This can be fun for getting some unpredictable but good ideas going...
Got a serious Beatles Number nine vibe to some of the things.
The video by Soundtestroom are using the iOS version so some of the things shown are not of importance for the Android version.
Fluxly is a new type of sonic game, a musical physics looper.
Fluxly is a musical electronic sampling synthesizer where you create new instrument scenes by moving and spinning colorful Fluxum sound sample players. A built-in 2D physics engine brings a whole new approach to knob twiddling and sound making.
You can choose from a bank of built-in sound samples, or record your own samples and play them back in either direction at any speed. By touching two Fluxum and pushing them together you can link them into looping gear train machines. You can also enable movement and let the physics engine take over as the Fluxum bounce around the instrument for random sonic fun.
Recording can be done right in the app, and sample loops can be up to about 10 seconds long. You can also customize all of the sounds in Bank 1 by using filesharing features of your phone or tabley to upload any sound samples from your computer.
Fluxly was created by artist Shawn Wallace, who is also part of the Fluxama art collective that has created the apps Noisemusick and DR-OM. Fluxly is open source software and was built using openFrameworks, Box2d, libPd and Pure Data. See more at fluxly.com.
Always get excited when things are modular.
This is a new concept as it does not use a tradtional sequencer but reads the modules loaded with a sample/synthesizer in the order they are in the chain.
So think that it can lead to happy accidents and to think a little bit more non-linear.
It is as is a little bit basic with not too much choice in modules but it looks like it can be expanded in all kinds of directions depending on the will of the creator.
It also records sound, making it a fun thing to use for enviromental sound collages.
It is for free and does not come with adverts.
Cool with a small new modular addition to the Android universe and if expanded futurewise can be something mighty interesting...
This music composition app lets you record sounds anytime and anywhere with your phone. You can arrange them in a graph-based scoring layout to create intriguing compositions.
Instead of starting with a cluttered interface narrowing your inspiration at the moment you open the app, the Pocket Composer starts with a blank white canvas, ready for your imagination.
- 16 track polyphony
- record sounds
- import .wav from SD-card
- synthesizer module
- audio fx: ringmodulator, delay, filters
- save and export to SD-card, share via e-mail, bluetooth, google drive, ...
This is a gem and discovered it on Friday and yesterday starting to record beautiful noise.
It is made for more noisy happiness but there can be some melodic things coming out of it as well.
There are no clear controls but buttons to push and activate two oscillators and a whole lot of parameters underneath it all. Which you can use to spawn variations plus that there is two more windows that can be used to further affect the chosen patch.
Then there is things like a up to 30 seconds of sounds shifting from one patch to another...
Actually it is much better to try the free version instead of me talking about it or if you like some useful noise just buy it straight up for just one money.
Trust me it is worth it.
It is easy to use but to get the most of it is recommended to read the manual...
Really like this app and think that the developers made a wise choice in making something that would be very complex to build up with every control available to something more fun and exploratory without sacrificing the results in the process...
Will work more with it today having fantasized for some time now about doing more noise oriented pop songs and was going to use Noise Machine as a basis but with MendelTone as a second application there can be some serious damage made.
They complement each other beautifully having very different vibes but still keeping in the noise domain.
And yes there is no record so to fully compose with it, something to record into is a good idea...
I am using SunVox on PC for this project which with the SunVox sampler/s is working out real fine.
If you make any music with MendelTon, please let me know...
MendelTone is a portable sound evolution app. The MendelTone synthesizer is a virtual modular synth optimized for mobile platforms, and features a flexible patch topology with basic modules such as oscillators and delays.
Using a proprietary variant of the genetic algorithm based loosely on the work of Charles Darwin and Gregor Mendel, this app allows you to search the space of possible synth tones using preferential selection and patch breeding, and hear the results in real time.
is A little bit of time ago wrote about an app that took wifi signals and translated to music sequences.
Well looking around for some choir apps the other day stumbled across this one. It is the same idea but with a
much nicer execution and instead of grungy chiptune noises it using female voices.
It is for free and ad free and looks pretty nice.
Can not be used for too much music wise though, but it is fun to have installed like the other app to directly illustrate how saturated or clean our airwaves are...
Feel that myself and I have been out of commision for a while now and it is time to rectify the situation!
There has been some interesting and new apps that got found after searching high and low on the Google Play and on the deep dark web so this week coming will mention at least one such app a day...
Anyway to start with here is one that if installed will be flicked on and used for about five minutes once or twice but liked it anyway as it really gets the point across how much signals there is singing to us constantly.
Also it was a direct way to show that to my lovely daughter as well.
All it does is to take the signals and based on the names and strength create musical notes.
So tune in this week for some more deeper apps to be reported!
Please, pretty please make a donation to
Musical android You can do it! It will feel amazing afterwards!!!
