Melody Live by Colin Hallett

Last month Colin Hallett released Melody Live; a node-based composition app that reminds me of Jasuto. Over the weekend Melody Live was updated with Audiobus support.

Melody Live iTunes Description:

Using a straightforward interface, Melody Live allows you to quickly create and visualise your compositions.

With control over the rate and chance of a note, you can create loops that gradually change and morph.

Melody Live can sync to any DAW or audio host via Audiobus, Inter-App Audio or midi.

No ads or in-app purchases.

With thanks to AudioKit.


Complete control of a node's sound
Control the rate and chance each node will play
Connect nodes to form chords
Reverb and filter FX pad
Compatible with Inter-App Audio and Audiobus
Sync tempo via midi

Note -

Open your app with finder before connecting to Audiobus or with Inter-App Audio :)

deltAdata - Liquid Gold

There are some things in life which seem like inevitabilities, and others that are merely looming certainties. Becoming your parents is an example of the former, while falling into the rabbit hole of modular synthesis is the latter for YouTuber deltAdata. He's trying to stave off this fate by sinking all of his money into gear for home brewing. He further tries to convince himself that he doesn't even need a modular rig, because he's already got great apps that can be used modularly.

Video Description:

Hello ! i made a paraphonic patch of thor to avoid falling into the void of modular gear aquisition, and i put some footages of my last brewing english pale ale on top of it !

recorded with line 6 vx sonic port, iphone 6 with audioshare and some Crystaline reverb.

Thanks for watching ! ✌

Koala: Creating Samples & Processing Sounds Externally

YouTuber Pete Sasqwax shows us how he's been developing his samples for Koala, using external gear. If you're interested in Koala Sampler, you should definitely check out his other 4 videos on the app.

Video Description:

Video 5 is the KOALA video that doesn't feature KOALA at all. How is that possible? There's only one way to find out...

Obviously, you don't have to use KOALA to utilise any of these techniques in your music - and it's only a 20 minute or so video so it's far from exhaustive. The purpose is simply to give some examples so that you can take the idea and let it take you to places I've probably not even considered going to.
