MTBe - MIDI Test Box eco

Yesterday I reported on MIDI Test Box for iPhone being "On Sale" for free, but this seems to have been an error...
And for once the error wasn't mine! According to the Dyselxia Software website:

MIDI TEST BOX was accidentally put up on the iTunes store for Free for 2 days, so some people got a bargain!

For those of you that missed the "bargain" there is a new Universal and stripped down version of MIDI Test Box that is actually intended to be available for free.

Visual Bass

Visual Bass is a new iPad app designed to be both playable and instructive for Bass players.

iTunes Description:

Buy Visual Bass on iTunes: $2.99

Visual Bass is a simple but powerful tool which will help you to understand the bass fretboard in a whole new way! A nine fret area of the neck is displayed and the root note can be changed to the central fret of any string, this allows you to learn and visualise scales and arpeggios anywhere on the instrument.

Select any combination of intervals to create scales, modes, chords, arpeggios or whatever you like. You can choose to display intervals on the fretboard or just dots for a simpler look.

Visual Bass has a built in library of musical formulas including all of the most common scales and chords, and lots of unusual ones for you to explore as well.

After creating a scale or selecting one from the library, the intelligent display will tell you what type or scale or arpeggio your formula spells, and the built in player can play it for you either harmonically or melodically.

The tuning of all four strings can also be adjusted to any note!

Confused? Apparently Apple's app review team was too, so Dyslexia put out a demo video specifically for them.

Review: MPC Fly

Nekkron99 has done a fascinating and disappointing review of the new MPC Fly, which is now -- finally -- shipping! He gets right into what I'm sure many of you are curious to know: iMPC is kind of shit, so how does this thing perform with BeatMaker 2?

I had intended to do a review of my own, but it was recently revealed that it only offers a Lightning connector.
(Correction: Apparently you can get a 30-pin version, but only from Akai directly.)

I get the impression from Nekkron that my review video would have consisted entirely of me huddled in a corner, sobbing an incoherent manifesto on the importance of MIDI standardization. Audenonic has posted a guide for a pain-in-the-ass workaround with their MIDIBridge ($9) app; which includes the encouraging phrase, "Repeat the above 15 more times."

The Flaming Lips Use Sylo Synth!

Tim Warren, on the MATRIXSYNTH Facebook Lounge, spotted Wooji's old Sylo Synth app in this short Flaming Lips clip.
