Latest treats reviewed in Soundbytes!

Four reviews in the July issue of Soundbytes: 

Pictured above is Factory, a lovely new softsynth from Sugar Bytes, now also available for iPads (iOS 11+).  It's a lovely machine - very powerful, with lots of modulation possibilities.

And then Arturia has made an update of the classic EMS Synthi AKS.  Likewise, very powerful.  Everything old is suddenly new again! (And I'm very grateful to have lived long enough to see the "screen-i-zation" of so many favorite synths from the 60s and 70s making them available once again.

Here's a lovely new iPad or iPhone sequencer.  It's AUv3 format, which means that with the right host software (Audiobus, AUM, apeMatrix, Cubasis2) you can run multiple instances of it.  Lots of fun ways to play with control on this one.

And last but not least, here's a review of a new sample set from UVI - 10 vintage "piano modules" from the 80s and 90s.  Still sounding great (in fact probably better than ever thanks to UVI's meticulous sampling), and still extremely useful. And the price is a real bargain.

Enjoy!
