AudioShare is Free Today Only!

AudioShare is free today! This might be part of one of those Free App of the Day programs, so don't hesitate and grab it now! AudioShare is one of the most useful utilities for iOS music apps. It allows you to do simple recordings from any Audiobus compatible app, or AudioPaste/Pasteboard, and then manage your individual samples from one app.

I use this a lot, especially when so many apps don't have their own internal recorder. I'm pretty amazed that Kymatica is just giving it away for even a second! I hope this will grow the user-base and get more developers interested in supporting the useful Export to AudioShare SDK for simple sample sharing.

Review: DR-OM

Reader Dullbedsitblogger reviewed DR-OM, the Universal Drone-Om app full of rich and interesting sounds. Dullbedsitblogger did a great job of capturing those sounds using Audiobus to record into Garageband. At about 6 minutes in he starts to share his thoughts and uses for the app. The video ends with a snippet from his band, The Large Veiny Members, playing a song called Hallucinati-Om; featuring DR-OM and his previously reviewed Noisemusick. You can hear the whole performance here.

Serato Remote

Native Instruments Traktor and Serato Scratch fans have been making their own iOS MIDI interfaces since TouchOSC was first released back in 2008. While Native Instruments were the first with a respectable port of Traktor for iOS, Serato are the first to release their own iOS controller for their DJ platform: Serato Remote for iPad.

It looks great, with a lot of features in tow, though I can't help but wonder if a controller app like this is 5 years too late to the party.

Serato Remote iTunes Description:

Serato Remote will connect seamlessly to your Serato laptop software and work with all supported Scratch Live and Serato DJ hardware.

Here's an excellent demo by Serato's Rui, aka DJ KATANA, at what looks like the DJ Tech Tools office.

Jazz Transposer

Jazz Transposer for iPad is a new melody transposer which allows you to import your own favorite song melodies for transposition. It does this from within the app, providing links to sound libraries that gleefully ignore the stupider parts of copyright law; rather than forcing you to hunt them down yourself, or charge you exorbitant IAPs.

Jazz Transposer iTunes Description:

Jazz Transposer’s functionality is targeted at performing musicians and is uniquely positioned for that all-too-common scenario of the “guest singer” and his/her awkward key choice!! “I’d like to do ‘When The Saints Go Marching In’ in Db”. While plenty of Apps will quickly provide the appropriate chord sequence, only Jazz Transposer will instantly display the melody AND the chords in the new key.

Because most (useful) melodies are protected by copyright, Jazz Transposer cannot provide such files in the purchase, however the internet if full of usable files and Jazz Transposer is able to import these and store them directly into your song list. Indeed Jazz Transposer will read any MusicXML file including your own compositions as long as they are in XML format.

To start filling your song list within a minute or two of your purchase of Jazz Transposer, click on the shopping cart icon, select a download from the list (we have provided links to some popular song libraries for you, many of which are free of charge) and click “Download”.

To start using Jazz Transposer, click on “Songs”, select a title, choose the instrument you are playing, C, Bb, Eb etc and the key which your band is playing it in. The score will display in your key and now you can play it comfortably with your band!

You can build, edit and copy set lists which will remember your selected keys.

If your transposition takes the melody out of range for your instrument, just touch the “octave” button and bring it back into your comfort zone.
