Tech4Singers has been putting together a bunch of iPad tutorials for apps of interest to Opera and Choral singers. So far there are a couple of videos for SongBook and a whole bunch for forScore. I realize not all of you are going to be into singing Operas, but the video quality is great and you get to listen to her beautiful Operatic voice.
NodeBeat is not only an excellent ambient music generator, it is also an excellent ambient MIDI generator. It even supports Virtual MIDI. This is a great app at it's usual price, and even better free!
Here is a demo of it in action from Rheyne.
Details from the video:
NodeBeat's generators are sending MIDI notes to a DSI MoPho, two separate instances of NI's Massive (one polyphonic and one monophonic) and NI's Kontakt. Filters, delays, and reverb in Ableton Live are controlled by Lemur on a 2nd iPad, and Moog's Animoog is running on a third iPad. iKaossilator is running on an iPhone 4, providing some chord stabs. NodeBeat's tempo is set to 60bpm, and iKaossilator is set to 120bpm. Ableton's tempo is also set to 120bpm to keep the delays in sync. Nothing was pre-sequenced or pre-recorded for this jam.
TC-11 developer Kevin Schlei had a concert over the weekend, exploring electronic music with the tabla. Tabla player Hindole Majumdar is excellent in this improvisational jam, with Kevin rocking 3 instances of TC-11.
Thank you very much to MATRIXSYNTH for finding this!
As the name suggests, this latest tutorial from Yonac is mostly just the basics. Though it does show how to use MIDI to do selective synth coupling of the two synth engines, like I did in the review. They even include a look at iRig MIDI, in addition to USB-MIDI.
