triqtraq Updated with Audiobus!

Readers Piotr and Hoyas79 excitedly wrote in within minutes of each other with the news that triqtraq has Audiobus support!

I agree entirely with Hoyas79, who added:
"This beatmaking underdog is not getting the attention it deserves!"

This is a very well designed iPhone jam sequencer. The screen layout fits naturally in your hand, with simple thumb movements accomplishing so many results. Recently triqtraq was updated with AudioCopy/Paste for sample import/export, and this Audiobus update is greatly welcomed!

What's new in 1.2.0:

  • Audiobus support
  • Background audio playing
  • iTunes import button in user samples screen: import your samples from iTunes without needing to restart triqtraq
  • Bugfix for incorrect pattern length when exporting pattern while playing

Buy triqtraq on iTunes: $2.99 (iPhone)

Here is a helpful instructional jam from the developer.

Audanika Harmony Theory Lesson 5 - More Intervals

This week's Audanika Harmony Theory lesson continues with intervals. If you haven't already, you should go read Lesson 4, which introduces the concept and names of intervals. This one gets into Major and Minor intervals, so it will help to review Lesson 4. Seriously. It only takes 5 minutes to read and intervals are something everyone should understand.

When you've done that, watch this video and then head over to Lesson 5.

Beatsurfing Instrument Controller Demo

Reader Tim Behrens put together a demo video for Beatsurfing. It starts off with a beautiful bit of playing, followed by an explanation of the app in this setup at around 3:30. This is quite different from the crazy funk jamming we usually see the app used for.

Video Description:

A quick demo of how I use Beatsurfing to create instrument controllers, along with an explanation at the end. Beatsurfing is a great app that allows midi information to interact in new ways. Please note that it is a controller app and does not have any internal sounds. Everything you hear in the video was recorded live, using VST sounds in Cubase.
