1 ) Mute Technics

Sound Engine play sound after stopping previous sound (without tilt sound in water).
It means you can stop current sound by tapping.
Especially “Mute” sound is useful, because let your play be rhythmic by making a break.

Use “Mute” actively

You can make groove by cutting long sounds like “Bubble” at various timing.

Use “Mute” passively

You can cut tail noise as unwanted sound. It’ll be include acoustic reflected sounds of water, wood, plastic and metal.

2 ) Water Tilt

Please lock Rotation in Control Center when you use tilt function. You can set Landscape Left or Right for stable performance.

If you put your device on your knees, you can play tilt sounds with taps easily.

3 ) Use over 3 fingers

Please set Home Screen & Dock > Multitasking > Gestures to OFF in Settings app, If you use over 3 fingers on iPad. You can concentrate on playing PET Bottling.
In iOS 12, General > Multitasking & Dock > Gestures in Settings app.

4 ) External Idea

When you play live or record, if you set your Mac/PC’s DAW to recording mode, it is good and practical idea.
Because you can use various effectors for designing your PET Bottle sounds.
