Q&A with One Red Dog's Peter Johnson

ProMusicApps has an interview up with Arctic & Molten developer Peter Johnson. It's a good read! Here is an interesting highlight:

So what can we expect to see for the remainder of 2012 out of One Red Dog Media?

I’m busy developing a major overhaul of Arctic with a new synth engine. In collaboration with a well-respected professional sound designer, the new app will include a new collection of presets. I hope this will address a lot of people’s complaints with Arctic’s factory sounds. The synth engine is also massive; we’ve managed to make some really significant improvements. As the development of this has been very big, it will probably be released as a new app rather than an update. I’ve also been working on a very exciting new product with an ARIA award-winning artist, but that’s all I’m going to say for now!

iOS Music Meet - Berlin

Germany is getting a big event full of iOS Music Making goodness from JustMusic and CDR. The iOS Music Meet will feature, "the first in a series of events that explores a world of music creation from an iOS perspective."

Bringing together artists, App developers, hardware manufacturers and enthusiasts alike the iOS Music Meet is the place to check out some of the latest technology available for the iOS platform with the people making it happen in an informal nurturing environment.


Hands On Area - From beat programming, DJing and mixing to recording and sound design attendees will have the chance to check out what the iOS platform has to offer with the support from our team of experienced producers and product specialists who will be on hand to set you up, answer your questions and offer advice.
Workflow production presentations - Delivered by leading music producers these workshops will highlight the use of iOS platform for creating music in a variety of creative scenarios.

All of this is going on Thursday July 12th in Berlin. Suspiciously all of their event and promotional information is in English, so I think they are just fucking with everyone outside of Germany. Why do you play with my emotions?


Even if you can't get out to Berlin, your music can! They've got a "MADE WITH iOS Playlist" that will be DJ curated and played that night. To submit your own music for consideration head on over to their SoundCloud dropbox and upload your own iOS-only tracks.

Here is the trailer for the event:

Vertical axis increment by semitones. it allow to augment or diminish any notes of the simples chords you get when you just play 4 consecutive notes on a horizontal line. The big yellow circles on top permute all minor and major intervals.

Animoog update adds Restore Purchases!

I know a lot of people have been waiting for this one! Gatearray was the first to let me know about it. Finally you can restore any past purchases on both versions of Animoog, including B.A.S.E.!

Unfortunately you cannot restore purchases between the apps. So if you bought a pack on Animoog for iPad it will not be restored on the iPhone version. Naturally, that was the first thing I tried. Let's hope this is the next step from Moog!

Buy Animoog on iTunes: $29.99

Buy Animoog for iPhone on iTunes: $9.99
