Interesting track from Concretedog. Well worth a listen, and I might have to buy that book myself soon!
There isnt much info on this at the moment, but it does look like this is the first multitrack recorder for the iPhone. It appears very simple indeed at the moment, and I’m expecting as it is called a “lite” version that there may at some point be a more functionally rich version, but I get we’ll have to wait and see. The developer’s site has no information at present so this really is early days.

MixMeister have updated their previously free DJ application. The new “plus” version adds support for recording your own samples and using them. Of course this now excludes iPod Touch users, which is a shame.
PaklSound has been updated to version 1.10 adding another layer to the sequencer as well as giving each layer a different colour.
CDM has an update on the open sound control iPhone client. The images provide a real clue as to what’s coming next.
The new Palm Treo is a nice looking device, and has a great set of features, but at £399 I’m not sure that I’m going to be jumping in any time soon. However, looking at the features it does seem like a step in the right direction towards a device that can do lots of the stuff I really want.

Portable is the key to me, i travel a lot because of my job so you can imagine.
The MBR is really amazing, i’ve been using Roland/Boss for years so it feels like home to me since i have it, the interface is easy to understand and there is enough buttons to have the important things at your fingers.
I use the machines this way: guitar plugged to MBR guitar input and Palm with Bhajis loops to the aux in.
When i have a guitar idea just put a simple pattern running in BL or sometimes i came up with a BL idea and add guitars, then i record all togheter like a little clip.
Just like a notes recorder, and when the song is in my mind i re-proggram the .bjm, render to wav, import to MBR and overdub all the tracks i need.
Sometimes i mix in the MBR or Reaper according to the number of tracks and my mood 😉
I could use the Live function like you said but i’m not into live performances now.
I do agree with the MBR comments. It is one of the easiest devices of this type I’ve used.
