The Mobile Music Alphabet: C is for …

Day 3 of the mobile music alphabet. Today’s letter is C.

C is for Circuit Synth

As I’m sure you’re aware Circuit Synth is on sale today as part of Palm Sounds 4th birthday celebration.

When I started the blog back in 2006 I don’t think I could imagine that an app like Circuit Synth could appear for a mobile device, and yet here we are in 2010 and Circuit Synth gives you a little modular in your iPhone or iPod Touch.

Circuit Synth is a great app for experimenting and learning how things work. I’ve really enjoyed using it since I bought it, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what’s in version 2.

C is for Curtis Heavy


Curtis is one of those apps that I keep coming back to. Curtis is always fun to use and often produces unusual and unexpected results, which is one of the reasons I keep coming back to it I guess. Now that the Strange Agency has brought Sound Scope Space to the iPad I wonder if they’ll do the same for Curtis?

C is for Capers

Capers is a really old project for the Palm OS that never came about. The idea was to have a whole OS that would run on a Palm PDA. This OS would be dedicated to making music. What a lovely idea! Sadly it never came to much. There was some talk of the developer releasing the code a while back, but that didn’t happen either. So I guess that capers is the one that got away.

C is for cellDS

Good to get a DS homebrew app in to the mobile music alphabet. cellDS has been around for a while, and is a permanent resident on my DS.

C is for Circuit Bent


It is fair to say that not all circuit bending is handheld, but I still think that it is worth putting in the mobile music alphabet. If you’re interested in getting into handmade and circuit bent music you could do a lot worse than getting Nic Collins book.

Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking

and finally, C is for Casio VL-Tone


No mobile music alphabet would be complete with out the great VL-1. The VL-1 was one of the first mobile music instruments I ever owned, and I am still amazed that they go on eBay for good prices to this day.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s alphabet, this post was brought to you by the letter C

Apple in trouble over new developer licence?

MacRumors has this post on Apple facing a federal antitrust inquiry over a change made to its iPhone developer agreement last month prohibiting developers from using cross-compilers to create their applications.

Of course, we all know that the change to the developer licence was about Adobe and Flash, but surely Apple’s lawyers would have seen this one coming?

I wonder will it amount to anything?
