SoundMashine is a granular synthesis based sound sampling and sequencing instrument.

Fully utilising touch gestures to provide a fast and easy to use compositional tool.

The app records sound using the devices built-in microphone, then using a beat slicing process divides the sound and automatically assigns the slices to each of the 16 screen tiles.

Each tile has its own set of parameters allowing you to adjust window size, playback rate, pitch, feedback, delay and delay modulation, all of which are easily set by the swipe of a finger. Each parameter listed can also be randomised between a set of assignable values. This flexibility allows you to build up a palette of sounds which can be stretched and processed to the extreme allowing rich and diverse creations far removed from the input source .. if so desired.

In addition the built-in sequencer allows you to record patterns of tiles that can be played back at different speeds, again using simple touch gestures. If you add in the parameter randomisation functions to this, diverse and changeable sequences can be produced.

With its flexibility for working with sound at different pitches, rates and sequencer speeds, SoundMashine lends itself well to a variety of compositional paradigms, from beat based through to drone or noise based music forms.
