I love this video MatrixSynth found! A journey through a room full of synths. All 4 walls are covered in geary goodness. Yet the music you're hearing is using none of that! It is 2 iPads running NLogSynth Pro, with help from Phaedra sequencer.
It was a year ago today that I started Everyone Can Play Music, making this is ECPM's 1st Birthday! Thank you very much to everyone that has sent me emails of encouragement and letting me know how much the series means to you. The response to this series has been amazing. Each video has 5x more views than I had even hoped!
I'd also like to thank Palm Sounds, MatrixSynth, iOS Musician, and the communities of Reddit. When I was just starting out with a crappy Rockband mic and a dream, these sites all helped me reach you guys!
This lesson is an introduction to synthesizing Lead parts; making a Super Saw out of just 2 Oscillators!
Sunsine Audio are offering a new bundle with Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 of their Sunrizer Presets, Sinerise. This is ordinarily $6.50, but they are also doing a Friday The 13th sale on all of their products! Everything is 20% off, now through Sunday.
Fingerlab, makers of DM1 Drum Machine, have a "complete music studio" app for the iPad called Rockmate. It hasn't gotten a lot of attention, but this new patch might change that! Both MIDI In and sample import, via Audio Paste, have been added. Rockmate already supported Audio Copy, so now you have full in and out options for your sounds.
Here's the official trailer.
Secret Base Design just released VoxKit! This Universal app is a MIDI Drum controller than you can trigger with sounds you make in the real world. Different sounds can trigger different drums! You can then send the MIDI out via CoreMIDI, or even DSMIDI WiFi. If sending MIDI all over the place isn't your thing, VoxKit has its own sample playback engine that supports Audio Copy/Paste.
Some people have been comparing this to the best part of the Wavedrum Mini, at 1/250th the price! They are also doing a sale on their other apps, Audio MIDI Connect and Live Guitar are both just $2!
