the microTone for iPad arrives

A new controller, but a microtonal one apparently. Here’s the app’s description:

Are you a keyboard player?
Did you ever want to play microtonal chords?
Or maybe play real glissandi?

The microTone is a microtonal polyphonic synthesizer and OSC controller for the ipad.


  • control one octave fluently without steps. Just glide over the keyboard with up to 10 fingers!
  • switch octaves or lowest/highest notes
  • use your eyes or ears to check your intonation
  • integrated polyphonic synthesizer with 8 different sound presets (more to come!)
  • send your pitch data over WiFi/OSC to your computer.
  • send your pitch data over WiFi/OSC to max/MSP

The app is priced at $9.99
