Star6 iPhone Sampler Synth Lets You Rave Out in Real Time

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 5, 2009


Star6 is a new iPhone app that turns your phone into a sampling synthesizer, perfect for live electronic music performances.

Created as a collaboration between musician Jason Forrest and Agile Partners, Star6 not only lets you record your own samples or play a variety of pre-loaded sampled sounds, but you can send your own sounds to your phone over a Wi-Fi connection. All you need is a WAV or AIFF file and a web browser and you can upload it to your iPhone for use in your sampladelic creations.

The Star6 engine lets you manipulate your sounds live, adding delays, filters and distortions to your tracks. You can even use the accelerometer to adjust pitch, speed, sample order, sample size and randomness by simply adjusting the angle of your iPhone. And while the sample pads don’t support multi-touch, the sound manipulation controls do, letting you layer multiple effects onto your sounds.

You can even record your live performances and turn them into samples that you can attach to one of the six playback pads, or easily download them back to your computer for further editing. Check out the video clip below to see Star6 in action:

Star6 is available now over at the iTunes App Store for $6.99 (USD). I already took the opportunity to download it and play with a copy on my iPhone, and it’s quite a blast. If you’re into electronic music, you should definitely check it out.
