Subatomic Software has announced the release of Audulus 2.1 for iPad and Mac. This update to the modular music processing app adds support for JACK on iPad, as well as five new nodes for both iPad and Mac versions.
JACK for iOS is a free app that allows JACK-compatible apps such as Audulus to be connected in any way, with the only restriction being CPU power.
“JACK is a mature, powerful inter-app audio system,” explains Audulus developer W. Taylor Holliday. “It’s great to see it ported to iOS.”
Audulus 2.1 introduces the Poly Pack, an In-App-Purchase upgrade consisting of four new nodes which facilitate stereo and quadraphonic processing of audio input. Audulus nodes can process multiple channels of audio.
“Previously, the only way to generate a polyphonic signal in Audulus was via the Keyboard node in Poly Mode,” explains Holliday. “Now, you can do polyphonic processing of audio input. You can even use the QuadToMono node to apply separate processing chains to each voice of a synth.”
“I’m not aware of another app on iOS that gives you this fine-grained control of multi-channel processing,” adds Holliday.
Version 2.1 also adds a phasor node (not to be confused with the phaser effect), which outputs a phase angle suitable for driving custom oscillators.
Audulus development is user-driven, and these new features were requested by users on the Audulus forum.
Audulus for iPad is available on the App Store for $9.99, 30% off for the remainder of June to celebrate JACK support.
Audulus for Mac is available on the Mac App Store for $29.99.
The Audulus Poly Pack In-App Purchase upgrade is priced at $4.99.
