Pacemaker as DJ evolution …


Pacemaker DJ has a big feature from mixmag on the evolution of DJ gear.

I just can’t wait to see what the price of the new 2.0 device is going to be.

Noise IO and Beatmaker integration

I managed to try this out for myself last night. In many ways I really did expect it to fail somehow, but it didn’t at all. I recorded a small segment in Noise IO Pro and then went off into Beatmaker and imported it to a pad. It was really straightforward.

This functionality really opens up the doors to doing more interesting things with sounds and sequences in Beatmaker, and if other developers can make their sounds / recordings available to beatmaker for import then things could get really interesting.

If you’ve been using this import and have experiences you want to share, please comment them in here.

Tapestri for iPhone

I posted about Tapestri a few days ago, and now it has turned up on the app store.

StageFeaver for iPhone


Here’s another new iPhone app. This seems to be some kind of effects box for iPhone. StageFeaver looks quite interesting, and reminds me of Pocket Stompbox from 4Pockets, although this doesn’t seem as fully functional. I’d tell you more but the entire write for StageFeaver on the app store seems to be in German, which is not one of my strong points.

Auduino (in the pub?)

I saw this on Synthtopia. Interesting concept (and nice blue light in the box). The sounds reminds me of my project SliderOn, which used a very similar idea but was slower, and was software as well.

Noise IO getting MIDI support soon

The clever people over at Noise IO Pro have just posted this:

Some more great news for you, Noise addicts!

We’ve come down to an agreement with Nonnus of Silicon Studios / iTouchMidi, the author of excellent iTM apps.

This means that soon, Noise.io will get Midi-over-Wi-fi functionality!

Noise.io will be able to connect to time-proven, stable iTouchMidi server desktop programs (available for free, Mac & PC, any DAW).

With Midi functionality, Noise.io will behave exactly like a 21st century synth 🙂

Stay tuned! More information to follow soon!*

All of which is excellent news for users of Noise IO Pro, and of course continues to make the iPhone platform a more interesting and useful place for music.

Mixtikl and MIDI


I finally got some time to use Mixtikl again today. I decided to see what it was like with a few MIDI files. So I exported a MIDI file from Bhajis (running under Styletap) on my Axim and ran it in Mixtikl. The results were really good. I started to try and use the Partikl engine too, but ran out of time. I’m hoping that I’ll get some more time to use this app over the next few weeks, and as I do I’ll post more experiences of it as I go.

More thoughts on Randgrid


I had 10 minutes to play with the latest version of Rangrid today. Whilst in some ways it does resemble Microbe, it doesn’t have the export facility and plug in architecture that you’ll be used to if you’re a use of Microbe.

In other ways it reminds me of the Korg DS-10, but again, without the patch functionality.

Overall it is a nice app, but I’d like to see it go further. With export to WAV and maybe even Beatmaker integration too?

I like that lots of these apps are popping up and developing into nice little feature rich mini studios. I think it is good to have lots of choice when you work with mobile apps.
