Welcome to Secret Base Design; we make innovative music apps for iOS, designed to be played "live" as musical instruments. Over the next month or two, some of our earlier apps are going through complete overhauls -- we've taken them off of the app store for a bit, but they'll be back soon (as new and improved versions!). Here's what you should check out.

  • Nice To Be Your Friend Synth -- a SoundFont based synth with dual keyboards, MIDI, and built in Apollo MIDI Over Bluetooth support. It's free for the release, so now would be a good time to go and grab it!
  • Apollo -- This app connects a pair of iOS devices, or an iOS device and a Mac, sending MIDI over Bluetooth. Bluetooth connections are fast, low latency, and low power. With Apollo, you can now effortlessly connect iOS devices, and send MIDI in either direction.
  • MIDIMorphosis, an app that converts live audio signals (or recordings) into MIDI. Initially intended for transcriptions, it's fast enough to control synthesizers with slower guitar lines. It works with any instrument that can produce a stable pitch, and vocals if you avoid vibrato.
  • Spectral Eye is a free, universal app that visualizes the Fast Fourier Transform of incoming audio. By arranging the FFT in a spiral, frequencies that are an octave apart are lined up. No ads, no nagging, just a handy tool to understand sound better. Everyone seems to love Spectral Eye, and we think you will too. If you want to have an idea of what Secret Base Design is about, check out that app first. There is also a paid version of the app, with a few additional features.
