The lovely people at Klevgränd have brought yet another new app to add to their already excellent portfolio.
Baervaag brings FM synthesis to the masses! An easy to use but still powerful and tweakable synthesizer, accessible to everyone. Several parameters are sensitive to velocity which makes Baervaag very expressive and fun to play.
The additional LP filter, ”Wobbler”, and a simple stereo chorus makes this synthesizer versatile and a joy to tweak.
AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like GarageBand, Cubasis, Auria, AUM etc
77 handcrafted presets created by professional musicians
FM Feedback, Filter, ADSR Attack and Volume can be modulated by velocity
Oscillators can be shaped between sine, square and PWM
One ADSR for each oscillator.
Controllable wobble factor that adds analogue unpredictability.
Important: Baervaag in stand-alone mode does not support IAA or MIDI. You can try it out using the keyboard at the bottom, but that’s it. We recommend using Baervaag with AUv3 compatible hosts.
iPhone 6 or later is recommended. iPad Air 1 or later is recommended.
And it has a very unusual way of describing itself too, read on …
At the end of a long day at the mixing desk, when everything has finally fallen into place, comes the best moment (just before pouring that glass of whisky): load an instance of NoLimits at the end of the chain, turn that one knob, lean back and enjoy. This look-ahead limiter completes DDMF’s mixing and mastering portfolio and will be your weapon of choice to bring you up to competitive levels. Features: optional auto-gain, optional transient stereo linkage, advanced mode for variable lookahead, attack and release times, and a state-of-the-art dithering algorithm. Last but not least: it sounds smooth, yet powerful. This app comes in AUv3 format for use in the latest generation of iOS audio hosts like Garageband, Cubasis or Auria Pro.
NoLimits Audio Unit Limiter by DDMF on the app store, priced at $9.99:
Lofionic Mani is a rich and evocative analogue-modelled chorus effect for iOS, supporting AudioUnit, Inter-App Audio and AudioBus. In addition to the standard mix, rate and depth controls, Mani adds a switchable feedback control, for metallic flanger-like effects, and a pre-delay switch for extra body.
For anyone interested in another AU for their iOS set up, read on …
FuxEQ is a new 7-band parametric equalizer (audio unit) plugin for your music or sound production environment. A bunch of exceptional features, some of them not found in any other EQ software makes it truly unique:
The (high and low) shelving bands have a unique “asymmetry” parameter which allows finer control of the frequency curve around the edge frequency. This new feature is especially powerful for balancing frequency content of complementary sounds such as bass drum/bass guitar or different vocals and harmony instruments. For example, use it to “thin out” your bass drum in the lower mids/upper bass range, making room for your bass guitar… (Please compare the respective screenshots.)
A special “High/Low Balance” filter band is extremely useful for quick yet subtle and gentle adaptation of the warmth or brightness of a sound. (Please compare the screenshots.) This filter allows to tune the sound very smoothly without dominant coloring.
Filter frequencies can be adjusted up to 20000 Hz without any compromise in quality or bandwidth. Unlike many other equalizers FuxEQ does not “squeeze” frequency curves when approaching the 20000 Hz area. (Please compare the screenshots.)
A fully compatible Mac OS plugin will be available soon, making your workflow seamless across both platforms by transfer of parameter settings.
Each filter band has its own gain compensation parameter, allowing for loudness correct A/B comparison FOR EACH BAND — without interrupting your listening experience by necessary gain adjustments.
The carefully designed interface is sensitive to many intuitive gestures and thus allows both easy and fine grained control even for small displays or views:
Grab markers to adjust frequencies and boost/cut.
Grab frequency curves to adjust the individual gain compensation.
Select or deselect filter bands by simple taps to switch between display of detailed parameters and a clear, tidy overview.
Use the sliders for quick coarse parameter adjustments and swipe over the values, parameter names or the sliders outside the thumb for fine tuning.
Double tap curves to active/deactivate the filter band.
