Smite Matter is the first to get up a review for Waldorf's Nave synthesizer, expected to arrive soon on iPad!
From the review:
Nave is a powerful twin wavetable oscillator synthesizer with a single classic oscillator (with all the basic waveforms) and the pulse racing “Uberwave” function. You have hands on control over numerous options to tweak the many choices of wavetables, (in full screen “Edit” mode) 7 different 3D views. Very fine tuning is easily done by touch to fully customize any wavetable. Full ADSR envelope controls over each oscillator, 2 multi waveform LFOs, fully adjustable pitch/bend wheels and modulation options at every corner. The amount of modulation options really are nothing short of amazing.
At last count there were 500 plus factory presets being shipped with Nave at launch. Nave is pure sound design heaven!
On Twitter Smite was asked about iPad 2 compatibility, which Rolf Wöhrmann answered with: "iPad2 is ok. iPad1 won't work."

Gestrument developer Jesper Nordin has been working on integrating his iPad app with Microsoft's Kinect; the camera that tracks objects in motion. This allows whole-body gestures to be your gestrument instrument! Here is a demo of 3 possibly uses, including playing with a symphony and some really high-class artsy interpretive dance!
Gestrument controlled by a Kinect camera! Download our free Beta software to connect your own Kinect to Gestrument at www.gestrument.com.
Performances in the video by Jesper Nordin/Trio Trespassing, Oskar Landström/Jesper Nordin and TrioTrespassing/Västerås Sinfonietta conducted by Johannes Gustavsson.
