AxisPad preview 3 years ago today

3 years ago today the AxisPad preview became available on the miniMusic site. It was a very different world for mobile music back then compared to today, and in 2006 AxisPad was really big news.

I can remember downloading in and playing with it for the first time and really enjoying using it.

I still think that the interface is really very innovative even against today’s standards, and I still use it occasionally too.

Question 2 …

There were some interesting responses to my question earlier today so I thought I’d add another question.

What application or kind of application would make you move to another platform / buy another device?

Here’s a mock up. Looks good doesn’t it.

Ellatron news

Some Ellatron news after a bit of a silence on their blog. They are planning …

an artist special edition Tron. Like your own Rory Gallagher edition strat, but more electronic, and pocket-sized. Should be great.

Sounds, good to me. Another thing to look forward to as the days get shorter and colder.

Check it out at the app store:

TonesynthDS update to 0.23

TonesynthDS version 0.23 is ready to download. Here’s what’s new:

  • Start playing a pattern will not skip the first accord and start immediately after the click.
  • Position led flickering has been decreased.
  • Pattern play pauseing is accurte when you play a test sound. (althoug maybe a little extra delay would be nice)
  • Low pass filter with resonance. Cut frequency starts from 16384Hz. At the right end of the ‘cut’ slider the lpf is turned off, so the resonanc will not work there. At the right end of the ‘res’ slider the original sample is pretty distorted. It is not a bug; it comes from the math. I have left it in. May be it will be good for something.
  • Every calculation have fallen back to 32768Hz. I kept it in 44100 originaly because of the ndsi, but this was just too slow (and not just because more sample should be calculated). I think I will simply create an ndsi version later.
  • A nice big optimalization (not just the base frequency decreasing). Now the sample generation is faster even with the lpf.
  • Selectible scales. (chromatic,ionian,dorian,phrygain,lydian,locrian) You have to regenerate the bank to hear the difference. In every scale the first note is C3. In the previous versions ionian was the default.

Touch DJ device news

Some news on Touch DJ, the Amidio app that’s been in review for weeks:

Touch DJ will work on any device, song loading times are faster on 3GS but perfomance is ok even on 1G devices

I know a few people were wondering if this was going to be another 3GS only app, but it seems like there’s nothing to worry about from Amidio.
