There was a surprising amount of interest in Puremagnetik's Clap Box, but no example of what it can actually do! YouTube channel Music & Gear Tutorials took a deep look at the sound design options in this Clap Trap emulator.
Samson has expanded their Carbon keyboard line with a 61 Key model, for $150. The iPad "dock" on this thing looks like it is nothing more than a flimsy slit, but it is able to power itself from the iPad alone. Here is a little demo from Summer NAMM 2012.
At Winter NAMM we saw the Carbon 49 (chessy video), which is available now for $89.
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.
