Analog Synth X powered by AudioKit 3 now available on the App Store

Analog Synth X

Matthew Fecher and I just released the Analog Synth X on the App Store!

The source code for this app comes with AudioKit of course, in the Examples/iOS Folder. We plan to make udpates to this app over time, have some tutorials, and also release more apps. AudioKit3 makes it pretty easy!

NAMM 2016

AudioKit at NAMM

NAMM 2016 is over and it was a whirlwind four days! We introduced hundreds of people and companies to AudioKit, demonstrated the SwiftSynth and a few apps still under development, and in general had a great time.

Four of us from the core team were there, in the photo from left to right: Stephane, Paul, Aure, and Jeff. The core team has quadrupled in size since last year so maybe next year we'll see 16 people at NAMM? I'll still buy everybody lunch even at that size!

The things that people were most impressed with were how quickly we were able to create SwiftSynth and the teaching potential of AudioKit playgrounds.

For next year, it would be great if AudioKit team members were asked to appear as Panelists for the Tech Track talks. With some notable exceptions, this year's tech talks were dominated by sales and marketing folk who didn't really understand technology at all. That would be my one complaint about NAMM this year, lack of substance and information.

Also for next year, I want to be able to have a suite of apps to show that use AudioKit 3. So, for all you app developers, let me remind you that core team is here to help you release that app. Let us know how we can help!

HOWL A formant synthesizer by Daniel Clelland released on App Store

Daniel Clelland just released his really beautiful new AudioKit app "HOWL: A Formant Synthesizer". Daniel describes it as follows:

HOWL is a simple vocoder/synthesizer for iOS. It uses formants to simulate the human voice and a pitch-space keyboard to help you find interesting melodies. But mostly it just makes synthetic grunting noises.

All we can add is that is has a wonderful UI and cool sounds!

Daniel is kind enough to provide his work not only as an app on the app store, but also as an open-source project on Github, plus he even has a nice web page for it:
