- I dropped the price of synthicity itself to $1.00 , so it's a little more sinthle.
- My upcoming app Synaesthesia is getting a name change because there's already one in the app store (that is not as good suffers from design-o-rrhea). It will probably be called See Hear (like the old Zine store).
- Oh how I want to make ellipsynth sound a little better.. but maybe I'll just shove it out there anyway.
- I'm trying to get a new setup for making demo and performance videos of these apps.
synthicity itself 1.2 is in the app store!
synthicity itself is a little less simple, and is now available in the app store as release 1.2. update it! i am working on some new demo recordings, and i actually have a 1.2.1 in the works with what i hope are some optimizations and tweaks. also: it's on sale for $1 until the end of the wwdc (june 17 2012).
Synthicity itself 1.2
I'm fiddling with synthicity itself a little .. I don't know why ... but it's getting a timbre picking button, the ability to save and load patches (hmm), from and to the web and record to iTunes documents and pasteboard.
SOme of this is in there. I don't really want to mess with the simplicity, but a little more oomph would be nice!
synthicity itself 1.0.1
Well, it's been a week, and so it's time for another update to synthicity.... it'll still be simple though.
Among some bug fixes, there are a few features thrown in:
- polyphony expanded to 32 voices. I found that at 8000 and 11025 Hz, synthicity can keep up with this polyphony (you need it if you make the decay really long).
- scales now add a pentatonic minor to the mix, and a "surprise" which is a random bunch of just intervals.
- you can reset the sample rate while the app is "sleeping" in the quick launch.
I'm looking into some way to detect when it can't handle the polyphony load and starts making the UI stutter and the sound stammer.
at 44100, it's about 12 voices, and it gets better as you drop the sample rate.
synthicity is doing nicely
synthicity itself is getting some nice comments in email and on the web.
i hope it catches on, it's lots of fun.
