Turnado is a revolutionary multi-effect tool, crafted especially for massive real-time audio manipulation. It combines unique and dynamic effects with the most intuitive and immediate control you can imagine. Just turn it on and crank it up.

Take it to the stage and unleash Turnado’s true power. With instant access to eight effects and immediate control over key parameters, Turnado is guaranteed to cause devastation on the dance floor, shredding beats and crunking breaks to insane proportions.

Features at a Glance:
- 4 XY-Pads to control 2 Effects simultaneously (X,Y)
- Integrated Player (iTunes File Sharing, Music Library, Factory Loops)
- Integrated Recorder (div. Optionen: Start/Stop/Sync/Länge)
- Live Modus (Inputs & Outputs selectable)
- Auria Plug-In
- Inter-App Audio support
- Audiobus support
- AudioCopy/AudioShare import
- AudioCopy/AudioShare/Soundcoud/Dropbox export
- Full Midi Support (Virtual, Network, Extern)
- Midi Clock Sync
- Zoom

The idea is simple:
Turn a knob and the effect is on.
Turn the knob further to adjust effect parameters and apply modulations.
Turn the knob down and the effect is off.

With its instantaneous, one-knob, multi-parameter modulation features, Turnado will lay waste to the audio landscape. Giving you the power to crunch, chop, twist, mash and elevate your music to new levels, Turnado will have you creating wicked new sounds that will blow any crowd away.

Unlocking the power of your MIDI controller each effect requires only one knob to control it. Underneath this simplicity lies a matrix of effect parameters and modulation engines, all controlled by the main knob. This control matrix provides serious depth to the plugin and gives you the ability to create original and truly unique effect programs.

If the power of one-knob action still doesn’t rock your boat, the awesome "Dictator" mode will sink your battleship. It allows you to animate all the main knobs and run that animation with just one fader. That’s one fader, controlling up to 8 different effects, with potentially hundreds of parameter changes!

Turnado’s primary focus is on beat manipulation, so you will find lots of loopers, slicers and grain tools in the rack. Alongside these beat-mashing effects are an arsenal of distortions and filters as well as first-class delays and reverbs. With extensive modulation possibilities each effect can produce millions of unbelievable variations that can be morphed and twisted into something new every time you tweak those knobs.
Turnado will inspire you again and again, delivering completely new variations of your original sounds and grooves every time, so what are you waiting for…turn it on.

Ratings and Reviews

Now with Ableton Link.


The very best multi-effect app. just got better..cherry on the cake. Don't even hesitate, buy it.

Still no audio units and iPhone support?


Would be 5 stars if I could use it as an audio unit within my iPhone... would sell more too if compatible with both.

Interface needs work, but undeniable power/variety


I purchased Turnado after it went on sale because it had been highly recommended by others to me, and the idea of a standalone effects processor to use in AudioBus was something I didn't have, but appealed to me. I also was interested to see what it could modifying a live guitar signal in AudioBus.

By and large, Turnado has not disappointed. There is a HUGE bank of effects options, and dozens of presets for each that ensure you can find a new sound every time. On my older device, I was actually pleasantly surprised it worked on a guitar signal without latency - though I've heard that this increases as you use more effects.

My one gripe with it is that for all the genius effects and sound quality offered by the app, the interface seems to be a lazy port of their PC plugins, without any significant thought as to how to make it usable on an iPad. The text is far too small, and the touchable areas are hard to locate. I also felt like there was a lot of wasted real estate on the screen. I'd like to see those concerns addressed in future updates because it frustrates users, and probably discourages potential users when you can barely even tell what's going on from the screenshot. Otherise, this is an excellent app that can do everything from classic reverb to stutter/dubstep.
