Zen Musical Harmonizer ZMH-1 arrived

I think I must have missed this app when it first arrived last week. But I’ve caught up with it now. Here are the details:

Zen Musical Harmonizer ZMH-1 is a vocal/instrument harmonizer app. ZMH-1 has four different ways to interact with harmony (one at a time):

  • Playable Harmonizer–Play different chord buttons (Major, Major 6, Major 7, minor, minor 6, minor 7) to transform your one note into harmony in real time.
  • Pseudo-Smart Harmonizer–Reads your monophonic input signal (guitar, voice, etc.) and generates the correct harmony notes based on the chosen key.
  • Shifter–Shift your signal with a choice of intervals.
  • Octave–Makes your signal sound huge with up-to-five octaves per single note played or sung.
  • ZMH-1 is ready to be used in the studio and on stage. Use it with “real” music gear or alongside your other iOS music creation apps.

It supports:

  • Audiobus (Third-Party App)
  • Inter-App Audio

Make your harmony a Zen experience.

Requires headphones. Use either a microphone or instrument adapter. Audio will stop when screen locks. Go to Settings–>General–>Auto-Lock and choose Never for uninterrupted audio.

Zen Musical Harmonizer ZMH-1 is at an introductory Sale Price of $1.99 (33% Off Regular Price $2.99)

Video: Shoom Factory Presets iPad Synthesizer Demo

Video description:

“Yuri Turov has created an iPad synthesizer app that takes touch to another level of musical interaction. Shoom is a three part synthesizer with an X/Y approach for playing notes and modulating the sounds. Each of the three synth parts has their own set of two oscillators, a noise generator, an amplitude envelope, a filter, a filter envelope, LFO modulation parameters, and two effects (reverb/delay). These parameters can be controlled via midi

The following video is a quick preview of the factory presets that come with Shoom. There are four banks of presets bundled with Shoom including the factory set you hear in this video.
