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”
• 40 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
• "jam grid" sequencer view for live performances
• 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

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

Version 1.3.4 release notes

• Additional "707", "727" and "106" drum, percussion and synth sounds • Additional "106" based "SMARP" sounds (tap the "SMARP" button to cycle through) • New "PanUp" touch sequence mode • New sequencer grid view for live performance / jamming! Tap the grid icon on the main looper view Please also note the following changes: The sequence "Mute" part option is no more - simply tap the active sound to mute that part. The swing "dancing people" button on the main looper has been replaced with a sequence grid view button. Open the tempo view to adjust swing settings. I hope you like the new grid view - I think it's a lot of fun! I'll try and do some proper tutorials (much requested!), although MIDI features (in progress) are now top priority. The user guide on touchscaper.com should also be up to date by the time you read this - sorry it was getting a little behind, version-wise. Many thanks for all the support, encouragement and great reviews - much appreciated! -Rob
