Ruismaker FM arrives so you can design synth percussion to your heart’s content

Bram Bos, the makers of Ruismaker have now brought us Ruismaker FM. A whole new app designed for people who want to design their own percussion sounds from scratch.

Ruismaker FM’s flexible synthesis engine lets you create anything from snaredrums, kickdrums and spacy toms to weird and unconventional percussive sounds and effects.

Works conveniently inside your sequencer and Audio Unit Instrument hosts so you can focus on making electronic music without app switching and screen juggling like before.

*IMPORTANT* Audio Units are plug-ins that need a compatible host app to work. Ruismaker FM has been tested to work beautifully with Steinberg Cubasis, Apple Garageband, Modstep and AUM.

  • Audio Unit Instrument (AUv3): making music on iOS doesn’t get more convenient
  • Use Ruismaker FM’s flexible FM synth engine to create thousands of sounds
  • Comes with loads of factory preset sounds as examples
  • Does not use any samples; all sounds are synthesized in realtime, on the fly
  • Light on the CPU, so you can run lots of instances simultaneously
  • Has an extra compact 4″ UI mode; especially for iPhone SE and iPhone 5S
  • Fully automatable parameters (requires host support)
  • Fully MIDI controllable using MIDI CC
  • Download the advanced guide on ruismaker.com for more details about parameter automation, available instruments and MIDI implementation

iOS Audio Units are supported on iPads (iPad 4, iPad Mini 2 and up) and iPhones (iPhone 5S and up) with iOS 9 and higher.

Ruismaker FM costs $4.99 on the app store now:

Everest : Audio Looper 1.2 arrives

Everest : Audio Looper is a nice app and a good looper too. Here’s what’s new in the latest version of the app:

  • Added new optional controls:
    • A musical pitch shifting Keyboard Control: Change the speed and pitch of any loop in real time in semi-tone steps. Two octave keyboard will appear underneath each loop, if there is enough vertical space.
    • Touch-able Loop History: Instantaneously jump to any Recording or Edit in any loop’s edit/undo history. Supports all 16 undo levels. NOTE: This new control also requires enough vertical space on your device.
  • Added customizable MIDI settings: Generate, edit and automatically load a custom JSON file with all current MIDI controls re-mapped to your liking. Easily restore original settings as well via a new MIDI Settings sub-menu. NOTE: To access the JSON file connect your device to iTunes and access Everest’s documents. Now MIDI NoteOn and MIDI Control Change (cc) messages can be assigned to any existing MIDI control.
  • Various Fixes:
    • Updated to latest Audiobus API.
    • Fixed random issue with incompatibility between Multi-Route hardware mode and IAA/Audiobus.
