Audio Convolution Filter That Belongs On Every Musician's iPhone
February 17, 2012 in Music
[prMac.com] Iowa City, Iowa - Independent designer Colin Ritchie of Periscope Audio Lab has announced the immediate availability of his app SpaceSampler - An audio convolution app that lets you record, apply filters from real acoustic spaces and equipment and then share with anyone. High quality audio convolution reverbs are used everyday in professional recording studios to give depth, color, clarity and uniqueness to audio. This technology now comes to iOS as SpaceSampler.
For musicians and non-musicians alike, SpaceSampler can be used with nothing more than an iPhone. Simply record audio via the built in microphone, use the resume-recording feature to stop and add more audio to the end of this recording, audition the impressive selection of 15 meticulously crafted Impulse Response Filters, set the mix via the big red knob and then save the audio. Saved audio can then be shared via e-mail, Dropbox, Soundcloud, copied to other compatible music apps or even loaded back into the sampler.
"I'm happy musicians and non-musicans can now take this fun studio tool wherever their travels may lead them" said developer Colin Ritchie.
The Filters - Start with this core set, then combine and set your mix for an infinite variety of tonal colors:
* Tape Echo: A classic old-school tape echo with a touch of spring reverb
* Glitchy: Unique delay pattern blips add a circuit-bent type sound
* Studio Vox: Smooth UK mic pre, EQ and a nice studio vocal booth
