Cut-Up Machine

Posted by Mikers On November - 14 - 2011 ADD COMMENTS

Cut-Up Machine takes your sound recording, cuts it up into pieces and plays them back in random order.

Record your voice and Cut-Up Machine will rearrange your words to make them say something totally different! Record tracks of noise to make beautiful glitchcore soundscapes. Record nature sounds and make your own rainfall machine that isn’t an annoying repeating loop.

You choose the length of the cuts — from three seconds long (several words) down to just a tenth of a second (a fragment of a syllable).

You can get really creative and play two cut-up tracks at the same time for some very cool effects. And if you want more, you can instantly upgrade to four tracks with in-app purchase.

Make baby beats with My First Studio

Posted by Mikers On November - 4 - 2011 ADD COMMENTS

If your world evolves around making and listening to electronic music, chances are your offspring (if you’ve got any) will be in some way influenced by the sounds their hearing too at home. Now, if you want to take things one step further (like the duo behind this suite of apps), and want to actually get your ankle biters into experiencing digital music-making first hand, then these are probably the closest thing you’ll get, as they enable toddlers to engage with the musical apps, in a way that produces samples, beats, and synth sounds simply by interacting with a kid friendly interface.

The developers, Melbourne music producers Rebecca Charlesworth and Joseph Brady (aka Music Vs Physics), say their My First Studio is set to become a growing suite of musical apps for various aged children. The suite launches this week with three apps – Play Box, which acts like a sample playback machine, filled with familiar noises and sounds that toddlers will relate to. Beak Box, is a programmable drum machine featuring the sounds of chickens for the percussive sounds. And finally there my personal favourite, Scribble Synth, which is a waveform synthesizer, featuring four different wave forms, an arpeggiator, and an area to ‘draw’ sounds onto. I don’t know about kids, but I thought it was great fun to doodle around on.

Each app is the usual .99 entry level price, so if you have musically curious toddlers, these are a no brainer.
