Eurypharynx Virtual Analog Syntheizer

S4, makers of Rhythm Composer, S4-Drum, and SSSSYNTH, have released a new $2 Virtual Analog Synthesizer for iPad.

Or as S4 puts it: "A Virtual Analog Synthesizer duplicating Analog Synthesizer."

I'm not sure what the fuck that means, but in a world full of virtual analog synths you need to bring something new to the table.

Euryphraynx looks like it achieves that nicely, with a modulation matrix! S4 might not be very good at English, but they managed to put together my favorite phrase. Euryphraynx was an instant buy for me as soon as I saw "modulation matrix" on iTunes!

I encountered my first bug immediately, with hung MIDI notes from my keyboard and no panic button! The interface is kind of finicky too. However there is a lot to recommend this besides the mod matrix. Both of the two oscillators can morph between two different waveforms, and there are 24 waveforms to choose from! There is also an elaborate Mod Sequencer, with 14 different parameters that can be sequenced individually.

iTunes Description:

This is a Virtual Analog Synthesizer duplicating Analog Synthesizer. 4-Voice Polyphonic Synthesizer. Eurypharynx is a 4-Voice Polyphonic Virtual Analog Synthesizer. Basically it models features after Analog Synthesizer.

But more importantly, it combines the following five remarkable features.

  • In each OSC, you can select two waveforms and also morph them.
  • Flexible patching operation is available with Matrix Patching.
  • Alter numerous parameters sequentially with Modulation Sequencer.
  • Intuitive performance is available with XY Pad Control.
  • It is possible to save up to 256 patches.

Cassini Update and Sale

Both the iPad and iPhone version of iceGear's Cassini Synth were updated to add a new formant filter.

A formant filter is how you get "Talking Bass" and other vocal sounds out of synths, by filtering the frequency to make vowel sounds.

What's New:

  • Formant filter type
  • Arpeggiator loop length setting
  • Audio buffer size setting
    The audio buffer size affects the amount of latency and the CPU usage. Higher setting will reduce clicking noise at high CPU usage, but also cause more latency. Lower setting will also improve the tempo stability of arpeggiator.
  • Assignable controller knobs on keyboard screen respond to incoming MIDI
  • Improved sound quality
  • Minor bug fixes

Soundbeam Updated, Still Free!

Evil Window Dog's Soundbeam just got an update today that lets you record up to 15 seconds of audio and render a video of the results. I can't embed the demo video though, because they flagged to prevent that. It uses a song that also probably blocked in Germany and on mobile. So here is a the release promo instead!

PPG WaveGenerator FREE Version!

Wolfgang Palm has released a free version of PPG WaveGenerator! The key difference between the free and $20 versions is you don't get to play with the synthesis bits in the free version, but you can play with all of the presets to hear how this synth sounds.

"The strength of the PPG app is the sound, this can only be experienced when hearing it. Sometimes apps are not suited to the person buying them and we thought having to buy an app to find this out was not good. This allows everyone to try before they buy."
-Wolfgang Palm

iTunes Description:

PPG FREE is a feature-limited version of the PPG WaveGenerator App. All editing functions are disabled, voice count is 5 maximum with a sample rate of 44.1Khz, but the user still has access to a selection of the incredible library from the full version. To benefit from the full power of the PPG synth engine users will need to purchase the PPG WaveGenerator App from the App Store.

My tutorial will probably not be useful for the free version, but I'll include it here to show off what the full version can do.
