I only heard about this app today. I’m hoping to try it out very soon. Here’s the app’s description:
Synse is an interactive Visual-Music-App to control music and visuals simultaneously.
VJ and DJ become VDJ with Synse.
Rotate device to switch between video and sequencer mode!
• Video Mode (Device in portrait or landscape with Home button on the left)
In this mode you control each instrument/track and their visuals with one touch. Each instrument has its own touch area. To show these areas, simply tap on the “Show Grid” area on the left or right corners at the bottom of the screen.
• Sequencer Mode (Device in landscape with Home button on the right)
Arrange a whole song by tapping inside the sequencer grid and scroll through the arrangement by swiping left or right.
- PLAY/PAUSE: Lets you play and pause the song.
- STOP: Stops the song and the locator jumps back to the beginning of the arrangement.
- LOOP: When activated, loops the current bar of the arrangement.
- SETUP: Shows the setup screen, where you can
- ⁃load a different set (music and visuals)
- ⁃save and load arrangements
- ⁃change the length of the song
- ⁃turn off LiveTouch mode (disables touching in video mode)
- ⁃activate Shake mode (toggle video and sequencer mode only by shaking the device)
Hint: Hold the STOP button with one finger and tap in the sequencer grid to move the locator.
- The concept of Synse was presented at C/O-Pop-Convention 2009 and won the KurzUndSchoen-Award 2009 in the category “Mobile Miniaturen”.
