What's New

Fixes recording bug.

App Description

☢ Turn any recording into a unique synthesizer! ☢

Use the built-in presets or any recording to create sounds never heard before. Make a synth from opera, from screeching cats, from the latest radio newscast. Sample one hand clapping, or a tree falling in the woods; any sound will lend its unique properties to MegaCurtis!

Paste files from other apps, record through the built-in or an external mic, or transfer files through iTunes. Play them using the onscreen piano-style keyboard!

Granular synthesis works by combining many tiny grains of sound from an existing recording, creating new sounds with the textural properties of the original. Wavetable synthesis works by sweeping through a series of single-cycle waveforms.

MegaCurtis uses our hybrid of granular and wavetable synthesis, Gravetable™, combining the periodicity of wavetable synthesis with the chop and overlap of granular synthesis.


"Love the UI on this, reminds me of Grain Science, another fav of mine. if its wierd, strange and original, we love it!"
