D is also a very important letter in the mobile music alphabet. So let’s start.
D is for DopplerPad
DopplerPad is a great synth / sequencer / sampler and all round music production app. I often start pieces with something in DopplerPad and then work out from there. When Retronyms added the synth and effects parts of the app it became even more useful. I’m really looking forward to seeing what Retronyms do for DopplerPad on the iPad, whatever it is I’m sure it’ll be great.

D is for DrumTrack8
When DrumTrack8 added paste ability it became a really useful tool in my mobile music making set up. I really like how tweakable it is and how it keeps on getting updates.

D is for Drum Kit Ace
This is a Windows Mobile app, and there aren’t too many around these days. Drum Kit Ace is a game and a drum machine too, but as far as I know it hasn’t been updated in a long time. Shame really.
D is for D-Pod
I know that this is shameless self promotion! D-Pod is a little drum app that I made ages ago using ViziBasic and iziBasic on my Treo 650. Fun, but not entirely useful.
D is for DS-10 / DS-10+
The DS-10 and the + version too are hugely important for mobile music. Getting a music production application into a mainstream handset like the Nintendo DS was a big step forward. It is a shame that the + isn’t coming to Europe, but I’ll content myself with the original.

D is for DP-004/008
Sometimes hardware is what you need. I’ve wanted a Tascam DP-008 ever since I first saw one, and they are reasonably priced, but the money always goes somewhere else!

Electrify gets an update. You can now delete projects and performance has been improved especially when using reverb.
The iPad version of Bleep!Box is getting a bit of a UI overhaul. Looks good. More photos and details here.
RiotFX has had an update with improved latency on older devices and added chorus.

The description for this app is as follows:
PocketSync is a real-time SMPTE Longitudinal Time Code generator for IPhone/IPod/IPad with drop frame/non-drop frame output. It supports 24/25/29.97/30 SMPTE frame rate and selectable 44100/48000 sample rate output.
I’m not entirely sure what it does and for £11.99/$19.99 I’d want to know a lot more about this. Anyone know what this really does?

Audioview now supports AudioX sync in order to sync with other iPhones, iPods or iPads without need to use a computer. Direct audio sharing between iDevices on the same wifi network. Reforge on iPad also supports AudioX.

I do hope that Chris does make these things commercially available, they look like a lot of fun.
