Extending JAX Essential Series (scheduled super universal releases)

We are extending our Essential Series with 4 new sophisticated items.

JAX Essential Series are for efficiency. Rather than using memory heavy UI toolkits, the interfaces are freely scalable vector drawing parametric editors, which use low memory footprint. The audio effects are of top notch quality, have unified parameters and everything can be assigned directly to MIDI controllers ( MIDI enabled audio effects – aumf ).

JAX Essential Series have the following key features :

  • ultra efficient with low memory footprint, made for stacking up
  • fully scalable to any screen size, based on vector drawing
  • freely MIDI assignable parameters and control
  • inbuilt preset management and factory sets
  • upwards compatible with older devices and iOS versions
  • available on all Apple Silicon platforms, iOS, iPadOS, macOS and visionOS with one release and price

If you are looking for more luxurious audio units, we prepared many new releases for our JAX ONE Series, superior audio units (3D, analog modelled) and the unique JAX SR (selective frequency range) series, with selected audio effects and extended functions.

The brand new items in the Essential Series scheduled are :

  • JAX Reverb, our answer to these numerous reverberation effects out there, our finest reverb with ultra long and lush dimension and freeze
  • JAX Delay, the flexible stereo delay with efficient sound control, which also can create ultra short comb filter alike effects or metallic spaces
  • JAX Squasher, our state of the art, ultra easy loudness squasher without latency
  • JAX Shaper, the multi mode wave shaping and saturation / drive effect for adding flavor, excitement and loudness perception

JAX ONE Series are using real 3D environments (pre-order release out)

We implemented zoom, movement and realtime lighting in our new series JAX ONE.

Therefore a new beta is in preparation and will be published soon available. Please note that our beta versions are subject of closing public access after a certain product introduction period.

The app was released in the Apple Appstore now for pre-order.

( The length of these introduction periods are sales dependent. If there is no ‘user support’, the prices usually will raise and/or the products may become discontinued. Sorry to say that, but we are not that kind ‘price drop bitches’ of developers. We deliver quality and continued service. If you are a price drop junky from the audiobus forum, waiting for the next giant monthly price drop, please search for other suppliers, because this won’t happen with us. ^^ )

JAX Triple Series : 3Verb (update 4.1)

We just uploaded the latest update for restoring parameters on load.

update 4.1

  • A problem with restoring parameters on load with some hosts was finally! solved. We implemented a double mechanism now for ensuring parameter restore upon unit load.
  • We corrected the appstore descriptions.
    Mac Catalyst versions (Intel) are no longer supported across our entire collection. Our plugins will support all modern Apple Silicon devices and platforms as long this is possible.

Special Message:

  • ❤️ We want to send BIG THANKS to all our supporting customers and fans. ( Even if this time is very hard for us keeping alive due to some so-called ‘communities’ and individuals actively and publicly ignoring, boycotting and continuing promoting damage where they even can. )

Thank you very much for using our software and actively supporting us!
We very much hope you will enjoy our work. And there is (much) more and exciting! to come.

JAX Triple Series : 3Verb ( super universal release scheduled )

We uploaded JAX 3Verb to the AppStore for review. The AudioUnit (AUv3) will be available the soon the app gets approved.

NOTE: It is HIGHLY recommended to read the embedded manual for the JAX 3Verb, just for understanding the concept!

The manual is available for download here :

We also recommend to try before buy. There is a public TestFlight beta available.

JAX ONE – Frequency Shifter Extended (scheduled super universal release)

From prototyping to release…

It’s obviously completely without any importance and/or interest what we are publishing.

The above picture is the 3D prototype, made with a 3D Modelling program. The below picture is the model loaded into the app with Apples frameworks. We think, the result is nice and can be shown.

Our new user interfaces for the JAX ONE series are all based on real 3D environments and will render all graphics in realtime. Rather than using stitched still images captured from parallel camera projection, the 3D views allow any projection and movement of lights and so on, although this may be limited for useful perspectives finally.

Because users of audio units are probably not able to navigate a 3D space with their sausage fingers precisely in conjunction with making music. Users always complained about our user interfaces, rather wanting Excel spreadsheets as user interfaces. ^^

However, we have a completely different philosophy and we always love trying out and experimenting with new solutions.

The first (closed) beta version integrates the Shifter module and the Delay module. The video demonstrates the possibilities alone with these two modules active. The entire signal flow is stereophonic!, note that the original Bode frequency shifter is basically just a mono effect, which can output 2 signals (for downshift and upshift). For the (possibly) public beta we will now integrate and connect the LFO and the Envelope Follower modules.

JAX ONE – Frequency Shifter Extended public beta (Apple TestFlight)

JAX ONE – Frequency Shifter Extended will be available as pre-order with an introduction price of 17,99 (regular price 24,99) and is available on all Apple Silicon platforms (iOS, iPadOS, macOS, visionOS).

The manual is available here :

JAX Essential Series : Frequency Shifter (announcement)

We built a new item for our Essential Series collection. The JAX Frequency Shifter, which is a stereo effect modelled after the famous Bode Frequency shifter ( was an analog mono effect for modular environments ).

A first frequency shifter for iOS is available since years with the release of our JAF Collection. This one here is real stereo and has the ability to separate lower and upper frequency parts with the ‘balance’ slider.

We will release more Essential Series effects soon. Including one of our best algorithmic reverberators.

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 Essential Series (super universal updates)

We updated all 3 currently available items in our Essential Series :

update version 1.8 (3080)

  • added new required privacy properties (for file management)
  • exchanged demo sounds
  • added new manual
  • a problem was fixed, which prevented proper file naming for user presets
  • a problem was fixed, where a preset did not restore the saved display contrast
  • the display contrast feature now can be automated
  • price structure for the JAX Essential Series readjusted
  • many new essential audio effects are scheduled for release to complete the JAX ESSENTIALS Series suite :
  • JAX Reverb, JAX Delay, JAX Limiter, JAX Colorizer
  • the entire series was prepared for a future user interface update (version 2)

The items are shipped to the AppStore for review and will be scheduled for release after approval.

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.
