TAKE IT UP TO THE RED
With Sub Shredder you can finally pound your home or car sound system into sonic submission! Test the limits of your subwoofer! Punish your amplifier with unbridled sonic fury! Frighten your neighbors! Take it up to the RED!
I DON'T HEAR ANYTHING
Activate Sub Shredder by pressing one of the numbered buttons to select an output frequency. Drag the gain knob up or down to control volume.
Audio systems without an adequate woofer, like the speakers on your iPhone, cannot produce low frequency sounds at audible volumes. Subwoofers allow you to hear (AND FEEL) frequencies below 100 Hz. Sub Shredder is useless unless your phone is jacked into a serious sound system!
WATCH THE STACK
Stacking sine waves sums their amplitudes resulting in HUGE GAIN CHANGES. Be careful and select multiple test frequencies at LOW GAIN SETTINGS ONLY.
WATCH THE BEAT - OR - WHY IS THE NEEDLE DANCING?
When you combine sound waves of different frequencies, beats at a frequency determined by the difference of these frequencies are created. For example, adding 40 Hz to 45 Hz creates a 5 HZ tone. You just might see your subwoofer wiggle!
THE RED BUT NO FURTHER
When you hear the audio distorting, audio waves are being clipped. Clipped waves are square waves. Square waves eat speakers for breakfast. You have been warned.
What's New in Version 1.1
- soft saturation for a more analog-sounding distortion
- smoother gain control removes zipper noise when making rapid gain adjustments
This app is freakin amazing, i have a few suggestions to make it better.
1. Make it so people can enter in a custom Number of Hz to listen to.
2. Make it 99 cents, people will be more likely to buy it.
3. People should be able to make custom sound sets the would go on for a specific time and then change back to the original set for a type of beat.
PLEASE UPDATE SOMETIME!
Apps that are often updated with new thing sell very well!
But i definately recomend this app to anybody that loves bass, because this app should seriously be in the pocket of any true bass lover!
Perfect test instrument
I am a sound engineer and I needed an app to test the subs I installed into a club. This app was invaluable because it downloaded quickly and helped me find the resonant harmonic frequencies inherent to the room as well as setting my compression and crossover to maximize the low end in the system without blowing the gear or overheating the amps.
It's like an over clocking tool for sound systems!
One request... Specific Sweepable frequency selection with live RTA would make this a one stop room tuning app!!
Way cool app
Phenomenal Never thought I'd get anything like this on my iPhone satisfied this is by far the coolest app so far thank you so much. Keep up the good work one thing I do suggest maybe more tones maybe something you can dance to it is as advertised 100%
