Yep, Mikme has returned again this time to Indiegogo, with a new campaign, and in the first 15 hours they’ve already exceeded 200% of their target! That’s truly amazing! It just goes to show that you can revisit a crowdfunding campaign and make it work. I think that’s an important lesson to learn here.
Anyway, it’s really worth checking out Mikme and you can find the campaign right here.
apeSoft brings us a new app alongside their already great selections of effects and synths. So here’s apeDelay, and here’s what to expect …
apeDelay – Implements up to 2048 Stereo Spectral Delay lines with Feedback. The algorithm is based on the STFT (i.e. Short Time Fourier Transform) analysis/re-synthesis. The audio signal is converted in abstract ‘Frequency Domain’, where is manipulated and transformed back again in ‘Time Domain’. You can draw three shapes for the Times, Feedbacks and Panning. This is achieved from the multi sliders, who provide a great tool to manage the huge numbers of parameters. You can also benefit of more advanced spectral manipulations like the Spectral Blur, Granulate, Bins Decimator and Freeze.
- Audiobus and Inter-App Audio support (sender and FX)
- Built In Stereo Sampler with varispeed and scrubbing
- Control Manager LFO for all the Parameters
- Midibus, Virtual Midi and Network: 14 bit NRPN controllers
- File Manager, sharing common audio files via iTunes, Dropbox and AudioCopy
- Snapshots Presets Morphing Pad
- Post Fx: Stereo Delay, Amazing ClassicVerb Low/Hi Shelving and Dynamic Processor
apeDelay costs $5.99 on the app store.
Another simple and cheap effect app from this project. Here’s what’s to expect from the app …
Buttercup Bitcrush is a general purpose bit-crusher, sample-rate reduction & noise effect.
Built upon the tenet of simplicity, the flora project presents great sounding, lightweight audio effects using Inter-App Audio and Audiobus technologies to allow you to get the sound you want, without sacrificing processing power.
More information about the flora project can be found at http://timothy-j.com/flora
NB: Buttercup Bitcrush requires either Audiobus or Inter-App Audio capable applications in order to operate. See http://audiob.us for more information.

“TC-Performer is a multi-touch synthesizer for iPhone and iPad. Choose from over 150 available patches and explore each instrument.
Audiobus compatible and with an available key / tuning setting, TC-Performer can join into any sonic landscape.”
Nice and simple and very handy comparison between the two apps. I thought it might be useful if you hadn’t seen TC-Performer as yet.
