Johnny is a highly versatile stereo multiwave tremolo effect designed for Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, perfect for adding everything from classic guitar amp style tremolo to pulsating, rhythmic multiwave modulation effects for guitar, synths, voice and more. Harmonic Tremolo modes create vintage phaser and univibe like tones, you can also modulate the rate of the main LFOs with a second LFO for interesting speed sweep effects.
In addition to Audiobus and Inter-App Audio, Johnny can process external hardware by connecting a professional USB audio interface such as the Apogee Jam or Apogee ONE, and many more compatible USB interfaces. You can also use the built in headset microphone. Guitarists can use the effects live by connecting the output of their audio interface to an amp.
Johnny supports USB MIDI interfaces via the Camera Connection kit, Bluetooth MIDI (iOS 8), Virtual MIDI and WiFi connections. The MIDI Learn function lets you easily assign your MIDI controller's knobs and sliders to control Johnny's effect parameters.

Ratings and Reviews
Typical Holderness quality...
I own every app that Chris Rice has released to this point and they all represent incredible value; whether you're buying them on sale or paying full price. Support this dev - he's got his finger on the pulse of iOS music development.
Minus one star for not adding to the bundle upon release
This is a solid fx app; all Holderness fx apps are great. My only complaint is not including this in the bundle. It would be a good reward for loyal customers such as myself who have already purchased all of the previous releases. As far as the sound goes, well, this is probably one of the better if not the best of the bunch. Crystalline is my other favorite and if you don't have it yet stop reading this and get it now - it is one of the few truly unique iOS effects that really enriches the sounds rather than flattening them to the point where it would hardly matter what the source sound is. This one is equally awesome and both would compliment each other well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
