App Store Description:

Touchscaper is an instrument designed for anyone who wants to make music on their iPad simply by touching the screen. You don’t have to be a serious musician to enjoy touchscaper, but if you are, touchscaper is highly configureable under the hood.

Main features:

• Multi-touch based interface with “radar”, “ribbon” and keyboard surfaces
• Touch the screen to play a note, move your fingers to change the sound
• Semi-generative engine selects the “good notes” for you
• Touch movement can control volume and pan for each individual note
• Total control over chords, keys and scales (fully chromatic)
• Multiple chords can be generated from keys and scales to create “scenes”
• Chord "navigator" helps you create inspiring chord progressions
• 40 built-in sounds can be combined in 2 layers to create “instruments”
• Built-in sounds include samples from moodscaper, pianoscaper, numerous analog synths and guitars
• Comes with preset example scenes and instruments
• Random instrument generator function with one tap of a button
• Hold and orbit modes for hands-free evolving soundscapes
• Ribbon style keyboard with touch vibrato
• Chord looper with Ableton Link support
• Arrangement view for longer / more complex chord progressions
• 16 step probability-based sequencer for touch, drums, percussion and synth automation
• "jam grid" sequencer view for live performances
• Supports file sharing for scenes and instruments
• Built-in effects including ping-pong delays, reverb, limiter and EQ
• Supports IAA (Inter-App Audio) as a generator
• Control other music apps using MIDI out and CCs with optional MPE support

There are several demo videos in circulation which should give you a better idea of what touchscaper can do - just search for “touchscaper” or check out the moodscaper YT channel.

What's new in v1.6.1

• Updated Ableton Link SDK

This update should fix sync issues or cases where touchscaper is not being recognised by other Link-enabled apps and vice versa.

PLEASE NOTE: The first time you enable Link, you may see a permissions alert asking for confirmation to allow touchscaper to access your network. This is solely to support Link and is basically how Link enables apps to communicate.

iPad Screenshots:

Very nice app, well worth getting right now. Will be on another level when it gets AU3 and Midi out.
