Thoughts on Mujik

Since starting to use this app it has been a complete pleasure. I have to admit, I’m not sure quite what I was expecting from Mujik at the beginning, and I think to some degree I was overwhelmed by the beauty of the interface shown in the videos.

In many ways it reminds me of Electroplankton on the DS although in some ways with less possibilities. The interface itself is just a complete joy to use and simple enough to be fun for children too which I think is a big plus. If children can get interested in engaging music making then that is a big step in the right direction as far as I’m concerned.

I would like some enhancements to Mujik of course, but then you’d expect nothing else from me would you? Here’s a run down of what I’d have in my list:

Be able to start and stop a song / track (whatever we want to call it)
Record the track and store it / export it
Use the track with other apps (I don’t want to get into the discussion of recent days again here though)
More instruments and/or instrument controls

I think that’s probably enough for now.

I am really enjoying this app in a big way and I’d recommend it to anyone. Go enjoy some Mujik!

Today in 2006: Capers, the one that got away

When I first started to hunt around for music making software on my Palm IIIx I stumbled over Capers, and was really excited by the prospect of a replacement operating system for the Palm OS that would focus on making music only.

I had high hopes for Capers which in the end came to nothing. I did write to Brian Whitman for months asking him to release the code so that someone else could maybe do something with it, but in the end nothing happened.

A shame, but I expect that there are thousands of software projects like this which never saw the light of day. Never mind.

There’s still room for TrakAx Mobile

TrakAx is still a great app on Wndows Mobile, and the desktop too (although I’ve never used it there). I was hoping to see some more features come into TrakAx Mobile, but sadly it hasn’t been updated in a while, and even then it was the VGA version which got all the good stuff.

Having said all of that, it is still worth using, and I did a couple of things with it ages ago which I was pleased with at the time.

Here’s one I like, and the soundtrack was made with Griff:

Will we ever see a trackax for iPhone, or an update to the WinMo version? Who knows, it is a shame that it hasn’t moved in a long time, but that’s the way with software.

I’m hoping to still use trakAx where I can, so maybe I’ll do some more little films using it soon.

Whatever happened to that Line6 thing?

When Apple announced iPhone OS 3.0 they demoed an app and hardware from Line6, which if I remember right all went wrong on the day? Anyway, whatever happened to all that? I had a look at their site and couldn’t find anything at all.

Anyone know if it is still happening?

Spoke first impressions

Took a first look at Spoke this morning. I like the freedom of being able to put beats anywhere, but there seems to be a lag between going from one pattern to another, and I think it does need a wider range of samples in there.

Nice DopplerPad track

This MP3 is using a new unreleased version of DopplerPad I think. I’m sure I can hear some new features in there. Really like the track though.

Nanoloop keyboard on eBay

I don’t think that I’ve ever seen anything like this before, but it looks like a great way to use LSDJ live.

iLounge on Sony luring iPhone devs to PSPGp

Same story as yesterday, but a different manufacturer. This time Sony is poaching, or trying to poach iPhone devs to port their apps to it’s PSPGo platform.

It looks like PSPGo titles will be priced in a similar way to iPhone apps too. More at iLounge.

MeTeoR, will there ever be an update?

I’ve been a big fan of MeTeoR since it came out. It is a must on my Axim rebuild list. But I wonder if we’ll ever see anything else come along for the first software based DAW? MeTeoR came out in May 2007 and has seen some small improvements since then, but nothing on the scale of the kind of regular updates you see for iPod Touch / iPhone apps.

A while back I wrote a post comparing it to iPhone multi-tracks at the time when RecTools08 hadn’t come out. Now I think that if RecTools can get some effects into it then it could outdo MeTeoR.

In so many ways windows mobile has been left behind, and the impact for users is that great apps like MeTeoR don’t make financial sense to invest in.

Will it change in the future? Maybe, but microsoft will need to to a lot to catch up and make it worthwhile for developers to put effort into great software like MeTeoR.

New stuff on Palm Sounds

Thanks to those who responded to the poll on what you’d like to see in Palm Sounds. I will take away the results and give it serious thought and attention and come back within a week or two with what I’m planning to do about it all next.
