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...]

The potential of the format is obvious. The plugin is hosted within your DAW/sequencer (or other AU … [Read more...]

SilQ review – 32-band graphic equalizer iOS app from TonApp AS

Yes, this is going to be a review of SilQ, a new equalizer app from TonApp AS… but first, bear with me for a little bit of (hopefully useful) EQ background. When it comes to audio processing – whether for live sound or for use within a recording context – there are some key effects/processing options that every musician/mix engineer needs in the tool kit. Many of these are not the ‘ear candy’ creative sort of effects but more the everyday and every mix sort; just essential tools of the … [Read more...]
