SoundScaper old but still good

SoundScaper is an experimental sound mini lab for creating unusual soundscapes, atmospheric textures, drones, glitches and noises based on circuit bending principles.

>>> More about SoundScaper

This was my first experimental app inspired by circuit bending devices and implementing some of these principles. It is well suited for experimenting with creating new and unusual sounds from ordinary samples.

Although it does not support audio units, it can work perfectly as an Inter-app Audio (IAA) module with any DAWs or hosts. And what's important, this app still works with minimum iOS 10, so you can use it on your older iPads where not many music apps still work.

Great new demo of SoundScaper from the channel The Sound Test Room.

Here's a great collection of use SoundScaper from Bill T Miller of Orgy Of Noise.

SoundScaper and BeatCutter just made for each other :)

BeatCutter - Rhythm slicing & recombining

BeatCutter (iOS, macOS, AUv3) is an experimental multi-channel app for slicing and recombining sound based on rhythm. In the center of the app is a matrix of sample cells with smoothly reconfigurable recording, playback and control busses. >>> More about this app

Some old demos

Did you know that the SoundScaper app has its own hardware prototype? Hardware DIY prototype of SoundScaper.

And this device also great with other apps.


  1. Would you consider a v2 version with AU support?

  2. Would you consider releasing a v2 version with AU support?

    1. I plan make new app based on this one with support audio units. But there is no exact date yet.

  3. I don't see this offered anywhere at the Mac App Store

    1. Unfortunately, this app designed only for iPad.
