Alex Smith has introduced Sidpad – an 8-bit style chiptune synth for the iPad.

Features:

  • 3 Voice Synthesizer – Over 40 controllable parameters to create a wide range of 8 bit chip-tune sounds. All knobs are MIDI controllable.
  • Multimode Filter – includes Type, Cutoff, Resonance and customizable Cutoff Envelope
  • Flexible Modulation – Hand draw up to 4 graphs and assign them to the synth’s parameters to add movement and expression to your sound
  • Wavetable Editor – The 16 step wavetable editor lets you set up sound effects and arpeggiated melodies. You can sequence notes and waveform changes either as one shot or in a loop and vary the speed
  • Help Mode – Every feature is explained via the help button to get you up and running with SidPad regardless of your synthesizer experience.

VXXY DCM8 Looping & Stuttering

July 15, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The VXXY DCM8 Drum Machine offers a wealth of chiptune sounds ready to program and use for rhythm pattern & song. Still, during playback, you can loop 4 steps (shift+3), loop 2 steps (shift+4), hold beat (shift+5) or sidechaining audio output with stutter at playback speed with pattern env profile (shift 6). Nice!!!

The DCM8 is presented in a powder coated steel case with a CNC punched royal blue anodized aluminium front panel and white silk screen legend. The control layout has been designed to be compact and functional with eight main step editing and selection buttons, mode function buttons, an encoder knob for parameter adjustment and undo / redo buttons for ease of editing as well as live performance pattern modification. A 16 x 2 black & white negative LCD provides status information and menus for editing sounds and changing options.

A diverse range of chip tune sounds have been recreated by an old school programmer of commercial game sound engines from Gameboy and ZX Spectrum days, mixed with modern FM synthesis, digital filtering and adjustable DAC bit masking for manic distortion effects. Step sequencing also allows for pitch and decay parameters to be edited on a per step basis, and as the sounds are produced by formulas and micro-coded sequences this allows for greater sonic flexibility rather than just tweaking the pitch of a sample. Included is the ability to generate upto 32 custom sounds via a simple yet expressive editor and utilise the sounds within programmed sequences.

  • 64 Patterns in 8 banks of 8.
  • Selectable 8, 16 or 32 steps per pattern with half, normal and double speed timing scales.
  • Adjustable instrument volume, decay and pitch on per step basis.
  • Dual channel architecture with wide range of retro and unique preset sounds generated by a scripted synthesis engine.
  • 255 digitally synthesized chip sounds, consisting of 223 presets and 32 user generated patches.
  • 8 Levels of live undo on each pattern.
  • 8 Songs with 128 pattern selections.
  • Clear, Copy and Paste 8, 16 or 32 steps between patterns.
  • EEPROM based storage of all patterns and user data, with SYSEX backup.
  • MIDI input and output.
