Here is a video review from reader Nuno Zimas.

PPG Wavegenerator is out!

It is here! Thanks very much to Duke for sending me an email just before I head to bed!

iTunes Description:

PPG WaveGenerator is the latest development from the inventor of wavetable synthesis, Wolfgang Palm. It is a next generation synthesizer, building on the heritage of the PPG Wave keyboards.

The PPG WaveGenerator comes with a multitude of wavetables. The sound material contains the typical sounds from the original PPG wave models, as well as many new sounds generated by versatile analysis tools and also hand edited waves.

This app enables the user, to create his own wavetables in a playful way, and to hear the result immediately. Also you can construct the waves by adding harmonics very precise.

Buy PPG WaveGenerator on iTunes: $19.99

Buyer's Guide Update: Akai SynthStation

Akai have responded to my chief criticisms for their SynthStation app. Previously you'd have to navigate through menu after menu to get to most synth paramters, and there was no on-screen keyboard for testing patch changes if you did not have a MIDI keyboard plugged in.

Both of these issues have been corrected, leading to an elevation in rating from Pass to Meh. It isn't an amazing experience, but it sounds good and it is only $2.

Still think I'm being too harsh? Share your thoughts!

iPad Music App Buyer’s Guide Rating: Meh

Recommendation: Akai have succesfully polished this turd. There are better synth-studios, but none for $2.

Guitar Charts Creator is free!

Guitar Charts Creator for iPad is usually $5, but it is free today!

iTunes Description:

Guitar Charts Creator lets you create your own custom chord charts and diagrams, right on the iPad. You can create stacks of charts and add as many chords as you like. This app is smart, so it will help you work out what the name of the chord is (if you're not sure)!

If you practice guitar, no doubt you have a stack of hand-drawn guitar chords or chord books lying around.

Now you can cram all of that information onto your iPad so you can take it with you anywhere!
