Aeolian Harp

iTunes Description:

The Aeolian Harp is named for Aeolus, the ancient Greek god of the wind. Wind harps are the oldest forms of automatic music. The app uses the wind harp as a metaphor and allows the user to create relaxing animations and sounds without musical knowledge.

Touches and strokes generate visualizations and sounds which evolve in time.

User defined parameter and color schemes can be used to explore the manifoldness of the underlying particle system.

The compass can be used to locate the following instruments in the four directions of the winds: Balalaika, Celtic Harp, Guitar, Gamelan, Guzheng, Kalimba, Koto, Marimba, Orchestral Harp, and Sitar. Each of these instruments can be assigned to a compass direction with a double tap on a cardinal point.

The acceleration sensor is used to simulate the impact of gravity on the flowing particles. (You must increase the impact of gravity in the parameter settings to see the effects.) Other parameters can be used to control the duration of the sounds. Endless loops, for instance, can be created by a reduction of the evaporation parameter and an increase of the elasticity of the particles.

Snapshots of the animation can be sent via e-mail.

Recommended for headphones and external speakers (especially the speakers of the iPod and iPhone may distort high and low sounds).

iTunes Description:

Robert Fripp, King Crimson, September 2014 : "We no longer take mellotrons on the road. Instead we take this iPad app"

Paul Nagle, Sound On Sound Magazine, February 2014 :
"An easy one to sum up, M3000 is an excellent achievement that ably demonstrates how far the iPad has come in a few short years. I'd take it over the mellotrons in my once-revered Emu Vintage Pro or my Roland JV2080 Vintage board any day. Highly Recommended."

For anyone remotely interested in what the iPad and iPhone can do for music creation, Aurora’s probably the best thing you can buy.

MusicTech Magazine
A powerful and flexible composition tool that’s even plausible as a small-scale production suite.

Review from Australia
I can't begin to tell you how much I love this program... I have to stop myself using it in bed because it just keeps me up all night.

I have bought almost all the iPad music apps I could find and Aurora is by far the most innovative and the best! On top of that, no other I have found lets me get right into the sounds like Aurora.

Music Radar
A truly inspiring production environment. If you're an iPad owner in the market for a portable production tool, you definitely won't want to pass this one up.

DJ_Simples - 5 Stars
Simply awesome, I thought the iPhone version was great, but this is in another league.

iJammer

iTunes Description:

iJammer is a "Jammer-style" CoreMIDI control surface for the iPad

iJammer doesn't produce any sound on it own, it is designed for playing hardware and software VST-style MIDI synthesizers via a CoreMIDI compatible interface connected to the dock connector or virtual MIDI instruments like IK Multimedia SampleTank® for iOS running on your iPad.

Please visit the app support website to see some amazing live demo videos and for the settings you will need to enable in the synth app you are using to have it work with the control surface.

Reviewer "M80 M80" in France, please check the app's website FAQ for a fix to your "stuck at the help screen" issue. It's an issue Apple created unfortunately with the 6.0.1 update, not a bug with the app, and is very easily fixed.

The scale patterns are very intuitive, and the built-in note guide makes it easy to learn to play!

The layout has independent mirror-image keyboards for the left and right hands.

Wikipedia has a great article about this style keyboard, just search for "Jammer Keyboard".

iJammer supports two independent MIDI channels and has a 9-octave range.

To play, simply touch the buttons. Buttons light up when playing

Multiple buttons may be touched at the same time to play chords.

You can slide between the buttons.

Touch the '?' icon to show the note names for each button.

Touch the MIDI connector icon to show the MIDI parameter controls.

To play, just touch the buttons. Multiple buttons may be touched at the same time to create chords.

The two sides are mirror images of each other.

Both sides may be transposed independently.

Touch the red or blue bars at the bottom of either side to transpose down or up one octave for that side.

The display above the bars shows the current octave for each side.

Touch the "?" icon at the lower right to display the note names.

Touch the MIDI connector icon at the upper left to display the MIDI controls.

You may select the and volume, MIDI channel, attack velocity, and semitone transposition (0-11) for the two sides independently.

All MIDI settings are saved when iJammer quits and restored the next time it is run.

Touch the '!' icon at the lower left to quiet any "stuck" notes if they occur.

Rotate the iPad to portrait orientation to display the help screen.

Touch any of the green highlighted links on the help page to go directly to webpages with additional information about iJammer and Jammer-style controllers.

Please visit the iJammmer app website for a live demonstration video.

Q: I just updated my iPad to iOS 6.0.1 and I'm stuck at the help screen!

A: Apple messed up the restoration of the Mute/Orientation switch state after the update. Please visit http://www.tradlessons.com/ios601mutefix.html or the app's website for a simple fix.

Here's the settings changes required for two popular synth apps:

IK Multimedia SampleTank:

- In Settings (touch the gear icon), enable "Background Audio"

Sonosaurus ThumbJam:

- In "Prefs", under "MIDI Control", in "MIDI General Options" enable "Use CoreMIDI" and "Active in Background"

Other CoreMIDI compatible synth apps will have similar settings.

HOW IT WORKS:
1. Pick a key to start playing the track.
2. Tap 'Chords' to see what chords are being played (rhythm)
3. Tap 'Scales' to see the scale charts for that key (lead)

PRACTICE TIPS:
Learn the chord progression for each track, and then jump over to practicing scales. Guess what? There are only 5 'shapes' of the pentatonic scale to memorize! Once you know them up and down, learn where they start for each key. Soon, you'll be able to solo over 99% of the music out there! Gain more versatility by playing in different modes (major/minor/blues major/blues minor) too.

WHAT IS THE PENTATONIC SCALE?
It simply means 5-note scale. It is widely used in virtually every style of music, and is one of the most important scales a guitarist can learn. There are 5 shapes, or finger patterns, to memorize. These never change; only the starting position changes for each key. Once you learn one key, the rest will come easy!

TIPS FOR THE SCALE CHARTS:
- Black dots are regular notes.
- Red dots are 'root notes'. These are notes of the key you are in.
- Blue dots are 'passing notes'. Including these notes puts you in a Blues mode.
