*** WARNING ***
Velvet Machine is an Audio Unit v3 plugin and requires a compatible host such as GarageBand, AUM, Cubasis, Audiobus etc. The provided standalone app does NOT support the currently deprecated Inter-App Audio.
Velvet Machine is a CPU-intensive effect at high settings. A *minimum* of 5th Gen iPad, iPhone 6s or 1st Gen iPhone SE is required to run a single instance at maximum settings. However, shorter times and/or lower densities use much less CPU.

Velvet Machine is a unique audio effect based on real-time convolution with enveloped velvet noise. It's designed to:
- Stretch and blur out even short sounds to lengths of up to 10 seconds
- Produce reverb-like textures with flexible volume envelope (including reverse, fading in and out, pulsating etc.)
- Work as a variable density random multi-tap delay (bordering on granular-like sounds)

PDF manual and video demos are available on developer website.

- Flexible volume envelope with arbitrary number of segments and curvature
- Effect time ranging from 50 ms to 10 s
- Response density adjustable from 1 to 2000 repeats per second
- Predelay up to 1 s
- Host tempo sync for time and predelay parameters
- High cut and low cut filters for the effected signal
- Mix adjustable from 100% dry to 100% wet
- Mix Lock to switch presets while keeping the dry/wet mix constant

What's new in version 1.2.0
- Time and Density controls will now turn red when the effect is silent, i.e. Time is set too low to fit even a single impulse at current Density (e.g. density of 1 ips and time less than 1 s, 2 ips and time less than 500 ms, etc.)
- Minor changes to the UI reflecting that we are now Phonolyth
