- added file system access for transferring ponds from one device to another. ( Copy all the files out of synthpond in the apps section of your device in itunes and place them onto your receiving device the same way )
*new! PureData patch for synthPond is available on the synthPond website. thanks to Chris Randall of Positron Records!*
synthPond is a relaxing spatial sequencer and generative audio toy inspired by the work of Toshio Iwai.
Unlike a normal sequencer where you place notes on a grid and a moving playhead plays them, in synthPond you place nodes in a field (pond).
Because the system is spatial, it's easily graspable and very intuitive, but also very deep. While it's easy for someone with no music knowledge to create a complex melody, synthpond is also suited for advanced musicians who are interested in generative musical composition.
Additionally, the audio generated can be placed in a 3D space, occurring around the listener coming from the relative positions of each node. This also allows for spatial features like orbiting to create a more generative composition.

synthPond requires headphones, without them you may hear distorted or limited audio.
synthPond was built with mobileFrameworks, an iPhone related c++ library for artists
