Strange Attractor App Review

Real-time Ambient Effects Processor For iPad

I decided to experiment with this app today and sadly I have been a bit let down. My plan was to use my iPad iO Dock as an audio interface so that I can send a stereo set of 1/4″ cables from a sound source (in this case a synth on my iPhone) into the iO Dock and then into the app Strange Attractor. The output from the iO Dock stereo pair of 1/4″ cables would then go into my mixer. Unfortunately this did not work. The app does not support audio input from the iO Dock. It only works with audio coming in through the headset mic or the internal microphone which means there is no way to get a stereo set of 1/4″ cables to a mixer and there is no way to get an isolated sound source into the app. I have sent the manufacturer a message with hopes that there is some kinda of setting that I’m missing but I kinda doubt it. I actually really like the sounds generated from this app and it has potential to be a really cool when used in a professional situation IMO if they fixed this issue.

Strange Attractor iPad App Review Set Up

Here is what iTunes says – Strange Attractor is a novel sound generator and effects processor based on chaos theory. At its heart is a feedback system which can spontaneously oscillate, or respond to incoming sounds, processing them into fractal sonic textures.

It generates a wide range of undulating sounds, controlled by touch, which slowly evolve in unpredictable ways. The sound is visualised as an ever-changing dynamic form.

Strange Attractor is available for $2.99
