Another DS Homebrew synth?

Anyone get to try out this DS Synth I stumbled over it and wondered if anyone had any pictures or video?

Indamixx


I found out about this from the Trinity Audio site This device looks really interesting. There seems to be a good range of applications bundled with it, but it is a really expensive device at $1,299.

Make ringtones from your camera



This seems to be a strange application that turns camera input into sound on Symbian devices. Interesting I guess …

Turn your handset into an experimental visually controlled synthesizer and create instant ringtones from camera input

New version of PixiLang on the way …

According to the night radio forum there’s a new version of Pixilang on the way, and after that the updated version of SunVox, with a load of new bells and whistles:

* new module: delay
* new module: reverb
* FM
* LFO
* stylophone
* zoom in pattern editor
* parallel synth playing
* OSX port
* switch instruments / sampler etc by using the hardware buttons

PalmBuzzer 1.2 Support for loops


PalmBuzzer now has support for looped sounds as well. I know that this is a very simple little application, but I think it is quite handy to have something that is good for just setting off loops and samples. Perhaps more useful if you’re using it alongside lots of other devices in a live setting.

Wrong Assumptions about TuneStudio


Whilst many reviews of the TuneStudio rave about how innovative it is and all that kind of thing, this is one of the first that I’ve found that actually points out the main issue with the device, in that it is not a multi-tracker.

Although the first part of this review from Sound and Vision does give the device a glowing introduction, it balances out nicely and is worth reading from that perspective.

MixPad thoughts


I’ve been using MixPad lately and quite enjoying the nature of the sounds it uses. However, I’ve got some suggestions and thoughts about how it could be improved. I thought I’d check the miniMusic site for details of what the next updates are likely to be for MixPad. According to the miniMusic development calendar MixPad will get the following updates:

MixPad 1.1 change tempo, instrument transpose
MixPadPro 1.0 Record and edit MIDI files

Well I think those updates would be very useful, but I’d like to add some more things:

  • Instrument change
  • Being able to patch multiple SoundPad banks to a single track
  • Save settings for an individual MIDI file
  • Export to WAVE

I think MixPad could be a really handy little application with a few more features. Let’s hope it get’s updated soon.
