SpaceCraft by Mark Watt is a new granular Synthesizer application for iOS with sample import function that allows musicians to create unlimited soundscapes.
Mark Watt released today SpaceCraft, a new granular Synthesizer for iOS. Samples can be important via a sample import feature using apps like Audioshare, Dropbox…) Created sounds can be recorded inside the app or with Inter-App-Audio in another recording app. The latter is preferable here because SpaceCraft can only record performances up to 120 seconds.
Unfortunately, I can say something more precise about this app. The developer shared only few informations about it. I hope that the developer will update the app with a AUv3 version.
SpaceCraft is a musical instrument. Transform any sound into a playable musical instrument via a technique known as Granular Synthesis. With SpaceCraft, you can create textures, soundscapes and arpeggiated rhythms from everyday sounds such as your voice, ambient noise or the high quality built-in audio samples.
Tap the ‘Import Audio’ button (top left) to record audio via your device’s microphone or load a file from your device (supports iCloud, Dropbox, Audioshare etc.). Experiment with turning everyday sounds into unusual instruments. Try recording your voice or ambient noise! Tap the ‘rec’ button (top right) to record your performance (maximum 120 seconds). Your audio will be saved as a .wav file on your device in a location of your choice.
Supports Inter-App Audio (IAA). Compatible with Garageband.
SpaceCraft is now available for $2.99 USD and is compatible for iPhone and iPad. An Android, PC & Mac version is also coming soon.
