Shoom Synthesizer has arrived

I do like it when the wait isn’t too long for a new app, and we haven’t had to wait too long for Shoom. It’s here on the app store!

So you might remember the sneak peak videos …

Now you can get the full app details, here they are …

Shoom is an expressive XY pad synthesizer. Or, more precisely, three identical synthesizers in one app. It is capable of playing any pitch in the audible range and doesn’t necessarily limit you to a particular scale. Nevertheless, if you do want to use scales, Shoom can deliver anything from common 12-tone equal tempered to xenharmonic and microtonal.


  • Three independent synthesizers
  • 20–20,000 Hz pitch range
  • Slide freely or snap notes to scale with adjustable glide rate
  • Set notes to infinite hold using a dedicated toggle
  • Microtonal and non-octave repeating scales support
  • MIDI CC control and clock sync (MIDI note input coming in a later update)
  • Inter-App Audio, Audiobus 2 support
  • 60+ bundled presets
  • Import and export of presets and CC maps

Synthesizer engine features:

  • Adjustable polyphony, up to 30 voices
  • Two oscillators with 4 waveforms and PWM, and one noise generator
  • Oscillator FM cross-modulation
  • 4 pole (24 dB/octave) resonant low pass filter with overdrive and pitch tracking
  • 2 variable slope ADSR envelopes for amplitude and filter cutoff
  • 2 LFOs with 9 waveforms, up to 3 out of 12 simultaneously assignable parameters, trigger and global running modes, fade-in and phase controls
  • Y axis position as modulation source with up to 3 of 15 simultaneously assignable parameters
  • Note pan randomizer
  • Built-in stereo delay and reverb effects

Shoom is on the app store and costs $5.99 (£4.49):

A small reminder about the RandomBus

This is just another little reminder about about RandomBus, my twitterBot that randomly tweets set ups for Audiobus. You can find it on twitter at @RandomBus!

For a little more information you can check out the page dedicated to it above, or just follow it on twitter and find new ways to use AB.

A tiny reminder to check out the School of Noise page

I have posted about the School of Noise a number of time, but it’s a pretty amazing thing to be a part of so I’m shouting about it a bit. You should check out the page and their site too, especially if you’re involved in music education in which case feel free to get in touch if you’d like to know more about it.
