Yonac Magellan Jr v2.2 iPhone iPod Touch
Powerful Virtual-Analog Synthesis
Magellan Jr's three analog-modeling oscillators, true PWM wave generation, dedicated osc unison module, and dual independent LFOs give it unique strengths and adaptability. In addition, Magellan Jr's FM module is an extra sound generator in itself so that no frequency goes uncharted. 

Magellan Jr has two dedicated filter slots able to receive any of the 11 unique filter types. You can run the filters in series, or in parallel and blend them to taste. Each slot has its own ADSR envelope, cutoff, resonance/Q and contour settings, as well as tracking and envelope curve selection.
Arps & Chords

Magellan Jr comes complete with a full-featured arpeggiator as well as a chordmaker. With 10 algorithms to choose from, as well as octave, repeat and gate settings and more, you can quickly program and perform arpeggios. You can turn on the Chordmaker and then play chords by touching a single key, and even program and save your own chord progressions.
Sequencer

Magellan Jr has a built-in polyphonic step sequencer influenced by revered analog boxes. With up to 8 note polyphony, 16 or 32 step programming, pattern bank, settable end step, step skip, note velocity and gate, as well as a performance friendly timelock feature, it is a comprehensive live performance tool. In addition, it has a programmable timeline for composing songs out of sequenced patterns, and a file import/export feature.
Keyboards & Expressive Touchpads

Magellan Jr includes dual traditional keyboards, as well as two touchpad controllers. The touchpads can be assigned a musical scale and a key for convenient onscreen performance. In addition, touchpads allow for individual voice parametrization for things like filter cutoff or voice volume. You can also configure the amount of glide when moving from step to step to anywhere between full note-snapping to completely free ribbon-like pitch control.
FX Rack

Magellan Jr comes with a comprehensive virtual FX rack that includes a multi-parameter reverb, BPM-syncable stereo delay, phaser, flanger, chorus, waveshaper, bitcrusher, and a sonic expander; all of which is processed in 32-bit floating point, as the rest of the audio.
Presets: Easy to Create & Share

Magellan Jr comes from the factory with over 300 presets, ranging from basses to pads to arpeggios. It includes two smashing banks of over 60 patches produced by Sunsine Audio. You can create, save and share limitless banks and presets of your own without hassle!
Modulation / LFOs

With its two independent LFOs, Magellan Jr provides an extensive "modulation matrix". Each LFO is able to receive up to 3 destinations, which you can conveniently assign from a list. LFOs have their own rate, phase and trigger-delay settings, 3 reset modes, as well as 9 waveforms to choose from, including random hard and soft types. Each destination has its own dedicated amplitude.
Powerful MIDI Implementation

With extensive CoreMIDI and Virtual MIDI capabilities, Magellan Jr can be controlled by your preferred external MIDI keyboard, your favorite vMIDI app or a MIDI Network Session. Conveniently program and control the Synth, Arp, FX or Sequencer modules. Audio backgrounding, MIDI I/O ports, MIDI Learn feature with 256 controllable parameters, and the ability to save your CC configuration are just some of Magellan's MIDI-friendly features.

Waldorf Nave 1.6.2 for iPad Waldorf Nave 1.6.2 for iPad
Soft / Mobile Applications 31-08-2015
Nave - next generation Wavetable Synthesis

Nave is Waldorf’s first synthesizer App development – created by chief engineer and 
director Stefan Stenzel, NLog mastermind Rolf Wöhrmann and Design Guru Axel Hartmann.

The Nave sound engine includes two novel Wavetable oscillators, leaving every previous attempt in wavetable synthesis far behind. The spectrum of a sound can be transposed independently of its pitch. The waves are being rendered periodically to noisy. Especially sounds with an accent on formants can be reproduced easily, which made us integrate a speech synthesizer for the easy creation of wavetables.

The clearly structured UI invites both beginners and advanced users to experiment, and the large display of 
the iPad makes Wavetable creation and editing a blast. Besides Speech Synthesis, Wavetables can also be made by analysing audio files. Further stretching, rotating and shifting in spectral domain allows Wavetables to be further refined or distorted.

All factory Wavetables from Microwave, Wave and Blofeld are included, complemented by new ones that make extensive useof the enhanced possibilities.

In addition to the Wavetable Oscillators, Nave offers an oscillator module featuring the novel Überwave that can fatten your sound by up to eight detuned oscillators.

The filter offers the familiar outstanding Waldorf sound, featuring lowpass, bandpass and highpass with either 12dB or 24dB slope.

The Drive section offers different characteristics, and it can be positioned in the signal path: before or after the filter, or as a summing overdrive before or after the equalizer - for those who prefer harsh screaming sounds over delicate Wavetable sweeps.

An extended modulation matrix and diverse real time control functionality is waiting for animating Nave sounds in any desired direction.

Besides the classic virtual chromatic keyboard, Nave can be played with the "Blades” that allow for dynamic triggering of polyphonic modulation by sliding the fingers in x or y direction.

The 4-track recorder can be used to build your own Nave songs or to simply sketch your music, inspired by the sounds of Nave.
