E-Theremin

Vintage Electro–Theremin, Onassis Martino style synth. This app captures the magic of early classic slider controlled synthesisers such as the Ondes-Martenot (1928) Trautonium (1929) and Tannerin/electro-theremin (1950s) The E Theremin has three oscillators that generate a rich fat analogue tone, with a choice of 4 waveforms (saw, square, triangle and sine) octave shift and amp control. The E Theremin can achieve portamento, vibrato and quarter-tones with precise control. 4 presets allow you to store your sounds and jump quickly between them during performance.

Key Features

– Two oscillators – 5 waveforms
– New classic style theremin waveform
– 4 octave scrolling keyboard
– 4 octave slide control
– Reverb with 11 presets
– Delay (can preform endless loops)
– Fat analogue sound
– Retina GUI

History

In 1928 Maurice Martenot created one of the first electronic musical instruments, entitled; the Ondes-Martenot, the prerunner to the theremin, similar in sound but with a very different type of user interaction, an inspiring slider on a cord was used. Later in the 1950s Paul Tanner invented the Tannerin a.k.a. Electro Theremin. The Tannerin used the same slider controls as the Ondes-Martenot to control pitch. The Tannerin went on to play a large role in records such as The Beach Boys “Good Vibrations”.

E-Theremin MkII

Turning your iPad in to a classic sounding theremin.

The E-Theremin MkII translates the unique and distinctly eerie sound of the theremin onto a digital interface, allowing you to control pitch and volume on a x/y pad. A second x/y pad is provided for controlling vibrato. Additional controls are accessible for control of the waveform, band pass filter, and envelopes. Two DSP effects; reverb and delay let you take your sound to a whole new level. The reverb's room size can be set to small room all the way up to unearthly vast spaces.

1.2 introduces a 4 octave keyboards and two part polyphony (one part for X/Y pad, one part for keyboard).

Get the that classic sci-fi / horror sound!

Key Features

– 4 waveforms
– ADSR amp envelope
– BP Filter with Q
– X/Y Pad for pitch and amp control
– 2nd X/Y Pad for pitch modulation/vibrato
– New 4 octave Keyboard
– Audiobus 2.2.2 support

RS–08

8 oscillator ribbon mono synth with fine tunable chord memory.

The XYPad allows smooth pitch control and immediate jump to play back of 8 "Chord Slot"

Chord Slots are the saved, fine or corse oscillators pitches. RS-08 has 8 Chord Slots.

the XYPad allows instant call back of a Chord Slot making RS-08 a grate synth for playing one finger chords, or rich and dense cluster chords, or super saw like textures.

The XYPad combined with careful setup of "Chord Slot" and glide control can yield great Micropolyphony performances.

RS-08 is a unusual synthesizer loosely inspired by the compositions of György Ligeti.

Key Features

— 8 oscillators
— High Pass filter cutoff
— Resonant Low Pass Filter
— Amp ADSR
— LP AR
— On Board Effects; Chorus Reverb, Delay, Haas Spreader
— XYPad (Master Pitch on X, Chord Slot change on Y)
— 8 Waveforms
— Glide (like portamento)
— Stagger (delays the pitch change of each oscillator)
— 99 Patch Save Slots

Synth Automata

Synth Automata is an app designed for making Generative music.

Synth Automata achieves Algorithmic composition via the uses of an interactive Cellular Automata (Conway's Game of Life) as a tigger for notes. The user can select what scale the Automata maps to, The generated notes are then passed on to the synthesizer and onboard effects.

It was inspired my a talk given by Brian Eno and Will Wright.

Key Features

– 8x8 Cellular Automata
– 64 oscillators
– Ladder style resonant low-pass filter
– Onboard effects; reverb, delay
– Tempo control
– Programable scale
– AHD amp envelope
– 3 waveforms
– High-pass filter
– Made in Cornwall, UK
