SoundPrism Pro Now Available

Audanika has released SoundPrism Pro – a MIDI Controller for iOS, based on SoundPrism for iPad and iPhone.

It’s available now (App Store link) for $14.99.

See our interview with Audanika CEO Sebastian Dittmann for background on why they’re releasing a new app, instead of updating the original SoundPrism.

Features:

  • Core Midi Support via WiFi and USB (via the Camera Connection Kit)
  • Pitch Class Shifter: You can now create your own pitch space by changing pitch classes of the space

The original SoundPrism synth is now available for free (App Store link).

Here’s an example of SoundPrism Pro in action:

Roger O’Donnell rehearses new material for upcomign live shows.

This song starts with a sequence played using Soundprism on the iPhone to control the Moog Voyager, using Midi over Wifi. O’Donnell recorded loops into Ableton Live and then improvised melodies and harmonies over the top.

These videos demonstrate setting up WiFi MIDI on Mac & Windows:

  1. When I read about Apple's decision regarding the in-app purchase of midi support for Soundprism I was thinking it was a bit harsh; I do understand their (Apple's) reasoning, but it never bothered me, and would gladly have payed for the extra if it was something I needed or wanted.

    But now, all those customers who did already buy Soundprism and are interested in midi support are left to pay a second time, while those people who couldn't care less about midi get the app for free from now on.

    Great marketing Audanika, thanks 🙁

  2. So I bought the "original" Soundprism, which is now free, and I have to buy the new" Soundprism PRO??????

    What a frigging money grab.

    Absolutely bloody amazing.

    KEEP AWAY from these guys, there next "upgrade" will be $9.99 as well.

    Thanks for nothing.

  3. That seems harsh to me. You aren’t out anything and you don’t have to buy the upgrade unless it’s worth the money to you.

    How are developers going to make any money if musicians are too cheap to spend $10?

    Don’t you remember when a DAW was $800?

  4. I support a free version, but I think the original version should have *some* added features – as a subtle thank you to all of us that supported the original idea. What do you think?

  5. This isn't about being cheap. I've paid $20 +/- for quite a few music apps; including Konkrete Performer and touchAble (both worth every penny, btw, with developers that aren't trying to nickle and dime me to death and really understand how to properly value and price in app vs feature sets).

    No, this is about developers like Audanika, and now Peter Vogel from Fairlight, who utterly and completely don't have a fucking clue about the app market and all that goes with it.. Pricing, value, competitive range, longevity, etc etc. Clueless about each and every bit of it.

    Most importantly, they don't understand that we are a fickle bunch with long memories. If you try to fuck us, we'll remember…and never support you. Want to charge me for basic MIDI functionality? Fuck you. Want to ask an outrageous price because you think that you've got a luxury synth app for $50 that will set the world on fire? Fuck you.

    New and exciting music apps are being released at the rate of about 3 per week at this point. So, do and charge as you please. By this time next week I'll have forgotten all about you.

  6. I mean, its HIS app. He can charge $1000 if he likes.
    But it does not mean anyone will buy it.

    The market will tell if this was a good move or a bad move. Simple.

    And if your making music using technology, 9$ is not excatly a "lot" of money for anything.

  7. I can't stand most of you musician geeks out there who complain about anything and everything, especially when it has to do with money. I'm sure some of you have spent thousands of dollars over the years on your gear. But, since phone apps are basically changing the entire music making landscape, you piss and moan about an app that basically costs you the price of either a large cup of Starbucks or even a pack of cigarettes. I love it most though when you guys complain about apps that are FREE!!!

    But, why should any developer work for free? Who the hell in this world wants to work for nothing? You guys certainly wouldn't I bet. So, let's give this guy a break, ok? Did you even read the interview with Audanika CEO Sebastian Dittmann at the top of the page?

    So, instead of talking shit, learn the facts then make an assessment. And BTW, no one cares about your $10. I'm sure there's a lot worse things you could be spending your money on, and probably do.

  8. I bought SoundPrism Pro and it was worth every penny. I bought also the app djay a few months ago which was more expensive and – for me – a great mistake.

    I'm feeling lucky for the soundprism purchase 🙂

  9. This musical tool is worth every penny. It is very awesome and helps you become very creative with your music. Therefore, 10.00 isn’t a lot of money to pay to support these developers.

    This software is amazing and if you had to buy something like this for Windows PC it probably would cost you at least 99.99 instead of 9.99. I’m a profesional musician and have used Sound Prism at my gigs via midi connection through an iPad. It’s amazing how it really brings out my creativity.

    Thank you developers for such an awesome musical program!
