Rheyne is putting his new Rheyne Jammer to good use in this latest video with lots of apps and gear!
Live looping with a DSI MoPho keyboard, an Akai MPD26 controlling NI's Kontakt, three iPads running Sunrizer, Lemur, and Magellan, an iTouch running SoundPrism Pro which is sending MIDI notes to Sunrizer via the iConnectMIDI, and a DJ TechTools MIDI Fighter 3D using the "MF3D Launcher" script created by Tomash Ghzegovsky.
All audio is passed through a PreSonus 1818VSL connected to a Macbook Pro running Ableton Live. All loops are recorded live. Feel free to ask questions below, or through Facebook and Twitter (links at the top).
A new tonal harmony teaching tool has been released, complete with a nice tutorial series to help you get started.
Mapping Tonal Harmony Pro has been envisioned as auxiliary material in the study of Tonal Harmony. The main objective of this app is to provide the student, teachers, composers and/or songwriters with a tool that will aid them in hearing, analyzing, foreseeing and composing harmonic progressions without struggle, in all keys alike.
The map has seven levels of complexity, from the basic diatonic neighborhood advanced secondary functions in major and minor modes and is viewable in all 12 keys and enharmonic spellings, plus a functional view (relative to the tonic). Each level is also accompanied by its respective workbook available at mDecks.com for further study and research.
I am very excited about this one, I'm always looking for a new excuse to play with Granular, but this is only available for iPads running iOS 6! I spoke with the developer about the iOS 6 requirement this morning, and he says it was a mistake in the version sent to Apple. He intends on adding iOS 5 support!
In the meantime here is a great demo video showing off a lot of the features.

It's nice of IK to be up front about the In-App Purchases, but I cannot find the price on those; no one has purchased them on iTunes yet, and their website is not working at this time. Here is a very nice demo though!
