The Soundtest Room has posted a detailed review video for Wolfgang Palm's latest app, PPG Wavemapper!
I'm not sure what's going on here.
ONYX App's Spectrum Analyzer is usually $15. It was on sale last week for $10. The price came back up to $15 on Friday and now the price is down to $0.99. The app has never been that cheap before!
I wonder if this is an incident of price bouncing; a practice used to artificially keep an app relevant by frequently changing the price. Perhaps something went awry and they missed a digit when trying to set it to $9.99!
Here is a demo video from the developer.
MATRIXSYNTH found an interesting video featuring Korg's iMS-20 playing Daft Punk's Derezzed, which is then run through the real MS-20's external signal processor! This is used to generate a CV signal so that the iMS-20's notes are played on the MS-20. The Korg train continues into a KaossPad Mini and the whole thing is accompanied by a Korg Electribe MX playing drums.
You'll find lots more MS-20 videos on atoooy's YouTube channel.
Takashi Mizuhiki has updated his long running DXi FM Synthesizer with support for Audiobus!
DXi was first released way back in May of 2010. Incredibly in all of that time no one has attempted to dethrone DXi as the defacto FM synth for iOS. It is easy to say this is my favorite FM synth for iPad, because there are no alternatives, but it is also my favorite way to play with FM synthesis on any platform!
Development has continued to bring new features to keep DXi relevant in the ever changing iOS Music App space. Last October's update included both Background Audio and Virtual MIDI ports, and now we get to play with Audiobus too!
Peavey were at NAMM showing off their new AT-200 guitar. This is a wildly impressive, and equally complicated, guitar that auto-tunes from the inside-out. The results are exceptional, and far better than you'd get with auto-tuner effects, used later in the chain with pedals.
While some of the auto-tune controls are available on the guitar itself, through switches and knobs, to really explore the added functionality requires a MIDI interface of some kind. Peavey opted to make their own with MIDI Designer for iPad. MIDI Designer let them expose all of the features and was used in NAMM demos.
The guys at Peavey were so pleased with it that they did a private demo for the MIDI Designer design team.
