Thoughts on Bebot

I mentioned Bebot a while back and never got around to giving you a bit more information about it. In many ways Bebot is a lot like other theremin-esque (is that a word?) apps available on the app store. However, as a number of people have pointed out, there is more to this app than meets the eye. It is in fact quite deceptively versatile.

The app does give you a small amount of control over sound and waveform, together with the scale and a couple of effects, all of which helps a lot. However, the really impressive thing for me was the number of touches it would accept. Four simultaneous notes was really good.

I’d like to see some accelerometer functionality in the app, and maybe a record function too. But it is good as it stands.

Kaossilator and iShred

I was jamming with a friend the other day, he was a using a kaosillator, and I was mucking about on my iTouch. It struck me just how many music apps I have for the Touch, and how many can be used for jamming / performing.

I did a bit with Bebot, and a few other apps, but iShred was really useful for jamming and noodling about. I can’t recommend it more.

I just wish I’d taken some pictures or recorded the audio, or videod any of it, but I never thought of it in time. Never mind.

Some work in progress

I thought you might be interested in some of the stuff I am (very slowly) working on. I always seem to have loads of half finished, or started off ideas lying around all over the place. Anyway, I hope you like this, it is of course, not finished.

Anyone try GameSalad as yet?

I’ve only just started having a poke around in the GameSalad Alpha. It looks quite interesting. The idea that you can make a bunch of games on your own and then deploy them without writing a single line of code is very neat.

I’m not sure how this will work on the iPhone, but I’m sure they have it worked out. If anyone else has had a look at this then please let me know.

Trippy H

Having posted on trippy h, the little app for game boy that sits inside a camera cart, I thought I’d see if I could track one down. Well, I did. On eBay, and only £5. So I decided to buy it, and it has arrived.

I’ll post up a couple of pictures of the device itself in a day or so, but I don’t think screen shots are going to be possible as Concretedog tells me that the greyscale screen is no good for taking pictures of.

Anyway, if anyone has any other suggestions of what I could do with a gameboy pocket (as now I have one), I’d appreciate them. Or indeed if you have any stories of what you’ve done with your GB Pocket to make music, or anything else interesting for that matter, just get in touch in the usual way.

Thinking about Noise IO Pro

I was showing a friend my iPod Touch the other day and explaining some apps. As I showed him Noise IO Pro it suddenly dawned on me just how powerful the application is and how much you can do with it.

I think it becomes easy to forgot apps like this when new ones are coming out all time. I think I should spend a little more time with it now.
