So in the world of making music on iOS devices there are a slew of great apps to play with. Now when I say play, I also mean do serious music making with!
Recently Alex Matheu released a brand new app called Sliver. In short, Sliver is a powerful tool for soundscape and sonic texture creation.
Another way to describe this app is as a tool to create very interesting and ever changing textures that will fascinate you and keep you playing for hours! Here is the list of ideas you could use Sliver for…
- Sound Design / Sound Effects
- Unique Sonic Textures
- Cinematic Sound Elements
Take a look at the pic to the left. You see the heart of this app pretty quick, although it may not be immediately evident what you see. There are four independent slots (slivers) where you can insert audio and then change those audio slivers in many different ways. You can do this live or automate it. You have filters, XY pads, effects, dynamic physics, audio share, audio copy, and audio bus. How’s that for some fun!
The good news is that Sliver is being offered at 33% off currently as an introductory price. That price is quickly coming to an end though! Like this weekend…. If you like creating music and messing around with being creative on your iPad this is a no-brainer purchase at $3.99!
