Hey Just J - Price Tag / Where is the Love (Loopy Mash-up)

Hey Just J brings us a new Loopy jam, this time doing an acoustic guitar mash-up of Price Tag with Where is the Love.

He's has dramatically improved his production quality since we saw him in January. He looks better without the hipster glasses.

Video Description:

I was playing around with my guitar and an app I use on my phone called Loopy and figured out that I could do a mashup of two pretty cool songs. I came up with the arrangement on my phone and control everything in Loopy with an FCB1010 MIDI foot pedal controller. The video was shot in my garage using a Canon 60D with the kit lens and I had one LED panel light (CN-600SA).

I do everything from graphic design to video production, but I also blog about cool things I'm doing and other techy and creative things.

Interview: Smite Matter

iOS Musician's Sean Walker interviewed David A Israel; one of the first musicians to release an album composed entirely on iOS, and blogger at SmiteMatter.com where he does lots of app reviews.

The interview is primarily David's use of Auria in his workflow.

Auria is powerful and pushes device resources to their limits especially when using its plug ins and FX, making it difficult to use on iPad 2. I don’t know if it can be made any more efficient or not? It’s easy to avoid problems. Limiting the number of simultaneous Audiobus inputs, and taking advantage of track freeze is key to avoiding low memory, low CPU warnings and crashes. The only times I ever run into those issues are when I forget to close a background app, try to run too many inputs, or fail to freeze tracks with plug ins assigned. Wave Machine Labs is really showing (as seen in recent updates) that they’re listening to users and making solid improvements; like the touch/drag duplicate region bypassing the need for a drop down, and touch controlled TimeStretch.

That is all really good advice for anyone who is trying to use Auria. In the desktop world people are used to freezing tracks to preserve CPU. On iOS we tend to just expect anything we try to do, to work! That isn't always a reasonable expectation.
