SQUCR – prototype music making interface design

Very interesting stuff. I think that this is the first time I’ve seen the Sunvox engine used elsewhere. I was vaguely aware of the ZGE engine though, which looks interesting on it’s own.

Here’s the video’s description:

This is the current state of a little interface for creating tunes on Android devices (shown here is a Nexus 7).

This now features 5 tracks of synthesized drums, (16 steps x 8 patterns), with the newly added single synth part, on the second page of controls. This may expand to 2 or 3 synth parts, and more patterns will likely be added as well. Currently working on adding note bending interface elements.

The sliders work on speed of movement, so that slow movements enable fine control and faster slides get quick changes,. experimental still.

The interface/application is being constructed using the ZGE engine, with the SunVox Modular sound engine handling the actual sound synthesis.
