Randgrid for iPhone


Another new synth / studio app has just arrived on the iPhone app store. Randgrid is based on two analogue synths and a drum machine. It looks very impressive indeed, and is only priced at £3.99. Here are the full specs of the app:

– 2x monosynth
– dual oscillator / waveform: saw/sqare / detune / slide speed
– 24 db lowpassfilter / cutoff / resonance / env mod / decay
– delay send
– pan
– volume
– note trig
– accent trig
– slide trig
– dist send
– 14x drumparts, sample start sample stop 4 bit flam delay send pan volume note trig accent trig dist send
– 1x step sequencer 8 parameter locks per step note value note trig accent trig slide trig
– 1x stereo delay
– 1x distortion

Interestingly the site says the following:

This is a pre release of Randgrid, exiting new features are currently being developed and added, while some might change.

I’d like to see how this one develops.

This is an interesting use of the Arduino.

The Auduino is a sound synthesiser based on the Arduino platform. The prototype uses the Arduino Diecimila, although any Arduino running at 16MHz will work fine. It uses granular synthesis techniques to generate a distinctive filter-sweep sound that had much more character than boring square waves.

It sounds like there are quite a lot of possibilities here, if of course you have an Arduino in the first place. The site has some interesting links, including the video about and this Flckr set of a really nice cased Auduino.

Gadget Orchestra (via Synthtopia)

Nice video I found at Synthtopia. I liked the use of different applications on these platforms. Personally I would have added a palm or PPC as well, but is is interesting to watch, and has also made me want to go and do one of my own.

Reel Deck for iPhone


Reel Deck is an audio recorder for the iPhone (and 2G Touch), and whilst normally I wouldn’t post on an app like this I thought that the interface as really well designed. Here are the app features:

-Simple interface
-100 fast recording reels
-Level indicator
-Record seconds or hours
-Rename your recordings
-Pause during playback or recording
-Date/time/size on your recordings
-Erase recording, tap eject twise
-180 degree screen rotation
-5.5 to 44.1khz sample frequency in 4 steps
-Reel tape simulator (animation)
-Led indicator on Rec, Play, Pause buttons
-Led indicator on sample frequency buttons
-Memory low warning/ reboot for best performance

And, I really like that the reels go around too.
