SynthScaper - Soundscapes synthesizer for iOS

SynthScaper specially designed for creating and experiments with ambient soundscapes in wide range from noises to melodic instruments and everything in between.

You can construct melodic pads or atonal soundscapes from different kind of built-in or downloaded samples by using all power of multi-layered oscillators, chains of filters and effects, envelope generators and low frequency oscillators. Or just use predefined scenes and creating your own scenes from library of oscillators presets.

Very flexible settings of each module give you a great opportunity for creating unique and colorful sounding from usual instruments or natural samples and adding automated changes and spatial effects for an endless variations. Different ways of assigning screen and MIDI keyboards to the oscillators provide very advanced features to control the sound. The on-screen keyboard is adapted to create special effects and varying the continuous textures and drones.

SynthScaper - Start with your own samples

It is not so difficult to create new scene with your own samples in SynthScaper. This app has many ways for downloading new samples from other apps or from desktop Mac / PC.

Enjoying the app very much. Midi seems a bit finicky to set up though.. I gather its not Audiobus 3 Midi ready? I tried using just Synthscaper in AB3 and Midiflow keyboard plugged into the midi portion of AB3 and Synthscaper didn't see it at all.

Wow sounds cool. I immediately got that Robert Fripp vibe by watching the first video. Price is a bit steep for an app but probably worth every penny. Bought too much apps lately but maybe I will buy it.

I have been using Synthscaper since its release and am a big fan (also of Soundscaper), but there is a problem: the new versions of Synthcaper do not appear as updates in the App Store. This means to use the new version, you have to backup your samples and patches, delete the app, reinstall, & then put your data back. Please sort this out. Thanks.

Using iOS apps for live performance

These several examples demonstrate how iOS apps can be used for live performance and studio recording together with other instruments and audio devices.

Usually for live performance very convenient use the MIDI controller for control the audio processing apps or simple MIDI keyboard for synthesizer apps. For the best audio preferable to use an external audio interface connected to the iOS device. With MIDI controller and audio interface you can conveniently use apps for live performance even on iPhone.

To connect several USB MIDI and audio devices to single iPad or iPhone you can use simple non-powered USB hub. Mostly any hub works without problems. But in this case you should use power adapters for your MIDI controllers and audio interfaces. Or you can use powered hub and connect to him any controller that can powering thru USB.

Also you need have "Lightning to USB Camera Adapter" to connect USB hub to the iOS device:

- Lightning to USB Camera Adapter (with this adapter iOS device will powering from battery)
- Lightning to USB 3 Camera Adapter (this adapter can power and charge iOS device)

In this setup were used two apps SynthScaper and FieldScaper on iPads, three DIY sound boxes and analog synthesizer with two analog effect units.
