The principle of Soniface is completely new: Every gridline makes a tone and can be triggered by touch.
Soniface is useful as experimental melody and rhythm instrument, to catch song ideas, create beats, make futurist soundscapes or even audiovisual performances & club visuals.

An interface between man and machine for sonification of the self: That sounds like esotericism.

GEOMETRIC SYNTHISIZER/ RHYTHM COMPOSER/ SOUNDSCAPE SAMPLER
Soniface works generative, what means that the sound is ever-different and changing. You do everything by yourself, also if you just choose an arpeggiator.
The basic principle is a movable grid: Each grid line is linked to a tone. The grid shape and movement is related to the sound characteristics. Colors are associated with notes and chords.
Several interfaces offer new ways to common audio production methods: A drum generator to make beats or a sampler to create looping soundscapes or record own samples by the internal microphone.

MORE ABOUT MAZETOOLS SONIFACE
The project did start 2012 with the intention to incorporate aspects of music therapy to sound creation and was realized by a shape based visual synthesizer. Over the years selected audio production elements have been redesigned and integrated in certain ways.
There is a lot to come in future! With the purchase of Soniface, you directly support the further development. Our small team works permanently and with great passion to improve the quality and add new functions!
