Turn your phone or tablet into a musical instrument! RD4 – Groovebox is a music making app with virtual analog synthesizers, drum machines and effects.  Compose and arrange your music in real-time. Choose instruments individually for the 4 channels. Record live or set notes with the dedicated sequencer or piano roll of each instrument. This multi-touch enabled app makes it simple to invent unique loops and musical phrases. Manipulate the sound of the synthesizers by tweaking the oscillators, resonant filters and audio envelopes. Add audio effects like reverb, distortion, phaser, filter and delay to your sounds. Appropriate both for experienced musicians and beginners. Loops you’ve created and exported with RD4 can also be automatically integrated into mikrosonic’s audio mixer app SPC – Music Sketchpad.

Android music creation: Syntheogen Quick Start

May 22, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This demonstration video will help you get started. It will show you how to create a very simple loop, then it will use that loop to create the intro for a simple song.

NOTE: There is a small mistake at 1:47; where the captions mention ‘notes’, they should instead reference ‘beats’. This will be fixed soon!

For more help, visit syntheogen.com.

Syntheogen is a music sequencer and synthesizer for Android phones and tablets, developed from the ground-up to run smoothly on mobile devices and designed to be accessible to all users, even beginners. Syntheogen produces techno, drum & bass, and other electronic styles; it can also produce backing tracks with hip hop or synthpop sounds.

The current version is a beta release; it has been tested internally, but this is its first exposure to the public, so you might find a few bugs. A finished, ‘stable’ release will be available soon!

MikroWave Android sequencer – sketching a groove

August 26, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Quickly sketching a groove on MikroWave, the sequenced synthesizer for Android devices. The video shows how a bubbly bass line can be created and what modifiers are available to the synthesizer and drummachine.

You can get it on Google Play : https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.igorski.mikrowave

You can also test drive the FREE version (fully functional with the omission of saving and exporting of songs/audio). You can find it under “more apps from this developer” on Google Play.

MikroWave Android music app : a quick rundown

August 18, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

MikroWave, the sequenced synthesizer for Android developed by igorski.nl, being put through its paces. This video shows the generic sequencer navigation / use, introduction to the synthesizer and a lot of crude auditive side effects when used by a monkey.

You can find the application on Google Play here:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=nl.igorski.mikrowave

or visit its development website:

http://www.igorski.nl/mikrowave

Description of the app:

Ever fancied a sequenced synthesizer that fits in your pocket ? So did we.

MikroWave is a deceptively simple audio synthesizer ideally suited for quickly sketching out your musical ideas when on the move. Patterns can be created in the sixteen step sequencer, with no limit to the amount of bars your composition requires. Apart from the basic waveforms there is also a secondary oscillator which can be routed to different targets for harmonically enriching your initial sounds. You can shape the basic palette from friendly cheesy 80s trumpets via stuttering robots to totally unlistene-able sonic mayhem. If anything, you can sure annoy people on the bus.

For further improvisation there is a multi-touch keyboard allowing you to play along with the sequencer for quickly testing new ideas. When you’re pressed for time, you can save a song in progress and return to it later for finishing your idea, or plainly reliving your initial enthusiasm when creating that bubbly, acid bassline over that funky beat you had a brilliant destination for.

Apart from working from your mobile device, your songs can be exported in WAV format, uploaded to SoundCloud for direct sharing, or you can export your songs as MIDI data so you can continue work on your desktop computer / other hardware devices.

MikroWave is actively being updated, so keep your eyes peeled for notifications to be sure you’re getting all the latest features. You may also aid development by leaving suggestions and sharing your ideas on the website.

Just to be clear: MikroWave doesn’t rely on samples for sound generation, but actually synthesizes sound. For best performance your device should have a dual core CPU, though the newer generation of Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich-ready devices should have no problems running the application.
When in doubt, MikroWave is also available as a FREE version, note that saving of songs is disabled in this version.
