Cyclop updated – Sugar Bytes bring technical tweaks to their mono synth app

When my more experiment side wants a shot at music creation, Sugar Bytes software is often where I end up. I'm fortunate enough to own some of their desktop-based instruments and effects but I think I've also got a full set of the various ports of these over to iOS. As I mentioned earlier this week with Korg, some iOS developers prefer to keep their updates few and far between (perhaps because they tend to have more comprehensive pre-release technical testing?). Sugar Bytes are in that group … [Read more...]

Egoist update – Sugar Bytes bring their brilliant iOS groove instrument up-to-date

Sugar Bytes have built quite a fan base amongst iOS musicians with apps such as Effectrix (a step-based multi-effects sequencer), Turnado (real-time multi-effects), Thesys (a very powerful step-sequencer plugin), Cyclop (their mono/bass synth instrument) and Unique (a powerful synth). Their other headline app - Egoist - which I reviewed when it was released, caused quite a stir and, if you are into electronic music production combining sliced loops, bass grooves and drum beats, the app ought … [Read more...]

Unique updated – Sugar Bytes tweak to their iOS synth including Audiobus 3 support

I did a full review of Sugar Bytes new iOS synth app Unique here on the blog soon after it launched. As regular readers of the blog will be aware, I’m a self-confessed of a fan of Sugar Bytes and I use Turnado, Thesys, Egoist, Cyclop and Effectrix on a regular basis in my iOS music making (and on the desktop!). Unique is another great addition to the line-up and, while I'm sure I own way more synth apps that I will ever need, at App Store pricing that's not such a difficult temptation to give in … [Read more...]

Unique review – Sugar Bytes port their desktop synth to iPad and iPhone

Considering I’m really a guitar player bought up on blues and classic rock, I have a bit of an unusual thing for Sugar Bytes. The company specialise is music software aimed very much at the more electronic musician and, even within that niche, their virtual instruments and effects are pretty much ‘out there’. Perhaps not the first choice for your latest hard rock song? OK, so I spend quite a lot of time creating production music as well…. and that does involve me in spreading my musical wings … [Read more...]

Egoist update – Sugar Bytes bring new features to their brilliant iOS groove instrument

Sugar Bytes have built quite a fan base amongst iOS musicians with apps such as Effectrix (a step-based multi-effects sequencer), Turnado (real-time multi-effects), Thesys (a very powerful step-sequencer plugin) and Cyclop (their mono/bass synth instrument). Oh, and there is also the brand new Unique (well, brand new for iOS; the desktop version has been around for some time) which I hope to do a full review of soon..... Their other headline app - Egoist - which I reviewed when it was … [Read more...]

Unique launched – Sugar Bytes bring their popular desktop synth to iOS

As regular readers of the blog will be aware, I’m a self-confessed of a fan of Sugar Bytes and I use Turnado, Thesys, Egoist, Cyclop and Effectrix on a regular basis in my iOS music making. I also own a number of these in their desktop formats and, again, they get regular use. Most of the iOS app are ports of desktop-based software and there are still a number of candidates that Sugar Bytes could give the same treatment too. Which is exactly what they have done with the launch of Unique that … [Read more...]
