Cool Ed Tool!

For those that understand Fourier theory but want to see (hear) it in action, this helps you visualize how different waveforms sound. Plus musicians can save waveforms and recordings of the onscreen play surface (amplitude & pitch x&y axis) then import them into a wave table synth or sampler to create your own instruments. Very cool! Wish it had a basic reverb instead of the echo effect, but no big deal.

Simply genius!

very easy to use. drawing your own waveform and then playing it is AMAZING! would love to be able to adjust arrpegiation rate and such, much too fast to be useful. take some notes from the app 'bebot' on how one of these should be controlled musically. but other than that, sounds great! oh ya also the ability to adjust echo time and other perameters as well as turn arppegiation on/off, features youd expect to have. Polyphony would be AMAZING!!
