3 Public Betas for JAX Selective Range [SR] released

We released 3 new public beta versions for our Selective Range Series:

The apps need to be approved by the Apple review teams. We will link the downloads (Apple TestFlight) as soon as available on our Beta Tests page.

Note: JAX Essential Series and JAX Selective Range Series use completely different models for the modiulation effects ‘Chorus’, ‘Flanger’ and ‘Phaser’.

JAX Selective Range [SR] : Reductor ( super universal update 3.3 )

We updated JAX [SR] Reductor to version 3.3 with following changes:

update 3.3

  • we fixed a problem with user preset naming
  • you can delete user presets by swiping to the left in the preset editor
  • the display contrast feature is now saved and restored with a preset
  • presets are XML text files and can be shared across all supported devices

If you find the concept of our Selective Frequency Range Series [SR] useful, please write us some words and your ideas and wishes for future releases.

JAX Selective Range (SR) : Airforce (announcement)

You should have been asked.

A selective range Mid/Side audio processor, which also can apply a sample delay to the side signal for phase shift and correction and other parameters for special stereo control and ‘airy’ effects.

So why ‘selective range’ ?
You may not want to apply the effects to the entire audio signal but merely to a selected frequency range, i.e to achieve ‘airy’ sound in high range or just remove mud and phase issues from a bass and so on….

How does it work ?
The stereo signal is split into 3 wide, overlapping frequency bands. Then the mid frequency range (the selected range) is processed by extracting mid and side signals and these 2 signals will be processed further, separately, with several options for stereo enhancements. This can be the entire frequency range too, of course.

The result is a more or less modified mid/side relation and tonal adjustment. The processing result can be applied in parallel, meaning the dry/wet mix will sum everything to the final output. A quick mono compatibility check is possible on the fly.

What is the result of a ‘side delay’ ?
Applying a delay to the side signal can produce the famous ‘air’ effect of some ancient analog gear and also eliminate bad phase summing effects. But this should be applied with some care, destined and sparingly.

Can I create new fancy and unheard cool effects with this ?
No.

The effects are more or less subtile and should be applied merely if you exactly know, what you are doing. This requires generally good audition abilities. (My experiences are rather, that most people are obviously just deaf and do not even recognize, if something sounds really problematic, awful or degraded and so on…
So this tool is for the ‘Tone Engineer type’ of audiophiles.

Is this a replacement for JAX Stereo Tool or JAX ┬žStereo ?
No. By no means. It does completely different things and can be used in conjunction with our other stereo tools and analyzers.

JAX Selective Range (SR) : Reductor (super universal release)

We want to announce the successor of our (discontinued) JAX Decimator : the JAX Selective Range [SR] Reductor. Super universal releases are available on iOS, iPadOS, visionOS and macOS (Apple Silicon).

Our selective range series audio processors apply effects to a selected frequency range, which gives much greater and more professional possibilities for creative sound manipulation.

JAX [SR] Reductor delivers parametric rate and bit reduction and a bi-directional resonance filter, which can excite the sound and add some decent character to all kind of audio and even entire mixes. It also can invert, boost and pan the selected frequency range.

The SR effects are like an entire new philosophy and a new way to extend classic effects for modern sound productions without the necessity for creating complicated multi-band mixing bus setups. All parameters feature assignable MIDI control.

Existing customers of our legacy JAX Decimator (purchased version) are entitled for getting a free promo code for the purchased app of the new JAX [SR] Reductor. Please contact us.

JAX Selective Range : Chorus (super universal release) – scheduled

The JAX Selective Range (SR) series feature band limited frequency range audio processors of all sorts. Especially modulation effects will profit from a limited range processing, because the final sound would not be altered in its entirety, but selectively. These effects are also applicable for post processing and mastering purposes.

JAX Selective Range : Flanger (super universal release) – scheduled

The JAX Selective Range (SR) series feature band limited frequency range audio processors of all sorts. Especially modulation effects will profit from a limited range processing, because the final sound would not be altered in its entirety, but selectively. These effects are also applicable for post processing and mastering purposes.

JAX Selective Range : Phaser (super universal release) – scheduled

The JAX Selective Range (SR) series feature band limited frequency range audio processors of all sorts. Especially modulation effects will profit from a limited range processing, because the final sound would not be altered in its entirety, but selectively. These effects are also applicable for post processing and mastering purposes.
