scriptSonic Combines The Power Of Computer Music With The Immediacy Of A Touchscreen

Developer Jonathan Mackenzie shared this sneak preview of scriptSONIC – a programmable musical instrument for the iPad.

According to Mackenzie, scriptSONIC combines the open-ended creative power of a programming language with the expressiveness of a touch-screen.

You can use scriptSONIC to:

  • generate and control interactive musical patterns using simple JavaScript code;
  • make interactive rhythms;
  • send and respond to MIDI messages;
  • explore notes, chords and scales;
  • manipulate samples and live sound input; and
  • record the results.

Details on pricing and availability for scriptSonic are to be announced.

  1. Atonality always sounds weird to me.
    I get the same result letting my cat walk on my master keyboard.
    But surely the cat is a more expensive tool, and doesn’t know javascript code.

  2. I will almost certainly buy this (as long as it’s not priced something outrageous like $30+).

    Lots and lots of JavaScript developers out there.
