*****CURRENTLY IN DEVELOPMENT******
AudioShard continues and develops on the ideas first explored in the SoundMashine App but with a whole new set of features and its own distinctive interface. Each of its 16 tiles acts as an individual audio scratchpad with its own assignable FX which can be played on the tile.
AudioShard features a new and improved sound Engine which now offers polyphony and state saving.
Designed with the screen estate of the iPad in mind AudioShard offers a whole new sound composition experience.
AudioShard has the following features:
Realtime slicing based on peak amplitude
Multiple playback modes: autoslice,manual slice,manual select, loop accumulator
one shot tile and loop tile with time offset
Wav/AIF Input (via the Document Share folder) and Microphone Input, separate or combined
Fx Preset Save and Recall
Fx Tile Settings Copy and Paste
Pattern Sequencer with multiple banks
Tile Cancel Out and Tile Hold (Sticky) modes to build up montages of loops.
AudioShard with initially be available for the iPad with a version for the iPhone coming soon after
Coming soon, come back here for further news and previews.
SoundMashine is a granular synthesis based sound sampling and sequencing instrument that fully utilises touch gestures to provide a fast and easy to use compositional tool.
The app records sound using the devices built-in microphone, then divides the sound into slices which are then automatically assigned to each of the 16 screen tiles.
Each tile has its own set of parameters allowing you to adjust window size ,playback rate, pitch, feedback, delay and delay modulation, all of which are easily set by the swipe of a finger. Each parameter listed can also be randomised between a set of assignable values.
Using the sequencer function patterns of tiles can be recorded and played back at different speeds, again using simple touch gestures.
With its flexibility for working with sound at different pitches, rates and sequencer speeds, SoundMashine lends itself well to a variety of
compositional paradigms, from beat based through to drone or noise based music forms.

A-Delay is a granular synthesis based delay processing unit, built with processing live audio input in mind. Live input coming into the iPhone or iPad either through the built-in microphone or through an input cable can be processed in real-time warping the sound either minimally or to the extreme.
Through the simple and clean interface audio can be pitch shifted, have feedback applied and of course delayed, combinations of these settings can create surreal soundscapes out of the most conventional of sounds. In Addition each of the effects levels can be automated allowing you to set parameter sweeps which playback automatically leaving you with the business of playing/sending in the audio input.
