- Various minor bugfixes and improvements
What's new in NanoStudio v1.44:
Updated to Audiobus SDK 2.1.2.
* Due to this change, NanoStudio V1.44 now requires iOS 7 or later. iOS 5/6 users may still download V1.43 from the app store.
What's new in Arctic ProSynth v1.3:
- Audiobus 2.1 for iOS 8
- Support for Audiobus State Saving
- Saving of aftertouch routing when set to off
- Fix for obscure bug in MIDI handler when switching apps

AtomoSynth, makers of fine Peruvian synthesizers, share my love of analog synths and Genome! In this video, via MATRIXSYNTH, two of their KOE synthesizers are sequenced with the app using the KOEs' built in MIDI/CV converter.

hearEQ, the Universal iOS ear trainer designed specifically for studying EQ, was updated with a couple of $2 IAP add-ons. hearEQ was released in April, and greatly impressed me.
What's new in hearEQ v1.2:
New “sliding” learn page, two new user-requested add-ons, and various performance enhancements.
A decibel (dB) is a measure of loudness, so the greater the dB, the greater the EQ effect. Experiment with different dB levels on our brand new LEARN PAGE! Just slide your finger up and down on each frequency, and you'll hear the filter come in and out.
We’ve been getting some excellent feedback from our users, and have acted on that feedback by integrating two new add-ons:
• Want to train your ears just like the experts? "Pink noise" is a special type of sound used for ear-training, and this add-on integrates seamlessly with hearEQ.
• Once you’ve mastered hearEQ’s normal exercises, grab the "Advanced EQ" add-on to hone your EQ skills with lower-dB filters.
Perplex On posted another exceptional music video, using lots of different gear including a tricked out tupperwear controller for Impaktor. He gives a good account of what's happening in the video description.
This shows a live and uncut homestudio improvisation with an iPad using the drumsynth Impaktor (with the help of pimped Tupperware), Ableton Push, Reaktor's Serenade controlled by a Leap Motion Sensor and an induction coil for recording some electromegnatic noise.
