Developer Paul the MusicMan shows off his upcoming ambient vocal synth TalkWorks. The idea of an ambient vocal synth sounds pretty fucking baffling, but I look forward to hearing more examples of its use!
This video previews the new for 2021 Talkworks effect plugin for iOS. This plugin simulates the sound of the human voice using formants and can be used to create smooth atmospheric soundscapes or glitch rythms using the built in sequencer.
This is an hour-long very deep but accessible walkthrough tutorial on Sugar Bytes Aparillo, equally relevant to both the iOS and desktop versions of the app, that will teach you pretty much all you need to know to understand how this wonderful synth works and start designing your own sounds in it. It also includes a short mid-section demoing some of the factory presets. I am completely blown away by this synth, it is totally unique, really powerful and - most importantly - hugely, hugely fun to design sounds in once you wrap your head around it. Copious timestamps have been included to help you find your way around the video! It takes about a week of work to research and make a video like this folks - please give it a thumbs-up, and subscribe for more if you find it useful!

The bank should be available next week. This video previews a single preset and I am holding a single note. The movement is created by the arpeggiator and the XY pad that to modifies the filter. A second audio track with vocal samples from the Memory Collection packs add some drama.
The Memory Collection packs are audio samples from Public Domain novies, TV shows and ads. The complete Collection has over 20,000 samples in 10 volumes regrouped by theme (Christmas, Horror Movies, Science-Fiction, etc.).
