Magic Dice and Magic Switch

iOS / iPadOS users rejoice! Baby Audio has just released their two popular free plugins, Magic Switch and Magic Dice, as AUv3 plugins. This means that they can now be used with all AUv3-compatible DAWs on iOS and iPadOS devices. These handy little plugins are perfect for anyone who wants to add a bit of magic to their music.

Magic Switch is a powerful tool for creating instant variations in your sound. With just a few clicks, you can add echo, reverb, modulation, and more to your audio. Magic Dice is perfect for adding randomization to your sounds. Simply roll the dice and see what happens!

Both plugins are available for free download on the App Store. So what are you waiting for? Go and grab them now! And if you like what you hear, be sure to check out Baby Audio’s other products. They’re sure to take your music making to the next level!

Magic Dice

The BABY Audio award-winning Spaced Out plugin is used to generate the dice. It is a complimentary echo/delay, reverb, and modulation plugin. It’s completely random with every new click and creates strange and dreamy wet-FX textures, so you’ll never hear the same effect twice. Using it to to muddle alien modulation effects, hazy space echoes, and lush reverbs into the final sound is a great way to add personality.

Magic Dice

Every time you click, Magic Dice creates new and unique random echo/delay, reverb, and modulation settings. More than 50 distinct effects are built into the engine, providing an infinite number of possibilities. Pristine and modern-sounding algorithm – powered by BABY Audio’s Spaced Out plugin

Magic Switch

The Vintage Junos of the 1980s had a one-button chorus effect that was modeled after the classic Juno “one-button” chorus effects. Dark and out of tune, excellent for creating dimension, color, and depth to digital songs. To adjust the color, use the mix slider. The technology inside BABY Audio’s Super VHS 80s retro color plugin is utilized.

The Juno-chorus isn’t a complete copy of the original, but rather our own vision of the ideal one-button chorus for today’s DAW world, where clean sounds are simple to come by yet genuine color is difficult to achieve. The BABY Audio Super VHS plugin was used as a source for the Beautifully Detuned, Rich and Moody Filter in the Vintage Modulation section of the Viola presets. It’s gone farther than the Juno chorus in terms of vintage modulation.

IK Multimedia Releases SampleTron 2 for iPad 58

Ready for iOS 15 and designed to fit the form factor of the iPad screen, this comprehensive collection offers immediate support for all iPad model sizes and AU Host apps. The UI design is based on the desktop counterpart with a user-friendly approach that’s custom-tailored for mobile music production and performance on the iPad.

From gothic to gritty

SampleTron 2 for iPad comes with a vast library of over 400 “tracks” that can be loaded into any preset-up to 3 at once and then individually processed with IK’s cutting-edge tape modeling DSP for ultimate tone-shaping flexibility.

While an extensive collection of new, original samples of vintage Mellotron and Chamberlin are included, SampleTron 2 for iPad also shines where it processes non-Tron material. Here users will gain access to exciting new sounds with the choir, strings, brass, organ, piano, bass, and even synths and vocoders that all come included.

Authentic sound and feel

Sounding better than ever, SampleTron 2 for iPad looks the part with a gorgeous interface that’s true to the original instruments. All 11 models are gloriously detailed and designed to offer the immersive experience of using actual vintage gear right on an iPad, even to the point of exposing their inner workings, all while maintaining uniform ease of use and functionality across the board.

Unique to SampleTron

All controls are intuitive to use with old-school looks on top of some ground-breaking engineering. Like the original Mellotron hardware, there are three available tracks for each preset. Users can load any of the included tracks without having to fudge the track selector to combine them.

In addition to the included library, ‘Tron characteristics can be applied to any sound. User samples can now be easily loaded and mapped to take full advantage of the tape processing sound using IK’s tape modeling technology. A panel of global controls along with six tape controls let users dial in exactly the right mood.

Additional synthesizer-style controls include a filter with selectable type and an amplitude envelope with velocity control for each track individually or all tracks combined.

Effects like no other

SampleTron 2 for iPad includes a powerful set of effects. Effects include a Channel Strip equalizer and compressor, Tape Echo, Multimod-with selectable chorus, ensemble, flanger, phaser, Uni-V and Rotary Speaker-and the new Vintage Plate Reverb that’s based on the Plate algorithm developed for AmpliTube 5.
