You may have noticed a huge gap in the stories posted today, and that is because a copy of Djay 2 landed in my inbox!

I immediately hooked it up in Audiobus with Echo Pad and lost track of time. The original Djay was so popular because of how easy it made the process of DJing, albiet in a simplified and dumbed-down sort of way. Everyone could have fun playing around with it. Djay 2's Perfect Sync™ continues this tradition by being far more than a goofy, and ponderously trademarked, buzz word. It really is effortless to sync up tracks so you feel like a badass when you're riding the crossfader.

Today I had such a solid bit going in Djay 2, while flailing my arms around in Echo Pad, that I cracked my elbow and funny bone! No shit, that was really weird! I plan on blowing huge chunks of the day exploring all the possible Audiobus connections available here. You could pair it with KoalaSan and start streaming out your DJ sets on Shoutcast!

Anckorage Spring

A bizarre looking, but feature packed and free, physical modelling synth just arrived on the App Store! Anckorage Spring is Universal and comes with Audiobus and MIDI, but without any audio or video demos. There is a PDF manual on the official site though.

Anckorage Spring

Anckorage Spring is a physical modelling audio synthesiser based on the simulation of a set of connected mass- spring, integrating non-linearities, fluid and static friction, mechanical limits, gravity and bouncing.

It is designed to be controlled by a continuous controller (like the Haken Continuum) but can be used with a regular keyboard or directly from the device screen or from other core midi apps. Of course a continuous controller will provide a much more accurate control of the model.

The mains ideas behind Anckorage Spring are:
• Being able to tweak real world parameter like Mass, Force, Gravity, etc. instead of tweaking usual electronic parameters,
• Not only try to mimic real world, but also allow very "unusual" things like modulating a Mass and changing the Gravity,
• Emphasis control and expression using the physical parameters,
• Open a new world of sound to experiment with....
• Have fun and enjoy playing music !

Features:

  • Real physical modelling sound engine
  • Fully editable physical model
  • 88 200 Hz internal sampling rate
  • Special Haken Continuum compliance
  • Playable by any midi device
  • Core midi base (therefore including virtual midi and network midi compliance)
  • On device touch control
  • Rich preset management
  • Preset exchange mechanism (through iTunes Share)
  • All parameters controllable by MIDI CC
  • Audiobus compliant
