Anaphobia Destro 1.0 arrives!

Good things come …

Destro is another monophonic virtual analog synthesizer and goes on where AnaMini ends. Once again a monophonic virtual analog synth, Destro features one VCO, two LFOs, a noise generator, a VCF and a VCA. On top of the synthesizer, Destro also provides a programmable step sequencer so you can create your own patterns and songs. Furthermore, Destro adds a noise generator and foldback distortion unit, as well as a 3-part drum synthesizer module!

Features (Synthesizer)

  • One main oscillator (VCO) with selectable wave type (saw, square, noise and sine) and scalable within the range of -1 and +1 octaves.
  • Two low frequency oscillators (LFO) with selectable wave type (saw, square, noise and sine) and selectable frequency/rate and depth. LFO1 modulates VCO1 frequency while LFO2 modulates VCF cutoff frequency. LFO’s synchronise to MIDI/sequencer tempo at 1/32, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 4, 8 or 16 notes.
  • One VCA with fully customizable ADSR(A) envelope.

Artiphon Instrument One at Summer NAMM 2013

I’m very taken with the Artiphon product, it does look beautiful. It keeps tempting me …

Audiobus announces 235 apps on the bus, but …

It’s a big number, it’s a great achievement, but I still have some questions …

  1. What’s next for Audiobus? I keep mentioning routes and MIDI etc, but there’s no news as yet.
  2. Does the sheer number of apps using the bus now make it more difficult to update Audiobus itself, given that they’d all need to move to a new version of the SDK to take advantage of the features?
  3. And the biggest question of all, what’s happening with inter-app audio?

I’d like to know more. I’d like to know what to expect.

How about you?

Guitarism controlling Nave & Thor – Improv Jam


In this quick video I use Guitarism to have a little improv jam with Nave and Thor at the Same time. I used one of Thor’s main presets and for Nave I made my own custom guitar patch. This is the first time I have attempted to use the Chord pads to do a “solo” but I think it worked out nicely. Make sure you pick up Guitarism from the appstore if you don’t have it and show me what you come up with!
