Retro Future

Inspired by the oil can delays of the 60s and our previous granular explorations, Curtis™ and Spunk™, Soup brings you a virtual magnetic fluid that you can record onto, slosh around, and play back from. You can use it as a unique delay effect or more like a granular synthesizer, concocting your own wholly novel sounds.

Quantum Sound

Soup breaks up recordings into individual sound quanta with which you can interact as if they made up an audio fluid. They can be played linearly or randomly, forward, backward, or even sideways. They can, moreover, be stirred together, giving a whole new meaning to mixing sound.

Sounds Touching

Not only is this an extremely visual audio experience, it’s terrifically tactile as well. With support for multi-touch, Soup lets you get in there and mangle the fluid in a way that’s simply not possible with knobs and faders.

Audio Palette

Soup will let you paint with sound. You can record external sounds through the microphone or import WAV files, slathering sound over the virtual fluid. Then your fingers can become play heads, reading back the sounds from any position, or multiple positions at once.

Working again on 13.5.1

Thanks for fixing your baby. Things can get interesting again!

(old panic review follows)

Help! Doesn't work on 13.3

It's an awesome app, but it is completely broken by iOS 13. It won't even start on 3rd gen Pro running 13.3 - it just force quits. I've owned all of the Strange Agency apps, and most of them sadly died in the 32 bit app purge. This one should be fine, though, but it isn't. It was very expensive, and it won't even start.

UPDATE: iOS 13.5.1 app is still dead in the water. Don't buy it if you're running anything past iOS 12.

Great Granular Glitchy Goodness

If you enjoy mangling your audio, this is the app for you. The last update restored the ability to import files. The ability to record and export your recordings from within the app allows you to use them somewhere else.

Glad to get Strange again

I wish this had better file import! It’s a blast to play with but poor file import is harshing my mellow. There are a few ways to make .wav import easy, including opening the door to Files app in/out access. The GUI panel for file import is glitched too. Oops please fix the bug.
