AudioKit Digital D1 Synth got an interesting update adding what they describe as, "kind of like Ableton Link, but, for Tuning." In addition to importing tunings from Scala files, you can now send tunings from Synth One to Digital D1 while they're both playing.
The update also includes more merciless teasing about AUv3 support. Folks who buy D1 before the big AUv3 update will discover they now have a Platinum Edition of the app. This entitles you to free expansion sets. To check if you qualify you can look at the Preset Panel from inside of the app.
What's new in AudioKit Digital D1 Synth v1.0.4:
Thanks for patience! We are always upgrading D1:
LOADS OF MICROTONALITY FEATURES ADDED:
+ Digital D1 can now open Scala Files: On your iPad select a link to a Scala file ending in ".scl" and you will see "Copy to Digital D1" as an option.
+ You can now use AudioKit Synth One to send Scales to Digital D1!
This functionality is kind of like Ableton Link, but, for Tuning.
How does this work? Go to the "Tune" panel in Synth One. There's a new button called "TuneUp" (starting w/ version 1.0.3), click on that to open D1. You can also share master tuning setting.
+ New "Back" Button & Scale "Reset" buttons in D1 when using a scale from another app.
+ NEW Master Tuning knob on the bottom of the "FX" panel in D1 It goes from 432 to 440. If you want a wider range, you can set the tuning from Synth One
+ D1 now loads last used preset when restarted
+ Under the hood: Over 3,000+ lines of code have been re-worked as we fine-tune AUv3.
We are working every single day of the week on it. And, won't rest until we get it to you. We're in it for the marathon. We'll always be updating and adding cool stuff to Digital D1.
ONE MORE THING: If you were an early adopter of D1, we have a special gift. Your copy of Digital D1 will be upgraded to the Platinum Edition in this update. Meaning, you'll get all future sound expansions free for life. We've got a few great expansions planned this year. And, you'll get every one of them for free as a thank you for your early support and patience. If your copy of D1 qualifies, you'll see the "Platinum Edition" text on the Preset Panel after this update.
COMING TO DIGITAL D1 SOON:
+ AUv3 Plugin functionality
+ Free & IAP Expansion Cards (All Free with Platinum Edition)
+ MPE support
+ Video Tutorial/Instructions on Using D1
+ More bug fixes and upgrades
The app will just get better & better - stay tuned!
