Thanks and happy moodscaping!

*** moodscaper owners - please note ***

If you already own moodscaper, you can import these sounds into the app via iTunes File Sharing by downloading the sounds from for free. Moodscaper SE came about after numerous requests for the additional sounds to be made available in a new standalone app. If you already own moodscaper, you probably don't need moodscaper SE ;-)

What's New

Version 1.0.1

Random stuff!

Added more playback randomisation - this should be noticeable on longer evolving chord and effect sounds. You may even hear some things you haven’t heard before! Hope you like this little tweak.

If I was stranded on a desert island...


and could only take one app with me, this would be it! (If I could take two more, they would be Moodscaper and Pianoscaper 😀) This app has three sound sets - SE-01, 02, and 03 - and each produces a different listening/performing experience. They're not obviously different because they all produce beautiful ambient, warm, lush sounds. My impression is that SE-01 is more harmonically rich and more slowly melodically (?) evolving. SE-03 is more orchestral sounding often with low and high tones at the same time. SE-02 (my favorite) is more lively, both rhythmically and tonally. It has beautiful phasing and pulsing accents almost like an arpeggiator. It is easy to toggle between these three sound sets in performance. My thanks to Rob for creating this app so I don't have to go iTunes to load these sounds into Moodscaper! Even though that option is free. For me, a few bucks to avoid this hassle is well worth it! Moodscaper SE is gorgeous!



Love it. Please add Audiobus. Ill pay :)

It's like a mood ring, but it's an app!


Did I date myself with the mood ring comment? Whatever! I love this app! I already have moodscaper and I already downloaded the extra sounds for it but I like Robs apps so much that I bought this one just to support the developer. I don't know Rob and I've never met Rob. I just love his apps.

The sounds in this thing are incredible and it inspires me to do other things. What I mean by that is I record a few bars from moodscaper se and then improvise new things over it. Usually using guitar but sometimes other synthesizers.

Look for videos on YouTube to get an idea. This isn't like buying a MiniMoog soft synth. These are specific sounds designed with ambience in mind for max moodiness.
