JamUp Update adds Griffin Stompbox, on sale 50% off!

Good news for guitarists! One of the most popular Universal amp/effects apps has added support for the Griffin Stompbox footswitch controller. That looks like a seriously nice deal; a full controller for about what you'd pay for a single hardware pedal. The update also adds a whole bunch of other new features:

  • Tone sharing to share and download artist and user presets
  • Griffin Technology StompBox support
  • 64 slot preset manager
  • New added Octave and Cry Wah effect
  • New bass expansion package
  • New boutique expansion package
  • Ultra low latency, 50% improvement
  • Phrase Sampler added undo support
  • Continuous speed adjust in iTunes JAM player

They've also put the app on sale, at 50% off, so you can save $10 to spend on some In-App Purchases.

Here's a product demo from Griffin for the Stompbox. I'm really tempted to get the pair to run synths through the effects.

Animoog update adds Restore Purchases!

I know a lot of people have been waiting for this one! Gatearray was the first to let me know about it. Finally you can restore any past purchases on both versions of Animoog, including B.A.S.E.!

Unfortunately you cannot restore purchases between the apps. So if you bought a pack on Animoog for iPad it will not be restored on the iPhone version. Naturally, that was the first thing I tried. Let's hope this is the next step from Moog!

Vice Vega - Call Me Maybe (iPad-only Cover)

After the 30 second intro, this iPad-only cover of Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe sounds amazing. These guys got some very professional results using just Garageband for iPad! Check out Vice Vega on YouTube for more pop covers.

More scientific breakthroughs in USB Power

Maria Calfa-DePaul has been responding to comments in the original post about powering a USB keyboard with the Duracell Powerhouse.

The main question on everyone's mind has been, "How long will this thing actually last?" The answer seems to be quite a while... or at least longer than a fully charged iPhone will!

Okay this now has exceeded my expectations. I used the charger for 1 and a half hours the first time. Then tonight without recharging it I used it for 3 hours straight and guess what? it's still 3/4 charged. The green light is only slightly diminished!! and my iphone died!! (and it was fully charged when I began!) so...keep posted folks cause this is SWEET!!

We're probably looking at 10-12 hours of use on a single charge! Not bad!

As a bonus, all this tinkering lead Maria to producing a new track using Animoog and NanoStudio.

Koushion updated, name is still hard to type

Koushion is a dedicated MIDI step-sequencer. It looks really cool, even though it lacks Virtual MIDI support. There are a lot of people that feel any synth is improved by the addition of a step-sequencer, so this is a nice way to make that happen!

I tried to review it, but I ran into a couple of show-stopping problems. The first being that I can't use my M-Audio UNO (USB-MIDI adapter) due to the way the Uno is sending clock sync. Bummer. I tried to run a WIFI connection to my computer, but there was some major bug going on with their Windows Koushion MIDI controller software (required proprietary software, it doesn't use rtpMIDI like most apps). The app would be running fine on its own, but as soon as I got a connection to my Windows computer, the iPad app would crash! Every single time, over the course of nearly an hour of testing. It would send notes just fine for a bit, but if I pressed anything on the App screen (like octave shift) it would crap out instantly.

It has been updated, but it doesn't look like it addresses any of my problems.

  • Fixed bug with saving channel mappings
  • Quantization now takes effect immediately upon resuming stopped playback rather than waiting until the end of a complete sequence

Buy Koushion on iTunes: $9.99

I am assured, by Kudzu Creative Group, that my experience is just a fluke. No one else has reported these crashes, so maybe it is a new bug with iPad 3s.

Here is video evidence from Chris Stack that it does work, and it is kind of awesome when it does!
