K-Devices has has announced the release of an AUv3 version of its audio plugin conceived for the most adventurous sound designers.

Now available for iOS, the Magma audio effect generates sound textures by blending past and present.

At the very crossroad between a micro-looper, a granular engine, a sustainer, and a sound warmer, Magma can squash sounds with reverb-like big shaking auras, or sprinkle air and make lines ethereal.

Magma continuously records the incoming signal in a short buffer, it then plays back the content by blending different moments in time, creating a texture. User can set the density and the persistence of the texture, that can sound as a reverb, an infinite sustain, a sort of spectral shadow, creating everything in between dark drones, shimmery textures and weird percussive timbres.

Several parameters let user sculpt the texture: an EQ section, a Temperature knob (a specifically designed distortion adds a noise-based amplitude modulation on higher values), and a Mid/Side knob to handle its weight in space.

Magma for iOS 9.3 or later is on sale at the App Store for the intro price of 3.49 EUR / $2.99 USD until March 31st, 2023. The regular price is 7.99 EUR / $6.99 USD.
