Sunvox 1.1 on my Axim and other thoughts …

Thanks to the anonymous commenter who left this comment on my last post about Sunvox:

What model of axiom are you using? The idea of having it on a phone still sounds the most appealing to me. Always on and always with me is ideal plus a few hardware keys are nice as i think the dev said he would include user defined keymaps at some point.
I’ve just made a couple of silly quick bits of music in sunvox and im hoping to see:
1. Macro objects in the patch view. It can get crowded fast in there and being able to group sections inside their own boxes would make things a lot easier to handle.
2. Some work on usability in the arranger view. It feels a bit awkward, can’t be edited whilst music is playing and he seems to have used “clone” and “copy” to mean the opposite things to every other tracker I’ve used.
3. A long user updated list of devices that work with sunvox and their limits/benefits. So far you seem to be doing the most on this but if a few bits of really usable, mobile hardware are found that feel right in form and spec it could really take off.

To answer your question, the Axim I’m using is a Dell Axim x51 running Windows Mobile 5. I agree with all of your comments on the app. I’m glad to see it being updated regularly even with the very big wishlist it is carrying.

And I was pleased to see how well id did in the Palm Sounds most innovative app of 2008 poll. Here’s to bigger and better things for Sunvox in 2009.

Generator from Studio Six Digital


Generator is a new app from Studio Six Digital who have developed a number of audio analysis apps including RTA, ETC, and SPL. Generator is priced at £2.99 which isn’t that cheap by app store standards.

There have been a number of analysis apps on the app store so far but I haven’t really covered them in detail as yet.

More app ideas?

Following up on the post the other day about app ideas I was thinking about Moo Cow Music. All their apps so far have focused on making real instruments available on the iPhone platform such as Pianist, Organist, and Guitarist, so I wondered if they would continue that theme for any new releases?

If they do, then my suggestion for Moo Cow Music would be something like, Percussionist. A percussion only app that would allow you to play a wide range of percussive instruments from all over the world and overdub them into patterns that could be exported to WAV files or integrated with something like Beatmaker.

I think that would be a really fun app to play around with.

Maximum VL-Tone cheese


I found this site following a link from Synthtopia. It has lots of excellent VL-1 goodness and even some ADSR voice codes for you to try with your VL-1.

SunVox 1.1 on my Axim


Having tried to use Sunvox on my Treo 750 with very poor results I thought I’d find the same on my Axim. However, the results were in fact excellent, and possibly even better than on a Palm device.

I started looking at the sequencer aspects of Sunvox and played one of the demo songs. I guess I’d forgotten just how amazing a piece of software Sunvox is. It made me realise that I really need to do something more with this app and finally get my head around it in depth.

Organist updated


Organist from MooCowMusic gets an update:

V1.1 – Added various interface tweaks

  • You can change the graphical style of the organ from church to electric.
  • Notes and chords can be held while scrolling the keyboard, allowing a more fluid style of playing. You can even hold down a chord, scroll to a higher octave, hold down some more keys, and then individually release the keys of the lower chord one by one.
  • Scroll lock buttons have been added in Dual Keyboard mode to allow you to hide the navigation buttons to avoid accidentally pressing them while playing.

SurfaceDJ: First look


Well, I said I’d post about this app again. Well, it actually is quite a lot of fun. It isn’t a serious music app in any way, but the concept is worth following. Basically you move a series of of coloured objects on the screen and their position determines their volume. Very simple, but actually a lot of fun.

At this stage the app is really quite limited. However, if you could add your own loops, or record them it could be more fun. For now it is free, and it is a good concept to start with. I hope that the developer refines it.
