AudioShare update – iOS audio document manager gets new iOS9 features

Jonatan Liljedahl will be well know to almost every iOS musician through his AUFX series audio effects apps and his AudioShare utility app. I've never got around to doing a full review of AudioShare here on the blog, but it is the kind of tool that an iOS musician doesn't realises how useful it is to have around until they have actually got it around :-) As the app's full title suggests - 'AudioShare - audio document manager' - the app provides a way of organising your various audio files up … [Read more...]

AudioShare update – iOS audio document manager gets new features

Jonatan Liljedahl is obviously a busy man. As well as updates to all is Kymatica-branded AUFX series audio effects apps appearing on the App Store over the last few days, one of his other apps - AudioShare - has also been updated. I've never got around to doing a full review of AudioShare here on the blog, but it is the kind of useful utility app that an iOS musician doesn't realises how useful it is to have around until they have actually got it around :-) As the app's full title suggests … [Read more...]

AUFX:Push review – Jonatan Liljedahl adds a comprehensive compressor app to the excellent Kymatica AUFX series

I’ve reviewed all the iOS music apps in the AUFX series previously here on the blog – Space, Dub and PeakQ – and all are brilliant. If you need an easy-to-use, effective and great value (each app is currently UKE£3.99) solution for reverb, delay or EQ under iOS, then these apps ought to be in your collection. The very straightforward interface design makes them a doddle to work with and, with both Audiobus and IAA support, they can easily be slotted into your recording projects using any of the … [Read more...]

Sector review – stochastic sample slice sequencer from Jonatan Liljedahl/Kymatica

OK, let’s start with the obvious question….  just what the heck is a stochastic sample slice sequencer? While it might be the kind of gizmo that finds its way on to a planetary geologist’s fantasy unmanned Mars rover, fortunately for us (well, unless you happen to be a geologist with an interest in other planets), in Sector’s case, it is a tool for manipulating audio loops. The ‘sample slice’ bit is straightforward enough; Sector allows you to take an audio loop an slice it into….  well….  … [Read more...]

AUFX:Dub music app updated – new features added to iOS delay effect app

A few weeks ago I reviewed Kymatica's AUFX:Dub music app - a dedicated delay effects processor app for iOS - and part of developer Jonatan Liljedahl's AUFX series of apps (which also features the excellent AUFX:Space). AUFX:Dub is brilliant, and if you are interested in building a collection of apps for iOS recording duties, then it is well deserving of a place in your app collection. It works well with Audiobus and can be configured with either Cubasis or Auria using the DIY send effects … [Read more...]

AUFX:Dub music app review – dedicated delay app for iOS

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get hold of Kymatica’s AUFX:Space music app – a dedicated reverb effect for iOS – and the first in the proposed AUFX series to be released by Kymatica’s Jonatan Liljedahl. AUFX:Space has already had one update with some new features (including a very useful bypass button) but Jonatan obviously likes to keep busy because we now also have the second app in the AUFX series; the AUFX:Dub music app (UK£2.49). AUFX:Dub is a dedicated delay effect. It includes … [Read more...]

AUFX:Space music app review – dedicated reverb app for iOS

The AUFX:Space music app is the first dedicated iOS reverb effect app I've reviewed for the blog. Produced by Kymatica, it is the first of a series of effects apps that are in development. While reverb and delay effects are built into many iOS music apps (DAWs, synths, guitar amp sims, etc.), as AUFX:Space's reason for being is reverb, it's perhaps worth considering some basics of effects like reverb and delay to set the review - which I'll come to asap below - into a broader context....  but … [Read more...]
