Tutorial: Relaxation App Combo
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

I recently went to NAB in Vegas and my hotel was right off of Fremont street (downtown old Vegas). It was so noisy until about 3:30 am and I just could not sleep so I decided to have a bit of fun and create my own white noise ambient relaxation app combo. Ear plugs just didn’t work it was that bad. The white noise was inspired by my little 7 month old daughter we use white noise with her when she sleeps to drown out all the other noises like creaky floors helicopters, and police sirens (big city noises in Los Angeles). I thought to myself hey how can I create a fun white noise project in AUM on my iPad. I threw in a nice ambient melody generator for an additional relaxation element. The result, my “dream machine”. The following video shows you how you can make your very own “dream machine” hehehe

EXPLORATION & EXPRESSION
With Mazetools Soniface you can create various styles of electronic music. Based on common aspects of music production and notation the app guides you towards a visual music composition.

HOW THE GRID WORKS?
The framework of action is a grid that works audiovisual. Each line represents a single note. Shining lines are showing playing tones. Get information about all functions through an integrated manual.

X-Y CONTROLLERS & MULTI-TOUCH
Explore the circular editing interface with its sound and visual effects. Use of multi-touch gestures for altering them.

DYNAMIC SOUND MODULATION
Merge sound and geometric shapes! Draw freely with your finger circuits to modulate the sound wave. Do the same to create automation curves and let the sound effects vary.

RHYTHMICAL MELODIES
Explore the arpeggiator interface and let the grid play a sequence of notes automatically.

GROOVE DRUM SEQUENCER
Tap the drum steps into 3 circles to set bass drums, snares and hi-hats. Adjust each envelope, pitch and noise level and automate them afterwards.

Bansuri iPad sample

Today I recorded a couple notes from my Bansuri to my iPad. I ran the condenser mic through a tube pre and then through a Strymon Big Sky reverb. The file was then recorded and shared via iPad to Dropbox. You can download the sample here. Feel free to use it in your music!

Ambient Music Generator For iOS

Mobile Mood Machine (aka MoMoM ) is a brand new app by French IDM artist and programmer Julien Bayle aka Protofuse. Mobile Mood Machine provides a musical playground you can touch with your fingers.

Rules are really easy and minimalistic:
– touch the screen to create spherical creatures popping out sine waves sounds
– the more the touch is made at the top, the more the creatures pop out high pitched sounds
– the more the touch duration is, the more the sound popped it will have a long decay
– choose a Mood which consists in color gradient, sequences rules, scale
– choose to listen special designed soundscapes in the background or not
– adjust the delay and the effect of time over the age of those digital creatures
– enjoy !

Minimalism, Zen & Quietness are the main words that could describe this iOS application.

The Mobile Mood Machine ‘s engine works with circular buffers recording til 8 sequences represented by 8 colors.
Each sequence is repeated according to specific rules related to the current chosen Mood.
Some Moods are minor, some are major with a lot of time between sequence repetitions, some are hypnotically repetitive.

You can choose to make creatures becoming old. In that case, they will progressively disappear and their sounds will have a bigger attack til their end, when they will completely disappear.
Some Moods make them to be old faster, or slower.

You can also start it and choose the automatic induction mode of the Mobile Mood Machine
In that case, you just have to close your eyes, to let those waves envelope you into a sweet bubble of zen protection.
These sounds can cancel all annoying aggressive noises surrounding us every time.

Here are some possible uses:
– walking in the street
– being in the train
– trying to sleep
– before going to a boring meeting
– together with your loved one in relaxation or possibly romance

Mobile Mood Machine IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
