Explore the algorithmic music of simple bitwise arithmetic operations while watching the retro-digital 3D graphics!

BitWiz Audio Synth translates C-like code expressions into 8-bit generative stereo audio in real-time. The entered code expression is used to calculate each audio frame, also known as "bytebeat" synthesis.

Record your sessions and export through iTunes File Sharing or Audio Copy to other apps, or send them to AudioShare - the audio document manager.

Use the dual multitouch XY-pad or external MIDI control to tweak variables in the expression in real-time. Play BitWiz as a musical instrument or compose algorithmic pieces that evolves by themselves! BitWiz can also include the microphone input for crazy distortion effects!

BitWiz comes bundled with lots of examples, and you can easily add your own codes to the built-in library.
You can also share your codes by e-mail, twitter or facebook, or open them in another application.

You don't need to learn C to use this app, just play around with the included codes and tweak a number here or there, and strange glitchy variations will appear. You can even let BitWiz generate random codes for you with a swipe!

Glitché Goodness


Delicious Bitcode Bitwise audio mayhem.

Wonderful addition to my iOS synth collection

This synth has a mild learning curve but is absolutely AWESOME once you get it figured out. Xy pads, midi, audiobus, audio copy and paste. All the features necessary to make this a very useable synth are packed in this bad boy. The sounds you can conjure are very unusual, and with a little tweaking can provide you with some impossible to recreate samples which can be sent to your app of choice for further destruction/mangling. I highly recommend this over glitch machine. All though both are great, this is the leader of the pack. Try sending your samples thru glitchbreaks or glitch1 Also I love how there is a random patch making button, this is going to be one of those apps that finds a special place on your iPad. Only thing I would like to see added is maybe an online patch library thru the app and a PDF manual. keep up the awesome work devs! And thanks for the updates, you guys rock!

Awesome Glitch-making!


Love it. I can't program, but it is fun to add x And y all over the place. Randomize function is the key to great fun! It's sound is great and the x/y pad can make a patch scream or wobble or hiss or pulsate. Very well done generator and the visuals are pretty inspiring and hypnotizing. I plan to incorporate with my sampling synths for sure.

Just emailed to the Dev, Jonatan, and he is super responsive and even considered several features I requested. This app great as-is, but with the Dev being so responsive, it
will simply get better.
