I’ve been playing with this app for a little while now. It’s a little like RJDJ and some of the other augmented apps I’ve posted on before, so if you like that kind of application on your iPhone it might be something you’d like to try.
Personally I like this kind of application, and I like this one as it adopts a scene type approach which gives a variety of different audio approaches.
It’s obvious that a lot of work has gone into the design of each scene. I think it’s something that I will be using for a long while to come.
Here’s the app’s description:
Lis10er (Listener) 1.0 is a binaural audio augmented reality iPhone application that creates an “augmented soundspace”, warping and mixing the sounds from the microphone with prerecorded imagined sounds. Lis10er is designed by Matteo Milani and Federico Placidi (aka U.S.O. Project) in collaboration with Tue Haste Andersen. Lis10er is an application that places the emphasis on the surfaces of the world in which we live. It has been developed keeping in mind the issue of “environmental lis10ing” in everyday activities, like traveling, walking, reading. Mixing “live” sounds and their aural context with designed sounds creates a new “virtual Place” where the lis10er can immerse himself and develop an active aural consciousness in order to better understand the physical and social context which describe and define our everyday life. The app interconnects places, everyday situations and sonic awareness. Lis10er promotes a creative mode of lis10ing.
Here are the full details of the new synth from Yonac:
Magellan is the bold new professional analog modeling synthesizer for the iPad. Not content with just one synth, we gave Magellan TWO independent polyphonic synth engines. Individually or together, they deliver a new powerful warmth to the sound of iOS music.
Complete with a full effects rack, a total of six oscillators, dual filters per engine, multiple unison stages, extensive modulation matrix, dedicated arpeggiators, powerful MIDI capabilities, and a polyphonic step-sequencer – the aural possibilities with Magellan are infinite!
This is great news from the maker of Caustic for Android. Not only could this modular be great addition into your Caustic 2 rack for Android, but as a stand alone iPad app it could be good too. Certainly one to watch.
