Spectral Harp for iOS


Spectral Harp is a sound toy that generates sound by letting you strum or tap strings that represent portions of the audible spectrum. You can produce more variations in sound by using the four sliders along the bottom to control spectrum density, pitch, decay, and a bit crush effect. Spectral Harp is no longer available on the App Store, but I hope to release a version for desktop soon.

WaveShaper for iPad

Image showing the WaveShaper app with the Sounds menu open.
Use one of 20 included sounds or load your own sounds.

WaveShaper is an audio synthesis app that lets you control a unique sound generating algorithm using a large XY controller. Use two fingers to control four parameters in real-time. This app is full of surprises and will create sounds unlike any you might create in a typical sound design plugin! For more info, sound samples, video, and screenshots, visit waveshaperapp.com. WaveShaper is no longer available on the App Store, but I hope to release a version for desktop soon.
