Sound and MIDI Scripts

The app comes with several useful scripts and built in help. The developer also has a forum where you can ask questions and share ideas.

You can easily tweak the script examples to suit your purposes.

I've enjoyed slicing up a sample and sending the resulting audio to an effect app which I can control with ScriptSonic at the same time.

Supports IAA, Audiobus, and AudioShare. You can even copy projects from one iPad to another and import them directly into ScriptSonic.

If you're into generative music, this app is definitely worth looking into.

Once you've got your project going, you can change the timing, and mute script actions from the grid in real time. Or use the grid as pads. Lots of possibilities here.

Diving In

I got an iPad just to use this app. Well, this and a bunch of other ones, but I'm looking forward to sonicPi-ing my iPad music apps.
