First look at iPad app Deregulator – using Thumbjam
A first go on deregulator the new iPad app by Ashshaosh Daa. The app is a delay/echo/reverb combo but with a twist…all components can be randomized to alter each/any setting over time.
the concept is very simple but in use it is a great way of creating mangled textures that recycle what you put in and spitit back out at you in new in interesting ways.
Deregulator it’s a mini-processor of stereo effects with Echo, Delay and Reverberator. Input signal goes to echo and delay simultaneously. Then delayed and echoed signal lands into reverberator. All parameters of this effects may be randomised at once and some key parameters can be randomised dynamically all time. On output we have wide effects range from simple mono echo/delay/reverb and combinations to near granulation live when remains of sounds create nebula around original input and like morning mist its blurring and smudging sound into scape of something new, vibrant and beautiful (degree of beautifulness depends on what you feed in D).
Delay just repeat sound pieces and size of every piece can be randomised, this chop and remix original sound into sometimes very glitchy, something new. Echo behaves like a usual echo unless you start randomising delay and feedback parameters. Reverb have three parameters, room size, damping and wetness of output. Off course all of them are randomisible. Randomising its a root of conception in this little app.
How it sounds like? Lets walk together to the border that splits effects from synthesisers where only granular with live input lives and question this line, she is exist? You must play with it or go to soundcloud(tag deregulator) for examples.
Go to look at instruction and detailed description on ckek.ru

+ Audiobus 2 and all slots
Tested on iPhone 4s(iOS 6&7), iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPad 2, iPad New and iPod touch 4. And i don’t recommend run this app on something lower then 4s. On iPod4 lag is too big, Deregulator need ~100mb ram and more power in heart. iPhone 4s/iPod5 is recommended as low line to work comfortably.
