Star6 combines the iPhone's accelerometer controls with granular synthesis technology to turn your iPhone or iPod touch into a unique music-mashing machine! It is the first fully featured, performance-grade sample instrument for the iPhone and iPod touch. This fun yet practical sound remix instrument enables you to create an infinite variety of amazing sounds from your own samples or by using our free presets. Version 1.1 includes major enhancements to the user interface and amazing new features.

We've worked hard to make Star6 a fun yet practical tool for musicians of every level. Chop up beats with a flick of the wrist! Use the iPhone's accelerometer to control Star6's powerful granular synthesis engine to change the Pitch, Speed, Gate, Sample Order, Sample Size and Randomness of samples.

FEATURES

- Massively fun sample-processing dashboard: Jump between six different music samples, apply six different granular synthesis effects, three additional DSP effects, change BPM, reverse the sound, record ... all from one screen!

- Jumping between samples is now quantized, so you stay on-the-beat at all times. You choose what beat to jump on, from 1/16th of a beat to 4 full beats.

- Your music or ours: Use our preset sounds or easily upload your own AIFF or WAV loops. You can even download complete sample packs from www.star6app.com, which automatically install themselves into Star6!

- Unique audio engine: Use granular synthesis to change the Pitch, Speed, Gate, Sample Order, Sample Size and Randomness of samples, all using the accelerometer. You won't believe how far you can bend your sounds!

- Multi-touch accelerometer control: Change multiple synthesis settings at once by placing fingers on multiple pads and moving the device.

- 3 additional DSP effects: Even more power to morph your sounds. Add Delay, Filter and Distortion effects to the end of the audio-chain to further customize your sound.

- 2 audio modes: “Sync Mode” to keep your samples on the beat and “Grain Mode” for bizarre continuous tone and random effects.

- Record: Capture your audio output for listening again or further use in production.

- Easy upload & download: Amazingly easy to upload samples and download recordings from your computer. You can even upload files in batches!

- Reverse: A single touch and your sample is playing backwards!

- Adjustable preferences for Pitch Steps and Grain Slide Time provide even more control over granular effects.

- BPM/Tempo: Uses granular synthesis to adjust the playback speed for all your samples from 1 - 303 BPM; you choose whether to preserve or bend the pitch.

Best App for experimental musicians/samplers/performers

:
This is a short review: BUY THIS. This is the first (and only, so far) app i have purchased for my iphone. It's the only music app that generates sound, that allows me to upload my own sound samples, that has easy-to-use but still very complex effects, and that i will probably want to use for a long time. I am planning on using this to both create music and to perform live. This isn't fully right, but sort of: this is a stripped-down alternate version of ableton live that instantly quantizes your music, allows you to remix it, and enables live performance. but really, it's better than that too. get it. worth it for the complex effects and the accelerometer usage alone. add in killer samples and the ability to upload your own easily, and this app approaches heavenly.

5/5 stars

Love it

I've never written a review before but this app deserves it. Way to go! Only complaint is it's a tad bit expensive and I haven't seen any updates for new features.
