thesoundtestroom: FM Player Preview

Doug Woods from thesoundtestroom brings us a preview for FM Player. This is another app brought to us by Matthew Fecher from AudioKit! FM Player is a ROMpler using samples from a Yamaha DX7 and DX7II. So if you want FM sounds without mucking around in the mire of FM synthesis this might be a good option for you!

Update: Matthew has indicated that FM Player is going to be free!

Wizdom Music Updates

Wizdom Music LLC released iOS 11 updates today to GeoShred, MorphWiz, and Tachyon. They all mention a "Fix for iOS 11.1 edge delay" which sounds ominous. I'm not sure if that is something other apps will need to be concerned about, or if this is specific to the way Wizdom music apps are controlled. I sent in a request for comment earlier this morning, but haven't heard back yet. I will update this post when I know more!

Update: I now know too much. moForte (the guys actually doing the code for Wizdom) got back to me with a lot of details. There were two major problems addressed here. The first is with the way iOS 11's dock is triggered by a drag up from the bottom of the screen. This was a simple fix to override the system gesture, but a necessary one as Jordan himself discovered during a soundcheck after upgrading to iOS 11.

The second "edge delay" problem is a bit trickier to explain and is a new one for iOS 11.1. They noticed a weird latency when pressing around the left, bottom, and right edges of the screen. This is where iOS is watching for system gestures; like app switching. This was introducing latency of up to 800ms while iOS tries to decide:

"Are you doing a system gesture, or should I let the app handle that thing you just did?"

This requires another override! While the programming language Swift is a lot prettier than Obj C, Apple's SDK still suffers from some seriously ugly looking code. This is the actual iOS SDK function that fixes this problem: setNeedsUpdateOfScreenEdgesDeferringSystemGestures()

soundfruuze Update

Experimental live sampler soundfruuze was updated with 3 new "lane" types, and 5 effects! The update also includes a much needed limiter on the master out to help tame some of the wild sounds!

What's new in soundfruuze v1.2:

v 1.2
* Three new lane types!
- FFT Looper — works the same way as Looper lane but uses FFT algorithm for playback allowing constant pitch for any playback speed and the same FFT effects (gate and phase randomisation)
- Granular Stream — the same granular-freeze engine with all parameter randomisation and special UI control
- Speed lane — vertical touch position controls playback speed, horizontal position can be assigned to any parameter

* Five effects:
- Frequency shifter
- Ring modulation
- Sample-and-hold (" lo-fi")
- HP/LP filter
- Reverb
The amount of effect can be set for each sound individually or for all sounds produced by one lane

* Limiter added on master output
* Enhanced looper control: new "size&volume" lane mode. drag to select the time for the new loop and release touch to create it. Vertical position controls the volume of the loop that will be created. You can create muted loop by dragging at the bottom of the lane.
* B buffer when in "record output" now doesn't record self
* When you change lane type it sets up with default x/y controls and sliders
* "Reset slider values" button added to lane type selector
* Several fixes for the sound quality in granular nodes
* Bug fixes and UI improvements

Z3TA+ Update

Following the reaction from Momentum's release two weeks ago, Cakewalk has released an update to Z3TA+! This is the first time the beloved synth has been updated since 2015, and is now iOS 11 compatible!

After the vitriol hurled at Cakewalk on the Audiobus forum, we have an excellent outcome for the community. The system works! I'm not sure what that system is exactly, but I believe we owe the AB crowd our gratitude. Thanks for calling Cakewalk "twats" I guess...

What's new in Z3TA+ v1.3.3:

Alive and updated for iOS 11. We fixed the crash when sharing presets, and also fixed the preset list appearing blank the first time it is opened.
