This is one of the coolest controllers I’ve seen for awhile. Although the app is free, it’s the physical controller that you’re gonna want to get your hands on, literally!
The AUUG Motion Synth transforms your iPhone or iPod touch into a new kind of musical instrument.
Your iPhone or iPod touch becomes an expressive controller that lets you play notes via touch and shape their sound through motion.
Select “Settings” > “Help / Upgrade” > “Quick Start Guide” in the Motion Synth App for instructions on how to get set-up to make sound.
Play any sound:
The AUUG Motion Synth tracks your movements and screen touches to ‘play’ other iOS sound apps, giving you access to a vast array of sounds and effects.
You can also play external devices like hardware synths or vocal harmonizers as well as control audio or visual software on a laptop (via wifi or cabled connections).
Use the Motion Synth App by itself or with a Motion Synth Grip:
The Motion Synth App has two modes:
1) Single-key mode: This Motion Synth App mode allows you to quickly engage with motion-based music control, and includes setup instructions for motion-controlling GarageBand (while GarageBand runs in ‘background mode’ on your iPhone/iPod touch). Note: Garageband is now free for most iOS users.
Select “Settings” > “Help / Upgrade” > “Quick Start Guide” in the Motion Synth App to get started using the Motion Synth with Garageband.
2) Multi-key mode: This Motion Synth App mode is designed to work with the AUUG Motion Synth Grip: a physical holder that securely attaches your iPhone or iPod touch to your hand, thereby improving the dexterity and accuracy with which you can trigger notes via the touch screen.
