SoundyThingie is an application that translates drawn lines into music. Additionally to just drawing lines it lets you modify them in a variety of ways, like moving them around or connecting them.
If you want to see it in action you can watch the video on the support website: http://www.soundythingie.net
The application starts with an almost entirely black screen, waiting to be drawn onto by you. Each line created results in a sound that is related to the way the line was drawn.
There are only a few principles that make up that sound. Most important are:
- The vertical position of a line determines it's pitch. Lines at the top of the screen sound high, lines at the bottom sound low.
- Drawing speed determines volume. The faster you draw, the louder a line will be.
Besides that there are many buttons to press and knobs to turn which influence the sounds. You can later change a line's volume, attach other lines to it, choose from different waveforms.
You can also load and save your work, modify triggers and whatnot.
There's a short interactive tutorial included with the application that explains most of the functionality and leaves some features to be discovered.
What's New in Version 1.1
- share soundythingie files
- record audio
- two new drawing tools
- iPhone compatible
This App is really great! I use it a lot in my musicproductions for making neverheard soundmodulations, because with a normal synth (Hardware Or VST) it's really hard to create such pitches and soundscapes. Now with the new features like recording and the two new tools, ST is much more interesting.
My little daughter also loves it just to draw lines and making lot of noise :-)
Ein netterZeitvertreib für Menschen die Spaß dran haben elektronischen Sound zu machen. Simpel und leicht. Man ist gewillt Apple-like zu sagen.
Mit einfachen Wischgesten kreeiert man Soundcollagen. 5 Sterne für diese App von mir.
seeeehr schön, aber...
es fehlt definitiv noch eine sehr entscheidende sache, um die ernsthafte nutzung auf dem ipad/iphone zu gewährleisten...
dann gibt es auch den fünften stern;)
