Fingerlab releases DFX multi fx app for iPad

Fingerlab has announced the release of DFX, a powerful real-time quad multi-effects processor for iPad.

Fingerlab DFX

We are curious. We like new experiences. We welcome unexpected discoveries. And… we are musicians. It was an obvious choice for us to develop for the iPad the multi-effects that we wanted, that we needed for our thirst for sound. Four powerful and multipurpose chained effects, driven by trackpads for fast and easy sonic explorations. Like a million of pedal boards on a device.

Plug in any audio source, a guitar, a bass, a microphone, a DJ mixer. Or play your favorite iOS synth or drum machine with Audiobus or Apple Inter-App Audio. Or why not playing a track from your iTunes Music Library. Select one, two, three or four effects amongst 35 hi-quality digital audio effects and explore endless sonic possibilities. Delays, echos, reverbs, filters, tremolo, autowah, compressors, distortions, vocoders, resonators, etc… more possibilities that you can imagine.

At last, but not least, DFX is also a great little sound design machine. Just select one of the built-in tone synthesizers on the first effect and let your imagination build new sound landscapes at the tip of your fingers. We have had a lot fun making ours in the Factory presets. No in-apps, no ads, no fuss. DFX is simple, intuitive and fun. No user guide required ;^)

The app is available for purchase for $1.99 USD for a limited time (50% off regular).

Primal Audio has released version 1.1 of FM4, a 4-operator synthesizer app for iOS.

Primal Audio FM4

Modelled on the popular DX series from the 1980s FM4 provides the same gritty sound, with a modern interface, and without being bound by the limitations of the original units.

Every aspect of the hardware — from envelope curves to sine-table sizes and quantisation errors to digital-to-analogue converters — has been meticulously analysed, in order to recreate the raw and dirty sound of the original units.

Changes in FM4 v1.1

  • Audiobus support.
  • iOS 7.0.x crash has been fixed.
  • Performance boost: the UI responsiveness has been drastically improved.
  • App-size has been reduced with more than 60%.
  • The manual is up.
  • Added a tempo popover with manual control of the tempo.
  • Added a waveform popover with an overview of waveforms.
  • Minor bug fixes.

FM4 is available for purchase for $9.99 USD.

A free FM4 Lite version is now also available.

The lite version is fully functional except for the following limitations:

  • MIDI is disabled.
  • Inter-app Audio is disabled.
  • Audiobus is disabled.
  • Saving is disabled.
  • Only 40 factory presets are included.

SkoogMusic launches pre-order campaign for Skoog musical instrument

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 23, 2015 - comment 0 comments

SkoogMusic Ltd has launched a 2nd crowdfunding campaign to put the Skoog revolutionary musical instrument into production.

Skoog 2.0

After their first campaign missed it’s target of 75K the team at Skoog are using indiegogo once again to help bring their product to market. This uniquely expressive, uber-cool cube is designed for everyone to play, but unlike a traditional instrument, you don’t need to read music or memorise your scales to give this a go. All you need is a love of music.

Their first campaign included substantial tooling outlay but having secured additional funding from shareholders to support tooling costs the company is now running a modest pre-order campaign to enable supporters to get their hands on their tactile music interface for just £125 (that is a 54% saving on estimated retail).

Patent-pending technology and a range of music-making apps & software, make it an ‘out-of-the box’ joy, allowing for a huge range of abilities, creative talents, and musical preferences. It’s also wireless, iOS compatible and highly responsive, so ideal for anyone interested in being creative with sound.

The Skoog is available for pre-order until the February 6th, 2015.
