So I’m all for a unique interface and this app certainly has that. I’m not sure that I completely get it, but it definitely has my interest. Here’s the app’s description:
Combine synth sounds, visual patterns & drum rhythms. Get on a sensual journey…
EXPLORATION & EXPRESSION
With Mazetools Soniface you can create various styles of electronic music. Based on common aspects of music production and notation the app guides you towards a visual music composition.
HOW THE GRID WORKS?
The framework of action is a grid that works audiovisual. Each line represents a single note. Shining lines are showing playing tones. Get information about all functions through an integrated manual.
X-Y CONTROLLERS & MULTI-TOUCH
Explore the circular editing interface with its sound and visual effects. Use of multi-touch gestures for altering them .
DYNAMIC SOUND MODULATION
Merge sound and geometric shapes! Draw freely with your finger circuits to modulate the sound wave. Do the same to create automation curves and let the sound effects vary.
Explore the arpeggiator interface and let the grid play a sequence of notes automatically.
GROOVE DRUM SEQUENCER
Tap the drum steps into 3 circles to set bass drums, snares and hi-hats. Adjust each envelope, pitch and noise level and automate them afterwards.
LIVE MODE & SPECIAL VISUALS
Create different patterns to create songs. Add a special kaleidoscope visual to highlight a pattern.
You can store your creations in different ways. Collect single Mazes or whole sets and add them immediately. Add one set into another and extend your playing time.
We will bring spaced out updates and a reduced free version soon…
