If you're unfamiliar with synthPond I highly recommend that you watch the tutorial at :
It's the easiest way to get familiar with the software and understand what is possible. The first 5 minutes where I talk about basic features are relevant to synthPond Lite
synthPond is a relaxing spatial sequencer and generative audio toy inspired by the work of Toshio Iwai.
Unlike a normal sequencer where you place notes on a grid and a moving playhead plays them, in synthPond you place nodes in a field (pond).
Because the system is spatial, it's easily graspable and very intuitive, but also very deep. While it's easy for someone with no music knowledge to create a complex melody, synthpond is also suited for advanced musicians who are interested in generative musical composition.
Additionally, the audio generated can be placed in a 3D space, occurring around the listener coming from the relative positions of each node. This also allows for spatial features like orbiting to create a more generative composition.
synthPond requires headphones, without them you may hear distorted or limited audio.
synthPond was built with mobileFrameworks, an iPhone related c++ library for artists
synthPond Lite includes most of the features from synthPond 1.0, but lacks many of the more complex features of synthPond 2.0, which is available for $1.99 USD

Fun with surprising results
This app is very interesting and is capable of some very cool sound fields. I plan on upgrading to the full version to get the full features. Very east to use, intuitive and should be a fun app to watch grow and expand over time.
Excellent sound toy/music maker
If you've ever played Electroplankton for the Nintenfo DS, you know the kind of mesmerizing, soothing fun a "sound toy" or music synth can bring... With a playful approach to sound creation, synthPond allows you to play in your own sound world, adding notes and changing their characteristics at your whim. And as you start to get used to the interface, it becomes more intuitive, and soon you're just playing and an hour as gone by...!
Even better and more engrossing, is the full version of synthPond, adding mire in-depth features such as altering pitch, etc. of notes, as well as orbiting notes (which us awesome), and multiple other features.
It's a great application/game that will have you busy for hours... But hey, youre being creative, so there's no harm in that!
A great creation for electronic music learning
I find this application as what Brian Eno's Koan templates would have required to become a popular tool for electronic music creation.
I used to love Koan templates, but wouldn't dare to alter them freely because I was not able to envision how they worked. Well, I would alter some parts but with no logic...
This is a very clever visual representation of what is working in the sounds. It is like painting with audio!
This guy is a genius.
Thank you for sharing your vision!
