SpaceCraft Granular Synth

Mark Watt
SpaceCraft is a musical instrument.

With this instrument you can transform any sound into a playable musical instrument via a technique known as Granular Synthesis. With SpaceCraft, you can create textures, soundscapes and arpeggiated rhythms from everyday sounds such as your voice, ambient noise or the high quality built-in audio samples.

Tap the 'Import Audio' button (top left) to record audio via your device's microphone or load a file from your device (access* to iCloud, Dropbox, Google Drive, Audioshare etc.). Experiment with turning everyday sounds into unusual instruments. Try recording your voice or ambient noise!

Tap the 'rec' button (top right) to record your performance (maximum 20 minutes). Your audio will be saved as a .wav file on your device in a location of your choice.

Supports Inter-App Audio (IAA Effect). Compatible with Garageband.

New tempo sync feature: compatible with Ableton Link when used as IAA or AU inside an Ableton Link compatible host such as AUM, apeMatrix etc.

Partial support for AUv3: load as an AU Effect (see AU limitations at

Caution: when using AU, do not close the AU window whilst the File Chooser is Open! This will cause the app to become unresponsive. Either choose a file or hit cancel before closing the AU window.

Current limitations:
- state saving not supported
- presets not supported
- MIDI not supported

* iOS11 provieds equivalent folder access as the built-in iOS 'Files' app. iOS10 and below has limited access to folders (no Audioshare access)

What's new in version 1.0.4
AU File loading robustness improvements:
- fixed bug where if multiple AU instances are open, the file chooser appears in the first window
- show dialogue in file loading panel which states that the AU window should never be closed if the file chooser (white background) is open (this only shows when it is loaded as an AU)
