If you're unfamiliar with synthPond I highly recommend that you watch the tutorial at :
http://apps.stfj.net/synthPond

It's the easiest way to get familiar with the software and understand what is possible. The first 5 minutes where I talk about basic features are relevant to synthPond Lite




synthPond is a relaxing spatial sequencer and generative audio toy inspired by the work of Toshio Iwai.

Unlike a normal sequencer where you place notes on a grid and a moving playhead plays them, in synthPond you place nodes in a field (pond).

Because the system is spatial, it's easily graspable and very intuitive, but also very deep. While it's easy for someone with no music knowledge to create a complex melody, synthpond is also suited for advanced musicians who are interested in generative musical composition.

Additionally, the audio generated can be placed in a 3D space, occurring around the listener coming from the relative positions of each node. This also allows for spatial features like orbiting to create a more generative composition.

synthPond requires headphones, without them you may hear distorted or limited audio.

synthPond was built with mobileFrameworks, an iPhone related c++ library for artists

synthPond Lite includes most of the features from synthPond 1.0, but lacks many of the more complex features of synthPond 2.0, which is available for $1.99 USD

What's New in Version 1.0.1

- fixed blank field / immovable nodes bug
