Mela is an intuitive virtual analog synthesizer and a multi-effects module with a streamlined interface. It can be loaded either as an instrument or effect plug-in (Mela FX) inside a host application such as AUM, BeatMaker, Cubasis and GarageBand.

Mela – Synth Audio Unit Extension (AUv3):

  • 4 great sounding oscillators.
  • 2 virtual analog style filters.
  • 3 envelopes with adjustable level, time and curve parameters.
  • Envelope modes: sustain, trigger and loop.
  • 3 tempo syncable LFOs.
  • Build-in effects: distortion, phaser, chorus, flanger and delay.
  • Fully featured modulation matrix.
  • Flexible signal routing options.
  • Voice modes: monophonic, polyphonic, legato and glide.
  • Built-in virtual musical keyboard.

Mela FX – Multi-FX Audio Unit Extension (AUv3):

  • Input section with pan and level controls.
  • 2 virtual analog style filters.
  • Effects: distortion, phaser, chorus, flanger and delay.
  • 3 tempo syncable LFOs.
  • Envelope follower with peak and RMS modes.
  • Follower can be driven by the audio unit's normal input or side chain.
  • Fully featured modulation matrix.
  • Flexible signal routing options.
  • Global section with dry, wet and bypass controls.


  • Standard selection of saw, sine, square and triangle waveforms.
  • Ability to morph between the waveforms or distort them using the shape parameter.
  • Modern phase distortion algorithm with an additional harmonics parameter.
  • Harmonics adjusts the richness of the generated waveform and modulating it sounds similar to filter sweeps.
  • Great sounding noise oscillator, which sounds warmer than pure white noise.
  • Other features: transposition, tuning, pan and level.


  • Selection of great sounding self-oscillating resonant filters.
  • Ability to morph between low-pass, band-pass and high-pass.

Modulation Matrix:

  • Both Mela and Mela FX come with a fully featured modulation matrix.
  • Most parameters of the audio units can be modulated.
  • Modulation sources: envelope generators, envelope follower and LFOs.
  • MIDI sources: velocity, key, mod wheel, aftertouch and pitch bend.
  • The matrix supports both positive and negative modulation intensities.


  • Oscillators can be routed to filters in 5 different ways.
  • FX section can be inserted before filter 1, after it or after both filters.

Audio Unit Extension Features:

  • Customisable perform view that gives you access to the parameters you care about most.
  • Highly flexible layout, makes the best use of the space provided by the host's window.
  • Preset management with import/export features.

Mela App:

  • Mela can be used by simply launching the app.
  • Supports all orientations on both iPhone and iPad, including split-screen on iPad.
  • It can respond to MIDI input from external sources.
  • Supports background audio.

Tip Jar:

  • Support the development of Mela by leaving a tip of any amount.
  • The Tip Jar is accessible via the app settings menu.
  • This is completely optional – the app is fully functional as is.
