Holderness Media brings us Johnny Mini – Multiwave Tremolo Effects Processor for iPhone

Johnny Mini is a powerful and versatile stereo multiwave tremolo effect designed for Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, perfect for adding everything from classic guitar amp style tremolo to pulsating, rhythmic multiwave modulation effects for guitar, synths, voice and more. Harmonic Tremolo modes create vintage phaser and univibe like tones, you can also modulate the rate of the main LFOs with a second LFO for interesting speed sweep effects.

In addition to Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, Johnny Mini can process external hardware by connecting a professional USB audio interface such as the Apogee Jam or Apogee ONE, and many more compatible USB interfaces. You can also use the built in headset microphone. Guitarists can use the effects live by connecting the output of their audio interface to an amp.

Johnny Mini supports USB MIDI interfaces via the Camera Connection kit, Bluetooth MIDI (iOS 8), Virtual MIDI and WiFi connections. The MIDI Learn function lets you easily assign your MIDI controller’s knobs and sliders to control Johnny’s effect parameters.

Here’s what users are saying:

” With Stereo Designer, Christopher has created one of the most impressive/creative stereo enhancement processors I’ve ever had the pleasure to use. If there was a VST/AU version for the desktop then I’d buy it in a heartbeat….”
– Music App Blog (www.musicappblog.com)

“Add depth to your sounds –
This can help add a missing dimension to your music. Try running a synth or drum app through it. Use an audio interface to process guitars, hardware synths, or even a signal from your desktop DAW. It works really well with the developer’s other apps too. Great with Audiobus.”

Elastic Drums arrives for your iPhone

Elastic Drums has arrived on the app store at last! Here’s everything you need to know …

Elastic Drums is a music app with 6 channels of synthesized drum sounds, a step sequencer and 4 fx channels, all tweakable in an elastic way. The sound range is from analog “oldschool” beatbox to the weirdest effect drone soundscapes.

Features:

  • 6 synth channels with 10 different percussion synth engines (kick, snare, hit, clap, tom, … fm, grain)
  • 12 parameters for each synth engine
  • automation for each parameter via knob recording or velocity
  • 4 send effect channels with 2×11 mono effects and 2 x 9 stereo effects
  • automation for all of the 8 possible effect parameters via xy pad
  • master effects (stutter, delay, compressor …)
  • 16 step sequencer for the 6 channels, each with it’s own tempo multiplier & length
  • record audio and export to Soundcloud or Audioshare
  • email audio recordings and presets
  • iOS 8 supported

Because all sounds get generated in realtime, the app is cpu heavy! iPhones 5 and greater can handle it with no problem, on iPhone 4s and iPad 2 effects 3 and 4 get switched off by the engine automatically to save some cpu power.

Plans for upcoming versions:

  • genuine iPad version (landscape instead of portrait)
  • Audiobus support
  • IAA support
  • midi support
  • new sequencer features (rolls, etc.)
  • new synth engines (tom tom, sampler, etc)

Elastic Drum is out at an introduction price of $3,99 instead of $7,99

Focusrite announce iTrack Pocket for your iPhone

Now this looks like something truly awesome and also like a bit of hardware I’d really like to get my hands on too.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“iTrack Pocket is a portable, high quality stereo microphone and guitar input that lets you create and share exceptional videos using your iPhone.

Designed for singer-songwriters who want their YouTube videos to sound as great as they look, it lets you easily apply mastering effects and share directly to YouTube with outstanding quality your subscribers will love.”

“iPhone microphones are great for making phone calls, but they struggle to capture musical performances. They simply aren’t designed to do justice to the sound of vocals and guitar.

That’s why Apple officially approved iTrack Pocket. It holds your iPhone at the perfect angle for recording, then captures your performance using a stereo microphone that eclipses the quality of your iPhone mic and a dedicated guitar input with built-in amp simulation.”

“iTrack Pockets lets you capture audio in any of your favourite iPhone recording apps, including GarageBand.

Alternatively, for the quickest and easiest way to create truly exceptional sounding music videos on your iPhone, we recommend you download our free Impact app.

It enhances the sound quality of your videos using powerful mastering and audio effects, which you can apply with a few taps. Find out more about it now or download it for free here.”

This page at focusrite has lots more detail about the interface and specs too.

So for now you can use that page to sign up to find out more and also get their new app, Impact, which is probably worth a look too.

Deregulator arrives for your iPhone

Deregulator it’s a mini-processor of stereo effects with Echo, Delay and Reverberator. Input signal goes to echo and delay simultaneously. Then delayed and echoed signal lands into reverberator. All parameters of this effects may be randomised at once and some key parameters can be randomised dynamically all time. On output we have wide effects range from simple mono echo/delay/reverb and combinations to near granulation live when remains of sounds create nebula around original input and like morning mist its blurring and smudging sound into scape of something new, vibrant and beautiful (degree of beautifulness depends on what you feed in D).
Delay just repeat sound pieces and size of every piece can be randomised, this chop and remix original sound into sometimes very glitchy, something new. Echo behaves like a usual echo unless you start randomising delay and feedback parameters. Reverb have three parameters, room size, damping and wetness of output. Off course all of them are randomisible. Randomising its a root of conception in this little app.
How it sounds like? Lets walk together to the border that splits effects from synthesisers where only granular with live input lives and question this line, she is exist? You must play with it or go to soundcloud(tag deregulator) for examples.

Go to look at instruction and detailed description on ckek.ru

Feature list:

  • Three linked effect module (Echo, Delay and Reverb)
  • Randomisers for every parameters of this effects
  • Ability to randomise all parameters at once
  • Recording of affected audio to wav
  • Share files to iTunes, AudioCopy 2, AudioShare
  • Audiobus of course
  • 25 non-factory presets slots
  • Stereo/mono

Coming soon:

  • Universal app(Yeah, download once and run everywhere)
  • Audiobus 2 and all slots
  • IAA

Tested on iPhone 4s(iOS 6&7), iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPad 2, iPad New and iPod touch 4. And i don’t recommend run this app on something lower then 4s. On iPod4 lag is too big, Deregulator need ~100mb ram and more power in heart. iPhone 4s/iPod5 is recommended as low line to work comfortably.

Have fun and make some noise %)

The app is priced at $1.99.
