WoodSynth v3.0 brings Updated Sequencer and More

Woodman’s Immaculate Maple Syrup Studio has released WoodSynth 3.0, a significant update of its multi-layer synthesizer for iOS and Mac, with a new sequencer UI and new sequencer functionality.

WoodSynth is available for iOS for $13.99 and for Mac for $44.99.

What’s new in WoodSynth 3.0:

New Sequencer functionality:

– Step “On” or “Skip” probability.

– Random note can now be set per step (was previously on/off for all steps).

– Random note probability per step.

– Random note range can be set per step.

– Ratcheting (repetition of same note in the step) per step.

– 9 ratcheting patterns provided (triplet, 4-sixteenths, 2-eights, etc).

– Different duration per step. (regular step time multiplied or divided by 2,3 or 4).

– Ratcheting probability per step.

– 4 sequence Variations (which can have different values for all step params).

– Variations can be selected manually, randomly or from a Playlist.

– Playlist allows to create 64 steps sequence or can be used for verse, chorus, etc.

– Variation glide for note values and volume : gradual transition between 2 Variations.

– Sub semitone allows for “strange” note values in a Variation glide or for random notes.

– Variation glide between notes can be limited to the selected scale.

– Variation glide and Sub Semitone can be set on/off per step.

– Added Envelope ADSR parameters per step.

– Added more scales to the random note Limit Scales. (Ionian, Minor Harmonic, Acoustic, Lydian, Dorian, Phrygian)

New Sequencer UI:

– New large panel with all 16 steps in 1 row.

– Added per step Mute/Skip button.

– New large Volume fader per step.

– Added on/off/skip Led and playing Led for each step.

– Volume curve can be drawn.

– Added “All Steps” button. (modifying a step parameter is set in all steps).

Smaller improvements and fixes:

– Touch bar lowest center note is now C1 (was C2)

– Floating panels (Sequencer, CV, 3D, Advanced) can be moved around

– Midi Out channel for Sequencer and Touch bar are now global and not part of a preset any longer.

– Delay now has its own Mod LFO (freeing up the general LFO’s).

– Stereo Out delay now only applied on delay and reverb (to avoid destroying center bass notes).

– Resizing the window does not toggle between the classic-expanded view any longer.

– Smaller iPads can now also toggle to the expanded view (overview …).

– Fixed a problem in the Copy Factory Presets (was sometimes duplicating presets).

– Fixed delay and reverb in 3D output.
