RJDJ World Tour

RJDJ are going on the road soon. Starting in Tokyo in September then heading for London, New York, Los Angeles, and Berlin. So we can expect new and interesting scenes in the coming months.

If you manage to get along to one of these (and I might try and get to the London Sprint) please let me know how it goes.

NESynth for iPhone coming soon

8Bit composer might be getting some competition soon … (via Matrixsynth)

UPDATE: For some reason this app isn’t on the UK or US stores. It only appears on the Japan store!!! I’ve written to the developer to ask them to sort it out.

Brief update on OP-1

And when I say brief I really mean it. In fact, I think that this post is longer than theirs. Still, good to know that they are still there and working on the OP-1.

Could this be it?

Lots of rumours today about the alleged mac tablet. I have to say that if it does look like this I can’t see what all the fuss is about.

I like the idea of a 10 inch iPod Touch, but not with OSX mobile. I’d rather have leopard or snow leopard running on something small but something I had more control over.

Who knows if it is even real, there always seem to be a round of these stories all at once and I think they’ve been going at least a couple of years if not more. One thing is certain, if Apple want to enter this market they’ll need to do something real innovative.

The Gadgeteer is 12 years old

I know that this isn’t really a mobile music story, but it is amazing. 12 years in fantastic. I’ve been reading the Gadgeteer since around 2001 and it has maintained a sold flow of reviews and news in that time. What’s more the Gadgeteer has a bunch of giveaways if you’re in the US to celebrate.

Here’s to many more years of the gadgeteer.

Returning to Clie (another retro day)

Having just got my copies of iziBasic and ViziBasic I’ve decided not to use my trusty Tungsten T3 and instead go back to an old NX73V (Sony Clie).

So, why this change in direction? Well, simply because the Clie is in many ways better suited to this kind of activity. This is because the NX73V has a keyboard built in.

I first owned this device (I’ve sold and bought it back a few times now) from new some years ago, and at the time it really was the swiss army knife of PDAs. It has a camera and will shoot video, a keyboard and very large screen which can be swivelled around to work in a number of different positions.

By today’s standards the processor is woefully slow, running at only 200mhz (or something like that). Even so it has other benefits and drawbacks too.

The NX73V has a built in sound chip, which I think is the same as the chip in the Handspring springboard module which I used to have (I wish I’d kept that now).

One big drawback with the NX73V was Sony’s implementation of Palm’s sound API, or rather lack or it. When the NX73V came out at first it didn’t work with applications like SoundPad or Bhajis Loops etc. However, that all changed when a Japanese developer created a driver called MCA (modern clie audio). This driver has made the Clie work with apps like Microbe and Bhajis and at the time really extended the life of the device.

So the Clie is charging and I’m hoping that this might be a good all round machine for keeping in my bag and making a few apps on the fly for the old Palm platform using iziBasic and ViziBasic, and of course I’ll give the new FastBasic a look too, especially to see if the MIDI function can be used.

iPhone mic

This looks like an excellent mic for the iPhone, although the translation page isn’t too easy to read. I’m hoping it’ll get a decent distributor in the UK.
