Noise IO Newsletter

I got the Noise IO Pro newsletter today. Here’s the news:

Just wanted to let you know that update to v. 1.2 will be available within several days – we’re waiting for Apple’s approval. It will contain all we promised to do: record, beatmaker integration, .wav/.caf export, built-in server (with audio preview) and even some more features. As usual, more info is available at our website:

We’re also working on 2-way midi-over-wifi but cannot tell right now when it will be implemented.

I think the MIDI feature will be really interesting. Noise IO Pro just keeps getting better and better.

Innovative App 2008: Poll Results

I’ll probably take the poll down in a day or two, so I thought it would be worth recording the results of the Palm Sounds Most Innovative Application of 2008 Poll:

1st – Sunvox 1.1 with 29% of the votes
2nd – Mixtikl with 16% of the votes
3rd – Beatmaker with 13% of the votes
4th – Korg DS-10 with 11% of the votes
5th – Jointly Noise IO Pro and RJDJ, both with 8% of the votes
6th – Jointly SynthPond and Nitrotracker, both with 3% of the votes

Interesting results. I’ll have to do it again for next year and possibly sooner.

Another DJ app for the iPhone? Yes, but it does look quite interesting and is currently Free!

When I’ve had a chance to play with I’ll post again.

Some ideas for apps

Thanks to D. Kristian for these app ideas for the touch / iphone. I guess they could be as appropriate on those platforms as any other.

Suggestions for new iPhone/iPod Touch apps for 2009.

Since I imagine many developers are regular readers of this blog, I would like to take the opportunity to suggest the following:

1. A “paint to sound” or image to sound app similar to Coagula or Metasynth; it wouldn’t have to be real-time, but that could also be nice.

2. A Mellotron app (based on some of the smaller freebie Mellotron VSTi’s like Nanotron or Tapeworm.

3. An analogue synth/sequencer app that isn’t a 303 clone. I love Finger Bassline, but something with two oscillators and a delay would be great.

4. An update of Bloom that would allow you to program or import your own sounds, or at least nix the piano so that only the backing pads remain.

Happy new year to all, and thanks for the great blog, apps, and inspiration!

I think that these are all good ideas. So I thought, why not start a new discussion on the Palm Sounds Group.
