Wravend for iPhone

Nakano Syun found a new noise maker!

Wravend for iPhone generates some pretty interesting tones in his latest video. This looks like a kind of Visual BitWiz.

iTunes Description:

A synthesizer allowing control of pitch, shape, frequency/amplitude modulation and low-pass filter by hand-drawing of waveforms.

The screen has three areas; waveform drawing area, control selection, utility functions.

In the waveform drawing area you can drag your finger to change or draw a new shape that affects the sounds playing.

Control selection has eight options that control the sound -
Red: Primary waveform.
Orange: Primary frequency (i.e. the main melody).
Yellow: Secondary waveform (used as amplitude or frequency modulation of the first waveform, or as a second oscillator).
Green: Secondary frequency.
Cyan: Envelope (i.e. the volume shape for the playing sound).
Blue: Envelope frequency.
Purple: Mixer control, between the playing sound and any running loop.
Magenta: Low-pass filter cutoff frequency.

TB Stuff have released free iPad and iPhone layouts for Arturia MiniV, the virtual Minimoog for PC and Mac.

Some sell it… Us, we give it to you !!!

It looks really good though, so this is certainly worth checking out. Someone else piss these guys off so we get more freebies!
