Having got back into the iOS world here’s an update for MegaCurtisBig only a few days after the app was released. Here’s what’s new:
- Play the audio wave glissando with touch
- Optionally scale wave touch to keyboard scale setting
- Fixes keyboard limit to stay within MIDI range
New WAVE button makes the main wave display playable by simply touching it. New KEYED button will quantise the wave touch note pitch to the scale set on the keyboard.

After a very long time dormant The Strange Agency is back, and it’s great! They’ve brought us MegaCurtisBig! Here are the details …
Turn any recording into a synthesizer! Now with support for Audiobus and MIDI.
MegaCurtisBig uses an unusual hybrid of wavetable and granular synthesis to create tones and timbres quite apart from the standard FM or subtractive synthesis fare. Add this app to your arsenal to create sounds you simply cannot squeeze out of any other synth, no matter how much you’ve twiddled its knobs.
Create a synthesizer from any recording, with endless tweaking possibilities. Play the sound forward, backward, or even at a single point! Unlike scratching a record, pitch doesn’t depend on how quickly you move through the recording.
You can load sounds through iTunes, record directly with your iPad, or paste audio from other applications. Try it with speech, singing, synths, jackhammers, or birds. Mangle your recordings or create soft, gentle textures.
MegaCurtisBig costs $2.99 on the app store today:
