SoundMashine is a granular synthesis-based sound sampling and sequencing instrument that utilizes multi-touch gestures to provide a fast and easy to use compositional tool.
The app records sound using the device's 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 the user to adjust the sound slices window size, playback rate, pitch, feedback, delay and delay modulation, all of which are 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.
