Melbourne, Australia (October 13, 2011) - Pattern & Noise is proud to announce the release of Omelet for iPhone and iPod touch. Omelet is an incredibly realistic percussion shaker, designed to be used live on stage, or in the studio. By using high-precision motion tracking, 3D physical modeling, granular synthesis and high-fidelity recorded samples, Omelet gives musicians an unprecedented level of control over tone and dynamics. For performing live, Omelet is not matched by any other percussion app available on the App Store, claim its makers.
However, what gives Omelet the edge over physical egg shakers are its built-in effects: Mu and Blue Room. These original, stomp-box style effects have been specially designed and tuned to work with Omelet’s broad-spectrum percussive sounds.
Mu is a unique resonating effect, capable of generating a diverse range of evocative sounds and textures. By generating multiple resonating tones simultaneously, Mu is able to produce a wide range of sounds from deep bassy drones to piercing highs. Its rich yet subtle timbres vary from scratchy, wood-like sounds to eerie metallic ringing sounds reminiscent of Tibetan singing bowls.
Blue Room is a reverb effect inspired by classic 60’s echo-chambers. It will simulate anything from tight corridors to huge cavernous spaces. The Schroeder-Moorer algorithm, with its simple and effective network of comb filters and all-pass filters, has been adopted to give Blue Room its distinctively retro character. Used sparingly, Blue Room can add a smoother, fuller finish to the shaker’s sounds; but with the gain turned right up, those sounds can develop into vast echoing soundscapes.
While these two effects can stand alone, they can also be used together - opening the door to many creative possibilities. This feature makes Omelet a truly versatile instrument.
