Pure Synth® Platinum by MIDIculous LLC

MIDIculous LLC released Pure Synth® Platinum, a massive rompler/synth with a commensurate file size. Fortunately they let you choose to download the sample library as needed, so it could be as light as 3.2GB if you only use factory presets.

There is a truly astounding amount of samples and synthesis going on in here. On top of the 21,619 samples and 108 wavetables, there is also a whole bunch of Impulse Responses from high quality hardware reverb units. Please pay close attention to the hardware requirements at the bottom.

Pure Synth arrives on sale for $10, until the 22nd of June.

Pure Synth® Platinum iTunes Description:

Pure Synth® Platinum is a full-blown rompler/synthesizer for your iOS device. Neither the synth engine or the sample engine is an afterthought: Both engines are fully capable and feature-rich. The romper section contains a well rounded assortment of analog, synth, string, digital, and acoustic instruments. The beauty of Pure Synth® is the ability to mix between the two worlds of analog and sample based instruments. From rich and warm pianos, to lush strings and articulated woodwind sounds, your thirst for real world instruments will be quenched. This is probably one of the most extensive, feature-rich, and preset laden plugins you can get for iOS device. PS: We also have an affinity for 80’s and 90’s digital synths, so look for your favorite old school sounds in there as well.


When you first purchase, you will have access to all of the analog oscillators. You can use as-is without loading your device with the 6GB sample content, but there will be no presets. Go to the Settings——>IAP section and you will be able to download two sets of IAP

1. Factory Preset Samples - Contains 3.23GB of the samples needed for the presets.
2. Factory Samples Additional Content - Contains 2.7GB of the remaining sample content that is not used in any of the presets

So in the future, when we add additional content and IAP, you are free to delete the sample content to free up your device for other content.

Mozaic Plugin Engine Update

Mozaic Plugin Engine, from Bram Bos, got a major update to the scripting language!

What's new in Mozaic Plugin Engine v1.0.3.1:

Thanks for all the helpful feedback and support.
Version 1.0.3 has a whole lot of new features, fixes and improvements including the much-requested Pad Labels!

1. Pad labels
You can now label pads. The obvious function call for this is:
LabelPad padnum, {Label}

2. Handling of AU Parameters
I completely reworked AU parameter handling to be more robust. It should now work as expected in all directions; sending them into the plugin, and getting them out of the plugin, either via the GUI or via scripts.

3. Scripts can now be much longer (up to 2500 lines).

4. Maximum number of user variables raised to 200

5. Improved keyboard support and behavior on iPad

6. Functions for keeping track of Note States
Basically, this offers you a 16-channel x 128-note matrix for storing values to keep track of whatever you're doing with MIDI notes:
SetNoteState channel, note, value
value = GetNoteState channel, note

7. FillArray now accepts an optional index and number of cells to fill:
FillArray variable, value [,numcells]
FillArray a[50], 64, 25 // fill 25 cells with the value 64, starting with a[50]

8. Use note names and scale names in strings
Log {The root note is: }, RootNoteName
Log {The current scale: }, ScaleName
Log {The third scale: }, (ScaleName 2)
LabelKnob 0, {Note: }, (NoteName 3) // Note: D#
LabelKnob 0, {Note: }, (NoteName 40, YES) // Note: E2 --> this shows the octave with the note name
These 'macros' work in all Label and Log functions..

9. OnMetroPulse timing improved when using extreme metronome resolutions (> 250)

10. PresetScale now also works with numerical values:
PresetScale 3
Log ScaleName // MinorMelodic

11. Exit
You can use the Exit command to immediately exit an event handler

12. Array initializer bugs fixed
There were some issues when using mathematical operators in array initializers

13. MASSIVE internal refactoring of GUI and event handling code, resulting in higher performance and less complex code (=fewer bugs and easier maintenance ;-) ).

14. GetXYMorphValue was flipped. Flipped it back.

15. Pitchbend bug fixed

16. OnHostStart/OnHostStop are now fired before all other events

17. Really long labels could sometimes cause a crash - fixed

WHAT APP IS THAT??!!? - iPad Musicking Questions Answered

Developer Chris Randall from Analog Industries and Audio Damage, answers the biggest question he gets on Instagram. I imagine most of you already know the answer is AUM.

The rest of the video is still entertaining and informative. At one point Chris makes a definitive declaration about the correct pronunciation of AUM's name. He states that it should be pronounced, "Eh You Em." I disagree. I'm pretty sure it should be pronounced like the Sanskrit word Aum, sometimes spelled as Om.

I asked AUM developer Jonatan Liljedahl to break the tie.

Actually I think both is fine. The name is both an acronym for AUdio Mixer, and a word-play/reference to the Sanskrit ॐ, hinting at the all-compassing wholeness of the AUM environment :)

Bah! What does he know?

Developers are usually wrong about the way to pronounce their creations anyhow. Most famously Steve Wilhite, the inventor of the Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), insists that .gif files should be pronounced: Jiff. This would make sense if it were a Giraffe Interchange Format, or a Genghis Khan Interchange Format, but since we're talking specifically about Graphics it is abusrd for the hard G to suddenly become a soft one.

An attempt to answer the most frequent questions I get on my Instagram account, along with some light-hearted complaining, and what I feel are some hilarious pokes at Red Means Recording.

iPadLoops: Woodstepper Demo - Quick Start Guide

Dj Puzzle from iPadLoops did a Quick Start Guide for the new Woodstepper. This sampler sequencer is quite unique. You definitely need to see Woodstepper in action to fully appreciate it!

Update: And now there is a Part 2 of this Tutorial, showing how to use Woodstepper as a looper in AUM.

Video Description:

Hey friends! I just moved to a new studio space so please forgive me for the video quality as I haven't had a chance to test the waters and get the lighting dialed in yet. This is the first video I shot in the new space and now I know what tweaks are needed. With that said here is a quick start guide for Woodstepper. I just wanted to get you started using it as a DSP and sampler within AUM. It is a very deep app so please understand that I am considering a second video , part 2 if you will, with more in depth explanations of the MIDI and Oscillator features. I hope this gives you a general idea as to what this awesome app can do! You can skip to the sampling section of this video by clicking here 10:14
