Svep is a Joy Division, a The cure and a Sister of Mercy. Euh, no, sorry, I restart… Svep is a chorus, flanger and phaser. 3 modulation effects used by my favourite bands when I was 15 years old… Hey, Don’t go! (Yazoo 1982). I know that for a lot of people these 3 effects sound eighties but no, not only… led Zeppelin used a lot of phazer on their drums, Lenny Kravitz too… Daft Punk uses a flanger effects in a lot of titles and a chorus is used by lot of artists and sound engineers even if you can not really listen to it. OK! Furthermore,, these 3 effects must be in the basic setup of all sound engineers and guitar players! Like a hammer for a carpenter! So, let’s go back to Svep now. The UI is great, the processed signal is perfect. You can use it as a Stand Alone App, anIAA, an Audiobus & an Audio Unit plugins… A link's switch allows you to work on the L & R channel independently. If not set, a mono to stereo fader is displayed. You know what, if I stop my review here, even if I say that Svep is a Killer App, a Must Have for all Sound Engineers & Guitar’s players, I am sure that some of you will say: I hate the Chorus, the Flanger and Phazer effects… so I will not say this now and will add something to this review. I told you that the UI was great… yes, with one slide (with one or two fingers) up, down left or right, you will no more remember that you are using a Chorus, a Flanger or a Phaser… and if you unlink the 2 channels… things become crazy… so much, that the developer has been clever enough to add 3 presets in the Preset library. a Chorus, a Flanger, and a Phaser to return to the basic: the Chorus, the Flanger, and the Phaser. Svep is a Killer App, a Must Have for Sound Engineers, Guitar Players, Sound Designers,… wait, the list is too long… A Must Have for all iOS musicians, and it’s Free!
