Igor Vasiliev has released GlitchScaper, a rhythm machine with six sound generators, each controlled by a two-layer cycle sequencer, designed to easily create glitchy patterns and scapes. GlitchScaper is available for $15.99.
To quickly find new ideas, each generator has separate options for making sequences and tones. The parameters of the new sequences and tones are set randomly, but are guided by several user-defined options, which in outline define the steps of the sequence and the type of tone or noise. This allows you make a quick draft of a pattern and then simply tweak it to get the final sound.
The tone generator makes bright and rich sounds based on 12 complex waveforms or various types of noise, and can also use an external input as a signal source. Effects transform the tone from smoothly varying to full of squeaks and rattles.
Each effect is modulated by a special envelope generator with different shapes that change throughout the sequencer step.
Each sound generator has individual spatial effects, as well as a common reverb space for all generators that adds an ambient layer to the final mix.
The final mix can be even brighter and heavy or pumping with the built-in harmonic exciter and bass enhancer.
The intuitive interface and powerful sound design features make this application super convenient for creating your own, unique sound.
GlitchScaper is great for creating simple beats with an interesting and unusual sound, but it was originally designed for digital distorted patterns with longer steps that blend perfectly with the rhythms of classic drum machines and sequencers.
GlitchScaper is a universal iOS app meaning it’s available to iPhone and iPad users and is also available to MacOS users too (AUv3).
