There is some apps that are very interesting and good but that never seems to get the attention that they deserve... This one with less than a hundred installs are one of those.
The concept is good and well executed and the sound is mighty fine. The basic idea is that to manipulate and modulate the parameters selected by tilting the device in different ways.
Plus it comes with a sequencer.
Another mobile app that if coming out as hardware would have been mentioned and written about in many a big music sites/magazines.
So just forget all the unnecessary clutter of your device as the phone part and Facefuck and just have Fang synth installed and there you go, a new exciting hardware synthesizer that can do something no hardware synthesizer can do!
The look may seem crude but personally it entices my sensibilities to inspiration as do his other excellent and most brutal drum machine on Android, Dragon.
The new video does not do it full justice sound wise and does not show you that there is a whole lot of deepness to swim in, that can be slightly overwhelming before coming to grips with it.
Not too much though but enough to keep you occupied in sound sculpting and ideas for a loooong time.
Sequence can be changed from any page
Each step of a sequence can be triggered after the piano roll to allow for chord pads
Notes to the arpeggiator will wait for the next step instead of beginning timing at the first note on. Old behavior can be restored with the control named Independent time
Probability functions for pitch
New oscillator wave types
New presets viros, DSLIME, Carnival, sn, further down, wobble, and Hethodic
So there is a vote pack to download. Tried to finish a song but only got 80% of the way as I did keep shooting up on finish until last day... So sad face. But this year there seemed to have been a lot of contestants and there is Youtube video as well to hear all the contributions. Over three hours!!!
April 24 is the last voting day.
To get the vote pack in a fancy wrapper go here:
SO it has been out for awhile and I like it. Maybe not too much to get if you already have
G-Stomper Studio and are happy with that work flow. But if you have neither would say that both are great! There are many things that are unique. One thing that is interesting is the very versatile synthesizer and that it is possible to use the sampler built into the it (and instruments) in combination with the synthesizer engine and the other oscillator etc. Well in the end a sandbox of endless possibilities.
Waiting for some Specdrums to review. Meanwhile I will look at theses here vids.
Interested as fingerstyle guitar is what I am practicing and playing. It does not seem to be out yet tough. But there is a lot of other string based apps that the developer have released over the years so it should be at the Playstore anytime soon I guess?
Seems interesting. Comments are good and anyone interested in art and/or politics will probably find it interesting...Am installing it now.
It’s been nearly 10 years since Shepard Fairey’s last solo exhibition in his hometown of Los Angeles and the iconic HOPE imagery he created for then Presidential candidate Barack Obama. Now for the very first time Shepard Fairey's work has been transformed into a virtual reality experience. experience his most ambitious show to date, aptly titled DAMAGED.
In this unprecedented political climate, Fairey’s message has changed from hope to purpose: “DAMAGED is an honest diagnosis, but diagnosis is the first step to recognising and solving problems. "I definitely think that art can be part of the solution because it can inspire people to look at an issue they might otherwise ignore or reject.”
DAMAGED also takes aim at another hindrance to reformative communication: social media. For what should be the most meaningful platform for important discussion ever created, discourse has fallen secondary to self-indulgence and celebrity:
“Even prior to the election, I’ve been troubled by the social media mentality of ‘construct your own reality’ in superficial terms, at least. The internet and social media are valuable for democratization, but as Marshall McLuhan warned with his—”the medium is the message”—the rapid pace and temporary nature of social media can lead to throwaway approaches from the consumer and the creator…”
* Listen to over 100 minutes of exclusive narration by Shepard Fairey.
* Interact with hundreds of artworks, including world premier exclusives.
* A full three dimensional photo realistic representation of his Damaged show.
Join Shepard Fairey in this state of the art virtual reality experience, where he will share his thoughts and methods behind his artwork.
The optional Augmented Reality feature of the app involves image analysis, which requires a clear image. The AR quality is reduced when the camera can’t see details, such as when the camera is pointed at a blank wall, or when the room is too dark. Excessive motion reduces tracking quality as well.
Use the AR feature in a well lit room and move your device gently to improve tracking quality.
If having a device with a nice touch sensitive pen would highly recommend to get this paint program that does a nice job of imitating real paint amongst other things.
Have seen that he released a lot of instrument sampled for Caustic that he created before and seeing this video have an occasion to bring it up for us all. The video is in Spanish but the goodies are here:
Mmm forums always good for all kinds of things... Specially for learning.

These videos show some interesting ideas for using Specdrums and soon there I should be able to test them myself and will write a review as soon as possible and how and which apps they will work good with on Android. Think it is a brilliant idea and have fantasized some time now to paint some walls to use for playing music....
