fluXpad is Universal now (iPad + iPhone):


fluXpad is the first sample sequencer that fully functions by simply drawing the sounds. It is super simple to record your own sounds, to create different patterns and to jam with them.
fluXpad is a sample based groovebox/workstation with a highly original sequencer, where you “draw“ your music, which leads to completely different results compared to a traditional sequencer. The y-axis of your canvas controls the pitch, while the x-axis controls the sustain of your notes. Sounds familiar, but drawing on a canvas without any grid is a totally new experience. Of course it is possible to quantize your notes and you can limit your note range to major or minor scales.

Concept: Andi Toma, Jan St Werner (Mouse On Mars), Jan T.v. Falkenstein, Florian Grote
Development: Jan T.v. Falkenstein (TeaTracks)
Visual & font design: Gabriele Trützschler von Falkenstein
UX design: Jan T.v. Falkenstein, Florian Grote, Gabriele T.v. Falkenstein, Mouse On Mars

Review – fluXpad from Mouse on Mars

The idea of a tool to „paint“ music came up a couple of years ago. Mouse on Mars were asked for ideas to use tablets instead of a mouse in a professional studio environment. It soon emerged that replacing the computer mouse was not what Mouse on Mars wanted nor would it have improved their workflow. They had ideas how to use a tablet instead. You already guess it: Draw your sounds/music with it. Mouse on Mars hired Florian Grote who is now a part of the Native Instruments team, to work on an idea for a prototype app to draw and sequence sounds. With the success of Apple’s iPad it became clear that this tablet would be a perfect platform to bring the idea to a larger audience. At that time Mouse on Mars happened to meet composer and developer Jan Trützschler v Falkenstein via STEIM (Dutch institute for electronic music of which Werner had been the artistic director for a while).
Jan created several music apps such as Gliss and SQRT under his own label TeaTracks. He had been exploring similar ideas regarding the drawing of sounds during his PhD at the University of Birmingham which resulted in the iPhone app Gliss.
It made sense to them to team up and merge their ideas into fluXpad – the first intuitive drawing and sequencing music app.
The first version will be for iPad only.

    There is no „record audio“ option (only a record fx tweaking), the microphone should go just straight into the effects

  3. Andrew Crump

    Good app but when record into mic it don’t play back the sample it’s fine when import a sample but when say record voice it records it as a fizz this ain’t a major problem but I paid for this app other than that it’s good really good

    When I record a sound, it becomes a crackle sound. iPad Air 2 ios11. Makes the recording feature completely unusable.

    Gonzalo, no you don’t have to pay twice, because fluXpad is Universal. You might get asked to pay for the iPad, but then iTunes will „remember“ that you already own the iPhone version and the download will be for free

  8. Gonzalo

    Hello there,
    I wonder if I buy the fluxPad on my IPhone, me I want to install it on my iPad later, will I have to pay again?

    I added you to the beta tester list of Elastic Drums and fluXpad. You will get an email, when the next tests are happening. Thanks for offering your help

    If you ever need a beta tester for any of your apps please let me know. I own flux pad for the iPad but not for the iPhone. I have been beta testing for about eight years and I’ve beta tested everything from Moog apps to
    Tasty Pixel to Kyamatica and so many moreZ
    I also test video and photo apps but my favorite things to test are audio apps and as I said I’ve been doing it for years and I am not looking to get paid

    It would be cool to be able to save each set as an Ableton project – with every instrument rendered as as a separate waveform – and all instruments played together forming a scene. Some iOS Apps are already enabled to do that – this could be an extremely cool workflow-improvement when it comes to re-importing what you just created into Ableton.

    That’s not possible yet inside fluXpad, I am afraid to say. When using fluXpad in a host like Audiobus or AUM (IAA) you could record and export the audio of course.

    Hello, I love your great new APP! I noticed two problems with using FLUXPAD however! First, when making a new song the APP frequently crashes on my IOS 9 First generation Air IPad and I lose all of my work when this happens which is a lot. Second problem, when going through the samples list that is already built in to the APP I cannot move my curser in the list make my sample selection. This happens very frequently and is very frustrating. So,when I try to pick a sample from the list it gets stuck on a previously selected sample. Often, I cannot navigate to where I want to go to the samples list to make my desired selection as the curser will not let me move along to where I need to go and gets stuck on a particular sample making navigation hard. I just thought you should know about my user experience problems. The crashes are awfully cumbersome and frustrating. Right now, the APP is not so friendly to use until these issues gets resolved! Violence Dank Von Kanada, Susanne

    ja, Samples kann man über iTunes laden.
    Ableton Link wird implementiert sein, Fluxpad soll in AUM funktionieren, klar
