A free Ear Trainer has just arrived on iTunes!

iTunes Description:

This app will aid in developing a familiarity with the sounds of specific intervals and their physical separation on the fretboard in various scales. The focus of this app is on the seven modes of the major scale and their tonal flavors. Play with each scale to get used to the intervals involved and then test yourself by hitting the "play" button, which will begin the game. With practice, intervals can become distinct and recognizable sounds. Then, all of music can becomes more accessible and yet deeper in meaning.

Here is a little tutorial from Yonac on recording and exporting. It is all fairly obvious, but it is a good chance to hear the synth.

Finger Drumming Lesson 1

Apps For Music Production has started a new series on YouTube to teach Finger Drumming with BeatMaker 2!

The first finger-drumming tutorial from appsformusicproduction.com Each video will demonstrate a new rhythm or technique to practice and expand on and hopefully provide some creative inspiration along the way!

This is a good skill to learn if you want your drums to sound more dynamic and less quantized! When you get really good you can do whole songs free-style, as we saw in this video from Malveko. Thanks to Palm Sounds for bringing the first lesson to my attention.
