StompBox on sale for 50% off!

Wow there sure are a lot of these guitar effects apps, and little wonder considering the price of some pedals!

4Pockets Audio has their own, and it is on sale now for only $10. This looks like a great deal, since there is only 1 IAP and it is a mere $4 for a looper.

I compared the features between this and AmpliTube and I am kind of puzzled. Why do these guys both have FTP export? That seems so anachronistic. Don't get me wrong, I love to get down and nerdy with my File Transfer Protocoling, but who is really using this? Why is this a bullet point for both of these apps? JamUp Pro needs to step up and offer FTP and Usenet; export directly to alt.binaries.mp3!

Here is a demo from 4Pockets, featuring Brazilian Guitarist Marcos Klien.

DJ Remixer2 update improves BPM detection

This is great morning for apps designed to take advantage of the iPad interface! There are a lot of DJ apps out there replicating a turntable setup, but this little $3 gem seems like the only one trying to do something new and modern.

Today's update brings:
• Improved BPM detection algorithm.
• New instant mode (seek to different measures without breaking the beat)
• Master BPM can be set to manual.

The Patch Preview window will be handy for keeping track of your patches! Things can get really deep in this one. Check out my video review if you're not familiar with, what is still, one of the best synths designed to make use of touch interfaces.

AmpliTube Fender gets a big update!

IK Multimedia has updated the Fender range of AmpliTube apps with a whole bunch of new features!

• New Mixer/Recorder section with loop points, visual metronome, tap tempo
• Digital audio in/out support
• MIDI support
• Audio Copy/Paste
• Retina display support
• Restore In-App purchases
• New export via SoundCloud and FTP

MIDI and ACP are always welcomed additions to any app! These are the same changes that were updated to the regular version of AmpliTube, a month ago.

The fact that this is splintered into 4 "Fender" versions, plus 5 unbranded "AmpliTube" versions is kind of crazy. I guess since the only IAP in this is 8-track recording on iPad, and 4-track recording on iPhone, that isn't too annoying. The normal AmpliTube has many IAPs, so if you use both an iPhone and an iPad you'd have to buy them twice! JamUp (still on sale), is their nearest competitor feature-wise and that is Universal. JamUp is also full of $10 IAPs though, so perhaps buying two versions of AmpliTube is cheaper.

I'm not a guitarist, so which is the better app/deal?

MIDI Guitar - Universal Polyphonic Guitar to MIDI converter

Reader marlow77 pointed out the recently released MIDI Guitar app. This Guitar to MIDI converter is similar to Audio MIDI Connect, offering WiFi MIDI, CoreMIDI and Virtual MIDI.

In fact it is so similar to Audio MIDI Connect, I asked marlow77 what he thought of the two. Here is his synopsis:

Audio MIDI Connect is great, but it doesn't have polyphony. Both are pretty comparable when they are in mono mode, except that Audio MIDI Connect does allow recording and then converting to midi and DSMIDI WiFi compatibility. Also MIDI Guitar has a great sensitivity control that helps control polyphony chaos under some conditions.

MIDI Guitar is most effective with 3-4 note chords. However it does seem to be pretty CPU intesive because some apps struggle in the background. Surprisingly, Addictive worked very well in the background with Midi Guitar on my Ipad 1.

The app is free. To actually use the MIDI it is converting though, you'll need to cough up for an In App Purchase. The current price of the IAP is $5, but the iTunes description says it is 75% off, so I assume that will go up to $20 in a hurry! Without the IAP it will only play internal Piano samples.

There is a brief demo video from the developer. He notes that it works best with a guitar interface connected to your iDevice.
