Colin from The Sound Test Room did a walkthrough of the Apollo Series of apps. These are all very innovative utilities from Secret Base Designs, including the new Apollo Sound Injector that lets you stream audio over WIFI between apps! You can now buy the Apollo apps as part of a bundle that includes Nice To Be Your Friend Synth. The free Apollo Sound Injector is now included in the bundle because Apple won't let developers include free apps in bundles.
Jakob Haq has another haQ attaQ Let's Play, this time using Yellofier to get the creative juices flowing. I'm personally impressed with his results. It starts off sounding like Goats screaming, but ends up sounding surprisingly good!
If you've been interested in the huge library of sounds in Mellotronics M3000 app, but put off by their à la carte IAPs you'll be interested to know that you can now buy an Ultimate Bundle version. This comes with everything available for purchase in M3000, but not the new Joranotron.
Prepare your wallet and your storage for a shock though, as this one weighs 1.26 GB and costs $75!

YouTube is fucking up bad today. If you're coming to the site from an iPad, as 60% of you are, then playing videos will be a bit tricky. You'll no doubt have noticed that a simple tap will no longer play a video. This seems to be affecting all sites, all browsers, and both versions 7 and 8 of iOS. There are two three ways to get it to work though!
Update: ZenLizard posted in the comments here with the best work around! Simply tap below the Red Play button, about halfway between the button and the bottom of the embed. This is the easiest method to get them working.
The first is to simply keep tapping, but ryhtmically. I have no idea why that works, but a simple tap-tap-tap-tap as if you were trying to tap-tempo for 120BPM seems to work pretty well.
Alternatively you can just click on the white title of the embedded video. This will open a new tab directly to YouTube, where the video will play just fine. You can practice both methods on this video of a kitten playing with her tail.
