Camera Connection Kit Hack for iPhone

One of the biggest problems with music apps on iPhone is the lack of Camera Connection Kit support from Apple. This prevents you from using USB devices like MIDI keyboards or a recording interface. A Cydia (Jailbreak) App released today will let you do both!

CameraConnector (available on repository BigBoss for $1) says it only works for HID USB devices, like mice and typing keyboards, but reader Giusoares has got it working with a lot more!

Googlish + Me Translation:

I've confirmed my USB devices are recognized:
Tascam us 800 USB
MIDI USB universal
Behringer USB stereo interface
Guitar Link USB

Today during the day I will do recording tests to see how they behave, demonstrating the novelty. I'll make a video to show you guys. I did the test on the iPhone 4.

Awesome news for iPhone musicians! Note that this only works on iOS 5.0+. Let me know if anyone gets this working on USB-MIDI keyboards as well. I assume it should, if the MIDI-USB adapter did.

Loop Twister gets Pasteboard Importing!

I instantly fell in love with Loop Twister when I reviewed it in April. It is a very tactile and easy way to mix up some lively glitchy loops. It has been one of my secret weapons for making loops for use in other apps, but now we can finally import loops from other sources to twist and mangle them in here!

New Feature Highlights

  • Loops have their own names and can be quickly launched from a loop browser.
  • Bank Manager allows to switch between sets of loops and import new audio from General Pasteboard and iTunes documents folder to Loop Twister banks.
  • You can save up to 10 different patterns with loops for instant recalling in the future.
  • Your live performance can be recorded to a WAV file and copied to external computer using iTunes.
  • Trigger mode allows you to manually launch different parts of loops and effects patterns (synchronously) during playback.

Buy Loop Twister on iTunes: $2.99

Very nice! Recording performances was greatly missed in the initial release; that was my chief criticism in the review.

There is some weirdness going on with the pricing on iTunes, it is supposed to come down to $1.99 for an update sale, but developer Waveforms is unsure of when it will kick in. I'll update this when I see it!

Ambient Summer Jam

YouTuber Taskent99 uploaded an ambient piece, using app theresAholeInThePan, with the seriously cool Mixtape Alpha.

Really moving stuff! If more ambient was like this, there would be more ambient fans.

Sunsine Audio releases Animation Vol 2 - Emulation

Sunsine Audio has a new preset pack for Animoog, it is on sale now for $3.99, or buy the subscription pack to get it and others!

Animation Vol 2 - Emulation

124 presets designed to emulate the classic sounds of yesteryear. You heard us, we've almost completely ignored the fundamental tool in Animoog; the Anisotropic engine. While it provides for amazing complexity and beautiful, wild sounds, it also tends to lend a certain flavor to everything. That flavor is decidedly un-moog-ish most of the time. What happens when you ignore it? We ended up with some the most squelchy, thick analog sounding tones to come out of an iPhone or iPad ever.

In fact, you'll swear you have a Model 55 in front of you! We can safely say this having spent considerable time in front of a real Model 55 ourselves. If you're seeking classic Moog tones, search no further. Grab this follow up to our bestselling pack ever, fool your friends, neighbors and audience for less than the price of a set of patch cables!

That all sounds good, but wait until you hear how this demo sounds!

This song was created entirely with the Ipad 2. It is recorded in Logic Pro. I used following apps:

  2. Improvox (Vocal Parts/ Pads)
  3. Awesome Xylophone (Lead Sound)
  4. Orphion (Pad / Bass)
  5. Madpad (Drums / Percussions)
  6. iRig Mic (Vocal Recording / Improvox)
