LaDiDa – Reverse Karaoke and CDM’s view

CDM (always a good read) has this post on LaDiDa. I posted about this app before which composes music for you based on what you sing into it.

I think I’m going to treat myself to this app and find a quiet corner to see what it can do.

Good Jasuto review / tutorial

This is a great review / tutorial for Jasuto. I’ve been using Jasuto since it came out, and I found it useful.

I think that if you were thinking of buying this app or had been put off then reading this excellent post on jasuto would make you decide to jump in.

Everyday Looper

Everyday Looper is a new loop app coming to the iPhone soon. The developer Mancing Dolecules (yes, that is the name of the developer) has sent me some details:

  • A “no button” user interface. Tap or swipe on displayed waveforms to play / pause / stop / record / change volume / erase.
  • Auto-normalization of each track to reach their maximum non clipped volume by the swipe of a finger.
  • Master Limiter to not worry about clipping after tracks mixing.
  • Metronome track generator to create a X clicks at Y BPMs base track.
  • Quantized to loop recording, as an option.
  • Load/Save your loops. Auto-save between sessions.
  • Export them to your computer over WiFi.
  • Up to 45 seconds of recording for each track.

Who is it for ?

  • Guitarists/Singers/Beatboxers/… : Metronome, Quantization and simplified Volume Management are here for you.
  • Sound Torturers : Try ultra short loops, feedbacked loops or manually sliced recording.

To be noted : This app is all about recording. No pre-recorded samples are included and iPod Touch users will need on external microphone.

It looks interesting, and the interface control looks like it might be fun to work with too.

T-Pain contest

Another contest where the prize is $5000:

Since its release a few weeks back, “I Am T-Pain” has hit No. 1 in the iTunes app store, sold more than a quarter-million copies and more than 4.1 million performances have been recorded within the application.

To celebrate, Smule, the makers of the “I Am T-Pain” app, have put together a contest that offers $5,000 in cash (and, of course, a replica of T-Pain’s “Big Ass Chain” – $47 value, approximate weight of 10 lbs).

Contestants would need to create a video of themselves performing the Lonely Island/”SNL” hit “I’m on a Boat” – “I’m On A Boat (ft. T-Pain)” . Go here for more info:
