Logic Remote

Today Apple finally released the long awaited Logic Pro X for Mac, and with it a new Logic Remote app for iPad. This is not the Logic Pro for iPad that many were expecting, but it is still fairly impressive in its own way, allowing far more than simple mixer controls! CDM has a full run-down on Logic Pro X and the new Logic Remote app.

Logic Remote is an iPad companion app for Logic Pro X on the Mac.

Best Thing In My Life - Played on iPad

Reader Maria is celebrating her 25th wedding anniversary today, and to commemorate it she did a song on her iPad!

Video Description:

This is a video I did for a competition sponsored by the developers of the iPad app "Epic Synth" for the iPad Musician Group.

The rules were to play a song without stopping on the iPad. I chose one of the suggested apps: Guitarism and incorporated its new Triple Play Feature where I used three other apps via virtual midi (Thumbjam for the strings, iFretless Bass for the bass, and SoundPrism Pro for the Rhodes sound)

The song is an original called Best Thing In My Life and I wrote it for my husband and two sons. Hope you like it.

Anaphobia Destro

After over a year in the making, Anaphobia Destro is finally here! This Universal virtual analog synth builds on the features of the free Anaphobia Mini, originally released in 2011. I loved the sound of Anaphobia Mini, so I've been looking forward to this one.

Anaphobia Destro iTunes Description:

Destro is another monophonic virtual analog synthesizer and goes on where AnaMini ends. Once again a monophonic virtual analog synth, Destro features one VCO, two LFOs, a noise generator, a VCF and a VCA. On top of the synthesizer, Destro also provides a programmable step sequencer so you can create your own patterns and songs. Furthermore, Destro adds a noise generator and foldback distortion unit, as well as a 3-part drum synthesizer module!

Features (Synthesizer):

  • One main oscillator (VCO) with selectable wave type (saw, square, noise and sine) and scalable within the range of -1 and +1 octaves.
  • Two low frequency oscillators (LFO) with selectable wave type (saw, square, noise and sine) and selectable frequency/rate and depth. LFO1 modulates VCO1 frequency while LFO2 modulates VCF cutoff frequency. LFO’s synchronise to MIDI/sequencer tempo at 1/32, 1/16, 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 1, 2, 4, 8 or 16 notes.
  • One VCA with fully customizable ADSR(A) envelope.
  • One 24dB/octave VCF with three filter types (Low Pass, High Pass and Band Pass), selectable cutoff frequency and resonance and a fully customisable ADSR(A) envelope.
  • One noise generator with fully customisable ADSR(A) envelope.
  • Foldback distortion unit with adjustable threshold.

Features (Sequencer):

  • 4 beats-per-pattern, 4 steps per beat step sequencer.
  • Adjustable tempo from 20-200BPM.
  • Supports note on, note off and legato commands.
  • Supports MIDI Clock IN synchronisation

Features (drum synthesizer)

  • Bass drum, snare drum and hihat parts, using the same synthesizer technology as the main synthesizer.
  • Each part has its own track in the sequencer.

Audiobus support is promised to "follow soon," but given the development time on this I wouldn't hold my breath for the soon part.
