TubeSynth (universal) arrives

Now this looks really interesting. A new synth app has just arrived, called TubeSynth, and it comes with a warning too! I’m very keen to give this a try too.

New concept of electric music instrument/sequencer. A tube synth consists of several key wave forms which are smoothly connected. Its shape is formed by key waves which are converted in polar-coordinates.

  • adjustable Interval duration of each key wave.
  • adjustable pitch and amplitude at each key wave.
  • Variety of interpolation methods to form waves.
  • Adding harmonics and subharmonics with weight.
  • Adding reverb.

Some waveform with rapid changes in sound pressure could be damageing to your ears at high amplitudes or for long periods. Please avoid using earphones or headphones when editing waveforms.

TubeSynth costs $2.99 on the app store and is universal:

AudioCopy 3 brings with it a new content store from Retronyms where you can buy loop and sample packs.

It makes a lot of sense if you think about it really. I’m almost surprised that they didn’t do it sooner.

A new feature added to Remote Recorder is the ability to stream audio over WiFi; there as a (free) iOS app that will receive the audio — this is Apollo Sound Injector.
