Ratings and Reviews
No longer broken
I had previously written a 4-star review of this ap because it is a very creative and innovative approach to sound design. I really LIKED it (just as I have really liked all of the aps by this developer).
HOWEVER ...suddenly my FieldScaper on both my iPads was broken.
I have FieldScaper on two iPads: an iPad 4 running iOS 10 and an iPad Pro 12.9 “ running iOS 11.2.1. On BOTH iPads for reasons unexplainable by modern science, FieldScaper would not load any stored “Scenes” (the combination of audio files and preset effects). When I tried, nothing would change - all of the files and presets remain unchanged regardless of which Scene I tried to load. No one else seems to have had this problem.
The developer tried to solve the problem, but apparently could not duplicate it. Kudos for the effort...
That was THEN this is NOW ...
All that has changed with the latest version. With the 2.0+ releases, this problem has been fixed. I have still lost all my previous presets and all audio files (both factory and my own). But now I can confidently create new materials and actually save them.
The additions in this version are also a great advance and push my opinion of FieldScaper solidly into the five star range. The parametric EQ sequencers (three - one for each “oscilator”) and new synchronizing abilities have elevate FieldScaper beyond its previous status as one of the most innovative music aps available.
Developer Response ,
Presets and scenes options work as usually without any problems on any iOS. Please read build-in manual which available in the app by button "?" to learn how to use these options. Or you can download PDF manual from app site. Also if you have any questions you can contact directly on app site thru feedback form.
I was wrong with my last review
I guess the software was acting weird for a bit when I was trying to make a new track after a long period of artist block, but after a few relaunches of the app everything worked as expected. This is an extremely intuitive app which allows me to create rich and full tones of other worldly origins. Almost every parameter can be modulated with lfo's allowing a generative movement of drones fading in and out, morphing, and decaying. I love this app to death. I am completely satisfied with this purchase after so many year (it's only really been like 2, but still). I hope this app is supported for the years to come.
Hours of fun
This is easily one of the most well-thought out, intuitive, and capable noise/music apps I’ve seen. Requests to developer for help have been quickly answered. I, too, hope it is supported in perpetuity.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
