discchord Preset Design Contest: Jingle Bells

Just about everyone all over the world has a celebration around Winter Solstice. This is a time for us to come inside, get together, stay warm, and talk about how dumb the Southern Hemisphere is. Did you hear that Australia's largest export is wool? HAHA!

This month's preset design contest is a special one! For a start, it isn't even a contest. Sunsine Audio has a special gift for everyone that submits a preset this month!

This is also one everyone can enjoy, as we use the only Christmas song that makes no references to Christmas: Jingle Bells!

Contest Rules & Details:

We'll be using Beep Street's Sunrizer for its chilly tones. You don't have to make a bell sound, just something that sounds good with the Jingle Bells chorus! All presets submitted will be available as a pack on December 20th! Please get your submissions in before the 17th so I have time to record them all.

To email your submissions, first save the preset. Then from the preset window in Sunrizer hit the little button in the bottom-right and email it to:

contest@discchord.com

By submitting a preset you authorize me to share it, and for people to use it!

These are the notes of the Jingle Bells chorus, and it is this that I will be playing through your submissions at 120BPM.

Rhythm Studio Updated with new TB-3 mkII

Some of you may think of Rhythm Studio as a cheap version of Tabletop, but the developer doesn't! He's been working very hard on this update since Summer! I had an excellent conversation with him at the time, and he really knows his shit when it comes to emulating TB-303s. I can't wait to play with this TB-3 mkII!

What's new in 1.08

  • TB-3 mkII
  • iPhone 5 Support
  • Control Values in Transport

We recommend that you back up your songs files before you update the app.

IMPORTANT:
This latest update adds support for iPhone 5. In doing so we had to remove support for older devices because of the nature of the SDK. If you are using this on a iPhone 3G or iPod touch 2G please DO NOT install this update!

Buy Rhythm Studio on iTunes: $0.99 (On Sale, from $4.99)

Tutorial: Using Funkbox with Audiobus - Part 2

Synthetic Bits continues their tutorial series of Funkbox with Audiobus! This one is something I think a lot of people should watch, as it gets into how to record some tight loops in Loopy with MIDI!

Seriously, please watch this! I get so many emails from people wondering how to do things that are explained in this video. I know it is long, but it is worth it and even occasionally funny. If you can't watch it right now add it to your, YouTube Watch Later list!

This will be on your Audiobus Driver's test!
