The Pro version represents all capabilities of our yearlong development in terms of a creative progress. The Pattern Mode is the essential feature in the context of musical and performative application. Therefore you have a simple, editable list of Patterns on the main screen.

The Pattern Mode enables to build scenes with several instruments and samplers, each with different main settings like tempo, pitch, main EQ, sequence length as well as motion tracking connections.

The additional Visual Interface gives you the possibility to design a whole new look for each scene. The visual corresponds to the sound as well as the motion interaction and main FX. In relation to your device it supports up to 3 display outputs with separate content.

Soniface Pro combines a modular concept with spatial audio abilities. This offers new approaches to audiovisual performances and interactive installations. The desktop version supports surround sound output up to 7.1 speakers. The objects on the display become positioned within the XY field of the surround room.

Soniface Pro does not refer to pro audio but allows you to use all facets of the software. As reference, you will find videos and music of our works (Ectoplastic) which were completely made with it, like multichannel audiovisual performances as will as our musical releases.

There are a lot of pro features on our list and we are looking forward for the next update. Don't hesitate to write us your questions and feedback which we will answer personally.

Information
We do our best to avoid bugs, often enough they drive us crazy or were disappointed when a moment was lost. But it has to come out sometime and after the update before the update. So feel free to write us bugs and problems, definitely also if you made a song or video.

Soniface needs access to the camera for motion tracking, the microphone for audio recording, the local files to save projects and recordings, and the network for Ableton Link.

Much more content, terms of use, credits and FAQ are in the app's guide and can be found in the app's start-up menu.

About Mazetools
Empowering creativity, democratizing musical expression and making it inclusive - how does that work? These are the questions that keep us busy. Soniface is a first step in the process and provides important points of contact through the multitouch-based principle & motion tracking input. But we want to go further - with you and the community.

We wish you a great time with Soniface Pro,
Stephan & Jakob

Abstract Alien Spacecraft Joyriding!

The more I explore... the more I finally figure out how stuff works... and the more info I get from other users... the more I really love this app.

It’s never cut and dried clearcut like a legacy tool you might be familiar with... but once you figure out the ignition switch, where the gas pedal is, and how to shift gears... taking this alien 👽 spacecraft out for abstract joyrides can be a rewarding stellar hoot. :)

I think the reason most of the videos sound similar is that there’s only one dude (the dev) posting them, and that’s his style. A lot of the default settings are also set up to sound like what you see/hear in the videos. Once you start clearing the face panels and starting from scratch, as well as loading up your own samples... you can get VERY interesting and varying stuff from it.

It’s definitely not for everyone, but for those who dig flying like ya stole it on alien spacecraft joyrides to abstract destinations unknown... its worth the initial frustration of trying to figure out how to hotwire the dang thing. ;)

Thank you skiphunt!

YES YES YES IT HAS BEEN DONE!

Big ups to the developers U MADE IT HAPPEN!, Audiobus in effect, beautiful changes to the workflow.. so psyched this was sitting on my back burner fo ages, understanding the beauty of it but unable, for a number of reason, to incorporate it into my workflow. NOW it’s never coming off my pad. MUTANT is killer too, especially now, with its integration as well, a must buy. Screw ur wig on tight this thing gonna knock ur socks off. a work of Art. Congrats and well done to the team that made this happen

Brilliant innovative strange

Hails to Scriabin composer who would be proud you implemented the color piano. This is the most interesting app with lofty art style and huge sonic rewards for the “strange” interface. So as a beginner with 2 days I love it but just needs a manual and tips and tricks type thing. The drum machine makes sense yet the grids and color piano confuse me although I am programming them with ‘magnetic effect. This is a space age futuristically complex, personal composition, feeling machine of sound vibrations turned into emotions of the soul. Cheers
