AnaddrSynth's update includes a draw-your-own wave engine, fancily titled, "Arbitrary waveform generator." This update also comes with a grey UI, vastly improved over the initial cyan.
What's new in AdaddrSynth v1.2:
- MIDI: Hardware keyboard MIDI input support.
- Arbitrary waveform generator and wave engine, which is defined by drawing on a new pad interface.
- Sine waveform engine.
- Updated interface for new features and improved graphics and text for readability.
- New selections from oscillator destinations to support the Sine and Arbitrary waveforms.
- New modulation outputs from the LFO bank for the Sine and Arbitrary waveforms.
- Several bug fixes, including missing keyboard/keys sensing and button/settings logic.
- Improved settings save process.
Akai, by way of Retronyms, has released the first update for iMPC Pro. Thanks to M0nk3y for the heads-up!
It isn't particularly large, but includes the ability to delete your samples and a fix for the trimming. I believe this refers to slices not saving their position if you change them later. I just double-checked and that is indeed fixed in the new version.
iMPC Pro is still on sale at the intro price!
What's new iMPC Pro v1.1:
- New Feature: Delete Samples
- Bug fix: Trim end saved properly
- Improvements to InterApp audio
- Other small fixes...
NanoStudio developer Matt wrote in with some impressive news and some great news!
NanoStudio is turning 4 this weekend. That's quite an impressive feat! To celebrate the app is 50% off, down to $7 from $14.
The great news is that NanoStudio 2 is still in development. This year it has been getting his full-time attention. Although he's not prepared to reveal any of the new features, he plans for an early-2015 release!
A radical new reverb app is out now from apeSoft developer Alessandro Petrolati. Oddly this does not come under the apeSoft banner. Instead GliderVerb is listed as being from Amazing Noises, whose primary business is selling Ableton Live plugins. The video below showing it off is on Alessandro's personal YouTube channel though.
Wherever it comes from, it is going to my iPad!
GliderVerb iTunes Description:
GliderVerb is a “Reverberator with Glissandos” simulating a room gradually changing its shape. It is an expanded version of an algorithm created by James McCartney for his Supercollider 2 programming language!
The original algorithm had no user-variable parameters: this device adds a series of parameters to create a wide palette of effects; from evolving reverberations to granular disintegration to smooth resonances!
What a wild idea for a reverb algorithm. You can test it out fully, but need to pop for the IAP if you want to use Audiobus, IAA, or mic input. You'll be presented with the purchase dialog as soon as you hit the Mic-AB-IAA button in the top left.
Breslaux has an exceptionally well produced live looping video; using his iPad mini, a Boss RC-300, and a sax!
