Waldorf Attack Drums for iPad Overview

PantsOfDeath did another overview video, this time looking at the (somewhat maligned) drum synth by Waldorf. To his credit, Jon struggles through to produce some insane sounds by the end of it... unfortunately he ends up drowning himself out. Getting the audio levels balanced on app videos is hard. I still struggle with it on every single video that I do. This still a good no-bullshit overview of what the app can do, and how it does it.

haQ attaQ - PO-28 & iKaossilator - Ableton Link Tutorial

Jakob Haq did a short tutorial on how he's using Ableton Link to sync iKaossilator to a Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator, as seen in his jam video from yesterday. It's funny to see Korg WIST abandoned in the flagship Korg WIST app.
