Thoughts on Polywave

I’ve been playing with Polywave for a little while now and I quite like it. It is no secret that I like noise making apps, and this is a nice noise maker, there’s no doubt about it. You can make some interesting sounds with this app and if you understand what an oscilator, filter, envelop and LFO are then there is no learning curve whatsoever to get going with it.

If noise makers are your thing you should take a look. Here’s a brief reminder of the specs.

Polywave features at a glance:

  • 4 Octave touchpad
  • pitch glide
  • Polyphonic Graphic Oscillator
  • Pitch modulation
  • Oscillator Presets – Sine, Triangle, Saw, Square, blank
  • Filter
  • Filter modulation
  • Filter Presets – Low pass, High pass, Band pass
  • Graphic Envelope
  • Envelope Sustain position
  • Envelope Presets – ASDR Positive, EXP Positive, ASDR Negative, EXP Negative, blank
  • Graphic LFO
  • LFO rate
  • LFO Presets – Sine, Ramp Up, Ramp Down, Square, blank

vKip for iPad

I don’t know very much about Symbolic Sound’s Kyma X Paca or Pacarana sound design systems, but I thought I’d post this on the offchance that someone is using them and therefore this app might be useful.

Control Symbolic Sound’s Kyma X Paca or Pacarana sound design system using your iPad!. Conveniently arranged on one screen, vKiP’s controls are optimized in size and layout for the iPad Multi-Touch screen. Adjust faders and rotaries, browse and load in Kyma sound snapshots, plus more! Untether yourself from the computer mouse and screen.

vKiP adjusts for either portrait or landscape orientation, giving you the flexibility to choose your preferred usage mode.

vKiP is Harmony Systems’ latest in its Delora Software family of “v” applications that expand the controller options for Kyma. It uses WiFi and “Midi over OSC” to communicate with Kyma: no other computer “agent” programs, drivers, or utilities are needed. vKiP can be used with any computer and OS supported by Kyma.
