Pattern & Noise Omelet
Pattern & Noise has released Omelet, a new App designed to turn the iPhone or iPod touch into a percussion shaker, designed to be used live on stage, or in the studio.
By using motion tracking, 3D physical modeling, granular synthesis and recorded samples, Omelet is designed to give musicians control over tone and dynamics.
Omelet features built-in effects: Mu and Blue Room. These stomp-box style effects have been specially designed and tuned to work with Omelet’s percussive sounds.
Mu is a resonating effect, capable of generating a range of sounds and textures. By generating multiple resonating tones simultaneously, Mu is able to produce a range of sounds from bassy drones to piercing highs. Its timbres vary from wood-like sounds to metallic ringing sounds reminiscent of Tibetan singing bowls.
Blue Room is a reverb effect inspired by classic 60’s echo-chambers. It will simulate various spaces from corridors to cavernous spaces. The Schroeder-Moorer algorithm, with its network of comb filters and all-pass filters, has been adopted to give Blue Room its retro character.
Other features include:
- Volume and mute controls.
- Two stomp box effects: Mu and Blue Room.
- Automatic locking to prevent accidental changes while playing.
- Multitasking support for jamming with your iPod.
- Two sample banks which automatically switch in and out: one to maximize volume while playing through the built-in speakers; the other with greater dynamic range while playing through the headphone jack.
Price: $1.99 from the App Store worldwide. Optimized for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch (3rd & 4th generation).
