During a routine mining expedition in the outer regions of the galaxy five mysterious boxes of unknown origin were found. Rumours among the workers spread quickly that there was a strange feeling being around these boxes, as if time flows in a different way, not just forward but sometimes also folding back on itself. The miners nicknamed them, the five boxes of reverberation. After the excavation process, to study them more closely, it was decided to transport them back to earth.
Rymdigare is part reverb, part noise and drone machine, part quality degrader and part wave shaper. The reverb is built from 5 reverberation boxes where you can control the sound with length and ratio parameters, tail and weight skew parameters and an internal feedback parameter, that could be used to create swelling tails. There is also a built in octave shifter, resonant filter, speed and level degrader and 4 LFO sources for modulating a selected set of parameters, including the LFO speeds themselves. The app can run stand-alone, connecting to other apps through Inter App Audio or AudioBus or it can run as an AUv3 plugin. Map and control any parameter with MIDI using Core MIDI, Bluetooth MIDI, Inter App Audio MIDI or AUv3 MIDI.
+ Resonant filter (low, band or high pass)
+ Noise and drone machine
+ Level and speed degrader
+ Wave shaper (input and output gain)
+ Reverb (length, ratio, skew, tail, feedback and type: free, bpm, tuned)
+ Reverb random variation controls
+ Octave shifter up and down
+ Planet orbits (LFO: double tap on parameter controls to map)
+ Inter App Audio, AudioBus and AUv3
+ Map Midi CC using Core MIDI, Bluetooth MIDI, IAA Midi or AUv3 MIDI.
+++ Exposing user presets to AUv3 host.
+++ Minor UI tweaks.
Ratings and Reviews
Slight departure from the UI style.
Hmmm…. Really cool sounds and endless possibilities, especially considering that you can use multiple instances of the AUV3.
What I wanted to say is ironic: when I first stumbled upon the other apps by this developer (Shapesynth, Nils, Elsa, etc.) I could not get used to the minimalistic interface. Particularly the low contrast of the UI elements was bothering me. I’ve since got used to it and really enjoy using it (still would love the ability to tweak the contrast for situations where it is hard to see the interface). The interface of the Rymdigare looks different, it is much more “normal” than the rest of the developer’s apps…ironically I wish it stayed true to the other apps’ aesthetic. Particularly the rotary knobs feel out of place.
Having said that, this is easily a 5 star app!
What a Gift
I've been writing music for over 25 years, and I've found the articles/instruments you come to rely on are usually best served in their simplest forms. However, once in a while, a rare while, an instrument (in this case an app) comes along with a sonic capacity and production quality to throw all that "simple is better" hippie crap out the window. The Developer has created a treasure here, worth far more than the $4.99 listed. And, it's fun- small suppressing features pop up, like narrated story lines, unique features and the beautiful look of the app. Incredible.
If there’s anyway of changing the sections so they’re accessed through tabs/buttons instead of scrolling it’d be great. It’s easy to miss the target or accidentally turn a knob in the current version, especially on an iPhone.
Also: the knobs seem to have some sort of delay or momentum that make them hard to tweak precisely.
I’d say that on both aspects the other apps of this developer are just perfect, as a point of reference.
