This really is a first-of-its-kind game, but everyone likes to have some references. So think Myst (puzzle solving) meets Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego (detective treasure hunting) meets Bjork's Biophilia (musical explorations). This version of 3 Deaf Mice will live in a fun, 2D graphics environment that will emphasize sound, drawing the player's attention toward solving the audio challenges of the game.
As you dive into the 3 Deaf Mice world of immersive sonic experiences, you’ll find cool tools for exploring the multi-dimensions of voice, sound and music. Discover their story while playing with ear training, acoustics, music theory, film sound design and storytelling.
3 new apps join Audiobus today, including Portable Dandy!
Portable Dandy was released last month, with an update shortly there after to add new samples. This Audiobus update comes to us greatly delayed, and reveals an interesting insight into the Apple app review process. Apparently Apple doesn't give a shit about music apps without Audiobus either, because at no point in the first two versions did Apple actually play with the app! Seriously. They rejected it this time because one of the samples is a chick moaning. A fact that anyone would discover within the first minute of running the app. Suddenly Portable Dandy gets Audiobus and Apple decided it was worth spending a full minute with it.
The version released today has Audiobus, but does not have the chick moaning sample. If you've previously downloaded the app, this update will not delete your copy. Cherish your contraband!
Guitar Jam Tracks: Acoustic Blues was also updated with Audiobus. Developer Ninebuzz makes a whole range of Guitar Jam Tracks apps for various genres, but Acoustic Blues is the only one that has ever seen any update since 2010.
Sonoma Wire Works' Guitar Tone was also updated with Audiobus. This Universal app can be used in both the Input and Effect slots.
What's new in Guitar Tone v2.1.0:
Audiobus added, GuitarJack Model 2 24-bit firmware update and bug fixes.
Audiobus Input and Filter support now included: Record your guitar with the great sounds of GuitarTone in Audiobus enabled apps, like GarageBand, or filter the output of another app, like NLogSynth, before recording it.
GuitarJack Model 2 24-bit firmware update: Update firmware on your GuitarJack Model 2 iOS I/O interface to get full 24-bit recording and playback using apps that support those features. See sonomawireworks.com for instructions on how to update your firmware.
Now that we finally have a detailed video for Different Drummer, a new unique drum app comes to Audiobus!
Alas, it is also without a video at this time.
