Voice Analyzer

iAudioApps brings their Voice Analyzer over to iOS as a Universal app. While most music apps for vocalists tend to be either effects or karaoke, this one hopes to improve your singing through informative formant spectograms.

Voice Analyzer iTunes Description:

Voice Analyzer is a real-time spectrum and spectrogram analyzer. It gives you a visual representation of your voice. You can also analyze the sounds of musical instruments, identify spoken words phonetically, or picture the calls of different animals. Generally speaking, the power of the Voice Analyzer is enormous.

The Singer’s Formant is a tonal ‘ring’ produced by a singer. It is visible on the sound spectrum of trained singers (around 2500 to 3500 Hz). This formant is absent in speech or in the spectrum of untrained singers. Its frequency strongly depends on the voice type.


  • Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)
  • Spectrogram analyzer (color, black and white, fast response)
  • Spectrum analyzer
  • Zoom and pan
  • Measure values
  • Move back analysis (just tap on the spectrogram)
  • PIP (picture-in-picture), allows the simultaneous analysis on the Spectrogram chart and Spectrum
  • Audio input can be supplied via built-in microphone and an external microphone (via the headphone jack, USB audio interface or through the iPhone/iPad dock connector - many Core Audio compliant devices)
  • Sharing charts (through mail, social networks, clipboard)
  • Frequency scale: linear and logarithmic
  • Amplitude scale: linear and logarithmic SPL/RMS (dBFS)
  • FFT window sizes: 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16384

Here's an excellent demo, with a male vocalist absolutely nailing the scales.

Cubase iC Air Gesture Control for Cubase

Steinberg has been exploring touch interfaces on the iPad for nearly a year, and now they're bringing a similar level of interactivity to the desktop with Cubase iC Air. This free download brings gesture control to Cubase, with support for both Leap Motion and Intel Perceptual webcams.

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to do a very good job of any of that, as revealed by the agonizing latency in their promo video.

Sleigh Bells

Sonokinetic has released Sleigh Bells, a simple Universal app for playing Sleigh Bell samples with Audiobus support.

Sleigh Bells iTunes Description:

Need Sleighbells to set the mood, shake away your woes or to accompany your caroling? You can't do any better than these. Recorded and produced by the Sonokinetic team responsible for high end audio productions like 'Minimal' and 'Toll', to name a few, this app is no toy. The sounds are the same that are used in the Kontakt virtual Instrument that is produced for use by professional media composers.

Included in the app are 6 different sleighbells, all with enough different samples to avoid obvious repetition (19 different hits per bell). The instruments used are sorted by number of bells attached.

They are:
• 25 bells
• 21 bells
• 17 bells
• 13 bells
• 6 bells
• 1 bell

You can play them separate or all together, there are two ways of playing the instrument; shake or tap, switchable with the little switch in the right hand bottom corner.

In Tap mode, the pads operate as touch drumpads, just tap any of the six pads to hear it’s bells ring. Tap mode would be advisable for precision playing, and for keeping your device in one piece. You can vary the velocity of the sample playback by tapping either lower or higher on the button, the low end of the button is the loudest, the higher up the softer it will sound.

In shake mode, you can turn on the bells you want to play with the 6 big buttons on the main screen, and when you gently shake your device, you will be able to get a jiggly rhythm going. (you can use two devices for cool polyrhythms too of course, if you have them available) Note that very subtle playing is not possible in the shake mode, due to limitations inherent to the way accelerometers work. Shaking on the beat to complement your caroling will be perfectly possible though.

There is no video for this one, but they have a collection of surprisingly cinematic SoundCloud demos.

Pumped Up Kicks x To Build a Home Rework

Sophia Lewis has posted her first YouTube video, and it is a hell of a way to start!

This impressive looping performance features a combination of gear and apps, with luscious vocal harmonies. There have been a lot of Pumped Up Kicks covers, but none have sounded this beautiful.

Brought to you live from my bedroom in Perth, Western Australia.

Gear Nerds: Composed with an iPad, Korg Kaoss Pad KP3, Ableton (for beats & midi synths) and a Voicelive Touch for vocal loops.

TriqTraq Update

iPhone jam app TriqTraq got a nice update this morning, adding sample management and the ability to record your own samples.

What's new in TriqTraq v1.3:

  • new integrated sample manager (KITS button) for direct access to samples, kits, and the new sample recorder
  • record your own sounds with the internal microphone (see below for instructions)*
  • WIST technology: jam together with a friend by syncing to another device over bluetooth
  • iOS 7 support

* To record your own sounds in KITS view, hold down the record button in the middle of the sample pads. 'Waiting for input' will appear in the monitor; the recording will start the moment you make a sound. Hold down the record button for the duration you want to record. After recording, STORE will appear on the pads, allowing you to store the recorded sample to a sample pad. Use the X (kill button) to cancel the recording. To make sure you can use your recordings in future sessions, make sure to save your sample kit or session. Recordings will then be copied to the user sample folder.
