The Wablet

By Robert Tubb

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The Wablet is a physics based synthesiser and noise toy. An animated mesh of springs can be vibrated with the fingers. The Mesh's displacement around a path on this mesh is read as an audio waveform, and hence your gestures are turned into sound. Complex evolving drones, chiptunes bleeps or full on noise can be produced, and beautiful undulating patterns created. The physical properties of the mesh can be changed using the sliders, new sound-paths can be drawn onto the Mesh and the App comes with a Max/MSP patch for sending notes over a wireless network and more in depth adjustable parameters.

"It sounds amazing, and the interaction of graphics, touch, and sound is extraordinary" Peter Kirn, Create Digital Music

Customer Reviews

Fun, interesting

I would like to see it built up into a more useful synthesis app. Perhaps a looping cycle and a way to trigger notes via virtual midi would be all it would take.

interesting synth

wish there was some way to loop
it crashes in my ipad mini retina sys 7.0.4 if not connected to wifi. would be cool to see sequencing of some sort

Now fixed for US iPad 2!
