AudioMaster Pro: For Podcasts And Music is here

From the developer behind MicSwap, MicSwap Pro, and AudioMaster (not pro) comes the pro version of AudioMaster, which looks pretty good to me. But it isn’t cheap at $70. Here are the details.

Import audio and instantly get a mastered version. Immediately hear a boost in volume and overall sweetening of the mix. Export, save and share anywhere. Audiobus, IAA and AU compatible. If you’d like to try before you buy, check out AudioMaster (not Pro).

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:

Mercury Drum Sequencer for iPad appears

I’m not sure what to make of this new drum sequencer from a previously unknown developer. It looks very simple and straightforward, but perhaps too much so? I may be being unfair without having tried it first.

Anyway, here’s the app’s description:

Mercury Drum Sequencer is a sample based drum machine and step sequencer.

Features:

  • Five tracks with two sound sources (osc) each.
  • Osc and track sound tweaking parameters.
  • Individual track effects.
  • Each osc and track parameter can be overridden per step, by holding the desired step and changing the parameter in question.
  • Supports syncing with other music apps using Ableton Link.

Zario is a very minimal synth for your iPhone

Although when I say minimal I don’t necessarily mean lacking in sound quality. More than the interface, and indeed the app’s description, can be described as minimal at best. That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with minimal, but I would have appreciated a little more than this description:

“With Zario you can set a single oscillator to your desired waveform, customise the keyboard, and play any lead with ultimate expression.”

However, the Zario site is a little more helpful, and has this to say.

“Pro Tips

Disable those annoying pull out menus that come with iOS

Just activate guided access!

Go to your device’s settings. From there keep going to general, accessibility, and all the way down you’ll find guided access. Once you activate guided access, all you have to do is open Zario, and once you’re sure you dont have to leave the app, triple tap your home button

No more pull out tabs coolin’ down your jamz.

Tuning

More of a beginner tip really. Notice that the Zario board is a lot like a keyboard. So if you manage to keep the blue pull down bar perfectly centered within a key, you’re playing a tuned note

Sine Waves

Sine waves might not be audible if you aren’t plugged into speakers or headphones. So always plug in to work with sine waves. Also, always plug in cause everything sounds better anyways!

Support

Inter App Audio

Unfortunately Zario crashes if you try to use it with Garageband’s Inter App Audio feature. Right now the best way to use Garageband with Zario is to use Audiobus. However, it might be a bit buggy to use Zario with Audiobus without anything plugged into the headphone jack. With headphones or speakers plugged in, Zario works perfectly with Audiobus.”
