Ableton Live on the iPad with Splashtop 2

Nakano Syun took the latest version of Splashtop on a test-drive with Ableton Live. This is a great idea! I love Splashtop, it is easily the best remote desktop app for the iPad. However there is a tiny bit of latency, just a bit, but it makes everything feel sluggish. I don't know if I'd rush out to buy it just do to this, but the results are good.

Painful Googlish translation from Japanese:

Just as easy to operate. Create account to download apps, just put a soft light to the main machine. Or not it will go up there Once you have purchased crunchy app? Easily connected. I only thought is about to launch the app.

What I think he is trying to say, based on my own experience with Splashtop 2:

Ableton is just as easy to operate on the iPad. Create an account with Splashtop and install the Splashtop Streamer companion app on your computer (Mac or PC). You just need to purchase the iPad app, and you will automatically see your computer listed. This makes it easy to connect! Getting onto your computer from the iPad is as easy as launching the app.

The new version of Splashtop is really that easy. You don't have to configure anything; it creates all of the connections for you based on your account. The iPad app is $2, but the Streamer and service are totally free!

"Inter-App Audio will pose no threat to Audiobus"

According to Palm Sounds, an Apple insider has confirmed:

"there is no feature in iOS 6 that can be described by the phrase 'inter-app audio'"

This corroborates what I reported immediately following WWDC:
Apple sacrifices unbaptized babies, kills Audiobus!

There was a resurgence of murmuring about this yesterday, among developers. Including some choice Tweets from Tempo Rubatos developer, Rolf Wöhrmann.

"I can only tell: Don't believe everything some big companies write on their slides ;-)"
"the multi is there, the inter won't come."

The "multi" he is referring to here is "Multi-route audio", another tidbit we got from Apple's WWDC slide. What does that actually mean? And what does that actually mean for apps? We'll have to wait to find out!

Rheyne & Robert - "Regarding my Smile"

Rheyne is back and this time he brought a friend! Unlike his usual free-wheeling-trippy-funk-jamming, this is a thought-out song with Robert Manganaro on guitar. His videos have got me to finally buy Lemur for iPad!

Beatsurfing MaxForLive - Turing Funck

Herrmutt Lobby is keeping busy. Today he's showing off Beatsurfing with a MaxForLive (Ableton) device that will quantize MIDI input. But whatever, man, this sounds funcking awesome!

Video Details:

Herrmutt Lobby playing Turing Funck with an unquantized scene, and then the same with a QUANTIZE patch made by NONAGON for Maxforlive.

Dharmatronix - Danger Bot

It is always a challenge for every musician to get heard. A lot of people will post videos on YouTube, but they are often as boring as watching someone hit the Play button. Dharmatronix had the clever idea of making a simple music video using the iPad apps TouchViz and Vjay. The music is from "a combo of ipad and cpu", but you won't see any of that. Just the Danger Bot!

You can find some videos of the actual music making progress on his YouTube channel as SpaceAje.

Buy TouchViz on iTunes: $9.99

Buy Vjay on iTunes: $9.99 (On Sale, from $19.99)
