Control three continuous audio sources running in parallel, each with its own rate of shifting intensity.
Then, expand the soundscape with unusual sound effects crafted specifically for DroneLab.
Select any root note, and one or two additional tones. Use standard tuning, or fine-tune to conform to an untempered or non-Western tuning system.
Some sound sources allow for unpredictable fluctuation, with control over the rate of change.
You can select more than one sound effect at a time, and they will be triggered randomly.
Switch to full screen, and enjoy the visuals. The waves move at slightly different speeds, creating a 3D parallax effect. And when sound effects are triggered, an animated waveform of the sound appears.
Create an audio file with your current settings, at sample rates up to 96KHz. On newer devices, exports occur faster than real time.
Use the live recording feature to capture all the changes you make to the settings as the music plays.
Get going quickly by selecting one of the included presets. Change the key to best suit your instrument or voice. Tap 'play' and start improvising. Later, go further by selecting and customizing the sound sources, and save your own presets.
Compatible with any iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch running iOS or iPadOS 15 or later. All functionality is included when you buy the app - there are no in-app purchases or subscriptions.
