Cycle - Time Lag Accumulator

playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

Cycle is a time lag accumulator - a musical system that repeats the notes you play over and over until they gradually fade into silence. It's a simple but very powerful idea, allowing you easily create fascinating and often unexpected sonic textures.

Cycle can be a delightful meditative experience. The system naturally lends itself well to long and slowly evolving musical ideas, which encourages you to slow down and listen carefully as notes gradually fade in and out.

Cycle can also be a great starting point for creating ambient music. Cycle features easy recording and exporting to both wav and midi files, as well as Inter-App Audio (IAA) and Audiobus support. Easily Airdrop or email recordings to your computer, and use them right away in your favorite DAW.

Features:

- 12 sound options. Samples by @electronisounds.
- 3 octave MIDI keyboard
- Inter-App Audio (IAA) and Audiobus support
- Controllable tempo
- Controllable reverb wet/dry mix
- Built-in metronome
- 5 colors

Bloom: 10 Worlds

playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers are pleased to announce Bloom: 10 Worlds – a developed, augmented and expanded new edition of 2008’s game-changing original Bloom app, which explored uncharted territory in the realm of applications and was dubbed “The First Great iPhone App” by Gizmodo.

Requiring no musical or technical ability, the egalitarian and user-friendly Bloom app enabled anyone of any age to create music, simply by touching the screen. Part instrument, part composition and part artwork, Bloom’s innovative controls allowed users to create elaborate patterns and unique melodies by simply tapping the screen. A generative music player took over when Bloom was left idle, creating an infinite selection of compositions and their accompanying visualisations.

Bloom: 10 Worlds is a reimagining of the original – not simply a remaster. If the original Bloom was a single, then this would be an album. The widely broadened palette of sounds and images can be experienced via 10 new ‘worlds’, each exploring a new direction for Bloom. The first world the user encounters is an echo of the original app, with circles appearing where the user taps. Each subsequent world unlocks automatically, introducing new combinations of sounds, shapes, colours and rules of behaviour.


Praise for the original Bloom

“The very first iPhone apps were universally dull. And then Bloom came out. It was immediately obvious that something special was happening. The app was interesting on an artistic level – one that made you reconsider the relationship between technology and music. It raised the bar for musical iPhone apps.” Gizmodo

“Hypnotic and ludicrously addictive.” The Guardian

“A relaxing alternative to just about anything else you can do with an iPhone.” Wired

Eno began collaborating with musician / software designer Peter Chilvers on Will Wright’s computer game Spore. Their shared interest in generative music rapidly lead to the development of a prototype for Bloom in 2008. In the intervening decade, they experimented further with the field, expanding their catalogue of apps with Trope, Scape and Reflection. In that time Chilvers has also acted as an engineer and technical advisor to Eno on a number of other projects. A series of multi-speaker installations around the world laid the groundwork for 2016’s The Ship, and they premiered Bloom: Open Space, a mixed reality installation in Amsterdam in 2018.

In addition to his work with Eno, Chilvers co-founded the Burning Shed label and online store, toured with Underworld’s Karl Hyde as keyboardist and musical director, and has recorded instrumental albums and collaborations with vocalist Tim Bowness.

Cryptozoologic

playlist_add Wishlist

App Store Description:

Cryptozoologic is a collection of puzzling synths. A new instrument can seem like a puzzle, especially in the realm of modular electronic instruments. Cryptozoologic embraces this nature of synths and provides big and bizarre sounds once you figure out how to tease them out.

With the initial release you get three synths: Shempscape (bytebeat shufflebox), Nessie (rungle synth) and the Irish Yeti (Euclidean polyrhythms). Playing hints are provided in-app. You can also go deeper at cryptozoologic.org, which guides you through the backend of each synth.

Cryptozoologic is based on Fluxly technology, a musical physics looper where you create new instrument scenes by moving and spinning colorful Fluxum sound sample players. Cryptozoologic expands on Fluxly (fluxly.com), where the Fluxum controls can also be constrained as sliders, or act as inputs based on their on-screen coordinates.

More synths will be added to the app in the near future and the price will change to reflect that. We won't be doing in-app purchases so get in on the ground floor and get the value of being an early adopter.

Cryptozoologic can act as an Audiobus input.
