Users are able to create their own instruments, which consist of a custom timbre and user-defined effects. A small variety of timbres are included: Sine, Square, Saw, Pulse, Noise (white)*, "Singing Saw", "Electric Eel", and "Starslide." These, as well as any user-created instruments, can be mixed and matched at different harmonics, amplitudes, and phases to create custom sounds.
Each synth has customizable effect parameters as well, including Envelope (attack & release), LFO (rate & depth), Delay (rate & decay), and Note Lag.
On top of creating alien instruments, you can also play them using the x-y axes of yr 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.
-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.
*I fully intend to make noise scale with frequency and actually become useful (e.g. "Red" Noise).
- SD card access: for saving instruments and recordings.
- Vibration: For haptic feedback.

What they say about TonePrint!
“Every once in a while, you plug into a pedal, and, suddenly, you’re transported to Tone Paradise. That’s the Hall of Fame Reverb. This is one of the smoothest, most cinematically musical reverb pedals I’ve ever heard. I’d have no problem dumping my fancy convolution reverb plug-ins in the studio, and use this pedal to process vocals, drums, percussion, strings, and more. I’m so taken with the Hall of Fame that I call it the “Motivator,” because every time I plug into it, its sounds inspire me to create new riffs and melodic lines.”
- Art Thompson (Guitar Player)
”Once the TonePrint is installed you’ll hear the way that particular artist wanted his pedal sound. It’s a great idea, works like a treat and indeed has loads of potential. The TonePrint concept is much more than a clever marketing idea. It’s a real treat to be able to play with the sounds that inspire some of these amazing players.”
- Dan Steinhardt (Guitar Buyer)
“My new favorite delay is TC Electronic’s TonePrint delay pedal that they just came out with; the reason why it’s my favorite is because they let me go in and design the parameters of what I wanted. It was fantastic!”
- Steve Morse (Deep Purple)
“TonePrint pedals give players the ability to explore sonic modifications on a whim and get a quick dose of inspiration.”
- Charles Sauflay (Premier Guitar)
“I like the idea that, using mystical TonePrint cyber-voodoo, I could set the range of each knob in such a way that each of those three sounds would be easy to access in real time, by turning each knob to an obvious setting like "12 o'clock" or to "all the way up". This way, you get a decent variety of tones at your disposal, all from a single pedal - and you can switch from one tone to another in a matter of moments.”
- Guthrie Govan (about his TonePrint for Corona Chorus)
- John Petrucci (Dream Theater)
- Paul Gilbert (Mr. Big)
- Steve Morse (Deep Purple)
- Ron ’Bumblefoot’ Thal (Guns ’n’ Roses)
- Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake)
- Orianthi (Michael Jackson)
- Guthrie Govan (Asia)
- Plus many others…
- …and the list is ever-expanding!

Other features include:
Configurable Effects Rack (Compressor, Distorter, Wah Wah, Flanger, Chorus, Delay).
Whammy Bar /Tremolo Bar.
Neck Scaling for large screens.
Option for 5 or 7 frets.
For feedback effect, turn the distortion all the way up, then hold a note for a long time -- then tilt the phone back toward you for the whammy effect to kick in. Now your smoking!
The app works well on multi-touch phones -- 3 or more touches are best, but it can be played at reduced speed on a one touch phone. The exception to this at present is the bend feature that currently only supports one touch for the duration of the bend.
The backing tracks are there as an instant jam-partner -- on the bus, in the airport just jam away and your phone never gets tired of playing chords. Of course, if you don't like the backing tracks you can just turn them off and solo over some song on the media player (may create lag on older, low-spec phones).
If you have any issues, or desire new features, please email suggestions to the Developer Email address.
You can also edit, cut, copy and paste, zoom and drag waveforms.
All the audio tracks are saved as standard wave files and mixed "on the fly" during playback.
Once you are satisfied with the recording you can send it by email with a touch of the finger. Or you can mixdown the recorded song in standard .wav or compressed format which you can later open with any 3rd party audio application or use to create an audio CD. You can also export the song in multitrack .sng format and open it with the desktop (Mac and Windows) version of n-Track.
How it works
• Record a base track (i.e. rhythm guitar) with the built-in mic (activate the metronome if you need it)
• Plug a standard headphone, record a solo or vocal track while listening to the rhythm track
• Press play to listen to the multitrack recording, use the mixer to adjust levels, pan, apply EQ etc.
• Email the recording directly from your device
• Unlimited tracks (the max number of tracks depends only on the device capabilities)
• EQ with Spectrum analyzer and Sonogram
• Import existing wave songs and clips
• Automate track volumes using volume envelopes
• n-Track is available for Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Exchange and share your projects on all your desktop and mobile devices
Available In-App purchases:
• 8 effects pack available as separate in-app purchase: Reverb, Echo, Chorus+Flanger, Tremolo, Pitch Shift, Phaser, Tube-Amp and Compression effects can be added to any track and master channel.
Notes on audio latency:
• Due to limitations in the Android audio subsystem n-Track can monitor the audio input with sufficiently low latency only on Android 4.2 and later and only on select devices which support audio fast-path (which include all Nexus devices). On other devices internal input monitoring while overdubbing has excessive latency, it should be instead done using an external mixer which lets you hear on the headphones the n-Track's audio output as well as the instrument input
You can turn on the following effects:
* Equalizer (Multi band)
* Bass boost
* Reverb: Small room, Medium room, Large room<, Medium hall, Large hall, Plate

Ever at a jamming studio or a friend's place, and you wanted to play a song, but you couldn't get the tone right? You'd need a computer to open the patch tones... and it would need to be plugged to your multi-effects pedal.
This app lets you view the tone, in similar arrangement to the pedal's layout. You can then dial in the tones and start rocking!
I did this on a whim since I discovered the RP-series patch files were simple, human-readable XML. Other DigiTech RP series multi-effects also use XML, so there is a chance I could support other pedals - email me if you'd like to help! (As I can only open rp255p files with X-Edit, since I only have the RP255.)
RP155 and RP250 patch files can be now be opened, but as a beta - email me if you find that it cannot show certain pedal values.
I hope to support more DigiTech RP multi-effects pedals, so this app's name may change in the future!
If you are having problems opening downloaded patch files from your stock browser, try downloading the patch files with Firefox for Android.
