For those of you that observe traditional traditions, Winter Solstice is this Sunday! Winter Solstice is far superior to Christmas, because you get your presents several days before everyone else. Suckers!
Here is a lengthy list of apps on sale that will help you make the most of your iTunes gift cards. I'll try to keep the list updated over the weekend, with the newest apps on top.
The Sound Test Room's Doug and Colin have been working hard on a half-hour long Sound Test Room Radio special, featuring music videos from 9 different members of the music app community! Along their adventures I discover why, when asked, you should always provide voice-over snippets... you never know where you might turn up! I'm thrilled to have been a part of this, even if my actual involvement was only about 3 minutes in Adobe Audition.

This busy week for Amazing Noises concludes with their first app, Gliderverb, getting an update to be less annoying!
What's new in GliderVerb v1.3:
New Version! We removed the "annoying voice" now you can use all the Gliderverb features, even the Pad and the Ribbon. The only limitation is you can't save new presets; but you still can load the old ones you made, using the two arrows you find on the left and right side of the preset name (top side of the main window).
We also lowered the price of the in-App purchase (till January 10th 2015). With the in-App purchase you can access the Preset Manager (to save your new presets), and MIDI enable the Pad.
