As Buzz users, have you found some nice Android music apps worth to check out?

I still haven't worked out how to really use it at all but Sunvox is pretty much Buzz for Android - really powerful bit of software: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... nvox&hl=en

Well - producer site seems to be dead, maybe domain has died because software was for free?

Oh I'm not american redneck ;) and I can find producers site. All domain of warmplace.ru was dead. But that was in Russia - so maybe a bear has eaten theirs maintenance guy? ;) Or maybe they didn't pay monthly bribe rate for russian govmob? ;)

From loading demos into it it seems really powerful, though for me what's prevented me from using it is the UI. It'd probably be excellent on tablets but on a smart phone sized screen it's quite fiddly getting from place to place.

yeah i d/l the pc version .. its pretty cool for a phone app but like you said that ui , tho pretty , is sorta klunky . also theres a lot of general functionality that is annoying but me thinks ive gotten very spoiled what with all the awesome aspects of Buzz (thanks devs and of course oskari)
ATM i still have a dumb phone but my gf is trying to make me join the 21st century in which case ill probably opt for something like this .

Although pretty different I found Nanoloop to be a lot more fun to play with and shows how a ui should be done on a phone sized screen - https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... m.nanoloop

Sunvox is pretty good. I use it on my phone when I'm bored, but I haven't come up with anything worthwhile yet.

It's pretty limited sound-set wise, but PixiTracker is quite fun & cheap (+ free demo).

Well, talking about Alex work, I still look for something like his soundfields for controlling my strings and trumpets articulation. A few months ago I asked him if a smartphone with an Android and his app can work as MIDI controller, but he answered that "Android has no built-in MIDI in/out frameworks" so maybe, in future he will implement some wireless protocols. But who knows when/whether it will be done... Maybe you, guys, know an existing, not necessary Android similiar solution?

Ps. I thought also about using a joystick and Tinga's (as a master of joystick-music) consultation but I'm afraid that any such device will broke into pieces after couple intensive tremolos and vibratos.

Mu_ I recently downloaded wireless mixer 1.5 from the android store it uses midi yoke to act as a controller for software. Haven't used utilities yet tho , not sure it'll what you want. Also found milky tracker for android but was too busy to see if it was any use.

You can't do it directly but you can use OSC as a bridge between the phone and midi i/o - http://hexler.net/software/touchosc-android
