Gamelan Gender

Gamelan app "Gender for iOS" has always had a confusing name. Gamelan instruments are not especially well known, and here in the West "gender" means something else all together from its Balinese formal name Gender Wayang. They've tried to reduce the confusion by renaming the app Gamelan Gender in an update that also includes IAA transport view.

What's new in Gamelan Gender v2.1.1:

  • Inter App Audio transport view added.
  • improvements in audio system.
  • better timing handling (player in its own thread).
  • latest Audiobus and The Amazing Audio Engine frameworks.
  • new App Store name: Gamelan Gender.

Fanfare: Yamaha DX7 II, Moog Sub 37 & Korg Gadget

Marcus Padrini from MusicApps.com.br did this cover of Fanfare for the Common Man on his hardware synths and Gadget. MATRIXSYNTH pointed out an eerie similarity to the Dr. Who theme that once you hear it you can't unhear it, even in in the original recording.

Correction: Marcus informed me that this is not a cover, but rather, "It is an original song inspired by Fanfare."

Fx: TC-Helicon Voice Live GTX (chorus and reverb for the DX7 II) and Zoom MS70 CDR (chorus, reverb and delay for the Sub 37).

Lachlan Mooney, who previously brought us a Roland Alpha Juno editor, has released a new iPhone MIDI controller with 3D Touch capabilities on compatible iPhone 6S/6S+ hardware! For non-compatible hardware you still get little XY pads for each of the notes. This one arrives with Virtual MIDI and a demo 3D Touch working with Animoog's Aftertouch control.

Miditure iTunes Description:

Miditure is a MIDI controller app for the iPhone, it can be used to control any instruments, apps, software and hardware that accept MIDI input.

Miditure has been designed to exploit the expressive potential offered by 3D Touch capable devices (iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus), but is compatible with older devices as well. Miditure includes a pad controller for sending MIDI note messages and an XY pad (XYZ pad if used with a 3D Touch capable device) for sending MIDI control change messages.

Each of the nine configurable pads can send from 1-4 notes with velocity, and on 3D Touch capable devices, polyphonic aftertouch. Velocity can be set to use the devices accelerometer or can be determined from the location of the touch that triggered the pad.

The XY (XYZ) pad can be configured to send control change messages for up to 3 controls per axis.

General Features:

  • Controls apps locally using coreMIDI, or control external software and hardware over Wi-Fi, or by using a compatible interface.
  • Save and load configurations
