New Synth Machine App, Fractal Bits, Offers More Than 4 Billion Sounds

Alexander Zolotov has introduced Fractal Bits, a drum synth app for iOS and Android that offers over four billion unique sounds, created with fractal algorithms.

Each set of 12 drums sounds corresponds to a code of 8 characters that you can save/copy/paste as plain text.


  • Audio Unit Extension (AUv3), Audiobus;
  • search for new sounds with three buttons: next random set, edit code, previous set;
  • three types of keyboards for live drumming: on-screen buttons, PC keyboard, MIDI input;
  • six additional processing parameters + control of all parameters via MIDI;
  • real-time audio recording to WAV (32-bit);
  • export to: WAV (one file or a set), SunVox (samples + effects in one file), text clipboard;
  • the LCK button freezes individual drums – they will not change during the search for new sets;
  • Wi-Fi export/import.

It’s available now for US $1.99.

  1. Four billion sounds for $1.99 sounds like a steal until you realize that 200 million of them are “Seinfeld” slap basses. Actually, this seems well thought out, even if it is on the quirky side. Its hard not to like a giant drum kit that has “controlled chaos” written all over it. If you’re into anything remotely electro, avant-garde-scented or glitchy, this will be a WIN.

  2. this is the fastest i´ve ever bought an app, using ipad since gen1. incredible, finally someting fresh new and so accessible.
    zolotov you are a genius and i love you.
    went out and got the other stuff you have in the app store, just cuz.
    hope this gets supported through the ios iterations since i intend to rely on it.
    massive thanks.

  3. Anyone else think sound 357,104,882. sounds remarkably similar to 2,994,107,682?

    All joking aside, it makes some wicked sounds. Like Kraftwerk in a box!

  4. Bought it the day it came out. Giant beautiful waveform generator. Chap stick at the quick mart cost me more than this awesome endless sound source.

  5. id rather the dude focus on making Sunvox about 100x less obtuse and more user friendly, since it has so much potential

    oh well… cant argue with $2
