S is a BIG letter in the mobile music world. I don’t know why, but it seems that lots of things start with S.
S is for Sampletoy
SampleToy is a lot of fun. That’s a good start. I do think that it isn’t really a toy. Sure, you can have a lot of fun with it, but it can do a lot more too. I’ve really enjoyed playing with it and it has a great interface too, so I think it is more than a toy, but you judge for yourselves.
S is for Slice
S is for Sonorasaurus
S is for Sound Scope Space
Sound Scope Space for both iPhone and iPad is another app from the Strange Agency. Sound Scope is the kind of experimental sound / music app that I love. Interesting sound and interface and make strange noises. Excellent.
S is for SoundGrid
S is for Spoke
Of all the apps from the Strange Agency (and I’ve just realised that 3 of them start with S) Spoke is my least favourite. I like the idea, but I think it never really had the same level of finish as their other apps which was a shame.
S is for Star6
Star6 is an amazing loop / sample manipulation app. At first I didn’t like it too much, but it really grew on me a lot, and now my view has changed. If mangling samples is your bag and you haven’t tried it out then you don’t know what you’re missing.
S is for Stompvox
S is for Sunvox
It is no secret that I’m a big Sunvox fan. An amazing cross platform tracker / synth / sampler / modular environment. An amazing piece of software and I can’t wait to get it running on my iPad when it arrives.
S is for Symphony
S is for SynthPond
SynthPond is one of the first iPhone apps I bought and I think that the concept is still very innovative indeed. It hasn’t seen an update in way too long and can get overlooked as an early innovation in the iPhone music arena. If you don’t know it then take a look.
S is for Styletap
The Palm OS emulator for Windows Mobile, Symbian and now iPhone (jailbreak only). I still have this on my Axim, but don’t use it so much now. Still a great idea and good software, and they’re thinking of porting to Android as well now.
S is for Syntrax
If you’ve never been a Pocket PC or Windows Mobile user then you’ll never have heard of Syntrax. This was a really early application that is still around although I don’t think it is in active development any more.
S is for SoundPad
From the Palm OS, SoundPad is the synth engine behind lots of the miniMusic applications. SoundPad is an FM synth which allows you to create multiple sounds and banks and then use them in other miniMusic applications.
S is for Synthulator
S is for Stylophone
S is for SU10
Wow, that took a long time to write. I hope you found something interesting in there.
