Audio Filter Updated with JACK

Audio Filter is the first third-party app to include support for JACK Audio Connection Kit! This freemium Universal app allows you to play music from your iTunes library and apply elaborate filtering. Or at least in theory. I didn't have any noticeable results with the CMP Piano app connected via JACK, but that might be because I did not purchase the $3 IAP to "Upgrade". The volume slider works, so it is getting audio from JACK. However, even radical shifts in the filtered frequencies had no impact on CMP Piano.

Honestly this is a pretty terrible app. Some basic UI elements are just completely omitted. For instance if you go into the Filters section, but want to bounce back out to the main menu, there was no way to do that! This update adds a gesture you have to use in order to get back out, which you wouldn't even know about unless you read the update notes. Dragging around on the on-screen frequencies has frustratingly obtuse results. I spent about 20 minutes with it and lost my mind before I could figure it out.

Correction: I screwed up the JACK connections in my test this morning, so I was hearing both the dry and wet signals.

What's new in 2.0.10:

  • Rework of GUI and navigation so app can display views in both Portrait and Landscape modes
  • Use LONG PRESS Gesture to return to main screen
  • Bluetooth support discontinued due to playback issues
  • Add ability to import and play mp3 files from other apps or through iTunes sharing
  • Add support for combining with other audio apps through Jack IOS connection kit app
  • Display Artwork for mp3 files
  • Extra mp3 gain option

Nashville Local News Reviews IK Multimedia

A Nashville local station, WZTV FOX 17, had a show called Rock & Review, with a segment dedicated to IK Multimedia's iOS gear. This will not be news to anyone reading this site, but I thought it was promising to see a local channel take an interest in reporting on music apps. Local stations are susceptible to prefabricated news stories produced by companies, but I did a little digging and this looks like they genuinely put this together themselves. There are other segments from the show on their YouTube channel.

Speaking of lazy journalism... SampleTank is also on sale, so I can kill two birds with one stone on this post!

Hellcore - Video Jam #1

Hellcore has started a live jam series, with an intense ambient journey into apps and gear. I'm seriously digging this!

Video Description:

First attempt at a video jam, pretty simple with no real pre-planning and it shows but still happy I managed to get this done. Plenty of mistakes, not least screwing my QuNeo setup just before I started, so carried on without. Oh and the audio is a little out of sync too!
