  • Cool I owned the original was expecting a update to the app but this looks like a new beast totally, I’m cool with that.

  • Tried creating a project in standalone not showing up when I load as a AUv3 inside AUM not sure if I’m missing something or the 2 modes are totally separate?

  • Instabuy! Will try the app on my way to the office 🙂

    @stevebeast Yes appears to be £5.99 UK I didn’t have the original loaded on my iPad but don’t think that would make a difference. The original standalone and IAA version has disappeared from the App Store !

  • Nice demo.

    ok,thanks for the quick reply

  • Has anyone who’s got it yet found a way to sync the apps transport stop start etc to a hosts transport can’t find any options under settings?

  • Jumpercollins:

    "Start and Stop sync will be implemented later :)
    Now there are two ways:
    1) you can just send some MIDI notes to the synth, and the sonogram
    will play like a sample;
    2) there are the Play and Stop parameters - you can automate it or
    link to some MIDI controllers."

    @wako cheers yes just been talking to the dev online. He plans to add project sharing between standalone and AU also in the next update.

  • Nice, and Snuvox AU comes one step closer :)
    Great demo track too.

  • Just been chatting to the dev what a great guy. He confirmed this is a new app not a update so that’s why it’s been priced again. He even offered me a promo code. Said I was happy to support his work as brought earlier anyway. Hopefully SunVox next.

  • New @Nightradio 's Virtual ANS 3 as polyphonic sampler/resynthesizer now:)
    The only sampler I know that allows editing the spectrum of sound WHILE playing it!
    this is so so creative. put a chord on hold and edit your sound!:)

  • Sold (again) to help fund future dev, etc.

  • I was so happy to see this was in the pipeline and it more than meets with my expectations. The original was fun to experiment with but it's now so much more useful. I picked it up on the way to work though so I've only had ten minutes with it. Really looking forward to giving it thorough test tonight.

  • I love it, the original was fun but this is now a great production tool. :)
    It's quite intensive on cpu. For me in AUM anyway, will check AB3 and apeMatrix later

  • Very nice playground. Thanks for the app!

  • 2 videos by the maker (Alex):

    SNUvox <–– the new Alexander Z app ;)

  • I have loved this app since its release, such a great ethereal sound! I'm not usually thrilled about paying for an app again, but at only $5.99 it's no real skin off my back, especially considering how much I enjoyed it in the past and my respect for Alexander's work -- maybe this means Master Record will gain AUv3 support in the future? I'd re-buy that if needed!

    Master Record is from Igor Vasiliev. But that would be nice indeed!

    PFFFFFFF, you're right, lol.

  • Ahhhh this is almost getting to be ios’ version Of iris2 INSTABUY

  • Really great to see the new and improved version of ANS with AUv3 support.
