I just received this App last night.
A Drum expander.
My first impressions:
The sounds are great.
The quality of the Samples, Awesome! (Samples in 24 bit and 44.1 kHz)
The lengths of the Samples: Pro!
The number of instruments per preset... Top!
Up to 3-zone cymbals with choke function are supported! (HH includes)
Pedal HH for each preset!
Level & FX for each instrument (Check out the App Store description below)
MIDI Write & Learn
IAA & Audiobus (no AUv3 😂)
An integrated recorder
If you like natural Drum sound, (only one electronic preset),
BarbaXDrums looks awesome!
I already know that more sounds will be in the next update. More features too. (I don't know which ones)
Now all I have to do is try all this with a Sequencer to do my review.
If everything goes well, and I don't see any reason for it to go wrong,,,..

TB Reverb is the most complete of the Reverbs in the app Store.
As a result, the most versatile.
The quality is impeccable, the IU perfect....
The unbeatable price!
The most complete....
I never thought that one day I would make a video of more than half an hour on a reverb, and the worst thing is that I could have made one hour more...
When I received it and opened it, I immediately saw the Freeze switch... I was happy!
Then, the Shimmer.... So beautiful and easy to adjust....
Then I started playing with the most "Flashy" part of TB Reverb:
The LFO Tab.... Incredible!!!!!
Then the Gate Tab and her one "slaps"! La claque in French !
Then everything else, and all together....
I've been sweating this review for two days. I finished it there, now, and despite everything, I still feel a frustration... I still have a lot to do with it, to discover, to try on a lot of instruments....
TB Reverb, it's not a Reverb. It's a Reverb Channel Strip. It's a Multi Effects... "It's a Jewel!!!!

Fortamento is a Chords and Melodies generator.
The App is very simple.
You push a big button and Fortamento will generate a 4 bars melody with its 4 chords.
You will be able to edit this melody and to change the chords as well.
You can select a scale (Major or its Relative minor) and change the Tempo.
You can select one sound for the melody and another for the chords.
You can also send the MIDI out (2 channels, 1 for the Melody and one for the Chords to 2 other Apps).
Sure, you can save your melodies and share them as a MIDI file.
You can also ask Siri to generate a new melody and even to share it.
As I said Fortamento is a very simple App but I like this. I also like the generated melodies...
there is still a small thing that I would find nice to have in a future update: it is the possibility to lock the chords when you generate a melody ...
A Super little App!

Navigation between bars while in editing mode: We've added arrow buttons on the top of the editing screen, so you don't need to jump between main and editing screens when editing multiple bars. MIDI output "off" state: In previous version, active MIDI session was displayed in bold font. This was confusing to many, so there's a dedicated "off" state now. Fixed a bug when the first note would be slightly delayed. Other minor algorithm improvements and bug fixes.
An Exciter is more than just another "audio enhancer;" it actually extends your high frequencies for a greater perceived loudness without an introduction of noise into the audio path due to increased gain. Vocals and instruments leap out without raising individual volumes in the mix. It can even be used to simulate valve / transister based saturation or overdriven harmonic distortion.
I think you all know Aphex's Aural Exciter...
I have always been a big "fan" of this effect....
So useful during a Mix.
There are several reasons to use it.
The most common reason to use it, is to bring out an instrument in a mix. A mix with many tracks, or a mix with 2 instruments in the same frequencies range... (French Horn, Vocal,...)
To repair a sound: In the days of analog it was very useful. Today less, but we never know... An old tape, a cassette, a bad recording... A very soft, flat sound.... A little Exciter and you're done. (Unlike an Equalizer, an Exciter adds something that doesn't exist or no more or too little... )
Some 1st, 3rd, 5th harmonics etc. can reinforce a melody...
On the other hand, there is dissonance. 2nd, 4th, 6th, 6th etc.
By leveling up the odd ones you can also simulate a transistor Amp.
The third reason is to use it as an Audio input source of an effect.
I want for example, a very crystalline reverb on a guitar playing rather in the bass.
I send my guitar in an Aux on which I added an Exciter.
Behind my Reverb, mix 100 wet.
"The 4Pockets Harmonic Exciter allows you to visually see the incoming audio spectrum broken down into frequency bands so that you can immediately see any deficiencies in the mix. You can select a frequency range (whether bass, mid, high or even say a kick drum) and use the 10 harmonic sliders to dynamically synthesize additional harmonics and phase manipulation."
On the right is a Low & High Pass filter.
Use them to select the range frequencies you like to work with.
Once you have enabled the 12 harmics sliders and start playing with them depending on the effect you want.
Here again, the visual will help us a lot...
2 modes: Scope or Graphic with 3 different viewing options for each of the 2 modes.
An input and output knobs, a gain and a bypass.
A Boost switch is also present to add more saturation to your sound.
This effect is essential for a sound engineer.
This one is totally awesome.
The 12 sliders, the visual and the sound quality...
I love it! I love it!
A Killer App! A Must Have !

The App Store description
Harmonic Exciter is an AUv3 Compatible plugin for your favourite DAW such as Cubasis, Auria, AUM, Meteor, BM3 or GarageBand etc.
The main purpose of a Harmonic Exciter is to help instruments cut through a mix and give some edge and clarity to a sound by adding additional harmonics. It can even be used to simulate valve / transister based saturation or overdriven harmonic distortion.
How it works:
Every sound under the sun can be constructed by a series of sine waves, the root sine wave denotes the fundamental percieved frequency or the series of waves. By adding additional harmonics which are simply multiples of the fundamental frequency you can turn say a simple sine wave into a square or sawtooth wave. For those who know anything about synthesis you will know these complex waves pack more punch and brightness for the same volume level. So by adding additional harmonics we can lift a sound and make it appear louder, brighter and stand our in our mix. It can also be used to saturate say a bass frequency range boosting bass without needing additional EQ which simple boosts existing harmonics and oftern requires compression to keep under control. This makes the harmonic exciter a great tool for that perfect mix and a nifty trick audio engineers have been using for decades.
The 4Pockets Harmonic Exciter allows you to visually see the incoming audio spectrum broken down into frequency bands so that you can immediately see any deficiencies in the mix. You can select a frequency range (whether bass, mid, high or even say a kick drum) and use the 10 harmonic sliders to dynamically synthesize of additional harmonics and phase manipulation.
Generally it's the 'odd' harmonics that effect a mix in a more melodic way (1st, 3rd, 5th etc.), while even harmonics (2nd, 4th, 6th etc.) tend to be a little discordant or can be used to mimmic distortion of valve amps etc. When adding saturation in this way you can create simulate pleasing overdriven valve/transistor type amplification (transistor amps generally only apply odd harmonics).
Why is a Harmonic Exciter better than EQ:
While you can boost EQ using a Graphic or Parametric EQ, this only boosts existing harmonics which soon requires compression to avoid clipping. The Harmonic Exciter changes the tonal content of a sound to saturate without adding the same boost in volume. The result is more punch and an ability to cut through the mix without levels getting out of control. You can often get a more natural and aurally pleasing saturation from this kind of effect than using a dedicated oversdrive effects.
If your DAW supports MIDI based effects you can also control certain features via CC controllers or using the pitch bend and mod wheel (or CC's 20, 21 and 22 to control the exciter window, gain and size). Version 1.02 release notesFixed an issue which caused a potential crash when accessing the presets on iOS 10.
Blackhole is incredible!
Blackhole it is Eventide....
The dream of every musician....
Mine when I was very young and I couldn't afford to buy the effect of my dreams...
With its suite of 3 plugins, Blackhole, Micropitch and UtraTap Delay, Eventide had to make high quality products.
I mean a processing of an irreproachable quality....
And then, the objective is reached with flying colours.
For the UI, it's perfect. Even better than perfect.... That's great....
Fully adapted to our iDevices....
I love the preset library always visible on the left side.
As for the Ribbon....
Then there is everything else, but let's start with the usual parameters of a Reverb first.
A Bypass, 1 linear fader for input and output signal.
A Mix button, 1 shelving filter for the Low & High frequencies in the reverb tail.
A reverb size from small to "Epic"
Now always quite common parameters but which come here a little, see big more.
Now everything that is not usual to find in a reverb but that is great.
1 | the Modulation section with its Rate, Depth and Resonance parameters. Great! Great!
And to finish the great of the great!
1 Gravity. The equivalent of decay time, from inverse to cavernous.
2 The Ribbon.
Yes, there's a Ribbon down in Blackhole....
This Ribbon allows you to morph all the parameters you have previously selected and adjust from one position to another... That's totally awesome!
In addition, two switches on each side of this Ribbon allow you to switch directly from the minimum or maximum position you have determined to its opposite.
Monstrous especially since all the parameters can be automated or controlled via another App, an external keyboard or pedalboard...
To finish something else more than awesome....
In the video I use 12 Apps.
AUM, Fugue Machine, Toneboost EQ, Future Drummer, Pure Synth® Platinum, iFretless Bass, Ruismaker, Fac Maxima and 4 instances of Atom.
Plus 8 Blackhole instances!!!!!
Blackhole is totally versatile, incredibly creative, of impeccable quality at every level (I wonder why an update would be released, as it is so perfect and study)
This is the Reverb to have...
Blackhole is perfect!

You can also delete User Presets by sliding the preset to the left, and clicking the 'x' that appears.
Ribbon: Allows the dynamic modification of several knobs at once. By programming left and right ranges for any knob, the Ribbon lets you morph between settings by tapping anywhere on the Ribbon and moving the electric arc back and forth.
To program settings for the Ribbon, press the button on the left or right side of the Ribbon, and then move each knob to its desired Ribbon position for that side. A blue arc will be drawn between the left and right Ribbonvalues for the knob, with a white dot representing the left value and a blue dot representing the right value.
The Ribbon programming can be cleared by moving the dots to be on top of each other, while in programming mode.

Create out of this world ambiance with Blackhole, a reverb effect as big as the cosmos. Blackhole breaks the rules by allowing you to create virtual spaces that could never exist in reality. At large sizes, its soft attack and lingering, harmonic tails allow it to really shine on guitars, strings, vocals and pads. At small sizes those very same qualities can add an angelic sheen to vocals or turn a simple drum track into an otherworldly rhythm section.
- Incredibly easy to use with over 80 presets; many created by Eventide artists.
- Ability to create extremely musical effects useful for highlighting key instruments.
- Supernatural settings for abstract spatial effects and drones.
- Subtle settings for ambient washes and track highlighting.
- Unique “Gravity” control reverses the arrow of time by inverting the reverb's decay.
- Innovative Ribbon and Hotswitch allow for changing any combination of parameters simultaneously.
- Fully flexible mono and stereo options. Bring new realms of stereo imaging to mono instruments.
- Mixlock allows for scrolling through presets or settings while keeping the wet/dry mix constant.
- Available as an Audio Units AUv3 plug-in, Inter-App Audio, and Standalone App.

There, it's said....
Now let's go back in time, almost 2 months before when I received this App.
(In this review, I'm going to do something I never do... Talk about other Apps...)
So two months ago, I received Velocity Keyboard. Shortly before I had received, KB-1 from Kai Aras...
To tell you the truth, it confused my mind a little bit because I never read an App Store description, nor do I read or look at a review from another blogger... I know I repeat myself, but I must say this for those who have not read another of my reviews. If I do this, it is to remain objective and free of my creativity when I test an App...
So I was saying that KB-1 had confused my mind...
KB-1 is great, it's a great utility, no, an essential utility for us iOS Musicians, an essential App...
And I, as, a fool, wanted to compare, thinking that Velocity Keyboard was also a utility...
What a mistake!!!!!!!!
Velocity Keyboard is an App made to play....
To give life....
Excuse me again, but I'm going to talk about another App...
This App is so watchful and always so great that I still use it when I want to play, or rather make it look like I recorded a real instrument...
Well, with Velocity Keyboard, I can do that with any instrument of any App!
Look, the video....
Look also at the Tuto below....
It's really great....
In the video, I control the sensitivity note of SyntMaster Player...
At the same time I control, the Retro Dist / Drive parameter of GeoShred.... Yes, from Geoshred, this great App with its keyboard...
Well, believed it or not, it's even more awesome if you use Velocity Keyboard!!!!!
It took me a while to understand the usefulness of this App...
It would take me thousands of years to get rid of it......

Velocity Keyboard is a powerful velocity-sensitive MPE compatible MIDI controller.
- unique velocity sensing algorithm that tracks touch force like no other app
- Four interface layouts: Keyboard, String, Scale, and Drum Pad
- runs as an Audio Unit or as a standalone app
- 8 simultaneous sources of MIDI CC parameter control: touch area, touch force (on devices that support 3D Touch), touch Y-coordinate, velocity to CC and up to four MIDI CC control knobs
- smooth MIDI pitch bending between notes in both string and keyboard layouts
- highlight custom scales in any key
- dedicated MIDI modes for maximum flexibility when controlling non-MPE compatible synthesizers
- pitch bend correction algorithm plays more in-tune with more freedom of expression when bending between notes (compared to similar MIDI controller apps)
- can output velocity as a MIDI CC or aftertouch message to better support synths that aren't designed with velocity sensing in mind
What does this app do differently from our iFretless apps?
- It uses much less RAM because it doesn't load any audio samples
- It has MIDI aftertouch controls, so changes in touch pressure and location that occur after after the start of a note can control MIDI CC parameters
- It supports highlighting notes in custom scales
- It has piano keyboard, scale, and drum pad layout options
- It has updated velocity sensing and pitch correction algorithms
- It has better visibility, making it feel more playable on smaller screens, or with a larger number of rows and columns Version 1.2.6 release notes- fix bug that cause y-coordinate can not be deactivated - add rating function to AU3, now user can rate the app in both AU3 and standalone version.
SynthMaster is awesome...
It's the perfect synthesizer for the non synthesizer players I mean for the ones who don't really know how to use a Synth, to shape a sound...

Chord AI uses recent advances in AI to give you the chords of any song automatically. You won't need anymore to look for the chords of a song on the web.
Chord AI works offline. You don't need to have an internet connection unless you want to play a song from YouTube or a streaming service.
Chord AI currently recognizes all major and minor chords. Recognition of rare chords such as seventh, ninth, augmented, diminished chords etc. will be available in later updates. Please be patient :)
Chord AI can find the chords of a song in two ways:
1) Through your device microphone. Any song playing around you, or played by your device, and the chords of the song are shown in real time. You can go back in time and replay the song together with the chord displayed on a timeline.
2) For audio files that you have on your device or iCloud, Chord AI will process the file in a few seconds to give you all the chords of the song at once
Regarding the In-App Purchase: You will be able to use Chord AI for free for a few minutes each day, which is probably enough for many users. After the limit is reached within a day you may be asked to buy the in-app purchase, which will give unlimited use. This is not a subscription, you just need to pay once for a lifetime.

Turbosounds for Accordion provides many special sounds of the Oberkrainer folk music. Mostly legendary vintage instruments were recorded, such as the Framus AZ-10, Framus Texan, Hohner Morino VM, or the Zupan Alpe III.
Instruments can be played simultaneously via MIDI on all channels. All popular MIDI systems are supported, and the outstanding guitar chord samples can be used even by earlier systems without sample channel (3-channel systems).
Not only can the instrumets be played in the app, but they are also available as Audio Unit app extension for use in host apps. Tested with GarageBand, Steinberg Cubasis, and AUM.
The instrument packs are available as In-App Purchase and can be purchased separately as desired. A starter pack is available free of charge which can be used immediately to try all functions.
*** Should you miss a function or encounter wrong behavior, please do inform us via app support, Facebook, or email. We gladly help you on your way! -- Ois isi, Gruaß Reini :-) ***
