The latest generation of our Sound Scope synthesizer! Now with a completely rewritten audio engine, Kuzmoscillatorâ„¢ modulator, echo, envelope, arpeggiator, more range, and higher resolution!
IMPORTANT: Although Space shares its lineage with other Sound Scope products, its user interface has been almost completely changed. Please read the instructions below and check out our website for more details and demos!
Space launches with the performance screen where you simply touch the central column to play notes. At first, you will be able to play a huge range of notes, from the lowest bass to the highest soprano. You can use a pinching motion on the ruler on either side of the screen to zoom into a particular pitch region for more precise control. Use two fingers to drag either ruler up or down to change the pitch region you are playing. Try using more than one finger on the central column; Space will step through all of the pitches you have pressed! The two large colored triangles take you to waveform editing and modulation screens.
Use one finger to sculpt the waveform. Try to draw a sawtooth shape for rich harmonics. Draw a sine wave for smooth tones. Use a square shape to create hollow, flute-like tones. Most importantly, experiment! Press the large colored triangle to return to the performance screen.
Here you can change the arpeggiator and echo mode, and change their timing. With the arpeggiator on, you can use several fingers at once on the performance screen, and Space will repeatedly step through these notes. With the arpeggiator turned off, you can play Space one note at a time like you would a keyboard.
Try setting the tempo very low with the arpeggiator off and the echo on! The echo uses the same clock, so you will get a very deep echo.
The Kuzmoscillatorâ„¢ modulator is an LFO control for pitch and volume. Drag across it horizontally, and you will cause the sound to go up and down in volume. Drag vertically, and you will do the same to pitch. The distance of your drag determines the AMOUNT of variation, while the speed of your drag determines the SPEED of variation.
Finally, the envelope lets you control the onset of notes. Putting the slider in its leftmost position will cause notes to begin quickly, while moving the slider to the right will cause notes to slowly fade in.
