Buy Stria on iTunes: $8.99

iTunes Description for Stria:

Multilevel Interactive Sound Synthesizer
“Stria” is the title of a very important composition by John Chowning and I would like to say that this computer music piece rapresents the manifest of Frequency Modulation technique applied to audio synthesis, invented by Mr. Chowning himself.

  • Up to 240 Frequency Modulation Oscillators or simple Wavetable Additive
  • Five Spectral Pitch Grid Generators (Geometric, Harmonic, Fibonacci, Scalar, Temperated)
  • Event Pitch Jittering
  • Event Envelope
  • Oscilloscope and animated XY Pad
  • Effects chain: Doppler, Chopper, Glitch Gen, Sync Grain, Spectral Arpeggiator, FDN Reverb, Dynamic Compressor/Expander
  • Save unlimited Snapshots number
  • Pad interpolating snapshots
  • MIDI/Network Control Change input
  • Connection Control: Midi, Scrub Y and Accelerometer X/Y
  • Capture Master Audio Output
  • Run Audio in Background
  • Embedded User's manual
  • Up to 25 built-in snapshots presets
  • Sonoma Audio copy and paste
  • Dropbox supports
  • Audiobus compatible

Unfortunately the only sample we have of the app is not something I can embed here, as it requires Flash.

So instead here is a video from Marc Doty about the most (in)famous FM synthesizer, Yamaha's DX7. This video does an excellent job of demonstrating how I can say that, although I haven't played with Stria yet, I would much rather play with it than a DX7!

NSFW: Put on headphones! Marc says "fuck" a lot, and with enthusiasm! This is part of a larger 20 minute tribute to the DX7.

Tutorial: PPG WaveMapper

Wolfgang Palm has a new tutorial out, this time for his latest app, PPG WaveMapper! It is so inspiring to see tutorials from developers. Especially big fancy developers like Wolfgang Palm, inventor of wavetable synthesis!

Audiobus Updates for NanoStudio, xMod, Noisemusick

The long anticipated Audiobus update for NanoStudio has arrived!

What's new in NanoStudio v1.4:

  • Audiobus support for input (sampling) and output (main mix)
  • Virtual MIDI inputs for note and controller data
  • MIDI input transpose
  • 4 extra banks for your Eden presets
  • Fixed 'empty sample' bug when pasting from some Waldorf apps

That bit at the end about Waldorf apps is interesting, because the only Waldorf app that is currently on iTunes is the Rocket Control; which wouldn't be pasting anything.

There is also a note from Blip Interactive on the official NanoStudio forum about MIDI out:

I would have liked to add MIDI output and sync, but both these features would have required extensive changes to the sequencer to get the timing rock-solid and unfortunately I don't have the time to do this right now.

Buy NanoStudio on iTunes: $14.99


Also joining Audiobus today is xMod, an FM synth, and the drone synth Noisemusick.

What's new in xMod v1.3:

  • Better sound quality and effects!!
  • Audiobus compatible
  • Core MIDI compatible - Sends AND receives MIDI including program (sound patch) information
  • Now runs in background mode
  • Fixed file management - can now delete files within app.

Buy xMod on iTunes: $4.99
