[prMac.com] Waterloo, Canada - Monolith Interactive Inc. has announced the release of MONO2 Test Oscillator & Professional Audio Tool 1.0.1, their first professional audio application for iPhone and iPod touch.
CEO Simon Woodside said: "While no stranger to audio applications - having worked with one of the largest hearing aid manufacturers in the US to produce a medical-grade hearing test app - our new Test Oscillator app sets a new standard for audio applications on the iOS platform."
Test Oscillators have a multitude of uses within the professional realm of audio engineering and acoustic design. From testing and calibrating microphones, equalizers and preamps all require fine-tuning to optimize loudspeaker placement and eliminate resonant harmonics.
Monolith Interactive Inc.'s Test Oscillator features a high-precision frequency dial offering both fine-tune and coarse-tune algorithms, allowing users to dial in exact frequencies with ease. Waveforms include sine, square and a white noise generator, and users can program in two preset frequencies. A sweep function, which when actuated will sweep from a low frequency to a high frequency in a set amount of time - useful for finding resonant frequencies and isolating annoying rattles and buzzes within a listening environment
Swipe up on the main display with 2 fingers to access the app settings. Here, users can specify their own frequency presets, sweep low and high frequencies, sweep duration, sweep type (sine or ramp) and sweep cycle (on or off). Swipe down on this display with 2 fingers to return to the main display.
Clearly, a focus has been placed on audio precision, but Monolith Interactive Inc. is also delighted to offer what can be considered the most attractive audio application interface available.
