Otamatone Studio by CUBE Co., Ltd.

CUBE Co., Ltd. released Otamatone Studio, an official app that greatly expands the possible sounds of this unique, if gimmicky, instrument. The app is free to try, but requires a $4 IAP unlock... which seems kind of shitty for an app that is only really useful to people who already paid for their hardware. Otamatone Studio can be used with the Techno and neo Otamatone models. In the U.S. it seems you need this Japanese version.

Otamatone Studio App Store Description:

Here comes Otamatone Studio, the official app for the note-shaped instrument Otamatone. Change your sound!

-About the app
Connect your Otamatone Techno or Otamatone neo to your iPhone or iPad, start Otamatone Studio and play your Otamatone with the sound of various instruments or jam along to built-in rhythms.

How to Hack Submix Groups into any AUv3 Host DAW

Developer Blue Mangoo Software shows off how their new Visual Mixer can be used to add submix groups to any iOS DAW that supports AUv3. This example demonstrates the process in Cubasis.

Video Description:

Visual Mixer is an audio unit plugin for iOS that allows you to control the pan and volume of all tracks in a mix in one place without scrolling. Until now it was only a more convenient user interface but it didn't do anything that iOS DAW apps don't already do (mute, solo, pan, volume), but with the addition of group controls, it allows you a functionality very similar to submix busses. It does this even in host apps that don't actually have submixes.

Synclavier Go! Update

Synclavier Go!, from Synclavier Digital Corporation Ltd, was updated with MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE)!

What's new in Synclavier Go! v1.21:

Go! now supports MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) for control surfaces such as the Roli Seaboard, LinnStrument, Continuum, and so on. And you can search timbres via hashtags.

Synclavier Digital brought keyboardist Leith-Fleming Smith a Roli Seaboard RISE 49 to jam on the new update.
