Touchscaper is an instrument designed for anyone who wants to make music on their iPad simply by touching the screen.  You don’t have to be a serious musician to enjoy touchscaper, but if you are, touchscaper is highly configureable under the hood.

Main features:

• Multi-touch based interface with “radar”, “ribbon” and keyboard surfaces
• Touch the screen to play a note, move your fingers to change the sound
• Semi-generative engine selects the “good notes” for you
• Touch movement can control volume and pan for each individual note
• Total control over chords, keys and scales (fully chromatic)
• Multiple chords can be generated from keys and scales to create “scenes”
• Over 30 built-in sounds can be combined in 2 layers to create “instruments”
• Built-in sounds include samples from moodscaper, pianoscaper, numerous analog synths and guitars
• Comes with preset example scenes and instruments
• Random instrument generator function with one tap of a button
• Hold and orbit modes for hands-free evolving soundscapes
• Ribbon style keyboard with touch vibrato
• Chord looper with Ableton Link support
• Arrangement view for longer / more complex chord progressions
• 16 step probability-based sequencer for touch, drums, percussion and synth automation
• Supports file sharing for scenes and instruments
• Built-in effects including ping-pong delays, reverb, limiter and EQ
• Supports IAA (Inter-App Audio) as a generator

************************
PLEASE NOTE that touchscaper currently does NOT have MIDI or AUv3 support, although these are candidates for future updates.

There are several demo videos in circulation which should give you a better idea of what touchscaper can do - just search for “touchscaper”.

Version 1.3.1 release notes

Mostly small fixes and tweaks: • added arrangement option to stop sequencer at end of section (toggled from go-to button) • fixed sequencer bug where changing patterns didn't recalculate notes to match first chord change • fixed bug in simple scene view where you couldn't always delete the first chord • arrangement beat and bar durations are mutex - hopefully slightly less confusing (could still be better) • scenes that include arrangements / sequence patterns file size reduced significantly • max master limiter settings not so severe (4.5dB boost vs 6dB) • tiny tweaks to master EQ around highs / 18KHz band • fixed a potential edge case crash in sequencer (hopefully... please let me know if you experience crashes) Work on MIDI related features is underway, but wanted to get these fixes and tweaks out in the meantime. Hope you're enjoying the app! -Rob
