Introducing Star6, the app that turns any music lover into an electronic musician


Agile Partners (creators of GuitarToolkit iPhone app) and musician Jason Forrest introduced Star6, the application that transforms the iPhone into a performance-ready sample instrument. Star6 is now available at the App Store for an introductory price of $6.99 (

Star6 is the world’s first fully-featured, performance-grade sample instrument for the iPhone and iPod touch that allows anyone to create an infinite variety of amazing sounds from their own samples or by using Star6’s free presets (on-the-go, wherever they are).

See it in action here:

The application features a powerful real-time granular synthesis audio engine that enables the user to change the pitch, speed, gate, sample order, sample size and randomness of samples by using the iPhone’s accelerometer. A few other cool features:

· Users can also add traditional audio effects like delay, filter, and distortion to control music samples in real time. 

· Star6 users can easily upload their own samples and everything can be recorded and downloaded with simple web browser-based file transfers. 

·  Record it all (listen to a great session again or use it further production.

The release is included below, which highlights all of Star6’s innovative features. If you are interested, I’d be happy to set up an interview, and put you in touch with Agile Partners or Jason Forrest. I can also send over screenshots.
