Make has this post on a very nice looking little optical theremin.
Auteureist update on what is coming in the 1.3 version and current status.
P is for Pattern Music
Pattern Music is a great app for composing without a score. I like the pattern music doesn’t restrict you in terms of how pattern length can be used to create evolving compositions, and I really think I’m going to have to get back to using it a lot more soon.
P is for PianoFly
Pianofly Pro Synth is the first app from miniMusic, developer of great music apps for the original Palm OS. PianoFly is a great FM synth app giving a wide variety of sounds and a highly useable keyboard.
P is for PianoStudio
PianoStudio is a really interesting app for playing and making piano based compositions. The approach to creating and using sequences is unique in my experience and moves away from more standard piano roll or record / playback approaches.
P is for ProChords
I have to admit that I’ve not spent enough time with ProChords to get my head into it properly. It has the promise of an app that could be really useful, and I will get around to finding that out for myself soon.
P is for Phoenix Studio
P is for Palm Buzzer
PalmBuzzer is a very simple loop playing app for the old Palm OS. It simply allows you to trigger around 9 samples from a screen and that’s all. Although very simple it is very handy.
P is for PixiLang
PixiLang is a pixel language which lets you make interesting demos and visual applets that can run on Palm / Pocket PC and desktop. It is from the maker of the great Sunvox app, and is available for free. There are some great applets available for it like a drum app and a whole tracker too. For more info check out Warmplace.
P is for Protein DS
Protein[DS] is a sample manipulator for the DS platform. Sadly it doesn’t seem to be in development any more.
P is for Palm
P is for PMA-5
Today’s post was brought to you by the letter P.
YouTube via Denkitribe — May 15, 2010 — “My second attempt in circuit bending the monotron. You can control the monotron with Nunchuk’s accelerometer and analog stick. I used todbot’s WiiChuck adaptor to connect the Nunchuk to the Arduino.
Interesting looking instrument from Roger Linn, and thoughts from CDM.
I hadn’t checked for a while, but it seems that there’s now two versions of Layers for the iPad. A standard and a pro edition. The pro edition allows you to email a layered PSD file out of your work as well as giving you additional layer tools and more layers to work with.
For a pro edition it isn’t badly priced either, so worth checking out both to see what’s right for you.
Not the traditional Palm Sounds type of software to talk about, but this post at CreativeApplications caught my attention.
I do like the idea of musical games, or musical software that makes entry into making music easier for anyone who has never tried it before. I also like the idea that it can be fun, and Inkstrumental seems like a step in that direction. The downside seems to be that the app creates same sounding tracks, but given that it is fun and colourful hopefully it’ll appeal to children and get them into making music.
The competition finishes today Sunday 16th May so you’ve still got a little time to enter.
