Studio Amplify release KRFT, it’s time to rejoice

I’ve been testing this app for what seems to be an age now. It’s something I’ve been talking to the chaps at Studio Amplify for a very long time. It’s definitely something worth checking out. Here’s all the details:

KRFT is a new approach to music creation. Build beautiful interfaces from a toolset of musical cells. Make anything from a funky groove box to a full composition, and everything in-between. Open the door to new workflows and inspiration.

Moving away from the typical 80s multi-track paradigm found in most music making software, KRFT is a unique and inspiring way to create music. By combining a variety of loops, dials, effects and more, you build your own customized musical Surface. These interfaces are a collection of musical functions and ideas that can be controlled and interpreted in real time.

The nature of this workflow allows you to make expressive decisions on-the-fly and create dynamic compositions that would be difficult to achieve in typical music software.

Download it now and rev those creative engines!

MODULAR MUSIC MAKING
Don’t be confined by pre-defined interfaces, make your own rules! Want to build a song? Add loops and groups to build a structure. Need to add a layer of jam-ability? Add drum fills, live effects and filters. Now get jamming!

POWERFUL SOUND ENGINE
A highly optimised and high quality custom sound engine is at the core of KRFT. Choose from 50 Bass presets, 50 Lead presets, 14 Drum Kits & over 50 Sound Effects to make your creations. Go deeper and tweak filters, effects and more to make the sound your own.

NON-LINEAR COMPOSITION
Rather than writing a song from start to finish, KRFT lets you play and re-interpret your composition giving you the opportunity to experiment and add flair in real time. Record multiple takes and export them to your favourite audio software or upload online.

FuxEQ (universal) has arrived

For anyone interested in another AU for their iOS set up, read on …

FuxEQ is a new 7-band parametric equalizer (audio unit) plugin for your music or sound production environment. A bunch of exceptional features, some of them not found in any other EQ software makes it truly unique:

  • The (high and low) shelving bands have a unique “asymmetry” parameter which allows finer control of the frequency curve around the edge frequency. This new feature is especially powerful for balancing frequency content of complementary sounds such as bass drum/bass guitar or different vocals and harmony instruments. For example, use it to “thin out” your bass drum in the lower mids/upper bass range, making room for your bass guitar… (Please compare the respective screenshots.)
  • A special “High/Low Balance” filter band is extremely useful for quick yet subtle and gentle adaptation of the warmth or brightness of a sound. (Please compare the screenshots.) This filter allows to tune the sound very smoothly without dominant coloring.
  • Filter frequencies can be adjusted up to 20000 Hz without any compromise in quality or bandwidth. Unlike many other equalizers FuxEQ does not “squeeze” frequency curves when approaching the 20000 Hz area. (Please compare the screenshots.)
  • A fully compatible Mac OS plugin will be available soon, making your workflow seamless across both platforms by transfer of parameter settings.
  • Each filter band has its own gain compensation parameter, allowing for loudness correct A/B comparison FOR EACH BAND — without interrupting your listening experience by necessary gain adjustments.
  • The carefully designed interface is sensitive to many intuitive gestures and thus allows both easy and fine grained control even for small displays or views:
    • Grab markers to adjust frequencies and boost/cut.
    • Grab frequency curves to adjust the individual gain compensation.
    • Select or deselect filter bands by simple taps to switch between display of detailed parameters and a clear, tidy overview.
    • Use the sliders for quick coarse parameter adjustments and swipe over the values, parameter names or the sliders outside the thumb for fine tuning.
    • Double tap curves to active/deactivate the filter band.
