A really big thank you to Alex for putting Sliver and GlitchBreaks on sale today

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, both Sliver and GlitchBreaks have been on sale today thanks to their developer, Alex Matheu celebrating Palm Sounds being 8 years old in May. Whilst GlitchBreaks has only been around for a couple of years I think it’s fair to say that’s caught a lot of people’s attention over that time. The app has grown and developed taken its place on the home screens of many users.

The same is also true of Sliver, Alex’s latest app, and one that has certainly caught my imagination. I think at the moment I’m barely scraping at its creative potential in my own music, but I can see where it can go and if Alex treats it in the same way as GlitchBreaks it’ll keep developing and getting more and more useful all the time.

If you don’t know these apps then I’d strongly suggest you take some time to try them out, and if you’re an Audiobus user with even a passing interest in granular synthesis then you need to try Sliver.

Once again, a huge thank you to Alex for today, and also for his kind words. I look forward to your apps going from strength to strength and to whatever else you dream up. Whatever it is, I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.

And then Sliver came along

And then Alex brought out his latest app Sliver, which is just great for textures and is now usable as an Audiobus effect.

You can make up your own mind, but however you look at it, it’s very kind indeed. Thank you Alex. I don’t know what to say.

Sqeech (universal) arrives

A new instrument app which looks quite different and may well be worth checking out. Here’s what the app has to say for itself …

Fingers drip music and this app is the paper. Made for musicians looking for a responsive musical instrument with a huge range of sound, Sqeech delivers perfect audio that’s both thick and nimble. It’s an essential arrow in your music quiver.

This App is a multi-touch frequency synthesizer rendering eight cd-quality bendable audio waveform channels at any range on demand. The keyboard and output range are completely customizable with three powerful modes of sound: spectrum gives you a full oscillator; chromatic mode using half steps; or choose a major key.

Designed for flow, you can join in to any live acoustic set or electronic machination instantly. Sqeech can deliver deep bass or high-end electronic rain on one fret board. This tool was made for the hand to groove.

Responds to eight simultaneous touches by the user. A vibrato is achieved with a side to side pulsing of the fingers. Each touch has a separate volume channel so you get a rich live sound. Additionally two propellor filters (Sun & Moon) give additional firefly squeeching effects with full live control over pitch and speed from a finger.

Here’s a few more features:

Key Range Bar: The range bar let’s you instantly select a pitch threshold for the fretboard. You can change as you play. A smaller range makes more room for your fingers to add vibrato to your sound.

Pitch Slider: You can bend all sounds currently playing by using the slider bar. Releasing the slider from the high right side gives you a slow dramatic pitch fall you can add expressions to as it falls automatically.

Sun Propellor: This propeller always affects your solo finger only. Raising the sun on the screen causes the propellors pitch to go higher or lower. Left-to-right affects the propellors speed in real time giving you an powerful solo button you and squeech out a melody with.

Moon Propellor: The moon affects everything the sun does not. This gives you a more rhythmic effect since it broadcasts through the remaining fingers. It’s speed and pitch are controlling similar to the sun. Double-click to turn on pitch snapping and the propellor will conform to the nearest half step. This allows you to form any triad sequence and play it with one finger setting the root note. Both propellors really open Sqeech up as an expressive electronic vocal.

Sqeech is priced at $1.99.
