THE STORY
For Ninja Tune co-founders Coldcut, known for their innovations in DJing, Remixing, Production and Live Performance, Jamm Pro has been 25 years in the making. Coldcut have been honing it in their live show and recently creating music with it.

Designed by Coldcut’s Matt Black with the aim of creating their ultimate electronic music instrument. As users experiment and develop ideas, they can save them as their own patches, which can be used to quickly build up stages of a song, structure a live performance, or used as a sketchpad.

The app features exceptional and extensive modulation and patching capabilities, the likes of which have never been seen in a sample app before. Equipped with four main channels, each with nine sequencers — six modulation sequencers, a slice sequencer, a pitch/reverse/drill sequencer and a gate sequencer — and up to 64 patches per set, Jamm Pro allows for a possible 2,304 sequencers per Sound Set in the app.

As well as production, Jamm Pro has been designed as an instrument for playing live sound, drawing on hiphop DJing and timing. With expressive touch control, the app facilitates direct engagement of hand-eye-ear coordination through ‘tip control’. This innovative feature tracks small finger movements that can be used to sensitively control various effects.

And yes Ableton Link is included!

JAX Convolutor PRO (AU)

playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

Remarks: This is an Audio Unit, but you have to open the distribution app ones at least to install the included IR file library.

Convolution is a highly complex signal processing approach, that needs some certain computation power. The recorded impulse response of a real world environment is used to render a reverberation effect onto any audio material, so that it sounds like the source was played in that original room or at that location. Some further adjustments and manipulations can be applied to refine these results.

Now this all may sound somewhat naive at first listen but the entire calculation is extremely complex math, so that the very first processors and computers were able to perform this in realtime rather around the end of the last millennium.

Basically, the impulse responses and the audio stream are completely analyzed with FFT algorithms and then the entire analysis data will be cross-modulated into the realtime audio stream by performing a repeated highly performance intensive re-synthesis and accumulation processing for each analysis block of the impulse response.

Therefore it is a crucial performance factor that you use JAX Convolutor with larger processing buffer sizes (1024) samples. Shorter buffers may raise the CPU hit exorbitantly for several reasons.


The manual is embedded into the main app.

JAF Collection

playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

The JAF Collection is an exciting set of digital modeled classic analog synthesizer filters (VCFs) for iOS. The emphasis of this collection of audio effects is professional analog sounding and optimized behavior with touchscreen usage, features that not many currently available apps and plugins do really offer.

The collection is exclusively available for the mobile iOS (version 11 and higher). The apps and the included Audio Units are “universal”, so they work on iPhones and iPads the same way and also have basically the same appearance and functionality.

Note: These apps are so-called “Audio Units” (aka plugins), which usually require hosting audio applications to operate. Although, they come with their own basic host applications, which include for instance IAA (inter-app-audio) connectivity, like mic input and also have inbuilt MIDI support, to use the filters out of the box, like external hardware devices, without requiring another host application.

The JAF Collection Filters can also act as a synthesizer module due to the fact, that there is an unison oscillator section (VCOs) built in for testing and for live performances. The analog modeled synthesizer has no advanced controls or modulators. It just runs the oscillators continuously and can be controlled by external MIDI messages to snap to MIDI pitches or being automated with the volume controller. The complete MIDI assignment is documented in the MIDI Implementation Chart for the JAF Collection.

JAX Unisonic (Audio Unit)

playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

JAX Unisonic is a special Audio Unit, able to produce up to 8 additional voices from any audio input (also polyphonic audio) by multiplying and shifting it in pitch and other parameters. Audio Units require a host application for operation.

The concept of JAX Unisonic is loosely derived from ‘Unison’ which was adopted from the ancient analog synthesizer world, where manufacturers and sound designers intended to fatten the sound by multiplying and stacking available voices together. Also digital synthesizers did adopt this technique to fatten sound sources.
Due to the instability of analog oscillators and components and some wilful detuning, an interesting sonic effect is achieved, giving the produced tones significantly more presence and life. Unison voices are still excessively used in modern music styles today. (In classical music compositions ‘unisono’ basically means a performance, where multiple instruments or voices play the same parts in an ensemble fashion.)

Technical

Now JAX Unisonic can simulate this sonic effect with any audio source by incorporating a bank of independent time domain pitch shifters, that are optimized to detune and spread artificially multiplied voices in panorama. It can be understood as a kind of super chorus generator or an ensemble like effect with variable, realtime controlled intensity and pitch relation. But it is clearly something more.

With JAX Unisonic you can create up to 8 additional voices, that will be passed thru a chain of pitching and positioning, creating massively fattened sounds with any kind of voice input. Additionally you may transpose each voice individually per semitone to max. +/- 1 octave, something that cannot be achieved with usual choruses, unison or ensemble effects and moves the results slightly in the direction of the category “harmonizer” effects. Although the harmonic results can be programmed (automated) freely and are not auto generated in any way, as on some available other harmonizers.

The used pitch shifters in our JAX Unisonic are NOT based on the phase vocoder paradigm (FFT) and do not introduce the static latencies, which are unavoidable by the latter. A time domain pitch shifter in contradiction, uses very small delay buffers, where the latency is dynamically adjusted (dependent on the used pitch shifting amount) and much smaller and nearly latency-free. Such pitch shifters are better situated for live usage therefore. Although, such pitch shifters sound slightly more raw and tend to produce disharmonic overtones with more extreme values.

Usage

JAX Unisonic may be used as a massive unison effect generator or more decently for creating various, more subtile effects for improving sonic qualities of parts in a composition. For instance controlled voice detuning, manual pitch correction, doubling of vocals or solo instruments or just to give some boring voices more interest and static sound some special movement. It is even usable with drums, adding subtile or even massive new frequency components.

MIDI SWEET: Module Unit (AU)

playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

This is the first multi timbre sound module with GM compatibility in Audio Unit format.

MIDI SWEET: MIDI Module Unit is a 16 x multi timbre Sound Module (playing on max. 16 MIDI channels) in Audio Unit format, that basically implements the General MIDI Standard. 

It is basically an emulation of such devices like the ROLAND SCC-1 Sound card or the EMU-8000 sound chip and others.

With Module Unit you can play up to a maximum of 1024 dynamically allocated voices of an integrated sample-based wavetable synthesizer at ones. These voices are mapped to the 16 internal MIDI and audio channels and this mapping is also done dynamically while playing with the device in realtime. 

There are 2 integrated send effects, a reverb and a chorus too (internal send busses) which can be mixed to the internal audio channels, usually controlled by MIDI controllers.

MIDI Module Unit can be remoted with most important MIDI controllers, defined in the GM standard, so that MIDI files can be played directly thru its engine. An example of such controllers are Gain (007) and Pan (010) or Expression (011).

Everything in MIDI Module Unit will be automated with MIDI controllers, rather than Audio Unit parameter automation. It basically behaves like a classic external Sound Module.

The user interface implements a virtual mixer console environment, where important controllers can be edited per touch screen and automated MIDI action (i.e. playing MIDI files thru it) can be watched.

The mixer environment will generate MIDI data, similar of that, what the mixer in our MIDI Player Module is generating. Such controllers can be sent to external connected devices too.

A manual is included with the distribution app. The main app also includes a set of standard MIDI files and allows to select your own MIDI files for playing thru the module engine.
