Audiobus: Use your music apps together.
What is Audiobus? — Audiobus is an award-winning music app for iPhone and iPad which lets you use your other music apps together. Chain effects on your favourite synth, run the output of apps or Audio Units into an app like GarageBand or Loopy, or select a different audio interface output for each app. Route MIDI between apps — drive a synth from a MIDI sequencer, or add an arpeggiator to your MIDI keyboard — or sync with your external MIDI gear. And control your entire setup from a MIDI controller.Download on the App Store
Audiobus is the app that makes the rest of your setup better.
Spidericemidas needs your help with Kronecker in AUM and other hosts
Hey all and @thesoundtestroom @reasOne @brice @craftycurate @echoopera @Tones4Christ @richardyot
I’ve just started working on a soundbank for IceGear’s Kronecker Synth, with the intention of sharing the finished bank eventually.
But I’ve just noticed something strange and unexpected happening to some of the patches once Kronecker is loaded into an AU host such as AUM and AB3, which I have never encountered before in any other synth I’ve used.
I always work on my patches with the synths in standalone mode, and when I eventually come to using them in AUM, all is well and the patches sound exactly as they did when originally programmed in standalone mode.
This is not the case with Kronecker, and I am totally stuck as to what is causing this and finding a solution.
I’ve included a link here to just one of the patches for Kronecker where this anomaly is seriously noticeable. If anyone here with Kronecker on their iPad fancies testing this out for me, or has any idea as to what is going on, it would be so appreciated. If I can’t find out what is going on and how to rectify it, the sounds are useless if they can only be played in standalone mode, and not worth releasing.
Once you get the patch (“Test9”) installed into your Kronecker, first just play the patch up and down the keyboard in standalone mode and familiarise yourself carefully with how it sounds and behaves. Then simply load Kronecker into AUM as an AU, re-select the patch from the library and play it in AUM either via AUM’s screen keyboard or external midi controller....What’s happened to the attack setting?! What’s happened to the envelope setting!? The patch behaves and sounds NOTHING like it should! Even adjusting the default AUM midi parameter (links itself to Emitter(A) filter) to the left of Kronecker in the slot, does not fix the problem. The patch is totally unrecognisable once loaded simply into AUM.
AB3 gives better results, closer-matched behaviour overall BUT I can still hear there is something very different as if a filter has been opened up more with a sharper attack sound.
What on Earth could be causing this? Am I missing something here? These patches will be useless if they don’t sound as they should once loaded into a host. My gut feeling is maybe it’s something to do with the way Kronecker’s Emitter works, as this is a very unique feature to Kronecker, and I have never ever encountered this strange behaviour in any other synth (and I make and test A LOT of presets in other synths!)
Does anyone know the IceGear tag here for reaching out to them about this technical query?
Any help or opinions very much appreciated! I need to understand and resolve this, otherwise there’s no point in continuing further with Kronecker. Cheers! 🤞😬🙏
