SoundScaper Update Adds Deep MIDI Control & More

soundscaperSoundScaper – an experimental sound mini lab for creating soundscapes, atmospheric textures, drones and glitches – has been updated with deep MIDI control and more.

With filtering and mixing of up to three oscillators, you can create soundscapes, textures and drones for your music. With complete MIDI control, this application is now comfortable to use for real-time sound creation and live performance.

Here’s what new in SoundScaper 1.2:

  • Complete MIDI control for all faders, knobs and other modes.
  • Possibility to create MIDI control maps for different controllers.
  • Two different MIDI devices can be used to control.
  • Quick MIDI learn mode for each fader in advanced control panel.
  • Change type of faders on the oscillator main panels.
  • Copy and Paste operations for oscillator parameters through text clipboard.
  • Copy and Paste operations for scenes through text clipboard.
  • Possibility to send scene parameters through Email.
  • New features for automation in advanced control panels.
  • Additional samples in built-in samples library.
  • Built-in description updated.
  • Minor bug fixes.

SoundScaper is available in the App Store for US $7.99.

  1. Does any body have experience with an ipad 2 running this app? I read that a 3th generation ipad is recommended but i intend to use this without the interapp audio stuff.

    1. It’s working fine for me with ipad2. Also, i think the general consensus is that there isn’t much performance difference between the 2 and 3, cause any extra power the 3 might have is used up by the retina display…

    2. FWIW, I cooked up a bunch of great soundscapes while on a flight a couple weeks ago with this app and an iPad 3. Worked great, even with output several minutes long.

  2. Does anybody actually understand what this does? It makes some half decent noises, but like most things circuit bent, its near impossible to control with any logic

    Could someone explain please?

    1. It creates soundscapes. It’s experimental, but does have a great amount of control to it, especially with the MIDI parameters. It’s pretty awesome.

    2. Turn off everything but one sound source. Then experiment with each modulator one by one to understand what everything is doing and how they interrelate. If you go with the example patches and start fiddling you will get neat sounds, but probably never really understand what his happening because it’s a fairly complex and deep app.

  3. I think this particular app is unique in that, like circuit-bending itself, you can just kind of poke around and get kind of random surprises. The documentation built in is pretty good and is nicely written, but it sometimes glosses over things (like the memory addresses, logic and clock sync functions) that need a little more explanation for most people.

    It explains what’s happening very concisely, but in many cases, the explanation uses jargon that isn’t readily understood. I’m not having a go, just saying a “dummies manual” could be helpful for some of us.
