Finger has released a Universal looper. It is free to try, and you can buy additional loops for $2 each, or for $8 you can unlock the "Full" version which allows you to import your own loops. There is no Audiobus or Inter-App Audio in this initial version, but IAA is a planned feature.

LP-5 iTunes Description:

LP-5 is a performance-geared loop player for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Built for live arranging and remixing, LP-5 allows you to trigger audio loops using an intuitive launch matrix, while automatic tempo synchronization keeps you in time with the beat.

LP-5 is the perfect companion for your live performances, DJ acts, or studio sessions. Thanks to its real-time audio time-stretching feature and an exceptional MIDI implementation, you can have LP-5 play along a drum machine or DAW, or have an external sequencer play along LP-5 - always in perfect sync.

AmpKit Updated

Peavey's AmpKit was update even more amps and pedals! Holy shit this is a long post...

What's new in AmpKit v1.8:

AmpKit 1.8 amplifies an already powerful gear library, bringing its total to 113 available amp channels, cabinets, pedals and mics. And with AmpKit, you can mix and match amps, cabinets and mics, and add up to 32 effects in a single setup, for virtually unlimited tone permutations. This release also features a total of 156 presets spanning the full range of genres and playing styles.

4 New Amps

• Colonel Jump 75: Modeled on the 1975 Marshall® Master Model JMP 2203 100w Lead, an amp that pioneered a new era in rock and roll. It was the first Marshall to include a master volume control, as well as a cascaded preamp that enabled great saturated tone at any volume. AmpKit's Jump 75 is a faithful reproduction, with amazingly sweet, smooth high-gain tone. This amp defines classic rock and roll.
• Talon Blues 5: Modeled on the Lab Series L5, one of the few solid-state amplifiers that guitarists love for its great tone. Includes a parametric midrange control, built-in compressor, and a unique multifilter which operates on six different frequency centers.
• Taos C+: Modeled on the Mesa® Mark IIC+, this amp has more tone-modifying switches than any other AmpKit amp. Wikipedia calls the Mark IIC+ "the most coveted vintage Boogie, selling for twice its original price on average, because of its much praised 'Liquid Lead' mode, and also, its warm, clean rhythm mode."
• Voltage VT Reissue: Modeled on the Ampeg® SVT®-VR, the classic "Blue Line" SVT bass head from the early 1970s. This flexible two-channel amp includes midrange EQing, as well as Ultra Hi and Ultra Low controls, and we added a master volume control so you can dial in the overdrive you want at any volume level. AmpKit's authentic reproduction delivers all the iconic bass tone you'd expect from this classic amp.

2 New Pedals

• Thrasher PRE: Modeled on the TC Electronic® Integrated Preamplifier, a discontinued and extremely hard-to-find clean boost and 2-band EQ that's a must-have when recreating 1990's thrash metal tone. Definitely the secret ingredient for amazing thrash metal fun.
• ToneMime Bass: Modeled on the Tech21® SansAmp® Bass Driver. It's like owning an entire roomful of bass amps: using this pedal alone (without amp or cabinet), you can easily dial in the tone of dozens of different amps! The ToneMime Bass pedal also works well as an overdrive pedal in conjunction with other AmpKit bass amp models.

Bass Essentials Bundle

Finally, an AmpKit bundle just for bass players! And what a selection of amps: two feature-packed modern bass amps from Trace Elliot and Ashdown, and three classic bass amps authentically modeled on classic Fender and Ampeg heads. We also include the ToneMime Bass pedal which is like owning a roomful of amps all by itself, and the Octapuss sub-octaver pedal. Includes: American Bass King, Ashdown ABM 900, Trace Elliot 1215, Voltage VT Classic, and Voltage VT Reissue amps with matched cabs; ToneMime Bass and Octapuss pedals

iA Trapped - Interactive Analysis of Dr. Boulanger's Trapped

With a name that sounds like it would be an overly-elaborate app for making remixes of the Harlem Shake and other Trap music, iA Trapped is actually an impressive new study aid! Dr. Richard Boulanger, of Boulanger Labs the makers of csGrain and the as yet unreleased csTouch, released Trapped in Convert back in 1979. This was an entire song written as a kind of computer program, long before the ubiquity of computers.

This piece has been a source of inspiration and research since, and now Sal Sofia brings it all together in an interactive iPad app.

iA Trapped iTunes Description:

The App, iA Trapped, stands for interactive analysis of Richard Boulanger's Trapped In Convert and is entitled Analysis and Ideologies of Richard Boulanger's Trapped In Convert by Sal Sofia. It is the most complete analysis available for Trapped to date, imparting an understanding of computer music through basic logic driven, step by step, insightful explanations written in Sal Sofia's personalized informative style.

Trapped In Convert by Richard Boulanger is one of the first classic computer music compositions written that grabs the imagination and speaks volumes to the listener through its colorful, dynamic, simple and complex soundscapes. For over 30 years Trapped has been played, studied and exemplified as the quintessential music synthesis composition known for the longevity and timelessness of Boulanger's orchestra, score and instrument opcodes (having first used Barry Vercoe's music11 in 1979 and then later in 1986, his Csound signal processing programs).

The App contains an interactive and detailed discussion complete with sound and navigational tools that facilitate comprehension through ear training, listening analysis and in-depth development of compositional skills used in computer music writing. It is interactive in that it allows the user the opportunity to hear what Sofia states about that particular section of the composition.

Interactive features include (among others):
• on the Macro level, the entire individual soundscape can be heard;
• on the Micro level the soundscape is defined, that is the individual sound objects that make up the soundscape is heard;
• on the reduction level each note that creates the sound object is heard.
And, all are viewed in their exact place in the timeline of the composition.

Additional features include:
• the techniques used to create the instrument opcodes;
• the particular instrument parameters, complete with macro and micro graphs and charts detailing their sound and purpose, individually and their contribution to the whole;
• their "layering" to create textures, depth and color, as well as;
• the thematic structure that occurs throughout the composition.
All written and illustrated in Sal Sofia's distinct informal didactic style.

You can listen to (what I believe to be) the original Trapped in Convert here, but I love this modern take embedded below.

Launchpad Updated with Audio Import - Kind Of

Today Novation released the 7th update for their Launchpad app, finally adding the ability to import your own audio and loops, via an In-App Purchase. Or at least that is what iTunes says. In reality the IAP is not available from within the app at this time. I contacted Novation to find out what's going on, but have not yet received a reply. It could just be that iTunes is taking a while to propagate the IAP out to all of the iTunes servers and it will show up later today or tomorrow.

Update: I heard back from Novation. iTunes is indeed to blame for the slow propigation, so you'll have to wait for it to show up. They are optimistic that it should be up "shortly." When it is available, the Audio Import IAP will be $6.99.

For many people this won't matter though, because even if you could buy the IAP it will only allow for importing via Dropbox. Still no sign of Audiobus, Inter App-Audio, or even AudioCopy.

What's new in Launchpad v1.2:

  • Audio import (via In-App Purchase) — Transform Launchpad app into a powerful performance solution to play your own original music (audio import via Dropbox)
  • Improved library manager — Browse categories, packs, and favourites
  • Improved edit modes — New trigger and sync types
  • Per pad volume edit
  • Graphics overhaul
  • Miscellaneous bugfixes and improvements
