HyperSpace 3D Synthesizer

HyperSpace, the waveform-sculpting 3-D oscilloscope synth is the latest edition of our Space series.
HyperSpace uses a unique algorithm to generate endless mesmerizing images from sound. It works similarly to a harmonograph, but uses its 3 voice oscillators instead of pendulums to create images. Each oscillator is mapped to a dimension in 3-D space. Playing a single note creates a wave, like on an ordinary oscilloscope. Playing two notes at once creates a plane as with the harmonograph, and playing a three note chord creates a volume.
There are two oscillators to crossfade between. These can be set to standard shapes as with older synths, but HyperSpace also lets you sculpt the waves with touch! Changing the wave shapes of course alters the sound, but it also alters the generated imagery. The variety of imagery generated with this simple algorithm is truly astonishing.

Love this synth
I like how it's very basic with the waves and osc similar to classic mono synths. I don't use it for visuals so to me that isn't an important feature. However, there are so many scales to choose from and you can really program the sound you want easily. This makes some very cool gnarly sounds. The echo is cool too.
Some potential….not there yet
The most interesting thing about this app, and why I bought it, is the visualizer. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any way to save video, just audio. Without that, it is of very limited interest.
