I’ve just finished work on a new musical instrument for Android devices. It’s called Circular Sound, and it’s aimed at people who like noise.
Circular Sound is similar to my other recent mobile instruments in that it combines a sampler with custom digital signal processing, and a unique interface. Sounds can be loaded from a configurable directory on the device, or you can play around with the default sounds, which are from freesound.org. Then they are loaded into spheres that are arranged in a circle on the left half of the screen. The left half of the screen is the source audio mixer, while the right half is used to control effects. The effects include waveshaping, granulation, delay, and modulation.
The goal of Circular Sound is to give a simple access point into generating various types of noise that is related in some way to the source sounds provided by the user.
Download it for free on Google Play and shoot me a comment to let me know if you make something cool with it!
UPDATE: I have been unable to continue maintaining Circular Sound, so it is no longer available.
