Wolfgang Palm has released a free version of PPG WaveGenerator! The key difference between the free and $20 versions is you don't get to play with the synthesis bits in the free version, but you can play with all of the presets to hear how this synth sounds.
"The strength of the PPG app is the sound, this can only be experienced when hearing it. Sometimes apps are not suited to the person buying them and we thought having to buy an app to find this out was not good. This allows everyone to try before they buy."
PPG FREE is a feature-limited version of the PPG WaveGenerator App. All editing functions are disabled, voice count is 5 maximum with a sample rate of 44.1Khz, but the user still has access to a selection of the incredible library from the full version. To benefit from the full power of the PPG synth engine users will need to purchase the PPG WaveGenerator App from the App Store.
German electronica pioneers Mouse On Mars have their own audio effects app, WretchUp. Presently it only works in rjdj on one iPhone, but they want to turn what they've learned into a standalone, open-source, app. In order to do that, they are soliciting donations on indiegogo. I don't like to post stuff for indiegogo and Kickstarter, because there is zero accountability and well meaning people are getting burned. This project however, is promising nothing, so you are sure to get what you pay for!
Despite my grievances with Reactable, this is pretty damn cool. Reactable Huntermann is an interactive album powered by Reactable, allowing you to reshape Oliver Huntemann's Paranoia album as you like. I'm seriously blown away by how fun this looks!
With the Reactable Artist Edition you can play and remix in real time along with Oliver Huntemann's performance or just listen and enjoy the tracks of one of the best electronic music producer touring today.
This special release converts the top-of the charts recordings of Paranoia into an interactive album. Get access to original samples, transform and combine them, add loops, effects and more, creating unique Oliver-and-you tracks, or simply just watch and listen to the tracks performed on Reactable mobile.
