iOS Update Vol. 28: Korg iPolysix & Metronome+

This week Sweetwater's Mitch Gallagher is jamming on Korg's iPolysix synth, and he takes a look at Metronome+.

He also has a really great hardware tip on USB Power outlets. I had no idea these existed, but now I'm grabbing 2. You can't even buy those at Sweetwater, and Mitch advises you check hardware stores! I'm seriously loving Sweetwater more and more for the continued support they bring to this community, even when they aren't selling a product!

Meteor Multitrack Recorder updated with Audiobus!

Meteor Multitrack Recorder is the latest DAW to add Audiobus support!

Thanks to reader Littlewoodg for the news, who notes it, "runs like butter with the most CPU-intensive audiobus-ready synths."

What's new in 1.4:

This version of Meteor now supports the AudioBus application, allowing you to record live audio directly from other compatible applications.

Allowed transferring of .mov, .m4a and .m4v files to and from DropBox.

You can now import videos from a file as well as the Camera Roll (using the video plugin).

Added a Reset Audio option to the 'Help' menu.

Added support for push notifications.

Fixed a bug which prevented pan controllers to be transmitted to connected MIDI instruments.

Echo Pad Updated with even more Effects

Holderness Media has updated Echo Pad with 3 new effects! They even listened to reader feedback and cleaned up the UI!

What's new in 1.3:

Brand new color scheme + UI adjustments based on user requests, plus 3 new effects.


3 new effects!

  • Noise - adds vinyl & tape style noise to the circuit
  • Distortion - two different distortion units
  • Erratic delay - self explanatory when you hear it!


  • Brand new color scheme + UI adjustments
  • access and choose FX on main screen
  • tap 3 times anywhere on screen to reset blue and red control orb location


  • fixed a bug when Echo Pad is connected as an Effect app in Audiobus, disconnecting the output app would result in faint distorted audio played back through Echo Pad. This is now fixed.
  • fixed a bug with Main Looper when creating long loops that could occasionally cause Echo Pad to crash.
  • other minor bugfixes

The distortion alone is worth the $3 admission on this app! I was playing with it quite a lot this weekend. It helped take some of my Animoog patches to a layer of grit I had been unable to achieve with Animoog's own effects.

Here is a demo of the new effects added in this version.

Orphion Is Free!

To celebrate Orphion's first birthday, developer Bastus Trump (no relation) is giving it away for a limited time!

Just last week Oprhion was updated with Audiobus support.

Introducing Audiobus support: Now you can stream live audio directly to other Audiobus-compatible apps!
