Patatap

A portable animation and sound kit

With the touch of a finger create melodies charged with moving shapes. While easy to pick up there is a wide range of possibilities. Switch between multiple color palettes and matching soundscapes on the fly. Patatap invites creators of all ages to engage the mind and senses in a different type of creation process.

I'm a shit musician. As a guitarist I was the type of guy that played an E-minor and then a B-minor and then stared at the audience expectantly. They were unimpressed.

The means? Your keyboard, of course, which Paratap turns into an eclectic musical instrument, something between sampler and synth. Tap any letter A to Z and you'll be met with a wide range of sounds - a drum break, a heavenly synth pad, an explosive Rorschach pitter-patter.

You might have played Patatap last week as it made its way around email, Facebook, Twitter, and other avenues. If you haven't, you probably should. People like this "portable animation and sound kit" that lets you "create melodies charged with moving shapes" on a touchscreen web browser (phone or tablet) or on a computer.

Nope, all of us can't be the next Beethoven. But we don't have to set that lofty a goal to learn to play the piano. It's great for playing in an amateur band, or even shredding tunes in a bar. And if you feel you can't afford those expensive piano lessons, don't fret.

Last year, we covered Jono Brandel and Lullatone's addictive site Patatap, which turns keyboard strokes into sounds and animations. Now they're are back at it with Typatone, an app that turns text into a lovely little xylophone melody. Like Patatap, Typatone puts a note to every keystroke, and typing out a message composes a song.
