Despite JamStik's deplorable choice of PR company, and what is clearly a cynical abuse of crowd-funding for purely marketing purposes, they are offering a really nice deal on their Indiegogo page! For $175 you get a JamStik, which has an MSRP of $300!
MATRIXSYNTH found this amazing video from Uncertain Music Corps, combining an inspiring bit of generative music from Noatikl 2 and an aspiring amount of gear lust. The little iPhone is nearly lost in the scene of modular synth wonder, but it is the heart and soul of this piece. Everything you hear is being generated by a beta version Noatikl 2, which is presently only available on Mac!
Both versions of Auria received an update that adds a new IAP plug-in from FXpansion, along with usability tweaks.
What's new in 1.08:
- New optional plug-in available:
FXpansion DCAM EnvShaper
- Mute region function
- Lock locators and lock markers options added to transport menu
- Join function
- Dedicated loop handle added to each region, allowing automatic duplicates while preserving length and offset
- Split All function
- Various bug fixes: see our forum for more info
The FXpansion DCAM EnvShaper is based on their Propellerhead Reason Rack Extension.
There is no demo video for the Auria version, so hopefully this Reason video gives you an idea of what it can be used for.
I've lost track, but I think this is Rheyne's 4th video this week!
Live looping with analog keyboards, USB controllers, iOS devices, and Ableton Live. All loops were recorded live, nothing was pre-recorded.

MusicApps.com.br editor Marcus Padrini is the first to give us a demonstration of the audio input capabilities of iMini. Fortunately he even has an Arturia MiniBrute for the task! Here he's running both MIDI and audio from the MiniBrute into iMini.
This is also a great opportunity to hear spoken Portugese, but you can skip ahead 3 minutes in to hear what the synths sound like!
