SynthPond 2.0, an update to the iPhone ambient spacial synth, is now available in the Apple App Store. It’s a free update for registered users.
Check this previous post to see developer Zach Gage demonstrating the new features.
synthPond is a relaxing spatial sequencer and audio toy.
Unlike a normal sequencer where you place notes on a grid and a moving playhead plays them, in synthPond you place nodes in a field (pond).
There are two major types of nodes. -Circular nodes release waves at certain intervals. -Hard-edged nodes release waves when waves hit them
Moving these nodes about allows you to create complex and relaxing melodies.
Additionally, because all the nodes are spatially organized, the audio generated can also be placed in a 3D space, occurring around the listener coming from the relative positions of each node.
synthPond was built with mobileFrameworks, an iPhone related c++ library for artists
