Mixbox showed up on iTunes today as a free remixer, and to my great surprise it really is free! No ads, no IAPs, no nags. Just a free app that lets you import music from your iTunes library, which it conveniently slices into little clips on a multi-track.

YouTuber mtbsteve1 does a lot of demos for various guitar pedals on his channel. This week he's doing a series of videos demonstrating the various effects you can load up onto the DigiTech iStomp from your iPad. Sadly since the price was reduced to $40, the little customizable pedal seems to be sold out everywhere.
Reader Softcore put together a free Lemur template for iVCS3, allowing for lots of unique control and modulation of the new modular app! He's even put together a demo video of all of the great functionality included in here. While watching the video I was increasingly impressed by the amount of thought that has gone into the layout. Even if you aren't interested in either of the apps, I think everyone should be able to appreciate the amazing sound design opportunities presented in this design. To think that this is something made by a user for the community; for free! This is such an awesome time to own an iPad!
A walkthrough of the settings and features of iVCS3 Lemur template for controlling and modulating the iVCS3 iOS synth app.

nIGHTtIMEsCHOOLbUS, a duo which includes reader Otem Relik and his girlfriend Robin, have released an excellent music video for Swimming with You. The music was done entirely on an iPad, including vocals, while vacationing in Hawaii. This sounds quite dark for such a sunny vacation!
New music video from nIGHTtIMEsCHOOLbUS! This one took quite a while so I hope you all enjoy it.
A little back story on this one...
The music was all created on my ipad while we were vacationing in Hawaii and swimming with sea turtles. All Robin's vocals were recorded directly through the ipad mic while on a walk one night after we had returned.
The video was created entirely in after effects using various images and video over the course of a couple months.
