On the train with … Audiobox Micro Composer

For the last few days I’ve been using Audiobox from 4Pockets in the morning. It has been ages since I used this application, but I reloaded it to my Axim a week ago as I’ve started the process of building up the device with all the music and multimedia stuff I can.

Audiobox had always confused me in the past. But now I’ve found it really straightforward to get on with. I don’t know what’s changed, but I’m getting on with it fine now.

I’ve been using Audiobox for electronic music, and it seems very well suited for that genre. It is a different composing experience from things like Griff and Bhajis, but nonetheless I’m getting on with it without difficulty.

Once I’ve got some examples I’ll post an MP3 or 2.
