One of my favorite touch music apps so far. It allows a lot of control, has a lot of adjustability and could be used to actually make music with intention. The randomization factors available allow for a lot of variety if you just want to passively generate music. I love that you can adjust the level of the background sounds. I am a huge fan of the Eno apps (Bloom & Trope [not so much Air]) and I think they would both benefit from the level of adjustability seen in Aura Flux. A huge kudos to the developers. I think this would be very hard to improve upon!
Needs audio work..
This is an interesting app with beautiful visuals. The interface is solid, being uncluttered while still offering limitless nuance. I was not fond of the sounds used, but I am sure if more sounds were added, I could make do. My complaint is that when a sound at the same pitch is played twice, the second sound causes a click. This causes many tiny clicks to occur when designs of any complexity are employed. It would not be an issue if I didn't use headphones, or the app was free, but neither is the case. It ruins my enjoyment of the app. From what I know about audio programming, this isn't hard to fix.
It's a fun app. Easy to create soundscapes. Interface is also visually appealing.
But I wish there were a variety of kinds of sounds. All the sound generators I have encountered are all happy ambient sounding. Is anyone going to make an industrial sounding one - banging metal, chainsaw sounds, metal grinders. Or sounds of traffic.
One thing this program lacks is the ability to erase whole chunks or to have one instrument and all it node so silent as opposed to just having one node go solo.
