Description

"Part instrument, part interactive ambience, part subtly-changing New Age album, moodscaper's autoplay button is a wonderful introduction to its charms. With a single touch, it generates a musical artwork that's different every time." "A worthy and lush-sounding musical companion." ​ Sound On Sound Magazine - Aug 2016 Moodscaper is a generative music app and a great personal companion for studying, providing non-intrusive headphone music at work, relaxing, meditating and even sleeping. Just launch the app, tap automatic play, and moodscaper will produce melodic, atmospheric and evocative ambient music in a “light”, “dark”, “space”, "happy" or “sad” mood. Moodscaper is also an easy to use instrument for creating epic-sounding pads and effects as part of a larger iPad-based music-making setup. You can even create your own custom instrument by loading your own samples, and taking advantage of moodscaper's generative engine. Main features: · Unique generative atmospheric sample-based instrument · Simple user interface · Sleep timer · Five scale-based moods · Variable dynamics - from mellow and sparse to full-on drama! · Four loopers with optional sync · Provides tasteful auto-accompaniment to your playing in realtime or in loops · Hints displayed on keys that should sound good with root notes or chords · Samples are randomly stacked for a bigger sound with more variation · Effects section with filter, dual-delay and reverb · Effects tweaks can be recorded in loopers · Additional 20 key instrument for each mood · Add your own samples and create your own mood-based instrument · Additional instruments available as free downloads at moodscaper.com · IAA support (as a generator) with no special setup required For more information, a downloadable manual, demos and support, please visit www.moodscaper.com Thanks and happy moodscaping!

  • Good instrument. 1 major flaw

    Very well designed instrument. Lots of potential, particularly with the ability to load my own sounds. And that’s where the major flaw comes in. The inability to share/transfer sounds between apps is a deal breaker for me. At the very least, the Moodscaper should be compatible with AudioShare. When I’m using my iPad to do sound design, I have to transfer the completed sound(s) to iTunes on my Mac and then transfer them back to the iPad in order to get the sounds into Moodscaper. Please make Moodscaper compatible with AudioShare. All of the apps I use for synthesis, sound design and processing are compatible with AudioShare and allow me to quickly transfer my files without using an external machine.
  • One of the most enjoyable instruments

    This is so much fun, and so forgiving to the player. Everything sounds good on it, but you can truly compose, too.
  • Awesome newness

    If you are looking to make some mellow type of music this is hands down the best app for you to start on

    Worth every penny. Whether in performance or play mode, produces a wondrous array of Ambient melody. Does need Audiobus support though- that would be perfection.
  • Awesome! Except for one thing.

    I absolutely love this app. I only gave it a four star rating because, like others, I wish it had Audiobus 3 support. It's the only thing holding it back!
  • Fantastic!!

    Great app!! I use the auto-play feature most often but the interactive keypads are fun too. The free sound samples available on the product website are very good. Highly recommended. If you like ambient music this is a must buy.
  • Love it

    This app is seriously cool. My only beef is that it is not compatible with Audiobus.
  • Best real-time ambient music generator

    Skipping this update since the developer reduced the number of loopers from 5 down to 3. Reducing my review to 3 stars also.
  • Beautiful and functional, works with AUM and is great in studio and live

    First, if you want a manual most developers have one on their website which is linked here at the bottom of the app's description page (App Developer's Website). My advice is to open it in Safari and the select "Open in iBooks...", which is located at the top of the Safari window (this is true for any PDF loaded into Safari). iBooks automatically saves the PDF which then can be organized into a "Synths" category if desired. Ok, about Moodscaper, it's a beautiful app which currently loads into AUM and routed into AudioBus but not AudioBus itself. However, the included sounds are wonderful. Adding your own sounds is easy and the current functionality is good. Future functionality looks to be excellent. Highly recommended for its future feature and upcoming features. I advice looking at the developers website and YouTube channel to learn much about Moodscaper. There's another popular iOS music app YouTuber who has some excellence videos about this app. Personally I'm using Moodscaper more and more in my productions. I also you it live with a band I play in as I really enjoy generators or generative apps (going back to Bloom).
  • Surprisingly good

    Ambience for when nature sounds and meditation music gets tiresome at work. Also nice that it doesn't repeat. It'd be nice if the buttons were labeled somehow...
