playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

Ribbons is an extraordinarily fun and expressive musical instrument.

Inspired by early electronic instruments such as the Ondes Martenot and the Theremin, Ribbons (formerly "Ondes") emulates the fluid playing style of those classic instruments with an interface and synthesis engine firmly grounded in the present day.

Whether you’re gliding through melodies & chord changes or creating dense polyphonic sci-fi soundscapes, Ribbons is an instrument unlike any you’ve played before.

Arpeggionome Pro

playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

An expressive, matrix-controlled arpeggiator designed to play with your thumbs. Control super fast arpeggios with precision, and apply pitchbend, tremolo, and vibrato with the iPad’s accelerometer.

• "Arpeggionome makes amazing patterns in arrays of pulsing circles" (Peter Kirn, Create Digital Music)
• "A masterpiece in design and functionality" (smitematter.com)
• Rated as the "Most Creative MIDI App" by iPadMusic.com
• "Arpeggionome Pro is a very very powerful arpeggiator that can really take your music to the next level" (Chip Boaz, iosmusicandyou.com)
• "If you like great Arpeggiators, this is it!" (Jordan Rudess)

Design an arpeggio pattern with various knobs and buttons, then move up-and-down the matrix to set its speed, or left-and-right to set its pitch. Tilt the device to control volume and pitchbend, or shake for vibrato. Arpeggionome Pro also features a robust MIDI implementation, allowing you to control other iOS music apps, external gear, and computer software like never before**.

*An arpeggio is a musical technique where notes in a chord are played in sequence, rather than together.

** MIDI input and output is recommended for iPad 2 and later.

Supports MIDI, Ableton Link, Audiobus 3, and Inter-App Audio.

Please note, the App Preview video features Arpeggionome Pro controlling Animoog, an incredible synthesizer app created by Moog. Arpeggionome Pro does a have a built-in synthesizer, but... it doesn't sound as good that :]

Visual Multi-Band Compressor

playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

This is an AUv3 compatible visual effect plugin which is intended for use inside your favourite DAW such as Cubasis, Auria, Meteor, AUM etc. It will not function as a standalone app.

Visual Compressor is a 4 band compressor/expander which has the ability to analyse audio in real time giving an accurate and reliable spectrum representation of your signal as well as visual feedback of compression or expansion levels. It's uses range from final mastering of songs to dynamic manipulation and EQing of drum tracks.

What makes this different from a normal compressor is the ability to compress or expand frequency ranges rather than the whole mix, with up to 4 bands available. This allows you to say tighten up a wayward snare drum while adding that extra punch to the bass drum while leaving the rest of the track intact.

Each of the 4 configurable frequency bands can be modified using drag and drop operations directly on the graph making it easy to understand and quick to configure. Turn on the labelling option for colour coded details. Each band can function as an EQ allowing raising and lowering the bands gain by +/-24dB. You can assign either a compressor or expander to each of the bands.

The compressor allows you to compress excessively loud sounds that exceed a specified threshold. Each band has configurable attack, release and ratio settings.

The expander can be used to expand sound exceeding the threshold while compressing anything below it. This makes it useful for adding dynamics or even for noise reduction of a specific band.

Each band has mute and solo buttons so you can audition what is coming through a certain band, great for use during band frequency setup. There is also a bypass option which removes a band from use and reduces CPU load.

You can load and save custom presets as well as copy and paste settngs between instances. This is great if you need to setup multiple instances with the same settings.

One of the cool features is the ability to save up to 3 mixes and switch between them for comparision. These mixes are actually saved as part of custom presets and as the saved state in your DAW.

This is the third of three products which will make up part of the 'visual' range of effects.

Main Features:

○ 4 distinct frequency bands.
○ Assignable Compressor or Expander.
○ +/-24dB gain per band.
○ Assignable Q to control precise crossovers.
○ Spectrum Analyser with 'Pre' and 'Post' monitoring.
○ Vertical shift and scale options for the spectrum.
○ Mute and Solo buttons for each band.
○ Save & Compare up to 3 separate mixes.
○ Bypass option to remove a band and reduce CPU load.
○ Create and save custom presets.
○ Copy / Paste presets between instances.
○ Compressor / Limiter with Auto Makup Gain.
○ Twin VU meters with RMS/Peak display as well as peak and gate lights per band.
○ Brick wall limiter.
○ Quick Reset options for each section of the effect.

TESTIMONIALS

"The update to version 2.0 just made this an almost new app in terms of functionality. Everything from the pad layouts, scales, new graphics to the sounds work together really well. Also, the new sounds are really, really good (great strings and choir samples). IMHO that this app just quadrupled in value with this free update." - Music-311

"Thanks for such an awesome app, I love that it lets you intuitively visualize and experiment with a "Tonnetz" layout, and better understand Neo-Riemannian theory - as such, Navichord is the perfect gateway from abstract, heady harmony concepts to immediate and practical music being played- a priceless possibility! And it looks beautiful and the tones are great, to boot" - RepentHarlequin73

"This is really a nice, simple, clean app. I love the way you laid out the UI and I especially like that single notes can be tapped first and then dragged seamlessly between notes to produce the chord, then back to another single note if desired. For what it's worth, here are five stars... ***** This app will replace several other more expensive "chord progression lab" apps that I own because I think it's UI design is excellent and perfect for my needs." - ZenLizard

"Find using the harmonic grid more intuitive than a piano keyboard, being able to press in the middle of three circles to get major and minor chords is genius. Experimenting with chord patterns and having the chord name at the top and the root and other keys displayed on the keyboard, is helping me get my head around more complex chords." - mister-rz

"Downloaded the app when I read about it on dischord. I'm really happy...looks like a great app to explore chord variations." - Jonathan Paran Aran

"Read about it on Synthtopia. Bought it just now, love it already. Thanks Denis!" - Dominik Assig

"Excelente app para aprender acordes y armonia." - R3dhood

"It can definitely be a source of inspiration." - Luca

"...it helps (when it comes to chord progressions). It is so simple & that is its value." - Michael L

"I use and love Navichord!" - Ep Lipschitz
