Songbirds relaxing music maker app
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , ,

Playful Music Creation from Pelican. Pelican 7 are developers of Lily [$1.99], which is another cross between an interactive musical game and a touchscreen musical instrument.

Create melodies and sequence notes with a very relaxing visual display. Unfortunately there is no support for Audiobus or IAA so getting audio from this app will take a bit of ingenuity. It does sound amazing so I hope to see some useful updates in the future.

Poly Generative Sequencer For iPad

Back in July of 2013 I reviewed a cool generative app called Poly on my Youtube channel. Several years later this fun and cool app has an update and it’s an important one!

Poly is a unique generative sequencer that harnesses the power of poly-rhythms to create intricate and exciting patterns.

Different coloured nodes are added to a circular area. The closer a node is to middle, the faster it repeats. Each node has its own sample, FX settings and keyboard. There are five available colours and up to 12 nodes maximum.

Poly comes with over 40 preset sounds, including a selection of awesome 808 samples

Other features include:

– Audiobus integration
– Audio Copy and Paste
– AudioShare file sharing
– Virtual / Hardware MIDI
– Saving and Loading of Patterns
– Recording of performances
– Dropbox upload and download

Soundbow Is Like Sound Thingie On Steroids
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , ,

Soundbow iOS

Anyone remember the Sound Thingie app? You would draw in lines and drop little balls to make sounds. Well there is a new app called SoundBow and it’s basically like Sound Thingie on steroids lol.

SoundBow for iPhone and iPad is a drawing based music instrument with a clean and simple visual interface. Create music by drawing curves over the screen. Your gesture will be remembered and played back continuously. Each time your ever-looping gesture hits a string, a sound is produced. Apart from drawing, you can experiment by moving the strings around freely to rescale your instrument. Record any sound through the microphone and start creating melodies, soundscapes with your own voice. If you wish, you can also export your composition as an audio file.

Soundbow

SoundBow is made with free and open source tools. The interface is built with OpenFrameworks, for accurate polyphonic sound sample playback, the sound engine is made with SodaLib, a free Data Sonification Library built on top of libPd (Pure Data).
