Sketch Synth FX universal arrives

From the makers of Orbital Guitar, Sketch Sound 3D and Sketch Synth 3D comes a new app. Here are the details:

Introductory price at $3 until MIDI support arrives. Runs on iPad 2/3, and iPhone 4/4S; we have reports of problems on iPod Touch (please do not buy on iPod yet).

Sketch Synth FX lets you draw effects onto your sounds, layer by layer using it’s XY pads. Simply work from the sample input at the left, through the effects channels and to the output at the right.

*** In this first version I have just had a report of no sound on the iPod Touch 4th Gen, things so far seem fine on iPad and iPhone, please wait for this message to go before buying on the iPod in general ***

You can record and export using Audio Copy & Paste or iTunes File Sharing. The effects you can apply include: delay, distortion, low/high pass filter, pitch, chorus. The effects can come on pretty strong and so you have a bypass control that really helps smooth chaotic effects into nicer evolving sounds.

This version comes with 3 themes / sample packs, including one sample pack from DJ Vadim.

Future updates could include additional distortion effects like Bit Crusher or perhaps MIDI, let me know how you want the product to develop for you and I can look into it.

Existing Sketch Synth 3D and Sketch Sound 3D users may wish to wait a few weeks for the latest updates to their existing software before purchasing Sketch Synth FX. My current plan is to offer a themed version of this with different samples as a bonus inside Sketch Synth / Sketch Sound 3D.

Bugs: on the iPhone 4 there is a weird issue that means you can only record from microphone whilst you have headphones on, speaker sound seems to stop after that. I haven’t yet located the source of the problem; but I intend to alter the microphone recording code in order to get input level monitoring for recording guitar etc, hopefully this fix will be with you in a few weeks. Normal recording is fine.

The app is priced at $2.99.
