Arturia iMini - Minimoog for iPad!

Arturia have released their first iPad app! iMini is their recreation of the Minimoog, and a great start for Arturia on a new platform.

iTunes Description:

iMini is a recreation of the classic 1971 Minimoog™ synthesizer, one of most iconic synthesizers of all time.

Based on the TAE® technology found in our award winning Mini V software, iMini offers a level of sound quality never before found on the iPAD as well as over 500 sounds by leading sound designers.

We have also partnered with the Bob Moog Foundation so that a portion of each sale goes to support their work in music education via the Dr. Bob Sound school program, making available the archives of Dr. Bob Moog and funding the dream to build the Moogseum.

Buy iMini on iTunes: $9.99


The iTunes description is actually super long, so this is the abridged version. Highlights include CoreMIDI support, but there is no support for iPad 1s. It is also Tabletop-Ready! Once you install it you can essentially use the same app from inside of Tabletop. This is a neat idea, but Tabletop is going to bloat like mad if they keep this up. Presently my Tabletop directory is 850MB, which isn't terrible, but still big on a 16GB iPad!

Here is a tutorial video from the official website.

Here's a recent down-tempo jam from iterabyte that explores many of the instruments and effects in Tabletop.

How to Get Free Phrases in Yamaha Music Sequencer

Ordinarily I wouldn't post details on how to circumvent IAPs, but this is both so obvious and tedious that I think it is safe to share.

YouTuber BEAT 'n' VISION figured out that you can save phrases from the demos, for use in your own songs! The process looks quite laborious though, so I think Yamaha's profits are safe. Unless you are seriously hard-up for cash, you ought to just buy the IAPs. Also the price on the app itself will be going up at the end of the month, so legitimate deal hunters take note!

Bucephalus

Bucephalus is a deceptively priced Universal iOS app that uses the physics of elasticity and gravity to generate notes.

iTunes Description:

Create unique sounds with this instrument utilising the power of elastic spheres! Five ball sizes have unique collision sounds and individual resonant tones for each wall of the screen.

Advanced features:

  • Custom designed three stage, four parameter chamber reverb
  • Two parameter custom distortion
  • Three filter types with adjustable Q and cutoff frequency
  • Save states
  • Variable elasticity, gravity and resonance
  • User defined resonance settings with Major7, Minor7, Dominant7, Semitone, Wholetone and Pentatonic arpeggios and variable detuning for microtonal effects

Buy Bucephalus on iTunes: Free (Really $4.99)


It is free but, as the only iTunes review notes, doing anything in the app will cause it to pop-up with a $5 In-App Purchase. Seriously, the first thing I tapped resulted in the pop-up in the screenshot here.

There is a lengthy demo video available from the developer, but the volume becomes painfully loud at parts.
