Remembering Mixtikl 1

Thinking about the launch of Mixtikl V2 in just a few weeks I remembered getting my hands on a beta of Mixtikl V1 back in December of last year. Reading that post again made me realise that Mixtikl is more than just a single application and more like a suite of apps all working together at the same time.

I’m hoping that this approach doesn’t cause issues with Apple’s approval process in the same way as other apps have experienced.

I’m still planning on doing a post on what Mixtikl is really about and what it does as it doesn’t really fit into a single category. More soon.

No Berna for your iPhone

I got in touch with the creator about the possibility of an iPhone version of Berna. Here’s the reply:

Berna is written in Max/MSP language. C74 is not planning for the moment to create a runtime version for the iPhone,
so I can’t compile a version of berna for such hardware. I’m so sorry.
But really, if I could, I would really do it…

It is a shame, but understandable. So you’ll just have to enjoy all the great stuff you can do with Berna on your desktop.

First thoughts on Aurora

It has been a little while since Aurora for windows mobile was released from 4Pockets, so I thought I’d give some thoughts on it today.

To start with the interface and graphics on screen are good and the application has low latency when playing. Aurora’s Monome type interface is great for non musicians and musicians alike, and the note value does appear briefly on a piano keyboard.

i can’t seem to change the length of individual notes, but this might just be me as I haven’t had enough time to figure out the whole app as yet.

I like the kaossilator like scale function, I think that was a good addition to this application, as are machine gun, atomizer, random and xy pad qhich are all good and fun to use.

Aurora’s synth engine seems reminds me a lot of 4pocket’s audiobox micro composer software, and allows for plenty of creativity. The on board sounds are very good. The VCF has its own ADSR but could do with a level control so that smaller / larger filter envelopes can be applied, and with the pad synth you have to wait for harmonics to be “recalculated” when changes are made (also like audiobox).

Overall Aurora is great fun and allows for quick creation of mobile music, which is what it is all about after all.

I’m going to spend some more time with Aurora soon and write a bit more about it soon.

If you’ve tried out Aurora and have comments then please let me know.

Apple starts to lift veil on approval process

AppleInsider posts on Apple starting to lift the veil on the approval process for developers. Whilst on the one hand I can see that this is a good thing, it still doesn’t explain why some apps like Touch DJ stay in Approval for almost 8 weeks with no explanation whatsoever.

Reverb for iPhone

I posted about this app a while back. Reverb has arrived and also has support for ioLibrary from Amidio. This app let’s you take you audio file and apply complex reverb settings to it.
