Walk to your nearest window, run your finger up and down the glass. That's how much it feels like a real fader. I have both an Artist Control and a iPad with VControl. For the most part, I only use the iPad when I'm editing/mixing on my remote system and am away from my Artist Control. If you already have an iPad, plonking down the $50 for V-Control Pro is ...

I use this semi-regularly, especially since I sold my Digi 002 a few months ago. Overall, I like using V-Control, but I do miss having physical faders. Without the feedback of touching a real fader, you sometimes have to take your eyes off the task at hand to make sure you touch the right area. Still, having the ability to control plugin GUIs by touching ...

I also use V-Control, although only in situations where my Mackie Control is out of reach. It's a bit silly when I phrase it this way, but I honestly bought it to be a surround panner, as hardware panners for pro tools start around $800. The depth of functionality is there, but the physical interface still doesn't completely click with me. The faders are ...

Ogg Vorbis doesn't suffer from much of the horriffic issues that occur with MP3, and generally produces smaller files. Hi Quality Voice Recorder will do what you want. If you need smaller, obviously gsm which is the encoding used for mobile phone calls should be suffficient, but there is less software compatible with this format.

I would start off by learning wwise. Audiokinetic has a lot of tutorials and sample projects available. Beyond that, I would download Unity or UE4 and start following tutorials on implementation. Knowing how game audio works and is implemented will help you begin to sound design for the game and the players experience. Further, when you are playing games, ...

There's no need for a second application to do this. Run AirDisplay on your iOS device and computer, and simply show the Quicktime window (and transport controls, if there's no one operating the computer for you) in your DAW on it as a 2nd (or 3rd, or Nth) screen.

I just downloaded an app called "Touch The Video"- Was a couple bucks, works very well for what I need. It allows you to add markers and gives you more control over the transport. I also love the ipad for recording foley in the field. I've got my ipad wirelessly transmitting guide track to my recorder, which makes it very easy to sync the recordings with ...

TL:DR You will not be able to do this in any meaningful way on a phone. I'm not sure what you mean by 'modulation recorded audio' [unless you're referring to PCM, pulse-code modulation] but you can change frequencies most simply by changing sampling rate for playback - in effect speed it up or slow it down. Alternatively, there are algorithms that can change ...

OK so I would tend to approach this with a number of different plugins and functions, typically using pitch and formant change, bit-crushing, modulation. I would tend not to want to approach this with a single plugin as it would be easier for the powers-that-be to be able to reverse-engineer the sound. If you are creating a unique approach to this it will be ...

There is a program called PhonoPaper made by a Russian group. It is essentially a graphical representation of sound that can be read by a camera and specific software. Quite cool, if somewhat novel. http://warmplace.ru/soft/phonopaper/ There is possibly some way of reading a sonograph image back into sound. Perhaps look into SSTV technology too which is ...

If you have no experience in sound design, I'd suggest buying a pre-made sample library. That way, you will have access to a library of sound effects for any future projects. You may be able to buy individual samples if you don't want to buy a whole library. You could search online for free samples, and I'm sure you would find something you like, but you ...

I think you have some options: Get a Windows tablet You can keep using the tools you know if your projects are simple enough for the hardware within your budget. Both Ableton Live and FL Studio licenses permit installing on multiple (2 for Ableton) devices, even cross-platform. It looks like currently a £300 Lenovo Yoga 2 11.6 2.16 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 500 GB ...

Frequency modulation is your friend. Hit a note on a keyboard and then do a frequency modulation sweep either up or down. Select instrument to your liking.

Know some developers. I don't know how most acquire their audio, but many use stock sounds, because they're cheap and easy to audition and download, or they may have a contact or they may just do the sounds themselves or they may seek someone from Google. But contacts to mobile app developers are surely a key. There's nothing technically surprising. Only ...

I agree with that V-control is not tackile, but still, it is a very good solution. It is the reason I haven't bought the artist series controllers. Tried them, but compared to the Icon, they are not as good, compared to the V-control, they are not that much better. Of course imho.

I must admit I am seriously considering selling my MC Control and buying an iPad with V-Control. I rarely use the faders on the MC Control and the plug-in implementation on the MC Control is not good. I too would value the opinions of people you are regularly using V-Control

If you haven't listened to it already, you might like to check out Episode Three of the Tonebenders podcast: http://www.tonebenders.net/tonebenders-episode-three-shaun-farley-and-valhallashimmer/ - there is some discussion on the merits of physical control surfaces vs touchscreens. The impression I got was that for riding faders, a physical fader still beats ...
