About TB Flowtones

Flowtones is a modern, unique-sounding virtual analog synthesizer with two parts featuring two analog-modelled voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs) each. Each oscillator has an extensive feature set including pulsewidth and ringmodulation, subharmonic synthesis, noise and unison synthesis and a wide range of modulation options. Over 30 analog-modelled VCF filter types, pro-grade effects including a best-in-class formant filter, low-frequency oscillators and envelope generators provide a colourful palette to create a wide range of sounds. Use the intelligent randomizer to create new and unique sounds instantly in addition to the hundreds of categorized presets provided.

True virtual analog synthesis features:

  • 4 VCO architecture (two voice layers with two VCOs each)
  • 4 synthesis engine types, in part modelled after famous analog synthesisers
  • 36 analog VCO waveforms featuring all classic waveforms and more
  • All VCO waveforms support pulse width modulation
  • Full stereo and mono unison modes for each VCO independently
  • Noise and subharmonic oscillators for each VCO
  • Unique ring and self-modulation matrix
  • High-quality, warm, non-linear filters (VCF) with over 30 filter types, including unique multi-resonance filters

Modulation features:

  • Four LFOs with 30 waveforms each
  • LFOs can modulate other LFOs, including themselves!
  • Three additional envelope generators, with key velocity modulation
  • Quick access to modulation strengths through context menus
  • Hundreds of modulation signal paths available
  • LFOs can produce noise as waveform to randomly modulate other parameters; for example to simulate slight variations in analog filter parameters as they happen in analog circuits

Pro-grade effects:

  • Studio-quality reverb, delay, and chorus effects
  • Unique formant filter to add vocal character
  • Analog and digital distortion / bit crushing effects
  • Master equaliser and peak limiter for final touch
  • Non-linear power supply simulation for authentic interaction between notes

Step sequencer:

  • Fully integrated, intuitive step sequencer
  • Can trigger chords and note series / phrases
  • Can run asynchronously or synchronously to the host
  • Smart copy/paste of note series to improve workflow
  • Smart zoom: edit fine details while keeping an overview over the full sequence

Presets and intelligent randomizer:

  • Flowtones comes with hundreds of presets to spark your creativity
  • Intelligent randomizer to explore endless sound synthesis possibilities

What you should know:

  • Inter-App Audio (IAA) can only use one instance of this app simultaneously. We recommend to use an AUv3 host to use multiple instances.
  • Licenses acquired for this platform are not compatible with other platforms.
  • Audio Unit (AUv3) extensions require an iPad mini 2, iPad 4 or later models.
