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...]

Cyclop updated – Sugar Bytes complete their iOS update set

As I posted a week or so ago, Sugar Bytes updated Turnado, Effectix, WOW Filterbox and Thesys recently.

Both of these tweaks are likely to mean smoother workflow when using these apps within your wider iOS music app environment. Today, an update have appeared for one of Sugar Bytes other flagship iOS music apps; Cyclop. … [Read more...]

Cyclop and Egoist updated – Sugar Bytes complete their iOS update set

Sugar Bytes have a bit of a cult following amongst desktop musicians.
