No iOS Update this week, but Sweetwater does have a look at the new MFi(Made for iPhone) mic by Shure. This looks a tad gimmicky, but the feature set is pretty impressive. It's got on-board headphone monitoring built into the mic, along with several DSP recording profiles! It even supports Android with an OTG(On The Go) cable.
Synth Anatomy has released a preset pack for Lorentz, offering 40 presets and 100 Arpeggio Sounds for €2.50
PolyTouch Expansion for Lorentz IOS Synthesizer will be available between 26-27 September. The library contains standard sounds to very crazy sounds like drones. The package will coming with 40 Sound Presets and 100 Arpeggio Sounds.
The library is available here for pre-order at the moment for an introduction price of 2.50 € (Regular Price 5 €) (until 30 October)
The library will be sent out manually. Please see this not as a business but more than a donation for the activity of the blog and video content of Synth Anatomy. Other bloggers use Patreon and other systems but personally, I love to give something to my donators back. I hope you understand this why the library isn't free
A Box In The Sea is back with another mix of iOS apps and hardware. His hardware collection has expanded to include a LinnStrument and a modular synth! Here he jams on it all with Samplr providing haunting-ethereal pretty shit.
This is a continuation from my last piece. Because the Linnstrument offers so much sonic control and expression, I find myself completely rethinking how I create a patch. I wanted to further explore simultaneous multi-event generation but this time only with the Linnstrument. I'm using the Animodule Gate_Mod plus the SSF URA to help decide when I trigger a gate, 1. if it gets passed to the Gate_Mod and 2. how long to delay the gate. The result triggers an envelope/VCA combo being fed by the Nebulae (whose files are being cycled by the Phosgene's EOD output). All melodic sounds are coming from Braids in FM, TTVV and FFFF modes and processed through the Erbe Verb, Clouds, Three Sisters, PGH Filter, Red Panda Particle, Seppuku delay and Montreal Assembly Count to Five.
I'm using the Linnstrument in split mode where one side is CC faders (so I can manipulate multiple parameters at once) and the other side is notes. I'm also using the Linn with the Machinedrum to trigger the 16 samples I've loaded.
I prerecorded the main melody into sampler which I'm playing to the previously recorded Braids sounds. I'm getting 2 things out of doing this 1. I suck at multitrack recording and I'm trying to wrap my head around how I can use it for what I'm doing and 2. I knew there would be a natural delay and missed notes because I don't record on a grid and I wanted that overlapping sonic crisscross/collision of notes.

Coldcut's Matt Black was at MusicTechFest Scandinavia back in May. The video from that presentation has now been available! Here Matt shows off his NinjaJamm app and promotes touch devices as capable music-making platforms.
