Audanika Harmony Theory Blog

Audanika, makers of Sound Prism, announced today the launch of the Audanika Harmony Theory Blog.

This will be a weekly series of music theory tutorials. I'm very excited about the educational potential here! It is a great challenge to explain music theory; which I avoid entirely in my own videos by going for a more intuitive understanding of harmonics through synthesis. There is a lot of value in understanding music theory though. It is not just for pretentious Prog!

The whole series is based on their unique approach to harmony theory, which they call the Symmetry Model. iPad apps, I'll let you guess which one, will be featured for demonstrating the theory. This should make it easy for everyone reading this to follow along! Best of all every "episode" will be a short 5-10 minute read, with lots of pictures and even a video.

Lesson One starts with the three basic models of the Western tonal system, along with a helpful video to demonstrate them!

Buy Traktor DJ on iTunes: $19.99


This is a very exciting development for iOS music apps! Traktor has some of the best effects in the world of DJ software, so having access to 8 of those on the go is very nice! There are some additional features in here that are equally exciting. The harmonic mixing, eluded to in their Intelligent Browser blurb, was previously only available on iOS with Mixed In Key's iMashup. The ability to sync sets made on Traktor DJ with Traktor Pro, via Dropbox, will be gratefully welcomed by existing Traktor users.

Nick Batt, from Sonic Touch, shares an interesting encounter he had with the app at NAMM, involving blacked-out SUVs and undisclosed locations. You'll also find the official promo video, with Richie Hawtin, in his Sonic State article.

DJ Tech Tools' Head-Tool Ean Golden already has an excellent review and video up! He's using an HDMI recorder, so the video quality is excellent, but you can't see his finger presses. Fortunately he switches to an over-the-shoulder shot for his performance.
