Strange Agency Soup Granular

Strange Agency (makers of Curtis, MegaCurtis, and Donut) are back this time with Soup Granular a cool new granular audio manipulation tool.

Retro Future

Inspired by the oil can delays of the 60s and our previous granular explorations, Curtis™ and Spunk™, Soup brings you a virtual magnetic fluid that you can record onto, slosh around, and play back from. You can use it as a unique delay effect or more like a granular synthesizer, concocting your own wholly novel sounds.

Quantum Sound

Soup breaks up recordings into individual sound quanta with which you can interact as if they made up an audio fluid. They can be played linearly or randomly, forward, backward, or even sideways. They can, moreover, be stirred together, giving a whole new meaning to mixing sound.

Sounds Touching

Not only is this an extremely visual audio experience, it’s terrifically tactile as well. With support for multi-touch, Soup lets you get in there and mangle the fluid in a way that’s simply not possible with knobs and faders.

Audio Palette

Soup will let you literally paint with sound. You can record external sounds through the microphone or import WAV files, slathering sound over the virtual fluid. Then your fingers can become play heads, reading back the sounds from any position, or multiple positions at once.

HyperSpace 3D Synthesizer App

HyperSpace 3D Synthesizer App

The makers of some of our most favorite apps (MegaCurtis and Curtis Heavy) bring you HyperSpace. This is a waveform-sculpting 3-D oscilloscope synth.

HyperSpace uses a unique algorithm to generate endless mesmerizing images from sound. It works similarly to a harmonograph, but uses its 3 voice oscillators instead of pendulums to create images. Each oscillator is mapped to a dimension in 3-D space. Playing a single note creates a wave, like on an ordinary oscilloscope. Playing two notes at once creates a plane as with the harmonograph, and playing a three note chord creates a volume.

There are two oscillators to crossfade between. These can be set to standard shapes as with older synths, but HyperSpace also lets you sculpt the waves with touch! Changing the wave shapes of course alters the sound, but it also alters the generated imagery. The variety of imagery generated with this simple algorithm is truly astonishing.

HINT: check out the Application Settings for some rendering options: color/mono, trails on/off.

Features:
• Selectable keyboard scales for easier jams
• Fat keys option for fat fingers
• Three voice polyphony
• Two LFO modulators
• Lowpass filter effect
• Echo effect
• Audio Copy
• iTunes file sharing
• Works on iPad and iPhone 4s/4/3GS

HyperSpace 3D Synthesizer is only $0.99

Donut iPad App

Donut by Strange Agency

The Strange Agency is known for developing strange and unique audio apps. This iPad app is for recording and mangling sound loops.

You can use it like a phrase looper, by recording horizontally while using the step controls to step through vertical recording position. You can use it as a realtime processor by using ThruRecord mode. You can record and playback at completely differently speeds. You can even record backwards! You can record and playback diagonally across the Donut surface, creating glitchy staccato sounds. You can record and playback with multiple heads, recording or playing multiple positions at once. You can spread the heads vertically to access different portions of the Donut, or you can spread them horizontally to create an echo effect.
