WaveStorm Update

WaveStorm, from Sonic Sector Ltd, is a wavetable synth that was released in 2017. It has been mutually ignored by the community and the developer. All of that changes today with an update that adds AUv3! The update also refreshes the wavetable creator, and adds new filter and reverb modules.

What's new in WaveStorm v2.0:

AuV3. The synth now runs as a plugin inside your host apps.
Vastly more powerful wavetable creator.
New multi type filter and reverb modules.
Instantly randomise a new session.
Now load LFO waveforms from your collection.
Control the synth with external MIDI controls.
Control multiple parameters at once.

Lots of small upgrades across the app. These will be documented in the guides and articles on the website or accessible via the main app.
Performance and stability improvements.

Hello good people!

Yes this one is a little bit strange but it can be useful in doing “experimental” stuff. This new version of what use to be Scythe synth works only on iOS 13.1 and higher. Last night it worked fine in AUM as a source and Dystopia as FX. Some very weird sounds were produced. It appears to be stable. But there is a serious flaw with the synth. When opened in AUM you can not resize the synth window properly. The synth window does not have a slider so You must keep it maximized and that takes the whole screen. Additionally you need a keyboard to trigger a sound so important XY pads are hard to reach. I was using it by triggering keyboard with the Hold button engaged and then I would hide keyboard to be able to use the synth.

Best regards to all!

Can confirm. It currently works best in Audiobus. I’ve contacted the developer at mailto:system@sonicsector.co.uk and urge others to do the same. This synth deserves a better response.
Hi there, I just bought it plus wave creator and some wavetable packs, I should have test it first.
Im using NanoStudio 2 and that is utterly unusable for me:( it is somewhat better in Cubasis 2 but still slow and erratic. Crashed on me in very first couple of minutes:( I’m not entirely sure If my old iPad Pro 10’5 (iPadOS 13.5.1) is unable to run it but since it says it’s compatible it should. Will contact developer to find out more, in case anybody reads this and have same setup please drop line here about your experience.
Yeah, I want the wave creator but am mildly worried about the apps stability unless running in AUM seems ok so far... Cheers the former scythe that also was underloved. This app shalst prevail in updates or fixes a rabbit in the sky Told Me.

I received very quick response from developer and apparently stability issues will be addressed in upcoming updates so hopefully it will run in any host without problems ;) fingers crossed 🤞 Cannot wait tho, I heard it and it really sounds great plus that wavetable creator ohh
