"Part instrument, part interactive ambience, part subtly-changing New Age album, moodscaper's autoplay button is a wonderful introduction to its charms. With a single touch, it generates a musical artwork that's different every time."

"A worthy and lush-sounding musical companion."

Sound On Sound Magazine - Aug 2016

Moodscaper is a generative music app and a great personal companion for studying, providing non-intrusive headphone music at work, relaxing, meditating and even sleeping. Just launch the app, tap automatic play, and moodscaper will produce melodic, atmospheric and evocative ambient music in a “light”, “dark”, “space”, "happy" or “sad” mood.

Moodscaper is also an easy to use instrument for creating epic-sounding pads and effects as part of a larger iPad-based music-making setup. You can even create your own custom instrument by loading your own samples, and taking advantage of moodscaper's generative engine.

· Simple user interface
· Sleep timer
· Five scale-based moods
· Variable dynamics - from mellow and sparse to full-on drama!
· Four loopers with optional sync
· Provides tasteful auto-accompaniment to your playing in realtime or in loops
· Hints displayed on keys that should sound good with root notes or chords
· Samples are randomly stacked for a bigger sound with more variation
· Effects section with filter, dual-delay and reverb
· Effects tweaks can be recorded in loopers
· Additional 20 key instrument for each mood
· Add your own samples and create your own mood-based instrument

What's New

Version 2.0.3

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.

*** Special note if you create and import your own sounds ***

Please note that by default, sounds will not play from the beginning of the file - the starting point is randomised. If you want certain sounds to always play from the beginning, or “frame zero” you need to include a special tag in the filename “pff0” (play from frame zero). For example: “01-one-small-step-pff0.caf”.

Good instrument. 1 major flaw


Very well designed instrument. Lots of potential, particularly with the ability to load my own sounds. And that’s where the major flaw comes in. The inability to share/transfer sounds between apps is a deal breaker for me.
At the very least, the Moodscaper should be compatible with AudioShare.

When I’m using my iPad to do sound design, I have to transfer the completed sound(s) to iTunes on my Mac and then transfer them back to the iPad in order to get the sounds into Moodscaper.

Please make Moodscaper compatible with AudioShare. All of the apps I use for synthesis, sound design and processing are compatible with AudioShare and allow me to quickly transfer my files without using an external machine.

One of the most enjoyable instruments


This is so much fun, and so forgiving to the player. Everything sounds good on it, but you can truly compose, too.

Awesome newness


If you are looking to make some mellow type of music this is hands down the best app for you to start on
