apeSoft giveaway results – one lucky winner of a bundle of three apps from apeSoft

Download from iTunes App Storeidensity logoStria logoDeveloper 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 ‘instruments’ and/or synths; iDensity, Stria and iPulsaret. These apps are a little more orientated towards ‘playable’ instruments and, within the last few months (indeed, the last couple of weeks for Stria and iPulsaret), all three have updated to v.2.0 and beyond.

I reviewed iPulsaret (UK£5.99) a few days ago and hope to get around to both iDensity and Stria at some stage in the next week or two. Both are exactly what you might expect given apeSoft’s track record; unconventional sounding in a very functional user interface. If experimenting with sound is your thing, then these are apps for you.

iDensity (UK£5.99) ships with a single ‘granulation stream’ but, in v.2.0 of the app there is an optional IAP (UK£2.99) that gives you up to four such streams. These can be combined and then you get the usual (well, usual for apeSoft) effects and audio scrubbing features. The end result is all sorts of weird and wonderful noise.

In contrast, Stria (UK£5.99) uses FM as the basis of its sound engine -although it is FM with an apeSoft twist – and is perhaps more of a ‘playable’ instrument. It’s a synth (sort of!) but also capable of some very unconventional sounds.

Anyway, thanks to the generosity of Alessandro at apeSoft, I had a bundle of these three apps to give away to one lucky reader here at the Music App Blog. This was, unsurprisingly, a very popular giveaway. Unfortunately, there can only be one winner….

Anyway, entries closed yesterday and the winning name was drawn at random out of the hat this morning. Again, many thanks also to everyone who entered. The winner should have now received an email with details of how to get hold of the apps within the bundle but, for information, the lucky winner of all this apeSoft goodness was….  short drum roll….

Incidentally, if you do appear as a winner in one of these giveaways and you don’t seem to have seen an email from me with the promo code details, then do make sure you check in your junk, trash or spam folders just in case your email system has ‘filed’ the message there :-)

If your into sound design or more experimental forms of electronic music making, any of the apps within the apeSoft catalogue are worth a look. However, with iPulsaret, iDensity and Stria, you could have a lot of sonic fun. Perhaps not apps to leave with a small child in a dark room (they could sound too scary!) but, used by responsible adults, capable of some amazing noises….
