The Mobile Music Alphabet: P is for …

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

I bought this and ran it on my first pocket PC , a Jornada 568. A nice little 2 synth / drum type application with some effects too, and I think iti is still available.

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

For me Palm is where my interest in mobile music started. It is a shame that the old hardware and OS were discarded by Palm, they could have done so much more with it.

P is for PMA-5

Still a popular device for making music on the go and they seem to retain their value too.

PMA-5’s at eBay

Today’s post was brought to you by the letter P.

Monochuck: Wii Nunchuk Controlled Monotron

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.

Layers for iPad Pro and Standard Editions

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.

Inkstrumental for iPhone

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.

Nanoloop Cart and an SU10 on eBay

A couple of eBay finds for today. After all the Nanoloop news yesterday here’s a 2.1 cart on eBay.

And also an SU10 going very cheap, but mainly because it is sold without a power supply.

Last Day of the Tweet My Mix Competition

Only today left to go to enter the ‘Tweet My Mix’ competition, so get some mixes in as there’s great prizes to be won!

To enter the competition you’ll need to be able to publish a mix, and to do that you’ll need a working version of Mixtikl of course. You can download the desktop version which will run for 30 days, or you could get yourself a copy of Mixtikl iPhone which is discounted today to just £1.19 / $1.99.

The competition finishes today Sunday 16th May so you’ve still got a little time to enter.

If you need to know how to tweet your mix from Mixtikl, then just Select Mixtikl Menu > Export Mix > Export Mix Tikl for Tweet/SMS and then paste this into your tweet. Done! There’s also a FAQ at the Intermorphic site here.

Happy Mixing, Happy Tweeting!
