SoundyThingie is an application that translates drawn lines into music. Additionally to just drawing lines it lets you modify them in a variety of ways, like moving them around or connecting them.

If you want to see it in action you can watch the video on the support website: http://www.soundythingie.net

The application starts with an almost entirely black screen, waiting to be drawn onto by you. Each line created results in a sound that is related to the way the line was drawn.

There are only a few principles that make up that sound. Most important are:

- The vertical position of a line determines it's pitch. Lines at the top of the screen sound high, lines at the bottom sound low.

- Drawing speed determines volume. The faster you draw, the louder a line will be.

Besides that there are many buttons to press and knobs to turn which influence the sounds. You can later change a line's volume, attach other lines to it, choose from different waveforms.

You can also load and save your work, modify triggers and whatnot.

There's a short interactive tutorial included with the application that explains most of the functionality and leaves some features to be discovered.

What's New in Version 1.1

- share soundythingie files

Really mad I wasted my money. You need headphones to hear many sounds at all and it is very nonintuitive. The sounds are annoying buzzer type sounds, not anything pleasant to listen to.

This app would be cool if the sounds it made were instrumental sounds, but instead they are these annoying electronic buzzer noises. Nothing musical about them at all. After about 2 min you want to throw the iPad against the wall the noise is so bad. If they come out with an update that adds various orchestral sounds, then I might change my opinion (although I already deleted the app 5 min after I got it).

5/5 stars

Love it!

I'm not a musician, I'm a visual artist and it's a lot of fun to see how a drawing sounds. This is an original and creative app and I recommend it. It's a new way to look at and think about shapes and sound.

I'm sorry I can't share what I've done with friends though. I hope the developers add the ability to share and email our creations.
