Today we are releasing Color Chime: a colorful way to make music.
The core of the app is a multi-timbral step sequencer with an engaging interface. We added simple controls for timbre, tempo, scale, delay and filter parameters. Creating a melody only requires a couple of taps.
Download the Color Chime press kit.
Snowchime for iPhone® and iPad® is the first app from NTHSynth.
