Phosphor 2 review – does Audio Damage’s first iOS synth hit the sweet spot?

Audio Damage appear to be on a mission when it comes to iOS music apps at present. I've reviewed Rough Rider 2, Grind Distortion, Eos 2, Dubstation 2, QuatroMod, Pumphouse and Replicant 2 all within the last couple of months. However, as I reported a few weeks ago, Audio Damage have also added a synth app to their catalogue; Phosphor 2. The effects apps have been universally well received....  so is Phosphor 2 keep up the high standard? And where does it sit within the very crowded iOS synth … [Read more...]

Pumphouse review – Audio Damage offer side-chain compression without the need for a side-chain

As I've posted over the last few weeks, Audio Damage are a developer on an iOS mission, with several new releases, many of which are based upon ports of their highly-regarded desktop plugins. As well as the recent Phosphor 2 synth release, we have also seen Rough Rider 2, Grind Distortion, Eos 2, Dubstation 2, FuzzPlus 3, QuatroMod and Replicant 2, all within the last few weeks. And there is no sign of any let up as we now have the release of a further new iOS app; Pumphouse. If the title … [Read more...]

QuatroMod review – Audio Damage add modulation effects to their iOS AU collection

As I've posted over the last few weeks, Audio Damage are a developer on an iOS mission, with several new releases, many of which are based upon ports of their highly-regarded desktop plugins. As well as the recent Phosphor 2 synth release, we have also seen Rough Rider 2, Grind Distortion, Eos 2, Dubstation 2, FuzzPlus 3 and Replicant 2, all within the last few weeks. And there is no sign of any let up as today sees the release of a further new iOS app; QuatroMod. As the title suggests, this … [Read more...]

FuzzPlus 3 review – Audio Damage drop some free fuzz

As I posted earlier today, Audio Damage have released another interesting iOS music app this week - Phosphor 2 is their first synth offering - to follow up on a very rapid release schedule that has included Rough Rider 2, Grind Distortion, Eos 2, Dubstation 2 and Replicant 2, all within the last few weeks. However, while Phosphor 2 might be the headline new release, it's not the only own; we also get FuzzPlus 3 :-) As the name might suggest, FuzzPlus 3 is a fuzz/distortion effect and, while … [Read more...]

Phosphor 2 released – Audio Damage add a synth to their iOS AU app catalogue

Audio Damage appear to be on a mission when it comes to iOS music apps at present. I've reviewed Rough Rider 2, Grind Distortion, Eos 2, Dubstation 2 and Replicant 2 all within the last few weeks. However, things don't seem to be slowing down just yet as now we have the release of Phosphor 2. Where as the apps listed above have all been audio processors/effects of one type or another, Phosphor 2 is Audio Damage's first iOS synth offering.  Again, it is a port of a desktop version that has, in … [Read more...]

Replicant 2 review – Audio Damage get creative with delay for their latest iOS AU port

Audio Damage are clearly on an iOS music app mission; Rough Rider 2, Grind Distortion, Eos 2 and Dubstation 2 have all appeared in very quick succession. Time for a short break over the summer? Er....  it doesn't look like it.... a further app appeared on the App Store yesterday.... This time we have a port of Replicant 2, their desktop plugin that is perhaps most easily described as a sort of 'creative delay/stutter' effect. As before, the iOS version apparently brings exactly the same … [Read more...]

Dubstation 2 review – Audio Damage continue to impress with their growing iOS AU app range

I've recently reviewed Rough Rider 2, Grind Distortion and Eos 2 by Audio Damage. The developer has been producing desktop music software/plugins for some time....  and building a good reputation for well-featured software sold at (for the desktop market at least) competitive prices. All three of the above iOS apps represent ports of desktop plugins to iOS. And, a couple of weeks ago, they released a further such port in Dubstation 2. As I've been peddling wildly on various other work fronts … [Read more...]

Dubstation 2 released – Audio Damage add a further iOS AU port to their growing catalogue

No sooner than I'd reviewed both Rough Rider 2, Grind Distortion and Eos 2 by Audio Damage then they release another iOS music app; Dubstation 2 (and with thanks to Music App Blog reader Justin for the heads-up on the app's arrival on the App Store). Audio Damage have built quite a reputation as creators of desktop plugins over the last few years and it's great to see the software being ported over to iOS...  and they are obviously on a bit of a roll :-) Dubstation 2 is yet another such port … [Read more...]

Eos 2 review – Audio Damage raise the bar for iOS algorithmic reverb

As I posted just before the week-end, no sooner than I'd reviewed both Rough Rider 2 and Grind Distortion by Audio Damage then they released another iOS music app; Eos 2. Audio Damage have built quite a reputation as creators of desktop plugins over the last few years and it's great to see the software being ported over to iOS...  and they are obviously on a bit of a roll :-) Eos 2 is a further such port and, in this case, we have an algorithmic reverb. The iOS version apparently brings … [Read more...]
