The famous waveform-sculpting synthesizer finally available for iPad!
The latest generation of our Sound Scope synthesizer, with a completely rewritten audio engine, Kuzmoscillator™ modulator, echo, arpeggiator, more range, and higher resolution!
Use your finger to sculpt the oscillator waveforms! Try to draw a jagged shape for rich harmonics. Draw a smooth wave for smooth tones. Use a square shape to create hollow, flute-like sounds. Use the preset wave shape buttons as starting points for different timbres. The oscillators will morph to the preset shapes in time with the arpeggiator tempo.
New features: The flat lines silence each oscillator. The stair step lines turn on aliasing, for a harsher, more retro 8-bit sound.
Simply touch the play area in the bottom third of the screen to play notes like you would on a keyboard. You can use a pinching motion on the ruler on either side of the screen to zoom into a particular pitch region for more precise control. Use two fingers to drag either ruler left or right to change the pitch region you are playing.
With the arpeggiator set to on, try using more than one finger on the central column; Space will step through all of the pitches you have pressed!
Here you can change the arpeggiator and echo mode, and change their timing. With the arpeggiator on, you can use several fingers at once on the performance area, and Space will repeatedly step through these notes. With the arpeggiator turned off, you can play Space one note at a time like you would a keyboard.
The Kuzmoscillator™ modulator is an LFO control for pitch and volume. Drag across it horizontally, and you will cause the sound to go up and down in pitch. Drag vertically, and you will do the same to volume. The distance of your drag determines the AMOUNT of variation, while the speed of your drag determines the SPEED of variation.
For fans of Curtis, Sub Shredder, Ocarina, Leaf Trombone, and BeatMaker! For beat box maestros, drum machine programmers, 303 tweakers, synth heads, and analog junkies. If you love your Moog, Prophet, 808, 909, MKS, Juno or Jupiter, you will love Sound Scope Space!

The wave editing is interesting in discovering different tones, but no IAA, no audio bus, no in app recording, no midi connectivity and a very poor keyboard design unusable for performance makes this but just a toy.
It doesnt work
Why It is on sale if It doesn't work?, i have just bought It!
Interesting but still not much value for my $$$...
I've been pretty critical of The Strange Agency's apps before. I've even collaterally slammed them in other reviews. Looking back at the last review I wrote for CP 1911... Seeing that it was the only one. I felt guilty.
It seems to me that no matter what these folks do there is a line of 15-20 people who just think its the most mind blowing, paradigm shattering, innovative, audio tool ever created.
I find myself getting sucked in by the stacks of one-line praise and the coy descriptions.
So after playing for an hour or so I'm happy to admit I was able to get some interesting sounds out of this. Unfortunately most of them seem to arise after setting up and holding an arp, and then playing with the oddly named echo BPM. Interesting sounds like plucked high tension cables over the very narrow range of 10-30 "BPM".
The down side is the sliders are nearly impossible to use, even with a stylus there is perhaps a pixels worth of distinction between the arbitrary rule marks on the sliders, and the slider control.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
