Description:Cosmovox is a fantastic app for anyone interested in music, or even just general noise making. Tilt the iPhone to play various scales of your selection. This app is a fully-feature synthesizer, which allows you to play around with the scales you are creating by altering the range, fundamentals, tuning, vibration, beating, and feedback, among other things. It's not 100% perfect, but for $1.99, it's a completely excellent find.
