What's New

We're very excited to offer this major free upgrade, including intelligent preset generation, two new effects, configurable FX signal flow, user-friendly additions to the preset system and more! This update also opens up Magellan as an FX processor you can use with Audiobus.

We also have two free patch banks that you can download by visiting our forum at www.yonac.com/forum. These banks are compatible with Magellan Jr. also, and use some of the new features. Check them out!

• Smart Preset Aggregation with Windowed raNdomization (SPAWN)
-- Uses specially designed artificial intelligence algorithms to generate new presets on-the-fly
-- Makes decisions based on the user-specified tonality parameters, such as Bass, Lead, Pad or "Weird"
-- Algorithms intelligently decide and generate over 100 synth-related parameters and over 80 FX-related parameters
-- Generates arp patterns in any chosen scale, or in a random scale
-- Uses "Surprise Me" option to give complete control to the system
-- Retains 16 most recent spawns in memory under the dedicated "Recent Spawns" bank

• Use Magellan as an effects processor in Audiobus connections!
• Two new free effects,
-- HEXEq: a very powerful and highly configurable 6-channel parametric equalizer with 9 filter types you can choose from for each channel, including shelving, peak, band and more.
-- VC-93 Compressor: a juicy compressor with built in I/O VU meters
• Change the FX signal flow via easy to use drag-n-drop interface. Allows you to experiment with any possible linear ordering.
• MIDI inlets for all the new features
• Master output meter with clipping indicators on the main panel
• Improved launch procedure
• Favorite presets bank to collect your preferred presets in a single place. Simply star or unstar a preset
to add or remove it from favorites.
• Recent presets banks
• Restore Factory Presets option, so you can reinstall factory presets without having to reinstall the whole app
• Various other improvements

App Description

*** ON SALE! Over 66% off for a very limited time!*** Magellan is the bold new professional analog modeling synthesizer for the iPad and iPad Mini.
