From the maker of scriptSONIC comes a new modular iOS app called Ops

Jonathan Mackenzie, the maker of scriptSONIC brings us a new universal app called Ops. Here are all the details …

Ops is a modular synthesiser designed to make it easy to create and explore sound interactively with a touch screen. Ops does away with patch cords, instead using a system of connected blocks with a clear signal flow.

The blocks, called ops, are joined together into structures by dragging and dropping them on screen. Structures can easily be copied and varied to build-up rich, interesting results.

There are ops to perform a wide range of functions, including interaction, signal generation, effects processing, control, audio input, MIDI input, and pitch and rhythm manipulation.

Ops costs $9.99 on the app store now:

Worth also checking out the docs part of the site too.

I’ll be very keen to see how this pans out. It certainly looks like it’ll be a bit of a learning curve, but worth the journey.
