Glitch Machine for iPad
Glitch Machine is a unique sound generator for your iPad. It makes use of a waveform display and programmable code (RPN), which can be altered via the calculator layout. RPN code-lovers will probably feel like their eating chocolate sundaes in Heaven while playing with this app. The rest of us, however, will be stuck pressing random buttons until we create a sound we like.
It’s worth noting that there’s a certain amount of ambiguity that stems from more obscure forms of sound creation. Often times you’re left scratching your head trying to create something decent, but other times, that lack of know-how makes you rely on your creative prowess more, which can take you some unexpected places.
In regards to Glitch Machine, this is as much of a strength as it is a weakness. Many people will find the idea of entering in code to create sound uninspiring. Others will love it.
Either way, the app is capable of creating some cool quirky sounds even if you don’t know what you’re doing.
For a few dollars, Glitch Machine, is an app worth looking at.
