MiJam Minis …

Strange toys or what …

I’ve posted on the MiJam products before, but here are some new ones. I kind of like the look of them.

The mi Jam Mini Keyz is a miniature keyboard with key icons. It can also be played as a standalone keyboard or with a music device. Just turn it on, select the built rhythm, tempo and volume and tap the keys to create your masterpiece. Or plug in your music device and play along with that.

The mi Jam Mini Drumpad has icons for snare drums, bass drum, tom tom and cymbals In standalone mode you can just turn it on, plug in your headphones or external speaker, activate the built-in rhythm, set the tempo and volume and tap away at the icons with your fingertips to create your own sound. Or plug in your music device and play along with your favorite music…either way ..its your music ..your way.

The mi Jam Mini Guitar is a mini guitar which plays riffs and chords. Each sound is built-in and like the other mi Jam Minis. The guitar can be played standalone or with a music device. The mi Jam Mini Guitar is played by placing a finger on the mini fret board and then strumming the strum bar to produce a sound…the strum bar works in two directions and can play a chord or a riff.

Last but not least is the mi Jam Mini Mixer. This is a super DJ mixer right in your pocket with a range of built in sound effects. Just like the other mi Jam Minis, the Mixer can be played on its own or with a music device and with headphones or external speakers. The mi Jam Mini Mixer is played by switching it one, selecting the effects and the scratching the two discs in either direction with your thumbs or fingertips.

They do look quite cool really, it would be nice if they were a bit more than toys

Mobile Studio: Palm OS4: Theremini

Theremini emulates a Theremin using the speaker in Palm devices and the pen to control amplitude and frequency. It is also able to control MIDI sound modules in real time.

Theremini is of course the predecessor to AxisPad from miniMusic. It is a fantastic little application and one of the first I ever used on my palm. As it worked with external MIDI devices I used to use it with my old Swivel Systems SG20 module. I do miss that old MIDI module, I wish I’d kept it now, they’re pretty much impossible to get hold of these days, I don’t think I’ve seen one on eBay for years.

Theremini is one of those applications that you just have to play with once in a while. For the same reason I love AxisPad, and I’m really looking forward to when it can record and export as well.

Theremini is really worth a try if you’ve never played with an app like it, and you should check out Pete Moss’ web site too, as it is quite an interesting place!
