Yamaha NoteStar Overview

Yamaha posted an overview video for their NoteStar app, which combines sheet music with audio tracks for practicing popular songs. This is mainly focused on the changes introduced in the 2.0 update a couple of weeks ago, but it is a good overview of the app in general... even if it is super-cheesy and done in the style of a NAMM presentation.

NoteStar is free, but songs range from $0.99, and up to $3.99 for complete band and vocal track.

Buy NoteStar on iTunes: Free

PPG Wavegenerator Preview Video

Wolfgang continues to taunt us! This teaser is juicy though. Hit the 720p switch on the embed and pause it frame by frame.

Rampant speculation follows:

  • 0:01 - 3D visualization, but underneath it is some zig-zagging path on a grid.
  • 0:02 - We see the grid and a user customizing the path.
  • 0:03 - Audio 1 and Audio 2 labels in the top right; two different audio paths?
  • 0:04 - A pop-out shows the value of a control to the side, so you can see it under your finger.
  • 0:05 - The label "Draw" is above both panels on the left showing the same wave. The bottom is in partials; like additive synths.
  • 0:06 - Holy shit! Is each square on the grid a different wave? This is like Draw Your Own Animoog!
  • 0:07 - A lot of presets, made managable in banks.
  • 0:08 - DUDE! The path/grid screen definitely has a cursor similar to Animoog.
  • 0:09 - Recording and playback pop-up. 
  • 0:10 - Demonic Possession.
  • 0:11 - Envelope G1. We saw an Envelope W1 in the preview screenshot. Labeling like this indicates a lot of envelopes.
  • 0:12 - Making a path on the grid. 

Wow! The inventor of wavetable synthesis is really coming to iPad!

Genome and bleep!BOX are both on sale!

bleep!BOX is turning 3 today, and Genome MIDI Sequencer will be 1 next week! White Noise Audio has slashed the prices on both to celebrate! This is an excellent opportunity to get into Virtual MIDI. You can get both for $1 less than the retail price of Genome! Even if you don't use bleep!BOX as its intended acid factory, it is a highly customizable Virtual MIDI drum synth. Pair the two of these with just about any synth (link to tutorial on setting up several synths) and you've got the makings of an iPad studio.

Buy bleep!BOX on iTunes: $4.99 (On Sale, from $9.99)

Buy Genome on iTunes: $6.99 (On sale, from $12.99)


You've all heard me gushing over both a dozen times over, so I'll hold off on my own video pimping.

To celebrate bleep!BOX's birthday, here is the original introduction by developer David Wallin, back in July 2009.

Koushion Update

Koushion MIDI Step Sequencer had some new ease of use features added today.

What's new:

• Scene manipulation controls: copy, move, and swap scenes!
• Gate rotary knob: adjust the length of each note from 0 to 200%
• Improved internal MIDI clock accuracy

Buy Koushion on iTunes: $7.99



There are surprisingly few user videos for this, I thought everyone loved step sequencers? Here is the original demo video.

DrumJam vs Drummer

Sonosaurus have announced that DrumJam will be submitted for approval to Apple this week! Here is a little teaser titled, "One finger vs 4 limbs!" in which co-developer Pete Lockette battles it out with his one finger playing DrumJam, against a full drum kit.

Palm Sounds discovered an introductory video posted last month by Pete Lockett. The video quality is pretty bad (max resolution is 360) and the sound quality is worse, but this is 26 minutes of great details.
