Plasma Sound

Plasma Sound


Plasma Sound is the most fully-featured and 100% free music instrument on the Android Marketplace!

Beautiful music instrument inspired by the Theremin, Continuum, Keyboard and Sequencer. Touch the screen and a note is generated. It's X-Axis (left-to-right) is pitch, which is designated by note and octave markings. It's Y-Axis (up-and-down) is up to you to control! Plasma Sound is incredibly configurable. Pick the note range, the waveform, cutoff, delay, tremolo, vibrato and more! You can even select between continuous mode (theremin-like), quantize mode (keyboard-like), and a hybrid.

Plasma Sound applies the same principals to the Sequencer to give you even more music creation abilities! Select a note to activate it, and drag up and down to select it's Y-value, controlling the same thing that the Y-Axis controls in the Keyboard section. Immediately you get an incredibly dynamic and versatile sequencer.

This app is known to have problems with older/lower end phones. The original Droid is known to work (just barely), but phones with lower specs will most likely run in to problems. Please don't leave a bad comment if your phone doesn't work; it's an intense app, intended for tablets (although an honest effort is put in to supporting older phones, I promise).

On top of all that is a beautiful visual based off of MSAFluid, The sound is generated by libpd.

Wow... I'm neither musically nor technologically inclined, but there's something in me that wants to play an instrument. And here I came across this app, put my finger to the screen - and the Disney-sci-fi-creativity-magic-Tinker Bell-loving side of me went "Wow!!!" Even if I turned off the incredible sounds, I'd still be hypnotized by those Fantasia colors! And I get to play with those incredible sounds too! And learning to use it's amazing as well! All for free - without ads!! Did I forget to say "Thanks!?"
