More modular fun for your iPad, waverails arrives, can be tried for free, needs an IAP for full use

I’m all for more interesting tools for iOS and this does look quite unusual indeed. I haven’t tried it out as yet, but I expect I will do soon enough, and when I have I’ll be able to tell you if I think that the IAP is worth it or not.

On that note, I have to say that I think that this is quite a good way to offer up an app. In effect it is a ‘try before you buy’ option. I quite like that.

Anyway, for now here’s the app’s app store description:

waverails is a modular path-based loop processor, inspired by avant-garde tape music and early electromechanical musical contraptions. Instead of recording, overdubbing and splicing together tape, waverails lets you splice, warp, blend and reverse audio (live input and/or samples) in real-time by using path-based modular components. waverails can be used as an audio processor or live performance tool to create effects and performances that aren’t easily replicated in real-time with traditional audio software and effects.

Create:

  • Lo-fi warped sound collages
  • Phased loops (just like your favorite 20th century minimalist composers!)
  • Chopped up real-time glitchy beats
  • Massive glittery ambience
  • Granular textures
  • Harmonic and rhythmic effects that transform input sounds into music

Features:

  • Audiobus support (filter port)
  • Control each modular component’s parameters in real time
  • Jump functionality lets you easily set cues and sync object positions and speeds
  • Fine grained or musical interval-based speed control
  • BPM control to match audio input tempo
  • Perform any task with a few taps, without needing any gestures/long presses.
  • No additional hardware or apps required, create new sounds using internal or imported samples
  • Info function to share and learn information about custom patches.

note: full patch editing and save functionality require in-app purchase.
