DC-9 Overdrive review – Blamsoft add some overdrive to their iOS AU plugin collection

The ‘new for iOS9’ Audio Units (AU) plugin format has now been with us for a few months but I think it is fair to say that the impact of this technology has, so far at least, been somewhat muted. Like all new (well, in this case, new to iOS at least) software technologies it is undoubtedly going to take developers some time to establish what potential AU may hold for them. We did have a few early adopters with MultitrackStudio for iPad becoming the first DAW/sequencer able to host AU plugins … [Read more...]

Resampler review – Blamsoft add a third iOS AU plugin to their catalogue

A couple of months ago we saw the first signs of activity with the ‘new for iOS9’ Audio Units (AU) plugin format with MultitrackStudio for iPad becoming the first DAW/sequencer able to host AU plugins and Remaster the first AU effects plugin. Like all new (well, in this case, new to iOS at least) software technologies it is undoubtedly going to take developers some time to establish what potential AU may hold for them. It’s difficult to imagine that more effects and/or virtual instruments … [Read more...]

MicSwap Pro update – Future Moments bring AU plugin support to their mic simulation app

About 12 months ago, I reviewed what I think was the first example of microphone modelling technology for iOS; MicSwap from developer Future Moments. MicSwap is a universal app and is supplied in two forms; a free version (with some feature restrictions) and a ‘Pro’ version (which is what I tried out; currently UK£14.99). The app works with iOS7.1 or later. The app simulates a number of different microphone types and these are depicted in some fairly obvious graphics so you can make a good … [Read more...]

Zero Chorus review – Blamsoft add a second iOS AU plugin to their catalogue

A few weeks ago we saw the first signs of activity with the ‘new for iOS9’ Audio Units (AU) plugin format with MultitrackStudio for iPad becoming the first DAW/sequencer able to host AU plugins and Remaster the first AU effects plugin.

Zero Reverb review – Blamsoft deliver an iOS reverb in AU plugin format

Ruismaker update – some tweaks for both of Bram Bos’ iOS AUi plugin drum machines

It's only a few months since Bram Bos launched both Ruismaker and Ruismaker FM, his two iOS drum apps that are delivered in an AU plugin format. Both are interesting not because they feature some uber-complex and sophisticated drum programming options but perhaps because they are designed to be the opposite of that; drum synths that are easy to program, have modest demands on the iOS hardware host and very easy to get to grips with. And Bram has not let the grass grow under his feet; both … [Read more...]

Ruismaker update – refinements for compact iOS AUi drum machine plugin

We are beginning to see some positive signs on the AU plugin format. Progress has been slow but it is starting to take hold under iOS and I'm more than happy to lend a helping hand with what I think is important technology by promoting some of the excellent developers/apps that have already taken the plunge with AU. And, as I mentioned a couple of months ago, Ruismaker from developer Bram Bos was the first iOS drum machine app to appear in that format (closely followed by the equally good … [Read more...]
