SoundZen HD For iPad
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , ,

SoundZen Icon

This popular iPhone app is now available for the iPad.

SoundZen is a new concept for music. It allows you to generate constantly evolving and changing music with no effort at all.

SoundZen uses a form of cellular logic to determine how your song evolves over time. It follows 2 simple principles:

1. When an arrow touches the edge of the grid, play a note.
2. If arrows collide they must turn 90 degrees for each arrow they collide with

You set up the app by touching any of the positions on the grid, touch it again to change direction and press play. Using the principles above, SoundZen will take you on a zen-like journey based on the input you gave. Sit back, relax and watch as your song changes right in front of you.

You can also save/load your songs and purchase new sounds from the store. After buying a new instrument you can change it by pressing the arrows above the instrument image.

SoundZen HD is available for $2.99

  • 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.
