Sound Doodle – Free Sound Design Tools For Mac

Sound designer Andrew Spitz has introduced Sound Doodle – a free desktop application for Mac that takes the act of doodling, and brings it to the world of sound. The interface elements are designed so that you can mold your sound by doodling.


  • Editing / routing / mixing
    • You have very basic editing features to crop, change playback direction and speed, loop, etc.
    • The routing allows you to draw the order that your sound travels through the effects modules.
    • To mix, each of your effects is visualized by a node. As you move your mouse over the nodes, you hear more or less of that effect.
  • Effects
    • There are four effects, where you change the parameters by drawing. The four are: stereo multitap [tapz], reverb [verbz], granular synthesizer [grainz], and a 5 bank comb filter/resonator [rez].

Note: In the Sound Doodle walk-through video, there are elements that aren’t in the current version of the app. Originally, there was a heavy social element to the app.
