E Theremin – Electro Theremin arrives for iPhone

Of course you want another theremin app on your iPhone right? Right! And this one’s free. Here are the details …

Free for a limited introductory period.

Vintage Electro–Theremin, Onassis Martino style synth.

This app captures the magic of early classic slider controlled synthesisers such as the Ondes-Martenot (1928) Trautonium (1929) and Tannerin/electro-theremin (1950s)

The E Theremin has three oscillators that generate a rich fat analogue tone, with a choice of 4 waveforms (saw, square, triangle and sine) octave shift and amp control. The E Theremin can achieve portamento, vibrato and quarter-tones with precise control. 4 presets allow you to store your sounds and jump quickly between them during performance.

– Ideal for professionals looking for an alternative to the keyboard controlled synth.
– Great for anyone interested in synthesizers, particularly early analogue.

In 1928 Maurice Martenot created one of the first electronic musical instruments, entitled; the Ondes-Martenot, the prerunner to the theremin, similar in sound but with a very different type of user interaction, an inspiring slider on a cord was used. Later in the 1950s Paul Tanner invented the Tannerin a.k.a. Electro Theremin. The Tannerin used the same slider controls as the Ondes-Martenot to control pitch. The Tannerin went on to play a large role in records such as The Beach Boys “Good Vibrations”.

Summarized Features

  • Three oscillators (osc2 unison)
  • 4 waveforms
  • 3 octave slide control
  • Fat analogue sound
  • Jump between 4 user presets
  • Classic slider pitch control
  • Retina GUI

Grab it before it goes up to regular price!

PPG WaveMapper Announced

Wolfgang’s at it again! Look what’s he’s been up to …

PPG WaveMapper is the second next-generation iOS based synth from Wolfgang Palm, who in 2012 released the PPG WaveGenerator to critical acclaim from both press and public.

In final development the PPG WaveMapper offers iPad users a second synthesiser to compliment the already loved PPG WaveGenerator from Wolfgang Palm. PPG WaveMapper allows the user the opportunity to create limitless sounds from this unique and powerful new technology.

PPG WaveMapper features the Sound Map, which maps the various sounds in a way to easily access and experiment with them, more importantly the PPG WaveMapper features a new synthesis system which maps the waveforms of a sound into a new kind of wavetable which preserves the sound characteristics better than classic Wavetable synthesis and at the same time allows for the manipulations which make WT synthesis so unique.

The Mapping window is the visualisation of a pool of programs on which “modules” float. Those modules represent certain parameters of the synthesiser engine and each module can be placed on one of 32 programs. The moment an item is placed on map then the parameters of that module will take on the settings of those parameters in the underlying program on the Mapping window.

People who do not posses synth-programming skills can use this mapping technology as a starting point to create complex sounds. For example a user can drag a string sound source onto a drum envelope, or a guitar sound onto a string envelope – the concept is simple, yet incredibly powerful.

Power users can delve deep into the back end of any sound using a full set of professional features;

  • New Sound map concept – create new sounds playful and experimental
  • 3 types of synthesis – the optimal type for kind of each sounds
  • Classic wavetables – for the typical PPG sounds
  • Time compressed samples – more authentic sounds, allowing analysis of
  • user samples
  • Pure samples – classic sample playback
  • Analyzer – convert your own samples into the new format or into
  • wavetables
  • 3 oscillators capable for totally independent sound sources
  • 90 sound resources – a huge sound palette, from real instruments to
  • abstract wavetables
  • 4 parameter editor pages – comfortable and detailed access to all the
  • parameters
  • 3 Noise generators, for audio and modulations
  • Classic 24 dB Lowpass Filter, combined with an overdrive simulation.
  • Dual amplifier, for versatile control of 2 audio signals as well as panning.
  • 13 Envelopes, for independent control of pitch, waveform, filter and noise
  • gain and panning
  • 4 LFOs – with 5 waveforms
  • Delay/Reverb effect
  • Flexible Step Sequencer / Arpeggiator combination
  • Schematic touch keyboard – Build your own keyboard, with the keys you prefer for your music.
  • Powerful sound browser – sorting by category, bank management
  • Virtual and Hard-MIDI in/out – sending/receiving keys and controllers.

About WaveMapping
Wavemapping uses visual cues to enable sound design. This may not sound too revolutionary, however it is a completely different way of programming sounds: you do not start with a lot of detailed setting, but with a combined set of parameters which you can select with the touch and swipe of a finger. And the combination of those parameters belonging to a Module make sense of course, it gives the user (being experienced or not) a very fast way for creating unique sounds.

New Analysis/synthesis system:
WaveMapper uses a new the synthesis system, which can be seen as a bridge between wavetables and samples. In wavetable systems you have great flexibility in controlling the sound, but sound material is limited to harmonic, noise-free waveforms. On the other hand there are samplers, which have very high sound quality, but very limited editing features. In WaveMapper there is a new type, which we call “time corrected sample” (TCS). This can reproduce a much wider palette of sounds then classic wavetables, but still allows for a total control of the access via an envelope or LFOs.

WaveMapper is a powerful new synth for professional iOS musicians and is the ideal partner app for those who already own the PPG WaveGenerator.

Release date estimated February 2013

Price $19.99

Using (a) Washboard as a MIDI controller …

I always like to find unusual apps or apps that do something a bit different, so with that in mind I found the Washboard. It perhaps isn’t obvious that you might want to use a Washboard as a MIDI controller, but I think it might just have some merit.
