    Phasemaker – DX7-like AU-compatible FM synth


    by Bram Bos


    The first 6-Operator FM Synth on iOS, building on the legacy of the classic synthesizers that defined the digital era of the 1980s.

    It also happens to be the first FM Audio Unit instrument (AUv3), offering tight integration in many leading mobile DAWs, such as Auria, Garageband, Cubasis, Modstep and AUM.

    (Note: there is a known bug in the current version of Garageband which may cause compatibility issues with some AU plugins).

    Frequency Modulation brings rich timbres and dynamic evolving sounds full of personality which are impossible to create with analog modelling. The 6-Operator architecture allows for lively multi-layered sounds with lots of expression and playability.

    Phasemaker's characteristic FM sound will add classic digital character to your mobile sonic arsenal which no other analog synth can bring.

    System requirements: iPad 4+, iPad Mini 2+, iOS 9 or higher

    - Audio Unit v3 compatible
    - CoreMidi compatible standalone mode (with background audio)
    - Custom preset management; user presets available across AU hosts
    - Dozens of factory presets
    - 42 FM Algorithms (including all 32 DX7 layouts)
    - 12 Oscillators, including the 8 original TX81z waveforms
    - All 106 parameters can be automated using MIDI CC and AU Parameters
    - Vintage sounding chorus and reverb effects for classic ambiance

    Tines - Electric Piano

    !!! Current price is an intro offer (~37.5% off!) !!!

    Tines emulates an electric piano. With internal effects like a stereo tremolo, a multiband distortion panel and a subtle roomy reverb Tines can sound like anything between a dreamy slick Rhodes to a nasty Wurlitzer. A finetuned velocity curve makes it a joy to play Tines on an external keyboard.


    • AUv3, works with AUv3 compatible hosts like Garageband, Cubasis, AUM etc.

    • Tremolo depth and speed (XY pad) with phase offset

    • Variable decay time

    • Variable Air (room) amount

    • Multiband distortion

    Note: Tines in stand-alone mode does not support IAA, Audiobus or MIDI. You can play it using the keys at the bottom, but that’s it. We recommend using Tines with AUv3 compatible hosts.

    iPhone 6 or later is recommended.
    iPad 4 or later is recommended.

    ROTOR - Tangible Modular Music...

    (50% OFF Launch price - Regular price: $19.99)

    **PLEASE NOTE: This App is officially supported on the following devices: iPad Air/Air2, iPad Mini 2/3/4, and iPad Pro.**

    ROTOR is the new app that turns the iPad into a complete music performance suite. Using the optional ROTOR controllers, which can be purchased separately, it also brings the reactable tangible music experience that has captivated musicians such as Björk, Coldplay or Gui Boratto, for the first time into the iPad.

    … although it includes components from all of them. ROTOR incorporates dozens of modules, among instruments, audio effects, modulators and controllers, all interconnectable between them, which can be used for creating the most expressive and intricate patches in a unique way. It is an unprecedented multitouch/tangible instrument specially designed for live interaction and performance.

    With our exclusive physical control objects especially conceived for the iPad, and which can be purchased separately, ROTOR brings the unique tangible experience of the reactable for the first time to the iPad! This means that while all standard multi-touch capabilities are preserved, the ability to control any parameter by moving and twisting our tangible pucks over the iPad’s surface, brings 3 additional degrees of freedom to each hand!

    ROTOR can be perfectly used without the controllers. Controllers will be available for purchase on November 2016.

    ROTOR comes with automatic real-time key detection and time stretching algorithms that allow for samples, loops and sequences to stay not only in sync but also in harmony with each other. All wavefiles can be configured either as masters, thus determining at any instant the tonality of the whole session, or as slaves, thus adapting automatically to this computed tonality.

    ROTOR MIC/LINE IN module and its panoply of effects and modulators allows to process voice, guitars, or any other instrument, in unheard ways. With Audiobus, ROTOR can be used as an input/output device in combination with any other compatible music apps. Any ROTOR module can also receive external MIDI control from any user-selectable MIDI port/channel. Moreover, its integration of Ableton Link allows ROTOR to play in perfect sync with Ableton Live and other Ableton Link compatible iOS apps running in other devices.

    ROTOR includes dozens of multi-touch control panels such as virtual keyboards, polyphonic and monophonic step-sequencers, envelope generators, or 2D panels, which empower to control in real-time, every detail or nuance of the performance. On the other hand, interconnecting less linear and less predictable modules, such as the accelerometer input, the beat slicer or the feedback delay, opens a whole universe of generative and serendipitous creations. This, combined with ROTOR’s live recording capabilities, which simplifies the capturing of loops on-the-fly and always in sync, turns ROTOR into the ULTIMATE LOOP CREATOR MACHINE.

    ROTOR also comes with 100+ high quality loops and sessions created by professional music producers. Along with these loops, users can import their own ones and combine them with ROTOR’s advanced synthesis and processing capabilities. From House or EDM to the most experimental generative soundscapes, ROTOR sonic versatility is unparalleled.

    WaveMapper updated with AU support


    by Wolfgang Palm


    PPG WaveMapper is the second next-generation iOS based synth from Wolfgang Palm, who in 2012 released the PPG WaveGenerator to critical acclaim from both press and public.

    In final development the PPG WaveMapper offers iPad users a second synthesiser to compliment the already loved PPG WaveGenerator from Wolfgang Palm. PPG WaveMapper allows the user the opportunity to create limitless sounds from this unique and powerful new technology.

    PPG WaveMapper features the Sound Map, which maps the various sounds in a way to easily access and experiment with them, more importantly the PPG WaveMapper features a new synthesis system which maps the waveforms of a sound into a new kind of wavetable which preserves the sound characteristics better than classic Wavetable synthesis and at the same time allows for the manipulations which make WT synthesis so unique.

    The Mapping window is the visualisation of a pool of programs on which “modules” float. Those modules represent certain parameters of the synthesiser engine and each module can be placed on one of 32 programs. The moment an item is placed on map then the parameters of that module will take on the settings of those parameters in the underlying program on the Mapping window.

    People who do not posses synth-programming skills can use this mapping technology as a starting point to create complex sounds. For example a user can drag a string sound source onto a drum envelope, or a guitar sound onto a string envelope – the concept is simple, yet incredibly powerful.
    Power users can delve deep into the back end of any sound using a full set of professional features;

    ▪ New Sound map concept – create new sounds playful and experimental
    ▪ 3 types of synthesis – the optimal type for kind of each sounds
        Classic wavetables – for the typical PPG sounds
        Time compressed samples – more authentic sounds, allowing analysis of user samples
        Pure samples – classic sample playback
    ▪ Analyzer – convert your own samples into the new format or into wavetables
    ▪ 3 oscillators capable for totally independent sound sources
    ▪ 90 sound resources – a huge sound palette, from real instruments to abstract wavetables
    ▪ 4 parameter editor pages – comfortable and detailed access to all the parameters
    ▪ 3 Noise generators, for audio and modulations
    ▪ Ringmodulator
    ▪ Classic 24 dB Lowpass Filter, combined with an overdrive simulation.
    ▪ Dual amplifier, for versatile control of 2 audio signals as well as panning.
    ▪ 13 Envelopes, for independent control of pitch, waveform, filter, noise, gain and panning.
    ▪ 4 LFOs – with 5 waveforms
    ▪ Delay/Reverb effect
    ▪ Versatile Arpeggiator
    ▪ Schematic touch keyboard – Build your own keyboard, with the keys
        you prefer for your music.
    ▪ Powerful sound browser – sorting by category, bank management.
    ▪ Virtual and Hard-MIDI in/out – sending/receiving keys and controllers.
    ▪ Audio Unit Extension (AU) with 3 pages.
    ▪ Inter-app audio (IAA) support - audio and MIDI.
    ▪ Audiobus 2 support.
    ▪ Import audio from AudioShare.
    ▪ Export audio to AudioShare.
    ▪ 30 min audio recording and Audio copy.

    WaveGenerator updated with AU support


    by Wolfgang Palm


    PPG WaveGenerator is the latest development from the inventor of wavetable synthesis, Wolfgang Palm. It is a next generation synthesizer, building on the heritage of the PPG Wave keyboards.

    The PPG WaveGenerator comes with a multitude of wavetables. The sound material contains the typical sounds from the original PPG wave models, as well as many new sounds generated by versatile analysis tools and also hand edited waves.

    This app enables the user, to create his own wavetables in a playful way, and to hear the result immediately. Also you can construct the waves by adding harmonics very precise.

    Another way is to transform a picture into a wavetable. You can load photos from your album or even shoot a picture with the camera.

    The waves are collected in a grid of 256 fields, to which the 3 oscillators of the synthesizer have arbitrary and independent access.

    In a 3D display you get a visual impression on how the sound evolves. You can turn around the 3D object and zoom in and out,

    The Parameters of the synthesizer are divided into modules, which allows easy, yet powerful editing.

    It contains 3 oscillators with independent control of pitch and waveform. Each oscillator has its own glide, which gives a very dynamic sound.

    With a sophisticated routing system, the diverse modulation sources can be connected to all important control points.

    The keyboard is configurable totally freely, so you can setup all well-known musical scales, but also all imaginable custom scales that best fit into your music.

    PPG WaveGenerator benefits all advantages of the iPad, like X/Y control after the key on event, or two finder gestures for spectrum control. After a key is hit, the tone may be modified and modulated in various ways, just by moving your finger.

    A comfortable browser lets you sort the sound programs; you can categorize and rate them. Also complete custom sound banks may be created.

    All significant parameters are controllable via MIDI.

    There is a built in context specific help for all pages and modules.

    Key Features:

    • Creation of your own waves and wavetables.
    • Playful sound creation simply by drawing or picking harmonics
    • 3D page, visualization of the wavetables, transformation from photos into wavetables.
    • 256 waves assembled within a wave grid
