Jasuto 1.5 Now Available!Jasuto v1.5
The worlds zaniest modular synthesizer, has been updated and now available in the Apple App Store!
Jasuto allows you to visually construct your own synths/effects and use them to make sequences all on your device!
Includes a fully-featured sampler to record/resample/edit as well as create entirely new samples by drawing right in the app.
Jasuto uses the relative position of nodes and their connections to control the sound. So the scene not only represents the synthesis structure, but also a custom multi-touch control surface.
Motion can be recorded per node giving you rich, flexible automation.
For a Quick Start Guide, further details on creating scenes and all of the astounding capabilities of Jasuto, check out the revised Manual.
Connections can be created automatically by simply dragging nodes around, or manually. Each wire can be double-tapped to allow even more control of each connection.
Jasuto comes installed with 60+ modules, as well as 200+ pre-loaded demo scenes and samples. Each of the modules, scenes and samples have been hand-optimized for your device's CPU, allowing you to create extremely complex and unique scenes.
High Fidelity is a new feature in Jasuto 1.5 as an In-App purchase.
With Hi-Fi activated you can listen to your scenes, patches and music creations in studio quality.
All samples, scenes and nodes have been updated to studio quality as well.
You can easily switch between Lo-Fi and Hi-Fi without leaving the app.
Note: this is an in-app purchase. You will be able to sample the Hi-Fi mode, but not record/save/share until purchased.
The keys module is used to send pitch, note-on/off, modulation signals into the scene.
Every port has 4 parameters that can be accessed in the node’s edit page by double tapping the node. You can also map the input/output ports for each node.
This is one area where Jasuto shines. All motion plays at audio rate as well, so you can essentially create an oscillator with any of the nodes.
This module is used to record sequences of notes and/or modulation. Each step is a 16th note and the overall tempo is controlled by the “tempo” slider.
The Sample Editor can be used to edit or share samples. You can also draw your own waveform.
Pressing “Spectra” brings up a spectragram of the final mix.
