Ambient Drones For iPhone

Droneo will bathe your ears with rich polyphonic textures!

Droneo is a synthesizer which drones with various timbres and precise intonations that blur the distinction between tones, timbres and chords. Its drone is great for meditation, centering, and calming, walking and biking, but also can be set up for discordant noise and insect-like buzzing and chirping.

Skip to about 3:30 mins in for the sweet spot =)

With Droneo, you can create surprisingly rich, motion filled drones which change over time in a controlled way.
Quietly nested in your earbuds or blasted though your stack of amps, Droneo fills your droning needs!

Droneo uses 8 voices (“reeds”) which can be precisely and individually tuned, randomly detuned,
chorused, and modulated. The relative pitch and volume of each reed can be set individually, making for a wide variety of drones.
These “reeds” use various timbres suitable for drones, including vocal-like timbres and evolving, dynamically generated timbres.

The settings for all the intervals can be visualized and manipulated using
a special “Tone spiral” interface.

Droneo is also an excellent way to play with the way chords fuse into timbres — which is why there’s such a heavy emphasis on interval specification.
You can get a feel for how certain timbres fit “naturally” in certain frequency ranges, and how tunings and timbres and chords intertwine.

  • iPad Loops is a music app blog dedicated to exposing the best iPad apps for iOS musicians, producers, and Djs. This is not a database of every app. It is, however, one of useful recommendations from someone with many years in music production. I try to update it on a daily basis (ok sometimes every two days) and I do my best to post useful apps only. My name is Jason Donnelly (Dj Puzzle). You might know me from my royalty free loop packs and sound design. Some of the apps that contain my loops are Retronyms AudioCopy, LP-5, iPRO.DJSAMPLER, Looptastic, and Audio Elements. My work is published by Magix Soundtrack Loops, Sample Logic, Pakotec, Loopmasters, Acoustica, Xmix, Sound Trends, and many more.
