apeSoft/Amazing Noises updates – apps get improved Audiobus 3 support

Developer apeSoft will be familiar to many iOS musicians through their various iOS music apps and their obvious close collaboration with Amazing Noises and their various iOS music apps. Between these two developer names, I’ve given lots of coverage to apps such as apeFilter, Sparkle, iVCS3, apeDelay, iDensity, iPulsaret, Reverb FDN, Moebius Lab and Limiter. They are all very deep and powerful....  although perhaps not the obvious choices for those just starting out with software-based music … [Read more...]

Mood updated – apeSoft refine their analog-style iOS AU synth

Unless you are very new to the world of iOS music apps, the odds are you already have a collection of synth apps that is more than sufficient for your needs (yep, me too). Unfortunately, for us self-confessed app addicts, developers are still keen to put temptation in front of us....  and the most recent offering from apeSoft - Mood, which was launched back in June - has just had its first significant update with v.1.1 arriving on the App Store yesterday. I've given quite a bit of coverage to … [Read more...]

Mood launched – apeSoft offer a fresh slice of their characteristic madness with new iOS synth

Unless you are very new to the world of iOS music apps, the odds are you already have a collection of synth apps that is more than sufficient for your needs (yep, me too). Unfortunately, for us self-confessed app addicts, developers are still keen to put temptation in front of us....  and the latest iOS synth offering is Mood from popular - if always somewhat left-of-centre - developer apeSoft. I've given quite a bit of coverage to apeSoft's iOS music app collection here on the blog over the … [Read more...]

apeSoft updates – a number of their apps updated for improved Audiobus 3 performance

Developer apeSoft will be familiar to many iOS musicians through their various iOS music apps and their obvious close collaboration with Amazing Noises and their various iOS music apps. Between these two developer names, I’ve given lots of coverage to apps such as apeFilter, Sparkle, iVCS3, and apeDelay and, if you have encountered any of these apps, then you will know that apeSoft don’t really do ‘conventional’. Anyway, a number of the apeSoft/Amazing Noises apps have been updated on the … [Read more...]

apeFilter and apeDelay updated – apeSoft tweak AU support to their iOS effects apps

Developer apeSoft will be familiar to many iOS musicians through their various iOS music apps. These include iDensity, Stria and iPulsaret (all UK£5.99/US$5.99) plus the rather wonderful (and, to me, quite intimidating to program!) iVCS3 synth-meets-audio effect. If you have encountered any of these apps then you will know that apeSoft don’t really do ‘conventional’. Indeed, the iVCS3 – as a virtual recreation of a classic hardware synth from days gone by – is perhaps as conventional as it gets … [Read more...]

iVCS3 updated – apeSoft’s classic synth emulation gets some tweaks

No, I still don't really understand how to design sounds with it but apeSoft's remarkable emulation of EMS's original VSC3 hardware synth from 1969 - iVSC3 - does sound fabulous. That said, there are lots of synth-heads out there who have really taken to the iVCS3 and embraced what it has to offer in more greater detail than I have (or will ever be able to). If you are a fan of classic synths, but don't have the budget to buy the hardware, software emulations like this are as close as you are … [Read more...]

iDensity update – apeSoft’s multi-stream granulation app gets AU fine-tuning

As I posted just a few days ago, apeSoft have updated their very left-of-centre sound creation app iDensity to make it available as an AUv.3 plugin within a suitable AU host app (and there are now a good number of these). Developer apeSoft will be familiar to many iOS musicians through their various iOS music apps and their obvious close collaboration with Amazing Noises and their various iOS music apps. Between these two developer names, I’ve reviewed apps such as apeFilter, Sparkle, … [Read more...]

iDensity update – apeSoft’s multi-stream granulation app gets AU support

Developer apeSoft will be familiar to many iOS musicians through their various iOS music apps and their obvious close collaboration with Amazing Noises and their various iOS music apps. Between these two developer names, I’ve reviewed apps such as apeFilter, Sparkle, Dedalus, apeDelay and DubFilter and, if you have encountered any of these apps then you will know that apeSoft don’t really do ‘conventional’. However, apeSoft also don’t just do audio effects apps…. they also have a line of iOS … [Read more...]

iVCS3 updated – apeSoft’s emulation of classic synth does to v.2 and adds AU support

As I've mentioned before, one of the iOS synth apps that I find a bit 'scary' is apeSoft's remarkable emulation of EMS's original VSC3 hardware synth from 1969; the iVSC3. It does sound fabulous. I know this because I've used it, explored the presets and had a jolly good time doing so....  but as for then rolling my own...? Well, let's just say I'm a better guitar player than esoteric synth programmer shall we? That said, there are lots of synth-heads out there who have really taken to the … [Read more...]
