SoundBrush is an iPad app that turns drawings into music. With SoundBrush, you don't need to know how to read music or play an instrument to create songs. It works the way you think, focusing on the creative process instead of the technical side of music. With just a few simple gestures – draw, scroll, zoom – you can start making beats and sounds. Additional advanced gestures and an audio mixer give you more control over your song. There are 33 instruments to choose from, including acoustic guitar, xylophone, electric piano, rock drums, trombone, acoustic bass, violin, and harp. Three are already included in the app at no cost (piano, harmonica, ocarina).
SoundBrush was created by Basil Al-Dajane and Jayson Rhynas, who are both musicians and graphic artists. Understanding that not everyone can play a musical instrument or want to invest the time and money to learn how, they built SoundBrush so that anyone can create music.
