TechnoBox studio for iPhone

Synthtopia has this post (as do quite a few today) about a new techno sequencer / studio coming to the iPhone. The interface looks very cool indeed.


technoBox is a virtual techno studio on the go for iPhone / iPod touch, featuring stunningly accurate emulations of three classic boxes: the legendary 303 bass line machine, together with the smooth 808 and punchy 909 drum machines.

technoBox has easy to use sequencing capabilities which lets you tie together patterns, or use it live by improvising pattern switches on the fly!

The drum section features 11 parts with 808 or 909 sounds (for a total of 22 sounds) with variable amount of shuffle per pattern.

technoBox comes with a session manager which allows you to load/save sessions in realtime without stopping the internal sequencer — great for saving realtime improvised patterns without interrupting the audio stream.

Coming soon to the App Store.


  • Authentic 303 emulation based on the ABL2 engine
  • Drum module with selectible 808 or 909 sounds
  • Shuffle with variable amount for drum module
  • Transpose and randomizer for synth module
  • 24 patterns per session (12 for 303, 12 for 808/909)
  • Pattern sequencer with up to 1000 bars
  • Session manager with realtime switching
  • High contrast GUI for use in clubs etc.
  • Supports autorotation to your preferred landscape orientation
  • On board quickstart manual
  • Supports multi-touch for knobs

Ahhhh !!! BUGSound available now (in the US)

MatrixSynth posts on the BUGSound module being available now from Buglabs.

From the last contact I had with them they’re still quite a while away from getting these devices made available in the UK, which is a really big shame.

So, if anyone reading this gets one or knows where there are any good reviews etc please let me know.

On the train with Mixtikl again

I’ve been spending more of my regular train journeys by playing around with Mixtikl. This morning I played with putting together my own mix file. When you start to get your head around how Mixtikl works and how you move from one place to another you start to get to grips with just how much you can do with this little app.

I’m really enjoying using it, and I think it is an app that could be used by just about anyone, musician or not. My next step is to get into the more complex effects processing and see what interesting sounds I can come up with. Maybe I’ll do that tomorrow.

Pianist is 1 year old

I hadn’t realised that this app was a ‘pre-appstore’ app. So, happy birthday Pianist, and well done Moo Cow Music. From the look of this page there’s something new coming to Pianist to celebrate.

Pianist available on the iTunes AppStore

Here’s part two on the making of Loopy by developer Michael Tyson. The article is quite technical overall, but is worth reading.
