Back from the Gravetable
Curtis uses an unusual hybrid of wavetable and granular synthesis to create tones and timbres quite apart from the standard FM or subtractive synthesis fare. Add this app to your arsenal to create sounds you simply cannot squeeze out of any other synth, no matter how much you’ve twiddled its knobs.
Create a synthesizer from any recording, with endless temporal possibilities. Play the sound forward, backward, or even at a single point! Unlike scratching a record, pitch doesn’t depend on how quickly you move through the recording. Of course Curtis brings a scratch mode too!
Say, what's your source?
Curtis now comes preloaded with an exclusive sound set created by sound design pioneer Richard Devine! You can also load sounds through iTunes, record directly with your iPad, or paste audio from other applications. Try it with speech, singing, synths, jackhammers, or birds. Mangle your recordings or create soft, gentle textures.
A chromatic quantize mode rounds grain sizes to match the frequencies of standard equal-tempered tuning. In this mode, Curtis will sound in tune with your other MIDI instruments or soft-synths. Naturally, the old geometric mode is still available for your dissonant pleasure.
