  • There are some very nice and lush reverbs on iOS, such as Pro-R inside Auria or Virsyn's AudioReverb, but to replicate all the functionality of a Big Sky you would need to pair them with additional modulations such as chorus effects, the Shimmer app, etc... And even then you won't be able to replicate the more esoteric modes on the Big Sky such as Chorale (don't know of any way to do that on iOS).

    If you just want a nice lush reverb, I would vote for the Virsyn app. Beyond that you would be looking at building a more complex FX chain in AUM or AB.

  • nothing gets all the way there imho, but there are some amazing delays and reverbs for super cheap:

    ^ good stuff. Yeah, there's probably not one app that covers all of the Big Sky but several apps can get you close to parts of it. I generally turn to AUFX: Space for 'huge'. Has some nice modulation controls.

    If you're specifically after their Shimmer magic, Holderness Media's "Crystalline" was created because he couldn't afford the Big Sky either. :) Sounds amazing.

  • Just thinking - with AUM you could just route the reverb signal through Virsyn's VoxSyn to get that chorale effect, route another instance for the the dry signal, and blend to taste. If you have Cubasis or Auria you could do the same by using a bus if recording. At least, I assume so.

  • Yeah love aum so far but definitely a difficult learning curve. Ive never really recorded anything before. so im learning it all at once lol. I just made a 7/8 drumtrack today in garage band because the metronome cant do 7/8 so lame.

    im on iphone so cant get auria. wish i could afford ipad but my next upgrade is my wifes old 7 lmao.

    So ill try out some cool verbs you advises. I got that flux fx kaos pad type app and its kinda cool but not really customizable like im looking for.

    so with aum i can make a cool combo of fx to simulate the big sky. now the trick would be making presets between the two apps and aum using maybe midi commands?

    Not sure. I know AUM does not support state saving, but midi commands seem unnecessary for this and I'm not sure how that would work. Could you just name the presets in all the apps the same thing for reference? Not a perfect solution I know...

    AUM supports statesaving of the AUs in the session. You can write notes in the notes section of any other apps settings in the preset. I like blending Virsyn Reverb and Amazing noises Reverb AUs on a mixbus.

    I didn't realize that about AUM. Thanks.

    well that wouldnt save the state of the other app. would never be able to use that for live switching on and off reverbs and stuff.
