iDensity for iPad brings all the powerful Density/Pulsaret (Mac/Win standalone) Granular Synthesis tools to the world’s most popular tablet.
iDensity is rated as a Killer App by Apps4iDevices.
iDensity is a new real-time software designed for asynchronous sound file granulation, a genuine granular playground able to generate a wide range of usual and not so usual effects: time/pitch shifting, time/pitch jittering, intricate textures, grain fountain/pulverizer, recording and manipulation of buffers, complex scrub pad exploration, dynamic envelope shape and many more. iDensity for iPad will give you all the basic and advanced tools you need to manipulate sound in subtle and surprising ways. All these features are packed in an optimized, user-friendly, visually sharp interface that is easy to access when fast-improvising live, composing in a studio, or sound designing at home and on the go! You will have the power, freedom, and flexibility to create like never before – on your iPad! iDensity allows you to record audio directly with your iPad mic and load up to nine built-in sound sample or add your own WAV, AIFF, CAF, MP3, M4A or MP3 files via iTunes.
With iDensity it is possible to record the stereo output (of granulation) into the documents folder while scrubbing in the wavepad or moving granulation parameters in real-time. The mixdown/audio results can then be syncronized with/in iTunes.
Control and shape grains, anytime, anywhere with Density for iPad.

This app will turn your sounds inside out and upside down. My only complaint is the UI. It is as counterintuitive as the sounds you will create.
A few examples: (1) how to revert the original sound to its unaffected self - I don't know! (2) How to bring back sound I just had before I further mangled it inadvertently - I don't know! (3) How to snap an effect on and off with preset values (ie - go from 0.00 to 2.05 with one scrub, and then have it snap automatically back to 0.00
without scrubbing back) - I don't know! (4) how to apply a preset scenario - I don't know!
So, as far as the sounds you can get, awesome...major transformation possible, not just mid level tweaks to pattern impact. But, as far as the workflow, it too feels like mangle city, it feels like a gamble each time. Some more control would be useful as far as backtracking and snapping back.
Maybe I'm missing the point in that you are supposed to let it morph your sound and you follow it, but this workflow can be frustrating, even if inspiring.
A truly beautiful thing
I like squeezing new ideas out of my own recordings, and though there are lots of samplers/mangles out there, iDensity is my favorite.
It makes the most sense in terms if GUI (it's pretty transparent), and I get the best results.
