Interesting M4L Experiments

Reader Guaranath brought my attention to a video showing off some Max 4 Live (Ableton Live) experiments.

ORQUESTRA ELECTRÒNICA DEL VALLÉS, ooeevv if you're nasty, has been working on collaborative networked-music-making. In this example they've got 4 laptops all playing together. They've obviously spent a lot of time thinking about how people would use this, as they've even included chat inside of Ableton! That sort of functionality would make more sense if their aim is to make this possible over the Internet, rather than this example in the same room with an evil coffee maker.

This is barely relevant to the site, but I swear you can see an iPhone twice! It looks to be running a custom "OEV" app, so this could be a hint at things to come.

Exclusive Audiobus Details!

I've been sitting on this for nearly 2 months now, and I can finally talk about it! Audiobus is amazing for its ability to link the audio-streams of different apps and devices, allowing for completely new routing. What really blew my mind though is the fact that it can do all of this with discrete ports from the same app!

Pictured here is a beta version of Loopy that accepts these different port connections. There are a lot of possibilities here with "Studio" apps as well! Mix Animoog on track 1, Arctic on Track 2, and each drum from MoDrum on its own track. Now you can pan and apply effects to the individual tracks/ports, instead of a global reverb on everything!

With discrete ports you can run each individual instrument and then mix them in ways that won't drown each other out; a challenge faced by everyone who loves to use Genome for sequencing multiple apps together. No more cramming everything out of your headphone jack and hoping for the best!

This has been a key factor missing in iOS Music Apps and really elevates the platform into Pro Audio territory.

triqtraq - chessy name, awesome app!

I saw this in the stream of new iTunes apps this morning, but didn't really think twice about it after seeing the name and screenshots. Fortunately developer Sebastian Schatz sent me an email pointing to an amazing video of it in action.

I'm impressed! I think this goes on my list of reasons to get an iPhone.

They've even put together a whole bunch of tutorials on their YouTube channel, link is to a playlist for all 8.

JamUp Video Contest - JamUp Pro for everyone!

PositiveGrid is running an interesting contest for their JamUp guitar multi-effects app. The grand prize is $150 iTunes Gift Card and an Alesis iO Dock, but everyone who enters automatically receives a $20 iTunes Gift Card! They would like for you to use that to upgrade to JamUp Pro, and still have some money left over for one of their expansion IAPs.

To enter, all you need to do is upload a video of you using JamUp (Lite, which is free, or Pro) and you're set. This is a really neat idea! It gets them more videos on YouTube and you $20.

The rules are straightforward:

Participants must make an original video demonstrating how far you're willing to go to win this contest. There are only three rules. Your video must use JamUp app (Lite or Pro), any interface is fine, and 1-3 minutes of run time.

This contest is running now through June 17th. For complete details and to submit your own video head over to their contest page.

I've never used this before, but I know Sean over at iOSMusician loves this one over all the other guitar apps.

Buy JamUp Lite on iTunes: Free

Buy JamUp Pro on iTunes: $9.99

Rheyne Funk Jam

Rheyne has a new jam video out, this time with a really funky sound. He's got his usual 3 iPads - running SoundPrism, Animoog, and Lemur - but I love the way the MIDI Fighter 3D controller is incorporated.
