Details have started emerging about a new app from BeepStreet – the developers of Sunrizer Synth (iPad / iPhone). Their latest creation is called Impaktor and is said to turn any surface into a playable percussive instrument.
From the BeepStreet Forum “You just slap your desk like a real drum, the transient acoustic signal is fed into the physical modeling engine and turned into the desired sound. That makes Impakton an extremely expressive instrument. Drop a coin on the desk, select any of the membramophones presets and you will hear the sound of the coin dancing on a membrane.”
The app will require headphones.
Currently they haven’t supplied any screenshots, but they have made available a series of audio demos (see below).
Impaktor should be released some time in July 2012, and will be available for iPhone 4,4s and iPad 2,3 devices. We’ll let you know as soon as we have more information!
