Audio Damage brings us Eos 2

Audio Damage have been busy. What with Rough Rider 2 and Grind Distortion. Now Eos 2 arrives and is well worth checking out. Here are the details:

A long-time studio standard, now finally available for iOS! This is a direct 1:1 port of Audio Damage’s Eos 2 desktop plug-in, identical in every way to the Eos you know and love. This download includes an AUv3 App Extension for use in AUv3-savvy hosts like AUM, AudioBus, GarageBand, Cubasis, and Auria Pro. Also included is a stand-alone application with Inter-App Audio.

Eos 2 consists of four high-quality custom-designed reverb algorithms, made with the modern production environment in mind. Three different plate simulators and our own Superhall algorithm give you a broad palette of reverb, and the easy-to-understand interface makes adjusting the algorithms to suit your track incredibly simple.

Want a traditional dark plate reverb? Eos 2 can do that. How about a short, dense room sound for your drum buss? Not a problem. But where Eos 2 really comes in to its own is when you drop Superhall on your piano or synthesizer tracks. The incredibly long modulated hall sounds of Eno-style ambience are where Eos 2 thrives, something that is not possible with convolution ‘verbs.

Features

  • Four reverb algorithms designed for Audio Damage by ValhallaDSP, including three separate plate algorithms and our own unique SuperHall, a rich, densely modulated, extra-long hall algorithm designed for ambient and synthesizer music.
  • Full control over the reverb early reflections and tail, with modulation and equalization control, to sculpt the density and tonal characteristics to your needs.
  • All presets from the desktop version included, and you can even share presets among all versions of Eos 2 using the copy/paste mechanism.
  • AUv3 and IAA standard.
  • Note that Eos 2 is a dense, heavily modulated algorithmic reverb, and as such may be somewhat heavy on the CPU, especially on older devices. For best results, use a single instance as a send.

Eos 2 costs $5.99 on the app store now:

Audio Damage brings Grind Distortion to iOS

More goodness from Audio Damage. Grind comes to iOS. Here are the details:

A true powerhouse of audio warfare, Grind puts the “damage” in Audio Damage. From subtle tube-style saturation to full-on mangled wavetable distortion, Grind is a Swiss Army Knife of sound design. This effect consists of three main blocks: wavetable lookup, in to algorithmic saturation/distortion/, and finally to a multi-mode filter with eleven different topologies, from your favorite four-pole lowpass ladder filter, to the 18dB screaming acid, to more subtle toolbox filters like notch. Driving it all is a tempo-synced LFO for rhythmic filtering and grinding.

Grind is code-identical to our VST/AU/AAX version, and can even load its presets. Take your favorite destruction plug on the road with you in this AudioUnits v3 version. Also includes a stand-alone app.

FEATURES

  • Input gain and gate
  • Wavetable lookup distortion module with LFO modulation over 15 wavetables, and control over window size and phase. This replaces the input sample with one chosen from the selected wavetable based on input level.
  • Algorithmic distortion module. Apply one of eleven different distortion/saturation algorithms to the signal, for everything from subtle tube-style harmonic saturation to full sine driver craziness.
  • Multi-mode filter with eleven different topologies, from popular vintage synth filters to studio carving tools. The filter frequency is an LFO modulation target, making this worth the price of admission for the filter alone.
  • Tempo-synced LFO. In an AUv3 host, Grind’s LFO automatically syncs to your host, and can provide rhythmic interest to virtually any track. Mod the filter, for timbral interest, or mod the wavetable, for the full Grind destructo-effect!
  • A mix control rounds out this easy-to-use, yet deceptively intense effect. Add a little or add it all, Grind is a multi-effect that will bring any sound to life.

Grind costs $4.99 on the app store now:

Audio Damage brings us Rough Rider 2

With over half a million downloads, the free Rough Rider compressor from Audio Damage is one of the most popular plugin effects on the planet. Now available for the first time on iOS, Rough Rider 2 brings the exact same plugin to your iPad, as a stand-alone application (with Inter-App Audio) and as an AUv3 for use with hosts that support it, like GarageBand, Cubasis, and Audiobus 3.

Rough Rider 2 for iOS is free on the app store now:

More FX for your device … Shaper : smart audio destroyer arrived

A first app from K-Devices, and, although I can’t claim to have tried it as yet it looks impressive from the description. Read on ….

Shaper is now available at just €3.49/$2.99 (instead of €6.99/$5.99). The offer is valid until June 24th.

Shaper is a multi-fx processor that allows you to redefine or totally destroy any kind of source.

Shaper is perfect in any iOS music workflow:

  • as stand alone app to process your outboard equipment
  • as inter-app audio in Aubiobus or other compatible daw apps as AUM, Modstep, GarageBand, and so on
  • moreover, Shaper is also an awesome Audio Unit Extension!!

Its clear, clean and minimal user interface lets you fall in love so fast with its potential, that after just few minutes of use you’ll feel like it always been one of your favorite music production tools.
Its noise is your noise.

All you need to add a personal touch to your sounds is here. Emphasize your basslines working with waveshaper’s sections blend and color, or increasing the clip’s value (this works great also on drums and acoustic percussive sounds). Blow digital coldness to your synths going wild with S&M and Bits&Samps functions, or increasing wrap or fold values . Add unpredictable dynamic glitches thanks the exclusive gate.

HOW IT WORKS

Shaper is composed by several modules, that you can rearrange as you want:

  • a glitch gate
  • a waveshaper section with 5 brand new inspiring functions: Muffin, Multistress, Cracker, S&M, Bits&Samps
  • a transform section with wave-clipper, wave-wrapper, and wave-folder
  • a resonator/short delay, that can act as a comb filter too

You choose how to feed it and how to mix it with a gain and a dry/wet section. Two oscilloscopes display audio signals before and after processing: this gives you a realtime visual feedback about how you are morphing your sound wave.

Each parameter offers a range that lets you process the signal so slightly… Or so massively! Changing the order of modules in the chain, makes of Shaper an incredibly versatile sounds processor!

WAVESHAPING FUNCTIONS
The waveshaper module applies a shaping function to incoming signal. It’s the timbral core of the audio process. Several functions are available: Muffin and Cracker applies a digital warming function with a distinction in the weight that noise takes in the wet signal. Multistress is a bit more fragments function, giving a more modulated FM-ish result. These three let user control the process via blend and color parameters. This helps you to apply a different dose of Shaper cure to your sound 😉

S&M is basically an amplitude modulation, driven by ramps; the length parameter here sets the frequency of these. This function brings a like-metal flavour… Raw digital power!

The last function Bits&Samps is a standard bit reducer.

MODULAR STRUCTURE
Shaper lets you work fast with gestures support:

  • you want to rearrange modules? Just drag them as you prefer and create different chains for different needs
  • need instant reset to default value for a parameter? Just double tap on cursor
  • fine tuning? Just tap and hold the cursor, then drag it left or right to increase the resolution of your vertical dragging

Shaper is Audiobus presets and state saving compatible. It can also store its status while working in all major host-apps sets as AUM, Modstep, GarageBand, etc. You can also save internal presets, and share them with your collaborators easily.

Shaper is currently priced at $2.99, but will go up to $6.99 after the 24th:

Resonator Audio Unit arrives

And another AU from Aleksandar Mlazev …

Resonator Audio Unit is an audio effect that creates natural sounding resonances in an acoustic body. That will add warmth and fullness to the tone of any instrument or to your record. You can control the acoustic body thickness, size and the amount of resonances.

There is also additional reverb effect so you can add reflections to the sound of the resonator. This is useful if you use the app as a standalone to get your whole sound and play on your instrument via iRig or similar adapter.

The app uses realistic and innovative algorithms created by me that you can not find in other software.

Features of the Resonator Audio Unit:

  • warm and natural sounding resonances
  • acoustic body controls for thickness and size
  • resonances amount control
  • additional reverb effect
  • Efx on/off button (available when used as a stand alone app)

Resonator Audio Unit costs $2.99 on the app store now:

Warm Distortion AU arrives

A new audio unit arrives …

Warm Distortion is real time distortion audio effect. It is a non linear distortion that works great with guitars, drums and other instruments. It clears the “hiss” sounds just like real tube amplifier. All algorithms are unique, created and designed for nice distortion effect.
The app works as an Audio Unit plugin and can also be used as stand alone real time effect via the device microphone or using iRig or similar device.

Features:

  • Unique distortion algorithms with natural tube sound
  • Gain
  • Level
  • Smoothie (hiss clearing magic slider)
  • Reverb (master reverb)

If you play acoustic instrument you can use headphones without a mic and put the phone close to your instrument so the app will work as realtime effect.

Warm Distortion costs $1.99 on the app store now:
