Ratings and Reviews

Thanks for the update!


I'm glad that you took my criticism as constructive, true artists! Thanks for updating, it is a lot more enjoyable now. Keep up the good work!

Original post
It's a cool application I think, but I think it also needs work. (updates would be awesome!) The price is too high for what it really is. (it's more or the same expense as bloom, only bloom is totally awesome) You cannot do very much with this app at all.

The visuals are very cool because I hadn't ever seen anything like it before. Plus it is fun to see the everchanging patterns you can create.

I wish I had more control over how it sounded. It seems moving your finger around the screen only minimally changes what you hear.

I know if you hold 2 fingers on it for a little while, both the visuals and the sound drastically change. I tried other finger combinations to no avail. Is this it? No instructions are given( I believe)

It might be cooler if more things like this happened, and you could more drastically manipulate the sounds, and if it was cheaper.

I still appreciate all the hard work put into this app though, very cool guys.

good fusion of sound and visuals


I could see how people could find the music raucous, but I'm down with it. I like the concept of being able to use your fingers to mess around with sound. This app implements that concept well, so A+ for me! And on top of that there's a visual aspect!

It is sometimes difficult to change modes with the 3 finger gesture. Either fix the gestures or add some kind of button to change modes. The tilty thing isn't cutting it for me either.

A function to change the genre or tempo would be neat. This might be asking too much, but more visual modes would be just fabulous too

Be your own autechre


Very addictive, and has more depth than I was expecting. In general, audio frequently sounds crummy on digital devices but the choice of sounds and interactiveness of thicket overcome these weaknesses and exploit the strengths of this mini touch computer we call an iPhone. Now if they would just pair up with Oval, Autechre or Pita or other tech-savvy musicians of that ilk and release music in an interactive format like this, then we'd have a more sustainable model for (at least a certain type of) music releases in the digital era.
