Have you ever wanted to convert your doodles into musical drawings? Now you can with Ed Burton's Tunetrace iPad app turns doodles into musical sounds.

Tunetrace works with the user taking an image on their iPad of their drawing. Then, Tunetrace scaps the image and simplifies the drawing into lines which can then be adapted into sound notes. When all the lines are compiled together, you get a custom-tailored song based on your own drawing. This means that each drawing will create entirely different music.

According to Burton, the Tunetrace "interprets the lines of a drawing as lines of code so that anyone who can doodle can feel some of the mystery and surprise of programming." This is a great musical drawing app for kids and adults alike to take a stab at being both an artist and a composer. Stats for Musical Drawing Apps Trending: Older & Chilly
