So keep it slow, minimalistic, and, most importantly, keep yourself comfortable!

"Complex and well thought out, endless possibilities."
"This is a space age futuristically complex, personal composition, feeling machine of sound vibrations turned into emotions of the soul."
"These people know music as well as sound synthesis. Simply ground breaking…"
"Brilliant innovative strange"
"I am looking forward to seeing how proficient I am with this in 3 or 4 years…"
"In any case it’s an interesting app to get lost in for hours…"
The journey started in 2012 and Mazetools became a catalyser for many thoughts and experiments about the combining of geometric visuals, cymatics, color-note connections, sound synthesis, futuristic input methods or projection possibilities...
The release of Mazetools Soniface 1.0 in May 2017 has been made possible through a scholarship from the EU, the german federal state of Saxony-Anhalt, diligent testers, institutions AND of course our mentors, friends and families, who all gave us positive feedback. Thank you very much!
Many enthusiasts are certainly looking for specific pro features. Because we want to be cross platform useable few things still need some time! Currently we‘re just two guys with families and we are independent (no ba, vc or big company behind). Our story is characterized by passion and you‘re welcome to support us :)
Stephan Kloss (idea, design & development of Mazetools) and Jakob Gruhl (operative, support, mediator) met in 1999 as teenagers making Hip Hop and electronic music. Now, 20 years later, we have the pleasure to produce and perform with our own tool, what still feels unbelievable. So, enjoy all the demo content we put into Soniface!
