Reader Thomas Büchel did some mad science with samples from random Coast To Coast radio shows, a fine collection of Moog gear, and an iPad running two instances of the Fly Tape 2 AUv3!
Here I'm using the iPad where I'm, besides mixing my Moogs, playing with a random Coast To Coast Art Bell radio show.
Two instances of Fly Tape 2, one for the radio show, one for the DFAM, mapped to the Novation Launch Control.
other apps used:
Audio Damage Enso for looping the HiHats from the Mother, FAC Alteza, Audio Damage Replicant 2, Amazingnoises Reverb, Klevgrand Haaze and AUM
Fred Anton Corvest has made FAC Drumkit available for pre-order on iOS. The wildly elaborate new drum synth is on sale for $14 ahead of its release on Friday. The way this app lets you fine tune the envelopes is quite impressive. The total freedom over the shape and character of each part is almost daunting. I think I'm scared.

Everyone agrees that the drums are a very important key element of almost every genre out there, they are the fondation of a song. We are all fan of acoustic drums and drum machines, they each have different characters and strengths. FAC Drumkit combines both world, samples and synthesis, in order to provide new exciting and unique sounds. As a rule of thumb, the synthesizer section brings the body of the sound, and the sampler the unique character. Both parts are layered together and contain essential parameters to ensure they won't clash and will sit well together.
On top of the samples and synthesizer section, FAC Drumkit brings unique Amp and Pitch envelopes with precise control points to modify the curve in a gentle or extreme way. The envelopes play a very important part in the signal path because, thanks to their flexibility, they allow designing very special transition. Indeed, the envelope of a Clap is probably the best one to illustrate the benefit of such envelopes created by points. The burst kind of sound is very hard to replicate with classic ADSR, it's not the case in FAC Drumkit. Needless to say, thanks to the control points the pitch transitions are also more interesting and precise. The value of each control point can also be altered manually, to set the root note of a kick for example.
FAC Drumkit is for everyone, as sound designer you will be able to synthesize your own drums in a fun and creative way. On the other hand, if you are looking for instant results, use the provided presets or load your favourite sample pack in the sample section of the 16 voices.
The first in an occasional series of bass improvisations. I use a Rob Allen Deep 4 fretless bass into a Focusrite Scarlett 18i8 interface, which is connected to a 2021 iPad Pro. GarageBand is used for recording, with FAC Chorus and Eventide Spring for effects.

Neon Silicon released Spirangle, a multi-tap multi-delay with feedback. This AUv3 is 100% free!
SpirangleSpirangle is a delay. It's actually two delays. The first delay is a three-tap delay. The second delay is a feedback delay. The three taps from the first delay are sent through three independent filters. The three filters are SVF filters with plenty of available resonance and drive. The filters can have stereo separation applied to them. The three taps are individually routed, pre-filter, to the feedback delay mix section. The feedback delay mix section also includes an input which is a sum of the three delay taps taken after the filters. The resulting mix is then sent through the feedback delay. The output of the feedback delay then goes into a stereo effect unit that does LFO driven panning, chopping, tremolo, and left-right ping-pong manipulation to the signal. The output of the effect unit is summed with the input signal and sent back into the cycle.
