About this app

Sputter is an easy to use but capable mobile music making app. It has a mobile friendly user interface and requires no previous knowledge to create great tracks.

Instead of emulating traditional desktop music software it uses a mobile friendly approach inspired by more recent mobile offerings. At the same time it is not just a toy, and by exploring the help slides and the app itself you will discover several features uncommon in similar music making apps.

Some of those include:

* Feature complete grid style sequencer.
* Mark different sections of your song with various symbols so they are easily found.
* Choose from 16 different musical scales.
* Built in synthesizer/sampler with ADSR, filter, LFO and other good stuff.
* 10 built in effects: Gainer, Distortion, Bitcrusher, Filter, 3 Band EQ, Tremolo, Flanger, Chorus, Delay, Reverb.
* Effects and synth parameters automation with real time recording.
* Easily change and update whole parts of your song at once.
* Several different time signatures (2/4, 3/4 etc).
* Record any sound through microphone or default input device and use it as an instrument.
* Import your own wave files to create your own instruments.
* Export your song as MIDI or WAV for easy sharing and importing to other audio or video software.
* Export and import songs for sharing and collaborating with other Sputter users.
* Export and import instruments for sharing with other Sputter users.
* No ads.
* No unnecessary permissions.
* No subscriptions.

Sputter is proudly built using several open source technologies, including Pure Data and Faust for the audio engine and LibGDX for graphics and UI.

This is a great app, even better developer. I have tried using other apps as a creative outlet, for my music. i am thoroughly impressed not only wulith the capability of this app but the resulting audio quality of both .mid and , .wav formatted exports. fast customer support, who are also willing to do whatever it takes to keep a customer happy. 10 stars!!! I definitely reccommend this app.

For anyone wondering, the save functionality in Sputter will get an overhaul to work around new file access restrictions in Android leading to lost files when an app is uninstalled. Read more on our blog: https://casualcomputing.info/posts/user-lost-all-files

Do not be fooled by the simplicity of the UI with a minimal number of controls; the program is quite deep. A full-fledged multi-track piano roll with the ability to snap notes to a scale. A plethora of hq instruments in which you can edit the ADSR of the amp/filter, LFO, tune, and make your own copies. All basic FX are here and every parameter of them can be automated. Plus, a rare feature for Android sound apps - latency compensation. The program has never crashed on any of devices.

Sputter fits the bill perfectly as an app for quick on the go sessions to jot down musical ideas (helped by the variety of scales and time signatures available). Everything works as expected, the interface is intuitive, the sounds are good and being able to create instruments is an added bonus. There are hidden depths to this app of which the highlight for me is the ability to automate so many parameters. I’m looking forward to updates, as the developer is responsive and open to suggestions.
