Review by Ed
This is my "coup de cœur" of this month!
I love this App! I really really love it...
If you are an old Apps4idevices reader, you already know that I am the worst DJ of this Galaxy, and certainly of the others too.
If you are a new reader, you will know it, later, but not today, even if Stereosun was created for Djs...
Not today because Stereosun is so different. It's not a classical DJ App. Musicians can use it. Worse, it could even become the centerpiece of a composer who likes to work with loops ...
Stereosun comes with the Ableton Link feature, so it can play in sync with your DAW, Drum Machine, sequencer,...
On the center of the screen, the board. You can drop six Suns ( Audio files player) to this board. The Tempo of your Suns will be synced automatically. (Sync mode enabled. You can also change the Tempo of your loops with a swipe). Move a Sun to the top of the screen to set a higher level, to the bottom for a lower. On the both sides of the board, a Low and high pass filter. Drag a Sun on the left side (behind the vertical left line) to apply the low pass filter, on the right side, behind the vertical right line to apply the high filter.
Swipe from up to down on the top of the screen to reveal the Loop editor. For one Sun you can set 6 loops or Cue points. (Loop length: 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 bar). Swipe again to reveal the second editor page. Here, you can adjust the start and end point of your loop, change its pitch, pan, level and apply a 3 bands EQ.
From the board, if you swipe on the the left side from the Left to the right you will reveal the effects page.
8 effects: Reverb, Delay, Flanger, Whoosh, Gate, Roll, High Pass & Low Pass.
Drag them to the board and connect them to the desire Sun. You can connect all the Suns to the same effects if you like.
A Pad allows you to set 2 parameters for each of the effect.
In use, it's Top, because you can check easily and fast which loop can work with a track you are composing.
A Drum Loop, or instrument loop...
A DJ will be able to add loops, effects to his mix also and use the Auto play mode whichis so great too.
I will conclude this review as I started it:
Stereosun is my "coup de cœur" of November!
A Killer App, a Must Have!
Audio Unit and more in a future update?
More info soon...
