PSOFT releases PSOFT Audio Player for iPhone

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 28, 2014 - comment 0 comments

PSOFT has announced the release of PSOFT Audio Player, a multipurpose music player app for iPhone/iPod touch.

PSOFT Audio Player

PSOFT Audio Player is a special music player with which you can modify the sound however you like. It allows you to apply to the audio data various types of signal transformations in real-time, such as changing the playing speed and key, removing or extracting sound from a specified band, analyzing the musical scale and displaying chords, etc.

The app stands out due to its remarkable audio quality. With usual audio devices, changes to the key and playing speed almost always result in a noticeable degradation of the audio quality. However, by using our company’s “PhaseGear” technology, this app succeeds in reducing audio degradation to its utmost minimum. The result is surprisingly natural-sounding audio.

Use the app for all kinds of tasks such as ear training or language study by slowing down the playing speed, creating karaoke tracks by removing the vocals from the original track, listening to podcasts more efficiently by increasing the playing speed, etc.

The app is available for purchase for $7.99 USD.

Sinevibes releases Sequential for iPad

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 21, 2014 - comment 1 comment

Sinevibes has announced the release of Sequential for iPad, its first iOS app.

Sinevibes Sequential for iPad

Combining an audio player with a multi-effect sequencer, Sequential lets you instantly reshape any loop beyond imaginable, create amazing breaks, fills and transitions, and turn even the simplest sounds into unique animated textures.

Sequential for iPad features

  • Powerful effects. Sequential lets you load audio samples for looped playback and apply up to 11 different effects in a rhythmical fashion. It includes many classic algorithms such as low- and high-pass filters, flanger, resonator, bit crusher, but goes much further with Sinevibes’ trademark wave transformer, circuit bender and even synthesizers controlled by the sound’s dynamics.
  • Fun workflow. Creating effect patterns with Sequential is more gameplay than workflow. With its bold shapes, clever color coding and all-round use of animations, it feels alive and almost connected straight to your brain. All parameters you change are saved along the audio files and recalled without you even noticing — everything just works the way you think it should.
  • Instant recording. Whatever you hear coming out of Sequential can be recorded, even if you activate recording as you play. Moreover, all recordings are trimmed precisely to a bar, meaning you will always get audio that loops rhythmically.
  • Diverse content. Sequential comes with a tasty selection of bass and rhythm loops in a wide variety of music styles, including house, drum’n’bass, r’n’b, dubstep, trap, hardstyle, electro, and more.
  • Easy sharing. You can import your own loops and export recordings both via the audio pasteboard and iTunes file sharing. Sequential supports .wav and .aiff files in 16 bit 44.1 KHz format.

Sequential for iPad is available to purchase for $4.99 USD.

Positive Grid releases Beats Metronome, Jam Player & AccuTune for iOS

Positive Grid Beats Metronome

Positive Grid has announced the release of a trio of new iOS music-utility apps: Beats Metronome, Jam Player, and AccuTune.

All offer the same high level of sound quality, features, and usability found in the company’s flagship app, JamUp Pro.

“Each of these apps performs a specific function and does it really well,” says product manager Calvin Abel. “We’re confident that musicians will find all three to be essential items for their software toolkits.”

Beats Metronome combines a comprehensive feature set with an elegant user interface. It can be set to a whopping 35 different time signatures, including compound and complex meters. It also sports a handy tap-tempo function—great for figuring out song tempos—and 17 different click sounds. Turning on Flash Mode in the Settings page enables a strobe-like flash on each beat (it can also be set to flash only on the downbeat). This mode can be very useful onstage or in other low-light environments.


Beats Metronome for iPhone and iPad.

A different type of graphic depiction of the beat is provided when the Visual Beats function is turned on and the iOS device is rotated to landscape mode. The display changes to show circles that represent the beats in a measure. As the metronome counts the time, the appropriate circle is highlighted, providing an easy-to-follow visualized version of the tempo.

Jam Player is a simple-to-use, yet enormously powerful app that promises to make learning and practicing songs a lot easier by letting the user seamlessly manipulate the tempo and pitch of a recorded song.

Positive Grid Jam Player
Jam Player – Time and Pitch Audio Player.

The first step is to load a song into the Jam Player from the iOS device’s iTunes library. The Speed control knob can then be used to slow down the tempo of the song without affecting its pitch. For instance, a super-fast guitar solo could be slowed significantly to make it easier to learn, and then sped up periodically as the player becomes more comfortable with it. The Pitch control raises and lowers the pitch but has no impact on the tempo, and it’s a great way for a singer who’s learning a song to change the key of the original track to match his or her vocal range. Using the Speed and Pitch controls in tandem allows for manipulation of both variables. The app’s sophisticated pitch and time algorithms provide stunningly good results, even at extreme settings.

Positive Grid Accutune

As its name suggests, AccuTune is a super-accurate chromatic tuner. It responds either to notes captured by the iPhone or iPad’s microphone, or through a guitar adapter like Positive Grid’s JamUp Plug.

It provides two different views: the top of the screen is a standard meter display and the bottom a note-wheel. Both offer a great level of detail, making precise tuning easy. Pressing the Setup button brings you to the Settings screen, where you can change the calibration from the default 440 Hz, set transposition, adjust temperament, and more. Most importantly, the AccuTune features a smooth response, making tuning easy.

Beats Metronome and AccuTune list for $4.99 USD each and Jam Player for $9.99 USD. Currently, all three are available for the introductory price of $0.99 USD each.
