CDM posts on forthcoming updates to BeatMaker from Intua.
MeTeoR, the multi-tracker recorder for Windows Mobile has been updated to version 1.1. The main features added to this version are;
1) The ability to make a clip from a selection of a larger clip.
2) A new monitor tab adds the ability to control the input gain and monitor stereo out.
3) The new markers function.
I’ve just loaded this onto my Palm Treo 750v and it is very impressive indeed. I really like the monitor function.
There hasn’t been any update from the Groovestep site for a while, but happily they’re still around and going to make an announcement next month. Excellent!
Music thing posts on the Chimera BC-8 which looks like a lot of fun.
Here’s a really handy video of Intua’s BeatMaker app for iPhone / iPod Touch.
