Capture sounds from the microphone and hear them loop back in the physical space where you recorded them. Load your own sounds into the app’s library with iTunes File Sharing (files will play in sync) or importing from Voice Memos.
Sounds not only persist…they move! Hold the record button (or the “+” button in the sound library) and draw motion by painting with your phone.
Share your creations with other people with the app with deep links.
Record and save high resolution videos of your creations. Portrait and landscape video recording are supported with stereo audio rendered according to the phone’s orientation.
Hide the camera feed in Settings and choose from a selection of background colors.
All you need is an iPhone 6s or later and a pair of headphones.
We’re excited to see what you can do with Fields.

Ratings and Reviews
Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever
This app makes no sense. The description sounded interesting so I downloaded but when launching there’s just a view through camera w come colored dots. I wasted 30 minutes of my day trying to figure out what to do how it works and nothing. The UI in completely in-intuitive and there’s no instructions or help option visible available either, so unless you’re an employee who developed this app I find it difficult that anyone else can even experience what it is this app is supposed to do. Music needs something interesting to make it more interactive, and I had high hopes for this app after reading the press release from the developer however I’m HUGELY disappointed at this point. To the devs - I strongly suggest a tutorial that launches for first-time users, or from a prominent help prompt to explain how to use this app.
Developer Response ,
Hi there. Sorry to hear you had trouble with the app. You're totally right that we need to work on making the app more accessible to new users. We took your advice and included a simple tutorial in version 1.3 if you want to check that out! We know we have a lot more work to do in this area :) Best wishes, Chris
My favorite sound creation tool
Once you take 2-3min to understand how it works, it’s pretty mind blowing. Today I made a dynamic interactive soundscape across 2 floors of my house and into the backyard, using just my iphone mic. It’s an easy, intuitive way to create spatial relationships between sounds.
You can use your phone’s mic to record, upload your own audio, or choose from a library of existing samples. It works with short loops, but can also be used for longer songs, spoken word, field recordings, ambient pieces, etc. And the new update rules! Hell yes!
Super fun app for ambient and A/V enthusiasts
This thing is pretty addicting. Got lost playing with it for over an hour before I even realized what happened. Use the Discover function first to get a feel for what’s possible and then start experimenting on your own. Excited to see what this team comes up with next. Definitely tip of the iceberg for audible AR.
