Sweetwater iOS Update is back, demoing the FourTrack recording app and Sonoma Wire Works Guitar Jack. Mitch finishes up with a few tips on getting an iPad 3 fitting to the Alesis I/O dock.
Jim McLaren, member of Incura and frequently featured jammer, has a new Jim's Tips & Tricks video. This tutorial looks at setting up Shredder as a Guitar Pitch to MIDI converter, and running that into a Moog Little Phatty.
The Phatty sounds great, but it seems like Shredder is having a very hard time processing the actual shredding. I'd be interested to see if he gets better results with Audio MIDI Connect, which is supposed to be excellent at this task.
MIDI Designer developer, Dan Rosenstark, has a great video demonstrating the new Snap to Value feature coming to MIDI Designer.
MIDI Designer 1.3.7 for iPad introduces Snap to Value. Snap to Value lets a button that has a knob (slider, crossfader or X-Y Pad) snap to a particular value over a fixed amount of time. This video shows you how to set up Snap to Value in MIDI Designer, and scratches the surface a tiny bit on the possibilities of this powerful new feature in 1.3.7. MIDI Designer Pro and MIDI Designer Lite 1.3.7 for iPad will be available before July 22, 2012.

I love this video MatrixSynth found! A journey through a room full of synths. All 4 walls are covered in geary goodness. Yet the music you're hearing is using none of that! It is 2 iPads running NLogSynth Pro, with help from Phaedra sequencer.
It was a year ago today that I started Everyone Can Play Music, making this is ECPM's 1st Birthday! Thank you very much to everyone that has sent me emails of encouragement and letting me know how much the series means to you. The response to this series has been amazing. Each video has 5x more views than I had even hoped!
I'd also like to thank Palm Sounds, MatrixSynth, iOS Musician, and the communities of Reddit. When I was just starting out with a crappy Rockband mic and a dream, these sites all helped me reach you guys!
This lesson is an introduction to synthesizing Lead parts; making a Super Saw out of just 2 Oscillators!
