It seems that Audio Damage are on a complete roll in delivering new apps to the iOS world. Their latest app looks like something that’ll be of great use to a lot of people, and will also solve a problem that may have seemed too hard to fix for some time.
Here’s what Audio Damage says about Pumphouse:
What do you do when you need the sidechain pumping effect in an iOS DAW that doesn’t have sidechaining? Pumphouse to the rescue!
Pumphouse is a simple and excellent compressor (taken straight from our RoughRider 2 codebase) coupled with a step sequencer driving an envelope generator. In this manner, you can sidechain-compress your pads or bassline against a 1-measure pattern, no other inputs required.
With an easy-to-understand interface, Pumphouse is a quick method for getting That Sound.
Pumphouse requires transport information to work. Please note that some iOS AUv3 hosts do not have a transport. (At this time, Auria Pro that we’re aware of.) There is an Inter-App Audio version supplied, but it also requires transport info.
We have tested and approve the AUv3 with AudioBus 3, Cubasis, GarageBand, AUM, ModStep, Zmors Modular, and Beatmaker 3.
So Pumphouse joins Audio Damage’s growing line up of iOS apps. If you haven’t noticed them so far, here’s the current list.
And of course, last but by no means least, Pumphouse.
Pumphouse is available on the app store priced at $2.99:
