Welcome to The Droner, experimental noise & drone station for iPad.
- You can listen to a sample I made myself with it here :
- Asteroid Anxiety artist made this album using ONLY this application: http://asteroidanxiety.bandcamp.com
In the help, you can see the routing schematics of the synthesizer.
Be careful, you don’t have a classic or a regular machine in your hands.
Indeed, it can produces very unique and strange sounds textures and you have to learn to handle it.
It contains a very strange multiple-tones generator and a noise unit.
Both are independent and are mixed to the sound output.
You can use one, or both at the same time.
You have to use it with earphones or to use a line input on your
sound-system in order to render the best results.
You can record while playing with it.
The PCM file will be saved in the document folder of The Droner application on your iPad.
You use iTunes to manage the files in this folder to backup them on your computer, or remove them.
This is a great app despite the mediocre reviews left earlier by others. Take your time with this, and you will be rewarded with wonderful sounds. The complaint the other reviewer left about "it just sound like a helicopter" are false. If you have this problem, turn the level down on the slider that says "noise", and ta-da no more helicopter noise! I had a blast with this app! My only criticism would be the inability to name recordings, and store settings, other than that I love it! Thank you for the groovy fun app!
Very simple - not very droney
This seems to a be wrapper around a kind of primitive pd patch. The drone is thin, being two oscillators and two noise sources, artlessly assigned to separate stereo channels, and it's actual sounds are not particularly droney either. It could stand a lot more work.
Nice but not the price
I like all sound making apps. This has. Sound and character of its own but in comparison to other sound generators it's overpriced. Also,MIT needs background sound... A must for all "drone" apps.
