WretchUp is a unique handheld effect and instrument for the iPhone that anyone can play. Inspired by analog hardware effects, Mouse on Mars have created a unique instrument. You can use it on vocals. You can use it on drums. You can use it to transform music tracks, or playing with feedback from a speaker. You can just have fun speaking or singing into it. But whatever you do, it’s designed around the handheld. In place of a complex interface, the focus is on a broad range of sound possibilities and quick exploration beneath your fingers. You can concentrate on listening and experimentation, as the app produces a range of sounds, fast.
Concept and design by Mouse on Mars. Developed by Florian Grote and Peter Kirn, iOS development by Peter Kirn and Oliver Greschke. Graphic design by Rupert Smyth. Built in Pure Data and libpd (http://libpd.cc) with some components from rjlib.
