Figure Updated with Ableton Link

Propellerhead's excellent Figure app received a massive update today! The headline is Ableton Link, but there are a lot of other goodies in here too! Two new drum kits have been added, along with Audiobus Remote triggers and improved canine support!

What's new in Figure v2.2:

You won’t believe how much cool new stuff we’ve put in this version. Ableton Link! New kits! Remote triggers! And more! Keep reading to get the full scoop.

• Sync Figure with other apps through Ableton Link. Play Figure with friends, or sync with other music apps on the same device.
• Two new drum kits, Bern and Leeloo. Bern is a city in Switzerland. Leeloo is a Mondoshawan weapon against evil. We hope they’ll inspire lots of new songs!
• Although we don’t condone ever putting Figure in the background on your device (it’s so much harder making music that way!) Figure now consumes less battery power when you do.
• But we didn’t stop there! We’ve also introduced support for remote triggers through Audiobus too. Yay!
• Lately we’ve been getting a lot of requests from Pono users and dogs to improve audio rendering to 48khz on iPhone 6S, so we did. Shoutout to all our canine fans out there!
• ...and scores of minor fixes and improvements crafted during the Allihoopa summer of love.

withnailus - iPad Music EP

Reader withnailus has been into iPad music for a while, but when his laptop died he decided to take the plunge and work exclusively on the iPad. And he's been keeping busy! Embedded here is a playlist of original tracks all produced with apps! His voice sounds great with the contemplative vibe on these!
