iGlitch is a new musical instrument for the iPad combining the accessibility of the kraklebox and sonic exploration of circuit bending. The prototype instrument is a basic sample looper and LFO, but the interface and controls is a virtual representation of the sampler’s circuit board. The user controls that instrument by moving their fingertips over the virtual electronics to create sonic short circuits. Any terminal can be quickly soldered together to create unlimited chaotic sonic possibilities. Virtual kraklepads surround the circuit-board and allowing immediate and intuitive access to any single or multiple terminal depending on the virtual soldering. LFO’s, accelerometer data and external midi commands can also be used to influence the sampler’s circuitry.
