Inspired by the Korg Kaossilator and the Moog synthesizer, Saucillator transforms mobile devices into a platform for creating and playing digital synthesizers. It uses the touchscreen to manipulate oscillators and effects, and it also allows for live-looping and recording.

    Users are able to play custom synthesizers using the x-y axes of the touchscreen. The x-axis corresponds to amplitude (volume) and the y-axis corresponds to frequency (pitch). Playback can also be looped, recorded, and EQed using a Parametric EQ.

    On top of performing, Users are able to create their own custom synthesizers, which consist of a custom timbre and user-defined effects. A small variety of timbres are included: Sine, Square, Saw, Pulse, Noise (white)*, Theremin, "Singing Saw", "Electric Eel", and "Starslide." These, as well as any user-created synths, can be mixed and matched at different harmonics, amplitudes, and phases to create custom sounds.

    Each synth has customizable fx parameters as well, including Envelope (ADSR - attack & release), LFO (rate & depth), Delay (rate & decay), and Note Lag.

    Other abilities:
    -Choose scale: Pentatonic, Major, Minor, Blues, or Chromatic
    -Choose the base note for the pad.
    -Control the grid size.
    -Record to the SD card.
    -Toggle visualizations. More to come here.

    *I fully intend to make noise scale with frequency and actually become useful (e.g. "Red" Noise).

    Permissions Needed:
    - SD card access: for saving instruments and recordings.
    - Vibration: For haptic feedback.

    Special thanks to Garrett Langley ( for helping with design and general usability.

    Saucillator 2.0 Buffalo. I think it's the sauce, boss!
