Everyone always packs every app with the same Roland 808 and 909 samples, but there were other equally quirky drum machines of that era! This sample pack has been converted for use in both NanoStudio and BeatMaker 2, to add some variety to your music.
STIX305 - Waveshaper
The SoundMaster Stix 305 is a very rare analogue drum machine from the early eighties. You get both the cheesy, mellow sound of the psychedelic 70s, plus the acid hats of the 80s ! This WaveShaper sample pack is a quite unique occasion to meet this very little known and lovely beat box. Your tracks will get a great retro sound, whether you are an electronic funk producer, and acid freak or a true analogue sound lover.
The Stix305 was recorded using some tube preamp and compressor and a vintage eq on top of it to keep the analogue vibe on the full recording chain.
- 43 One Hit Samples
- 3 Kits (Clean, Alt, Distorted)
- 3 .bmkz files for Beatmaker 2
- 3 .trg files for Nanostudio
- 13 Bonus loops in .wav format
I'm not sure what's going on here.
ONYX App's Spectrum Analyzer is usually $15. It was on sale last week for $10. The price came back up to $15 on Friday and now the price is down to $0.99. The app has never been that cheap before!
I wonder if this is an incident of price bouncing; a practice used to artificially keep an app relevant by frequently changing the price. Perhaps something went awry and they missed a digit when trying to set it to $9.99!
Here is a demo video from the developer.
MATRIXSYNTH found an interesting video featuring Korg's iMS-20 playing Daft Punk's Derezzed, which is then run through the real MS-20's external signal processor! This is used to generate a CV signal so that the iMS-20's notes are played on the MS-20. The Korg train continues into a KaossPad Mini and the whole thing is accompanied by a Korg Electribe MX playing drums.
You'll find lots more MS-20 videos on atoooy's YouTube channel.
Takashi Mizuhiki has updated his long running DXi FM Synthesizer with support for Audiobus!
DXi was first released way back in May of 2010. Incredibly in all of that time no one has attempted to dethrone DXi as the defacto FM synth for iOS. It is easy to say this is my favorite FM synth for iPad, because there are no alternatives, but it is also my favorite way to play with FM synthesis on any platform!
Development has continued to bring new features to keep DXi relevant in the ever changing iOS Music App space. Last October's update included both Background Audio and Virtual MIDI ports, and now we get to play with Audiobus too!
