Announcing Hokusai

It’s finally time to draw the covers off our new app, Hokusai. Hokusai is a multi-track audio editor — like a word-processor for sound. It’s for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, subtly adjusting its interface to fit the different devices.

You can grab audio from a bunch of different sources — recording in to it, importing from various file types via USB or Dropbox, transferring recordings from Sylo Synth or other apps, using the built-in synth tools, and so on.

Then, you can chop and change to your heart’s content: select bits, cut and paste them around, apply all sorts of different filters, mix down tracks… the full version of Hokusai includes over 35 tools for munging audio.

When you’re happy with it, export to wave or AAC/M4A (MPEG4) format, again via USB or Dropbox or by sending it to other apps.

It’s still in beta testing right now, and we just have a sneak preview up right now, but keep an eye out for more details!
