Runxt Life Plus

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
RUNXT LIFE is a generative music application created for the iOS® platform based on the cellular automaton theory “Conway’s Game of Life” by John Horton Conway.
The ‘game’ is a zero-player game, meaning that its evolution is determined by its initial state, requiring no further input from humans. One interacts with the Game of Life by creating an initial configuration and observing how it evolves.
You can draw single cells or a predefined pattern stamp on a two dimensional grid. This pattern will evolve according to the rules of “Conway’s Game of Life” after you press ‘play’ or ‘step forward’. Five different colors each represent a different sound or channel.
RUNXT LIFE uses the output of the grid, affected by a few parameters, to either generate sounds or send midi notes to your computer with Core Midi or with the help of the RUNXT LIFE – OSC to MIDI application. In this application you can configure which color is sent to which midi channel.
a fantastic music/osc app
i have been a user for some time of osc enabled apps, touchosc, soniclife, touchable and a few others, and they all work very well for getting what you want down.
but this has more to offer in terms of experimental music and for connecting osc to your daw to play the synths or beats using the conway game of life.
but not only is it just an osc app, but also a tone and click/glitch app, which makes it fantastic for creating stranger vibes to your music without osc.
soniclife is good, but runxt is way better in terms of more options and more things to play with.
i do highly suggest that people purchase this app rather than soniclife, it just has more to offer on such an easier scale.
