Roland have announced new keyboard controllers, which are USB-bus powered for use with iPad via the Camera Connection Kit.
The 88-key model has weighted piano-style keys, while the 49-key version has more traditional synth-action keys. I am intensely amused by the idea of the massive A-88 plugged into an iPad. Pricing and release dates are not mentioned.
One Red Dog has announced the latest Arctic update should be live on your local iTunes, with 64 Presets from Sunsine Audio.
This is awesome news and I'm not just saying that because they are both sponsors! Objectively; everyone comments about how much they appreciate Sunsine's sound designs.
Arctic had the interesting idea of releasing with a whole bunch of community made presets, but this was a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it launched with a lot of presets for various genres. On the other hand though, there was no normalization, everyone made the sounds with their own monitoring environments leading to some being too quite and others too loud.
Now you get those and a truly professional pack for free!
