The world around us is an endless source of visual information, the flow of the fractal code of life. "Nature - Oscillator" is one of the attempts to translate this code to sound, using spectral synthesis algorithm of the Virtual ANS engine (software simulator of the unique Russian synthesizer ANS). The program continuously reads the image from the camera and interprets it as the spectrum of the sound. And you can easily control the scanning curve: its amplitude, type and speed.
[ How to use ]
Start the app and you will hear the sound immediately. Try to move the camera and you will hear the sound change.
If there is no sound for some reason - try to reduce the Quality parameter in the app menu.
How to change the scanning curve:
* amplitude: touch the screen and slide up or down;
* speed: touch the screen and slide left or right;
* type: use the slider at the top of the screen.
Any sound can be recorded by pressing the REC button on the right side of the screen.
* camera selection and rotation (in the system settings);
* bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
This is a weird one.
I love what this app does. It puts different sound filters over the viewer in order to "interpret" the image across the spectrum in different ways. You can then record the sound and paste it wherever you want. EXCELLENT for samples and weirdness.
However, I would like to be able to take the picture as well, and load it into virtual ANS without having to go through an IP. That feature would make it 5 stars.
Issue with position on screen
I love this app, but since iOS 11 it appears positioned incorrectly once it is launched and only shows up in half of the screen. Is a fix or update on the way?
Update: thanks for the quick response - looking forward to the update. A great developer, Virtual ANS is also a fav.
Developer Response ,
This bug will be fixed as soon as possible. Sorry for inconvenience...
Very Cool for FX and up/down sweeps!
This app has a lot of potential! I recorded lots of the sounds I got on my phone, threw them into Ableton and further processed the sound into something that I can use for a song. I think it's cool to say that "this sound came from the TV in my hotel in Florida".
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
