About this app

Inspired by the Korg Kaossilator and the Moog synthesizer, Saucillator transforms mobile devices into a platform for creating and playing digital synthesizers. It uses the touchscreen to manipulate oscillators and effects, and it also allows for live-looping and recording.

Users are able to play custom synthesizers using the x-y axes of the touchscreen. The x-axis corresponds to amplitude (volume) and the y-axis corresponds to frequency (pitch). Playback can also be looped, recorded, and EQed using a Parametric EQ.

On top of performing, Users are able to create their own custom synthesizers, which consist of a custom timbre and user-defined effects. A small variety of timbres are included: Sine, Square, Saw, Pulse, Noise (white)*, Theremin, "Singing Saw", "Electric Eel", and "Starslide." These, as well as any user-created synths, can be mixed and matched at different harmonics, amplitudes, and phases to create custom sounds.

Each synth has customizable fx parameters as well, including Envelope (ADSR - attack & release), LFO (rate & depth), Delay (rate & decay), and Note Lag.

Other abilities:
-Choose scale: Pentatonic, Major, Minor, Blues, or Chromatic
-Choose the base note for the pad.
-Control the grid size.
-Record to the SD card.
-Toggle visualizations. More to come here.

Notes:
*I fully intend to make noise scale with frequency and actually become useful (e.g. "Red" Noise).

Permissions Needed:
- SD card access: for saving instruments and recordings.
- Vibration: For haptic feedback.

Special thanks to Garrett Langley (http://dribbble.com/glangley) for helping with design and general usability.

Saucillator 2.0 Buffalo. I think it's the sauce, boss!

Even though it's not perfect, all things considered, this is the best app of its type. I've tried them all but yet to find one to match this. Sounds great, plenty of peramiters to change to make unique sounds. It has a proper record feature, not record through device mic! It's ridiculous the amount of storage it uses... Not even 1MB! 660KB I think. It has a nice looper feature. The layout is nice. It's easy to understand. Just a little static being picked up here & there. It is a nuisance. Fix?

It's absolutely the best of its type. It's not perfect but it's extremely useable & more fun than it has any right to be. As a musician/producer, I can see me finding a use for this app on a professional level. The record feature is a small but important addition allowing you to use this app in collaboration with other music production apps. It takes up no memory space at all & the ability to be able to tweek the sounds only adds further to this apps usability. We'll done
