Welllll what is this?
It is maybe looking thin on the specs.
But the personality is big and special, full of creepy comfort-
cold and warm at the same time.
I lumped these two together as they are pretty similar they both have the same functions which are a way to draw the sound on top of the screen and play it in the bottom half theremin application style.
It comes with some presets that I recommend listening to,
because in my case when I first started the applications there was to my ears not too much change inbetween what I was drawing to what I was hearing,
so to listen to the presets is a way to realize that it can generate pretty much more than first meets the ears.
Plus that it helps you to see what kind of shapes will give you what type of sounds.
Otherwise it's not too much more –
echo on/off- recording and saving of wave file, and kind of low pass filter and thats it,
but it is worth it.
The sounds are really good for ambient style tracks,
or for putting ambiance into a track,
and as it is possible to record,
you can always open them up inside for example sunvox or any other app with sampler.
It has similar type of sounds but I would say that they are distinct enough to buy both,
If I had to choose one I think that SpectrumGen is a little bit more to my liking-
makes me think of the low humming of machines in a large factory at night.
My critique would be that the echo effect can introduce kind of overload,
so you have to adjust your playing style if you engage the echo,
or better yet if you are going to use it in your music record it dry and add effects later or record directly with reverb, echo etc...
and one very small critique more would be that you cant save your own presets,
but to be honest it is very easy to create your own sounds and it's easy to find out what shapes makes what sounds...
so here is some sound examples...just playing around and putting on and off the echo.
hmm...better than playstore video?
Well to do them full justice I think that the best way is to hear them mixed in with music-
so lets do this,
when I finished a track including one or both of these minor beauties I will upload it here.
