Sometimes I think I shouldn’t look out for these kind of things. You start to find out about stuff, and then what happens? You’re gonna want to buy one.
Well, that’s what I’m starting to think here. There’s an active community of users for this device, and Little GP tracker seems to be in constant development.
It is certainly something I’m going to keep an eye on.
I was thinking about this earlier. At present my experience of mobile music making is restricted to a limited number of devices or device types. Let me explain:
Device I own / or have owned:
– Various Palm OS devices
– Various PocketPC / Windows Mobile devices
– MadPlayer (weird device that generate music via algorithm)
– Laptops in general
Devices I am aware of / would like to own:
– Nintendo DS
Of course, what is left is the stuff I don’t know about, and of course that I can’t comment on.
I did have a little sniff around for any interesting apps running on Symbian, but I could find almost nothing.
I’d be really interested to know of other platforms or devices that are useful for mobile music making.
Another interesting music game rather than app. Looks like this is already interactively set up. I’d imagine that this would be good fun to use with children.
Another simple music application for the DS, but again, another reason to get one?
Yet another reason to have a look at the DS as a viable platform. Ok, only a drum machine at the moment, but some possibilities of getting a softsynth too?
This little application seems to get more and more tempting as time goes by. There’s also a hint of collaborative tracking via wifi to come in the future.
Of course, I’ve no idea who I’d collaborate with, but, nevertheless, very cool stuff.
An excellent suggestion was commented on my previous libretto post. I’ve downloaded the iso image, but having lots of trouble getting the disk image into something that works.
I think I’ll have to do some more research to see how to sort this out.
