The Strange Agency releases HyperSpace 3D synthesizer app

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 24, 2012 - comment 0 comments

The Strange Agency has released HyperSpace, a waveform-sculpting 3-D oscilloscope synthesizer app for iOS.

The Stange Agency HyperSpace

HyperSpace uses a unique algorithm to generate endless mesmerizing images from sound. It works similarly to a harmonograph, but uses its 3 voice oscillators instead of pendulums to create images. Each oscillator is mapped to a dimension in 3-D space. Playing a single note creates a wave, like on an ordinary oscilloscope. Playing two notes at once creates a plane as with the harmonograph, and playing a three note chord creates a volume.

There are two oscillators to crossfade between. These can be set to standard shapes as with older synths, but HyperSpace also lets you sculpt the waves with touch! Changing the wave shapes of course alters the sound, but it also alters the generated imagery. The variety of imagery generated with this simple algorithm is truly astonishing.

HyperSpace features

  • Selectable keyboard scales for easier jams.
  • Fat keys option for fat fingers.
  • Three voice polyphony.
  • Two LFO modulators.
  • Lowpass filter effect.
  • Echo effect.
  • Audio Copy.
  • iTunes file sharing.
  • Works on iPad and iPhone 4s/4/3GS.

The app is available to purchase for $0.99 USD.

VolumeShaper 3 features

  • Unique waveform editing — Just like using a graphics program, draw waveforms with ease and precision. Create smooth bezier curves, peaks, cuts and slopes using soft or hard breakpoints, producing gentle transitions or sharp bends in the waveform.
  • The LFO — This LFO can take you places. Set it free-running, synced to the beat of your sequencer or synced to the frequency of a note you’re playing, from long, evolving LFO lengths right up to the audible range.
  • New: MIDI triggering — VolumeShaper is an audio effect, but can receive MIDI from your host sequencer or any virtual or physical MIDI port. Extremely useful. For example, set it to retrigger the LFO when you play a note — perfect for defining the volume envelope of your synths and drum players. You can even set the LFO to the frequency of the note that you play.
  • New: Oscilloscope — Get a good look at your sounds: A sample-accurate oscilloscope displays the incoming and processed audio signal, so you can see exactly where to draw the curve. Allows faster and more accurate edits.
  • User-friendly design — All the controls are available within a single window, in a clear, neatly-organized design that still looks OK after six solid hours in the studio. Version 3 features improved contrast and a fresh color scheme.
  • Parameter automation — From LFO speed to waveform selection, absolutely everything can be automated. Our tip: Automate the shapes of the waveforms and breakpoint movements for dynamic effects.
  • Exceptional sound quality — VolumeShaper computes the audio at a per-sample basis. Its LFO is interpolated with cubic interpolation and will always stay in sync, even when you make tempo changes in your host software, or jump ahead to different parts of your track.

VolumeShaper 3 beta is available for Mac and Windows (VST/AU/RTAS). The VolumeShaper 2 plug-in is now available to purchase for 15 EUR/$20 USD incl. VAT. The upgrade from version 2 to 3 will be free of charge.

Jon Grove J-Scope free oscilloscope plugin released

Jon Grove has released J-Scope, an oscilloscope plug-in for Windows.

Whilst experimenting with writing a VST synthesizer plugin, I found I needed an oscilloscope whose behaviour I understood. The synth plugin has not yet made it to a state where I feel it’s worth releasing, but I think the oscilloscope may be useful to someone.

I’ve tried to make it fairly similar to a real oscilloscope, although the fact that the waveform is fed to it in bursts which don’t necessarily synchronise with the computer’s display refresh rate or with the oscilloscope’s sweep rate makes it hard to accurately model a real screen.

J-Scope features

  • Accepts a stereo signal, and can display it in several modes.
  • Timebase from 1s/div (0.1Hz) to 0.1ms/div (1kHz).
  • Gain (Y) from x0.1 to x100.
  • DC or AC coupled.
  • Variable X-offset of trace(s).
  • Y-offsets of stereo traces individually adjustable.
  • Adjustable trigger level, on positive or negative slopes.
  • Delayed triggering.
  • Display ‘freeze’ option.
  • Adjustable phosphor persistence.
  • Optional graticule with variable brightness.
  • 8 preset modes for quick setup.

J-Scope for Windows (VST) is available as a free download.
