Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Soniface is great for creating ambient music. Combine synth sounds, visual patterns & drum rhythms. Get on a sensual journey…

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.

LIVE MODE & SPECIAL VISUALS
Create different patterns to create songs. Add a special kaleidoscope visual to highlight a pattern.

FILE LIBRARY
You can store your creations in different ways. Collect single Mazes or whole sets and add them immediately. Add one set into another and extend your playing time.

Soundscaper Offers New Ways To Control Morphing
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

SoundScaperSoundScaper is an experimental sound mini lab for creating unusual soundscapes, atmospheric textures, drones, glitches and noises based on circuit bending principles.

With this application you can easily experiment with creating new and unusual sounds from ordinary samples. For sound designers and those interested in creating ambient or experimental electronic music, with filtering and mixing of up to three oscillators, you can create excellent soundscapes, textures and drones for your music or for movie soundtrack or entertainment apps and games. With complete MIDI control this application is very comfortable and powerful instrument to use for real-time sound creation and live improvisation.The oscillators, based on simulating schematics of actual 8 bit lofi sound playback chips, have circuit bending like controls that are ideal for making glitches, noises, crackles and granular sounds. Combined with the filtering and spatial mixing options, you can expand these sounds to deep and atmospheric textures. Finally you can add motion and continuous changes to your sounds via low frequency oscillators which can control the filter and mixer parameters.

The “Morphing scene” option gives you ability of smooth switching between scenes, applying multifunctional filters and changing oscillators parameters during morphing process. Using these features you can add a new dimension to the existing scenes varying them in the real time.

What’s inside:

soundscaper

  • Three sample-based oscillators with control based on circuit bending principles.
  • Three Low / High / Band – pass filters and two range delay for each oscillator.
  • Spatial mixer / reverb with side and distance for each sound source.
  • Three low frequency oscillators for automation mixer and filters.
  • Possibility of generating parameters for each oscillator randomly.
  • Scenes for storing all parameters of oscillators, filters and mixer.
  • Morphing with smooth changes scenes with additional effects in real-time.
  • Built-in library of natural samples grouped by categories.
  • Set of ready-to-use presets for oscillators.

 

Additional features:

  • Advanced control panel for all faders and rotary knobs.
  • Individual equalizer and reverb options for each sound source in the spatial mixer.
  • Complete MIDI control for all faders, knobs and most other elements.
  • Uploading samples through Dropbox, Web access, clipboard and from other apps.
  • Different color schemes available for the user interface.
  • Detailed application description (also in signle PDF).
  • Supports Audiobus with “State Saving” feature.
  • Inter-App audio compatible.

Requirements:

Fourth generation of iPad and higher is recommended (especially with Inter-app audio and Audiobus).

  • 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, Acoustica, Xmix, and many more. Subscribe to our RSS feed below to get updated when new apps are posted.
