessly blending into each other.

- AUv3 (Audio Unit) plugin, with integrated sequencer
- Basic standalone mode for tinkering or preset creation
- Universal; runs on any iDevice with iOS10 or higher
- All parameters accessible via MIDI CC and AU Params
- AU MIDI output from sequencer (requires iOS11+)
- Fullscreen plugin GUI in all compatible hosts
- Modest CPU and resource loads
- Handcrafted in the Netherlands

User manual available on

If you missed it we got a preview of this from The Sound Test Room last week. Embedded here is a new Hip-hop demo by Dj Puzzle of iPadLoops. There are some short demos on Bram's channel as well.

Stagelight by Open Labs LLC

Open Labs LLC released Stagelight on iOS! This is a cross-platform DAW; packed full of instruments, and a 1GB sample library. The iOS version arrives with AUv3 support! I can't find any demos of the iOS version yet, but it is quite reasonably priced. $15 unlocks everything on iOS, but if you are a cross-platform producer you can unlock it across all devices for $150.

Their iTunes description is very detailed, so I have had to dramatically abridge it here.
