thesoundtestroom released 2 videos this weekend exploring Audulus. The one here starts off with some spectacular sounding jamming in Audulus with iFretless. There is also a tutorial on importing user patches, available for free on the Audulus forums.
Dyslexia Software MIDI MIND, whose full name literally means "MIDI MIDI Interactive Note Device," has been updated with lots of new features including Virtual MIDI In and Out.
What's new in MIDI MIND v1.10:
- MIDI IN & OUT are separately selectable
- Multiple MIDI OUT(s) can be selected
- Virtual MIDI IN & OUT available
- Keyboard function extended
- More Octaves available in Keyboard output
- Harmonies shown on Keyboard output page
Apps4iDevices just released this video of the app, demonstrating how it can take a single note and turn it into a complex harmony.
Chip Boaz from iOS Music and You interviewed White Noise Audio's David Wallin. David was one of the early music app developers, first releasing bleep!BOX back in 2009. He's been through the whole growth of music apps, and helped popularize Virtual MIDI with his excellent Genome MIDI Sequencer.
I've also embedded the interview here. It starts at 28 minutes, but at 25 minutes in there is a little tune from Chip that makes use of the White Noise Audio apps!
Originally announced in January of last year, and expected to have shipped in the second quarter of 2012, the Peavey AmpKit LiNK HD fell off the radar for a while. A new video just popped up on the Peavey YouTube channel!
This interface looks great, offering a digital connection to your apps through the 30-pin connector instead of the bleed-prone headphone jack solutions. At $100 it comes in at the same price as IK Multimedia's iRig HD, but offers substantially more I/O allowing for headphone and line-out from the box as well.
Additionally, it will even charge your iPad/iPhone/iTouch when connected to the optional AC adapter! That is a great advantage for AmpKit LiNK HD over similar USB interfaces.
This is quite a boon for people who want to record both to and from the iPad on a budget. Seriously, after a lot of recording from that noisy headphone jack I am desperate for anything else! If they can ever get this thing released it might be worth serious consideration as a low-cost high-quality interface.
Update: Ampkit just tweeted me that it is shipping now!
XME, makers of lots of dubious apps, have updated BeatPad to include Audiobus... as an entirely separate app. Owners of the original BeatPad will need to cough up another $5. To their credit they offer a lot of sample kits and don't charge extra IAPs for them.
BeatPad - Trance iTunes Description:
- Audiobus Support: Allows you to send audio from this app to other audiobus supported apps for effects and realtime recording.
- Beautiful & Easy-To-Use Interface
- Sequence with Dozens of SoundKits, high quality Reverb & Delay effects for each track.
- Export Your Songs as mp3s, project files to collaborate with friends, upload to YouTube and Facebook & open into other apps.
- Edit each individual note in the "Sequencer"
- Tap the tempo of your choice for each song
- Copy/Paste Note Recordings from one track to another
- Quantize settings place your recorded notes on beat/in sync automatically.
Here is a perfunctory, and almost laughably terrible, demo of the Audiobus support.
