Are you looking for an out-of-this-world music experience?
SPACEVIBE - is a multi-oscillator phase distortion module with delay and rotary effects. Easily create extraordinary soundscapes with echoes from outer space.
With sounds ranging from clean bell-like tones and harmonies to extremely distorted sonic mayhem SpaceVibe covers a lot of sonic territory.
Change notes by sliding and tapping your finger around the Frequency pad. Turn on the Noise Pad and add some dirt. Turn on the link switches and fine-tune the vibe effect to get that perfect sound.
Presets fade into one another creating a seamless soundwall. Everything you play just fits.
Hook up with other audio apps via Audiobus or Inter-App-Audio. Gravity mode keeps you playing SpaceVibe in the background while you use another virtual instrument.
Turn your device like a steering wheel to change notes and rotate it towards you to vary linked effects.
SpaceVibe is very easy to play and while it requires no musical knowledge to craft huge soundscapes musicians will feel right at home with a selection of scales to choose from and the ability to easily configure arpeggio-style runs.

Ratings and Reviews
Fun to toy with, but without auv3, it’s very limited.
Great Sci-Fi Sound Generator
UPDATE: Audiobus added, along with more presets and the ability to set scales and save presets. Fifth star added! Original review below:
Extremely straightforward and easy to use, Spacevibe makes creating powerful futuristic soundscapes a breeze.
The 8 presets are basically starting points. All the magic happens on the dual, customizable XY pads in real time. The idea is not to create patches but recordings. Once you get going, you'll see what I mean. Currently, you're restricted to recording within the app and emailing your performance out of the app for use in your projects. The developer has indicated Audiobus support will come in a future update.
When that happens, 5 stars for sure. Well worth the pocket change asking price.
Great power meets simplicity
Whether you use it as just an audio toy, or use it to make a drone or effects track in a project, this app has an understated beauty and power that few others of the many I own have managed to combine. Highly recommended!
