Dropophone Free App By Lullatone

I stumbled across this app by chance. It was one of those “customers also bought” apps in the app store. I’m glad I found it though. It’s quite simple but that is what is appealing about it. Clean design. Very minimal. You will like this if you like groups who make music like Lullatone (which I am now a fan thanks to this app).

Create your own minimalist melodies with this exciting new app. Based on Lullatone’s album “Little Songs About Raindrops,” this app allows you to make songs that sound like drips and drops falling on a tiny orchestra of instruments. Pressing the multi-colored raindrops triggers notes that loop every six seconds. Combine different colored drops and notes to compose your own rainy-day melodic backdrops. A metronome is also included to help you keep time. This app is super simple on purpose. Simple is magic!

Dropophone is available for free

iDelirium Voice Effects For iPhone

iDelirium Voice App For iPhone and iPad

★iDELIRIUM, REMIX YOURSELF!★

Many instruments existed on earth since long time, the guitar, the piano, the drums and many others, and then iDELIRIUM arrived…

iDELIRIUM is a system of sound communication whose discovery has been made by two archeologists at the end of ’30s.

In 1938 two archeologist brothers discovered in Cerreto Guidi (Tuscany, Italy) four caves disposed in a triangular shape that were connected by a larger rectangular space. In the center of this area, there were laying giants monoliths made of an unknown metallic material. Some researchers made the hypothesis that this creation was made by Leonardo Da Vinci himself because of the vicinity with his hometown.

In 1979 the German archeologist Fredrick Schulz made further examinations of the site. He took a sample of this metal and sent it to a lab in Germany in order to get a precise date for the object. The results of C-14 tests were shocking, since they attributed the creation of the object to 5000 b.c. . The scientific community did not accept such a discovery and Dr. Schulz lost all his credibility to the point that he was forced to stop his research activity. In August 2011 the son of Dr Schulz, thanks to the generosity of an American millionaire believing in the existence of E.T. life, got new funds to continue his father’s research. In an evening of August while he was inspecting the caves he discovered an astonishing interaction between the feet pressure on the metal monoliths and his own voice propagation in the caves. By positioning his feet in well-determined positions he could control in an accurate way the echo of his voice on the rocks. The scientific community finally recognized the existence in this place of a communication sound system technically really advanced whose functioning and origin are still completely unknown.

iDELIRIUM is an app that reproduces in the most accurate possible way this incredible discovery. iDELIRIUM is a delirating alien instrument that allows to register and playback your own voice together with electronic sound effects and allucinating combinations of visual effects. The interface, that at first glance looks cryptic, it is in reality extremely easy-to-use.

The main features of the app are:

✔ Record/play your own voice together with preregistered electronic sounds by tapping colored buttons
✔ Start music loops at different speeds
✔ Handle the pitch and volume control of each sound
✔ Drum machine mode
✔ The creation of a rhythm is visually associated an hypnotic movement of colored squares.

Stay tuned and LISTEN TO YOURSELF!

★INSTRUCTIONS★
✔ Shake the device (Iphone) or use the central button (Ipad) to change between REC and PLAY mode
✔ One finger tap
– PLAY mode: play a sound on color buttons
– REC mode: start/stop sound recording on gray buttons
✔ Swipe up/down in play mode to accelerate/decelerate a loop
✔ Two finger tap in play mod to start a loop
✔ Long press
– PLAY mode: show volume and pitch shift controls
– REC mode: delete a sound
✔ Press corner buttons in play mode to access drum machine mode and bpm/pitch general controls

Bebot Synth For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , ,

Bebot iPhone and iPad App

Can’t believe I didn’t post this a long time ago. This is one of my all time favorite apps. All my friends have it and it is one of those apps that fit the “smart phones make people do dumb things” category =) It’s great for improvising, jammin out with your friends, whaling out a solo, and more. Djs, did I mention it’s also good for creating Dirty Dutch leads, blistering Mord Fustang-esque solos, and pitch ramp build ups? *hint**hint* Good on both iPhone and iPad!

What a great update for this app v 1.8. I didn’t know they cared =)

What’s new:

New sub-oscillator lets you make huge, more complex sounds.
Bebot is no longer affected by your device’s mute/silent settings.
More control over the overdrive distortion effect to provide greater versatility.
User-editable preset file format allows you to organize and share your library of sounds.
12 additional factory presets provide a variety of new sounds and demonstrate new features.

Part robot, Part synth – Bebot is a musical synthesizer with a unique multitouch control method and a versatile sound engine.

Featuring four different synthesis modes, juicy analog-sounding filters, effects and overdrive distortion, Bebot is a feature-packed polyphonic synthesizer, offering a wide range of sounds and a high degree of control via the multitouch screen.

Musicians and non-musicians alike will find that the autotune system and user-programmable scales help you to play in tune with ease. Don’t just listen to your iPod music – play along! Or simply have fun making noises with your fingers, and watch the animated robot sing along.

Bebot has been used both on-stage and in the studio by major recording artists, including Dream Theater and How To Destroy Angels. Not bad for a little cartoon robot!
