Hyperion Synthesizer arrived

Looks like an interesting synth. Here are the details:

Hyperion Synthesizer has:

  • Morph speed control
  • Morph depth control
  • phase shift control
  • stereo shift control
  • tremolo sound effect
  • reverb effect
  • volume control
  • envelope controls
  • 4 morph modes
  • 7 harmonics modes
  • supports MIDI keyboards via USB (full velocity and pitch shift support)
  • works as Audio Unit instrument plug-in AUV3

Troublemaker 1.4 brings nice updates to this excellent TB-303 recreation

  • Audiobus 3 Audio support
  • Audiobus 3 MIDI In + Out support
    Scales selection in the Randomization function
    – Various minor improvements and fixes

ChordFlow 1.2 is good for AB3 users

A nice update if you’re an AudioBus 3 user. ChordFlow becomes very useful indeed. Here’s what’s new:

AUDIOBUS 3 SUPPORT!!!

  • ChordFlow now provides four Audiobus 3 MIDI sender ports, one per track, and one consolidated port that transmits events from all 4 tracks.
  • You can now start and stop ChordFlow using Audiobus control panel buttons.
  • You can also use ChordFlow as a Audiobus Audio input in both Audiobus 3 and Audiobus 2.

OTHER CHANGES

  • Ableton link offset parameter range increased. Now it can be set to values from -500ms to 500ms
  • Sequencer performance tuning

DM2 – The Drum Machine also updated to v1.5

DM1 updated and DM2 as well. Here’s what’s new:

DM2 is now fully MIDI mappable. More than 130 parameters can be easily controlled by an external MIDI controller : go to the SONG page. First tap the “MIDI” button to select a MIDI controller as a Note Input source. Then tap the “MIDI LEARN” button. You can now navigate through the pages, select a Map (a blue rectangle) and play any Note or CC message on your external MIDI controller. Close the MIDI MAP screen and off you go. Please note that some Maps (for instance the OSCILLATOR PITCH) can either be in Absolute or in Relative mode. This latter is particularly useful when you are using a MIDI controller with encoders. For that just tap the “RELATIVE” or “ABSOLUTE” button when it appears on a MIDI MAP.

Enjoy,

The Audionomy Team

Mizu Pro – Music And Beat Making Studio looks a lot like another app and is a lot more expensive

When I saw the screen shots for this it struck me as looking a lot like Auxy, and yet this app costs $19.99. Not sure why though.

Here are the details, you make up your own mind.

Mizu Pro offers a complete music production environment. It allows you to create and save complete multi-track projects on your iPhone or iPad. Put a whole music studio into your pocket and you will never lose any idea while you’re away from your computer!

POWERFUL SOUND ENGINE
Create music in the same audio quality as a professional studio software;

HUGE SAMPLE LIBRARY
Thoroughly selected music samples by professional musicians;

MULTITRACK SUPPORT
Add as much instruments as you need for your track;

PIANO ROLL
Compose a lead melody, strings, bass, and drum beat. Adjust tone and duration of a sample;

SEQUENCER MODE
Combine all your loops into a whole song

SAVING AND EXPORT
Save your project on your device and download it via iTunes file sharing

Mizu Pro on the app store costs $19.99 (maybe try Auxy though)

MIDIplay might be the simple MIDI player you want for AB3

screen406x722

MIDIplay is a cheap ($0.99) MIDI file player that you need. It’s pretty simple and works with AB3. Here are the details:

An app designed for Audiobus 3 that can also be used by itself to play MIDI files using a light-weight synth. Shake the device to change synth sound.

MIDI files may be downloaded from the Internet or imported via email. Files may contain multiple tracks and channels, which can be selectively turned on/off. Sliders control tempo and pitch (can be transposed +/- 6 semi-tones).

Optimized for Audiobus 3.

Goodbye ReBirth, you will be missed

It’s a shame, but kind of understandable too. Propellerheads have removed ReBirth for iPad from the app store at long last. It was great when it first arrived for iOS back in November 2010. It was certainly easier to use than the iPhone version which is also history now. Hopefully they’ve got some other goodies planned for us.
