Here’s what Rob has to say about this …
BitWiz is a really simple environment for writing one-liner 8-bit synthesizers (it’s not my app, written by Kymatica). I am demonstrating the kind of sound I was able to get out of it, using the harmonic series to stand-in for a scale so that I can play it a little with two fingers, and running a background behind it. This sort of patch creation interface could be useful for 16-bit OSC/MIDI synths driven by controllers; though 8-bit audio has some non-obvious advantages for this task.
Interesting comments, let’s see where BitWiz’s developer takes that.
My attempt at a dark and gothic rock style. Music made with Garageband for iPad and Mac. Video made with Videostar and Vjay apps for iPad. A lot of effort in this one, I’d love to know what you think.
