I’m really looking forward to this app. Here’s what to expect …
“FieldScaper – Sound warp field recorder and scape constructor has been submitted for review.
Advanced field recorder combined with sound warp engine with a collection of ready to use dynamic presets for iPad and iPhone. Discover new ways to create and construct unusual and exciting sounds from any environmental audio recordings or samples recorded from other apps through Inter-App audio or Audiobus.
The main purpose of this advanced app is to shorten the way from recording samples to create spectacular soundscapes and in addition to use this app as glitch loop based effect in the real-time.
The FieldScaper consists of two main parts. The first part is the field recorder with special options for different ways of record environmental sound from microphone or record other sound sources. The second part is the scaper sound engine that with using dynamic presets can easily transform the most ordinary samples into something absolutely different. These parts connect with each other into one whole but you can use recorder or scaper separately.
The scaper sound engine contains three sample-based oscillators each with filters, delay, distortion and spatial mixer. The most of parameters can be assigned on individual low-frequency oscillators. With using the “Main effect” fader you can control several these parameters in different ranges. These features give you the abilty to create continuously changing, breaking and glitching sound forms and loop-based effects from ordinary samples of synths, guitars, voices or everyday sounds of the environment.
FieldScaper supports complete MIDI control for all faders, knobs and many buttons. You can change the parameters of oscillators, filters, delays and mixer by using any external MIDI controller or MIDI apps like sequencers. With the MIDI controllers this app becomes very comfortable to use at live performance.”

Synthtopia and other sites picked this up and I have to admit that it really is a great story. I have to say that it reminds of the mode in Bhajis Loops that look like a spreadsheet so that if anyone caught you using it at work you could claim you were doing a spreadsheet on your PDA.
I love these kind of things, they just make me think about how awesome people are and how creative and making ordinary devices make music.
I’ve been a littleBits user for some time now and have often wondered what they’d do in ‘app’ terms. This is a good start. It doesn’t interface with your littleBits creations, but it does give you lots of suggestions and links to your littleBits online account.
I think that’s a good start, but I hope it is just a start and that they’ll add functionality to it over time.
For now, here’s the app details from the store:
