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.
Jakob Haq did a timely haQ attaQ Tutorial for the update!
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!
Doug Woods did a demonstration of the immense Chiptune possibilities available in Gadget. After a 5 minute song he gets into the individual gadgets that he's using on the track. This is the last week of the Korg Summer Sale, by the way!

Duo MSquared did a fun medley of genres in this live performance! If you're not digging what you hear, just give it two minutes and it will change drastically!
