Chalk it up to genes, but I’m not a musician that people would pay money to see and hear. Actually, my piano is so bad that I’d probably have more financial success where people would pay me not to play.
I have a few music apps and recording apps on my iPhone but I don’t know exactly how to describe the Musyc app. It’s like using touch and onscreen shapes to play music instead of a keyboard.
Music Of The Future?
Musyc is the strangest music app to grace the iTunes App Store, or it’s the wave of music of the future. Seriously, I don’t know which, but I’m intrigued.
You won’t see a piano keyboard on the screen. But you can draw shapes and create music while animation bounces around.
Musyc comes with 64 different instruments which are organized into 16 groups. Onscreen controls include an audio track mixer for pitch, length, pan, mute, and level.
There are two effects channels for Delay, Overdrive, Reverb, Dalek, and Compressor. And, there’s a motion recorder which records your physical touches on screen and an engine which translates the motion to sound.
None of what I’ve just described actually does justice to what it takes to create music on Musyc. Yes, a video is worth more than a thousand words.
Is that cool, or what?
Musyc lets you play music by touching the iPhone or iPad screen, but adding shapes gives you even more options.
The motion recorder records your touches as music. Use it to import audio samples to integrate. Musyc supports Midi sync and AudioBus, and sound can be exported as high quality or compressed files for DropBox, Mail, iTunes, even SoundCloud.
It’s like a mashup of a piano and drawing pad but the action all happens on the touch screen. Incredible.
