The Killer app is … not an app?

I got this press release today and it reminded me of a comment from Pete Cole saying that the killer app for the iPhone would be the ability to use the device as a tool kit where lots of applications could work together and pass audio or MIDI from one app to another.

The today I get this:

Sonoma Wire Works has launched the Mobile Audio Product Interaction (MAPI) Partner Program to join forces with other companies interested in making audio tools work together to create the best user experience.

It goes on …

So far the products include FourTrack and DopplerPad. Retronyms and Sonoma Wire Works will work together to add features that allow users to easily move between DopplerPad and FourTrack, the most comprehensive multitrack recorder on the iPhone. More announcements about these products and others coming soon.

Which is brilliant in it’s own right. I can’t wait to use DopplerPad and FourTrack together! However, there’s more. A call for developers to get involved:

Join a growing collection of quality audio tools working toward interoperability in order to enhance music creation on mobile devices.

Initially this program is geared toward iPhone developers, however other platforms continue to be evaluated. Products are reviewed and accepted on a case by case basis (based on quality, possibilities of interaction with other products involved in the program, and other criteria).

If this can work and enough developers get behind it then we could potentially see real benefits from apps working together and that has got to solve lots of the problems that people have had to date.

I think this is excellent news, but I’d be really interested in developer and user feedback. Let me know what you think.

DopplerPad for iPhone

I’ve been waiting for this for a while now and today it is live at last. I think it is fair to say that this app has a lot promised, and I’m hoping that it will deliver in a big way. With multiple instruments and sampling too it sounds almost too good to be true.

DopplerPad is described as:

DopplerPad is an expressive touch instrument designed exclusively for iPhone & iPod Touch. Quickly create and perform musical hooks, phrases and loops with a variety of custom synth and sample-based instruments. Make samples on the fly and weave them into compositions

The app was made by the Retronyms, who are behind a number of other excellent apps. I can’t wait to get using this one, and as soon as I’ve got my head around it I’ll post some thoughts.
