HexASound turns your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch into a multi-tone generator instrument. The unusual keyboard layout, based on hexagons, has been especially crafted for multi-touch devices. It allows you to easily play any kind of tune in a bounded screen.
If you are new to music, learning would not usually have been that simple. The listing of usual scales and chords helps you see the patterns in the music thanks to the geometrical layout.
If you are a seasoned musician, HexASound can be used as an instrument in its own right or as a tool to help you transpose your favorite patterns.
• Easy transposition
• Scalable keyboard layout
• Many sound filters
• Real-time sound customization
I love this ap! I found it while searching for a tone generator but this is much more of a musical instrument, not too far from an organ. The controls are nice, the settings are simple and the beauty is in the creativity that it almost injects the user with. I will be looking at this ap often. Great job! If I had any suggestions I would think that the ability to either record or loop would cool but not really necessary.
Great BUT THERE'S A CRASH BUG WHEN OPENING THE SETTINGS
I tried to open the settings one time and the app crashed. This never happened to me before with the app and it still crashes whenever I open the settings. Please fix this!
This could be useful for some things. Add some functions like record, loop, and some effects like reverb and delay/ echo, plus some more parameter tweaking like an envelope filter, and you've really got something.
