Tabletop now supports AudioCopy

Retronym's has updated Tabletop with some cool new features.

• CloudSeeder - access the Tabletop Community
• Audio Copy - collaborate with other Apps!
• Module Bundles - great discounts!

I haven't bothered to reinstall this, so I'm not sure how great those discounts are... their iTunes page indicates that basic instruments still run between $6-$10.

SoundCloud CloudSeeder support is nice, and AudioCopy is always a welcomed addition, but all of my previous criticisms remain. It really needs some kind of sequencer/piano-roll for the non-step-sequenced instruments and CoreMIDI. To be fair, a lot of people seem to enjoy this app, You can certainly make some music without buying the In-App Purchases, and it is a very pretty app.


Tabletop is still free, so at least you don't have to pay $15 to find out you need to pay another $45 for most of the functionality... as all of their early customers had to find out the hard-way.

Update: Telengard checked out the bundle deals and posted about it in the comments section here. It seems like you can unlock everything for $25, but it will lower that price if you have already purchased instruments. Make sure you have "restored purchases" on the iPad you're trying to do this from though, in order for the corrected price to display.

Genome Sequencer MASSIVE MIDI Jam!

The always impressive Jim McLaren has posted a great example of using Genome with multiple devices and even a hardware synth. He does a great job of explaining how he's got it all connected and routed, and then goes on to put it to good use!

For anyone who hasn't seen it yet, here is my Genome Tutorial video to help you get started!

PixiTracker Video Demo

VJFranzK posted a nice little demo of PixiTracker, from the developer of SunVox. Unlike SunVox and similar tracker-style apps, this looks fun and friendly! Partly for the bright colors, but the simple pattern arrangement and flipping between patterns looks nice too.

Akai SynthStation49 Video Introduction

Akai has put out an set of videos that introduce the SynthStation 49, along with the upgraded iPad version of the SynthStation app. I'm embedding their playlist, which starts with the 40 second teaser they posted in January. Just click the Next button (next to play), because the rest is 17 minutes of new details!

I'm undecided on whether I'm going to go with this now that I have a SynthStation61.

APG Composer + Me Jamming like a Fiend

I'm pretty nerdy. I set as a threshold for the site anything I deem too nerdy for me, as being too nerdy in general. APG Composer very nearly was dismissed as such. This 3 Voice FM Synth is very nerdy, but it is free so I poked around with it for a bit on your behalf. I wouldn't recommend this to everyone, but it is definitely worth checking out if you like to seriously geek out with some knobs and synthesis.

There's no Audio Copy here, hell there isn't even exporting, nor MIDI, nor any of the usual stuff we expect, but it is kind of awesome at what it does.

This is really just a tech demo for the company's Audio Plugin Generator, software for designing VSTs, but that is also interesting as they were able to port it to iOS without any code changes. We could be seeing the Reaktor of iOS that many synth nerds have been dreaming of.

Here's a track I put together in the first 20 minutes of playing with it. I like the results! Just slap some drums on this and it's a solid track.

Thanks to iDesignSound for bringing this to my attention!
