Ruismaker Noir by Bram Bos

Bram Bos brings us another iOS drum synth with the release of Ruismaker Noir! While it has been designed with drums in mind, it is open-ended enough to allow for some other explorations into rhythmic bass sounds. Ruismaker Noir is Universal, with support down to iOS 10, and arrives with AUv3.

Ruismaker Noir iTunes Description:

A different kind of drumsynth. Ruismaker Noir presents a hybrid approach between synthesized drums and rhythmic bass sounds - coming together in the fully integrated step sequencer. Throw in a nasty, dirty personality and you get something really new for the iOS platform.

Although Noir has a monophonic synthesis engine, the clever interplay with the sequencer and plethora of pitch/velocity modulation options can make it sound like many different sounds are playing, seamlessly blending into each other.

- AUv3 (Audio Unit) plugin, with integrated sequencer
- Basic standalone mode for tinkering or preset creation
- Universal; runs on any iDevice with iOS10 or higher
- All parameters accessible via MIDI CC and AU Params
- AU MIDI output from sequencer (requires iOS11+)
- Fullscreen plugin GUI in all compatible hosts
- Modest CPU and resource loads
- Handcrafted in the Netherlands

User manual available on ruismaker.com

If you missed it we got a preview of this from The Sound Test Room last week. Embedded here is a new Hip-hop demo by Dj Puzzle of iPadLoops. There are some short demos on Bram's channel as well.

Handcrafted in the Nether of L A Ends. Fuck yeah. Thanks again and again Bram. Also the preset Hammerhead... Nice touch!

A fried ratted oscillator just a bit burnt, with crisp edges and slime on top. Can make you sick in fabulous way.

It would be great to have a pattern sequncer. I like the sounds a lot.

You don’t have to use its sequencer. Try it with StepPolyArp or Bram’s own rhythm or xox

Thank you. I have tried that, too, but the internal sequencer of Noir is one of its best features, and I would like to take better advantage of it.

Just curious, does Noir's sequencer do 8th note triplets? What's in that list that shows "16th" on the lower part of the screen.
