VirSyn brings us Harmony Eight

Another interesting app from VirSyn. They seem to be getting very good at making intriguing apps for us, and Harmony Eight is no different.

Here are the details:

Up to eight pitch shifted voices are created from vocal input or instruments. Separate algorithms for optimal shifting of vocals/monophonic instruments and for any other kind of audio.

Position each voice in space ( left and right / front and back ). Modify the voice character from male to female and vice versa. Pitch shift each voice in the range of +/- one octave with preserving of formants for natural sound. Applying separate feedback delays on each voice creates complex rhythmical patterns.

Features:

  • 8 Voice Pitch Shifter with formant correction
  • Optional shifting algorithm for polyphonic sounds
  • 8 Independent delay lines with optional sync
  • Spatial voice positioning
  • Parametric Equalizer
  • Integrated Compressor/Limiter/Noise Gate
  • Ensemble effect
  • Reverb effect
  • AudioUnit for AUv3 compatible hosts.
  • Inter-app audio compatible effect.
  • Audiobus 2 compatible with state saving.
  • Support for Ableton Link
  • Low latency live usage with mic and headphones.
  • Audio recorder

 
Harmony Eight is on a launch offer price of $6.99 currently:

VirSyn launches BandShift (universal)

BandShift is a multi-band auditory filter and frequency shifter taking a new approach to manipulate the pitch of complex sound sources in realtime. The well know analog Bode frequency shifter shifts all frequencies in an input up by the same amount and thereby alters their harmonic relation and tends to produce inharmonic results. But it’s perfect in dealing with transients and sounds smooth even with high amounts of down pitching.

BandShift splits the spectrum in 27 bands and applies a different amount of frequency shifting to each band emulating a harmonic pitch shifting. This gives you perfect pitch shifting for all kind of drum sounds over a vast shifting range of +/- five octaves without disturbing the transients or introducing metallic distortions. The extreme range of shifting gives you access to a vast field of unknown sonic territory.

The possibility to apply different shiftings on each band gives you exciting possibilities: Suppose you have a drum loop which is perfect, but the bass drum is a bit too high or too low to fit in your mix then you can easily get the bass drum shifted a bit down and the rest of the spectrum remains unchanged. But it’s applications are not limited to drum sounds, they’re only limited by your imagination.

Features:

  • Multi band bode frequency shifter
  • Linear phase filter bank with 27 bands
  • AudioUnit for AUv3 compatible hosts.
  • Inter-app audio compatible effect.
  • Audiobus 2 compatible with state saving.
  • Apply effect to any song in your iTunes library.
  • MIDI Learn for X/Y Pads
  • Low latency live usage with mic and headphones.
  • Audio recorder

BandShift costs $6.99 on the app store now and is an introductory offer:

VirSyn brings us Addictive Pro, the latest addition to their excellent synth line up on iOS

1sc552x414

A new synth from VirSyn is really something to look forward to, and we haven’t had to wait long for this since they teased it with videos (see below). For now here’s the full app description for Addictive Pro.

The hybrid synthesis algorithm on which Addictive Pro is based provides you with efficient means for easy control of complex sounds far beyond usual sound synthesis methods:

Addictive Pro provides you a with unique form of Wavetable oscillators. These Wavetables are generated from the harmonic content and the free digital filter structure entered by the user.

The sound of up to 12 of this Wavetable oscillators is then further refined with a classic analog filter available in several 24dB and 12dB forms.

For the optional noise part of the sound you can use the same sophisticated digital filter struct as for the wavetable oscillators allowing for a vast variety of ever changing noisescapes.

The intelligent sound and rhythm randomizer can be applied to different sound aspects separately for really useful sound design and inspiration.

A four part polyrhythm Arpeggiator creates complex rhythmical structures with a touch of a finger.
