Sugar Bytes brings Unique for iPad and iPhone

Sugar Bytes have brought us some excellent iOS apps and this looks like a great addition to their portfolio. Here’s what they say about Unique, which comes in both iPhone and iPad flavours:

“Unique sounds like syrup with dirt kicked into it. If Bootsy Collins, Roger Troutman and Daft Punk would have met up in Studio 54 to create a soft-synth, for sure something like Unique would have come out of it…” Sound & Recording Mag

Unique was made for fun and vibes: Analogue sound, intense modulation and a killer set of features, delivering an amazing sonic spectrum that’s full of character: Classy sounds, powerful, warm… sometimes gritty.

Each of the 2 oscillators offers a selection of 5 waveforms: sawtooth and pulse waves are here, along with noise, triple saw and triple FM waves. There’s also an additional sub-oscillator strapped into the master section for added oomph.

The internal controllers will bring in the dynamics: an LFO and an envelope, there’s a recordable XY field & a sequencer. Use these to modulate any knob – a simple long tap will do.

The sound springs to life when it hits the filter section. Needless to say, analogue high-pass, low-pass and band-pass varieties are in place, along with a comb filter.

Standards aside, the actual intention behind this project, the Vowel Filter, also became its outstanding feature: string together two or four vowel formants and play them back in a multitude of ways.

Once you’ve built your sound, there’s tons of sound polish in two chained multi-effect units.

Features

  • Sawtooth, Triple Saw, Pulse, Triple FM, Noise with tonal Filter, Sub Sine
  • 5 Filters with 5 Modulators each
  • Duophone Arpeggiator
  • Vowel Filter
  • Two Effect Sections
  • Ableton Link Kit & AudioBus
  • MIDI Learn & Host Automation
  • 300 groovy presets by various artists
