Sound 8 is an interactive 8 track sound looper. In this application, each sound is represented by a circle of a different color. Circles are moved by acceleration, touch input and gestures, and can bounce off the screen edges. This movement in two dimensional space alters the sounds pitch and volume.
Swipe gestures control the accelerometers speed, and allow for randomization of pitch and volume. In addition, each sound’s panning can individually be set. It is also possible to stop acceleration completely, allowing you to drag circles manually or let them float in zero gravity space. Finally, in ‘automove’, circles are automatically positioned at a random interval.
You can assign a default sound or any of your own imported sounds* to each circle. To see an example of how to import your own sound files please visit the sound8 support page.
*supported file format is 16-bit mono WAV or AIFF.
maximum sound file size (per circle) is 5.3MB, or ~1minute @44.1kHz 16-bit mono wav.
