Daft Punk's latest single Get Lucky is playing everywhere. I heard it three times yesterday, including once on an Alt Rock station. Nile Rodgers' bassline on that track steals the show! Here are a couple of videos from this week that feature remixes of the song.
I don't usually post Gameboy stuff here, but let's face it; LSDJ was one of the original music apps. Here is Get Lucky 8-bit edition on an original Gameboy(DMG-01) by maudiojohn. This sounds so good it makes me want to dust off my old Gameboy!
DJ Raul Alonso remixed Get Lucky in Traktor DJ for iPhone. This video is also pretty instructive. He is using Display Recorder, so you get to see all the subtle tweaks he's doing. The subtle art of subtlety is important in DJing!
Long-time community member Ryan Hemeon has launched iOS MARS (Musicians App Resource Services), his own music app blog, with this preview of the MIDI Out coming soon to Rhism Guitarism as an In-App Purchase.
ImproVox (no relation) was also updated with Audiobus, and includes a suggestion to use it at the 512 rate in Audiobus.
What's new in ImproVox v2.20:
Audiobus Support!! This is out first release with Audiobus support, so we'd love to get your feedback on how it works, and what cool things you do with it. Email any questions or comments to email@example.com. We recommend using a frame rate of 512 for the best performance.
I only used my iPhone to make these sounds. I don't really prefer the way amp modeling sounds on the iPhone, but it is a really fast and convenient way to experiment with song ideas and layers.
Apps used in this video: iRig, Audiobus, Loopy and Amplitube. I recorded the sound into Logic Studio. I used the iRig to input my guitar sounds into my iPhone. I used a splitter on the output of my iRig. One output went into my line-in port on my Mac which was being recorded by Logic. The second output on the splitter I used to monitor the sound. If you monitor the sound from your Mac then you will notice audio lag, so I recommend using a splitter and monitoring straight from the iRig output.
