TechnoBox studio for iPhone

Synthtopia has this post (as do quite a few today) about a new techno sequencer / studio coming to the iPhone. The interface looks very cool indeed.


technoBox is a virtual techno studio on the go for iPhone / iPod touch, featuring stunningly accurate emulations of three classic boxes: the legendary 303 bass line machine, together with the smooth 808 and punchy 909 drum machines.

technoBox has easy to use sequencing capabilities which lets you tie together patterns, or use it live by improvising pattern switches on the fly!

The drum section features 11 parts with 808 or 909 sounds (for a total of 22 sounds) with variable amount of shuffle per pattern.

technoBox comes with a session manager which allows you to load/save sessions in realtime without stopping the internal sequencer — great for saving realtime improvised patterns without interrupting the audio stream.

Coming soon to the App Store.

  • Authentic 303 emulation based on the ABL2 engine
  • Drum module with selectible 808 or 909 sounds
  • Shuffle with variable amount for drum module
  • Transpose and randomizer for synth module
  • 24 patterns per session (12 for 303, 12 for 808/909)
  • Pattern sequencer with up to 1000 bars
  • Session manager with realtime switching
  • High contrast GUI for use in clubs etc.
  • Supports autorotation to your preferred landscape orientation
  • On board quickstart manual
  • Supports multi-touch for knobs

Looks and sounds awesome. I'm just hoping that the interface isn't as confusing and half-assed as Randgrid.

You're right, it does look good, especially the interface designed for use in a club. I did like that. I guess we'll have to see what it is like in the flesh.

I noticed this is now available, but it is a bit expensive for me at £5.99

I know that's cheap for a 303, but I already have some alternatives that sound similar on my iPOD. We'll see how long I hold out!

So it looks to be competing with Randgrid I guess. The developer is obviously keen to update it regularly so we'll see how it goes. Editing the drum sounds (i.e. simulating an 808 and 909 rather than just 1 sample per drum) would be nice...

At this rate I'm gonna need another iPOD soon :o)

It's now out in the App Store! Woohoo. I have been waiting for the ABL to be ported to the iPhone and my dreams have come true! Now I can stop sacrificing baby lambs everyday.

Randgrid is a confusing mess. To sell an app for $7.99, you MUST have a step-by-step manual to boot. Oh—you say they have a manual? Try following it, I'll check back in 2 hrs, and see how far you've got, and see how many things you've smashed...
