It is for free and no ads!
Here is a video of the app and one of the hardware.
This is a limited affair but it is responsive and it has a lo-fi sound in a good way that inspired me. All the commands under the buttons are what can be accessed on the hardware synthesizer that the same people released but not on the app. Can change the wave forms in different combinations and change chord combinations by pressing note and chord buttons at the same time.

If using Pure Data I guess this must be a DAW that would be highly interesting!
I asked n-Track Studio if it would be integrated into the Android version of n-track Studio as well and it seems that there is a possibility!
That would be amazing as there is a lot of instruments and effects made already to be used even if there is no knowledge on how to use Pure Data.
Songtree is also implemented directly into the DAW which is enticing if you are a user of Songtree on Android.
To read more about this affordable and capable DAW go here:
The little that can be seen looks interesting. Guess it is a advanced sample/loop player of sorts?
Thought that I would have figured out a way to make the website profitable in some way the year passed but alas have still not figured out how to do it!
And being even broker now than a year ago I feel that it is necessary to ask for some donations to pay for the web hosting for another year...
So please if you have some spare change go to the PayPal button on the side and help me and the website out...
I feel weird asking for this but have no possibility to raise the money in any other way for now and have to pay for the next year in ten days...
I promise to put some tasty instruments for Caustic/G-Stomper/SunVox for download as a thank you! Have been doing some sound design recently as G-Stompers VA beast is going to have a crazy facelift in its next incarnation and this have led me to finally putting some great sounds for the beast together but also some sample instruments for Caustic and SunVox. Plus the possibility to download some of the instruments in SFZ format.
Also promise to start the Musical Android contests again.
The collaborative and interesting application Groovecloud now allows for sample import.
This will of course allow for a much more flexible user experience!
Their developer blog is a pretty interesting place to check out as well.
Think that this have been posted before but think that it is a good reminder...
So it is a search engine for sounds.
Here is the website-
But there is also an application but it costs money and it does not make much sense as you can as well just go to the website through your device... but it has one interesting function (that I have not tried...) and that is the possibilty to record a sound and it will try to find a similar sound. That sounds like a way to stumble across some new sounds that would not be found in other ways?
This will make sense to programmers.
If I understand it is a library to implement Pure Data using libpd and publish it on Android easier?
In either case go here and check it out:
Have not had time to listen to everything yet but everything I listen to sounds great!
The first beat he made is only six months ago!
Anyone making Hip Hop beats now have a big reason to look into G-Stomper as a way of producing on Android.
To hear all the beats go here:
These videos where something that I did a long time ago and always thought that with a little bit of work the same idea can be polished a little bit and so have a simple music video made.
The sound is directly from speakers into microphone on the telephone so it sounds like
caca-culo but the idea is the important thing in either case.
As SunVox is scalable both the screen and the modules in it, it is possible to get a close up of the animations in them. (Plus that one may choose different types of animation in the modules.)
Then filmed using the application Paper Camera and different filters.
So it is filmed directly from the screen which adds its own distortions and interest. Which for me is more interesting as it adds more grit and imperfection instead of making something in a computer.
Paper camera only renders its videos into Webm format so if a need arise to edit something together it is necessary to find a video converter as there seems to be hardly no video editors that allows for that format. But there is some converters to be found for free on the interwebs.
Thought that this was a good share.
Basically the idea is that Facebook, Weather apps, Antivirus and Cleaning apps are eating a lot of battery with Facebook being one of the worst offenders.
The article also gives tips how to still enjoy what these apps brings to the table without the expenditure of battery life...

This must be excellent for some musicians, not to have to worry about cables being in the way.

Now we just need Mr Nightradio to put his programming mind into it and make it into an adventure in sounds as well?
It is a pity they do not have a demo version as it seems that it is a little bit of a hit and miss when it comes to working properly depending on device...
Google Play info:
The infosphere, Visualized.Every time we use our phones, tablets or laptops we are entering an invisible world of wireless digital signals. It is a world that we cannot see but that is literally all around us.
The Architecture of Radio is a 360 degree data visualization of what this world might look like. It shows the cell towers, GPS satellites and Wi-Fi routers around you that allow us to live our digital lives.
"Fascinating and beautiful" – PCMag
"Enter The Matrix!" – Fast Company
"Both beautiful and slightly disturbing" – Business Insider
"the sight of this invisible world is breathtaking" – Gizmodo
"an entirely new lens through which to view the [reality] we have, but rely on every day." – Boston Globe
"Fascinating." – NYTimes.com
Why should I use this app?
Out of curiosity! We are increasingly dependent on a global ecosystem of digital signals. We use them for so many things, yet we cannot see them. We can see the roads we use to travel, the buildings we live in, but not the infrastructure that is changing the world. How can we understand this world without understanding how it works?
The purpose of this app is to make the invisible visible so we can look at it, think about it and discuss it.
Why Should I not use this app?
This app is not a measurement tool. It’s purpose is to inspire, to see the world through a different lens. The app is based on real world data and gives you a pretty good idea of the density of digital signals around you, but it won’t tell you where to move the couch to get a better WIFI signal.
So how does it work?
The Architecture of Radio is a data visualization, based on global open datasets of cell tower, Wi-Fi and satellite locations. Based on your GPS location the app shows a 360 degree visualization of signals around you. The dataset includes almost 7 million cell towers, 19 million Wi-Fi routers and hundreds of satellites.
Is this really what radio signals look like?
We can’t see radio with our eyes. The waves that we use for our cell phones and Wi-Fi are way outside the spectrum of visible light. In order to “see” radio, it has to be interpreted or translated into an image that we can see. There are many ways to do that but it will always be an interpretation.
The Architecture of Radio is an impression of the infosphere, a way of seeing it.
