☢ Turn any recording into a unique synthesizer! ☢
Use the built-in presets or any recording to create sounds never heard before. Make a synth from opera, from screeching cats, from the latest radio newscast. Sample one hand clapping, or a tree falling in the woods; any sound will lend its unique properties to MegaCurtis!
Paste files from other apps, record through the built-in or an external mic, or transfer files through iTunes. Play them using the onscreen piano-style keyboard or use the unique WAVE keyboard, allowing you to play by simply touching the sound!

Granular synthesis works by combining many tiny grains of sound from an existing recording, creating new sounds with the textural properties of the original. Wavetable synthesis works by sweeping through a series of single-cycle waveforms.
MegaCurtis uses our hybrid of granular and wavetable synthesis, Gravetable™, combining the periodicity of wavetable synthesis with the chop and overlap of granular synthesis.
"Love the UI on this, reminds me of Grain Science, another fav of mine. if its wierd, strange and original, we love it!"
"my hat goes off to The Strange Agency for developing forward-thinking and straight up cool-looking apps"

Ratings and Reviews
This is probably the best granular synth on iOS
Anyone who says otherwise, doesn't know how it works or how to use it. I've created some incredibly unique sounds and textures on Megacurtis. Secret Weapon!!!
Cool but wonky.
Very interesting app. It does work with headphones but you have to unplug and replug to get it to work. Very cool for a freaking dollar.
I really want to love this app..
....but it just sounds like garbage. Granular or gravetable or whatever they wanna call it, everything just sounds horrible to my ears... So many other granular apps that mangle sound in a sonically pleasing way.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
