Borderlands Granular Released!

The long awaited Borderlands Granular has finally been approved by Apple! This is a neat new take on sample-based granular fun, with an interface designed for the iPad that is quite similar to the popular TC-11 synth. Thanks to reader Pablof79 for the heads-up!

iTunes Description:

Borderlands Granular is a new musical instrument for the iPad.

Explore, touch, and transform sound with this new interface for granular synthesis, a technique that involves the superposition of small fragments of sound, or grains, to create complex, evolving timbres and textures.

Borderlands Granular emphasizes gestural interaction over knobs and sliders. Create, drag, and throw pulsing collections of grains over a landscape of audio files, or use the built-in accelerometer to sculpt sound with gravity. Record and share performances on the web.

NOTE: Borderlands Granular is designed for iPad 2 and 3. It will run on the iPad 1, but with slower performance due to the heavy requirements of the audio processing.

Buy Borderlands Granular on iTunes: $3.99

Presently importing your own samples is limited to iTunes file-sharing. That is a bit of a bummer, but at least you can get them in there somehow! Exporting is also limited to SoundCloud and iTunes. Hopefully future updates will add to those options!

There is a nice interactive tutorial built into the app, along with this video to help give you an idea of how it works.


OSCNotation is a free iPhone app for transcribing musical notation from OpenSoundControl (OSC) data, in real-time!

I can't even begin to explain why this amuses me, but it sounds like such a great idea! How has no one thought of this before?

iTunes Description:

With OSCNotation, live-coders and computer musicians can integrate instrumentalist into their performance by sending OSC messages to display musical notation on their collaborators' iPhones or iPods. Rhythm and note values are updated independently, so they may easily transpose a pattern while keeping the rhythm intact (or vice-versa).

Music Studio iPhone Review

YouTuber JRESHOW has uploaded a review of working with Music Studio on the iPhone. It is worth noting this is a Universal app.

Video Description:

In this video I do a quick walk thru of Music Studio available in the app store for 14.99. There is also a free trial too! Music Studio is very simple to use and navigate around considering it is done on a phone. Add as many tracks as you want and they have a wide variety of drums, instruments and keyboards. I don't have much experience making beats and I was able to make some pretty cool beats in just a few minutes.
