Cube Synth from VirSyn

VirSyn, makers of Addictive, have released a new synth app that combines Additive synthesis with multi-stage morphing!
This is pretty incredible, like a combination of Addictive and Animoog, with some nice sounding results in the demo video.

Cube Synth iTunes Description:

Cube Synth is a groundbreaking new software instrument giving you the power and flexibility of additive synthesis together with easy editing and morphing capabilities. Macro parameters allow you to control this beast with unequalled ease.

Intelligent sound morphing capabilities enables you to easily create complex evolving sound scapes, vocal phrases or stunning rhythms simply by choosing up to four sound sources from a predefined set. Then add one of the predefined envelopes and a unique, complex sound preset containing thousands of parameters is created! If you want to dive deeper into the inner secrets of this synthesis monster you can manipulate each parameter individually to get precise control over the sound. A number of high level parameters such as Brightness and Harmonic spread control hundreds of synthesis parameters in a way modeled after the inner workings of natural instruments.

Cube Synth gives you also a new method of getting randomly generated sound patches in a way you never experienced before: roll the dice! Every single try gives you a new unique sound patch, really every try, promised…

Audanika Harmony Theory Blog Returns

After several months hiatus, Audanika is bringing back the Harmony Theory Blog with this informative video.

Video Description:

The major chord is the most often used three tone combination in musical pieces. But why? The reason is, that nearly every natural tonal sound contains a major chord in its overtone series. If you listen to a human voice, a trumpet tone or a violin sound, you will indirectly listen to a major chord.

In the following video I have routed a Nave sound via Audiobus to Level 24. With the latter app I visualize the overtones and filter it in a way that it become audible. If you listen closely to the demo, you will recognize that the first six overtones build a major chord.

Cassini & Sunrizer Jam with Hardware

MATRIXSYNTH found this very synthy jam by, featuring Sunrizer and Cassini with a Roland MKS-80!

Video description:

In the video I have focused on illustrating how one might use two iPad synthesizer apps and a hardware synthesizer together including Cassini, Sunrizer, and the MKS-80. The BS3X is used as both the iPad interface and MKS-80 controller. No computer is required, but a simple change of cable allows for a computer to be integrated into this setup because the MOTU UltraLite interface and standalone mixer has MIDI I/O. In other words two MIDI interfaces are still necessary with a computer, but prior to this experiment I was only using the BS3X as a controller for the MKS-80 and bypassing the class compliant USB MIDI interface functionality. Since the USB hub was required I also added the QuNexus to the setup. This was dedicated to feeding notes into the arpeggiator in Cassini. The keyboard controller was split so that in the low end I could play the MKS-80 effect then tweak it with the BS3X knobs and sliders as it decayed. In the upper end of the same keyboard I played a lead sound programmed in Sunrizer.
