Sylo Synthesiser features live time-stretching technology

August 8, 2010 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Sylo Synthesizer is a free iPad synth that  lets you build sounds from basic waveforms, or capture them using the iPad’s built-in microphone.

Sylo Synthesiser features live time-stretching technology based on granular synthesis, and a suite of filters.

Options include:

  • Speed up or slow down a recorded sound to use as an instrument
  • With a regular wavetable synthesiser, higher-pitched notes are also faster, like chipmunks, and lower-pitched notes are also slower, as though they are moving through treacle, Enable “Sync Speed” feature, though, and lower or higher-pitched notes still play back at the same speed, keeping them in sync with each other
  • Adjust the speed control even while you’re playing notes: Slow, stop or even rewind the sound in the middle of notes — without changing the pitch
  • Granular synthesis allows you to create instruments or effects from a recording, that do not sound like the original, yet retain its realistic, natural sound
  • Frequency modulation, ring modulation, echo/delay, distortion, and a low-pass filter with resonance control are available

Sylo Synthesiser is a teaser for Sylo Synthesizer Pro, which adds these features:

  • Use existing audio files as the building-blocks of your instrument: import audio from wave, aiff, mp3 and aac/m4a files
  • Save recordings to your iPad or to Dropbox1 online storage
  • Save your new instruments to the preset list for fast acces
