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?MADE WITH iOS
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:
It is an horizontal sequence of minor and major third, 3 semitones and 4 semitones. x+3+4+3+4+3+4+3+4 ect...
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.
Good news for guitarists! One of the most popular Universal amp/effects apps has added support for the Griffin Stompbox footswitch controller. That looks like a seriously nice deal; a full controller for about what you'd pay for a single hardware pedal. The update also adds a whole bunch of other new features:
- Tone sharing to share and download artist and user presets
- Griffin Technology StompBox support
- 64 slot preset manager
- New added Octave and Cry Wah effect
- New bass expansion package
- New boutique expansion package
- Ultra low latency, 50% improvement
- Phrase Sampler added undo support
- Continuous speed adjust in iTunes JAM player
They've also put the app on sale, at 50% off, so you can save $10 to spend on some In-App Purchases.
Here's a product demo from Griffin for the Stompbox. I'm really tempted to get the pair to run synths through the effects.
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!
After the 30 second intro, this iPad-only cover of Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe sounds amazing. These guys got some very professional results using just Garageband for iPad! Check out Vice Vega on YouTube for more pop covers.
