PhaseRings is a musical instrument for performing expressive music with touch gestures. Anyone can create a beautiful piece of music with our sound schemes and generative composition engine!
Each ring on the screen represents a different pitch, and you can tap and swirl on each ring to create combinations of long and short notes. The angle and size of your tap will change the timbre of the notes you create!
PhaseRings includes seven expressive "sound schemes" featuring percussive sounds like marimba and singing bowls as well as pure synth sounds like phase and string synthesis.
Three "compositions" of pitches are included in the app, but you can also create your own custom composition by choosing three base notes and scales, PhaseRings will do the rest, generating a series of great setups from the harmony you choose!

Ratings and Reviews
Onboard voices are cool, but this is a very fun to use midi controller that gives you lots of elegant spontaneity and controlled chaos.
This is a great app for my kids to create music on my phone, although I know that probably wasn't the intention! The sound choices are unique and appealing. I'd love to see a chromatic option in future updates.
After all the money I’ve spent on music apps, this is still my favorite. It’s super fun to play with and it sounds great.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
