SoundCells is an experimental synth, aimed to be a real DS instrument.

User guide

SoundCells was designed to be played with the user holding the DS with its screen facing outwards.

  • Note Layout - The normal mode offers two octaves-full of natural notes.
  • Tone - There are only a limited number of tones, and they eventually loop.
  • Recording - Only allow one live note at a time with 3 recordable tracks. Record an accompaniment, and then jam along.
  • Technique - One technique is to slide the point of contact up and down between octaves to obtain a kind of mandolin sound. It is also particularly good for trills.

There are also 2 additional play modes:

  • Bagpipe mode - Start a drone sound like you'd get on a bagpipe.
  • Double-your-octaves mode - Subdivide each octave row into two more octaves.
