I believe that is the plan. Can't wait for Blur's Song 2.

WAAAAHOOOOO!

I like this type of music. Does someone know which scale should be used or in the example of Animoog which keys should be actvated/deactivated?

It sounds Indian to me, so I would recommend starting with Aeolian Dominant.

You should suggest that in the YouTube comments!

A-fucking-mazing.

I'm sad I sold my OP1, but now I have an iPad (the big pro version *) and couldn't be happier.

I was nowhere near being as good a this with it, though. World Class OP1-ing.



* if I write it as you'd normally write it it changes it to iPad Pro, ffs!


Hmmm... must be a bug in the site. ;)
Hi Jeff, welcome to the site! I've given you developer flair so that your comments will stand out.

We would love to add in some kind of sample import --- just want to do it in such a way that it's actually useful rather than just a tick box. Any particularily good implementations out there ? Dropbox seems like a good idea.

Hi, weepy! Sign up for an account and I'll set you up with developer flair so your comments stand out.

As for sample import, I believe I can speak for everyone with a heartfelt request of AudioShare! Nearly everyone in iOS music making uses AudioShare to manage their samples and recordings across all apps. It makes the whole business of sample management simple and intuitive. It is even easier than using Jailbroken tools that used to be necessary, like iFile file-browser.
Ohhh! I'd heard of that, but hadn't seen the video yet. That's going to take a lot of computation and battery power to pull off, but the potential is truly awesome!

The 0-Coast is crazy fun. Bought one last month. Scratches my modular itch nicely so far. Just hope I don't fall down the same rabbit hole as everyone else...

LOL, how do you feel about your chances of accomplishing that feat?
Nice! Times and specifics are listed in the video description.
Behringer was showing some super-experimental stuff at NAMM with a Hololens and Leap Motion Controller rigged to their DeepMind synth. It looks promising!

@stub: If you can read this, question marks are now allowed in forum titles!

Let me know if you notice any other weirdness. The forums are the least tested part of the new site.

Toz Bourne suggested that a topic for the forum would be a clear explanation on how the iTunes links work here. This is a good suggestion, because I've often received emails from people who want to support the site, but aren't sure how the iTunes links actually do their thing. I've probably gotten over a hundred emails like:
"New app XXXXXX is out! Can you put up a link to it, so that you get the affiliate credit?"
I'm extremely grateful to hear people have that kind of thought for me. Even when my finances weren't struggling, I super appreciated the idea that someone would delay their purchase; to wait until they could share the revenue with me. Fortunately you don't have to wait!

By clicking any of the iTunes links here, from the device you're going to purchase on the App Store, you're setting a little identifier on iTunes.

Here is an example, this link goes to Animoog:
https://itunes.apple.com/app/id471638724?mt=8&uo;;=8&at;=11l4Kv
The &at;= signifies that my affiliate code is 11l4Kv. This code is automatically added to all links that go to iTunes from here.For the next few hours, any purchases you make will be credited to the last affiliate identifier you clicked on.

The exact way that this works has changed a few times in the past, and I'm not 100% sure how they're handling it now, but the rule of thumb is: Just click on any of my links and when that takes you to iTunes, search for the new app you want.

This also works on other things besides apps. For the next few hours if you purchase songs, TV shows, or anything else on iTunes... I'll get a cut! And my cut does not take any money from you, or the developer. My commission comes out of the 30% that Apple already takes from publishers. I'm not allowed to say how much the percentage I get is, but it's more than 5% and less than 10%.

So thank you very much to everyone that makes it a point of supporting the site by using my links! It all adds up, and is a big help to my overall income.

There is one exception to all of this though, and that's advertisers. Advertisers often have their own affiliate codes, and campaign codes, in their links. If you click on the Howl ad for instance you'll get to this link:
https://itunes.apple.com/app/apple-store/id1067562312?pt=561151&ct;;=Discchord&mt;=8
This lets developers track which ad campaigns are driving sales. Since advertiser revenue is still my primary source of income, please use ads to purchase apps you want instead of my links; so that they know their ads are working!
I resisted it for years, partly because I didn't want to moderate one, and mostly because I assumed no one was going to use it. Prove me wrong!
