Chameleon AUv3 Sampler Plugin by have released 19 AUv3 effects, and today they expand into new territory with Chameleon AUv3 Sampler Plugin. This has a clever design that supports standalone and IAA sample recording, but when you're ready to play it can be loaded up as an AUv3 instrument! From there you have a lot of sound design options!

Chameleon AUv3 Sampler Plugin:

Chameleon is an AUv3 compatible sampler instrument plugin for your favourite DAW.

The program can run as a standalone app in order to record audio samples from the internal microphone or professional audio interface. It also supports incoming Inter-App Audio connections for sampling directly from other iOS applications, however it is primarily intended to be used as an AUv3 Instrument plugin for applications such as Cubasis, AUM, Auria, Meteor, Gargeband etc. The plugin can additionally be loaded as an AUv3 effect in order to record audio passing through it from other AUv3 Instrument sources, which makes it a very versatile and useful tool.

So what is a sampler? A sampler is a device that allows you to imitate other instruments with just a few short audio snippits. Although it comes with a library of presets it also allows you to create your own. You do this by recording multiple audio clips and mapping them to the notes on a MIDI keyboard and Chameleon does the rest using a sophisticated pitch shifting algorithm to fill in the blanks. Recorded samples can either be layered or mapped freely over a 7 octave range and saved as individual presets. Presets are then organised into custom categorised banks which can be exported and shared with others.

Just think, you can sample all your favourite synth sounds and carry them around on your iPhone/iPad without the inconvenience of lugging heavy gear around with you. Sample anything from musical instruments to vocal snippits, drum machines or ambient noises. The possibilities are endless.

Recording is incredible easy. Just create a New Patch and press record. Chameleon will wait for you to play a note before recording begins. Once recorded press the LEARN button and tap the note range on the virtual or MIDI keyboard to map the sample. Repeat this as many times as required, tweak the settings and save your patch. Additionally you can setup loop points with the ability to apply crossfade.

Chameleon also has a quite sophisticated arpegiator which allows you to create complex mixtures of notes and chords with glide, hold and re-triggering options.

On board reverb, digital delay and chorus effects are available to give your samples a more polished touch. We also include 4 touch pads for quickly dialing in on a sound or for easy effect automation. Configurable touch ADSR and modulation options are available too.

Chameleon can also import audio samples using iOS Files integration or you can make use of Copy / Paste to quickly drop one of more samples into a patch. You can also freely edit samples using the built in tools such as normalise, fade in, fade out, crop, clear options etc.

You can run Cameleon as a standalone app and map external MIDI keyboards (Bluetooth MIDI support also included) and perform audio sampling outside of your DAW. This is provided for convenience since you can't record input when hosted as an AUv3 Instrument plugin. As mentioned earlier you can also load the app as an AUv3 Effect plugin too which allows you to record directly from other AUv3 instruments.

Yes some DAW's have built in samplers which only have the ability to playback libraries provided with the software. Chameleon allows you to built your own libraries of sounds and share them with others. There's a budding rapper in you dying to get out and we have just the tool!

Voice Over Production with Auria Pro

Reader Nic Nice just posted his first tutorial video and he casually crushed it!

There's more to the audio engineering realm than just music making. Here is an excellent example of how you can use Auria to produce a radio station's ident bumper. It also helps if you sound like a radio voice guy.

Video Description:

Just a quick demonstration on one way I process vocal audio in Auria Pro. I made this sweeper/liner for a demo I’m working on, there is no DJ Joe Mama (at least that I know of). I don’t cover how I made the sweeper, just a quick idea of how to tweak a voice over. I used Turnado to stutter my voice as well as WOW2 for a phone effect, but again I don’t cover that it in this video. Hopefully you like this and subscribe so I know it’s worth making another video. Thanks for your time. LumaFusion, iPad Pro, Auria Pro, Fab Filter Pro MB, PSP Channel strip, Kymatica AUFX: Push, radio imaging
