  • Led Colors for Individual Controls, Panels and Labels: in a word, awesome!
  • Page Organizer in Design Mode
  • New slider/knob lift-off protection: sliders don't trigger values on finger off.

Vote for your favorite Scary Sound!

10 folks participated in the first Preset Design Contest! Which is honestly 7 more than I dared to hope for. In fact there were several people who included lots of presets, but to keep things simple I had to ask them to choose only one for the contest.

Here are the 10 presets for your consideration! Please vote by hitting the "Like" button in the top right of the player, when it is playing the one that you want to vote for. You can vote for as many of them as you like, but only the 3 with the most votes will win!

Update: Voting is now closed! Thank you very much to all participants and voters for making this first contest such a success!

Voting ends October 31st, whenever I wake up enough to tally the votes. I'll also post a Magellan preset bank full of the contest entries, plus some bonus patches, for everyone to download!

Audiobus is "Impossible", Also Releasing Soon!

Michael Tyson and Sebastian Dittmann have updated the Audiobus Tumblr with The State of the 'Bus!

The main theme of the article is how impossibly difficult it has been to actually make Audiobus, let alone make sure it works with so many different apps in numerous configurations.

Comparing SoundCloud's SDK to Audiobus' SDK

Every app that supports [SoundCloud's SDK] interacts with [just] the SoundCloud servers.

Audiobus on the other hand makes apps interact with each other. The amount of complexity added by this is enormous. That apps can be arranged in a variety of ways, and perform a variety of roles - inputs, effects and outputs - within the Audiobus connection graph complicates matters even further.

The last several weeks have been especially stressful for the team, as they await the schedules of third-party developers. The blog post goes into this a bit and the effect this has had on delaying the release.

The good news is it will be releasing soon, despite being a completely impossible task in the first place!

From postponing launch by a few months, to a few weeks, we’re now postponing it by days. Which means you, dear reader, are getting real close to holding Audiobus in your hands.

iOS Update Vol. 18 - BT-105 & GuitarToolkit

This week Mitch takes a look at AirTurn BT-105, a Bluetooth pedal designed for turning pages in sheet music. You can also use it in other ways, such as with apps that accept BT-as-MIDI assignments, like Loopy.
