- Can I add my own sounds?
Not yet! We’re working on it!
- Can I save my creation?
Yes you can! New in version 1.1, you can save your Mujik inside little jars. It's very lovely.
- I love your app!
Yay! Thanks! It would be awesome if you could review it on the iTunes store!
- Your app sucks!
Thanks for the feedback. Send us an email and tell us what you don’t like. Also, feel free to review it (a little constructive criticism goes a long way).
- What else are you guys working on?
Some of it is secret. Some of it is not. We just like working on fun musical things... check the Lucky Frame website for more information about us and what we do!
What do I do? What are all of these books?
- Turn the sounds on and off by flicking the switches in the top row.
- Each switch controls the sound of the book underneath it. Tap a red book to look inside. Have a play around, move the bugs and try tapping the arrow!
- Tap the little book logo to choose a new sound. Tap the lower right corner to return to the library.
- Tap a red book to control a repeating effect on the sound. It sounds great on drums!
- Hold down the picture frames to control the little balloon. Moving the phone controls the balloon and changes the sound. Weeeee!
Or maybe you want to know what the interwebs have been saying about us? Here are some cyberquotes:
Listed in the Gizmodo "Essential Apps Directory"!
At its heart, Mujik is a drum sampling machine. That description, though, doesn't do it justice: the interface is inspired and artistic, the instrument choices, albeit limited, complement each other beautifully. The end results are phenomenal, especially if you musical tastes lean a little toward right field.
from Create Digital Music:
Musical technology is often designed to be “hard” in character. Interfaces are cold and technological-looking, futuristic like spaceships, or made to replicate antique gear to make guitarists feel nostalgic. Musical interfaces consciously avoid anything “childish” – calling something a “toy” being the worst possible insult – and they’re certainly never whimsical. That’s why the real news about Mujik isn’t that it’s a new iPhone app, or that, after a few weeks of teasers, you can download it today on the iTunes store. The news is that it’s a musical interface with lightning bugs.
Every so often something hits the App Store that is interesting but difficult to explain. At the same time, it is enjoyable to use, and you tip your hat to the people who thought it up, even if it has no real practical use.
If you have been intimidated by sophisticated music creation tools available in the appstore, you should definitely give Mujik a go. It’s a fun and enjoyable way to begin creating music.
This app is very difficult to explain, but so simple and entertaining to use. It is sure to entertain anyone who tries it out for hours at a time. The basic rhythm playing behind the effects is so entrancing time will literally melt away and you will find a half hour has passed since you first touched the app and dove into it's world of rhythm.
