You may have read about opening images in audio editors to glitch them out.
This article at Intelligent Machinery talks about how to use text editors and image editors to glitch out audio in different ways.
The same methods can of course be used in many image/text editors on Android to.
I did also have fun opening up non audio files in the SunVox sampler and got some interesting results out of it.
Yes it is almost going to be noise in one way or another but it can be useful and good for experimentation like slowing it down for example...
To read and listen:
So soon there is a need to pay for the web hosting and as usual I am totally broke!
Like having thirty euros for the next month to live on broke.
(Yes before getting addicted to art making consider a life in poverty young ones!)
So if there is any help you can send this way I appreciate it.
Guess this is good for any owner of this synthesizer app.

Do not know how many people are aware that there is a debate regarding tuning but there is a lot of arguments that says that to tune to 432hz is more harmonic. This not only musically but also said to harmonize your astral body and/or mental health.Have even seen videos claiming that Nazi germany decided on 440hz as the official frequency for tuning to disrupt us mentally and make us more prone to fear and anger.
Whatever your view is this video shows how easy it is to tune SunVox instruments to different frequencies. Remember that it is also possible to save the instruments for future use of course.
Also if you have nothing to do there is a big rabbit hole to go into through the internet regarding the subject...

Caustic Guide is a complementary app to Caustic. Have not taken time to use the Beta but will soon have to as it is already Release candidate version 5 and soon released.
People that did try it though seem to be pretty excited about it.
Here is what the developer says about it on the Caustic Forum:
Caustic Guide can;
The benefits of this app once you understand it only compound how powerful Caustic itself can be with sequencing and arranging. Caustic Guide allows you to share library items with others and build your own library of anything you can imagine.
I have basically broken up Caustic's file format into tiny pieces and allow you to save and reload at will all of those components
If interested in trying out the app right now go here:
Have mentioned this through the years and did an interview with the developer some time ago.
It is for free with no ads and well worth checking out as it is one of the more complete apps for Android when it comes to music making.
I am mentioning it again as it had a small update and I am happy to see that it is getting some attention still from the developer.
If you are used to for example Caustic my guess is that you would not change to vuKNOB but it is well worth to have in either case as it has a brilliant and very fun arpeggiator that can use any scale and very easy to change in X-Y pad style. Plus direct recording built in to export later.
Thee same developer also have another app that makes it possible to connect other devices together for jamming with other people over wifi.
P.S as the project is open source (C or C++) and the developer want other people to be involved as well.

Feel that this app do not get the attention it deserves.
It is strange that there is not more than fifty people that paid for the full version!
It has grown significantly since it first came. Also in the beginning it was highly unstable now it is stable and have a lot of functions that makes for the possiblitiy of very deep sound manipulations.
There are somethings that are not so obvious if not taking some time with it,
but it is pretty easy and fun to use after just an hour or so.
So recommend this for anyone that are into sound manipulation and experiments.
Happy to see it being updated regularly now (specially as hardly nobody paid for it since it came out over three years ago) and am curious in what will be added to it in the future as it already have some unique features.
Google Play info:

There is an interesting forum thread on the Audiobus forum right now (that I read about on the Caustic forum) comparing Korg Gadget to Caustic.
Even though it is regarding iOS I wanted to bring it up as Caustic gets out as the winner even though it is being much cheaper.
Plus that Korg Gadget is releasing the app on MAC's now and it is crazy expensive- 200$ introductory price then 300$! Yes Caustic for PC costs...
It is also nice to read a lot of good points about Caustic and one thing that always sticks out is that the Caustic developer is only one person doing something that is comparable to what a giant coperation is working on.
