Weird music app ShapeSeq 2.0 update adds recording, export, iPad, retina

in Music (F)

[] London, United Kingdom - apfrod announces the updated ShapeSeq for iOS. Since the sequencer-synth hybrid made its debut in 2009, users have been begging for the ability to record their performances. Now with version 2, released Monday, that wish has been granted. Users can record to lossless wav files which appear in iTunes file sharing. Even better, they can copy the audio to the iOS clipboard from right inside ShapeSeq and paste it into other music apps like Garageband to take their sound creations further.

Version 2 is available in the iOS App Store for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

ShapeSeq is an electronic musical instrument that takes a new approach to sound and music making. Choose from four sound shapes and move them around the screen to change pitch and volume. All movements are instantly played back on a loop. Change the size and number of steps in the loop while it is playing to find strange new patterns. Various techniques are possible: for example, recording at different loop resolutions on the same loop makes interleaving patterns.

If you record any interesting sounds, discover new techniques of playing or post videos of ShapeSeq in action, Paul at would love to hear from you.
