App Description

*Winner of the ZKM App Art Award*
"OscilloScoop Is Interactive, Music-Making Eye Candy" -- AppAdvice.com
**Top Ten Music App on iPhone and iPad in the U.S. and many other countries.**
Tap, slide, and stretch your fingers over OscilloScoop to create original electronica dance music. With OscilloScoop you make musical grooves by gliding your fingertips over spinning crowns; then sequence them into a real-time performance with a few taps. As effortless as a toy, OscilloScoop offers a simplified set of the same tools used by electronic and dance musicians, with an intuitive interface inspired by video games and animation that opens up the creative process to everyone. OscilloScoop is an organic, generative way to make music in a process that’s more like dancing than composing.

OscilloScoop features continuous tone melody; 16- and 32-beat quantizing; low-pass filter; volume control; selection of six loopable beats in techno, hip hop, electro, and house; tempo control from 60 to 140 beats per minute; inexpensive in-app purchase of twenty additional beat sets; preset saves for live performance; and fine-grain editing when you tilt into landscape.

OscilloScoop is designed by Lukas Girling, a creator of interactive musical interfaces who has worked with world-renowned musicians and music technologists including Laurie Anderson and Max Mathews. The app was created in collaboration with interactive artist and programmer Scott Snibbe, author of the bestselling apps Bubble Harp and Gravilux; and Graham McDermott, noted video game and app developer.
