The C y m a S c o p e App Inspired by the legendary CymaScope instrument. See the actual geometry of music for the first time. available now for iPhone and iPad. * The CyamScope App is the world's first App that allows you to see the geometry of piano sounds. * The beautiful cymatic imagery you see is not computer generated. * All imagery in the app was created on the CymaScope, (a scientific instrument that makes sound visible) and then stored in digital memory for you to enjoy. Great Features * Play the Keyboard - Play the piano using touch-sensitive circular keyboard in your choice of concert pitch. * Use your voice - Trigger the notes with your voice - great fun and can be used for voice coaching. * Live Music - Play a live musical instrument or any recorded music to the app and watch the CymaScope imagery unfold in real time. * Record a melody line of up to 144 notes to be played and replayed at the touch of a button, revealing the beautiful cymatic imagery in real time. * Concert Pitch - Select your favorite concert pitch: 432 Hertz, 440 Hertz, 444 Hertz, each providing unique dynamic imagery. * Project The Imagery - Experiment with visual projection of the piano notes by connecting a video projector to the iPhone or iPad. * Color Or Monochrome - Choose the 440 Hertz visible piano notes for colorized performance, or choose the 432 Hertz and 444 Hertz visible piano notes for monochrome study. * Capture & Share - Capture moments of the imagery and share on Facebook or by email. * Save and print - Save any moment of the imagery to the device's Photo Library then print a hard copy-great for colorization by children using paints or crayons.

  • Bad developer

    By Quantum333
    The app has not been updated and sounds crackle when you play the notes on the piano. The image of the cymascope is so low resolution you see graphics artifacts. Only if they bother to update the app for newer devices.
  • Awesome.

    There are times when I just can't believe what people are developing for our phones, and this is one of them. The concept of Cymatics has been around for a while, but to be able to visualize sounds on your mobile device, it redefines our potential to unlock another dimension of our world. Imagine being able view a bird's song or the sound of ocean waves... the possibilities are endless.
  • Science Rules!

    This app is the coolest thing I currently have on my phone! I was captivated by cymatics, and having digital playback of an actual scientific instrument has been truly enriching to my life. I use it to show friends who have never heard of cymatics, but also to play my instrument to the microphone feature on the app and be able to see those sounds affect on water is truly incredible. Thank you!
  • poor design, not-as-advertised, gimmick

    By The Norik
    as i suspected. a poorly designed app that just plays a video file (usually the wrong one) when it detects a pitch. For example, i whistle a B6 and it will play a video of pre-recorded cymatic graphics of a B4. A complete waste of 10 bucks. i also wonder why the piano roll takes up so much screen space when its the cymatic visual that is most important. could be a cool app with proper design and no gimmicks.
  • Thank you!

    I have been interested in Cymatics for some time and ran across this app in the AppStore today. I am thrilled to be able to create these beautiful images with sound, amazing! Thank you so much for creating this, brilliant!
  • Can I Get My Money Back?

    By Ecos de la Eternidad
    The live music mic is a SCAM!!! I was really excited to use this app for live performances but was greatly disappointed to see that it is a hoax of pre-recorded images to notes similar to that which is being played. The transitions between notes don't make sense and are not consistent. Not sure why they would even put in the time to create this app...unless of course it was for my $10 😟 Again... Can I get my money back, please?
  • Super cool

    By woooooowzzzzz
    This truly is a revolution in our understanding of music from the standpoint of vibrational frequency as the translation of everything. That includes of course the perception of image based upon photo-reception. Additionally, water the foundation of life provides the modicum necessary in order to visualize frequency. The discovery of the technology incorporated in this application is perhaps a testament to the deepest understanding of the fibers of reality. In terms of physics credence can be lent to string theory, or that all matter and energy share the common language of constantly vibrating particles. Pandora's Box is open now. May as well see what's inside
  • Not impressed

    By ApexSelf
    There is a microphone icon that made me believe I could sing or play into the app and it would respond to me. When I click the microphone icon it only plays random notes and does not respond to my voice or sound. Not impressed.
  • Gorgeous patterns, deep results

    By Originaluser10000
    This is a great way to see that 432 is better and 440. I also love how these designs look like the patterns stars emit. Makes one wonder. Is everything we see a frequency of sound?
  • Beautiful & Fun

    By Meg "a, b, c" Dee
    This is a great app for anyone who is interested in cymatic visualizations. I like how you can create images using your own sounds. While there's some consistency in functionality issues, I hope they continue to develop this app - as it is a lovely concept.
