Rymdigare
a little bit more space
rymd = space
Rymd is swedish for space. Just like the english word space, rymd can mean a volume, but also refer to that big thing up there, past the sky.
During a routine mining expedition in the outer regions of the galaxy five mysterious boxes of unknown origin were found.
Rumours among the workers spread quickly that there was a strange feeling being around these boxes, as if time flows in a different way, not just forward but sometimes also folding back on itself. The miners nicknamed them, the five boxes of reverberation.
After the excavation process, to study them more closely, it was decided to transport them back to earth.

About

Rymdigare is part reverb, part noise and drone machine, part quality degrader and part wave shaper. The reverb is built from 5 reverberation boxes where you can control the sound with length and ratio parameters, tail and weight skew parameters and an internal feedback parameter, that could be used to create swelling tails. There is also a built in octave shifter, resonant filter, speed and level degrader and 4 LFO sources for modulating a selected set of parameters, including the LFO speeds themselves. The app can run stand-alone, connecting to other apps through Inter App Audio or AudioBus or it can run as an AUv3 plugin. Map and control any parameter with MIDI using Core MIDI, Bluetooth MIDI, Inter App Audio MIDI or AUv3 MIDI.

More Info

  • Microphone: enable/disable input.
  • Wet: control for the amount of dry and wet signal.
  • Filter cut-off: frequency between 50-20kHz.
  • Filter resonance: Q value for filter.
  • Filter Type: low, band or high pass.
  • Radio volume: volume of noise.
  • Band: controls rate of change.
  • Antenna angle: quality of signal level.
  • Time dilation compensation: more or less time consistency.
  • Tone tracker range: lock the noise into tuned notes.
  • Hold keys: keep keys pressed or release.


  • Note: the radio acts as a kind of noise and drone machine. Everything starts with random values, and the tone tracker can be used to tune buffers of noise into tones.
  • Waveshaper input gain: add some distortion and saturation to the sound.
  • Output gain: limits the output and allows to bring down high levels from the input gain.
  • Reverberator size: sets the size of the largest of the 5 boxes.
  • Ratio: the other 4 boxes are scaled based on this value.
  • Weight skew: skews the focus of the sound to smallest to largest box.
  • Tail: a parameter for how much sound is fed back into the loop.
  • Feedback: this value can create a more normal reverb response to a more swelling sound.
  • Quantized: allows freeform, boxes tuned to BPM or tuned to notes.
  • Fluctuation amount: add a bit of change to box sizes.
  • Time: controls the time of that change.
  • Variation: adds a bit of randomness.
  • Octave down: shifts the sound an octave down.
  • Buffer size: control the buffer size used for the pitch shift.
  • Octave up: shifts the sound an octave up.
  • Planetary orbit: 4 planetary orbits that act as a LFO.


  • Note: speed of the planets are measured in seconds per orbital period.
  • Orbit: select 1 of 4 orbits to modulate the parameter.
  • Modulation amount: the amount on modulation to apply between -100% to 100%.


  • Note: to open this view doutble tap on the control you want to add LFO to. Even planetary orbits themselves can be modulated.
