Whisper for iPhone

Whisper is one of those apps that I never got around to trying out. I’d like to, but the previous app from this developer I found a bit disappointing, maybe I will someday.

Anyway, the app has been updated with some fixes. If you have tried it out please let me know what you think.

New Zune to feature xBox integration?

The Apple Blog has a good post on the rumours around Microsoft launching an iPod Touch competitor in the shape of a new Zune device with tight integration with their successful xBox platform.

Will it work? Maybe, but I doubt it will be much use for mobile music. What do you think?

Here’s another excellent looking app from those guys at YUDO. An 8bit synth and sequencer as promised by them with an expected release date next month. Here are the details.

With Truck manager on Sequencer screen, Composing is easy with Piano Roll format. In addition, Voice Change is equipped to produce different Voices in the song. 4 tracks are the maximum limit.

★ Voice Edit
The nostalgic sounds can be created here by turing knobs and operating sliders on Synthesizer screen. In 8Bitone, a group of values which are set on the Synthesizer screen is called “VOICE”.
Each one song can contains up to 128 Voices. In addition, playing with keyboard on the bottom of the screen can be enjoyable too. Move the wheel to control the Pitch.

★ Edit Controller
Edit Controller on the screen right side will show 3 types of monitor. Selection is operated by touching each of the monitor`s name.

★ Transcontroller
PLAY, STOP, COPY, PASTE, DELETE function for songs are performed in the Transcontroller.
In 8Bitone, Transcontroller will be turned on with TCR button of the screen upper part.

★ Recording
CD monoral qualitity (..wav files) can be recorded here, However, the CD quality may not have much meaning for those electric sounds.

★ PC Sync
The recorded datas can be sent to personal computers on the same WiFi network. They are downloadable from the WEB browser of desktop and laptop also. You can listen by iPod and use them for beep sounds on iPhones etc.

It looks excellent, and a nice piano roll sequencer too. Can’t wait !
