PPG WaveGenerator has been updated with "bug fixes" and new support for background audio and Virutal MIDI In.

What's new:

  • Virtual MIDI in
  • Audio mix/ background mode
  • Improvements and bug fixes

Buy PPG WaveGenerator on iTunes: $19.99


Very nice news! I hope those unspecified bug fixes address some of the problems I've heard from folks on Twitter.

Here is a recent video from beta tester Geert Bevin, showing off what's coming in the next update, with Voice-per-channel MIDI on his Eigenharp Pico.

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

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).

Buy OSCNotation on iTunes: Free (iPhone)

MIDI Designer for iPhone Preview

Sean, from iOS Musician, has uploaded a short preview for the upcoming MIDI Designer for iPhone.

Video Description:

The MIDI Designer app for iPad / iPhone (support coming soon) allows you to design the perfect MIDI controller to fit your needs. This is quick demo of the iPhone version which will be available soon as a free update. What really sets this app apart from the Lemur iOS app is that you can design ON YOUR DEVICE.
