Created for Canadian contemporary classical music organisation, Soundstreams, SoundMakers is an interactive music creation app that allows users to create and share two-minute compositions based on samples from Soundstreams’ archive of commissioned works.
The simple, tactile interface is made for intuitive drag-and-drop music arrangement. There is a slew of powerful on-board effects such as reverbs, delays and pitchshifters that can be applied to any sample as well as a global automation page which can be used to add effects to the entire mix.
Once you’ve finished your composition you can upload and share it via SoundCloud.
The app uses libpd for the audio engine with a custom set of effects and functions for optimised performance.
