KissBox has released the MIDI2TR, a WiFi-MIDI tranceiver for the low-low price of $800! It is on sale at SIRS-E for just $673.

It works over RTP-MIDI, which is same way that the iPad's CoreMIDI does WiFi-MIDI. Here's a tutorial on how to connect your iPad.

April's Fools

My great plans to switch up the site have backfired! Instead of growing to new audiences, I seem to have lost some segments of my old audience. In the last 24 hours, 3 people unLiked the discchord Facebook page, and 5 people unCircled me on Google Plus.
For comparison, there are only 6 people on Google Plus in total. I guess it's back to the apps...

Goddamn, there is a pile of apps that had major updates or entirely new releases over the weekend. Here is that list of fools!

New Audiobus Additions:

Both of S4's free apps that have long supported AudioCopy/Paste are now Audiobus compatible.

  • S4 Rhythm Composer: Added the ability Audiobus(INPUT).
  • S4 Industrial Composer: Added the ability Audiobus(INPUT).

Also new to Audiobus is WOPR, Noisepad, FL Studio, and AmpKit!

What's new in WOPR 1.3.0:

It's here! Audiobus, recording, AudioCopy and a looper. Use WOPR with any Audiobus Effect or Output slot apps! You can also record directly within WOPR and build up layered compositions. You can take your riffs and use them in Sonoma MAPI-compatible apps, too, if you prefer. Grab pristine, noise-free recordings using iTunes file sharing and load them into your main computer DAW. Use the loop playback feature to layer recordings on top of each other, building up giant sounds for sampling or simply to lay down a bass line, chords and lead in three passes.

Double-tap "Rec" to start recording immediately, or tap it once to record as soon as you press the first key. Double tap your recordings in the Files window to give them a name and save them. Press "Play" once to play the recording, or press it twice to have it loop.

Loopy got a really cool update that adds reverse and decay to your loops! I've been playing with both quite a lot. The decay works when you're in recording overdub mode, so you can record something into a track, and it gets quieter as you continue to play over it. It is a really inspiring new tool. I was having a lot of fun with decaying arpeggiator recordings! If you have Loopy you seriously should check it out.

What's new in Loopy (Both versions):

  • In response to your feedback on Facebook, Loopy 2.5 brings two exciting new features: Reverse, and decay.
  • Other changes include some track recording workflow improvements, the addition of a number of new MIDI/Bluetooth actions, and assorted fixes.

New Apps:

Bismark, makers of bs-16i, have released a baffling new app called bismark LeftHanded, with all of the controls and even the keys transposed from left-to-right! This makes my brain hurt so hard. As a Lefty I'm already used to thinking of everything in a kind of simultaneous backwards-and-forwards way, so that I understand how the vast majority of the world is trying to interact. I mean everything! It is just ingrained at this point. This however, causes my brain to transpose everything backwards and forwards one too many times!

iTunes Description:

Please see this app's keyboard in screen shots. Left and right are reversed! It may be better suited to left-handed. Also, it might be a new discovery for right-handed people.

It includes same synthesizer engine as bs-16i (single part only). It supports all standard MIDI messages, using pre-installed GeneralUser GS SoftSynth v1.44.sf2 (S. Christian Collins), you can play various instruments.

Moreover, this application supports Core MIDI output, so your play can be sent to other apps, and external MIDI hardware using Core MIDI compatible Interface like as IK Multimedia iRig MIDI, iRig KEYS, YAMAHA iMX-1, LINE6 MIDI Mobilizer 2, Apple Camera Connection Kit with USB MIDI Interface.

Chordec is a free chord recognition app for iPhone! I'm including a highly detailed demo video from the developer below.

Chordec does chord recognition for songs from your iOS device. Its algorithm has the highest accuracy among published algorithms till at least the end of 2012.

Chord recognition accuracy under default "chordec sensitivity":
• 80% if counting only major and minor chords,
• 65% if counting only maj, min, aug, dim, 7, maj7 and min7

Load a song from your iOS device, and chordec solves the chord for you. You can then learn the chord using the speed-variable playback. Can't figure out how to rewind or fast forward? Move the cursor or scroll/zoom the tape to navigate to anywhere in the song.

Twilight Sparkle vs Benny Benassi: Satisfaction

Benny Benassi should have had Rabies Bun direct the Satisfaction video!

MLP: Harlem Shake!

YouTuber BronyVids has answered my prayers with his excellent video editing skills in this Harlem Shake video!
