New iPad apps: Strange Attractor and Voco

May 30, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Strange Attractor is a truly novel sound generator based on chaos theory. The outcome of PhD research, it uses a feedback system to process and generate sound. Unlike conventional synthesis techniques, sounds emerge in surprising and unexpected ways, almost having a life of their own. By moving your finger on the screen, you can navigate through a space of evolving sounds, that build-up, pulsate, and decay. Sound input through the microphone or headphone socket can be processed into fractal textures, or will trigger and control oscillations.

Voco is a touch controlled phase vocoder. Sounds can be manipulated by touching the screen, and played like like an instrument. Time is represented on the horizontal axis, and pitch on the vertical. The yellow bars display the sounds intensity. Sounds can be sampled through the microphone or headphone socket, or loaded via iTunes. There are also features to constrain the pitch to different scales, and to glide the playing point around the screen to make rhythmic loops.
