"Part instrument, part interactive ambience, part subtly-changing New Age album, moodscaper's autoplay button is a wonderful introduction to its charms. With a single touch, it generates a musical artwork that's different every time."

"A worthy and lush-sounding musical companion."

Sound On Sound Magazine - Aug 2016

Moodscaper is a generative music app and a great personal companion for studying, providing non-intrusive headphone music at work, relaxing, meditating and even sleeping. Just launch the app, tap automatic play, and moodscaper will produce melodic, atmospheric and evocative ambient music in a “light”, “dark”, “space”, "happy" or “sad” mood.

Moodscaper is also an easy to use instrument for creating epic-sounding pads and effects as part of a larger iPad-based music-making setup. You can even create your own custom instrument by loading your own samples, and taking advantage of moodscaper's generative engine.

Main features:

· Sleep timer
· Five scale-based moods
· Variable dynamics - from mellow and sparse to full-on drama!
· Four loopers with optional sync
· Provides tasteful auto-accompaniment to your playing in realtime or in loops
· Hints displayed on keys that should sound good with root notes or chords
· Samples are randomly stacked for a bigger sound with more variation
· Effects section with filter, dual-delay and reverb
· Effects tweaks can be recorded in loopers
· Additional 20 key instrument for each mood
· Add your own samples and create your own mood-based instrument

Great app

Got this app recently along with the piano app. It's very easy to use and even a simpleton like me can use it. Only thing stopping it get 5 ⭐️ from me is no Audiobus support or the ability to record and export. As it is I just leave this and the pianoscaper app running at the same time in the background when I a relaxing. Give me either of the above and it's a 5 ⭐️ app. At least Mixtikl allows you to record and export, but that is far more complicated and fiddly to use. This in my opinion is the better app for it's ease of use and the sound is awesome 👏😎

I am so close to giving it 5 but without either those features I have to drop the score. Please include in a further update. I am gagging to give this the 5 ⭐️

Amended my review a bit. Thank you for the developer for up clearing up the IAA support. Audiobus would just be a bit better if you want to get multiple instruments and at the same time without a DAW. Still a great app and I shall look forward to giving the iaa a go.

Thank you to the developers for the reply and informing me of the IAA. Definitely a way to get me start. I said I'd give it stars if they allowed recording but put in audiobus and I will give it 6. Thanks again to the developers. It's nice to know they support their software and respond to their customers. 5 ⭐️ there 😎👍

Developer Response ,

Many thanks and glad you're enjoying the app. Sorry about the lack of AudioBus support right now. However, moodscaper does support Apple's Inter-App Audio standard (IAA) so it's possible to record moodscaper's audio in apps that can host IAA generators, such as AUM. No special setup required from the moodscaper side - it should just appear as an IAA source from the host app. Hope this helps.

The very best ..

.. apps Mood, Piano & Guitar Scapers if like me you wish to make a sound track to accompany a video.

I can do this whilst the video is playing, no other app that I as a non-musician have found can do this so comprehensively. I can create differing moods to complement the tone and subject of the video easily.

Superficially the Scaper’s may seem to be very simple but a few weeks of playing with them reveals subtleties that are not initially apparent. They are now like an orchestra at my finger tips. Cheers Rob.

PS [edit] A bonus that’s not mentioned in some of the reviews I’ve read is being able to use ALL the Scaper’s in AUM simultaneously if you wish.

PSS Should anyone think that I am being sycophantic, please be informed that I made a Weird Sound Generator and a Benjolin (Google) and used the free offerings from YT before I found Moodscaper. I’d been hoping that I would find something like it since 2016, so there! :-)

Lovely sounds

How rude of the reviewer who gave one star! There’s no pleasing some people. You can make some beautiful sounds with this app or press a button and let it create something different every time on its own. Even if you don’t know how to use it, just press anything randomly and it sounds magical. Great job developer!
