Stereo Delay

playlist_add Wishlist

iTunes Description:

Blue Mangoo Stereo Delay is designed to be the go-to app a for simple, musically tasteful delay effect. The most unique feature is the way it handles panning of delayed echoes in the stereo field. Most stereo delays set different delay times for the left and right channels, resulting in the famous ping-pong effect. The problem with the ping-pong stereo delay sound is that it's too extreme, and our ears quickly tire of hearing the same pattern of left-then-right delay repeated hundreds of times. This plugin does it differently. Instead of setting delay taps at different times panned hard left or right, it always keeps the same delay time setting for both the left and right channels, but it has a unique mixing matrix controlling the feedback between the left and right channels so that each time the echo repeats, it appears in a new place in the stereo field. This is different from a simple panning delay, because older echoes and newer ones can simultaneously appear at different positions in the stereo field. The result is a very natural stereo echo that expands the stereo width of the sound but doesn't sound repetitive or electronic. It's constantly moving and changing.

The wet signal output has low-cut and hi-cut filters. The hi-cut filter tones down the harshness of the delay and makes it sound like natural echoes. The low-cut is especially useful for applying delay without making things sound muddy. At extreme settings the low cut can achieve a lo-fi telephone like delay sound.

The signal flow diagram is as follows:

Filters => LFO controlled pan => Stereo Delay Lines => Mixing matrix => Feedback to Delay Lines

The dry signal (not shown above) bypasses the entire effect. The key difference between this and other delays is the mixing matrix, which is similar to the ones used in feedback delay network reverb effects to mix between multi-channel delays without changing the volume of the sound. It is the matrix (not the LFO) that creates the illusion that the signal has moved to a different location in the stereo field each time it repeats through the delays.

*** THIS IS AN AUDIO UNIT ONLY EFFECT. IT REQUIRES A HOST APP SUCH AS AUM, Audiobus, GarageBand, OR Cubasis. IT DOES NOT RUN AS A STANDALONE APP. ***

Multi-Tap Delay AUv3 Plugin

playlist_add Wishlist

iTunes Description:

This is a AUv3 compatible audio effect which can be used as plugin with your favourite DAW such as Cubasis, Meteor, Auria or GarageBand. It supports a modern graphical interface and presets with stereo meters for monitoring signal levels.

The Multi-Tap delay takes the traditional digital delay to the next level. Instead of a single delay line you have up to 4 taps at your disposal. Each tap has an adjustable delay which can either be a value in milliseconds or a division of a beat. This is because the effect tracks the host tempo and can automatically match the beat by just pressing the sync button on each tap. Some taps can be free running while others synced to the beat.

What really makes this type of delay shine is that fact you can choose to either have all taps play back in series or stack them end on end in parallel mode. This allows for some very creative and unusual patterns which are not achievable using a conventional delay.

A dedicated LFO synced to the host tempo can also be used to apply modulation to each of the taps. You can modulate the frequency to create a chorus/ensemble type effect, vary the amplitude to create a vibrato effect, create an oscillating pan or even run the tap in reverse echo mode or through a band pass filter.

This is a great tool to have at your disposal, allowing you to some unusual delay effects not available with a conventional delay. All parameters fully support automation.

This is one of a suite of AUv3 compatible plugins which will also soon be available from 4Pockets.

Funktris

playlist_add Wishlist

iTunes Description:

Improve your groove with this rhythm action game: smash colorful bricks in time to funk music. Progress from guitar chord stabs to slap bass to classic drum beats across 3 game modes. Tap along or plug in your MIDI instruments for a funk workout through 27 levels. Jam out with the built in looper and drum machine, Funk Buddy.

• Backstory

I started to play drums a few years ago. Despite lessons, books, videos, and even a masterclass with a famous virtuoso drummer, learning drums was fun but really tough. I needed a way to cheat! I’m a professional game programmer of 20 years experience, including multi award winner LittleBigPlanet, and I use Roland’s TD-1KV electronic drum kit, so naturally I made a game to teach drums. Now with Funktris I can play stuff I never could play before! I hope it will work for you too.

The app enshrines good learning practice and applies it in an organized way. Slow down until you can play it right, then speed up again. With your hits drawn on a musical grid, you can see if you are hitting every note consistently right away, so you don’t waste time learning something wrong. Funktris automatically detects if you are nailing it and moves on to the next groove, or slows it down if you’re having trouble.

• Drums

The drum levels teach funk-damentals like syncopated 8th & 16th note kicks, open hat grooves, disco beats, ghost notes, odd snare placements and fills. Variations move drum hits around the bar like interlocking puzzle pieces, and you’ll recognize fragments of famous pop, rock and funk tunes on the way. Yes, it’s a game but you could use all of this in genuine songs, and if you can beat the game you’ll have a lot of drumming basics down as well as an impressive high score!

You can adjust the gameplay - perfectionist or just blast through, it’s up to you. Options demo the groove, ramp up the tempo, and help internalize the beat by switching off the backing track temporarily. Check your progress with the high score table.

• How to use Funktris with your drum set

- Get an iPad and put it above your toms or somewhere safe.
- Plug V-Drum USB midi out into a USB to lightning adaptor (Apple Camera Connection Kit) and into your iPad.
- Plug the iPad headphone out into the V-Drum mix in.
- Use the V-Drum audio/headphone out.
And voila, you get your native drum sounds blending with your iPad’s audio plus MIDI recognition of what you’re playing.

• Drum Machine

Funk Buddy lets you quickly program beats by mixing up banks of classic drum patterns, or do detailed editing if you want. Bank mode lets you select entire bars and then cycle between different patterns for hats, kick, snare, and cymbals when you press the button for that kit piece. Press bank mode again to switch between collections of grooves and fills. Microscope mode lets you program individual hits with the touch screen. This is all live as the track is playing, so you can lay down the basic idea quickly and then add some unique elements without losing the vibe.

• Looper

You can define up to 26 pages (4 bars each) and order them into a song. Each page lets you overdub rhythm loops from audio input (press the microphone button to dub). Given an audio interface such as FocusRite iTrack Solo or IK Multimedia iRig, guitarists will find this handy as a looper replacement. You can even time stretch the overdubs to slow them down to make it easy to learn the accompanying drum parts and solos. Don’t forget to name and save your creations!

Cool ways to use these features together:
- Program a beat you want to be able to perform and drum along to it to learn it.
- Record a guitar/bass riff for your beat and drum along to that.
- Rewrite the beat under the riff.
- Solo over your riff for hours.
- Turn on swing mode and make a quick 12 bar blues.
- Type out a song to work on and have all the sections easy to cycle.
- Quickly jot down some songwriting ideas while you’re waiting for that big DAW to boot up!
