Sugar Bytes tells us that their vintage synth, Unique, is now available on the iPad and iPhone. They say that desktop users will be happy to hear that they gave the GUI a makeover and that NKS is also on the feature list now.
A spokesperson told us, "The mobile versions come with some charming goodies: fully-featured port and preset compatible, excellent connectivity options (Ableton Link, IAA, Audiobus) and with a tenacious bite. Enjoy!"
Here's a description direct from Sugar Bytes...
Unique was made for fun and vibes: Analogue sound, intense modulation and a killer set of features, delivering an amazing sonic spectrum that's full of character: Classy sounds, powerful, warm... sometimes gritty.
Each of the 2 oscillators offers a selection of 5 waveforms: sawtooth and pulse waves are here, along with noise, triple saw and triple FM waves. There's also an additional sub-oscillator strapped into the master section for added oomph.
The internal controllers will bring in the dynamics: an LFO and an envelope, there's a recordable XY field & a sequencer. Use these to modulate any knob – a simple long tap will do.
The sound springs to life when it hits the filter section. Needless to say, analogue high-pass, low-pass and band-pass varieties are in place, along with a comb filter.
Standards aside, the actual intention behind this project, the Vowel Filter, also became its outstanding feature: string together two or four vowel formants and play them back in a multitude of ways.
Once you've built your sound, there's tons of sound polish in two chained multi-effect units.
